Garric or-Reise was born the son of an innkeeper in Barca's Hamlet on the Isle of Haft, but through valor and determination became first a prince and then the Regent and successor to the feeble Valence III, King of the Isles. But the Kingdom is weak, its rule barely extending past the island of Ornifal. The Isles need a strong king to bring unity, because danger is coming. Magic is stronger now than at any time since the fall of the Old Kingdom in a cataclysm of uncontrolled magic. Evil is growing in the spaces beyond the world, waiting to complete the destruction begun a millennium before. Only if the Isles are united into a strong New Kingdom can humanity survive. Garric has sworn to become a true Lord of the Isles. Standing with him are his sister, Sharina; his friend and Sharina's lover, the shepherd Cashel; and Cashel's sister, the weaver-witch Ilsa. They have been to Hell and back together in their quest. The four friends and the armies of the Kingdom have undertaken a Royal Progress to renew the bonds of fealty among the Isles. Now they come to Sandrakkan, which fought a long and bloody war with Haft less than a generation ago. On Sandrakkan, Wilduf's Countess, Balila, schemes with her court wizard to destroy the boy king from the hated isle of Haft. Strange evils lurk on demon-haunted Volita, and she will wake them all if necessary to make her husband the new King of the Isles. Rich with action, guile, and heroism in the face of dangers both physical and moral,Master of the Cauldron stands alone or as part of a ground-breaking fantasy epic from David Drake.… (mais)

Another island, another danger. Cashel goes to help his and Ilna's mother, Ilna and Chalcus go to rescue little Merota, and everybody else stays behind and fights. Hahahaha. ( )

All the Isles books follow the same basic pattern, and ‘Master of the Cauldron’ is no exception. Anyone familiar with the series would be able to predict several major plot points before ever cracking the spine.

The group of friends gets separated by magical means almost immediately. Cashiel wanders off on a quest to help a damsel in distress. Sharina ends up sucked through space and time to face villains. Ilna is abrasive and Chalcus is charming. Tenoctris foils powerful wizards whilst being continually self-effacing. Garric spends a lot of time laughing and grinning at comments made by the voices in his head.

That said, and sarcasm aside, the author as always has provided a pleasant read. There's nothing new here, but it's a good story nonetheless, and the book is eminently readable. Unlike some other "fantasy" authors, Drake clearly has a fine appreciation for craftsmanship. He has done his homework, and the world of the Isles is rich in history and detail. Battle scenes show a sense of realism in heroes who get tired and show fear and sometimes even retreat to fight another day. If the individual strands of the plot follow familiar themes, well, if it ain't broke why fix it? ( )

You expect a series to resuse characters. But the books in this series recycle the plot as well. ( )
