A review by frakalot
The Empty Chair by Diane Duane


Elements help us! I have mixed feelings at the end of this saga. The scale of world building in the Rihannsu series is grand and is handled very well by Duane. The story is persistently interesting, with a perfect execution of intrigue, wit and humour.

I think that Duane gave Spock and the Romulans a unique and believable sense of humour. I also loved the horta as a character with its own cheeky brand of humour.

I don't think the end was an anticlimax. It was at times quite dramatic and tense. I would enjoy more stories that have this cast meeting again in the future. But not right now. I'm after a light read after such an intense series.
