From Publishers Weekly Told as a kind of mythic moral tale, this far-future, action-oriented SF novel, set in an era of space exploration gone awry, opens with this story: for many years, travelers could journey between Earth and a far-away universe by way of a wormhole. Then the wormhole disappeared, leaving a generation of travelers stranded. A long time passed; the stranded invented their own myths and divided themselves into two factions: the pirates and the religious. Both are now seeking three illusive planets, said to be rich in treasure and alien artifacts, that a prophet long ago called the Three Kings. On a routine missionary expedition, the interstellar evangelist ship Mountain (moved by faith)--led by the unorthodox, devout and shrewd Dr. Karl Woodward--makes a promising discovery. Arriving on a planet, Mountain missionaries encounter a group of apparently friendly and cooperative colonists. But it turns out that they are secretly under the control of a refugee band of pirates led by one Captain Sapenza, who attacks the Mountain, only to find that his weapons are no match for the Faithful. In return for mercy, Sapenza gives Woodward directions to the Three Kings, and with the hardiest of the faithful aboard, Mountain travels the perilous path of a wild wormhole to Balshazzar, an Eden-like planet. There's a serpent in this Eden, an alien super-intelligence who challenges Woodward to a contest. Obviously intended to launch a series, this novel is nothing to get excited about: Chalker (Ghost of the Well of Souls, etc.) uses a well-worn plot, rushes past interesting people and places and occasionally slows the pacing with expository lumps. The book does contain some unusual theological explorations but, overall, its intelligence outshines its narrative prowess. (Aug.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal The search for the legendary planetary system known as the Three Kings occupies starfaring humans. When an exploratory crew from The Mountain, a spaceship operated by a colony of religious zealots, lands on an unknown planet, they discover that in order to find the way to their goal, they must first travel through a valley of trials and tribulations. The latest novel by sf veteran Chalker, the beginning of a new series, features the author!s characteristically fresh approach to standard sf themes. Inventive and surprising in concept and execution, this far future tale of faith and survival belongs in most collections. Copyright 2000 Reed Business Information, Inc.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get
the hang of it!
