Overview

Welcome to the Well World: a construct of an ancient defunct race known as the Markovians. The Well World acts both as the controller of and the gateway to 1560 worlds created by the Markovians at the end of their time. ***

Exiles at the Well of Souls left Mavra Chang captured by the Olborn and partially converted into a beast of burden. Twenty-two years later, Chang has tried to escape numerous times, failing each time...each attempt leading to greater despair. ***

Moreover, one of two tiny hopes has already been destroyed. Two ships had crashed into the Well World: hers in the south and another in the inhospitable Northern Hemisphere. The attempt to recover her ship has ended in the destruction of that ship. ***

But a possible method of traveling to the North may offer a final hope and it ignites a new race between Mavra and her enemies...with the winner poised to gain control of Obie...the super-computer that can manipulate the very fabric of existence. ***

Quest for the Well of Souls is the third book set in the Well World universe.

Sort of a combination of Riverworld and Ringworld, the inhabitants of the Well World are a random mess of alien creatures, all fighting for control, or to leave. There's a ton of opportunity for adventure and strange meetings, and Chalker is one of the best at making such things happen.

I read this series many years ago (over 30?) and it has always been a favorite of mine. It went out of print for many years or I would have read it again earlier. It was just as good the second time around. I am not a big fantasy reader but appreciate more science fiction type work. This series has a bit of both and is exceptionally well written. Be sure to get the whole set before it goes out of print again. It is an EXCELLENT READ!!!
