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.
Nicely involved series want to read more!
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!!!
