      A magic castle with myriad doors leading to different realms? Awesome! DeChancie's prose? Mediocre. But still an enjoyable read for fans of quirky, rather than epic, fantasy.

      Like previous book.This plays out as light reading.It has mix of science and magic, twining together.In ways it plays out like a group of short stories. That work together.Bouncing chapter to chapter. Between the various characters.It flows decent. At the same time, can be annoying.That one aspect has your interest.While another seems to be less important or entertaining.Having you go through that. To get back to the meat of the story.Still, again entertaining. If your looking for something play [...]

      Lord Incarnadine suspects one of his siblings is trying to take over Castle Perilous. He travels to NYC to try and figure out which one it is. Meanwhile, back at the castle the guests are dealing with an invasion from a hostile aspect. Gene, Laura and Snowclaw are in the thick of it. Another fun read in the series.

      спойлерыВторая книга серии, в которой опять же присутствует сумасшедшая особа женского пола =) История о королевской семье сильно напомнила бессмертные Хроники Амбера, все те же сестринско-братские терки и борьба за трон. Они объединяются в тандемы и к близким контактам с [...]

      The cover blurbs continue to describe this series as hilarious. The first two volumes are not. At most they are mildly amusing. If you are looking for something along the lines of Douglas Adams, look somewhere else. The first two volumes are better than average science fantasy and adventure. The novels use Castle Perilous and its portals to different world's as the starting point for the adventures. Castle for Rent brings back the more important survivors of volume one and adds some new characte [...]

      With Lord Incarnadine on Earth trying to fix the portal there, someone makes a deal with some very nasty beings from one of the more aggressive dimensions to take over the Castle and hold it hostage. Gene, Linda, Snowclaw and now a woman named Sheila try to survive while Incarnadine plans to get the Castle back.This is a funny and very readable adventure, with a good mix of colorful fantasy, suspense and action. I enjoyed it more than the first. Upon reflection, however, I have to say it suffers [...]

      Okay, I've read this before, years ago, but Kindle had it for pretty cheap and I did enjoy the series so I decided to give it another read.That said, I really think these are YA books and as I'm no longer in that age group, I'm kind of wondering why I picked it up again. I'll read it through (it's a quick read) but will probably not get the next one in the series.Edit: all done, and it was okay, but I will definitely not be re-reading the rest of the series. Sometimes your tastes change, and I t [...]

      The second book in a madcap, frothy light series.Incarnadine goes to Earth to try to stablize the portal, among other things. Bluefaced creatures invade and make themselves unpleasant, but are only the cat's paws. It involves climbing stairs up and down, going through a portal to a jungle, Sheila arriving while she had been taking a shower, Snowclaw returning from his own world, and more.

      There's a genre of books I call "garbage '80's fantasy". They include the Myth books by Asprin and the Xanth novels and others as well. This is in that category but gets 3 stars instead of 2 because1) It was a quick read.2) The author is from Pittsburgh and most of the characters are from the area and 3) The link between Earth and the mysterious castle is in.Ligoneer

      Loved this book. As I'm re reading the series I thank the gods that my ereader has a built in dictionary. I've forgotton how vast John DeChancie's vocabulary is. It's still a fun great read that doesn't seem to ageeven after 20 years or so.

      Another one in the series. Devoured in a day, mostly on the plane ride home from PDX.

    12. Matt Kelly on said:

      Nice, lightweight humorous fantasy series that I read back in the 90s. Amusing, but not as good as the Discworld series in the same genre.

      Gene, Linda, Snowclaw and Kwip are back and meeting new friends in Castle Perilous, will they be able to prevail in the latest invasion? Better read it to find out.
