The Sword of the Lictor (The Book of the New Sun, #3)

The Sword of the Lictor (The Book of the New Sun, #3) - Gene Wolfe Continuing on with the "Book of the New Sun" quartet with this, the third part, we once again are following Severian on his adventures, getting ever closer to the time from which he is relating his story. Familiar characters from the previous two volumes come in and out of the story and the style of the narrative continues, dream like, in much the same vein.

It doesn't make much sense to review this part on it's own because it doesn't stand alone and needs to be read as part of the full quartet. I'm continuing to enjoy the experience, not really quite understanding fully what's going on but not being too confused either.

I look forward to reading the next and final part of this series.
