The Lion of Far Side by John Dalmas


A suspiciously long lived woman disappears from her new husband’s bed. This is a saga of his quest as he crosses an inter-dimensional rift to secure her return.

The story was thought provoking. There are presently theoretical physics that suggest that multiple earths may exist so the plot isn’t as far fetched as it might have been a few years ago. I enjoyed the characterizations. The book transitioned back and forth from the two main characters and how they changed throughout their experiences. Their personal growth based on adversity was very satisfying. Macurdy’s transition from farmer to warrior was very dramatic. The setting being a somewhat distorted reflection of Earth was thusly somewhat believable. I find Dalmas’s work very entertaining. I thought this was quite a bit different than the Regiment series but vaguely familiar as well.

I recommend this book and the Regiment series as well. I will be tracking down the two ensuing books that make up this trilogy.

Body of work of John Dalmas
