The ending a major plot twist that ties up the novel, another door is opened wide, the story not done. The Asutra is the closing volume of the Durdane Chronicles , and is the most different of the three books given the resolution the events which closed out The Brave Free Men require. Etwane finding himself in ever stranger situations, places, and planets, the joy of adventure is upon him, but may take his life in the process as he gets to the bottom of the grand mystery.

A deft conclusion, it wraps up everything nicely, that is, save one important matter—which makes Durdane bittersweet.

The Asutra, Durdane, 3 by Jack Vance | | Booktopia

One of the most striking elements of Durdane is its steampunkery. The sub-genre unrecognized at the time Vance was writing, its elements are nevertheless evident. Thus what sets Durdane apart as an exemplary steampunk text are the dirigibles. Vance known for his odd transportation devices, the balloon-ways of Durdane are among his most unique. Essentially hot air balloons linked via wheeled tracks, the floating devices transport passengers to major urban areas of Durdane along a grid much like a rail and ticket system. In the end, the Durdane Chronicles is more quality work from Vance that, in many ways, may be an unintended magnum opus.

Containing elements of his coming of age books e. His peculiar style, the economic plotting, and artful building of suspense are all present.
