review Spirits of Flux and Anchor (Soul Rider, #1) 103 ´ Cassie did not feel the soul rider enter her bodybut suddenly she knew that Anchor was corrupt and that far from being a formless void from which could issue only mutant changelings and evil wizards Flux was the source of Anchor's very existenceThe price of her knew knowledge is eOf her knew knowledge is exile yet Cassie and the Rider of her soul are the only hope for the redemption of both Flux and Anch. A fantasy novel which turns out to also be a science fiction novel eventually The world it's set in consists of many Anchors isolated city states of normalcy surrounded by a sea of Flux in which magic operates and a wizard with a powerful enough will can dominate everyone around them and create their own city states out of nothing Also within Flux are seven locked and sealed Gates to Hell; the denizens of Hell probably another dimension although it's never really clarified want to come through and have agents in the world who are trying to open the gates for themI've only read two Chalker books at this point the other Midnight at the Well of Souls but I can already identify a number of themes that consistently reappear in his work including but not limited to Physical transformations of characters Dimestore sexual psychology Aversion to authority structures Heavy handed rather abrupt moralizing endings Ancient machines still running even though no longer tended set up thousands of years earlier to keep everything in orderMany things are still unexplained at the end of the book; that it's only the first book of a series is clear enough If I'm going to criticize the book for anything besides the preachy ending it's that the storyline feels rushed The main character flies from slave to powerful wizard so uickly it feels a bit off Also it's not very obvious how the villain's plan of action would have actually accomplished his goals although he's still alive and at large at the end of the book so Chalker may have withheld some information there for future volumes But those are only minor complaints Overall I enjoyed the book a lot and would recommend it to fantasy fans looking for something unusual

Spirits of Flux and Anchor (Soul Rider, #1) ¸ Ss void from which could issue only mutant changelings and evil wizards Flux was the source of Anchor's very existenceThe price. Pretty disappointed with this book Chalker is a frustrating auther I read Chalker's original Well of Souls series thirty years ago and I thought it was a good SF adventure I then read The Messiah Choice which put me off Chalker I actually owned most of Chalker's books at one time but I sold them because I was so disappointed by The Messiah Choice I recently repurchased the Soul Rider series on ebay because I was intrigued by the positive reviews on this site Now that I have read this book I think I may give up on Chalker again The idea for the worlds of Flux and Anchor with the wizards and stringers and church is intriguing but Chalker never brings it to life The book is just too underdeveloped The descriptions characterizations and plot are minimal even though the book is over 300 pages I also find the sexual elements in the novel almost juvenile Chalker has certainy done better read ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Jack L.
