This is book 5 of the Death Gate Cycle and won't make any sense unless you have read the previous 4. This book has many failings in terms of plot and repetitiveness, but it does continue the action packed adventures of Haplo, Jarre, Dog, Bane and the Serpents on Arianus, the realm of Air. ( )

Haplo's still in his lord's bad books, but needed to escort young Bane back to the world of stone where we began. Bane however has been trying to manipulate events so that he gets to keep Haplo's dog - and lthough we gain a few further clues about this odd creature, there's still a lot more that isn't clear. Meanwhile of course the serpents of evil have been busy. They're stoking fear in Lord Xar, and on Stone they're trying very hard to ensure that all three races of mensch go back to war. Haplo realises that Xar doesn't believe him regarding the mendacity of the serpents so he's unsure of his best course of action.

We actually get very little of Haplo in this book, because he spends most of his time in an Elven prison cell, not wanting to take a course of action that would further the serpents, or lead to any causes for War. The rebel elves are about to unite with the humans and make peace with the dwarfs. The serpents are less enamoured of this outcome.

Bane is not forgotten and one of Alfred's mysteries is explained as Hugh the Hand continues to his last contract.

Hugh the Hand is back and makes sure Bane is killed. Haplo realizes the serpentsnakes are simply our own evilness phantasmagorized[?]. Deals with the elves and their magic system a bit more. Very interesting. ( )

Lies make the sweetest poison.

When Haplo began his journey his course was clear, victory all but a formality. Now he hurries back to warn his people of the evil he has discovered, only to find the enemy waiting for him. They serve Lord Xar now, as they once served Haplo. Confident in his power, Xar dismisses Haplo’s concerns, and sends him back to Arianus with Bane.

The story quickly grows into a vast game of lies, with dragon-snakes surreptitiously offering their support to each player. Regrettably, the story chooses to follow each character simultaneously, revealing treacherous plans as they are hatched, instead of springing them on the audience in the midst of a conflict.

The primary conflict is frustratingly slow, though the story compensates admirably with subplots, using vivid details and complex relationships to build strong emotional tension, which is both satisfying and engaging, though very short lived. Each character struggles with their own role in the story, before ultimately claiming their choice in time to join the final conflict. The ending is satisfying, if incomplete, with minor setbacks designed to pull audiences on to the next volume.

Chaosschepper, het 5de deel van de poort des doods saga. Dit deel is niet te vergelijken met de vorige delen. In dit deel krijgt het wantrouwen van Haplo de bovenhand. Er gebeurt weinig maar we komen wat meer te weten over Xar en de serpenten. Dit boek moet zeker niet onderdoen voor de vorige boeken. Het leest vlot en gemakkelijk. ( )
