''is set in an alternate world where Mmagic works through the discovery and application of pragmatic laws. The cast (one of whom enters the debate in the Phoenix Tavern) is again populous and colourfully conceived, and includes afreets, various familiars and demons (one of whom is an alternate version of Adolf Hitler); the male protagonist is a werewolf and his female counterpart a virgin witch. Again the war is between Law and Chaos; here, as in A Midsummer Tempest, the ending is not grim'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
