The King of Dreams

The King of Dreams - Robert Silverberg A great ending to the Majipoor cycle. So good, it makes me sad to see it end. I read the previous two in the Prestimion series almost a year ago and kept putting this one off to read other things. I had found "Lord Prestimion" less satisfying than "Sorcerers of Majipoor" much as "Majipoor Chronicles" was not as good as "Lord Valentine's Castle." Unlike "Valentine Pontifex," however, "King Of Dreams" was as good as "Sorcerers" and a great read. Truly a delight. Silverberg is purely amazing. No one writes and worldbuilds like this.
