Présentation de l'éditeur

A mysterious woman awakens in the heart of a dormant volcano. She comes forth into a brutal ancient world transformed by genocidal pestilence, fierce beauty, and cultural devastation. She has no memory of herself, and she could be anyone—mortal woman, demoness lover, last living heir to a long-gone race, or a goddess of destruction. Compelled by the terrifying Karrakaz to search for the mysterious Jade that is the answer to her secret self, she embarks on a journey of timeless wonder.

Rediscover this realm of brilliant cruel beauty and seductive immortal ruins, of savage war and grand conquest, of falling stars and silver gods.

This 40th anniversary edition of legendary fantastist Tanith Lee's debut novel includes its original introduction by Marion Zimmer Bradley. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Poche .

One of those that makes me want to jump in it and not return 2 octobre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
In this tale of blood, love, violence, beauty, magic, dreams, brutal murder, swords'n'sorcery, rape, battle and deadly races, we follow a woman on a journey of self-discovery. First a Goddess, then a slave, later a pawn in the game of an emperor who shows her her true nature and leads her to understand what she is looking for. And then the end of this story.. a twist of the plot and atmosphere so totally unexpected I couldn't believe it at first. Terrific.

Long and challenging F/SF tale 27 mai 2010
Par Mitchell Glodek - Publié sur Amazon.com
Tanith Lee's first adult novel, the Birthgrave, is quite well-written, but feels very long, like a trilogy of shorter novels. In a lot of ways it reminded me of some of Gene Wolfe's novels; it is the tale of a first person narrator of dubious morality and identity who has great power but doesn't really know what is going on, and its tone is mysterious, ambiguous, and sad. A lot of typical fantasy adventure stuff goes on, like bandits attacking merchant caravans, a chariot race, walled cities and castles besieged, priests, lords, wizards and barbarians waging war and engaging in court intrigues, but Lee's protagonist is a woman, and Lee addresses a lot of topics related to women's relationships with men, with each other, and women's larger role in society. These political and social observations are woven seamlessly in the narrative, and Lee is never dogmatic and her characters are never single-faceted archetypes, so you don't feel like you are reading a feminist screed or a grad student lecture, but rather a nuanced piece of literature. There are strong sexual themes in the Birthgrave, and they are all odd and/or disturbing, ranging from unrequited desire and a mother's hostility to her own unborn child to bestiality and incest.

The Birthgrave is a successful and intriguing fantasy/SF novel, but it is no fable of good vs evil or picaresque romp; readers are more likely to describe it as challenging than fun.

I read the 1975 DAW paperback, UE1776, with a cover by Ken Kelly (narrator as archer on a chariot) and an interior illustration by George Barr (topless man and woman entwined with a huge snake.) This edition has the two page intro by Marion Zimmer Bradley that I am told earlier editions advertised but lacked. Bradley informs us that she read the Birthgrave's 185,000 words in less than five hours; feel free to post your own speed records here at Amazon.

My Favourite Tanith Lee Book 27 août 2001
Par "kayjlo" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
When I first read this book (more years ago than I care to recall) it ignited my interest in so-called sword and sorcery epics. Tanith Lee's lost child-woman draws you into her story from the opening chapter and I would definitely rate this as a read-at-one-sitting book because it is absolutely impossible to put down. It is one of the most broad ranging and breath-taking adventures as the heroine-of-many-names struggles to find her lost race, her identity and her destiny. From healer to warrior to enslaved goddess and reluctant birthgiver, she enchants, saddens and delights. She and her world are beautifully detailed, as are its occupants. The only thing that makes up for reading the last page is the knowledge that the two sequels ("Shadowfire:Vazkor, Son of Vazkor" and "Quest for the White Witch") are just as brilliant and provide a most satisfying, if unexpected, conclusion. Get this if you can - then hunt for the sequels. You will not regret it!

The Dissociated Goddess 18 septembre 2004
Par Frai Jonah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Even more than a breathtaking adventure through a world of violence and magic, The Birthgrave is a psychological exploration of the inner life of a born outsider, an unattached person. The author's direct style and use of the first person places the reader close to the core of the heroine on a violent and troubled quest to find herself. The negative self-image and wandering, restless disposition, powerlessness against subconscious convictions of a person with attachment disorder are beautifully rendered. The description is hands-on, direct, without undue psychologizing. The book has unusual psychological depth in the genre, maybe to be compared with Donaldson's Lord Foul's Bane, although the issues described are very different.

This book is beautiful 7 mars 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
This was the first book I read of Tanith Lee and she has since become my favorite author. This is a story of a grown woman who wakes inside a volcano. She finds she is the last of a unknown race and this is her story of her search to find herself. Traveling through lands full of vast ancient cities and strange religions you will find yourself engulfed with the beauty and loneliness of her quest.
