Reviewed by Steven H Silver It has been several years since the last time Ben Bova chronicled the exploits of his eternal warrior, Orion. The action takes in most of the high points of the traditional Arthur story, yet focuses more on Orion and his view of what is happening. In previous novels, Bova has depicted Orion as the unwilling tool of the nearly godlike Aten, fighting against his creator in an attempt to bring his own morality to the situations for which Aten seeks his own resolution. Through the course of the novel, Orion learns more about his creator, Anya, and a couple of other gods who make appearances, as his own grasp on his abilities grows beyond those originally given to him by Aten. Bova never offers a rationale for this discrepancy, however as Orion is undergoing a change and expansion of his abilities throughout the course of the novel, it may be a side effect. Had Bova merely written his story about Arthur and his knights, there would have been little to distinguish it from so many other re-tellings of the matter of Britain. Bova creates an intriguing chessboard on which humans are the pieces, and while there appears to be an overall predetermined destiny for mankind, Bova introduces the possibility that through human agency, or at least through the agency of some individuals, that predestiny can be subverted.
