The Serpent Mage (1986) proves slightly less exciting, since Michael's rough edges have smoothed over as, under Breed tutelage, he has gained nearly godlike powers. The action here centers less on the Realm than on modern-day Los Angeles, where Michael and Kristine Pendeers, a UCLA musicologist, manage to get Waltiri's elusive and otherworldly Infinity Concerto performed.

The Serpent Mage" - book two - picks up shortly after Infinity Concerto leaves off. Michael Perrin is back home, living with his parents and continuing his training. Arno Waltiri has left his estate and the disposition of his papers and recordings to Michael. Michael's desires for normality are shattered, however, when he reads a news story about strange bodies discovered in a nearby hotel - one grossly obese, one strangely mummified and in a party dress. Other news stories speak of "hauntings" around the world - Michael suspects that the Sidhe are coming to Earth.

At age 14, he began submitting pieces to magazines and at 15 he sold his first story to Robert Lowndes' Famous Science Fiction. It would be five years before he sold another piece, but by 23 he was selling stories regularly.

The story details a young man's encounter with the Sidhe, wrapping a very likeable character in a music and poetry imbued environment of fairy other-worldliness. I enjoyed this story once again when found in it's current combined form

I knew that The Infinity Concerto was really only the first half of a longer novel, but the second half would have to. .The End. Serpent Mage (lit), Greg Bear - Songs of Earth 2 - Serpent Mage. Thank you for reading books on GrayCity.

I knew that The Infinity Concerto was really only the first half of a longer novel, but the second half would have to wait, to be written separately and published as a second book. In due time, the second half was proposed and written and published. I dedicated the first part to a beloved teacher, Elizabeth Chater, who had read the first version in 1971 and given me much needed praise and support.

One of my favorite books! I first read this about 15 years ago. The book was given to me and then I fell in love with the stories, and later the author too. Greg Bear is now one of my favorite authors of scifi and folkloric stories. I brought this book with me everywhere for a very long time, until my copy was stolen. :( It took awhile, but I finally was able to purchase a first edition. Seller marked the book as Acceptable condition, but I'd say it's in Really Good, almost new condition. There's no writing or folded pages, very slight dents in the corners (I think from shipment), just a slight few discoloration on the binding (looks like from age), dust jacket is in really good condition too, no rips or stains, and no worn areas. I am very happy with the condition of this book! I suggest, if you like this book, to also read City at the End of Time. That book is now my favorite book of all time (Hehe).

This book is about the Sidhe and how music is magic. If you like Lord of the rings, I think you'll like this book.

Great book! I read it in high school and was drawn in from the very first page. It envelops you in the rich descriptions, and makes you care about the characters. This is a trilogy in one book. Hard to put down. I think each book took me 3 days. I just bought it again recently to give my son his own copy and he loves it.

I've read 'most all of the lauded fantasy fiction that's been written since the Songs, and despite the excellence of the George RR Martins, Steven Ericsons, Steven Brusts, Glen Cooks and Patrick Rothfusses (sp???)this still stands as a unique, powerful fantasy that is undiminished and unshadowed by time or competition. The moods range from bleak to beautiful, while over all is a sense of pervasive strangeness.

As other reviewers have said, that makes Songs different from the standard fantasies, with their central casting heroes, heroines,arcane artifacts and Terrible Awful Things; this one stands yet with the few great ones.

One of my favorite books, I re-read it frequently. Though this copy was mainly just as a sort of "backup" for the paperback that was slowly getting destroyed.

I read this book many years ago and came across the title again by accident. I couldn't find it anywhere - not even the library had it. I was thrilled to locate it via Amazon. While it cost more than I wanted to spend, I don't regret it as its still a great read. I would recommend it to anyone who likes fantasy. I also want to congratulate Amazon on its speedy arrival - a fortnight before its predicted ETA!

This book was a replacement purchase for a very well read book that finally fell apart, it was read so many times! I really love this story and will read it many more times.

I liked the first half so much (The Infinity Concerto) that I asked Amazon for the completion.

I was dreadfully disappointed. I think Greg Bear got lost in his own plot; I never ever do this but I left the second half unfinished because it was so boring and moody.

I thoroughly recommend Infinity Concerto, leave the rest alone. Five for Infinity, none for the follow up.
I love fantasy and sci fi.....I really do. I went to the effort (not mention expense) of ordering this book from the USA (I'm in Australia)...I waited in keen anticipation, the book arrived after the usual month or so of travel time, I eagerly began to read and couldn't get past page 79 (though I did also read the little bit containing personal revelations at the end of the second book). Maybe it's just me...plenty of people seem to have adored this book, which is one of the reasons I bought it, but, in the final analysis I thought it seemed a bit silly, tired, scrambled and confused and much too slow to get to the point (so was Michael... nobody could be that unperturbed by the situation in which he found himself)...did it/he ever get to the point? I really couldn't flog myself any further to find out. I highly recommend you read GRRM's A Song of Ice and Fire instead.
