Sara Douglass is always able to enthrall me with her story-telling, but this one grabbed me and didn't let go. Some parts seemed a little rushed, something I wasn't used to in a Douglass book, but it was still a great read. I've never fallen so completely for a character I've known so briefly.

About book: This was a really interesting fantasy read. Throughout the novel there are a lot of mysteries and shocks. For the vast majority of the plot, the twists were logical. I know a lot of people don't like that, but to me, it's a delightful strength, because it's less predictable and more real than a lot of fantasy writing. in this book, our heroine spends a lot of time forgiving people for pushing her around, and lamenting her own confusion, until events force her to take charge of her own.

Over the hot southern land of Ashdod looms the shadow of Threshold, a massive pyramid which the Magi of Ashdod are building to propel themselves into Infinity, a plane of existence that holds the promise of technological magics and supposedly unimaginable power. For decades, thousands of slaves have lost their lives in the construction of this edifice. The first half was really good and exciting. I really loved the Tirzah - Yaqob - Boaz love triangle.

Threshold (a single volume) is my most recent publication (February 1997) and one I’m terribly excited about. Fantasy, but completely different from The Axis Trilogy. Threshold is middle-eastern rather than medieva. r perhaps medieval middle-eastern. Yes, that’s it. It is not a heroic fantasy in the same sense that the Axis books are, and it doesn’t follow the same fantasy formula that I used there.
Threshold is a 1997 fantasy novel by South Australian author Sara Douglass. The novel forms a prequel to Douglass's 'Darkglass Mountain' trilogy. Set in the Egypt-like kingdom of Ashdod and primarily narrated by the glass-working slave Tirzah, the novel takes place during the final stages of the construction of the titular Threshold, an enormous glass-clad pyramid
This is another fantasy book in which mathematics is seen as a sort of magic, but in this one it is specifically a particularly evil, cold and inhuman form of magic, in contrast to other less formulaic sorts of magic. There are the Magi, who are mathematicians, interested only in communing with "the One" through the Infinity Chamber in the building called Threshold. On the other hand, there are the Elementals who are more interested in things like life, love and beauty. Of course, I worry that this sort of thing will perpetuate the stereotype.
