This was a little bit of a drawback as regards the story's antagonists, who start out being pretty resourceful but turn out being little more than caricatures. I plan on reading the other short novels that make up the full trilogy, as I enjoyed the politics and intrigue of this story and am curious to see where else Brunner takes the story universe. However, 'Avengers of Carrig' could easily stand on its own as a solid one-off adventure.
It should also be said that Brunner is a very good writer with a particularly strong grasp on believable dialogue and respectable 'hard sci-fi' details. It's probably also the 1st one that was generic enuf for it not to even seem like it 'had' to be written by Brunner.

Hanging by some kind of harness under the parradile's body! May 25, Bogdan rated it it was amazing Shelves: brits. Again this was one of the best sci-fi novels that I ever read. I never stop wondering how much wit and inventiveness writers put into sort of novels. I liked especially the mixture of middle ages civilizations, similar like Earth several hundred years ago, with space exploring civilizations.
This was a new type of idea that I did not encountered very often in sci-fi novels. My copy of this book is in Romanian.

Once the city of Carrig stood supreme on this planet that had been settled by space refugees in the distant, forgotten past. From every corner of this primitive lost world caravans came to trade - and to view the great King-Hunt, the gruesome test by which the people of Carrig chose their rulers.
Then from space came new arrivals. And with them came their invincible death guns and their ruthless, all-powerful tyranny. Now there was no King-Hunt in Carrig, or hope for the planet - unless a fool-hardy high-born named S a ikmar, and a beautiful Earthling space-spy named Maddalena, could do the impossible.
