Book Review: The Birthgrave

The Birthgrave by Tanith Lee
This reprint of Lee’s 1975 alleged classic has an eye-catching cover but apart from that has nothing to recommend it. A woman who may be the last of a long gone race wakes up in a volcano and stumbles around a devastated world. Some like to see overweening greatness brought low as she tries to uncover her past from the realm of historical oblivion. This has not the remotest spark of interest or believability as she encounters obscure and squalid circumstances. I was not infatuated with the tale of the woman and the demented accidents of chance that happen to her.
