Intriguing, imaginative concept & well written. There is a whole series of Well of Souls novels.
An excellent series of novels. Chalker also wrote a tetralogy (The Four Lords of the Diamond) about a future civilization using an alien civilization relics in a star system as a supermax prison. The first book is http://www.amazon.com/Lilith-Snake-G.../dp/B0057U12SM
