Helliconia Spring is more than a theme or metaphor It is also an intensely exuberant book, full of sense of sap returning, packed with memorable images: the disastrous charge of the phagors into the super-cooled lake, Latainla Ay riding through Embruddock on a flaming stungebag, the girl Oyre discovering for the first time that the furs and.   The span of years encompassed by the first book in the Helliconia trilogy is huge, the concept of Helliconia infinite. I've only read the first book, and I can't wait to read Summer. Spring was well written, even visionary, and I read it non-stop for 5/5(5).
