Four Lords of the Diamond - 1 ). Jack L. Chalker. The little man in the synthetic tweed jacket didn’t look like a bornb. In fact, he looked much the same as most of the other clerks, junior computer operators, and political men on the make in Military Systems Command. Somewhere, from among the four human-settled worlds of the Warden Diamond, hostile aliens were spying on Earth. But no agent could be sent to investigate and report back; a symbiont invaded all life forms and destroyed any form of machinery. Two beady little brownish eyes set a bit too far apart by a hawk nose, a twitchy little mouth above a lantern jaw-the kind of nebhish nobody ever looked at twice.

This is the first book of the Four Lords of the Diamond series by Jack L. Chalker

This is the first book of the Four Lords of the Diamond series. The others are: Cerberus: A Wolf in the Fold Charon: A Dragon at the Gate Medusa: A Tiger by the Tail.

This is Book One of the Epic Tetralogy, The Four Lords of the Diamond.

Aliens are spying on Earth from one of the four worlds that make up the Warden Diamond. But it is impossible to send agents to any of the four worlds because of unique microscopic symbionts that make it impossible for visitors to leave the Diamond.

Seeking a unique solution, each of the four worlds making up the Diamond is sent a person whose mind has been stripped of everything and who is now controlled by an agent of the Confederacy.

Lilith is the first planet to be visited. Here, Cal Tremon, stripped of his own personality, must overcome incredible odds and survive not only the incredible perils of the foreign planet but his own controllers as well.

Jack L. Chalker's 1981 novel "Lilith: A Snake in the Grass" is the first of his "Four Lords of the Diamond" books. It's a nicely written, fast-paced, easily read book but comes with only a small amount of Chalker's typical "physical transformation" motif. The only fault I have with the book is that he's got some of his technical facts wrong in the description of the planets. Specifically, for Lilith, he says it has "an axial tilt of 84 degrees -- almost a world on its side, which meant little seasonal variation." That's exactly backwards. Plus, with that tilt, every place past 6 degrees from the equator (in either direction) would be beyond that world's polar circle and thus have at least on day per year where the sun doesn't set. The odd day/night cycle isn't reflected in the book. But, still, I rate the book at a Very Good 4 stars out of 5.

The books in Jack L. Chalker's "Four Lords of the Diamond" series are:

1. Lilith: A Snake in the Grass (The Four Lords of the Diamond Book 1)
2. Cerberus: A Wolf in the Fold (The Four Lord of the Diamond Book 2)
3. Charon: A Dragon at the Gate (The Four Lord of the Diamond Book 3)
4. Medusa: A Tiger by the Tail (The Four Lord of the Diamond Book 4)
The lfirst of the four books in the Four Lords of the Diamond Series I recommend the entire series. First read this in hardback many years ago and had to get it for my Kindle. The four books are a little pricey, but well worth it if you like science fiction.
There are four (4) books in the "Lords of the Diamond" series, all of which are not only entertaining, but also have a buried commentary on possible future civilization, penal systems, and the human condition in general. This is the first of the series. As such, while it can be read as a stand-alone, it is much more enjoyable when all four books are read as a series and in order.

Though the series is now 20 years old, and not written in the style of modern science fiction, it is still enjoyable for all age brackets. For those of us who are 'older' fans, the style and content reflect the science fiction we grew up reading. As such, fans of 'cyber punk' and modern themes may not enjoy it, but it is still worthy of reading and as a reflection of how the genre has changed since the original days of "Astounding" and such magazines.
I read this series many years ago, and loved it. A star system of 4 planets, each world unique upon itself. One problem, once you land on any of the planets, you can never leave the star system. So, turn it into a unique penal colony.
1 man's mind inserted into 4 unique bodies, all to search for info on an alien incident that seems to start from the Warden System.

Each book in this series is set upon each of the four worlds in this system. Good concept on how to use mind transfer technology to another level. Great plots, intrigue, plot twists, and trying to determine what is good and what is bad?

Classic novel, that stands the test of time.
I've been trying to track this book/series down for a while as I tend to enjoy Chalkers books.This book has a lot of the underlying theme's that I've seen in his other books, strange biologies, mind transference etc. Although this one has some uniques take on some of those theme's. If you like reading Fantasy books and Sci-fi this book setting and story line sit somewhere between the two. The book is also fairly well contained if you wanted to you could read this book as a standalone novel and ignore the following 3 books. Although for myself I want to read about the other three worlds and find out what the elusive "Aliens" are up to.
I enjoyed this book a lot and would recommend it to anyone who is a Sci-fi fan or has enjoyed Chalkers other books such as the Rings of the Master series or The dancing Gods Series. I hope to see more of Chalkers books available on kindle as most are OOP and hard to find new or 2nd hand.
doesnt Do You
I enjoyed reading this book. The premise was new to me and the author created a believable world. The human interaction was excellent. I look forward to the sequel.
I read this series of books years ago and I really liked the author's distopian future universe. The books are good page-turners and have lots of fun science fiction and fantasy elements. The first book is the best in my opinion due to the introduction of all the concepts. Parts of the series can get a little repetitive, but are still entertaining. I recommend especially the first book and I think if you like it you'll like the others.
I first read this series many years ago and found it haunting. It is one of those series with the premise of ever-changing physicality. I have never forgotten the promise of Chalker's books and am looking forward to reading his novels in Kindle format.
