For 700 years the Meks served without complaint; they were indispensable, for no gentleman would demean himself with toil. But now they turn against the strongholds of civilization—Castle Halcyon, then Sea Island, Morninglight, and Maraval—one by one the proud castles of Earth fall; last standing is Castle Hagedorn.
Winner Nebula Award 1966, Hugo award 1967.

Detailed prose, somewhat slow to catch onto at first, but book becomes pretty engaging. Although, I did not feel completely immersed, due to the length of the reading.

If you enjoy Jack Vance's books, this is a must-read. The world he created in The Last Castle is amazing.
