I say I don't read fantasy, but fantasy titles do keep popping up here occasionally. I have to admit that I’m of the latter camp, and while I strongly suspect that there was a time when I could have greatly enjoyed Dragon Wing, that time has passed me by. Book one in a 7 book series. This page works best with JavaScript. finally as all subjugated peoples do, a small faction started to rebel, and foment unrest amongst the gegs, the factree where they worked to provide water for the gods and the machine which kept them enslaved started to cause questions to be asked, then they found a human (god) who turned out not to be a god and excepted this himself and the revolution started for real!! One or two of the characters left me cold, but that didn't really alter my reading experience. Strange, since I still consider it my favorite genre. Need another excuse to treat yourself to a new book this week? The world-building is decent. It is the perfect example of what real fantasy is, as it should be, rather then this odd fad with writing bad fantasy. 0 out of 5. One of the most dull and boring books I've read in decades. In my Mytholoy class we studied fantasy and there are six rules that Tolkein set for the genera and if those rules arent fallowed then it is not fantasy. A good book, but with some noticeable flaws. He reads the stuff, and sometimes he gets on me to read certain titles too. And, of course, since Weis and Hickman wrote the original Dragonlance novels, we got our fist dive into the Death Gate Cycle... and our last for several years, since the next books were not available where we lived. As such, the highest realm is too cold to sustain life without sever magic intervention. Read honest and unbiased product reviews from our users. new hero archytypes must be explained, then it is a bad fantasy. And, of course, since Weis and Hickman wrote the original Dragonlance novels, we got our fist dive into the Death Gate Cycle... and our last for several years, since the next books were not available where we lived.

This is the first book of the Death Gate Cycle that I never got around to reading in the 1990s. A huge wow for this book, I do think this is my very favourite book so far in the dragonlance series and it is the first book from the death gate cycle.

Their war led to the Sundering of the world. Reviewed in the United States on February 23, 2015. It’s been roughly fifteen years since then, and of course, the reading experience changed. If you are needing a good story, the kind you will read over and over, this is it! Just as I remembered. These days, I’m a little too jaded and I’ve read a few too many works in a very similar vein. And I must say that, once again, I was transported to a land of magic and adventure that I would love to explore in a years-long role-playing campaign. Over time, magicians learned to work spells only in their own realms and forgot the others. loved it because it spoke about a tiered world, with the gegs (dwarves) being the ones on the bottom rung, totally exploited by other beings who proclaimed themselves to be gods and afraid of the elves!! Over time, magicians learned to work spells only in their own realms and forgot the others. hands down, my all-time favorite series. I think that actually helps the plot in this case, where too much skulduggery could seriously bog things down.

this isn't just some wierd fantasy series for dorks, like trekkies or something. There are secrets and conspiracies though, and enough adventure to keep the pages turning. Some books drag, some are better, but the last 2 books are my favorite. So far I have the same problem with this whole book series each book is over priced for what you get. After viewing product detail pages, look here to find an easy way to navigate back to pages you are interested in. From start to end, I enjoyed it and wanted to read more about it. In my Mytholoy class we studied fantasy and there are six rules that Tolkein set for the genera and if those rules arent fallowed then it is not fantasy. I've never read the Death Gate Cycle before, and I must say that this book left me intrigued. The Death Gate Cycle is set in the far future, a post-apocalyptic world that looks a lot like traditional fantasy worlds—full of humans, elves, and dwarves. This story didn’t blow me away, but I wasn’t expecting it to. The first book is amazingly spry in that they don't bog it down with endless details and make it carry the entire world-building burden. I found it rather lame compared to this. Bane I hate, he is such a double dealing self interested being, enthralling everyone with his beauty and guiless face and young age, he will need to be watched and his powers curtailed!! by Margaret Weis. So long that I’d forgotten most of what happened on the first book and only remember some of the books that follow. October 1990 As political factions from each realm crash into each other as a consequence of their individual searches for power and better lives, the world’s long-held status quos are unheaved.

I did, initially, have a struggle wrapping my mind around the world of Arianus and the different realms. Sure this novel was written in the 1980s but it is a classic that rivals anything written today.

Now that my brother has finally gotten hold. Imagine something like the grand mythos of Tolkien adapted for the stage by an exuberant community theatre company. Disabling it will result in some disabled or missing features.

I did enjoy the surprises and twists, although the intrigue (political and otherwise) being presented here is not nearly on the same level as what can be found in other series'. Each realm is known but at the same time remains a mystery to the other realm's residents.

Dragon Wing is book 1 of 7 in The Death Gate Cycle. I'm not too sure how to approach a review of this book. Zifnab makes references to airlines, Gandalf the Grey, and other things that let the reader know there is more to the story than what has presented so far. Write a review. Set in a world that is bizarre and novel in construction, but self consistent, different races live segregated lives. The characters are nice, the plot is quite good, but the ambitious worldbuliding is probably its greatest achievement. I first read these as a teenager and I was completely and utterly hooked. Reviewed in the United States on February 29, 2020, This is probably the 4th time I've read this series of seven books. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. The maps and diagrams in the front of the book certainly helped.

Fans of swords and sorcery in any form will find something to love in this wide-ranging series. The middle realm which is the most resource-rich lacks access to water, and the lower realm is tr.
