Love that this sequel was written, because it definitely filled in a lot of the gaps from the trilogy. It tied the whole story together more neatly, and put everything in a much bigger perspective, which was really nice. The plot was unpredictable and surprising, and all in all this has been a great 4-book series that I recommend to anyone who likes fantasy (and sci-fi).
I’m not exactly sure what I feel about this book. It has some interesting elements of fantasy and science fiction. I felt the story was rushed in the end and it was pretty one dimensional. I liked the idea of aliens and earth and the futuristic air car, but this series would have been way better if it was part of 2 trilogies. I felt the 4th book tried to go in that direction but it was crammed into one book. I mean time travel and alternate timelines? Super cool. I liked that, but it had no dept...
a reconection of the story
one star, because it had a dragon in it. but if you liked the trilogy, stay away from this book. it will make your head ache or explode.
Horrid way to kill the trilogy with this book. I suggest stopping after the third book and leaving this one alone...
some character from the previous books appears sadly not with the same definition.Although the original trilogy led many holds, the way those gaps are addressed here is rather lazy and disappointing.Not a bad light read, however, if you were satisfied with the trilogy, better just leave it like that and skip this one.
Wow. So different from the original series, but a great way to end it.
Ancora un libro relativo al ciclo della spada nera. Personalmente, il finale del libro precedente mi aveva lasciata abbastanza delusa, quindi non vedevo (o riesco a vedere tutt'ora dopo averlo letto) l'utilità di un ulteriore capitolo di una saga di per sè abbastanza banale (anche se l'idea iniziale era indubbiamente buona).
Absolutely love Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman's writing, it just flows beautifully, very witty and funny, great story and conclusion to The Dark Sword series, highly recommend...😁
Het beste deel in deze reeks!
Un libro que no necesitaba escribirse, pero que cierra todos aquellos arcos que tal vez para algunos quedaban inconclusos.
This book left me without much opinion whatsoever, except for another less-than-satisfying ending.Full spoiler review:http://ossuslibrary.tripod.com/Bk_Fan...
Great ending to this series. I didn't think a fourth book was needed, but it really was a good read.
in my opinion this added nothing to the original trilogy
Tidies up the series
I read this trilogy in High school at a time when I had little interest in fantasy ( read either classic literature or horror) I found the trilogy absoloutly enrapturing but was sadly forced to give it back to the friend that loaned it to me. Years later when I started reading heavily again I started searching for this trilogy again but it was sadly out of print and unobtainable. Recently I was able to find a complete set at a used book store along with a sequel book I never knew about. I have n...
I remember being crazy about the original series, but have to admit that it was quite awhile ago when I read it and therefore, did not remember everything. I was impressed by the way that they had reminders sprinkled throughout the story so you could get a memory jog. I will say that I did like this book but really didn't love it to death. I think if I had read it when it was new and my memory was fresh that I would have gotten more out of it.
I do not mind mixing magic with scifi, but even for me this theme went little bit over board. In addition to magic world meeting high tech through space travel author introduces in this book time travel and hopping between parallel universes. Although I liked this book it felt little bit too cheesy and kept you looking for what else can be added to mix to make it even more ridiculous.
Sadly this book is just riding on the coat-tails of the excellent Darksword trilogy. When I pick up a swords & sorcery title, that's what I expect to get... not some boring, earthly, political scenario, with a splash of modern, military manoeuvring thrown in. This book is a mish-mash of genres, which frankly doesn't work and by the time I had reached chapter five, I'd had enough.
Ce dernier volume de "La légende de l'épée noire" (en tout cas le dernier que j'ai lu et dont j'ai connaissance) est particulier : l'histoire se passe en grande partie sur notre Terre. La magie a disparu, sauf dans l'Autre Monde où Joram s'est exilé. Ce roman n'est pas le meilleur de la série, mais c'est une épilogue globalement réussi à un cycle plutôt sympathique dans l'ensemble.
Muy flojo en comparación con la trilogía.
Bah. Not remotely worth it.
Non mi è piaciuto particolarmente..La trama sembra forzata come a voler dare a tutti i costi un seguito ad una saga che si era conclusa benissimo con il terzo libro.
No tengo idea de porque la leí. Me gusto la evolución de algunos personajes, pero como siempre el final fue espantoso.. deus ex machina.. en casi todo lo que leo de ellos..
Easy and enjoyable. You begin, you finish, then you're like, where did the time go?
Not quite as engrossing as the original trilogy, but a nice relapse back into a great overall story.
More Margaret Weis that I could not get enough of as a teenager. The Darksword trilogy was great filler in between the many Dragonlance novels. These are the perfect young adult fantasy reads.
