Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Micah Scelsi | 2/8/2014

    " Let me say I have read many books by Weis and Hickman and in general they are great Fantasy. When I first started reading this one I thought it rather objectionable and almost put it down, but then I found she had a point to the strange construct of the initial human population portrayed and it went with the rest of the story. I read the entire series and in general it is pretty good. It is an interesting concept she developed and we do eventually feel for the characters that develop. The GR rating for the series of 3.5 is about right. "

    " The writing isn't great and the ending was such a disappointment. "

    " A great introduction to the world of Seth. The polotics and deception throughout this novel are amazing. Margaret Weis hit yet another homerun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Candice Kamencik | 9/9/2013

    " Good read! Right from the beginning I was pulled in. The created world was solid and well thought out, with enough little differences to be stand alone. Very well developed characters and engaging story from cover to cover. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 D. Hunter Phillips | 6/30/2013

    " I liked the concept of this book, where the dragons are the main characters rather than just big evil antagonists. I feel like the last few chapters of the book were a bit disappointing. I'm not sure why, but it just felt like I didn't get back what I put into it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Riffel Librarian | 10/11/2012

    " Loved the portrayal of the dragons, but could not find myself caring much for the human characters. The king was particularly two-dimensional for my tastes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 8/19/2012

    " A low 3. Not a great book. Seems that in summing it up, not that much actually happens. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nate | 7/30/2012

    " Dull and uninteresting. I mad it half way through and just didn't care. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Block | 4/26/2010

    " MW is a great storyteller! This book flows so smoothly and was hard to put down. It was the first novel I read of hers that was outside the Dragonlance world and, while I wasn't sure what to expect, couldn't wait for the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sasha Strader | 11/21/2009

    " I was pretty impressed by this book, but I was a little frustrated at first because the beginning heavily hints at past events you don't learn anything about until half way through. Despite that, it was a worthwhile read. "

    " The writing wasn't that great. I was expecting better. I thought it jumped around quite abit and didn't let you actually start to like any of the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zhiqian | 12/6/2005

    " The first chapter didn't really catch my interest. Luckily, it quickly picked up after that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 CJ Gosling | 12/7/2003

    " After some urging from my husband, I finally began this series. The plot itself was simple but the world and characters were so rich and complex that I was enthralled until the last page! I read all 381 pgs. in 1 1/2 days: happily neglecting all the important things I should have been doing. "
