This isn't an actual review of the book (since I only read the first six chapters), just a short explanation of why I didn't finish it. This is one I was reading out loud to my wife, but neither of us were getting into it. (As Barb put it, "It's not getting any worse, but it's not getting any better, either.")Normally, we both like the fantasy genre, so we were game to experiment with two new-to-us authors, having found the trilogy at a yard sale. But to me, the world-building here wasn't very p [...]

I keep acquiring these Weis books out of some misplaced nostalgia or unknowable impulse. Perhaps because I liked the Dragonlance characters, but never read her books. I never finish them. I've tried at least four. I asked a friend why this might be. She said, "Well, didn't they suck? Quit buying everything with a sword and a logo."

I got this trilogy from a rental store. I wasn't expecting much of it given it's poor condition at the time but I decided to try it as I noted that it was written by the ones who wrote the Dragonlance Chronicles trilogy.Boy was I surprised. It turned out to be another original work coming from those two and it was an atypical fantasy story. The protagonist and the supporting characters are very well fleshed out and very interesting - the bitter and unloved Joram, the amusing but enigmatic Simkin [...]

God, I KNOW Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman suck. Man, my middle school obsession was Dragonlance, for goodness' sake! But it was just sitting there in my office while I was babysitting the copy machine, so I picked it up. And, just as I remember, every character is undeveloped, every event forced, the only thing they've got going on is some half-decent worldbuilding and the sorta pathetic twist that the "evil Sorcerors" (secretly the good guys, right?) are actually NON-magic users in a world of [...]

Nope, don't remember this one at all. Clearly recommended to me in 1995 by my boyfriend, Joeyhee hee he's my husband nowis is not the type of book I typically chose then or now. I have a list that says I finished it on 7/14/1995, so I'll go ahead and believe that. But, since it's a trilogy and I never read anymore books in the trilogyt sure how much I enjoyed it. Good to see I was branching out back then, though!entered into : 6/7/2015PS Just asked my former boyfriend if he remembers the book, a [...]

Of all the Weis & Hickman books, this trilogy was my favourite. Looking back, it was the most original and interesting (in terms of characters, world building and premise). Far outshining the much beloved (and far more well known), formulaic "Dragonlance" books that preceeded it. Freed from the shackles of having to write a fantasy trilogy as a companion piece to the D&D module packs, they were able to explore their imagination more fully and structure the plot more appropriately.Okay, i [...]

This book called to me as a teenager. Sadly, a teenager with very little money for books, and my friend's library, which I continually raided, didn't include this one. It was me, afterall, who had the slight Dragonlance fetish. It seems too easy to get hold of these things these days and so perhaps slightly obscure books with butch men forging swords on the cover have lost their otherworldly charm and mystique a little, and yet I still felt a l little boyish excitement picking this up, despite t [...]

I enjoyed this book and read it only because it was given to me as a gift. The beginning was great though I will say the end kinda slowed down. I will read the next two books. Glad for once a series does not go on and on and on. I am interested to see how the "prince" was saved from being killed.

The trilogy that got me into reading as a teenager. My rating probably reflects this. It's a great one for teenagers just getting into fantasy books etc

I generally love pulp fantasy (see definition in other reviews). Unfortunately, this dark, foreboding entry into the Dark Sword Series by the generally bankable duo Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman really disappointed. A solid start and premise meandered into a slow plot caught in a snail pace with unlikeable characters that couldn't break the constraints of their archetypes. For pulp fantasy it committed the cardinal sin of being boring and burdensome.Definitely not pure escapism

I am happy to say I was pleasantly surprised this book didn't suck as much as I was worried it would. (That opening says a lot about where I am with Weis and Hickman at this point.) That said, Weis and Hickman generally do a solid job when it comes to the first novel in a series. "Dragon Wing" was a really great start to the "Death Gate Cycle," and "Will of the Wanderer" was equally solid for "Rose of the Prophet." It's usually the last book in a series -- the "Seventh Gates" and the "Prophets o [...]

I wasn't going to write a review on this book since I had a negative experience with it, but after a look at the other negative reviews I felt the need to give an educated opinion on Forging the Darksword. The sequence of events in the beginning of the novel is a bit hard to get into, but I enjoyed the events being presented, so I continued reading. Though I usually don't like books that start when an ending and then go back in time, I continued with this one because it wasn't really the ending, [...]

A very different fantasy novel set in a world where magic is the norm and the non-magical is considered an abomination. This is the reason fantasy exists. To examine issues that occur in modern times, but without all the baggage and politics that comes with those issues in reality. This is usually more effective than writing about an issue straight forwardly and allows readers and writers to explore the theme in safety.From what I've read, this was inspired by groups which targeted Dungeons and [...]

Very good. These two writer are a great pair. This one reminds me of their other books, which just made me content. Theme was dark and damp. Deliberate tempo, filling it with explanations and character building which I enjoyed, with pace raising at the end. They created an interesting and believable form of magic, called "Life" and showed how this reality developed routines, predigests (against those who were Dead") even changed architecture by never cutting wood, stone but growing it instead.

Este libro era justo lo que necesitaba: algo entretenido y ligero, fácil de leer. La historia parte de una idea de universo curiosa -un mundo donde lo raro es quien nace sin poderes mágicos- tiene toques cómicos y por supuesto acción y aventuras. Lo malo: Es difícil encontrar las continuaciones en español.

The Darksword Trilogy pull you into a world in need of a hero. Things aren't what they should be, but as it gets darker and darker under the pressure of the evil forces at hand, is there a light on the horizon?I loved these books, and sadly, finished them within a week. They just pulled me in and made me a strange hermit recluse that only surfaced for meals. Enjoy!

Probably the best in the series. I love the tarot references and the character of Simkin. Great high fantasy.

An interesting start that petered out to a boring conclusion.

I LOVED this series when I read it 10+ years ago. I remember a great story, quick pace, and how much I enjoyed the humor, wit, and transformations of Simpkin.

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.

After reading the fantastic Death Gate cycle, I was looking forward to read another great series from Weis & Hickman, so I picked up the Darksword trilogy. Unfortunately, the book didn't live up to my expectations.First of all, the book started slow. This isn't always so bad, series like this usually need time to develop the world and the characters. The problem is that this slowness continued. Pages went on and on and on without anything really happening. Even when the main character finall [...]

I waffled, and continue to waffle, about the star rating on this one. I enjoyed reading it and it has many strong points. The world concept is cool as well as bizarre, and is presented well, little by little, in a nice organic way. The characters are strongly established, developed, written and are likable.The main issue is just that it's like 95% setup. While Saryon's backstory is necessary to the main plot, it takes quiiite a while to get to where you realize that and why you've had to read al [...]

I really liked the premise/setting, and the overall arc was quite decent, but felt a bit bogged down getting through the detail. I also have no idea what the hell that chapter with the faeries was about. I assume it comes back in the sequel but it really doesn't work in the context of this one book.I generally liked the characters. Simkin was entertaining, Vanya was great, Blackloch was surprisingly subtle for a moustache twirling villain. Saryon and Joram were just ok, but I give the book point [...]

It's not a bad story. I just got bored along the way and realized I no longer cared what happened next. As someone else commented, it wasn't getting worse, it just wasn't getting better either.
