Lee's Review: 

This is one of my favorite series. It also has one of my favorite characters in it – Raistland. Raistland is a mage always seeking to increase his power and is arrogant, sarcastic, and mysterious. He is also physically weak – the casting of his spells takes a lot out of him and he relies on his twin brother Caramon for help. Caramon is a mighty warrior with a big heart and is devoted to his brother even though Raistland is always making comments belittling him. There many great characters in this series, another is Tasselhoff a kender (a race that doesn’t experience fear) who’s always getting into trouble and providing comic relief. There is a lot of action and humor in this series. It has an intricate plot and the authors of these books have a great writing style that quickly immerses you into their world. This is one of those series that eats up your free time because you can’t wait to see what will happen next. My listing of books in this series contains only books that are from the original authors who created this series – there are many other books that serve to fill in storylines as the saga progresses, but I’m only recommending the ones from Weis and Hickman.    

Veronica's Review: 

This was a series that made me like Fantasy.  The story and the characters were so well written that I couldn’t get enough.  This was my first book to contain so much magic.  I liked the way magic was portrayed in this book.  Anyone had the potential to learn magic.  I liked the timeless idea of chivalry demonstrated by some of the characters.  My favorite character of all Fantasy books I’ve read is Tasselhoff, who provided plenty of comic relief throughout the series.  The concept and the characters made this a wonderful series.
