Description

God, I KNOW Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman suck.

God, I KNOW Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman suck. No character could be described as the good guy at the start, and that description would fit everyone even less well by the end. (view spoiler)[As in "Rose of the Prophet," Weis and Hickman are decades ahead of their time in hinting Mosiah is in love with Joram.

Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman. Forging the darksword I wrote three books, which were immensely well received by the populace of Earth, less well received among my own kind. Forging the darksword. Saryon, now somewhere in his sixties or seventies, as reckoned by Earth time, lived very quietly in a small flat in Oxford, England. He was uncertain of the year of his birth in Thimhallan, and thus I, who write this story out for him, cannot provide his exact age. Saryon never did adapt well to the concept of Earth time relative to Thimhallan time. I wrote three books, which were immensely well received by the populace of Earth, less well received among my own kind.

From the bestselling authors of The Rose of the Prophet and The Death Gate Cycle, the first in a majestic saga of magic, fantasy, and adventure In the enchanted realm of Merilon, magic is life. Born without magical abilities and denied his birthright, Joram is left for dead. Yet he grows to manhood in a remote country village, hiding his lack of powers only through constant vigilance and ever more skillful sleight-of-hand. Forced to kill a man in self-defense, Joram can keep his secret from the townspeople no longer: he has no magic, no life

Margaret Weis, Tracy Hickman. This was the first Weis-Hickman series after Dragonlance, their first book in a new world with new systems. From the bestselling authors of The Rose of the Prophet and The Death Gate Cycle, the first in a majestic saga of magic, fantasy, and adventure In the enchanted realm of Merilon, magic is life. I really enjoyed this new series, I thought it was a fresh world and had a fresh feel, with a whole new set of interesting characters.

Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman In the enchanted realm of Merilon, magic is life. Weis and Hickman have created a VERY rich and complex world that I personally feel would be above most adults nevermind children. I am not saying they couldn't get anything out of the story, but this is not your average children's tale, let me tell you.

Tracy Hickman (Author). Book 1 of 4 in the Dardsword Trilogy Series. To use any sort of technology is to be using "the dark arts". Speaking of magic, this book also has a very unique magic system, in which pretty much everyone in society can use magic, but only certain individuals have the ability to recharge your ability to use it.

Okay, this review isn't entirely for the book itself. If it were I would easily give it more stars because the Darksword trilogy, just like the Dragonlance series, was a huge part of my childhood and still reads well today. No, this review must unfortunately reflect the Kindle edition of this book which is, sad to say, absolutely atrocious.

There are just way, way too many typos...and most of them make absolutely no sense. The adaptation to ebook is truly horrible. Is a little proofreading too much to ask? I mean, at least learn to properly use spell check or something. These need to be edited and reissued immediately, because to ask readers to pay $7.99 for an inferior, defective product is just insulting.

I highly recommend picking up the Darksword series in print (preferably an older printing through a used bookstore because I have zero confidence in any new editions based on this execrable ebook). It's a very good story if you can get a better version.

I had this book in my collection years ago but never read it and now wish I would have read it then. The storyline behind this book is amazing and clever; something that will keep you enthralled to the very end. Hickman and Weis are outstanding story writers. If you love the fantasy genre this book is a must read!

I very much love this trilogy!!! it was a rare "cannot put down", back in the paperback days. I read alot of fantasy, and this is one of the more engrossing stories, with an un-sympathetic main character who I happened to relate very closely to. I am *very* happy to re-acquire this in Kindle now...

This started well. An intriguing world. But sadly neither of the main characters were likeable so who cares what they do or why?

Behind this book there is a really intriguing idea: to have magic is to have life and to not have magic is to be dead, and to do things without magic, instead using tools, technology, is the most serious crime one can commit. To use any sort of technology is to be using "the dark arts". Speaking of magic, this book also has a very unique magic system, in which pretty much everyone in society can use magic, but only certain individuals have the ability to recharge your ability to use it. So basically when your tank runs dry you have to rely on someone known as a catalyst to recharge your magical energies. They also regulate the amount of energy they allow a person to have based on the person's class - their status in society. Now, through into the mix that religion, the church, pretty much dominates society, and you have the ingredients of a really interesting story. This story has the potential for some really thought provoking stuff - and that's why I read, to be entertained and be forced to think about things.

The problem of this story is the protagonist.

On the one hand, we have a man named Saryon, who is part of the church. His quest for knowledge leads him to a forbidden section of the library that contains all the texts on "technology" (why isn't that area under lock and key??). He's discovered and reprimanded, and he thinks that's the end of it. I would say more but I don't want to ruin any surprises further on. He's a really good character though. He's not the problem. The problem is a character named Joram, who was born without any magical talents. Understand that in this society, children like Joram are considered "without life" or "dead". If you are born "dead" you are suppose to be killed. Joram avoided that tragic end, and while growing up he got pretty good at sleight of hand, and has been able to fool everyone. Unfortunately way too much time was focused on his upbringing, which I found completely absurd. His mother is completely crazy and abusive, and Joram himself keeps to himself and has a dark, brooding quality to him.

I feel like this could have been a brilliant book if the authors had chosen to leave Joram out of it. Perhaps he could have been a minor character. Anyway, the book, because of the protagonists and perhaps the editing as well, falls apart 1/3 of the way in, and by half way through I was ready to stop.

Kudos on the authors for Dragonlance, parts of The Deathgate Cycle, and their newest nordic inspired book series, but Darksword is not one of their best.

I read this book a long time ago and while rereading it I was taken back to the first time. Great series.

Great read
Wysiwyg. Rather dark story of a young man growing up in a culture that doesn't like him. Pseudo-racism abounds. Dark prophecies. It's a fun read if you like dark.
