Death Gate Cycle book 6 of 7. A very well written fantasy series of a future of the Earth where magic has sundered the world into 4 new worlds, each completely different. Each book stands alone to a large extent but each also tends to build onits predecessors.
Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman do not fail to deliver in this cliff hanger. This series has turned out to be very exciting! I'm really enjoying this series. This book takes place on four different worlds (which actually turns out to be Earth torn to peices) and enemies that learn to become friends, and people who are taught to hate learn to love... People with pejudices learn to be accepting. A great concept and something that we lack in a lot of society today. Anyway, I really enjoy the characters, the interlinking stories and the plot is great!
A great series!

Ignore all of the bad comments and listen to the good ones. If you have ever wondered what it would be like to find love in the darkest of times, here is the book for you. This book reveals that the series isn't about Haplo trying to help Lord Xar take over the world or about Alfred being sad about his past or the effects that being dead has on a person. It is about Haplo growing into a person and how all of the people he has met along the way have effected his life as well as how he has effected theirs. By the time one reads the series up to this book it can be concluded that it belongs in the same status as LOTR. They too have spent much time on developing their own world.
So if you consider reading this series or are even just considering to carry on with it, I strongly suggest that you do.
another great booh be Weis and Hickman
This is fantasy amped up a notch and it is great. I read all seven and have just posted them all. I loved each and every one. Great, memorable characters and adventures galore. Weis and Hickman are legends for a reason.
