An EXCELLENT series. While the idea of dragons and magic, dwarves and D&D are all nothing new, the premise of this series is that present day people like you and me, fans of role-playing, find themselves trapped in the world they once played in, as the people they played. Now they CAN die, (some do in the series), and sword slinging and magic casting will get no help from rolling dice! It almost hurts me to give up these books.
A very good book. For those familiar with the series, this is the last one that really follows the characters brought over from "Our side" in the first book. Andrea gets some really great development here, and there's tons of Slovotsky being awesome. Also, has more magic than the rest of the series combined.
From Library Journal
An influx of magical creatures from the border of faerie brings veteran adventurer Walter Slovetsky out of semi-retirement to confront his greatest challenge--his own fear of commitment. With each volume in the series, Rosenberg moves further away from his original premise in which fantasy gameplayers found themselves transported to their gameworld. Although the ambience of fantasy heroes with modern sensibilities still provides a major source of the series' appeal, the author's maturing storytelling talent transcends the need for an obvious "hook." Also known for his fast-paced military sf, Rosenberg is emerging as a significant fantasy author. Recommended where the series is popular.
