Trilogy has a lot of potential, an original setting., August 1, 2005
Reviewer: C. T. Hunter "chips_books" (Gainesville, FL United States)

Yet another unique and creative world is created by Weis and Hickman in this trilogy from the authors of the Dragonlance Chronicles trilogy. In the Rose of the Prophet trilogy, a divided world ruled by separate gods, each jealous of the others, is the scene for a dramatic story of love, pride, and deceit. While the plot and the characters took a while to fully develop, by the end of this first book the reader is totally absorbed in a world in which nearly everything is possible. The characters are well defined and likable, and the story has potential to be a truly great fantasy trilogy.

While there are obvious parallels between this new world and our own world (especially comparing modern religions with the psuedoreligions of the story) and some of the characters seem a little mold-fitting, the story and the realm are both original in the extreme. Weis and Hickman are masters at creating new and unique settings and they have proved it once again in this trilogy.

Great 3 book series by Weis & Hickman! Loved Khardan, Zohra and Mat-hew... also loved the depth of the nomad life including the dictionary of their language!

I loved this series. It is one of my favorites by Weis & Hickman. It is a great change from the typical dwarf and elf fantasy and takes you to more of a land of Aladin. There is the mystery, romance, and amazing character building.
I think you'll enjoy!
