If I were to write up a list of the best series I had ever read, this would be in the top five. (Black Company by Cook, The Damned Trilogy by Foster, Obsidian Chronicles by Watt-Evans, Amber by Zelazny, and Uplift by Brin)

One thing that each of those series has in common is that each author knows how to write a realistic character. Watt-Evans is perhaps the best of them at understanding the way people's minds work. Characters are not paragons of good or evil, but real people who will not always do exactly what you expect them to do.

Each of the authors on that list can also write a fantastic and unique setting. Don't get me wrong, I'll read derivative books and love every page, but reading something new AND well written is always a pleasant surprise.

The setting holds true internally. Don't you hate books where the characters are great, but the world simply wouldn't work? Well this isn't one of them. Watt-Evans thought the laws of this universe through and stuck to them through the entire series.

Really enjoyed this sci fi !!! good against evil and how one child grew to be so honor bound. Fast action read, liked the characters and NOT a wacked out kind of story, kept my attention from page one with actual people I felt a bond with. recommend it.

The Count of Monte Cristo with dragons and magic. Lots of fun and well worth the read.
