Elven Star The Death Gate Cycle #2

He aristocratic elves sell weapons to the other races whose incessant warfare sends a steady steam of profits and essential resources skyward Now generations of dissent and race hatred will not heal. In the first few pages of reading this at least one thing became apparent I probably didn t pay enough attention when reading Dragon Wing because much of what I understood or thought I understood about the worlds of the Death Gate Cycle was incorrect On the other hand perhaps it was the intention of the authors to reveal the worlds in this fashion altering reader perceptions with each novelThere are a number of things that bothered me about Elven Star The forced humour was something I just couldn t get myself to appreciate The romance and seduction seuences were just silly beyond belief and there s uite a lot of that going on Many of the characters annoyed me No Hugh the Hand this time round Yet despite all this I found myself finishing the novel at a trot Not much wrong with the pacing thenAs was the case with its predecessor the world building in this novel is truly fascinating Pryan is a really really cool world and there are some awesome sense of wonder revelations later in the book Unfortunately this in itself isn t enough to make the novel truly great although it goes a long long way in restoring credibility The few tantalising glimpses into the Nexus and the Labyrinth also hinted at awesome ness Oh and the Tytans were super scary and creepy I really wanted to like Elven Star It s not bad but it should have been better I think the Death Gate and Elemental Realm concepts are really something special so I will continue reading the series with this in mind

I like the setting of the Death Gate Cycle with the different worlds However this novel was not written very well The plot was very uninspired the writing seemed amateurish at times and the character of Zifnab was just annoying I feel that this book can just be skipped without missing anything

I loved the first book I gave it five stars The characters story and the world were all interesting and compelling So how did this series went from 5 stars to 1 That s a good uestion It s like somebody else wrote this and not the original authorsThe book was so bad that I didn t even finish it There were several reasons why1 Zifnab character I hated him He was supposed to be a funny comedy relief character but to me he was just annoying and unnecessary I cringed every time he appeared2 The world It s called Realm of Fire but there is no real fire here It s just a jungle covered world where the rain almost never stops Wow really3 None of the characters from the first book are here They are just forgotten and instead we have this bland unlikable characters I did read that Haplo makes an appearance later in the book but I just couldn t pass all that drivel to actually see his appearanceIt s a shame I really liked the first book and I have a feeling that this series has potential Maybe I will finish it one day but with books like this the entire saga suffers17112016 EDIT Having continued with the series all I have to say is that the next books are amazing If you are like me and didn t like this one I recommend you to skip it and continue reading the events of this one will be re told in a future book anyway Death Gate cycle is currently my favorite fantasy series

    Easily the worst in the series the hurried prose is lackluster and the characters are flat and dull It feels phoned in and halfhearted as well as transparently irrelevant to the rest of books It's as though they adopted this story from some other project Even the Dragonlance fan service crossover doesn't lift its sails 15 stars Read it uic

    Actual rating is 45 starsThis is the second book of a series and it can be read as a stand alone novel There is a little background information but not enough that the reader will be lost That being said the reader does need to read the first one because they will all eventually tie in with each other In this one Haplo and his dog continue their journey His journey leads him to Pryan where a looming menace threatens all racesI thought thi
