If it were I would easily give it more stars because the Darksword trilogy, just like the Dragonlance series, was a huge part of my childhood and still reads well today. No, this review must unfortunately reflect the Kindle edition of this book which is, sad to say, absolutely atrocious. There are just way, way too many typos The adaptation to ebook is truly horrible. Is a little proofreading too much to ask? I mean, at least learn to properly use spell check or something.
I highly recommend picking up the Darksword series in print preferably an older printing through a used bookstore because I have zero confidence in any new editions based on this execrable ebook. It’s a very good story if you can get a better version. I had this book in my collection years ago but never read it and now wish I would have read it then.
The storyline behind this book is amazing and clever; something that will keep you enthralled to the very end. Hickman and Weis are outstanding story writers. If you love the fantasy genre this book is a must read! I read alot of fantasy, and this i. I very much love this trilogy!!! I read alot of fantasy, and this is one of the more engrossing stories, with an un-sympathetic main character who I happened to relate very closely to.
But sadly neither of the main characters were likeable so who cares what they do or why? Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. Behind this book there is a really intriguing idea: To use any sort of technology is to be using “the dark arts”.
Speaking of magic, this book also has a very unique magic system, in which pretty much everyone in society can use magic, but only certain individuals have the ability to recharge your ability to use it. So basically when your tank runs dry you have to rely on someone known as a catalyst to recharge your magical energies. They also regulate the amount of energy they allow a person to have based on the person’s class – their status in society.
Now, through into the mix that religion, the church, pretty much dominates society, and you have the ingredients of a really interesting story. This story has the potential for some really thought provoking stuff – and that’s why I read, to be entertained and be forced to think about things. The problem of this story is the protagonist. On the one hand, we have a man named Saryon, who is part of the church.
His quest for knowledge leads him to a forbidden section of the library that contains all the texts on “technology” why isn’t that area under lock and key?? He’s discovered and reprimanded, and he thinks that’s the end of it.
I would say more but I don’t want to ruin any surprises further on. He’s a really good character though.
Doom of the Darksword by Margaret Weis, Tracy Hickman | : Books
He’s not the problem. The problem is a character named Joram, who was born without any magical talents. Darkswodd that in this society, children like Joram are considered “without life” or “dead”. If you are born “dead” you are suppose to be killed.
Joram avoided that tragic end, and while growing up he got pretty good at sleight of hand, and has been able to fool everyone. Unfortunately way too much time was focused on his upbringing, which I found completely absurd. His mother is completely crazy and abusive, and Joram himself keeps to himself and has a dark, brooding quality to him.
I feel like this could have been a brilliant book if the authors had chosen to leave Joram out of it. Perhaps he could have been a minor character.
Kudos on the authors flrging Dragonlance, parts of The Deathgate Cycle, and their newest nordic inspired book series, but Darksword is not one of their best. Enjoyed the read good diversion. I read this book a long time ago and while rereading it I was taken back to the first time.
