    One thought on “Triumph of the Darksword”

    1. I love the final book The sudden but hinted at crossover between fantasy and science fiction was intriguing, and the characters came together in a way that I wasn t at all expecting, which is always nice in fantasy, which can sometimes suffer from being a bit too predictable I thought the ending was a bit rushed, I wouldn t have minded another book between the start of the conflict and the end scene, but as I knew there was a sequel coming, it didn t bother me as much as it may have had Great tr [...]

    2. This excellent trilogy held my interest from beginning to end I would recommend reading the books in sequence as it is an ongoing epic, but Margaret Weis is a skilful enough writer to allow the reader to enjoy each of the books separately.There is also an additional book Legacy of the Darksword which deals with the aftermath of the main story, and which I intend to read next.I have no hesitation in recommending this series to lovers of swords sorcery fantasy.

    3. Thought this was a great ending to this trilogy It went from two books of fantasy to a book that was sci fi fantasy I was thrilled by the ending I hear 10 years later a book 4 was written though Not sure if I want to check it out or just be happy with the original ending I hate when authors do that angelasanxiouslife

    4. Not too bad, ends the series, but leaves a lot of questions hangingwhich is resolved by the standalone book which I am currently reading.

    5. My favorite trilogy when I was in High School I ve been meaning to re read it and see if it was as awesome as I remember.

    6. SpoilersWhilst they don t necessarily write the greatest books, Weis Hickman often write unusual and surprising ones all the unsual since the Dragonlance Chronicles are probably considered the most conventional of hack Tolkien knock offs and yet again here, they prove masters of subtly twisting the formula in a way that could be wondrous for younger adult and adult readers, long before YA fiction was a thing This series has an abundance of faults it wouldn t be a WH series if it didn t frustrat [...]

    7. The boiling conclusion to another trilogy7 February 2012 I have noticed that for a lot of these older books that I have read older referring to an earlier time in my life as opposed to the books being written a long time ago I seem to open the comment with my friend gave it to me and said that it was good Okay, with books like this one I should say that he gave me the first in a trilogy, or series, and told me that the series is really good What I find annoying though is that when I hand them a [...]

    8. I read this trilogy in High school at a time when I had little interest in fantasy read either classic literature or horror I found the trilogy absoloutly enrapturing but was sadly forced to give it back to the friend that loaned it to me Years later when I started reading heavily again I started searching for this trilogy again but it was sadly out of print and unobtainable Recently I was able to find a complete set at a used book store along with a sequel book I never knew about I have never b [...]

    9. Volume III of the Darksword TrilogyJoram has come back from the Border and with him he has broken the magical barrier that protected this magical world And with him has come another outcast with a grudge Menja is another person outcast to the Border who has been looking for a way to get back to the source of magic, and Joram made this possible.This is a story of the prodical son coming home to exact his revenge, and in time finds out his has been betrayed on the other side as well And thus has t [...]

    10. This was the volume where the most maybe only mingling of sci fi and fantasy took place At the time, I felt kind of resentful Now I guess I m mature enough to figure, Heh, if I can suspend my disbelief for the magic, I guess I can do the same for the spaceships Well, technically, it was the combination of the two that killed me, but I am trying to be an adult about it The book was really OK, and I liked the tone of the end There was a nice and rather interesting love story, and the protagonist, [...]

    11. I had not been able to find this book anywhere and happened upon it in a used paperback book store I loved the first two books and was really looking forward to the conclusion of this trilogy I donno what the authors were thinking but this went from a great fantasy series to a what the heck is going on Imagine your reading a classic tale about King Arthur and he is at the point where he forms the Knights of the Round table and all of a sudden laser beams from spaceships start raining down on cam [...]

    12. I read the first two books of this trilogy back in high school, and I recently decided to get a used copy from I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to dive into the third book without having to re read the first two, with a general recollection of the events from the first book still intact I found it a bit heavy handed with the prose, as the writers spend a couple of paragraphs in each scene for each character to ponder in self doubt, fear or despair I forget if that s something they did [...]

    13. This is a book I read a long time ago I had read the second first I hadn t noticed it said it was the second, and on top of that I hadn t hunted down the other two , then the first, and was pleased I looked forward to seeing how the third would take this world I d become fond of and make things come to a satisfying conclusion.Then I read it The sudden genre shift felt like it came out of nowhere, making it difficult at best to enjoy the rest of the book with the exception of Simkin s antics.Whil [...]

    14. The way the trilogy ended didn t really do the story justice The great build up in the second book kinda get slowed by the not so satisfying ending I m not really into the mixture of fantasy and science fiction genres but the quality of writing itself as well the emotional scenes made up an extra star for my lack of interest.The ending was somewhat unresolved as it created questions than answers I just realised that a fourth book, the Legacy of the Darksword, had been published to try to provid [...]

    15. This was the second complete trilogy we read by this author It s a downer almost Thomas Covenant depressing but I remember liking it quite a bit Like Tom the Leper, I never wanted to read it again, although I still have it around just in case As I recall, this wrapped it up well I believe they wrote further books in the series, but I never had the urge to read them This is where to stop, IMO.

    16. I just could not get into the dramatic plot change I was looking for a love story focus to go along with a fresh and original world building and what I got was spaceships and guys in armor disappearing in fairy rings, etc.I was disappointed and was expecting of what made the fist book so enticing.

    17. It s possible that I didn t really understand the ending because I was so bored I didn t like the main hero Joram, he was dull and unpleasant I remember these books as being extremely depressing.

    18. Dans ce troisi me volume du cycle La l gende de l p e noire , Joram, l orphelin du pr c dent pisode, va r aliser la terrible proph tie C est, mes yeux, le meilleur roman de la s rie, sans doute parce que c est le plus sombre, le plus d sesp r.

    19. This is the third book in a three part series, a series I did not like The authors tried to make this series into a roleplaying game, and the writing suffered in the attempt to gear it towards a rules system Also, the rules of the roleplaying game were terrible.

    20. It started off as best of the books in the series combining fantasy with sci Still had same problems as first book in series and somewhat also second sotryline was very jumpy and author just wants to glide over some issues which should be explained.

    21. Okayyyy, well we have just lost cabin pressure.I will give the Weislance some credit She wrote this 20 years before the Village, so its not a derivative work Who knew the end of the world would look like this

    22. More Margaret Weis that I could not get enough of as a teenager The Darksword trilogy was great filler in between the many Dragonlance novels These are the perfect young adult fantasy reads.

    23. The first 2 were great but this one fails to live up to their potential Read the first 2 and then imagine your own ending
