I spent my entire time in high school as a bigtime fantasy nerd and devoured this series. While I had forgotten many of the plot points I always remembered the series fondly and recommended it. Now, in my 30's, I have decided to re-read the series despite not having read a word of sword and sorcery style fantasy in a decade. I could not be happier. As opposed to much of what I enjoyed at that age, this book is just as enjoyable now. Just because the book covers look like standard fantasy schlock doesn't make it standard fantasy fare. Anyone who has ever loved fantasy should do themselves a favor and read this book. After the first act, you'll be hooked for the series.

AVOID THIS BOOK

IF YOU CAN GET PAST THE NUMEROUS SPELLING ERRORS AND THE FAILED ATTEMPT AT NOVEL WRITING, NOT TO MENTION THE FORWARD / BACK AGAIN WRITING STYLE. YOU WILL BE CONFUSED THROUGH 85 % OF THE ENITER BOOK. AUTHORS SEEMED TO PUT TO MUCH EMPHASIS ON WORLD DETAILS. FLOWS OF MAGIC...
IF YOU CAN GET PAST THE NUMEROUS SPELLING ERRORS AND THE FAILED ATTEMPT AT NOVEL WRITING, NOT TO MENTION THE FORWARD / BACK AGAIN WRITING STYLE. YOU WILL BE CONFUSED THROUGH 85 % OF THE ENITER BOOK. AUTHORS SEEMED TO PUT TO MUCH EMPHASIS ON WORLD DETAILS. FLOWS OF MAGIC ARE CHAOTIC BUT THEY WOULD SHOW AN ORDER THROUGH CLUMISY DETAIL. I WISH I HAD NEVER BOUGHT THIS BOOK. WHAT A WAST OF MONEY!

    Great series but beware of typos

    I read the deathgate cycle series when they first came out years ago and loved it. Having recently bought a nook reader, I decided to get this series in ebook (I still have my original paperbacks). THis ebook is riddled with typos that remind me of OCR mistakes. clark becomes dark. This ebook apparently did not received a good editing job but was rushed to get to market. I am not sure why they had to use OCR software.

    Highly Recommended Book!

    I picked up this book due to the catcher, the world has been split into four elemental worlds, and was only expecting an okay read. Something that you would read once, like it, but never pick up again. I was wrong! This is an excellent book opening for a faboulous series! Do not expect it to be your normal fantasy series!

    Great book

    This book was great. I was excited to read it when I saw it on my mom's bookself. I enjoyed the book mostly because I wanted to find what was going on with the elves and the assassin, Hugh. Bane really cracks my crystals, though. His actions confussed me, but it made the book that much more interesting. I can't waitto read the next book.

    Excellent read

    It has been some years and I don't necessarily agree with Weiss/Hickman's politics but the whole series is an excellent read. Great fun!

    First In Series Creates Suspence for Second, Third, Fourth, etc.

    This book was a great example of how this series was going to be. I couldn't put it down, and when I finally finished with it, I was anxious to start the next.

    Great Beggining to a Terrific Series!

    At first this book is confusing but without this one you would be lost with the other books so a MUST read!
