Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Outlawed by the mage-priests of Thimhallen since the Iron Wars, the Ninth Mystery, called Technology, has survived only among society's outcasts until a young man born without magic and a priest who is a catalyst of magical energy form an alliance that shakes their complacent and stagnant world. The authors of the ``Dragonlance'' series again demonstrate their talent for vivid world-crafting and strong characterization in a novel that will appeal to fans of epic fantasy. Recommended. JC

I am familiar with Weis and Hickman's work from the Dragonlance stories, so I thought I would try reading their other works and I started with this one chronologically. The book was ok, but it was not compelling. Throughout the second half of the book I was continuously debating whether to continue with the series. Even now after having read the first book, I am still highly undecided. That being the case, I am opting not to finish the series. If I am going to spend another $20, I should at least feel compelled to find out what happens next. But i'm not. So I give this book 3 stars and will look to seeing how their other works compare.

I read this book about 7 years ago. I liked the series so much that the story has been with me ever since. I even named my first son Joram, after the main character in the book. Thank you Margaret Weis.
