Overview

Born without magic, Joram was one of the Dead, denied the throne of Merilon. For years, he lived  among outlaws, surviving by wit and  sleight-of-hand. Now, wielding the powerful, magic absorbing  Darksword, Joram retums to the enchanted Kingdom that  once was his home to win revenge and claim his  birthright. Here he will test Bishop Vanya and his  fierce army of Duuk-tsarith in a battle unlike any  their world has known. Joined by the scholarly catalyst Saryon, the young mage Mosiah, and the  trickster Simkin, Jorma confronts the shattering  secret of his past and discovers the ancient prophecy  that puts the fate of the world in his hands—the hands that forged the Darksword.

I really have not read a Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman book that I have not liked and this series is right on point. I read these books back some years ago in middle school but re-reading them now I am really enjoying them. Simkin would have to be my favorite character but they are all well developed and the plot and storyline are fabulous. Ready to start the third one now and just found out there was a fourth one realeased ten years after these were so gotta find that one too.

This book was great...It's such a good book, that I could read it and understand what was happening even without reading the 1st book in the trilogy. These authors develop the characters in a excellent way, letting you do most of the thinking. It was very interesting through the whole book. However, the end of this book was a bit of a cliffhanger, but I cant be sure of that since I have not read the third book!

Hi I am a twelve year old male from Ohio that read the book Doom of the Darksword for my 7th grade English class. The book was great in my opinion. It was exciting and very fun to read. The book takes place in what I think was the medievil time period which includes mystical surroundings, magic, and warlocks etc. Well anyway the book kept me in suspense. The thrill of the main character, Joram, and his life being unfolded is just catchy. I would recommend this book to anyone that will enjoy a 'fictional thriller' type of book. I commend the authors for their great work.
