Recommends it for: Fans of 1,0001 Arabian Nights or romantic fantasy of any kind.
I am horribly and hopelessly biased on this book. Ignore everything I have to say about it.

Or don't.

Truth is, not only is Margaret my boss and both she and Tracy dear friends—but I was the one who fought to bring the Rose of the Prophet books back into print. I'm the publisher of this edition (which sports a new introduction by the authors and a brand-new Larry Elmore cover, I'm proud to say). But perhaps there is a reason that I wanted to make sure this book was available again, the reason bein

I'm mixed about this book. The world and setting is amazingly realized. Familiar in all the right ways and yet fresh and vibrant. As one might expect given the authors...it is the absolute perfect RPG setting.

The story line was also solid. An epic tale of a war between gods and the handful of humans caught in between who can swing the outcome.

But the characters...oh...the characters. Sad sacks who are swept along by events from one rock to the next hardplace...sometimes by their own weakness, so

A quality trilogy by the original authors of the Dragonlance series. Interesting and entertaining in that it brings together several different fantasy cultures - Bedouins and djinns with wizards and angels, etc.. A fun read when you're in the mood for something light.

Success is achieved by the protagonist against seemingly overwhelming odds and the small good actions of some are critical to stopping the evil. Can't go wrong with that outline.

Very much enjoyed this book. It's one to read more for the world and setting than the characters though. While they are interesting characters, their development - what there is of it - doesn't come very smoothly or naturally. In part, I feel that is due to this wold they are in. So much happens due to the influence of the gods and their immortals. That does take a certain amount of agency away from the characters themselves.

Still, even where the gods don't seem directly involved, characters de

It has been a while since I read this series, but when a good friend asks for a fantasy series to read, this one seems to exchange hands. It doesn't carry the same weight as the new generation of fantasy stories, and the characters don't quite have enough depth to connect with you, but the setting and the atmosphere that Weis weaves is very enjoyable.

Written back when fantasy novels could be light, short and fun. These days, it seems fantasy is dark, gloomy, door-stoppers that never seem to conclude.

One of my personal favorites to read every couple years. A guilty pleasure maybe but it's such a fun read. I'd recommend it as a YA fantasy pick.

One of my all time favorite fantasy series. I had dinner with Weis and Hickman years ago at GenCon and they make a great team in terms of in-depth character development and world building, respectively. While they are best know for their Dragonlance series, this series is thoroughly enjoyable and light summer reading.

This trilogy was slow taking off and had a very unsatisfying ending. It's almost as if the author got tired of writing and just abruptly ended the book, without answering many of the lingering questions.

9/10

Weis and Hickman's best work in my opinion. Inventive, plays with a pantheon too with the exotic touch of the Arabian tales.

Wasn't cliched D&D type of work. Quite moving and incredibly gripping. The world creation here is intoxicating.

I've read this series 3 times and have throughly enjoyed it.

The genies were absolutely hilarious.

A must read for any fantasy readers. Thoroughly recommend this series.

Light, funny and entertaining with loads of adventures and mishaps. Never a dull moment.

Loved the feel of these books, such a great adventure. This is possible my favorite series from Weis/Hickman. Perhaps it's the Middle Eastern environment, which lends the story a highly immersive backdrop. The treatment of magic is one of the best I've ever seen in fantasy, too.

Although I read this as an omnibus, and I never read it when it first came out, I was a little disappointed at its progression. I felt I had to drag myself through the book. Sad considering how much I love their work.

I really liked this series. I liked how it went for a Middle Eastern flavor rather than the usual European.

I liked this, despite a kind of departure from the usual sword and sorcery that the duo of author are commonly known for. It's fast-paced reading but fun
