It should be enough to say Margaret Weiss. But this whole series is great. I was not a reader of sci-fi/fantasy on the days prior to the "I Do" and was very skeptical about any new story. This was the second series I read, under much hesitation and protest...only to come to love the characters so much, I actively went looking for more stories involving them. It's a good read, with engaging characters and epic themes of evil and good and the battle to remain true to who you are and keep the world a good place. It also has strong themes of frienship and honor. One of my all time favorites.
