Guardians of the Lost is the second book of the Sovereign Stone trilogy. This story takes place 200 years after the events of the first book, with Loerem torn by war and strife. Prince Dagnarus, who has extended his life since becoming a Vrykyl, has amassed an army of vicious half-beast warriors to reclaim the throne he feels he was cheated of 200 years ago. He has also added to his ranks of Void magic born Vrykyl. Dagnarus is still searching for the four pieces of the Sovereign Stone, still bel ...more

No, I'm not referring to my role as parent to two college students. Rather, the title of this entry, Guardians of the Lost, is the second novel in a fantasy trilogy, the "Soverign Stone Trilogy" by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. These authors will probably forever be known for their authorship of the original "Dragonlance" novels set in the D&D universe and while those books are the best of any other Dragonlance novels I've read, it's a shame that most readers won't look beyond that. Most ...more

The second book in the Sovereign Stone Trilogy, this book continues the saga of Dagnarus, Lord of the Void, and his continuing quest to rule all of Loerem. For the most part, we have an entirely new set of characters as the events of this book take place approximately 200 years after the previous book concluded with the death of King Helmos and Gareth, the destruction of Vinnengael and the loss of the human portion of the Sovereign Stone.

In this story, Dagnarus and his Vrykyl are again mounting

In this second book in the Sovereign Stone Trilogy, the four pieces of the Sovereign Stone are being sought by the Void Lord Dagnarus. When the human portion is discovered by a Dominion Lord, the battle for the future of Loerem begins. It will be up to an unlikely group of companions to keep the stones from the hands of Dagnarus, or their world will be lost.

I loved this book. So far as I'm concerned, if you want a classic fantasy/adventure with elves and dragons and magic and quests, there are

Recommends it for: Weis and Hickman fans, fantasy fans
This is Weis and Hickman at their absolute best. An engaging storyline with great characters (spot the kender), "good" bad guys, and an interesting world with an interesting history.

The biggest shame is that the first book in this trilogy was very much a separate story taking place some 200 years ago, while this one is obviously the first of two halves. I don't like trilogies like that. I'd prefer either three very distinctly separate books or two trilogies.

This book is also very different from

Don't pick up this book, unless you intend to buy the next in the trilogy, which is, Journey into the Void, as....the last chapter of Guardians of the Lost, leaves the reader in a Void - nothing solved!

Elves, dragons, wizards, Vrykl(evil), bad guys/creatures and good guys/creatures, and some creatures one has never ever thought of, are all in this book! The Quest, to bring the stones together for the good of all. Or, bring the stones together, so evil will reign.

A little of middle earth type sto

The second book of the Sovereign Stone trilogy keeps up, if not speeds up, the good pace set by the first book. The threat to the world is now even greater as the main villain delves deeper into the dark nature of void magic. It is developing into the classical battle of good versus evil, but the authors' skills is such that they still manage to breathe gray areas into both sides.

Excellent book. Often the second and third books in a series are not up the the first, however in this case the second book is as good if not better the the first. I highly recommend this series for anyone that enjoys Fantasy books. The authors have written a strong mature series and I cannot wait to read the final novel.

Book two of the Sovereign Stone Trilogy is much, much better than its predecessor. Without spoiling anything, I'll say this much: it's set several centuries after the events in the first book, and follows the adventures of the good guys this time. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and am eager to start in on the final book of the trilogy.
Sep 05, 2008 rated it it was amazing
This book is better than the first book in the trilogy as the characters and setting have been established and the authors can get down to telling the story. I found this to be a well thought out tale.

This trilogy was background reading for an RPG campaign set in this world. Nice bits of culture for the nations, but the story was lackluster.

This was a huge improvement on the first book of the series and was actually quite enjoyable. Intricate plot and entertaining characters.

Good world building, but poor characterization far too often, and a poorly constructed plot. Might have worked better as two trilogies.

Great Sci-Fi adventure continues. 200 years after the first novle and Dagnarous is still hell bent on getting his hands on the Stone.
