I really enjoyed the previous six. The first few I thought were especially strong. The world building was great, as was the characterisation and they really had me gripped.

A terribly disappointing end to what started out as an awesome series. Almost no story arcs had a true resolution, random stuff that doesn’t make sense showing up from left field, and an epilogue that’s some dumbed down version of the story’s original premise. Hint: If, when you’re done writing a saga, you need to simplify what you were trying to say the whole time in the epilogue of a seven book series – you fail. Your readers are not idiots. If you wanted to preach ...more
The Deathgate Cycle is one of my favorite series ever. Everything about it - all 7 books - are just... high fantasy perfection.
- The world (or rather universe) is amazingly unique, stunning in set up and description, and terrifically told.
- The magic and its use is top notch. It's one of few series that really go into HOW the magic of the world works.
- The characters are all highly memorable, including "Dog", the secondaries, the ...more
En La Séptima Puerta veremos casi la misma cantidad de elementos narrativos que en los anteriores: giros, revelaciones, nuevas aportaciones…Esto lo debemos sumar a que se debe culminar una saga que cuenta con un extenso mundo fantástico. Así que no entiendo el ...more
This is not a perfect book or series, it's not complex and quite straight forward , unlike modern fantasy books. It's far better then modern YA series, and with all it's simplicity it's complex enough to stand it's own against modern fantasy books and it has more heart than some of them combined.
Some character learned nothing in all these books, ...more
Where do you end a series that has had so much involved in it? That was a question I continued to ask myself while reading through the book like an addict. Finally it happened, I can say I am happy with the way it ended to a certain extent. T ...more
After this much build-up over a seven-book storyline, perhaps it's understandable that expectations can't be completely met. Personally, I think that the series could have wrapped in six books, and I think they purposefully wanted seven in order to match the number of gates. Even this, the shortest of the bunch, felt overly stuffe ...more
The main one, I'd have to say, is the lack of closure for almost all the characters. At the end, we get a resolution of sorts for a good chunk of the characters (Haplo, Marit, Alfred, Hugh, Jonathon, Xar, and to a certain extent, the rest of the Sartan and Patryns, as well as the serp ...more
Instead, what do we get? Magic explained with science, false protagonists, villain protagonist, anti villains, breaking the fourth wall (and with impeccable style, courtesy: Zifnab),subversion of the stereotypes of elves and dwarves, deconstruction as well as reconstruction of the id ...more

In the vastness of the ocean, is any drop of water greater than another?
No, you answer, and neither has a single drop the ability to cause a tidal wave.
But, I argue, if a single drop falls into the ocean, it creates ripples. And these ripples spread. And perhaps - who knows - these ripples may grow and swell and eventually break foaming upon the shore.
Like a drop in the vast ocean, each of us causes ripples as we move through our lives. The effects of whatever we do - insignificant as it may seem - spread out beyond us. We may never know what far-reaching impact even the simplest action might have on our fellow mortals. Thus we need to be conscious, all of the time, of our place in the ocean, of our place in the world, of our place among our fellow creatures.
For if enough of us join forces, we can swell the tide of events - for good or for evil.”
