So you all thought Edward, from that wretched Twilight, was the original Dark and Moody"?

Joram, and the little innocent girly, are the gag-worthy successor of Romeo and Juliet, and the precursors of Edward and Bella.

The story overall screams "Generic Fantasy". So you'll enjoy it but not be blown away. Kind of like a hamburger at McDonalds. It is "food". Good thing this is only a trilogy." ( )

This was the second complete trilogy we read by this author. It's a downer - almost Thomas Covenant depressing - but I remember liking it quite a bit. Like Tom the Leper, I never wanted to read it again, although I still have it around just in case. ( )

I liked the Darksword books, they are probably my 2nd favorite Weis/Hickman series after the original DragonLance books. ( )

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. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553271644, Mass Market Paperback)

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.
