He held the fate of two worlds in his hands...
Once he was an orphan called Pug, apprenticed to a sorcerer of the enchanted land of Midkemia.. Then he was captured and enslaved by the Tsurani, a strange, warlike race of invaders from another world.
There, in the exotic Empire of Kelewan, he earned a new name--Milamber. He learned to tame the unnimagined powers that lay withing him. And he took his place in an ancient struggle against an evil Enemy older than time itself.

The Riftwar books launched the beginning of a golden age of post LOTR fantasy series, to be followed by Weiss/Hickman's Dragonlance and, of course, R.A. Salvatore's Drizzt. If a new reader set out to read those three series -- others will certainly have different favorites, but those are mine -- they will have several years of wonderment ahead.
I am so glad I started this book. It is amazingly well written, and I felt the connections with each of the characters. I can't wait to start diving deeper into this world. If you were like me and have passed over this book, stop now, and pick it up.
Be warned: From everything I have gathered, there are around thirty books in this Legacy. Get ready for some hardcore reading.
If you're looking for a great read with dragons, magic, kings, queens, betrayal, love and despair then you're going to love this.
Oh there's also dwarves with mystical hammers *coughs* Tolkien... *coughs*
In retrospect it seems like the original book was begging for a split. Almost exactly half way through, there was a major change in direction. The focus moved from one world to another along with the central character, Pug. Naturally, the Apprentice and Master mentioned in the book's titles refer to Pug's stages in his training as a magician.
I was not completely happy with the remaining books in the series, however, the two Magician novels are perfect and also work well without ever reading the proceeding books. The characters are real, rich and engrossing. The plot is complex but focused. The environment, is carefully crafted, particularly the political landscape.
At the risk of becoming hackneyed, you will have difficulty putting these books down. The underlying level of suspense is intense which in itself is the sign of a good writer but even more, you will begin to care deeply for Pug and a need will grow to find out how everything turns out.
