This issue was resolved, or rather deferred, in the last book by essentially having the titular sorcerer sit in a corner humming disinterestedly to himself whilst the focus of the story moved to other characters.
Deskins probably should have stuck with that strategy, because from page 1 his only method for controlling the massive, godlike power of his returned protagonist is to have him behave in a rather... stupid way. Our hero is hogging the idiot ball so hard for this entire book that he's given the Evil Gods Of Evil For Real Im Telling You Totally Evil Trust Me like 14 penalty free-throws for double-dribble by the start of the second half.
And even with all the stupid, the guy is still so massively overpowered that pretty much everyone falls into line _anyway_, without him having to actually... y'know, resolve conflicts, overcome difficulties, the kinds of things that it is the sole purpose of protagonists to do.
A last minute focus shift to legacy characters tries vainly to save the book at the last minute, but it doesn't really work.
Three stars because I guess you might as well spend the money to read on if you've made it this far-- if it was a stand alone story it'd be more like one.
Amazing story with all the elements you expect in a great fantasy book. Loads of magic, fantasy races, and battles to keep you reading. The story has enough twists and turns to keep me guessing. A must read for the fantasy lover, it reminds me of a World of Warcraft story in a book. I also love the fact that characters die and none not even the main characters are safe from death. All 8 books are 5 star. Book 1-4 is comes as a set to save you individual purchases, and these books can also be borrowed if your a Prime member. One of the best stories of all time. Don't miss it.
Other than that, its an interesting read with a non-standard fantasy universe that is fun to watch evolve.
The author is wonderful in his story and inventiveness. I can hardly wait for his next book.
Now to this book, I was kind of upset with the ending of the last one. But this one ends at the perfect place for me. I see a slight influence on Azerick, the persona of Rand'al Thor before he had his experience on Dragonmount. More of Sandy, Ghost and Wolf please( especially Wolf and Ghost's backstory). Sandy is still hilarious.
Best revelation is Azerick's natural son, though both of the son's were pretty well developed, though a little more time from Raijuan's POV wouldn't have been too bad.
Cant wait for the final battle and it's aftermath. An extra star because each of his books are at least 350 pages long. :)
*SPOILERS* I really liked the brothers-father trio dynamic; I thought it was developed and executed very well! I'll admit entering and exiting the abyss seemed a bit easy though. I'm really excited about the remote controlled metal golems; somehow, reading about their development was a particular joy.
