"A must read for any fan of Lord of the Rings.This series is Tops. The plot, the characters, the hero, the villians, and most importantly the world in which this story takes place. You will find yourself not being able to put down the first few books,later on you will fidn yourself skimming at times though. BottomLine-read this series, decide how far you want to go into it at a later time"
"Top Notch Series. Ive read all four books and have not been disapointed yet. The plot is awesome, the intrigue is great, the suprises blow you away. he ties it all together wonderfully. Another Must Read"
"Pretty good series but I would pass before you got to involved in it. If you can read the first book w/o feeling the need to get deeper into the series, then go ahead, its good. At times i feel the author takes the easy way out for the hero instead of ebing really creativity. I do like the basis of the story though"
"A little different world than that of tolkien, but similar in alot of respects. regardless, an Elite series based on the main character and the world he lives in. Read this series, its not a great work of literature, but for pure enjoyment, its 5 stars. on a side note, im into the 2nd book of icewind dale, a nothc below, but still pretty good up till this point"
"just finished the 3rd book. pretty good up till this point. i was alittle dispointed in how drizzt was portrayed in the first book of this series, didnt seem quite as admirable. though in the 2nd book i didnt notice this. fast-paced, easy reads."
"pretty good series. definetly not on the level of tolkien, jordan, or martin, but it can be good at times. I would try to find better, but if not, this will suffice to pass the time. basically pretty enjoyable, but nothing that blows you away as far as plot, charatcters, surprises, action, ect"
"just finished, this is a 3 star book. interesting storyline, just takes basically till the end to grasp what is going on. also not enough background info on the main villians till real late in the story. missed the boat on realy detailing the pain of the princes transformation to the star bearer. no where near the same feel as tolkien, jordan ect"
"3.5 Stars the good:easy-fast paced read filled with magic, elves, dwarves, good vs. evil,well written,likeable characters the bad: "aliens" from another world, lacks world building, the last 1/4 of the book covers a large time frame with gaps, just finised 2nd book, liking it more so far than the first. starting to get the wow factor. not a must read but worth reading."
"this book was really good at times and very average at others. i would rate it somewhere between 3-3.5 stars. next book needs to be better or i will be disapointed in this series, though i have high expectations in what im looking for. finished the 2nd book, and jones stepped it up a notch with this installment, really looking forward to book3 and would recommend this series to most"
"READ THIS SERIES! hobb is good storyteller/writer. series is interesting from the start and reads very easily/fluid. i rate it 4.5 stars and still have one more book to go.book 2 takes on a more epic scope and magic plays a bigger part. DO NOT PASS THIS OVER!"
"just finished the first 2 books, thought 1st book was good not great, nothing really "wowed" me, 2nd picks up imo. though the charactirization is great, the story reads easily and has a nice flow, and the story line is tight and comes together smoothly. the last part of book 1 is top notch and book 2 is a page turner. MUST give this series a chance also,"
"rate this book 4 stars. very original. great story but told only good. BE FOREWARNED, the first chapter is brutal and really isnt that relative to rest of book. will be reading the 2nd book very soon, MUST GIVE this series a try."
"just finished this book and enjoyed it. looking forward to the 2nd book, but must give a warning, it takes alittle time to connect the dots on what all is happening and just what exactly some of the charachters are. i give it 4 stars, alot of orgiginality"
