    • I loved the first book. I gave it five stars. The characters, story and the world were all interesting and compelling. So, how did this series went from 5 stars to 1? That's a good question. It's like somebody else wrote this, and not the original authors.The book was so bad, that I didn't even finish it. There were several reasons why:1) Zifnab character. I hated him. He was supposed to be a funny, comedy relief character, but to me he was just annoying and unnecessary. I cringed every time he [...]


    • In the first few pages of reading this, at least one thing became apparent: I probably didn’t pay enough attention when reading Dragon Wing, because much of what I understood, or thought I understood about the worlds of the Death Gate Cycle was incorrect. On the other hand, perhaps it was the intention of the authors to reveal the worlds in this fashion, altering reader perceptions with each novel.There are a number of things that bothered me about Elven Star. The forced humour was something I [...]


    • Don warned me that this was his least favourite book in the series, and yep. It pretty much sucked. Everything that made the first book so good was basically absent from this one.Plot: In Dragon Wing, the plot started early, and it was interesting right from the beginning. Political intrigue, backstabbing, revolution, and everything all intertwined into an engrossing, twisty plot. In Elven Star, the plot took forever to get going, and when it did, it was clunky, awkward, and uninteresting. I mea [...]


    • Siglos atrás, unos brujos de gran poder dividieron el mundo en cuatro reinos (cielo, piedra, fuego y mar), y a continuación desaparecieron. Hoy únicamente los pocos que han sobrevivido al Laberinto y han atravesado La puerta de la muerte conocen la existencia de los cuatro reinos.Con "La Estrella de los Elfos" visitaremos Pryan, el mundo de fuego, que no es otra cosa que un pequeño mundo selvático, plagado de vegetación, donde viven unos elfos que tienen poco que ver con los típicos elfos [...]


    • You know, whenever I'm lucky enough to find a reasonably literate person who has read some fantasy novels, I'm always surprised by the fact that - as far as I can recall - none of them have read The Death Gate Cycle. Granted, I had some holdover nostalgia from the Dragonlance Chronicles for Weis and Hickman, and so I probably had more cause to read them than most, but, even solely on their own merits, these are really excellent books. They're filled with interesting and nuanced characters - Hugh [...]


    • fastread it in 5 short hours. Zifnab is the best of all crazy mages the Weis-Hickman duo ever came up with. better than fizban, and definitely far funnier than gandalf the grey. the duet between zifnab and his dragon provides the much too needed comic relief in this extra long story of seven books.


    • Actual rating is 4.5 stars.This is the second book of a series and it can be read as a stand alone novel. There is a little background information but not enough that the reader will be lost. That being said, the reader does need to read the first one because they will all eventually tie in with each other. In this one, Haplo and his dog continue their journey. His journey leads him to Pryan where a looming menace threatens all races.I thought this book was better than the first one and I really [...]


    • I like the setting of the Death Gate Cycle with the different worlds. However, this novel was not written very well. The plot was very uninspired, the writing seemed amateurish at times, and the character of Zifnab was just annoying. I feel that this book can just be skipped without missing anything.


    • De serie wordt voortgezet in een heel nieuwe wereld met een heel nieuwe set personages (op 1 na). Hoewel ik de personages van deel 1 beter vond, was de hele nieuwe wereld met zijn eigen geschiedenis en relatie tussen elf, mens en dwerg erg interessant. Ik ben erg benieuwd hoe de volgende wereld eruit ziet en hoe de geschiedenis van de splitsing van de wereld nou is verlopen.


    • I’ll start by saying that Pryan is another fascinating, otherworldly planet, unique in scope like Arianus inDragon Wingand Aberrach inFire Sea . The planet is turned inside out, meaning its surface is on the inside and subjected to constant daylight by four “stars” centered at the core. Naturally, this creates a planetary greenhouse effect, which causes the jungle-laden surface to sprout mega trees the size of continents. Elven Staris also interesting for its diverse cast of species & [...]


    • Ha sido todo un acierto recuperar esta serie que leí por primera vez durante mi adolescencia. Como era de esperar, esta relectura la ha privado del barniz de obra maestra que le apliqué entonces, pero aún así ha pasado la prueba con creces. Se trata de una colección de libros en la que tiene cabida la reflexión sobre grandes temas pero que se sustenta, sobre todo, en unos personajes carismáticos, un universo rico y complejo y un ritmo narrativo adictivo que deja espacio suficiente a los d [...]


    • In book 2 of The Death Gate Cycle, Haplo travels to the second world created after the sundering of the natural world into four components: air, fire, earth, water. Pryan is the world of fire. The world is so lush with vegetation that most people have never seen the ground; they live in cities built on top of moss beds in the treetops. The humans, dwarves, and elves have minor skirmishes with each other but basically keep to their own races. However, an ancient enemy is threatening the lives of [...]


    • While I like the basis of the story so far in the series the biggest problem I have with this book is the same I had with the first. It's having two authors. One author will describe for example the dragon early in the story and it was describe "He was enormous. His head towered above the trees. His body's full length was lost in the shadowy depths of the jungle. He was wingless, for he lived all of his life in the dark depths of the jungle floor, slithering around the boles of Pryan's gigantic [...]


    • Segunda parte del "Ciclo de la Puerta de la Muerte". Un poco más corto que el primer libro pero no por ello menos interesante.A mí me gustó este libro mucho más que el primero, aunque puede que sea porque éste incluye un poco de amor y sobre todo a Zifnab. El mejor personaje de toda la saga (que creo también aparece en Dragonlace). La primera vez que lees lo que dice te descoloca muchísimo. Las conversaciones con "su" dragón son desternillantes."- ¡Gandalf disfrutaba de una buena pipa!- [...]


    • So reading this book I confirm that we humans never learn, it seems that humans, elves, dwarfs and other species had once lived together but could not stop bickering each wanting to have the ultimate power to dominate and enslave the other species!! elves saw humans as dumb and only good for slavery, dwarves where selfish and thought only of their own race and hence took to their underground world away from the rest and till this day we still fight amongst ourselves race against race to acquire [...]


    • I enjoyed this one just about as much as Dragon Wing. Another very interesting world, and mysteries to be revealed towards the end.I'm enjoying the concept of this 7 volume series very much. I know the next two are stories of the other two worlds, and I'm sure they'll be as fun and interesting as the past two have been, from the reviews I've seen so far.Like other reviewers, I, too, was annoyed with Zifnab's real-world remarks. It took away from the authentication of the fantasy world for me.But [...]


    • Segunda entrega de la saga y que sorprendentemente supera a su predecesora, Ala de dragón. La trama principal sigue su curso mientras que la autoconclusiva casi rivaliza en interés a lo largo de sus más de cuatrocientas páginas.La estrella de los elfos supone una especie de estudio sociológico que se puede trasladar perfectamente a la sociedad actual y en la que se tocan temas como el racismo, el clasicismo e incluso el sexismo. Una muy buena continuación y que sigue ampliando el universo [...]


    • Encore un monde qui se révèle incroyable. La menace qui pèse tout du long du livre pousse à lire plus vite et fascine. Les digressions un oeu fofolles de Zifnab sont excellentes et les nombreuses références à notre monde que le lecteur est seul à comprendre sont un vrai plaisir. J'ai juste hâte d'aller visiter les autres mondes maintenant.


    • Very light fantasy that reuses a lot of the known fantasy tropes but fun. I never read the Dragonlance (Dragons) series but I can see how these authors make a good team. I never did move on to the next book in the series. May try to complete one day but not a high priority.


    • I just re-read these books, and I remember how much I love them! It's a series that will think is only good until you've finished all of them. It has my favorite magic system and is just a great all around read.


    • This book was much better than the first one. Story is still hard to follow and then some jokes just do not fit to normal fantasy novel. It tries to have Terry Pratchett like humor, but it just seems so out of context.




    • Moves a bit slower than the rest of the series, but another one that's ultimately necessary to the overall story.


    • It's a great book, and better than book 1. The worldbuilding is superbly crafted, the plot is great, and Fiznab (Fizban) is a very funny character.5/5


    • Book 2 in the series. Follows Haplo, who isn't my favorite character. I prefer Alfred. The story is interesting, and we meet elves who are snuffy and prissy, woot.


    • I mentioned in my review of book 1, that this one is the first one of the saga that I read, and I absolutely fell in love with it, when I was very young.It doesn't stand the test of experience (as in being older and having read so, so much) at all.It's a young-adult fantasy novel and that's about it. The characters have neither depth nor arc or development, their story lines are painfully predictable, and it's only a remake of the previous book changing only the setting and some characters.We ad [...]


    • This book continues Haplo’s quest to visit each of the four sundered worlds to search for signs of the Sartan and stir up revolution and dissent between elf, dwarf, and human for the arrival of his lord. This time he visits the fiery world of Pryan; fiery in the sense that it is a hot jungle where the sun never sets, not literal fire. I found this clever, and it avoided the possibility of Mt. Doom derived landscapes. The world building and magic systems are thorough and impressive, Weis and Hi [...]


    • Let's just disclaim and say I have a real, semi-inexplicable fondness for Death's Gate.Yeah, this shouldn't be the strongest entry, as the plot hinges on a couple of romances which are not the series' strong point. But it's not that they're unlikable or totally implausible, just that they aren't fleshed out or explained to any satisfaction. Dang it though, the individual characters are appealing, and the relationships between the three elf siblings especially are done REALLY well. Drugar is good [...]


    • First of all: (view spoiler)[Dyson spheres don't work like that (hide spoiler)]. Ok, no more spoilers.Apart from the very bad characterization, the mediocre and slow story, the unrealistic scenes where people hear each other from half a day of walking distance and the ridiculously jumpy scale of the world (sometimes it's multiple weeks of travel, sometimes it's just a city), the book was ok. Ah, and Fizban was really annoying. I tolerated him in Dragonlance, he is comparably ok when you have the [...]
