Loved this book - had trouble finding another epic series to read and was very pleased with this. Interesting plot and characters.

Yes, I know, I started reading this series only in 2012, even though I am a huge fan of the first 2 trilogies of Dragonlace by the same authors, so I should be flogged :) This series(I am currently reading book 5) is simply excellent. It's the old MW and TH magic working again(it stopped working later on, starting with Dragonlance SEcond Generation IMHO), but here, you get great characters, great worldbuilding and great storytelling, making this 380 pages book read likes it's 25 pages so much you will devour it quickly. A great read! :)

In all probability, people who read the first of the Death Gate Cycle books and like it, are going to want to read all of the books in the series (regardless of any flucutation in the individual books' ratings). Ditto for the reverse: if people don't like the first book, then they're probably not going to want to read any of the other books in the series. Thus, instead of individual book ratings, I've rated the whole series and given a short blurb on any specifics for each book.
Overall, this is a very good series. The authors were amazingly creative in coming up with this concept and the books are well-written, extremely interesting, and internally consistent (mostly -- see below for some exceptions). I highly recommend this series of books for everyone. My comments for the indidual books follow:
Vol. 1 -- Dragon Wing: This book covers the exploration of Arianus: the realm of Air. It introduces us to the two main characters (Haplo and Alfred) and many of the recurring characters throughout the series. It's a well-paced, well-written book that's an excellent reresentation of what to expect in most of the rest of the series. Essentially, if you like this book, you'll like the other six books. If you don't like this book, then there's no sense in reading any of the others.
Vol. 2 -- Elven Star: This book covers the exploration of Pryan: the realm of Fire. Alfred is entirely missing from this book, and Haplo isn't really the centerpiece. Instead, the book is mostly written from the perspective of the mensch and of the newly introduced (and recurring) Zifnab. The one possible weakness in the book is that Weis/Hickman wrote it such that the structure of Pryan itself is more of a mystery than Arianus was in the first book.

I read quite a bit of fantasy, but never felt a strong desire to read this one; I mistakenly thought it to be more Sci-fi than Fantasy. However, I came across Dragon Wing at a garage sale, it sat around the house for a while, and one day on a whim, I picked it up. Other than popping online to order the rest of the books and a couple of bathroom breaks, I do not think I quit reading until I had finished. The characters are amazingly rendered, and true to life. I enjoy a book like this that you can read and enjoy as a stand-alone title, but has sequels so if you cannot get enough there is more story! Highly recommended to all fantasy fans, I find this a slight cut above most current fantasy in this "POST-Harry Potter" world. The story is dramatic, action packed and a bit more REAL than most of the fluff I have read lately. 5/5

This is probably the best series of books I have ever read (I haven't read Tolkien yet. I KNOW, I'm sorry!). I just cannot say enough good things about this book series. I literally read it 3 times through, and each time I can relate to a different character and come to see it from their perspective.
The way that Tracy and Margaret bring the characters to life significantly contributes to the reason this series of books is so great. By the end of the 1st book, Hugh the Hand (Best Assassin in the world), Alfred(Sartan Mage), Haplo(Patryn Mage), Bane(son of most powerful human mage alive), and the rest of the characters have almost come to life in your mind.
If you're going to read Fantasy(Or SciFi) start with this! The sense of depth these books have to them makes you wonder if it's actually historical fiction that Margaret and Tracy are writing about and the index each book has is absolutely amazing. Whenever you're confused about something the characters are making reference to (or if you 'missed' [skipped, lol] the part when the character's were discussing it) you can simply look it up in the back index and you'll understand it better than you would have just reading straight through. (THEY EVEN HAVE DIAGRAMS OF EVERYTHING!)
Margaret and Tracy together are unparalleled writers equal to only a few such as Tolkien, Piers Anthony, Knaak, Louis Lamour(SP?) and the like.
I won't be suprised when this series becomes the next movie series. Except for the fact that since the book's environs are so diverse (they 'literally' create whole worlds with flora and fauna and a whole system of language [actually I think it might be latin]) the movie industry right now might not be up to it.
Finally, if you're worried about it being too advanced or too intellectual, don't.
