Book Description

Aug. 15 2002 Sovereign Stone Trilogy (Book 2)

For two centuries the portion of the great Sovereign Stone belonging to the humans of Loerem was lost from sight and memory. But there are those who dare never forget ...

A magical relic has been miraculously recovered -- and the battle for the future of Loerem begins. It is a nightmare conflict that will ensnare dwarf, human, elf, and orken beings, as the immortal dark lord Dagnarus launches terrible war from the blackest depths of the Void. And now heros must emerge from the most unlikely corners of the world to deny Dagnarus the awesome power of the Stone -- or suffer the hideous damnation of his hellish reign.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Bestsellers Weis and Hickman (Dragonlance series, etc.) deliver a solid tale peopled by familiar figures (some of whom are Not What They Seem) in the second volume of their latest fantasy trilogy. Two hundred years after the action in Well of Darkness, the world of Loerem (conceived by fantasy artist Larry Elmore, who provides the stunning jacket art work) is plunged into war. Old hatreds and new combine with the struggle to recover all the pieces of the Sovereign Stone to uproot the characters, sending them running across lands turned hostile. While much of the work fits the classic fantasy quest tradition, the authors do manage to impart some subtle differences, such as basing cultural traits and the magic used by each race (human, elf, dwarf, ork) upon an unusual associated element. (Orks are the water race and rule the seas, while the fire-using dwarves are master horse riders.) Dagnarus, Lord of the Void, is also not the quintessential outsider that most evil overlords tend to be. Instead, he's a Mordred figure, struggling to claim what he believes is his inheritance. In places the narrative turns expository, in order to aid readers wishing to role-play in the setting. Elsewhere, the collaboration reveals its seams, as when the same object is repeatedly given two names (blood knife/bone knife) or when a long-separated elven wife and husband immediately separate after embracing, "for elves consider public displays of affection to be boorish and intrusive." The target audience, college-age readers and their teenage kin, should be well satisfied. (Nov. 20)Forecast: As with the authors' Dragonlance books, the associated role-playing game is sure to swell sales for the novel and vice versa.

From Library Journal

When Sir Gustav recovers a portion of the long-lost Sovereign Stone, he hopes that its reunion with its companion stones will bring humans, elves, dwarves, and orken together to battle the forces of the Void. A group of unlikely individuals, including a young barbarian and his traveling companion, one of the diminutive race of pecwae, undertakes the quest to bring the magical treasure to its rightful place as vicious monsters pursue them across the landscape. In this sequel to Well of Darkness, best-selling fantasy authors Weis and Hickman again demonstrate their uncanny ability to create meticulously detailed imaginary worlds peopled with complex and vital characters. For most fantasy collections.

5.0 out of 5 stars A homage to Tolkin, yet a great book. May 6 2004
By Nimrod
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Let me tell you the plot of this book, and you'll see how Tolkin gets in: Two people, in this case only one of them is a halfling, are getting a quest which involves carrying a magical item which is the key to rule the races of the world. They ae joined by a wise old person, which happens to be a wizard, and by warriors along the way. A dark Lord, which once owned the artifact, is also searching for it, sending his lethal, undead servants after the party. Reminds you something?
Yet, even though Tolkin's effect is clear, this book makes a great reading. The plot is of course much more complicated than what I wrote above, and Weis and Hickman's amazing character building, world describing and storytelling talent, makes you read this book flowingly, and be eager for more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the First Book Feb. 5 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Like the first book in the series, "Well of Darkness," I enjoyed reading it. Overall, it was written somewhat better than the earlier work. Weis/Hickman dropped a lot of the simplistic/childish atmosphere in the first book and wrote this one more for adults (that could be a function of the main characters actually BEING children in the first book). There are several logic holes/disagreements that irritate me about this book. But, they're easily forgiven. Also, the first book tended to portray Good as stupid and Evil as clever. In this book, the authors modified that a bit so that Good was merely weak, but, unfortunately, Evil is both clever and overwhelming. I don't know if that's an improvement or not. I'll have to wait until I finish the third book before I figure that out. If you've read the first book, this one is definitely worth reading, too.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
200 Years after the fall of Vinnengael, after Dagarus led his army against his brother to become king and claim the Human portion of the Sovereign Stone. 200 years after the human portion was lost, it is found...
Dominion Lord Gustav's life quest comes to in end as he finds the lost Sovereign stone. But all is not well, A Vykral, an undead creature of the Void has followed him. With orders to claim it. And a race to collect all portions of the stone commences.
This book was great. One of Weis and Hickman's best to date! They explain everything in such detail is as almost as if you are there in the fray. The character really come to life, gone are the normal straight forward evil characters. They develope them really well, giving some there own subplots that may well end up playing a huge role in the third and final book in this series.
Do yourself a favor. Pick up Well of Darkness if you have yet to do so. When finished pick up Guardians of the Lost. Then when finished with that, you can eagerly await the release of the third and final book in the Soverign Stone Trilogy (Journey into the Void)

Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thought it was very well moving and gripping. I found it difficult to put down. Now I am waiting for the third book in the Trilogy. Unfortunately, this book ends in the middle of Kaos. But I would definitely recommend reading it!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars smooth flow, enjoyable plot Aug. 5 2002
By MMO
Format:Hardcover
Although Guardians of the Lost jumps 200 years after where Well of Darkness ends, it continues the story of the fate of the Sovereign Stone and Dagnarus' (Lord of the Void) designs for gaining the stones' power and taking over the world. There are several plot threads - Dominion Lord Gustav who entrusts the Trevenici youth Bessan, pecwae Bashae and Grandmother with his mission; the unhorsed Dwarf with Trevenici woman Raven journeying to dragon mountain; a Trevenici chief trying to save his village from a void curse as he runs afoul of Dagnarus' army; an elven Dominion Lord and her wizard husband, and a rogue "almost Dominion Lord." Although this second book doesn't have the complexity and character depth of the first, the pace is fast and doesn't become bogged down. The ending is nicely unresolved, leaving the reading hanging and wanting more. A fun and fast read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book 2 keeps up the pace June 5 2002
Format:Hardcover
Guardians of the Lost keeps up the pace introduced in the first book of the trilogy. Freed from having to build a new world from scratch for the reader, the authors can devote their pages more to new plot and the resulting story flows much better. The book is a very quick read, and at times I almost feel guilty for sucking down this fantasy mind candy, but there is enough creativity in there to keep things honorable. My only complaint is that for a book that purports that good and evil exist in balanced harmony, the bad guys sure seem a lot more powerful than the good guys. As one example, consider the fact that the Vrykrl can communicate with each other over any distance by using their blood knives, whereas the Dominion Lords have no comparable skill. This small complaint is not enough to keep me from yearning for the publication of the third book, however!
