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.

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.

Ignore all of the bad comments and listen to the good ones. If you have ever wondered what it would be like to find love in the darkest of times, here is the book for you. This book reveals that the series isn't about Haplo trying to help Lord Xar take over the world or about Alfred being sad about his past or the effects that being dead has on a person. It is about Haplo growing into a person and how all of the people he has met along the way have effected his life as well as how he has effected theirs. By the time one reads the series up to this book it can be concluded that it belongs in the same status as LOTR. They too have spent much time on developing their own world.
So if you consider reading this series or are even just considering to carry on with it, I strongly suggest that you do.

I enjoyed this book in the series because it let me see inside Haplo more than any of the others. This is the book where real changes were happening to him...where he finally was letting go of his hatred of the dreaded Sartan enemy that had forced his people into the Labyrinth. Here he found Sartan AND Patryns living and fighting the Labyrinth together, a startling revelation for Haplo and me both! Here gentle, sweet, bumbling Alfred found courage, letting go of the guilt that had plagued him since he had awoken from his deep sleep.
Here, too, we meet up again with the giant serpents that saw a real opportunity in closing off and trapping everyone within the Labyrinth, forever feeding on the fear, hatred and hopeless that the Labyrinth pounded into its victims.
Xar, Haplo's mentor and "father", had already been convinced by lies that Haplo was a trader which was just what the serpents wanted...a divided people meant a weakened army and an easier foe to conquer on the battlefield. From here on the book focuses on the war with the serpents and Xar's belated realization that he has been fooled.
Exciting story-telling!
