5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! March 28 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Yes yes yes, I understand that the book did not end the trilogy in the way ppl wanted not so nicely packaged and in fact a half ending that leaves you longing for more, BUT it has to end somehwere doesn't it? The madness must stop SOMEWHERE! And I think it ended very well in the dramatic way it did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent conclusion Feb. 3 2004
By Tina
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Others have critized the way this trilogy ended, with some things left unanswered.. like, who Simkin is, and Joram's friendship with the military, but I found it to be a refreshing change from the usual sappy endings.
I don't care what others say, I highly recommend this series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dude, Where's my Ending? Jan. 5 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm not going to complain, as others have, that they mixed Fantasy and SF in the same book; that's fine.
But what others call a "refreshing twist" is, IMHO, committing one of the cardinal sins of poor writing. A good author resolves a plot - characters' motivations get worked out, events progress to some natural conclusion, happy, sad, neutral, disturbing, or otherwise. Questions, at least some of them, get answered.
Weak authors build up piles of tension and intrigue then discover they've planned no way out. So instead of resolving plots and characters, they bring in new material that simply makes the previous thousand pages irrelevant.
Nations stand at the brink of war. Our hero is caught and conflicted, feeling responsible for the impending havoc. Each side thinks the other posesses the secret weapon. The motivations, hopes, and dreams of a few dozen supporting characters are balanced on the proverbial knife. The reader is on seats' edge, wondering which noble hearts will receive an unjust end, and whether villains will prosper or bleed out on the end of a white knight's sword.
When all of a sudden, a nameless, faceless force (farce?) with no logical motivation and with whom the reader has no relationship shows up and slaughters everyone. Can't figure out how to resolve that military hero, dear author? One blink of a tank's laser iris, and your conundrum vanishes - along with your reader's sense of resolution.
The series' most entertaining character and biggest enigma, Simkin, simply vanishes, with no explanation whatsoever except for some unsatisfactory handwaving in a weak and aimless epilogue.
Fun story, interesting characters throughout the trilogy. The ending, ashes and emptiness, sans denouement.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wait, what the heck just happened? Sept. 23 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Okay, let me be fair...the first two books were pretty good. Actually, when Garald taught Joram how to fence in Doom of the Darksword, I found that to be one of the greatest scenes in fantasy I've read lately. HOWEVER...what the heck happened? It's like, Joram leaves and then comes back and they don't explain it and why the heck is he friends with the military and who is Menju and what's wrong with Gwen, and, we all want to know, who the heck is Simkin? This book is lame lame lame lame!!! I read fantasy to escape from the toils of life (lol) and man, there was like Desert Storm happening in this book. Honestly, I expected Stormin' Norman to show up and save the day. This book is like a bad dream. It's awful too since the first two were so great!!! Read the first two, and like one of the other reviewers said, make up your own ending. Oh yeah, and they never explained why the people procreate like they do...

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick read June 17 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I found this book to be a real page-turner. The story went at a quick pace and was very entertaining. There was a twist in this story that many have complained about. I found the direction that the story went in to be surprising and different and this made it refreshing. In any event reading this book is a must after the first to and considering that it isn't a challenging read, you really won't be wasting your time.

1.0 out of 5 stars I regret persisting through this trilogy May 29 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read Forging the Darksword, Doom of the Darksword, and finally Tirumph of the Darksword, wanting to know how it would come out, and hoping it would get better. It did not. The pace drags, the plot fails to hang together, and the characters fail to become real. It was a waste of time reading these, when I could at least have been rereading other, better books in this genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars "...And when he returns..." May 17 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
One year after Joram cast himself Beyond, he returns from the mists, his wife Gwendolyn joining him. Ten years have passed for them Beyond. In Thimhallan, Prince Garald of Sharakan prepares for war with Emporer Xavier of Merilon. The battlefield is prepared, but something nameless rages over it, killing indiscriminately members of each side; the people from whom the ancients of Thimhallan fled centuries ago have crossed the Borders into the realm of magic, bringing with them the deadly tools and machines of Technology. Banding together, the people of Thimhallan must combine their magic with the Dark Arts to overcome the other-world intruders and save their world. Meeting at the Temple of the Necromancers, Joram, Saryon, and Gwen must battle both worlds, being betrayed by each -- it seems the only course of action is for Joram to return to the earth what he took from it.
I've re-read the entire trilogy in the span of the past six days, it being difficult to do anything else. Weis and Hickman, with their writing genius, know how to draw a person into a new world and keep them there. While more military in nature than magical, this book and its events conclude the Prophecy that bound them all together, drawing everything to a close in an unexpected way, but is still tinged with hope. Included in this final book is an appendix describing the game of tarok.
