4.0 out of 5 stars At last an insight into the sundering, 19 July 2000
By A Customer
This fourth instalment delves more into the inner conflict of Haplo the patryn and his "love hate" relationship with Alfred.Many more revelations of the actual sundering are revealed with Alfreds discovery of the original council of seven. The only disapointing aspect of the book are the weak mench caracters who,unlike the previous books do nothing for the overall Grand tale. Still, a not to be missed instalment in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oceanly Ecstasy, 2 Aug 1999
By A Customer
I really loved the world of Pryan, but this comes in very close second. The authors have increadible ability at creating unique interesting worlds is unbelievalbe. The whole series is like nothing youve ever read, this just adds to the excitement. I like the introduction of the dragonsnakes and how the mysterys of Alfred become a little clearer. Go get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutly wonderful! Just as great as the rest of the series, 9 Aug 1997
By A Customer
I'm not sure why no one reviewed this (unlike the first three titles) but it's really wonderful. It's my personal favorite although the whole series is an absolute must to any fantasy lover (the whole series deserves a 10+). Weis and Hickman fans from the Dragonlance series will defenetly not be dissapointed!

This review is from: [Serpent Mage: Volume 4 "Death Cage Cycle"] [by: Margaret Weis] (Paperback)
After a somewhat lacklustre third entry, Weis and Hickman play to their strengths in 'Serpent Mage'. All the requisites of high fantasy are included, with elves, dwarves and magic vs. science. These factors are cleverly blended with the strong Death Gate scenario, brimming with originality and ideas. The setting does not overshadow the plot, with less premable and backstory than previous entries - Haplo's journey is central to the action and mayhem. Good characterisation and clever use of narrative styles create an engaging story, utilising the Death Gate scenario to almost reinvent an old angle. At times the story seems a little forced, with some trite dialogue and clumsy foreboding, however overall Serpent Mage is a worthwhile and inventive read.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Hooked!, 12 July 1999
By A Customer
This has got to be one of the best series that I have read. The first three were awsome, and it is developing rapidly. Once I read the first book, I couldn't put it down. I finished this one in two days. I have the whole series, they ROCK!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! The best so far in the entire series!, 9 Aug 1998
By A Customer
The Serpent Mage is even better than the previous three! Many questions are answered in this one! The children are great characters. This book was one revalation after another. Which leaves a very interesting perspective on the whole series.

5.0 out of 5 stars YES!!!, 18 Nov 1998
By A Customer
Extremely wonderful, as with the entire series. We get to see more of Alfred here, which is good; predictably, Chelestra is just as well-conceived and fascinating as Arianus, Pryan, and Abaraach. You MUST read this series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!, 10 July 1999
By A Customer
Not as good as the first two, but way better than the third. Serpent Mage was awesome. I got sooooo mad at Samah when he was deliberately looking for evidence of any kind tha Alfred was a traitor. This is a must-read.
