Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Abarrach, the Realm of stone. Here, on a barren world of underground caverns built around a core of molten lava, the lesser races -- humans, elves, and dwarves -- seem to have all died off. Here, too, what may well be the last remnants of the once powerful Sartan still struggle to survive. For Haplo and Alfred -- enemies by heritage, traveling companions by necessity -- Abarrach may reveal more than either dares to discover about the history of Sartan... and the future of all their descendants.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The third volume of the Death Gate Cycle just blew me away when I read it. The story takes a darker turn, looks at death and our perceptions of it, and becomes more depressing than the other books of the series, while maintaining the fast pace and enjoyability I have come to expect from Weis and Hickman. The cast of characters, again renovated, as in the first two, is by far superior to Dragon Wing and Elven Star. Living, dead, and undead, all the characters are made real by the vivid writing styles of the two authors. This book is disturbing, but also amazing. Even if you didn't like the first two, they're worth it just to get to this one. A couple warnings, though: first, this book contains some major violence, and I wouldn't recommend it for readers younger than, say 13. Another, on a different topic: make sure you have Serpent Mage handy when you finish this book, the ending is a direct lead-in to the fourth book. Amazingly enough, Weis and Hickman manage to keep the quality of the series nearly as high as this book for the last four volumes!

Okay, generally I hate morbid books, but I loved this one. I was shocked when Alfred actually risked his life several times to help Haplo, who's his sworn mortal enemy from birth. Of course, Haplo's not amused or grateful to Alfred, but he does get a kick out of him when he swears a single time. I felt soooooo sorry for Alfred. He finally finds his people, but then realizes that they're not who he hoped them to be. After thinking he's alone for so long, he finds his people, but they've turned wrong and have actually started killing each other and raising the dead to make them undead spirits. I was both terrified by and compassionate to the lazars, even though they were killing people like crazy so that they could be free.

This book renewed my faith in the Weis/Hickman team. I read the first two books of Death Gate and was disapointed. I picked up Firesea out of curiosity. But it was a lot better than the first two. Somehow, the characters seem more real. It's also funny to see how Haplo won't admit he likes Alfred, who's supposed to be his enemy. Alfred's search for meaning is made funnier by the fact that he's growing a spine through necessity. The plot was well thought-out, and chilling in some places. Of course, in others I had to stop and laugh for a while. The origin of the Sartan and Patryn is ironic, because the mensch they hold in disdain are what they came from. I ended up worried about the lazar, and how their war will turn out. At the end, it left me wondering very hard about what was going to happen in the next one.

I just finished reading this book about an hour ago. It was really awesome, but you have to have read the others to understand. *If you haven't, you may get confused by the following.* I really sympathize with Alfred because I can see how much necromancy hurts him, how much it hurts the dead, and how much it can hurt everyone on Abarrach. I also felt really super sorry for Jera and Jonathan. I cried, even! I was glued to this book and read it all in two days! I'm liking how Haplo and Alfred are at least starting to get along. I also agree with Anna about the last line-- way funny, and very interesting... thought provoking... I can't wait to read the next book!

Fire Sea was a wonderful book - I enjoyed it immensely! Dragon Wing (the first Death Gate book) was kind of slow, but if you can get past it, get ready for some great fantasy adventure! Elven Star and Fire Sea will blow you out of the water and leave you begging for more! Fire Sea is an extremely serious book - morbid, bloody, depressing - all of these words describe it well. Fire Sea is also one of the most important books in the Death Gate Cycle because Haplo and Alfred discover that there IS a higher power in the universe. If it wasn't for this important discovery, the war might have been lost. I'll stop there, so I don't give anything away! You should read it!

This book is extraordinarily grim--the other books in the series have dark elements, but this is by far the most uncompromisingly bleak. However, that doesn't make it any less of a book--Abaraach, as with all of the septet's worlds, is vivdly imagined, and the interaction between Haplo and Alfred is very well-done and interesting.

I have read two other books of the Death Gate Cycle and this one is the most memorable. Haplo and his hated nemis by heritage become unlikely traveling companions to a depressing underground world that I can only describe as living Hell. Sent to investigate this world by his master, Haplo arrives in Abaraach to investigate it's inhabitants and finds it inhabited not only by that hated race, the Sartan, but by their dead, who have become grizzly resurected hellish abominations. Necromancy quickly capture's Haplo's interest and he seeks to learn this forbidden art and take it back to his master, until the companions are captured by the remnants of the living inhabitants. The saying "some things are better left buried" takes on a whole new meaning later in this book as the poor souls of the dead trapped in indescribable agony inside grizzly remains of their bodies are rallied together against the living, whom they outnumber. I won't give any more of it away, but I will say that in it's own sickening way, it is funny when the whole place goes insane in the end and Haplo and his Sartan "friend" have to fight to escape. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy and who has plenty of imagination.
