I loved this series when it came out and having re-read it still love it. Weiss and Hickman's best work (and I have read a few). Annoyingly they seem to have ran out of steam with their recent efforts. I would say it is in this volume the series really starts to come into it's own and the long term narrative across the whole series begins to suck you in, propelling you to get your hands on the next book as son as you have finished the previous. That's not to say Dragon Wing wasn't a great book, the characters in it being some of the most central to the later volumes and some early development of those characters really brings you along, the introduction to the world also providing more than enough wonder and excitement. I enjoyed the 2nd book too, Elven Star, but no where near as much, Zifnab being the main source of entertainment who is basically Fizban from DragonLance. A great series with the only minor bump being the second book, this is the one though where it really get's to it's own, but he complete scale of imagination you are introduced to in Dragon Wing makes that possibly my favourite, just. As for he later ones, I won't mention them as if thinking to buy this you wont want to know too much, but basically they rock.
