Start your week of with some older titles that deserve a second look
by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman
If you grew up in the late 80’s / early 90’s and were into fantasy, you probably read this book. Before there was Jordan and Martin and Erikson, there was Weis and Hickman. These books dominated, and for many young readers this was their first introduction to fantasty. I’ve probably read this series a dozen times and it never gets old.
What’s it about?
Lifelong friends, they went their separate ways. Now they are together again, though each holds secrets from the others in his heart. They speak of a world shadowed with rumors of war. They speak of tales of strange monsters, creatures of myth, creatures of legend. They do not speak of their secrets. Not then. Not until a chance encounter with a beautiful, sorrowful woman, who bears a magical crystal staff, draws the companions deeper into the shadows, forever changing their lives and shaping the fate of the world.
No one expected them to be heroes.
Least of all, them.
