One of the best 'fantasy' series ever! The writing is a little stiff, the concerns at times a little too post-modern, but it is ORIGINAL, something we haven't seen in this genre for many moons. Cool beans.

I am not going to start out by saying how much fantasy I have read. I am not going to start out by comparing Lucas' story and Claremont's writing to the likes of Jordan/Martin/Brooks/Tolkien/Goodkind. I am not even going to tell you how amazing this series is. What I am going to say is that if you are a true fan of fantasy, if you are willing to give up hours of your time, if you are willing to immerse yourself in the writings of an absolute genius, then BUY these books. Claremont, a writer of the X-Men comic series for years, and Lucas, well, we know what HE did, teamed up to take the Willow movie and go before and after the events outlined there. Claremont simply blew me away with the pictures he painted, and the skillful way he explored the minds of his characters. Keep in mind, this is considered "dark" fantasy, and as such can be a bit blunt. Lastly, if I ever do sit down and put my epic story to ink, I am going to include a warrior woman like Khory Bannefinn in this series....she is AWESOME!

This is a book series that I have been following since I discovered the first book in a local bookstore. Since I am an author myself I read a lot and can tell a good book when I see one. These books are very well written. I love the main character and her transformation from a spoiled princess into a confidant warrior woman. No, don't get me wrong, these aren't you're fuzzy-footed unicorn books. They document a war and there is a lot of fighting and people do die in this trilogy. In it he creates a whole new world for us, with new races and the ultimate evil to fight against and a wonderful ending to it all in the battle the whole series builds up to. They are wonderful books and I would recommend them to anyone.
