This was the first of Weis's books that I read, but it encouraged me to look into her work and to discover the other 3 books of this series, which were magnificant. This series illustrates many things that lack meaning in our society:- honour, trust, respect, loyalty, and shows them in their original and raw form. I highly recommend this series as well as the Mag 7 force series and Dark Heart to anyone, sci-fi reader or not.

The Lost King was a fine start in an equally fine trilogy. The absence of Tracy Hickman is felt, when reading this book (assuming one has also read Dragonlance, Darksword, Death Gate Cycle, Rose of the Prophet, etc.)but it is still a work of art. If the reader is familiar with sci-fi they will see plenty of things that look really familiar. But the trilogy does have an excellent plot, great character developement, and marvelous ideas. I enjoyed the first three volumes and hope to someday find the "Ghost Legion" book somewhere...

The Lost King is the first book of Margaret Weis' "Star of the Guardians" trilogy. In this novel, Weis recounts mankind's continual struggle with the most appropriate form of government: republic or monarchy.
