Sword, the Ring, and the Chalice, The by Deborah Chester
I have read this series over and over again and I absolutely fell in love with it. These books are the most amazing books I have ever read- and I have read a lot! Deborah Chester deserves more fame than what she's got, all I have to do is see her name as the author and I know I will love the book! Her characters are dynamic and full of emotions. The plots are incredible, and she shows you the evil characters as other characters, not just as the evil menace that the kingdom must be rid of. She goes into detail with society and makes it seem as though it could have been a real place with real people.

Wow, that was an amazing series! I picked it out not thinking I was going to like it, but when I read it I could NOT put it down. The characters were vivid and real like they were standing right with me and the plot was complex and exciting... The Queens Gambit had me grabbing the book to see what was next! It was thrilling and I was SO happy to see Pheresa finally get a back bone! These are the best sets of books I have ever read! Make more!!

I stumbled upon it on pure luck, my birthday was a couple of weeks ago and I received a gift card to a bookstore. I got so into the first book (The Sword) that I returned and bought the remaining two plus The Queen's Gambit. If you liked The Fellowship of the Ring, you will absolutely love this trilogy. Perhaps some day we will also get to enjoy of it in the big screen also.

First of all, I would like to say that this trilogy is among the best I have ever read. I am an avid science fiction and fantasy reader and movie buff and would seriously like to see this breathtaking trilogy as a film. Like J.R.R Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, these books, if correctly adapted to the screen would be absolutely magnificent.

This is the best science fiction fantasy series I have read. I am an addict to science fiction fantasy. I connected with the characters and each of their fates made me happy or sad. The author brought each of the characters alive in away that you could bond with them. I loved and hated and grieved with Dain. I read the three books in two days. I recommend these books to anyone but warn them they will have a hard time putting these books down until the end of the trilogy.
