I have been engulfed in this series from the first sentance to the last word I read last night. It is a series of (to date) 11 books that have started down a forested path and has led me into a world that is ever expanding.
I have read The Belgarad and The Milarian (sorry spelling) series (Love Silk aka Prince Kelder and Durnik), the Dragon Lance series and Wizards First rule along with many others, and by far I have been more entertained and became more engrossed in these than any other.
Jordon's writing is not flowery and to the point but maintains intelligance and wit. Book 10 has slowed down the series quite a bit but it sets up events to bring all the characters back together later on.
When I am not looking for a pt on Remora I am reading this series.
Take care all and good hunting.
