    Haplo's amazing journey comes to an action packed conclusion in a world filled with rich and entertaining characters from the hilarious Zifnab, the mage who is more than he seems, to the nefarious Sang-drax, a villain as cunning as Shakespeare's Iago. The worst part about reading this book was knowing that the series was over. The ending could have been a little stronger, but it did nothing to ruin this epic tale.

    This was an escellent book. Haplo's plight's and Alfred's clumsyness, Xar's extravagent vision, the psycotic contradictions of the Death's Gate...such a great book! The only thing that bugged me was the ending. I understand that the ending is sometimes the hardest to write, but still. San-Drax making such an obvious mistake at the end when he was so cool and precise, never making a mistake. Other than that, the book was awesome. A must read!

    Well, this book suprised me, I was not able to predict the ending of this great series, kinda disappointing. I do not know of everybody but I think all the books need more Zifnab, the character that I enjoyed the most. He made this book a 5 star, not a 4 star.

    It felt like yesterday when I picked up a little book called Dragon Wing. From their on the rest is history. The Death Gate Cycle is one of the best fantasy series ever! yes even comparing it to lord of the rings which I think the authors made some characters that are better than LOTR who can forget about Zifnab or the scary serpents. Theirs plenty of action in the last book it will grasp your attention till the end. When I was reading the series I felt like I was in the book and knew each character very well and how they felt. Like I said before one of the best fantasy series ever!

    I will now rate this as one of the greatest Fantasy series ever....ever! I feel that I now know Haplo and Alfred well. I am afraid that my words will not do justice for this series or this book. Only thing that kept me from rating the book as a 5 star....I was slightly dissappointed in the ending. (And the fact that it did end!) Pick up this series!

    This series keeps you hooked from page one of book one! The avid reader will be begging for more even by the end of the last book. No book collection would be complete without it!

    I've never read a more inspiring series where you find yourself in another world. When I finished the book and series I felt as if part of me was missing. I will miss the great and awe inspiring stories of Haplo.

    This book was truly a teriffic book. The excitment and action present on every page makes it impossible to put down. I finished the book in two days by reading close to ten hours a day.

    Though I loved the first six books of the series, I was highly disappointed in the seventh installment in The Death Gate Series. It had slipshod construction and organization; it seemed to have been hastily thrown together to form a convenient and expedient conclusion, thus sacrificing intelligent, realistic and consistent story lines and character development. A very disappointing and, might I add, disheartening conclusion to what could have been a fantasy classic.

    I had found this book in a friend's backpack at school. I saw it and had to know what it was. After he told me all about the book,I just new i had to read it. After some convincing I got to barrow the book,and I started to read it immediatly. I was hooked. The plot was very good,the characters where memorable,and the whole concept was perfect. I highly recommend this book to any and all fans of fantasy books,games,and video games.

    you know that when you're speechless and can't think after you've finished a book, that it was GOOD! I was extremely dissapointed after I finished it-the ending was unbelievable! I shall miss reading the adventures of Haplo and his crazy absent-minded cowardly friend the Sartan, Alfred. This book was unique, with a creative plot, likeable characters, action, and very well written.

    I have read the whole series and i love the whole thing and would suggest others to read it as well. In the end i even felt sorry for the Patryn Xar who wanted to do what would best help his people and was misguided in it. In the end you can't have a character you dislike...you feel sorry for them being misguided though. The whole series is well written and the characters can really be related to even though it is a sci-fi/fantasy. I love these books and would encourage others to read them. You can really get into them and your nose will be stuck in the book awaiting the finish. I could not put them down....i am reading them again.
