I've been reading (and re-reading) the Prism Pentad series for several years now. I think that whole story line of this book helps create an arch for the rest of the series. I just hope they make it into a movie someday.

This book is very well-written and free of a lot of the issues that generally come with authors in the fantasy genre.

In my own personal view, I didn't think the story was that novel or interesting. It's your basic Big Evil Bad Guy with Big Evil Plan is opposed by Group of Fairly Decent People climaxing in the Big Battle. The one thing I did like is the political facet, but not too much is made of that. The characters who have roles that operate at the political level rather quickly just get caught up in being "party members." It would have been more interesting to me to see how resistance could have continued at a political level -along with- the more traditional sword and sorcery stuff. Few books really do that (it's generally one or the other).

Also, you should know I really didn't know much about the Dark Sun world. If I really enjoyed the world before coming to this book, I might have appreciated the story more.

In sum, it's not a bad book, especially in a genre that is absolutely littered with bad books. I just didn't get very caught up in the story.

I read this series when I was a teenager and now mid thirties want to relieve this great adventure. Besides the LOTR trilogy and of course the Hobbit this adventure by denning is the most thrilling I have ever read. Only con to this version is I'm not sure the process of conversion from physical to digital but there are a lot of grammatical errors in this version which I bet greatly were not in paperback. Sometimes simple Things like "and" instead of "the" or "salira" instead of "sadira" but sometimes not simple things like "rain" instead of "ram" so by the end of the sentence your left thinking that makes no sense. All in all I absolutely love the story and characters, will buy the rest of the series and give it the max 5 well deserved stars

I've loved Troy Denning ever since he wrote my favorite Star Wars book: Star by Star (Star Wars: The New Jedi Order, Book 9). So when I found out about this series, The Prism Pentad, I quickly went about tracking down the first in the series, "The Verdant Passage".

I don't know anything about the "Dark Sun" universe, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the story. The characters are singular, memorable, and easily distinguished. I like Denning's writing style. His action scenes and set pieces are easy to picture and just enough is revealed about the world to be interesting. Can't wait to read the next four!

Mr. Denning has created a wonderful world for us to dig into in Dark Sun - and this is it's flagship novel. Here the plight of the people of Tyr (slaves, Veiled Alliance, gladiators) is told in wonderful detail, set in this world of ruinous magic and desert. What a great setting! The plot really keeps you going here - wondering what will happen to the protagonists, and about what the evil King Kalak is planning. It is a roller coaster of a ride! There are several memorable characters, and more than a few loose ends are left, but this is of course for the following four books in the series. Can't wait to read the next one!

Well I just finished the book and I have to admit I had fun with it. There were times when I felt the story dragged a bit but in the end it was a good read. However with that said I do need to point out that this is a Dark Sun book, if you're not a D&D fan or a Dark Sun fan you may not enjoy this book nearly as much. The story is strong though the characters are a bit weak. I don't mean that they are bad characters but sadly the author dosn't give us much insight into thier personal motives or their histories. We don't know their personal fears, dreams, asperations or well anything beyond the fact that they are on a mission and they will do what it takes to complete it. Agis is the main character for this book in my opinion and is the most flushed out character of them all but sadly he dosn't shine very bright because we only get minimal details of what's going on in his head at the time. The book reads like a movie and though thats not bad on a personal note I expect more from the characters in the books I read. I want to feel their humanity (or lack of it) not just see it.

So if you're a Dark Sun fan, or a fan of D&D and the books that go with it then this is deffenatly something to read. If you're just a plane fantasy fan then I assure you there are many other books to read that will give you a similar feel. I will say this though, the world of Athas is well painted in the book and the creatures that inhabit it are a nice break from your cookie cutter versions, Dwarves are bald and hate hair (in most other books they love their beards), elves are back ally thugs not your normal helpful and mystical types. So there is a lot of fun stuff in the book, I can only hope book 2 gives me more insight on how the characters feel, where they came from and where they want to go... thats the thing characters should want things, afterall if they are human (or human like) then they should have personal desires.

One of the best series from the early 90’s. The characters are interesting and Troy Dennings ability to describe Athas has yet to be matched. The action starts early and never stops. Great read.

For the time it was written, it was probably pretty fresh and interesting for a shared world fantasy novel.
Now it is just alright. The characters are 2 dimensional. Lacks the umph of Lord of the Rings or Dragonlance.
I've just discovered the Dark Sun world and books, and they're a blast. As with most D&D books, the writing isn't exactly Dickens, but it's still a great read and a nice break from Drizzt (no offense intended).
