I love this series and continue to re-read them all of the time. Just bought the ebooks. The ebooks are good but the entire series is full of spelling mistakes, misplaced spaces, and what appears to be OCR errors. The entire series of ebooks should be re-proof read and re-released. But even with the errors, they are still good reads.

To me, the series began to suffer at this point.

Although the pace picks up in the latter half of Labyrinth, there is no disguising the languishing pace of the first half and the absence of any noteworthy scenes. Labyrinth is setting the stage for the final conflict, drawing together a fellowship, with the usual traitor within, and actually creates some worthy tension as a result. Distracting from that is Fizban, a plot mechanic so absurd that it immediately dissolves any engagement with the story. Why the James Bond gags? It's high fantasy, not comedy and it's strikingly out of place. The final stage is worth fighting to though and at that point the lengthy build-up does pay dividends and ensures that readers will be yearning for resolution in the final chapter to follow.

A common threat creates an uneasy truce. Peace has come to Arianus, but for Haplo the fight continues. His only hope lies in convincing Lord Xar of the truth, and stopping him. For Lord Xar has found a new ambition, the Seventh Gate. Now Haplo must contend with Xar’s messenger. Unwilling to kill, Haplo must convince a fellow Patryn to join him in open rebellion. At first the story relies on a series of vignettes to establish where each character is, gradually bringing them together, uniting the diverse threads into two parallel plots. Most of the story focuses on self-contained subplots, relying on frequent changes of perspective to conceal the sluggish pace of the main plot. Internal conflicts dominate, bringing characters together in pairs for brief scenes, revealing a small amount of information about each character, then breaking them apart, sending each character off to collide with another character, starting a fresh scene. Tensions slowly build towards climactic group discussions, which make strong use of each character’s distinct voice before scattering the group once more. Touching moments bring one storyline to a predictable conclusion, while the other ends on a cliffhanger, paving the way for the final installment. +Strong Characters +Strong Dialogue *Strong but Fragmented Plot *Frequently Changing Perspectives -Slow 3.5/5
