  • As I've said previously, this series is one of my all time favorites from the time I first read it in the 1980's, and this book IS my favorite. This review is for the entire series.What draws me to this series?- Characters: each of the characters has a unique personality and is interesting, with a good background that explains motivations.- Plot: For the series, each book is different and unique with story lines that flow and are unpredictable.- The author is willing to kill off major characters [...]


  • What made this series different is that it was the anti-high fantasy. In the very first book of the series, seven role-playing college students are transported to the world of their game as their alter egos. Those who survive stay and bring technology--and a crusade against slavery to their new home. I do often love sword and sorcery but you know what? The historical truth is that medieval societies suck. So hell yeah, I did adore the idea of those college kids from contemporary America messing [...]


  • As a genre, Fantasy's greatest strength is its ability to give you a different world by which you can compare to the real one. How the characters react to their world is good food for thought to reflect on how we react in our own.What's neat about this series is that the main characters are from our world. They are people, college students specifically, living in a fantasy world as fantasy characters. This kind of detracts from the allure of pure fantasy, of completely escaping the real world, b [...]


  • This is a series I loved as a kid and only recently rediscovered. Essentialy geek porn, it's about a group of college kids playing d&d who get sucked into the fantasy world for real. It's definitely pulpy (it's unbelievable how much happens in 4 not particularly long books) but purposefully (in a sometimes over obvious late 70s-80s sense) takes on the problems with some of the pulp tropes, most of all the women's roles in might dominated societies and fantasy fiction. It took a little while [...]


  • I hated the ending of this book. I know the author was systematically violating a list of "things not to do while writing a series," but here he violated one I really happen to agree with.So anyway I waited in tense anticipation for him to write the next book, because I knew he was going to fix it (the title was so promising). But no he let it stand.


  • I know that some people are a little upset with the ending of this book but in my opinion (which I still have after reading this series multiple times), it provides a good transition to the rest of the series (which is not as good as the earlier books) and seems a realistic outcome of an epic long spanning battle between two powerful forces fighting over an important cause.


  • Volume 4 of a series that went on too long and lost its way. The author realizes this and tries to spice things up by putting the main characters in peril, which works to slow down the decline but not reverse it.


  • The Heir Apparent (Guardians of the Flame, #4)Rosenberg, Joeldungeons and dragons at its best has been fleshed out in heroic adventures of some avid game fans who find themselves in the world of their games.






  • Fantastic fantasy series. Modern day gamers get transported and inhabit the bodies of their fantasy characters. Excellent storyline. Highly recommended




  • Definitely not my favorite book in the series. For most of it, it did not really seem to go anywhere. Although I did enjoy the ending which of course sets up the next book in the series.


  • The first three-quarters of this book seemed very slow. Things considerably pick up in the last several chapters, but it's almost too little too late.
