    ...by Margeret Weis and Tracy Hickman? I've got the first book in the series and notice that there are several more. Are they worth the time?

    I'm halfway thru the second book. It's getting better. I almost couldn't finish the first one though. I was almost thru with it before the plot developed to a point where I felt like there was a plot. I think I'll enjoy the rest though now that it seems to be taking a direction.

    Man, I remember when those first came out.
    As a fan of their dragonlance work, I thought the dgc series was a let down.
    If you like fantasy, check out the icewindale trilogy, dark elf trilogy, and related books by R.A. Salvatore under the forgetten realms label.

    I've read all the "Drizzt" books. The story was great, the writing OK. After reading The Death Gate Cycle in its entirety I thought it was really good.
