You will be hard pressed to find a more original tale of fantasy.
That was back in 1984, the genre was already one big cliché.
It is amazing that this remarkable series still stands out as an original piece of work. The author keeps all the elements of fantasy but uses them in such a new way that you will have a hard time putting this book down! The more you read, the more original it gets!
This is the correct order of the books:
' The River of Dancing Gods, Del Rey, 1984 (ISBN 0-345-30892-1) ' Demons of the Dancing Gods, Del Rey, 1984 (ISBN 0-345-30893-X) ' Vengeance of the Dancing Gods, Del Rey, July, 1985 (ISBN 0-345-31549-9) ' Songs of the Dancing Gods, Del Rey, August, 1990 (ISBN 0-345-34799-4) ' Horrors of the Dancing Gods, 1994 (ISBN 0-345-37692-7)
You will not regret picking this up, especially if you are about to drop the genre because you just can't stand reading the same stories over and over.
