On steamy Pryan, never-ending sunlight and plentiful rain have created a jungle so vast that humans and elves dwell high in the trees and only dwarves live anywhere near the ground. From the treetops the aristocratic elves sell weapons to the other races, whose incessant warfare sends a steady steam of profits and essential resources skyward. Now, generations of dissent and race hatred will not heal -- not even under the threat of annihilation at the hands of legendary Titans. Armed with little more than their wits and prophecy, an elf, a human, and a dwarf must unite to try to save the world from destruction. From the Paperback edition.… (mere)

This is the second book in the complete Death Gate Cycle. It's a bit thin on plot but the characters are entertaining and Dog makes a reappearance. The world building is original and fascinating. While this book is a complete story it doesn't really hold up without the rest of the series. ( )

2nd in the series. Most notably marked by the unwelcome introduction of "Fizban" from Dragonlance, who's presence is never explained, but appears to still be a god that Haplo doesn't believe in. None fo the races of these worlds have a higher power, all the religious references are to the Sartan at the time of the Sundering.

Haplo visits the world of fire - four suns inside a large sphere, with the races living in dense jungle on the internal surface. It's not at all clear why this is the world of fire, as there isn't that much heat around, just enough for verdant life. Our lesser races are predominantly elven this time, but we don't get much chance to find out about their culture because the Tytans are coming. It appears the Sartan created some powerful servants who's lost their way, and are now destroying everything in their path. (Why they'd turn destructive is never explained). Haplo turns up just in time to save a few in the process of learning about the world and how it's been set up - and what the Sartan had intended it to do. The dog does little but keep him company. Fizban has inserted himself into the elven city and doesn't need to nudge Haplo much to set things going in the right direction.

Much the same as the previous one already - we don't really care about the various Mensch who are again fighting between themselves. Haplo has a few more reminiscences from his time in the Labyrinth, including their bleak but still touching wedding ceremony. ( )

Haplo on another world, no Alfred, but some funnymysterious wizard named Zifnab. Find out there are greater powers than the Patryn and Sartan. ( )

An enemy no one can stop. A question no one can answer.

Pryan, world of fire, is a lush jungle so dense that entire lakes rest on layers of foliage. Humans build on vast planes of moss, elves dwell in trees, and dwarves live close to ground. The story follows a family of elvish merchants, who sell magical weapons to humans, who in turn use them on each other.

Paithan, a young elf, heads out on another delivery, but when he arrives he learns the weapons are actually meant for the dwarves, and he is expected to come along. Meanwhile Haplo has come through Death’s Gate to explore the second world, but instead he arrives just in time to see it fall, as legends return, full of wrath.

The story counter balances the grim plot with many light hearted subplots, reaffirming the belief that while humor may not be the best medicine, it’s certainly a decent salve.

As a whole Elven Star is a slow read; full of looming threats and tense pauses, as characters struggle to think of some way to survive. Haplo is once again shoehorned in, though this time he slowly takes over the story, before bringing it to a half-hearted conclusion, with many questions left for future installments to answer.
