    1. Death Mark is the third stand-alone novel in the recent relaunch of the Dark Sun series of novels based on the Dungeons and Dragons universe of Dark Sun. This is Robert J.

Death Mark was released December 2011 and was published by Wizards of the Coast LLC.Tyr has fallen in revolution and a new Sorcerer-King has claimed Tyr's throne. After freeing the city's slaves and clos [...]

    2. This was a physically tough book to read. The sentence structure lacked flow and more significantly the font was very small, making it a tiring read.The story was almost 2 different stories. The first 2/3 of the book was a nicely tangled story about merchant wars and was very interesting and captivating. The last 1/3 of the story was almost like the author got tired and asked how can I end this fast. The answer of course is ZOMBIES controlled by a young enchantress that needs to be more powerful [...]

    3. An enjoyable book, and a vast improvement over City Under the Sand. The action scenes were well written, though the plot seemed unnecessarily convoluted at times, especially at the start. Halfway through, though, I was pulled in and finished the book in one sitting. While I don't believe it stands up to the Prism Pentad (though what could, honestly?), I definitely see a positive upswing in the new Dark Sun novels starting here.

    4. Not bad. Engaging and well written. I found the character description to be sparse and the pacing was a bit off till half way through the book. I'd recommend it to a fan of the Dark Sun game world but to no one else.

    5. I love the Dark Sun world. This was a good book, but no real suprises anywhere. I found the ending confusing at times though jumping from one character to another but I understand because there were so many and alot of action to cover.

    6. Not as good as earlier ones I have read. It did tie into the Prism Pentad that started the Dark Sun series of books. I did enjoy it.

    7. Never finished it. Too many other better sounding and written books to grab my attention. It's not bad, but I have outgrown this genre.
