The first book of the Death Gate Cycle. My husband likes these authors but wasn't a huge fan of this book, so I'm releasing it.

Registered in Centreville, Virginia, USA.

Edit 23 December 2013: Finally read another copy of this. These are my thoughts:

It took me an incredibly long time to get through this book. It starts with some bits about Hugh the Hand, an assassin saved from execution with an assignment to kill the young prince. Then there's some stuff about revolutionary dwarves, who find a guy and his dog, recently escaped from the Labyrinth. And somehow elves are involved, and an evil wizard, and possibly some people more powerful than the evil wizard. The stories eventually intertwine, but I had difficulty figuring out what happened to whom. Reading the wikipedia summary confirmed that I hadn't actually missed anything plotwise, but I think the main problem was that there were a lot of races and I had trouble keeping track of their individual politics and histories. The fact that several of them call each other by differing names (Dwarves vs. Gegs, for example) didn't help either. The only reason I pushed my way through to the end is because I was told that this first book is by far the worst in the series, and once you've gotten past it (and the requisite backstory), the rest of the series is excellent. Let's hope so.

Found the book on a picnic bench alongside the Bull Run - Occoquon Trail (aka, 'the blue trail') while on a morning run. It was between Rt 28 and Old Centreville Rd at approx. the 16 mile marker on the trail. I've already read it and plan to take it with me to Ireland or send it with my brother to Germany or Italy.

CAUGHT IN CENTREVILLE VA USA
