Tered on high school ages fairly simple with some complexities Simple humor that sometimes got a chuckle out of me Overall this series did very well Main reasons I can see for this is 1 DRAGON DUNGEON and TSR fanbase 2 a superb design of the setting and History by the game creators 3 lots of surprises and twists 4 a well encompassed adventuring group uite a challenge for any writer and I believe these two were just starting out in which there were at least a few who any reader would love 5 big epic scale with wonder and magic 6 focused marketing by TSR in other words they did the marketing not some other publisher who wouldn t have been as passionateGRADE REASON Mostly shown above But to reiterate the story did a very good to great job on its History pacing surprises and narrative structure Story was lacking in character and dialogue as well as with the emotional feeling of the antagonists so that brought it down to a B grade at the cusp Overall I d recommend this book but warn that it s written at a sophomoric level Read this trilogy when I was 13 and really enjoyed it at the time not as much as Stephen Donaldson or Terry Brooks or even Weis Hickman s other series The Rose of the Prophet and The Darksword Trilogy Having said that I liked it a lot than Eddings s series The Dragonlance Chronicles suit those after a Tolkienesue world but one accessible like Terry Brooks I d recommend the trilogy for fantasy lovers and D D fans and also oung adult readers I m glad that the trilogy had me ripping through the pages as a Einführung in die deutsche Sprache der Wissenschaften young teenager it added to my love of readingWould I enjoy it now as an adult Well no but I m not the target audience any longer But I am revelling in the adult historical fantasy euivalents by contemporary writers such as George RR Martin and Joe Abercrombie and Dragonlance certainly played an influential role in leading me later on in life to these works and for that I m eternally grateful I tried reading these once when I wasounger and never finished them They show up on lists of great fantasy series all the time though so I tried again I made it through them this time but barely they are really not goodThe writers use as their framework the alignment concept from the Dungeons and Dragons manual the tic tac toe grid of lawful neutral chaotic and good neutral evil Each character inhabits one of the boxes in that grid and that is the extent of their characterization Each character is also one of that manual s races and classes there s a big dumb neutral good fighter and a noble lawful good paladin and a shady chaotic neutral mage and so on They never move from those boxes or grow as characters The plot is evil power wants to take over the world and only a small group of adventurers can stop them paint by numbers fantasyIt s just a Dungeons and Dragons campaign written down I d read a plot point and think Oh that character must ve rolled a nineteen on their saving throw against magic I suppose if The Defense (Eddie Flynn you really like tabletop gaming this is right upour alley But it is not well written and all it really has going for it is the interplay and conflict between the various cookie cutter characters It s not meant for anyone but true believers I read this book technically three books when I was about 12 Hai nhà years old It was the first 1000 page book I ever read and I adored it I wept when one of the characters died I gasped when a plot twist was revealed I was asou may guess the target audience I don t know how well the book would stand up today It is certainly better than a lot of the fantasy books I ve read Raistlin is a wonderful character The growth of the mage over the three books was terrific You were watching him gain and power but ou weren t too sure if that was a good thing or not Very clever Most of the characters. This splendid collector's edition is a must for the millions of readers who fell in love with the fantasy world of Krynn.

I have to give these five stars because my love of fantasy stems from my stumbling onto these and reading them as a teenager No mean feat given I grew up in a small town in Malaysia I have read and reread these books many many times for comfort for memory s sake for any number of reasons I have not read them in recent Falling Through Clouds years and I have to confess that I am loathe to do so becauseou can never go back but they deserve 5 stars just for the warm memories I have of them and how they made me feel as I read themI remember even after all these The Art of Acquiring years Tanis the hero Cameron the warrior Tasslehoff kender plucky but good for comic relief Flint dour dwarf Sturm This review isn t for the special edition which I didn t know existed per se it s just a convenient way to review all 3 of the books in this series this marvelous series which I read when I was probably 15 or 16 and which is a really wonderful piece of fantasy storytelling Ifou like that sort of thing I can t recommend Margret Weiss and Tracy Hickman s work enough they re brilliant storytellers and they invest the Dragonlance fantasy world with a darkness wit and gravity that s eual to the best of fantasy writing anywhere I can t really understate the effect this series along with the Dragonlance Legends trilogy of course had on my teenaged imaginationThere s one note I should make about the Dragonlance books A while back I was discussing the series with two of my friends I consider these two friends to be two of the most well read humans on the planet they re two of the biggest literary nerds I have ever known or could imagine knowing The three of us agreed without any trace of irony that Raistalin from this Dragonlance series is one of the best characters in literatureI ll let that sink in for a momentWe re talking about a short list that probably includes Stephen Dedalus Hamlet Patrick Bateman and Clarrisa Dalloway And now Raistalin a dark wizard who s pupils have turned into hourglasses because the entropic nature of the universe has been revealed to him and he sees everything in a state of constant decay death Can I get an amen Can I get a hallelujah Thank ou Popsugar 2015 Reading ChallengeA TrilogyI first read this series when I was just around 10 ears old This was just after I had finished Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit In my mind these works and Dragonlance included will always be the epitome of classical fantasy No matter how many times I read this I ll always tear up or laugh at certain things This is as I see it as good as fantasy gets This review was written in the late nineties just for myself and it was buried in amongst my things until today when I uncovered the journal it was written in I have transcribed it verbatim from all those ears ago although suare brackets indicate some additional information for the sake of readability It is one of my lost reviewsAn epic fantasy of Tolkien like scope Sounds good for a novel s back cover doesn t it But it is almost true with the Dragonlance Chronicles Almost The key to that almost is the characters cause there s no way it could be the prose I ll begin with the character I hate Tanis Half Elven He is the weakest link in the novel et he s the novel s chief protagonist His apparent depth comes from his duality and its manifestation in his love for Kitiara and Laurana but who cares The other characters are much much better Laurana Flint Gilthanis Alhana Tika Fizban Tasslehoff Caramon and Raistlin are all superior to the Chronicles hero And the last two are even better in their own series But the character who is the true Hero of the Lance is Sturm Brightblade He is the best character that Weis Hickman created because his tale is complete He is complex without being clich he loves his honour his destiny and Alahana and More than three million readers have witnessed the return of the dragonsAnd now the books that began the best selling 'd.
