5.0 out of 5 stars outstanding 1 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The DragonLance saga was My absolute favourite reading experience. It took me about a few weeks to finish the chronicles, and then came along the day of tempest which expanded upon that, it took me less than a week to plough through this as I was unable to put it down. It's great! The Chronicles were wonderful, but TDoT was one of the most absolutely wonderful outstanding fantasy books I've ever read. A lot of people would see it as a continuation of something that could never truly end. Jean Rabe wrote this book that truly expands on the son's of the main character's, it was beautifully written with some deep symbolism that can be connected directly back with our world, and therefore it was something most fantasy books aren't, there was more to the story than just fighting and killing, it made some really good statements about what is wrong with all worlds, not just Krynn. Anyone who didn't like this book is obviously more interested in the bash 'em smash 'em side of fantasy and not the deeper, more symbolic and poetic parts. This was the best and most outstanding piece of fantasy literature I've read lately and is truly worth it's price.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Day of the Tempest 21 Jun 2002
By D. Pachal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Jean Rabe did a masterful job with these books. Not only are they fun any interesting to read, but they don't have many chapters were nothing is happening. The action and adventure is pretty much non-stop. Rabe had a difficult job diving into this new world, after many Dragonlance readers (including myself) were still distraught over the emotional Dragons of Summer Flame. Jean did a great job with this book, as well as the rest of the series.
The Day of the Tempest keeps following the heros of the heart as they search for something to help rid Krynn of the evil overlords. The Dragon Overlords are building their armies and the knowledge of spawn is being passed between them. The heros must band together in search of magical artifacts that will help them gain the upperhand. This book really doesn't resolve much. It is basically centered on the companions searching for these magical artifacts.
All in all, this book is a great read. Jean Rabe has done an amazing job creating a world after the destruction that was caused in Dragons of Summer Flame. Of course there are a few problems and inconsistencies in this book, but it is still worth the read. This trilogy is a definate must read. Not only does it keep you pretty much hooked the entire way through, but it is a great backdrop of knowledge before reading the War of Souls trilogy by Wies and Hickman.

2.0 out of 5 stars A poor attempt at a Dragonlance book 28 Sep 2002
By jax - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was a little better than the first in the series. However, it was awful. Its too far fetched even for a fantasy, and especially for trying to be a Dragonlance fantasy. I dont see how Palin can teleport himself or others so easily when his uncle Rastlin was the greatist sorcerer of all time and it nearly killed him when he did it.... that is so lame. Palin seems to be this super powerful mage even though he lost his magic. Also, they keep reffering to the lance Rig carries as "Sturm's Lance" and we all know Sturm never used a lance, he used his fathers sword and NEVER learned to use a lance (read chronicles vol. 2, Jean Rabe). These errors and other make this book hard to read.
I would not reccomend this book to those who just want a fantasy adventure to read, but us die-hard dragonlancers have to read it because it is part of the overall series of books in the Dragonlance timeline, which is sad.

2.0 out of 5 stars New point of view, not one to follow 19 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The dragons are portrayed better than the heroes. I can get behind Malystryx, destroy things. not much else about it. Khellendros is a little more complex, not much though, and I think the heroesare pitiful. They have no real backround, and the backround they give is always contridicting the ones revealed. This book shows no comparrison, what so ever to other dragonlance novels, like The Legend Of Huma (5 Stars). The best part of the novel was the dragons but I cant even say they were too well thought up or portrayed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Still awful. 4 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The characters are still two-dimensional, the plot is still go-to-sleep material, and the Great Dragons still seem as dumb as ever. One would wonder how they ever got beyond hatchlings with intelligence levels like that. Rabe just doesn't hit it at all. There's no sense of tragedy or loss, and the heroes don't really seem to have a place in the world. Rabe seems to concentrate on the 'Great Cosmic Struggle' rather than what motivates the characters who're making the story. There's also too much focus on the Evil characters (the dragons). Entire sections of the plot, which could have been artfully hidden and hinted at until finally being revealed, are thrown at the reader from the outset, and all that's left to see is how the heroes are going to thwart their foes. Yawn.

2.0 out of 5 stars Garbage. 14 Dec 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Very, very disappointing. Admittedly, I hadn't expected much after the first book. But in this volume the characters are poor, the story weak and the style lacking. Jean Rabe abuses Margaret Weis' and Tracy Hickman's once near-perfect characters to the point where Palin, Goldmoon and Gilthanas are changed beyond recognition. There is no flow to events, everything is told matter-of-factedly without and time spent on those little details that are so crucial. Emotion is lacking and all the characters' personalities are somehow the same. Factor in an unrealistic and unconvincing plot and this ends up a very disappointing Dragonlance novel. Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman COME BACK!
