Book Description

The people of Krynn have known war in past ages. Some are still alive who remember the triumph of good at the conclusion of the War of the Lance. Still more remember the devastation of the Chaos War, which ended the Fourth Age of the world.

But now a new war is about to begin, more terrible than any have known. This war is one for the very heart and soul of the world itself.

    Dragonlance if finally back! After the magic was lost in Dragons of Summer flame, I thought Krynn had become a dull world, I was curious about what Weiss-Hickman could do about it, and the result is most impresive, I just couldn't put the book down, I won't include any spoilers here, but I'll say that Mina is a most curious, interesting, and misterious character, this and the mistery of what happens to Goldmoon makes this book a must have for Dragonlance lovers (of course, our friend Tass plays a big part in everything!). Now I can't wait to read the next book to find out who's the new God (I've my own guess), what happens to Goldmoon, and if Lord Dalamar finally makes a come back.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Better than most fantasy books out there today 16 Jan. 2006
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    I just finished this book and felt the need to share my experiences with it. Strengths of this book are that, well it is dragonlance! We are given some new memorable characters, a very effective post apocalyptic feeling and we get to countinue the story of what is in my opinion the greatest series of books there is. The only negative point I can muster is that sometimes you feel the characters are a bit, well, LONELY in it. Each chapter details a few peoples exploits and then the next chapter usually shifts to another group or place. The only problem is each group or place usually only had a few of the charcters in at a time. This is not like chronicles where you had the whole gang fighting monsters and dragons and bouncing conversation off each other. That being said, it is also a plus because it adds to the whole feeling of the book that krynn has indeed changed a lot.
    In conclusion, if your thinking of buying this book, go right ahead. You may find it is slighly better OR slightly worse than chronicles and legends, but you will be very hard pressed to make your mind up Im just off to start the next volume in this trilogy now after being left with quite a epic cliffhanger, and Im sure I will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed this book, plus at 600 odd pages long, you sure are getting your moneys worth.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A fanatastic return to the Dragonlance world! 29 May 2000
    Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
    I wasn't a big fan of Dragons of Summer Flame. I felt, like a lot of others, that it destroyed everything that made Krynn special, almost flippantly killing of key characters, and just as carelessly resurrecting others. So I didn't hold out much hope for Dragons of a Fallen Sun. To my suprise, I loved it! Weis and Hickman have turned Krynn into a dark, depressing post-apocolyptic world, with desperate charcters bereft of gods. Consequentely all the characters are hundreds of times more interesting, and the intensity of the novel is turned up full. Even the unexpected resurrection of yet another of the heroes of the lance didn't put me off - it's done in a more sensible way, and it's Tas, so who can argue about that, eh? All in all, a fantastic return to Krynn that re-made me into a fan!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Dragons of a Fallen Sun 20 Aug. 2002
    By Jim
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    Dragons of a Fallen Sun is a book that's hard to compare to. It has a serious atmosphere, but there is comic relief here and there. There's one big surprise near the beginning that I think all readers are caught off guard for. In other places, the peoples' sorrow is so bad (but so well written), that you actually want to be there to try to make them feel better. You do have to recall things from Summer Flame, or you get confused by certain statements. Weis and Hickman have something serious going, and I can't wait to see what happens next. The only disapointment is that the story ends with a huge cliffhanger. You get so into the story that you just want it to keep going, but it just kind of, stops. All in all, the book Dragons of a Fallen Sun is truly worth adding to your collection.
    Recomend: The Price of Immortality,its a great read

    5.0 out of 5 stars Can't put it down 11 May 2001
    By A Customer
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    This book is excellent. I couldn't put it down. Weis and Hickman do not disappoint. After a disappointing end to dragons of a summer flame I thought this book would be nothing and the they come up with something twice as brilliant. They change the characters often to keep you interested. The only trouble is that it has very long chapters.
    Marvellous.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A dubious old hand suitably impressed. 30 Jan. 2003
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    Well what can i say? The 'wars of lance' books completly captured and held me enthralled in my younger days. A world of genius design, harmonious characterisation, and glittering vividness! To re-create that would need you to be of the same fleeting optimistic age at which those grand novels impacted on me.
    Could Weis and Hickman produce anything near as much quality as was shrouded in those tumultuous tales? The answer is nearly.
    To say that this impressed upon me as strongly as the first novels would be a lie.But, and it is a rather large BUT.... this is a fine fine piece of fantasy storytelling. Whether you have no knowledge of the previous novels, or like me, hold them as imaginative flirts that dazzled and engrossed, the new books have the same edge. They are entrapping and enchanting, throwing you from one page to the next,the cover of mine does now bear finger print impressions from where my joints( that bones kids honest) failed to allow me to relieve from my grasp of the text.
    For those of you who have read DL before but have never picked up another one since the first generation on the premise of not wanting to despoil the art, worry not things have changed ....yes but please try to put yours fears aside, if the next two books are anything like this one there is another generation of heroes and villians , plots and subterfuge waiting to surprise all lovers of good fantasy.
