4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By J.Yasimoto on 17 Jan. 2008
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Hmmm.... this is a difficult one to review. The best Dragonlance books remain the Weis/Hickman core novels; Chronicles, Legends, Second Generation, Summer Flame, and War of Souls. They are all warm, fun, and fiendishly readable. But whereas Lost Chronicles 1: Dragons of Dwarven Depths slotted neatly into the core story between Autumn Twilight and Winter Nights (albeit with a drop in pace), the Highlord Skies book is more of a supplementary novel (to Winter Nights). The book is almost an irrelevance. Which is a shame because it retains all that is good about the Weis/Hickman writing partnership. I feel the Lost Chronicles trilogy could have made three good novellas (see Second Generation for how well this can work). But of course that's less money for Wizards of the Coast. In summary, if you enjoyed the Soulforge/Brothers in Arms prequels and Dragons of Dwarven Depths, you will like this book. But if you found them a bit of a yawn, then this book won't be an improvement.

Format: Hardcover
I had higher hopes for this second volume of The Lost Chronicles trilogy than I did for its predecessor, Dragons of the Dwarven Depths. Indeed, the plotlines which would be explored in Dragons of the Highlord Skies appeared much more interesting than the search for the Hammer of Kharas.

Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman had the opportunity to expound on the storyline which will later lead Laurana to the position of the Golden General. They also had a chance to flesh out the relationship between Kitiara and Lord Soth, and show us how it all began in Dargaard Keep. Finally, the authors would also be granted the opportunity to elaborate on the Companions' trek to Icereach in search of the dragon orb.

As was the case with the War of Souls trilogy, The Lost Chronicles fail to recapture the magic of the Dragonlance Chronicles and Legends. Even though it's a delight to get reacquainted with the Companions, at times it feels as though Weis and Hickman are simply going through the motions. Insofar as I can tell, it doesn't feel as if their hearts are into this project. . .

Let's not forget that Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman's Dragonlance novels have been translated into twenty languages and have sold more than twenty million copies worldwide. And yet, much like fellow bestselling authors Raymond E. Feist, David Eddings and Terry Brooks, their latest works are clearly uninspired compared to their past collaborations. Dragons of the Highlord Skies lacks the depth and the originality that allowed them to capture the hearts and imagination of a whole generation of fantasy readers.

Sadly, Lord Soth, who could probably have kickstarted this book, only appears in about 10 pages or so. Once again, there's is an inordinate amount of "filler" in this one.

I was reintroduced to Dragonlance after my daughter asked me if I had any books that she could read, I hadn't been in the world of Krynn since I was a teenager and hold fond memories of the companions Tanis, Flint, Strum, Caramon. Rastilin and Tas battling the Dark Queen, so imagine my delight when I discovered that Weiss and Hickman had wrote a new trilogy in the Lost Chronicles.
Dragons of the Highlord Skies promised to deliver on earlier adventures hinted at in Dragons of Winter Night and I thought I would finally discover the tale of Flint, Strum, Tas and Laurana's quest for the dragon orb at Ice wall castle.
Though the story in itself was compelling - the roundabout way in which we get to the point of the tale is long,laborious and unnecessary. Being a writer myself I can understand how the authors use point A to get to point B and so on, but poor editing and repeating of what had already been stated earlier in the novel drags heavily on the attention. (Had the publishers had even bothered to edit this at all?) This meant that the novel was hard going and unnecessary of the 500+ pages. The whole story could have been condensed down to 300 - 400 pages like in the original chronicles. Unfortunately this created a story that did not have the same flow of it's predecessors, which is a shame because the potential was great in rounding off the chronicles on a high note. The plus point is that I now know what happened at Icereach and how Kitiara came to be with dread Lord Soth.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Martin Belcher VINE VOICE on 15 Aug. 2007
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed volume one of these lost chronicles (Dragons of the Dwarven Depths), so I was looking forward to reading this second volume. It covers a lost plot line from the original Dragonlance Chronicles covering the dragon orb in Icereach, and events in Tarsis with an emphasis on Kitiara Uth Matar and her relationship with her magnificent blue dragon Skie and Lord Ariakas.

Please don't get me wrong, I throughly enjoyed this book, but it did leave me wanting a bit more and I felt some areas were rushed, especially the rescue of the dragon orb from the cavern where Highlord Theal-Fas had secured it with the protection of a supposed sentinel of incredible strength and fear. This seemed to disolve away within a short chapter and I felt could have been played a bit better.

Overall this is a good Dragonlance novel and a brilliant 'supplement' to the original Chronicles and I definitely recommend it, but I am hoping the next volume due out in 2008 (Hourglass Mage) is much better and as Raistlin is my favourite character, I can't wait to read it!
