Product Description

Product Description

Now the people know that the dragon minions of Takhisis, Queen of Dragons, have returned. The people of all nations prepare to fight to save their homes, their lives, and their freedom. But the races have long been divided by hatred and prejudice. Elven warriors and human knights fight among themselves. It seems the battle has been lost before it begins.

The companions are separated, torn apart by war. A full season will pass before they meet again--if they meet again. As the darkness deepens, a disgraced knight, a pampered elfmaiden, and a rattle-brained kender stand alone in the pale winter sunlight.

Synopsis

When dragons invade the land, a small band of heroes, including a knight, barbarian, dwarf, and half-elf, begin the search for the magical Dragon Orb and Dragonlance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Weis and Hickman score once again! 6 Sep 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is just as well written as the first book, and never has a sequel been written as well as the first since J.R.R. Tolkien's THE HOBBIT. Dragonlance's most popular adventurers continue in their journey, this time in search of the dragon orbs, and the long forgotten dragonlances in which to destroy the evil dragons with of course. It makes you more familiar with Laurana, Gilthanas, and a handful of new characters, and I do suggest a box of tissues for the conclusion of the novel you're going to need them. I highly recomend this book to lovers of fantasynovels. To the Ignorant: Nobody thinks this is better than Tolkien, it's merely something to read besides the king of all fantasy's novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't know what everyone's complaining about 21 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I don't know why everyone seems to think this is the worst of the Chronicles Trilogy. I always thought it was the best, since I first read it over 10 years ago. It has some of the best scenes of the whole series- Tas and Fizban at Mt. Nevermind, the Whitestone Council Meeting (with Tas at his best), and a climactic and heartbreaking ending. And throughout it, Laurana really shines.

this book is a shining glory to what good writing can be. the book was amazing. I will first admit that i am not an adult so i cannot vouch for them but i will say that this book allowed for an almost inhuman amount of story telling and character scope. I have enjoyed the DL series for a good amount of time and i have only good words for this book, first of all those considering to buy this book do not even think twice you will not be dissapointed and i emphasize NO MATTER WHAT YOUR AGE. thank you

Yet another very thought provoking book, very excellent series, and could be a great trilogy of films to rival LOTR.

4.0 out of 5 stars This was a great book of fantasy and romance. 20 Sep 1997
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thought that this book was great! The second book of the Dragonlance Chronicles opens with Elistan presenting the Hammer of Kharas to the dwarwish King Hornfel. Then the Dragonlance adventurers journey to the city of Tarsis the Beautiful, hoping to book passage to a safer land for the refugees from Pax Tharkas that were rescued in the first book, but they learn that Tarsis has been landlocked by the Great Cataclysm. There, they discover a library which tells of ancient artifacts that can defeat the dragons that plague Krynn. Before they can search for the artifacts, however, dragons attack and destoy Tarsis. During the battle the friends are separated into two groups, and each group then searches independently for the powerful artifacts. This book features a surprising ending with awkward results for the heroes. This book is great!

Format:Mass Market Paperback
DoWN delves deeper into the darkness threatening to conquer Krynn; our heroes face horrors beyond belief, the forces of evil gain in power, and disturbing revelations threaten to tear the Companions apart. Weiss and Hickman continue masterfully to add depth and dimension to the characters and the fantastic world of Krynn.
The beauty of the Dragonlance saga is that it's not just another "dudes with big swords fight a lot of ugly monsters" D&D rip-off - the war of the lance trilogies (Chronicles & Legends) are moving tales about the strength of the human spirit (or elven/dwarven/kender, etc.) set into an action-packed sword and sorcery setting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return to the land of Krynn! 15 Feb 1997
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The friends, now armed with the help of a goddess, once again try to help the world of Krynn. Now parted, the two groups search for the DragonLance, and the Dragon Orb. One group travels to the haunted forest of the ancient elven homeland, Silvanesti, and battle the evil nightmares of the tortured King, Lorac. While the other group travels to the Ice Wall and rescue a Dragon Orb and a shattered lance. As you read, you will travel with the groups through the world of Krynn, and will feel the loss of the great Knight of Solamnia, Sturm Brightblade as he sacrifices his life, that others may live. And feel the joy of the plains-people, Riverwind and Goldmoon's marriage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the series 4 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Just like Star Wars, the middle "episode" comes out the best...
It's been a while since I read these books the last time (a couple years, I've read them 5-6 times total) but this was my favorite. The heroes from DoAT are split up, both on separate agendas, and the War of the Lance is heating up.
Anyone who says this book lacks action must not have been reading the last, say, half of it, especially the battle at the High Clerist's Tower.
all in all, the Dragonlance Chronicles and Legends were 2 of TSR's best series EVER, and this book is one of the best of those elite few...
