This is the second book in the Dragonlance: Linsha Trilogy. In the first book in this trilogy we were introduced to a lot of story set up and character building.
Yet, this novel falls short of the preceding novel. I'm not really sure if I can put into words the 'why' behind that. It's not a bad book by any means, but for me Herbert set the bar fairly high and this book didn't follow through.
With that said, Iw ould still recommend this book to Dragonlance fans as it certainly progresses the story after the War of Souls.
