5.0 out of 5 stars The Rastlin Chronicles 15 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback
This is a great book, I was not sure if I would like it as much as the time if the twins series and dragon lance chronicles but it has answered a lot of questions I had about how the group came about and what made Rastlin that way. Very well written it keeps you engaged all the way to the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two Solid Tales Better on Character Than Plot 22 May 2010
By Kevin M. Derby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
With the Dragonlance novels continuing to be put in omnibus collections, "The Raistlin Chronicles" gathers "The Soulforge" and "Brothers in Arms" by Margaret Weis and Don Perrin in a single collection. The works cover the youth of Raistlin Majere, the antihero at the heart of the Dragonlance Chronicles and Legends collections. Fans of these books will have nothing to worry about-Weiss and Perrin do little to damage the stories and characters that Weis and Tracy Hickman fleshed out in those works. But if these prequels do no harm to the series, they do not do much good either. Weis is excellent with nurturing characters but she is not as strong when it comes to crafting a plot-"Brothers in Arms" especially drags and the end is anti-climatic. Raistlin is the main character with his twin brother Caramon (who really could have been better development in these books) and sister Kitiara (who is fleshed out quite well) in supporting roles. Other "heroes of the lance" appear in "The Soulforge" to a lesser extent but the only one of them who really emerges well is Flint Fireforge. Despite the plot dragging in "Brothers in Arms," this is a fun return to Raistlin and the world of Krynn. I would not recommend this work to readers unfamiliar with the Dragonlance books-it really serves better as a coda after Chronicles and Legends than as an introduction to them. One other sour note. These books have been out for more than a decade. Somehow in that time, not all typos were caught. It's annoying to say the least.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Backwards Perspective 13 Dec 2011
By punkmunk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I actually picked this book up without having read any of the Dragonlance novels previously. From my perspective this was the beginning of the story, not a prequel. This is due to my own ignorance of the order in which they were intended to be read. I have since read both the Chronicles trilogy and the Legends trilogy.

That being said, it was okay, not great. There is a lot of emphasis placed on the characters themselves, and not on the story of the book. I'm assuming, these novels being written after the Chronicles and Legends trilogies, in which Raistlin plays a huge part, that the characters were intentionally the main focus. If you read the originally series before this, I would think you would be much more interested in hearing more about Raistlin, and the origins of him and his companions, than reading another separate tale.

From my perspective, reading this first it was a good book and I would have called it just that; a good (not great) book. However, the trilogies that come after this are fantastic! These two novels simply add depth to an already excellent tale and are worth reading even if you have already read the trilogies. It is just like reading an excellent book, once in a while you will come across a less exciting chapter that may not be "great" but it adds significant depth to the rest of the story. If the Dragonlance series was one book, this would be that chapter, and it is definitely worth reading it to get to the rest of the story!

Side Note - I actually preferred reading these two before the trilogies, and if I had to do it over again I would read this first still, it just seems to flow better that way.

My fiance bought this book because he likes these types of stories. Took a bit to get to us by mail. Two weeks I believe. I'm not complaining though. This used book looks brand new.
