Realms Of The Dragons, edited by Philip Athans, is an anthology of short stories for The Year Of Rogue Dragons Trilogy, by Richard Lee Byers, set in the Forgotten Realms universe. However, despite this books claims not all of this books stories actually relate to The Year Of Rogue Dragons. Rather the stories focus on dragons throughout the ages with only a couple actually taking place during the Year Of Rogue Dragons.

The stories themselves are well written and very varied in content. The range of authors who have contributed is also very good and features stories by established Forgotten Realms authors such as Lisa Smedman, Forgotten Realms legends such as R.A. Salvatore and newcomers such as Jess Lebow. As such the short stories vary in quality but all are of a decent standard and readers will find new authors of interest that they may previously not have heard of. The shortness of the stories also allow this anthology to be accessible to younger readers who may struggle to get through a whole novel or for a reader who is looking for a series of short distractions. However, I do have one note of caution and that is a number of these short stories feature some of the authors previous characters and to get the most of these stories it would help to be familiar with some of the authors' earlier works.

Overall, this is a good, solid anthology that will appeal to anyone who has enjoyed The Year Of Rogue Dragons Trilogy or anyone who is a Forgotten Realms fan.

it is a very good book in my opinion. I would rank it between 4-5 depends on the reader actually...Many stories were absolutely brilliant while others were just good. Many many interesting characters and good plots...
I found this book a good brake from the long trilogies and a good introduction the year of the rogue dragons books.
I definetely recommend it.
