4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not spectacular, 22 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Dragons of the Highlord Skies: The Lost Chronicles, Volume Two (Dragonlance Novel: The Lost Chronicles) (Mass Market Paperback)
I agree with one of the earlier reviews that there should have been more Lord Soth in the book, Kitiara's "climatic battle" was a disappointment and almost seems to have been written as an afterthought - a waste of a great "hook". Additionally, some of the other characters - in particular tasslehoff - seem to have become characteratures of themselves, their traits overly exaggerated compared to the original novels (Dwarven Depths was worse here). Overall however I found the return to Krynn to be a pleasant experience, and it was nice to see parts of the story "intersect" with certain events in the original novels. Unlike some other readers I enjoyed having some of the old history repeated - it has been many years since I read the original novels, but the first two trilogies remain my favourite books of all time. I also agree that Weis and Hickman are obviously less inspired than they were in the original novels, but not drastically so. These are a huge step up on the recent "Summer Flame" novel which was absolutely appalling in my opinion. Highlord Skies is worth reading, its like a favourite warm blanket and I am looking forward to the final in the trilogy.
