5.0 out of 5 stars The rest of the story..., 10 July 2003
This review is from: Dragonlance Legends Gift Set (Mass Market Paperback)
The only true sequel to the 'Chronicles' set of books, here in gift-pack form. Legends works as well as the first story, but focuses its scope more intently on Raistlin, Caramon and Tas. In some ways this works, in others it frustrates, before finally we get a 'mini-reprise' of Chronicles in the final volume.
As to the story - Well, Caramon and Tika are running the inn, and Caramon's got fat and alcoholic because Raistlin's left to become the most powerful mage ever. Raistlin decides he wants to become a God, so travels back in time to get the means to do just that. Caramon becomes the reluctant hero trying to stop him.
Notable points are Tas being forced to grow up more than even in the Chronicles books; Caramon also being forced to grow up (something that was sadly absent from Chronicles, but this really does make up for that); and Dalamar, a great almost-dark character who really doesn't feature enough for such a good idea.
But generally speaking, the series reprises all of the good points of Chronicles, with only some minor flabby points during the time travel, which you really don't notice given the pace of events. Ties up a lot of the loose ends left after Chronicles, as well.
