The least excellent of this stellar series,
on 16 June 1998
But that doesn't say much, the others are all so amazing. Elven Star introduces an almost entirely new cast of characters from Dragon Wing, (the first volume of the series), including Zifnab, the latest incarnation of Fizban, the lovable, loony wizard from Dragonlance. He is an enigmatic character, maintaining depth while still being a hysterically funny comic relief character. This book shows Weis and Hickman's sheer joy in writing, which they impart to the reader beautifully. This book is not as good as the others, the cast of characters is slightly less stellar than the first volume, though this mars the book only a little. Worth reading, and even if you don't like it as much as the first, get through it, and then you hit the real treat in the third volume, Fire Sea, which deserves more stars than are available to give.
