HASH(0x9b5effc0) out of 5 stars Good, but Verminaard is better. 27 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a good, solid book. As another reviewer stated, it IS slow, but worth reading. The author uses good descriptions, but personally I think that Flint, the King (another Niles book) was superior to this one. I also think that Before the Mask, which told the story of Verminaard, was better. Read it if you've already started the series, but if you haven't, then start on a different book, like the Gully Dwarves or Before the Mask.

HASH(0x8bc5f6dc) out of 5 stars Somehow deceiving 15 April 1999
By Petrovas S. - Published on
Format: Paperback
Some parts are quite boring but the text is well written. I was deceived when I realized that it didn' t respect Ariakas's background as it was written in Chronicles Trilogy. The story is some kind of a waste of time when one thinks that it could be completely told in less than two pages. It's hard to believe that Takhisis used all of those characters just to guide her Champion to Firetomb.

HASH(0x8bcc1204) out of 5 stars It's O.K. 25 Jan. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
THis Book was O.K. And I think you should read it. I think it does get boring at some points but it is still pretty cool. I think some other Douglas Niles books are better but you decide
HASH(0x9b5f2144) out of 5 stars Evil can be Good 29 Sept. 2001
By Ariakas - Published on
Format: Paperback
Obviously Ariakas is my all time favorite character in the Dragonlance novels. I have been trying to get this book for years and finally succeded (thanks to amazon). Unlike other reviews this book i thought was not boring at all. There was plenty of sword figthing, magic and love making in this book, what more can you ask for. Ok, lets be honest, evil characters are the most interesting to read about. They are unpredictable, noncaring, and will kill anyone at anytime, but will always lose at the end :( (only bad thing). For those who have read the chronicles all know how Ariakas dies, which bothers me, think about this, he was a great swordsman, can cast spells with the aid of Takhisis, has immense physical strength, commands thousands,men tremble before him. What more can you ask for. Dragon Highlord Ariakas deserves the utmost respect even if your 100% good, and i truly believe if they had to kill him off it should have been in a much more honorable way.
HASH(0x8bf52750) out of 5 stars Excellent! 10 May 2000
By C.J.S. - Published on
Format: Paperback
Great story loaded with action. I enjoyed every bit of it, especially his Dwarven Companion. Before the Mask in My opinion was very slow and boring. This story is fast starting and keeps you riveted. I've been a fan of DL since the very Beginning, and this is my second favorite "offshoot" book, Lorde Toade being the best. Buy it if You can!!
