5.0 out of 5 stars A great Dragonlance companion.. 29 Sept. 2002
By D. Pachal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Being a fan of Dragonlance for many years, but also being unlucky to not get this book the first time it was published, I was very happy to see that the publishers decided to put this book up for sale again. "Leaves from the Inn of the Last Home", is great if you want to know more history on the Dragonlance. It has a lot of info on the Gods of Krynn. There is deeply detailed information about the past of Krynn. Including wars, gods, dragons, and anything else you could possibly want to know.
There are also songs, poems, and recipes. Many of the songs and poems were published in the original Chronicles or Legends. But it is nice to have them in one place in easy reach. The recipes range from Gully Dwarf Stew to Otik's spicy potatoes. This book is definatley an entertaining companion to the Dragonlance world. People looked for it everywhere when it out out-of-print. So what better time to get it than now when they are publishing it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss it! 2 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I first saw this book on a visit to the States in Feburary 1997. Since then I have been kicking myself for not buying it, seeing as it cannot be found anywhere! It is the complete sourcebook of Krynn, a must for all Role Players or Gamers, and even fanatical Krynn Collectors. It contains background information on the Heroes of the Lance and even Kenderish maps. There are songs, recipes, and the book itself is embodied with the true spirit of Dragonlance Adventuring. Being a small-time collector and currently owning 48 D.L. books, take my advice- this is not an oppertunity to be missed!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best sourcebooks for Dragonlance 11 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book definitly has it all. All that miscellaneous information that isn't quite explained in the novels... especially the recipes. The problem I ran into was trying to find it, since I missed the last reprinting. To anyone looking for it, look up Margaret Weis's store in Wisonsin.. find the phone number and call. She said they had some extras laying around.. I even got mine autographed!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Wonderful 25 Years After First Reading 26 Mar. 2012
By Kevin M. Derby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Leaves from the Inn of the Last Hope" advertises itself as "the complete Krynn source book" and, after reading it for the first time in more than two decades, I can not argue against that line. Originally published in 1987, "Leaves" offers some very solid looks at the characters, races, history, artifacts, cultures--and a host of other elements--that compose Krynn, the home of the Dragonlance saga. There are profiles, songs, stories and recipes that serve as a loving tribute to a still popular fantasy setting and collection of books. The two premier shapers of the Dragonlance setting--Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman--serve as the editors of this book and it shows.

Perhaps the best part of the work are the various sketches and profiles done on the main characters in numerology and through runes. These profiles offer some interesting depth to the main characters. There is also an interesting story on how the Companions met though this would later be contradicted numerous times by some of the writers--including Weis--who would write novels published after this book was first released.

I remember loving this book when it came out in 1987. Twenty five years later, it's fair to say this book has aged better than your humble reviewer. But even in my late 30s, the book has not lost all its magic to me by any means.

And yet...there is a bit of a melancholy side to rereading "Leaves." When I first came across this book in 1987, it appeared that the Dragonlance series was at the high noon of an invincible summer as Weis and Hickman produced the truly wonderful "Chronicles" and "Legends" series. But rot was already inflicting the vallenwood trees as TSR green lighted a host of bad books by dreadful writers, some of whom could not even be bothered with reading the two original trilogies of books. While there would be some Indian Summers for Krynn in the decades to come, including some nice books by Weis and Hickman who kept coming and going, "Leaves" comes off as the brilliant last day of summer. It serves as a fitting end piece for the Dragonlance saga's wonderful start--before mediocre hacks and a host of corporate changes to the publisher started undermining Krynn's magic.

"Leaves" serves as the last part to what must be seen as Dragonlance's high point and a worthy addition to it.

By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It contains any info you want to know about Dragonlance and even stuff you used to think was so small no one would ever get info about it. It has stories, poems, songs, numerology information, and recipes.
