I wasn't a big fan of Dragons of Summer Flame. I felt, like a lot of others, that it destroyed everything that made Krynn special, almost flippantly killing of key characters, and just as carelessly resurrecting others. So I didn't hold out much hope for Dragons of a Fallen Sun. To my suprise, I loved it! Weis and Hickman have turned Krynn into a dark, depressing post-apocolyptic world, with desperate charcters bereft of gods. Consequentely all the characters are hundreds of times more interesting, and the intensity of the novel is turned up full. Even the unexpected resurrection of yet another of the heroes of the lance didn't put me off - it's done in a more sensible way, and it's Tas, so who can argue about that, eh? All in all, a fantastic return to Krynn that re-made me into a fan!
