I first read this series many moons ago (I believe I was 13). I am thirty years old now, and have eagerly anticipated every new addition. I am an avid reader, and can honestly say never have characters come so alive in my mind. I found myself laughing out loud at times, and heartbroken at others. These books will be passed down to my children so that hopefully they can enjoy the wonderfull world of Krynn. I would recommend (and have) this book and the ones that follow to anyone with an adventurous soul... Bravo!

From the time the companions met Goldmoon and Riverwind in the Inn of the Last Home until the end of the book I don't think I've ever had so much fun reading.

I loved the characters, and had a lot of trouble putting it down and convincing myself that they didn't exist. I couldn't get over how well developed the characters were and how complex thier personalities and problems were.

Even now, only a few months after I finished reading this book, I find myself comparing events in reality to events in this book. I am constantly trying to persuade my friends to read it.

This book (along with most other Dragon Lance books) quickly rose to the top of my "favorite book list". I didn't know what I'd read after I'd finished my other books, and I'm sure glad I chose this one. It opened a new world for me to explore.

I often feel like "grabbing my hoopak and going on an adventure" with the characters.

I hope they never make a movie, they'd destroy this piece of art.

Well, what can i say? I was fortunate enough to get a copy of this book free with a computer game version, but it took me a while to get around to reading it. Boy was i glad i did! There aren't many books that I enjoy reading over again, but here i was introduced to a trilogy that i could read forever. The characters are so real, they jump out of the page, you feel their pains, laugh along with Tas and his antics, and even a character seemingly undeserving of pity such as Raistlin is much more than the frail, bitter mage he appears. When i start reading, i get caught up in the story and hours just melt away, a real pleasure. Quite simply the finest set of books i have had the pleasure to read, and it led me into a whole series of further adventures, with new friends and old, long may it continue!

i can honestly say that this is great book that set up the trilogy perfectly, showing that all the charicters have such a deep history. the different personalities in the group make it impossible for the reader not to find at least one charicter to relate to.

the story starts in a bar where an odd group of friends fufill a promise to meet after five years, but shortlly after fate sends them on a journey to find proof of the forgoten gods. along the journey they find danger and war wherever they go, the dark queen is returning and she brings her children, the evil dragons of legend.

this book is a must read for anyone with an imagination, filled with gods, hobgoblins and dragons. on a scale of one to ten i give this a 9.

I am only familiar with RP culture by the PC games and some RPG games I played with my friends, and I thought that I had an adequate knowledge. But after I read this book, which is the first after Lords of the Rings of this kind, I understand that I need to know much and I need to read more. This book is simply the start for me and I hope for others like me that are interested in this kind of novel.

I am writing this rewiew just as I have finished the book. I read the last 100 pages in 3 hours in a very exciting way, and I know what I will see in my dreams tonight and tomorrow and the other days, and I am very impatiant to see those dreams and read the other books of the series.

By the way however I don't like thieves Tas is my favorite character. He is very funny and brave.

This book promises hours, days and nights of excitement and fantasy lots of action and takes you out of the real boring world into the fantastic world of dragons, fighters, mages, and the Dragonlance!

When my cousin first gave me this book, I kinda just put it aside. Then, when me and my friend were talking, I told him about it. He became curious, and read it. Every day at school, he would tell me of all the cool things that happened in this book. I started reading it, and from the first chapter, I was hooked. It was so much better than the stories he told. Even though my loose-lipped friend told me some surprises, Weis and Hickmans style in writing made it seem like new.

Each character in this novel and it's two other volumes, is so well developed that sometimes I think that instead of a fiction peice, I am reading about real people, and real places. Each one of the characters in this book taught me something, from Raistlin, the brooding mage, to Tanis, my favorite character.

I recomended this book to all my friends, and they all loved it. In fact, at least once a month, one of mty friends will come to me and ask for another Dragonlance novel.

I urge everyone out there who reads this review to go out and read this book. And, feel free to send me an e-mail letting me know if you liked it.
