I have mixed feelings about this book. This story makes Sturm look stupid and brash, which perhaps he was in his youth, but his character in this book is a far cry from the man we later meet in the Chronicles series. The storytelling, however, was really enthralling. Michael Williams' forest imagery was fantastic and reminded me of some of the great imagery in the Chronicles and War of the Souls books.

This is where the meetings tend to go downhill. There is a lack of depth in the latter ones.
Young Sturm's adventure had possibilities. Unfortunately, the interesting characters along the way (Vertumnus, Mara, Cyren, and Jack Derry) were not enough to make the story the winner that I had hoped it would be. The limitations of the plot restricted the story too much. Fans of the series, or of Sturm Brightblade, may still want to read it, but the story didn't satisfy me. It stopped me from finishing the series. The editors at TSR did not set the bar high enough.
The Oath And The Measure is, na wat moeilijk te doorkomen hoofdstukken en een langdradig einde (heel beschrijvend en pas laat to the point), wel een aanrader als je meer wilt te weten komen over Sturm Brightblade en hoe de regelgeving van The Order zijn leven zowat domineert. Er zit ook nogal wat psychologisch materiaal in het verhaal. Echt schitterend.
Is the worst book I ever read. The worst. In my whole life.

Over the past 20 years, he has written a number of strange novels, from the early WEASEL'S LUCK and GALEN BEKNIGHTED in the best-selling DRAGONLANCE series to the more recent lyrical ...more
