Though I've seen some criticism on this book I for one have always loved it and consider it to be one of my personal favorite Dragonlance novels. The book has a very Sir Gawain and the Green Knight feel to it which added to my overall enjoyment. It was a well paced book that managed to keep me engrossed throughout it's journey and as for the criticism I've seen about as to the book making Sturm (My favorite of the companions of the Lance) come off as stupid and brash well...People do need to rem ...more

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. He also gave depth to his characters and pulled some surprises that I didn't expect. I find th ...more

My rating is 3.5 stars.

This is part of the Dragonlance world and takes place before the original trilogy. In this one, we have a prequel for Sturm Brightblade. This one details Sturm's journey as he travels to a forest for a challenge. On the way, he will meet different species and be involved in side adventures. He ends up learning more about his beloved knighthood during this journey.

This book surprised me as I wasn't expecting much from this book. I didn't care for the main foe as the concept

This is where the meetings tend to go downhill. There is a lack of depth in the latter ones.

Oath and measure

Just too ridiculous. Good writing of a truly low quality story. Not up to the author's writing ability at all.
Rogue-van (the Bookman)
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.
