Actual rating is 4.5 stars.

This is part of Dragonlance as we visit the world of Krynn. In this one, the action takes place on the continent of Taladas instead of the continent of Ansalon where the majority of the novels take place. This book has three stories. We have a new leader of the barbarians who is leading his people to war against his enemies. An elf that is hired to steal a statue that contains the spirit of the most ruthless emperor of this land. The last story is the commander of the

Not your typical Dragonlance novel. We have a new section of Krynn called Taladas, instead of a focus on Ansalon The gods are named differently (though similar enough names to not confuse the readers) and brand new cultures for familiar races. I enjoyed this new perspective on a world I have come to love.
I especially enjoyed how well Pierson brought the story lines together.  My favorite would have to be Shedara's because of her balance with magic use and rogue skills. It reminded me of prestige

Arguably the best Dragonlance book.

Unlike most Dragonlance, this one does not go as a typical heroic fantasy D&D adventure, but tries somehtign genuinely different. The story is told through 3 distinct PoVs, which only overlap towards the end. Story isn't amazing, but keeps the reader's interest.
