I am really conflicted about this book. I blasted through it, reading large swaths of it in a single sitting, and yet I can't bring myself to recommend it.

The big question this book asks - and pretty much the premise of the book - is just how bad a person can be before they cannot be redeemed, and how far a man can fall before he loses his soul.

Well, within the first 50 pages of this book, we see our "heroes" rob a hospital, set an entire town on fire, kill dozens of people, rob a merchant wag

Recommends it for: Dragonlance fans.
A group of unlikely heroes get together to strive towards a common goal - nothing extraordinary about that, in fact, unlikely heroes seem to be more the rule than the exception these days.
However, some things make Downfall different. For starters, I think it's the first book I've read starring a kobold as one of the heroes - and I like Ilbreth (nicknamed Fetch) a lot. Second, I like the concept of the dragon scale basically melted into the leg of the book's main character, Dhamon Grimwulf - now

It's been years, but I really enjoyed reading the Dhamon Saga and seeing his character development. Plus, Jean Rabe has a real way with fight sequences.
It was ok as a dagonlance book. Not the best one.
Not for children, there are some passages not necessarily good for anyone. (adult)
