Every once in a while, I crack this book open and it's always a familiar, wonderful comfort-read. First time I read it was in Borders (r.i.p.), and I remember frantically purchasing the third book to finish reading the series at home. Loved it that much.

I read this book back in 2001 and loved it. Honestly its the first D&D pulp fantasy type book that attempts to show how society in that world started. You see how elves were "light years" ahead of humans and how dragons helped to shape or destroy humanity. I think more fantasy worlds could use some form of pre-history tale as it truely helps the fiction. Its a shame that Dragonlance isn't more popular.
I read this one quite a while ago, and for a while it was my favorite book. It is purely fantasy, and a relatively good story. If you have better things to read, read those. Save this for when you're desperate for something to read, when you've exhausted your flow. Really it's not THAT great, but it's fun. Warning: cheesy and somewhat gorey.
