I doubt whether this will make a whole lot of sense to anybody who hasn't read the original novel. I found it helpful as a reminder of the key plot events that moved the story forward, but there is none of the underlying cast turmoil that added some spice to the Chronicles. The art is fairly well done, if a slight bit inconsistent, and Krynn does look a lot like I imagined here.

The problem is: there's a lot that happens here, and it is true to the novel, but not a lot of effort has gone into te

I listened to this ages ago as an audio book, and one problem I had was keeping all the characters straight. There's still an abundance of characters, but, luckily, now there are handy graphic markers to help keep them straight (i.e. Strum is the knight with the horned helment, Caramon has the winged helmet, etc.)

It's a well-known story, so I won't go into depth here. It's pretty standard quest fair, but it's fun. I like Tasselhoff and Fizban, and Raistlin and Tanis.

What the hell is with the sca

I picked this one up at a use bookstore, interested to see the Dragonlance story brought to life in the graphic novel format. Although the story clips along at a very fast pace, losing all subtlety and extra pacing that the book provides, the graphic novel covers all the major events of the novel and really depicted them perfectly as I might have imagined them. It was not only a good reminder of the story itself, but also a great accompaniment to the novel as a whole. I thought the artwork was ...more

One of the more 'meh' graphic novel adaptations I've read. Dialogue felt stilted and the pacing was a little uneven. But then again, the original novel wasn't exactly the paragon of literary achievement either.

And Steve Kurth's pencils annoy me a little - perhaps I'm just not used to the style. Not to dismiss Kurth's skills, but I sometimes felt as though the art was saved only by virtue of the great color done by Imaginary Friends Studios.

A very good series. Based off the popular Dungeons and Dragons role player game (go half-elves), this was the book to read back in high school. Very good journey story with great character arcs. I recommend this opening series and all its accompanying series, especially the Dragonlance-Legends series about the twins Caramon and Raistlin.

This was the first series of D&D novels I read even though I had been playing for many years. I fell in love with the characters and the setting after reading this book and I continued with this series and I liked all the other books by Weiss and Hickman but not so much the stuff not written by them.

If you keep in mind the heavy D&D background, and the fact that these books are geared towards 15-year-old boys, they're Great Fun! Just good stories. It's pure fluff -- nothing to change your life -- but highly enjoyable.

ZERO STARS...Very Disappointing.
Boring because it was so predictable.
Glad I only picked up Volume 1, not worth the price of admission.
Only gave one star because they won't let me give negative stars.
Really one of the worst Fantasy genre reads I've ever read.

I read the book many years ago and I thought it might be fun to read the graphic novel. Not so much. I like the artwork, but I would rather go back and read the books again because I have my own image of how the story looks in my head.
Audie Little
if you like mages, knights, elves, dwarfs, and mystical creatures then this is the book for you. a group of Nobel warriors go on a dragon slaying quest. while their world is being taken over by lizard monsters. not too shabby.

One of my favorite all time fantasy series. Yes, it's not particularly deep, but it has one of the best characters in all of fantasy lit: Raistlin. A disgruntled and frail wizard who rises to challenge the gods by will and bitterness.

Just read this for the second time and I love the story. Hickman and Weis have great books and now they are terrific graphic novels. The art in this book was fantastic. I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series that they have published.

I was disapointed. I didn't even finish. The artwork was horrible, the story lagged. Read the original it's far better.

out of all the fantasy novels i've read, these are with out a doubt my all time favorites. I actually feel that the first book not the best one, but they get better and better as they go.

Its a fun and enjoyable read. An adventure story that you don't really have to put much thought into. I'd recommend it for some light reading. :)

I've read this series twice - I was really carried away into these books, and got invested in the characters.

I really really like the graphic novel adaptations of Chronicles. I was VERY VERY disappointed in the animated movie. This makes up for it somewhat though.

See my review for Dragons of Winter Night. One thing I should say are that the covers are all really well-done in my mind.

Points for nostalgia. I read the four part trilogy in middle school and it got me into painting metal miniatures and playing Dungeons and Dragons way back.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book which introduced me to the characters of Dragonlance and to the world they belong in. Eager to find out more about The Huma.

A great read from a bygone era of childhood, when fantasy and dragons and knights made your heart wish for a magical portal to another world.
