Somewhat disappointing on a variety of fronts, this book promises to detail the origin of the great Dwarven city Thorbardin. If you are new to Dragonlance, a lot of the lore will be lost on you. If you are rusty to Dragonlance, most of the lore will be lost on you.

Dan Parkinson could have done a much better job with the style of storytelling here. While his representation of the Dwarves is fair and they overall feel is decidedly Dragonlance-esque, his overall presentation is rather hollow and al...more

I usually really enjoy the books in the Dragonlance and Forgotten Realms fantasy series but this one just let me down. Most of the books in the mentioned settings are rich on dialogue and the occurrences of individual or groups of characters. This book did occasionally have glimpses or short segments of this type of story-telling.

Almost finished with this book. I'm a huge DL fan, but never really strayed much from the core books. I was looking to get back into the world of Kyrnn and so picked this book up. There is nothing earth shattering about the writing, character development, or plot. It is however a story set in the DL world that is solely focused on the dwarven races as they "evovled" on Krynn. The author does a decent enough job to make you interested in the next book so I'll most likely finish out the series.

This book has a bit of a dry story-telling style, which is befitting for a book that is basically the history of the dwarves in Dragonlance. Though it's decidedly the first in a series, it ends at a logical stopping point.
A good story with interesting characters written from a unique point of view.

First book of a trilogy
It tends to meander around quite a bit, but is surprisingly entertaining.
Seía un 4,5 más que un cuatro, pero bueno.
