Time of the Twins (Dragonlance: Legends #1)

At the same time, the beautiful cleric Crysania has undergone a mission to redeem Raistin. Will she meet success or be drawn into evil as well? Can a reunion of the Companions be far behind?

There are few D&D novelizations out there that are really worth reading. Only two series have I loved, and the original 6 (became 7) "Dragonlance" novels are one of those great series. (Gord the Rogue is the other).
At first when I read this, I was a bit put off because the "Krynn" world did not "agree" with D&D. The gods had different names (Bahamut = Paladine, Tiamut = Takhesis)...more
I probably should have listened to them. The first book was fantastic.

If I went back and read these books now, I'm sure I would still enjoy them despite the fact that I now see them in a different light. Sure, they aren't original and they use just about every fantasy cliche there is. But it's not like I knew that when I first r...more
I loved them..
The books are best read as one volume; I still have my original TSR 1987 omnibus hardback edition.
Each character is unique and memorable. Some, though, are a bit cliche and somewhat two-dimensional, but those particular roles are quite small in this trilogy. The twins, Caramon and Raistlin are the main stars here, especially Raistlin. A...more
Trata-se da busca de poder de Raistlin Majere e o esforço para detê-lo.
O objetivo de Raistlin é simples, mas o plano é mirabolante e nenhum outro personagem é páreo para seu jogo, não porque suas artimanhas são coesas, mas porque os autores querem assim. Isso soa fraco. Por outro lado, pode ser porque Caramon e Crysania se preocupam com ele demais, pelo menos no começo.

Perhaps part of the reasons why is because we finally get to narrow down our focus to fewer characters, so that means each character gets more "screen time" as it were. In addition, the topic of "evil people trying to take over the world" in the Chronicles...more
