Why Richard Lee Byers does not rank up there with Ed Greenwood and RA Salvatore is beyond me. He needs that one character to catch on. In this book, he has several. This book has all of the action, magic, and of course realm shattering threats that Richard Lee Byers is known for, however this time, there is an underlying theme of accepting yourself, and making the most of who you are. It is about becoming comfortable in your skin and accepting that this is who you are and you need to make the ...more

Dragons are going mad in Faerun. The Rage, a mysterious malady affecting even the most noble of these creatures, has returned. Out of the chaos emerges a group of unlikely heroes. A bitter, mangled dragon hunter, a lovely shape-shifting Song dragon, a roguish winged elf and their companions must band together to find a cure. Blocking their every step is a shadowy cult.

This trilogy was well written and quite a good read. The characters and plot are very intriguing and exciting. Because of the heavy use of dragons and magic, I would recommend it to those who are REALLY into that stuff.

One problem is a lack of creativity in certain situations ...more

An absolutely amazing trilogy. Never at a loss for action, with a battle in almost every chapter. This book is definitely not at a loss for dragons, it has them in just about every variety possible. I also like how it used material from the D&D games, particularly Draconomicon, without being to heavy handed.

Good fun and indeed lots of dragons but somehow the characters blur and the dragons seem more petty than majestic.
