It may have been 20 years since I bought this book, but the passing years have done nothing to dim the charm these books first had.

That said, I now know why I started it and put it down, as the first third of the book is very slow to get going as it busies itself setting up the new characters and the lives of the old ones.

Once it hits its stride, however, it zips along at a fair pace and makes several observations about organised religion and ambition on it's way to the cliff-hanger ending.

Interestingly, the whole tone of the book changes (in a good way) every time Tasslehoff makes an appearance, which unfortunately then turns the spotlight on how laboured Caramon's character is in the early stages.

Weiss and Hickman are masters and creating worlds though, and the early life of Krynn gives them more scope to work their magic.
