Continúa esta trilogía con una historia ciertamente desconcertante en torno a las luchas entre los dioses y con Mina como elemento catalizador de las mismas.
No termino de encontrarle la gracia a esta trilogía, ni siquiera vislumbro ni la sombra de lo que fue Mina en La Guerra de los Espíritus. Sinceramente, me está resultando bastante decepcionante, sobre todo el camino que parece seguir y que no adelanto en esta crónica por no hacer spoiler a nadie (si es que alguien lee esto; que lo escribo má

This novel is the sequel to Amber and Ashes. In it Mina comes face to face with some inconsistency in regards to who she has. As she does not remember her childhood she decides to go against Chemosh’s wishes to discover who she is. The truth to her past lies with Rhys and Nightshade. Rhys and Nightshade, while being hunted by Mina who wants answers to her past, are trying to kill Lleu (Rhy’s brother) before he can harm more women.

I enjoyed this novel as much as I enjoyed the first novel. The pl

After reading the first book Amber and Ashes, I couldn't wait for the second volume to come out. You don't have to have read any of the Dragonlance novels to read this new series. It's a quick easy read and follows the story of Mina and how she plays into the plans of the different gods in wanting to rule the world. There's a little bit of love and suspense, dealing of relationships between the immortal and mortal worlds. I can't wait to read the last book in this trilogy. I definitely recommend ...more

The main problem with this series isn't so much that it's fluff, I've got nothing against that (despite obvious contrivances from the D&D rule book), it's more that there is too much focus on the gods. Specific powers and rules applied to them are constantly in the background of the story while the mortals are largely ignored, save Rhys and Nightshade. While the revealing of Mina's divinity isn't really surprising after about halfway through the book, the idea that she is of the Light is. Fr ...more

Migliora rispetto al primo, anche se di poco, soprattutto dopo la metà.

Purtroppo continua a dare l'impressione di una scarsissima pianificazione della trama. Gli dei sembrano quasi umani, per quante limitazioni hanno, per la maggior parte del tempo, salvo poi avere un guizzo di potenza divina. Poco credibili.

E monopolizzano la storia. Per quanto gli umani cerchino di fare qualcosa, si trovano sempre il dio che li blocca e devono attendere l'intervento di un altro dio per tirarsene fuori.

The characters introduced in the first volume of the Dark Disciple trilogy return in Amber and Iron. Rhys and Nightshade continue to follow Lleu, to find a way to destroy Chemosh's curse. Mina continues to help the God of Death in his attempt to rule the dark pantheon, but the mysteries from her past starts to surface, shaking her to the core. As more gods get involved, the mysteries surrounding Mina nature and origin slowly unravel.
This is the best volume of the trilogy, the one I enjoyed readi

Mina has taken herself to the next level of godly complications, which is never good because all it does is create trouble for the world. I don't want to spoil anything. It is a truly wonderful second to the first of this trilogy. I rather wish I had the third one on hand to finish it off, to find out what happens after the end of Amber & Iron. There is no dawdling in the plot, so don't worry about it dragging on, just worry about the Beloved of Chemosh along with the god himself. We'll disc ...more

It would have been nice to reread my review for the first installment in the Dark Disciple series, but I think I said something about enjoying my return to Krynn as it has been a number of years since last I was there (or something like that).
What I can say about the second installment is that it is tremendously better than the first one and I actually liked the first one. I found the story being told at a good pace. Ms. Weis did a fine job building up to the key discoveries in this novel. The e

The Dark Disciple Series is Ms Weis again at her finest. The mystery behind Mina is compelling to the end. A rogue monk on Krynn is also new and refreshing amidst the many canon lorekeepers of Dragonlance. If one were finished with The Chronicles, The Legends and The War of Souls, this is the next series to read. Also, although not written by Weis, The Minotaurs Series is also key to understanding the changing land of Krynn in the 5th Age.

Off like a shotgun...I'm eating it up, like the last one. In case you never knew, I can take 1-2 months to read a book, but I finished book 1 and started book 2 within a week. Practically unheard of. It's AWESOME, btw.

i am LOVIN this dark disciple series i'm reading. it almost seems that she was so inspired that words are being left out. i've found types throughout. doesn't reduce my enjoyment, tho.

I liked this entry better than I did its predecessor. The author didn't have to take the time to set up the story and thus was able to dive right in (and I mean dive right in. It would be a good idea to read this book immediately after reading the first one). As in the first entry, the pov is spread amonst the characters for a more equal and interesting read. Be forewarned, though, it ends on a cliff-hanger.

This book was phenomenal! Where as the first book didn't delve too deeply into Mina herself, this book finally answered all my questions! About half way through the book I just knew what Mina was, so when they finally came out with it I went, I knew it!! Can't wait to read the next. I was happy to see that Majere made quite the appearance in this book too.

Boring, boring, boring. Especially when you consider how many books are on my to-read shelf. That shelf is not just a list of things I would like to read. Each entry is a physical book on a physical self or a title stored on my Kindle that I actually plan to read. (I should post a picture of that sometime. My to-read shelf is actually one shelf, LOL!) So I need to be ruthless.

This book opens up a new world, displaying the extricates of other gods. It shows the politics of the gods and their human-like relations. A rogue monk on Krynn is also new and refreshing amidst the many canon lorekeepers of Dragonlance. If one were finished with The Chronicles, The Legends and The War of Souls, this is the next series to read.

amazing trilogy, truly gripping and its getting more complicated as it goes along, the beloved of chemosh are as horrible as mina is and they are becoming ever more numerous and now all the gods are becoming interested in mina to say the least!! what is the grip mina has on gods and humans alike?? hate the only way the beloved can be killed, its chilling but no spoilers!!

I had the notion that the second instalment in any series is always the worst of the bunch, and this is based on experience. But I actually enjoyed this more than the first book, and that's saying much as I really loved the first book.

Didn't expect the twist at the end! Huge shock.

The second part of Mina's story. I'm a huge Dragonlance fan but unfortunately I have to tell his is not the best book by far. The gods are present way too much and they are too petty. Although the cliffhanger at the end of the book is not bad.

This book opens up a new world, displaying the extricates of other gods. It shows the politics of the gods and their human-like relations. The terrible cost of a beloveds death only feeds the fear of humans and gods alike. It was an interesting read and I had a hard time put the book down.

Not as good as Amber and Ashes (Vol 1), but the ending makes you want more.

It's nice to have a new trilogy with a new generation of characters in a familiar setting. Also nice is how big the other gods figure into this trilogy.

I really enjoy this kind of book, and as far as this author goes, few better. This series seems to get more interesting as it goes along, can't wait to read book three.
