***As a disclaimer, it has been years since I read this book. However, I read it enough times growing up and beyond that I still remember enough

Vinas Solamnus was always a bit of a guilty pleasure book, like most standalone Dragonlance stories. It seems that few fantasy fans are willing to admit that they like Dragonlance (and many openly mock them), but sometimes you just need to recognize that a book is fun. And this book, to me, was indeed fun.

A young Vinas Solamnus actually does not much res

Una mirada a los primeros años de Vinas Solamnus, el fundador, entre otras cosas, de los famosos Caballeros de Solamnia. Pensaba que la novela se centraría precisamente en este hecho, pero me equivocaba totalmente.

Nos encontramos con una novela no demasiado larga (unas 300 páginas) que parece no estar adecuadamente desarrollada. Toda la primera parte transcurre en sucesivos saltos adelante, algunos de varios años, lo que difícilmente hace que el lector pueda sentir empatía por el personaje princ

This book takes place in the Dragonlance realm. It tells the story of how the knighthood began.

This novel was a nice addition to the Dragonlance world. The book can be compared to a biography as this book details his life from his teen years to fatherhood and how the main character gains his ideals that will end up defining the knighthood. I was never bored with this book as it had a nice steady pace. If you are a fan of Dragonlance, you might want to try this novel.

I read this twice in high school, a really fantastic coming-of-age story that cemented how I viewed heroic fantasy knights alongside such luminaries as the Knights of the Round Table. Perhaps it's worth finding a copy (I sold mine long ago) and rereading to see how it holds up after more than a decade.

Leí el libro hace un tiempo ya y aunque no lo recuerdo, si tengo la impresión de que Vinas Solamnus me pareció todo un caballero hecho y derecho. Siempre viendo por el bien, la justicia... y aprendiendo de los errores.

Enjoyed listening to this, really enjoy listening to Liam's voice (aka vax'ildan - critical role!) The story was a little confusing in parts and I had to go over bits but I enjoyed how it explored vinas' life from being a boy of 16 right through to very old age, very cool :)

I had a lot of fun reading this book. The title character develops a chivalric order after spending his life struggling to learn what it means to keep his honor in a time of evil rulers and soldiers.

This was my second time I read this book (the first time was in high school) and while it was still good, it wasn't as great as I first thought. Sure there were some great moments but then there were some parts that seemed too convenient.

This was the making of a Paladin, from his early years to the end.
Not great literature but a good read if you are into D&D.

Not what I was expecting from a Dragonlance book. Was exciting and had a lot of magic and big battles.
