The original Dragonlance Chronicles was the trilogy that launched a thousand other D&D tie-in novels; a wildly successful story in which the Forces of Evil were pitted against a half-elf, a dwarf, a

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
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 the dialogues and the refined, archaic-ish writing style, I find it perfect for the epic fantasy genre. The little cameos and the humorous parts were also really enjoyable. The plot was even more interesting than that of Dragons of Autumn Twilight, I guess mostly because it involved less main characters rather than a whole bunch of them, including some I personally never grew to care about.

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
The titular twins Caramon and Raistlin stole my heart in the original trilogy. Caramon, brave, good, honest and completely devoted to his twin brother. Raistlin, bitter, brilliant, evil on first sight but oddly (but convincingly) compessionate at key moments... they are fascinating. This book hints at ways to see their complex relationship that makes these characters eve ...more
I'm not sure how I feel about the first book in the series. In some ways the writing is better than that in chronicles (the authors have now written 4 books and you can see them improving as craftsmen) but at the same time, ther ...more
But if I know this: if I've had to replace a book from over-reading, that's amazing. I've had to replace these 6 books so many times that I keep spare copies around just in case. True story.
