This is by far the best book of the Preludes. Granted, the brothers Raistlin and Caramon are strong personas in their own right, but the author manages to stay quite true to their characters - some liberties have been taken but then this is pre-Chronicles so they're supposed to be younger - I think the author succeeded on achieving a good balance of love and animosity between the brothers. The plot itself is intriguing - more a mystery-to-solve than a typical fantasy quest-type adventure, giving it a feel somewhat akin to Sherlock Holmes. The supporting characters are mostly well-crafted and interesting, leaving it till close to the end before the true villains unmask themselves.
