"Still Good, but narration got weaker"
The final book of the Chronicles of Dragon Lance. The Final battles of Good and Evil. It will end here, for good or ill, for at least most of the companions of our D&D tale. The War of the Lance completes. Magic, sneaking, spying, War, interpersonal conflicts, conflicts of morality and of the soul all in this book. It is still a great story even after all these years.
The narration however seemed to weaken. Characters and statements that should have been said with strength almost seem whiny. The narration itself is decent, but it feels as if the narrator did not take the time to consider the situation and the emotions behind the situation and instead just read the book. The characters even didn't have as much distinction between them as they did in the first and second books.
"Writing is better, performance is still flat"
You can tell that Weis and Hickman have learned a lot about writing as you get into the third book of the series, and it no longer reads likes notes from a D&D playing session. Still not what I would call good writing, but written well enough now not to be distracting and discordant like the first book was. The story is still a little weak and a little too plot heavy, but good enough.
The performance is still awful and flat. There seems to be more dialog and there is a little life there, but the exposition still cannot be distinguished from a flat computer voice enunciating the text.
"Best Fantasy Series Ever"
Raistlin is the greatest anti-hero! I have read many fantasy series and I always come back to this one! Thank you Margaret Weis & Tracey Hickman!
"3rd time reading this trilogy."
great series, some of my all time favorite books. i became emotionally attached to the characters.
Loved it. Being a fan of Dungeons & Dragons I have always wanted to read this story. Now I have and it was woth it!
"love this trilogy"
I have loved these books for 30 years now. I have read and listened to the series so much I can relate the story to you if I didn't have the book on me. dragonlance is an awsome series of close to 200 books of which I have 120 in my collection. and in that I've only come across 3 that where just to slow to continue.
completely enjoyed this conclusion to a very entertaining trilogy. it was sad to watch it end.
"Awesome trilogy, never gets old."
Probably the 8th time I have read the series, and won't be the last!! I would highly recommend this to anyone.
Good book, but the weakest freon the Chronicles trilogy. Same scenes got me now as when I was young.
This is a great finish to a trilogy, I really liked the storyline. Dragons are a mythical creature yet stir the mind with imagination and never ending dreams.
