Summary

Secrets of the past...

Although Raistlin and Caramon urge him not to go, Sturm Brightblade attends an annual Solamnic ceremony that is interrupted by...a stranger, taunting challenge. Clues from the past. Death.

Once he accepts a mysterious gauntlet, young Sturm must make a dangerous journey with some curious friends, rescue a fair if querulous maid, defeat a traitor knight, and learn the secret fate of his long-lost father. He must also learn the meaning of honor.

The fourth installment in the popular Meetings Sextet tells the story of Sturm Brightblade, the noble Solamnic Knight, in the years before Sturm joined up with the other companions of the best-selling Dragonlance series.

Too wierd

I've read 100+ Dragonlance books, and the vast majority of them are great, but this one seems a bit off story-wise. As a stand alone book it might have been okay, but ad it is book 4 in "meeting of the sextet" it seems out of place compared to the other books.
Just my opinion!

Hardly a page turner...

This is by far the most boring book in this series, so much so that I couldn’t even finish it before moving on to the next one which I hope is better.

Was an OK story

Never really connected with the character in the Dragonlance Wars trilogy and still felt that way with this. Interesting story but not as captivating as others I've gone through.
