Lifelong friends, they went their separate ways. Now they are together again, though each holds secrets from the others in his heart. They speak of a world shadowed with rumors of war. They speak of tales of strange monsters, creatures of myth, creatures of legend. They do not speak of their secrets. Not then. Not until a chance encounter with a beautiful, sorrowful woman, who bears a magical crystal staff, draws the companions deeper into the shadows, forever changing their lives and shaping the fate of the world. No one expected them to be heroes. Least of all, them.… (lisätietoja)

Good, cleanly written fantasy. Truly stands out amongst the plethora of fantasy fluff that was being mass produced in the 80s and 90s. The characters are well written and the writers have a gift for instilling emotion in them. ( )

{First published of 190+ Dragonlance Chronicles. Fantasy, D&D, sword & sorcery} (1984)

This book was written in 1984 to accompany the Dungeons and Dragons game franchise that Laura and Tracy Hickman created for TSR. When the initial draft was unsatisfactory, Tracy Hickman and Weis wrote the book themselves. The novel is divided into Book 1, where the heroes leave Solace on a new quest and Book 2, where they return to Solace but leave again, having gained some new comrades.

The story begins on the continent of Ansalon on the world of Krynn with six friends (Tanis - a half-elf, Flint - a dwarf, Tas - a kender and three humans, Raistlin - a mage, Caramon (his twin brother) - a warrior and Sturm - a Knight of Solamnia) returning to their home village of Solace, as agreed, after five years when they went out to explore the post Cataclysmic world. We aren't told much about the Cataclysm but it seems to have been caused by humans denying the old gods. The friends discover that Solace, which is a village built up in the trees (I love the idea) has now been taken over by Seekers, who are looking for new gods and, due to the interference of a strange old man, end up antagonising the militia in charge and have to escape from Solace, along with two Plains-people, Goldmoon and Riverwind, before even having a chance to return to their homes.

The eight are given the power to save the world.

The heroes discover that the Queen of Darkness has returned to Krynn, bringing red dragons of legend back with her and draconians, the winged, reptilian-like beings that serve them.

I saw the second two novels in my library around the time they were first published but not the first one so I never read them at the time but the series stayed in my awareness as I noticed further books in the series were published. The very beginning seems a bit clichéd and it doesn‘t expand on why the friends went on the journeys they are returning from, what they found or what they planned to do about it - we just get thrown straight into the adventure which they (and we) know nothing about, going in. (I suspect it could have initially been intended to set up the story, which then went in a different direction.)

The novel is a bit unpolished but I think it has to be taken in context of when (and why) it was written. It does seem to show its gaming roots at times (directions are always given in terms of one of the cardinal compass points and one of the quests is to recover some platinum Discs) though I've never played a D&D game. There are moments of romance but those felt a bit awkward to me. And I thought that a bit more girl-power would have been a good thing. However, since there are around 190 novels in the series (in English, never mind other languages) and they are still being written more than 37 years later (there's supposedly a trilogy due out later in 2021), I think the flaws must have been ironed out :0)

As an aside, Flint, the dwarf, seems to be the prototype for the portrayal of Gimli in the LOTR films; he's grumpy, gruff and kind-hearted, pretends to bicker with his friends and seems to be there to provide comic relief (including the scene where he falls head-first into the bottom of the boat).

I found the story a little slow but I'm willing to continue with the series because of its pedigree. I thought the writing and humour improved with Book 2 and there were even some laugh out loud moments.

Raistlin stood. “Know this!” the mage said, his golden eyes staring around the common room. “I have cast a spell upon our belongings. Anyone who touches them will be slowly devoured by the great worm, Catyrpelius, who will rise from the Abyss and suck the blood from your veins until you are nothing more than a dried husk.”

“The great worm Catyrpelius!” breathed Tasslehoff, his eyes shining. “That’s incredible. I’ve never heard of—”

Tanis clapped his hand over the kender’s mouth.

I read this book several years ago after receiving it as a gift. I started the second book, but for some reason never finished. Recently I decided to watch the movie based on this book. It was pretty good, not great, but it re-sparked my interest in the series, so I picked up book 2 and then finished the first and second trilogies in pretty short order. I decided to go back and read this again, now knowing how the story wraps up. I have to say that there are many clues as to what is coming, but those clues would be easily overlooked by a first time reader. I enjoyed this book even more the second time around, and highly recommend a re-read for anyone who has already been through the first trilogy. ( )

I read many of the Dragonlance books when they came out. Long experience with Dungeons and Dragons stood me well here. The authors have elevated the adventures to span several books with the original crew, plus and minus characters and they go. The hardest part explaining this is that few of the characters are 100 percent good or bad but often are seen in the "Chaotic Neutral" classification. Well written with lots of action and twists and turns. ( )
