While the Chronicles are good in their own why the Legends series is just that much better. The three books in the series focus mainly on the characters of Caramon and Raistlin Majere, two brothers who hate how devoted and or reliant they really are on each other. There is a lot more characterization in Tikme of the Twins and the other two books that come after than there was in the Chronicles. You really get a good look into not only the mind of the evil mage we've all come to know and love but his overly protective brother who slowly grows apart from him and of course the ever present mascot of the group Tas. Any Dragonlance fan would love this book and all the others in the series though I would say that reading the Chronicles first is a must to completely see how much the characters change and get an idea how much the relationships change as well.

Time of the Twins kicks off the Legends trilogy rather nicely. This trilogy in particular is very incomplete with just one book, as the each one either ends or starts with more information needed from the other two. It is unlike the Chronicles in that respect, as each of those books is a story within itself. However, as a whole, the Legends trilogy is great (perhaps better than the Chronicles), despite the whole "time-travel" thing being too much of the plot. The plot is better than average, and the characters and action of the trilogy are marvelous. If you enjoyed The Dragonlance Chronicles, and especially if you liked Raistlan Majere, then the Legends trilogy is a must-read.

If this first book of the Dragonlance Legends is any indication, this series won't be quite as good as DRAGONLANCE CHRONICLES. Not that I didn't enjoy reading this book...it was thoroughly enjoyable. It just wasn't as gripping as the first series. I found it very difficult to put down any of those three books. With this one, it was no big deal to me to put the book down when it was time to go to bed. This book focuses more on the characters than on the adventure. Don't get me wrong, there is plenty of adventure to go around. It's just that Weis and Hickman seem to be focusing more on the characters of Caramon and Raistlin and their relationship to each other than on how many bad guys they can wade through. In this book, Caramon begins to realize just how evil his brother really is. We see him in denial and, as the book progresses, we seem him slowly come to realize how far beyond redemption Raistlin is. Aside from these two main characters, we also get to see Tasslehoff mature as a character. We see how truly devoted he is to his friends and that he does have a deep sense of commitment to those he calls his friends. The adventure side was neat, even if it wasn't the true focus of the book. We get a good look at Istar before the Cataclysm and the events that led up to it. Very intriguing. If you've read the CHRONICLES, this will definitely be an enjoyable read for you. If not, I suggest you read those three books (DRAGONS OF AUTUMN TWILIGHT, DRAGONS OF WINTER NIGHT, and DRAGONS OF SPRING DAWNING) first.
