This volume is probably the best of the Legends trilogy, although I don't believe in separating the trilogy in the first place (it was written to be read as a whole). This book has does depend a lot on the other two of course, as we are left with a beginning that starts where another book left off, and we are left ending in a cliffhanger. But this book is still probably the meatiest third of the Legends trilogy, which is particularly incomplete with just one book, as 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 Raistlin Majere, then the Legends trilogy is a must-read.

(Dragonlance Legends, Book 2)This book continues the character development of Caramon and Raistlin that the authors started in TIME OF THE TWINS. This book digs even deeper into their personalities and their relationship with each other. We see Caramon coming to terms with who his brother really is and what he represents. We see him wrestling with his love for his brother and his sense of what is right. In Raistlin, Weis and Hickman pull the reader in different directions, never letting them know if Raistlin is pure evil or if there is actually some good in him. This is where they excel...they provide the reader with vivid characters that have multiple dimensions to their personality. Like the first book, there isn't a deluge of action. It is the characters that drive this story. Their joys, their pains, their worries are all what give the book it's feeling and it's purpose. The action is simply a backdrop against which the author's develop these two characters. One thing I missed in this book was Tasslehoff. He didn't play much of a part until the end. After seeing so much of him in the first book, his absence was definitely noticeable. All in all, this is a very good book to read if you're a fan of Dragonlance. If not, then I suggest you go back and read the CHRONICLES first. You'll have a greater appreciation for this series if you do.
