I have read the Dragonlance Series since I was a little girl. Being 22, I believe I have read Chronicles over 15 times. I read it once every year. "Dragons of Autumn Twilight" is an excellent leap into the vast world of Krynn, introducing you to characters, races, gods and all other complicated aspects of fantasy in an easy, seamless way. The original cover art by Larry Elmore is by far the most moving. My favorite Character has always been Laurana for her ever evolving personality.

I highly reccomend this book, as well as the original artwork by Larry Elmore. There are so many more paintings that bring this novel to life.

The Dragonlance Saga was my first experience of the fantasy world. Dragons of Autumn Twilight started my lust for everything Dragonlance, fantasy and role-playing. I will never forget thumbing through the pages of Autumn Twilight, entranced by the world unfolding in my minds eye. Reading each word carefully, like the suspense for the next page was unbearable but I wanted to savor the moment. Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman, by far the best fantasy authors I've ever had the pleasure to adventure with. Thank you.

I lost count on the amount of times I read the Chronicles. The books of Dragonlance takes you away to Krynn, they let you explore a world with a group of mismatched people and yet the are keept together by their loyalty and friendships. When you read it for the first time, it seems that Weis and Hickman is always one step ahead. The result of this is a brilliant character development and plot. I often see people talk about their favorite character, I simply can't choose one in all fairness they are all great.

I think I first read the books at the age of 14-15 about 10-12 years ago, I didn't like Sturm that much in the begining, but I have come to understand and love his sacrifices. Like much else about these books, they seem to grow with you each time you read them, I still feel the sorrow and I still laugh at the things that happens in the books. So if your a newcomer to the world of Dragonlance, I hope you get the same joy out of these books as I did, I hope that one day my kids will read them and have the same joy from them as I did.

I can not believe what I have been missing out on! My friend gave me these books to read as we both like the fantasy genre. When I first saw the Collectors Edition I quailed at the sheer size of it, I soon learned how you can NOT put the Chronicles down. No matter how much pain my arms were in from holding the thing up I found it impossible to stop reading! I especially liked the character of Raistlin Majere because I think he represents a little bit of all of us, the popularity of his character arises from his evil. We all need a character in a book that we can hate and I dont know if that was the authors' idea but I actually liked Raistlin, and I cant wait to read more about him and his daughter.

Have you ever wondered if perhaps something is not quite right in the world? These intrepid adventurers in this novel did. This book really taught me to always answer my curiosity. Perhaps that gut feeling really is based on something real. The curiosity of one mage in this story uncovers an evil plot formulated by the dark queen herself. Now these adventurers have to wonder if their curiosity is worth their lives.

Dragons of the Dark Queens Dragon army have once again been unleashed on Krynn, along with an unstoppable force. These forces, lead by mysterious Dragon Highlords, are bent on the irradication of all that is good. But heroes rise to the occasion. Old friends, Knights, Clerics, Magicians and Elves once again bind together to fight the tide of darkness. Can these few remaining heroes survive, or will the fragments left of hope be scattered to the four winds? Will age-old enemies ever heal the wounds between them? Are the ancient Dragon Orbs the answer or is this the end of the Ancient gods?

This is a story about how a band of old friends travel through the land in search of the Dragon orbs, mysterious orbs of immense power, and Dragonlances, forged to defeat the dragons of evil. Unfortunately, the party gets separated in a run-in with the Dragon armies. This is the story of a Kender, a dwarf, a half-elf, two mysterious twins, a Solamnic Knight and two plainspeoples adventures through the harsh times of the
War of the Lance.

Now wasnt that foreshadowing? If you are curious at all as to the fate of Krynn, read Dragons of Winter Night. This book is a little gory, so I recommend it to young adult readers. This book is great because of the clever way it is written, switching back and forth between the storylines. I think the author really does a great job of making you feel like you are actually there by telling every detail, to switching points of view.

Two thumbs up from me! Please remember that this is the second in the Dragonlance Chronicles, not the first. I really suggest reading them in order. And remember that none should force you to read a book. You should stop if the book isnt to interesting.
