Product Description

From Amazon

The legendary team of Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman take to the sky on dragonback again with the final dispatch from their latest voyage to the land of Krynn in the War of Souls trilogy. In volume two, Dragons of a Lost Star, the mysterious "One God" behind the irrepressible Mina's miraculous rise to power is revealed. Yes, Dark Queen Takhisis is up to her old tricks. This time, however, she has stolen the entire planet of Krynn and hidden it away from her fellow deities. Now, she is seeking to bring the entire populace (both the living and the dead) under her fickle sway through Mina's zealous proselytizing. Who will stop her dark quest? Who else? The troublemaking and time-traveling kender--Tasslehoff Burrfoot.

Unfortunately, with the mystery of the "One God" revealed, much of the narrative impetus that made the first two books page-turners is lost. However, while there isn't much left to write about in Dragons of a Vanished Moon, the scenery is beautiful. There is an Elven exodus across the "plains of dust," stubborn Solamnic knights, cunning dragons, plotting wizards, and a full helping of Kender antics as Tasselhoff assumes the role of fly in the dark queen's ointment. The conclusion is a textbook deus ex machina but fans should enjoy this book for what it is--another chance to return to the wonderful world of Krynn with its two most competent guides at the helm. --Jeremy Pugh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

The One God Takhisis has pulled a fast one and vanquished the other gods of Krynn to a place unknown in this fast-paced conclusion to the War of the Souls trilogy (Dragons of a Fallen Sun; Dragons of a Lost Star). Through the warrior princess Mina, Takhisis (aka the Dark Queen) pretends to do good, heal the sick and comfort the afflicted in her scheme to take over the world. Takhisis's most feared foe turns out to be a kender, Tasslehoff Burrfoot, who possesses the Device of Time Journeying, an instrument that could smash all Takhisis's ambitions with a single push of a button. As Mina takes over city after city, adding more souls to her dread troop, her opponents frantically try to figure out ways to stop her. The Solamnic Knights send one man, Sir Gerard, to spy on Mina by passing him off as a Dark Knight. The elves of Qualinest and Silvanost find common cause in the fight against the Dark Queen, while in a strange twist of allegiances, the dragons of Krynn realize that their survival depends on allying themselves with mortals which they do with cunning and stealth. At Sanction, all the players come together in a mighty battle to save Krynn and restore the world to its proper balance. Bestselling authors Weis and Hickman have made another admirable addition to the history, lore and ways of Krynn, including a set of useful endnotes to bring newcomers up to speed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engrossing and richly developed May 25 2004
By Matthew
Format:Hardcover
(Review based on the trilogy) It took me a few chapters to become hooked, perhaps more than most books seasoned with thick prose. The language of the author was very eloquent, but almost different. Without being hyperbolic, it was a bit like reading Shakespear in that you must find the rhythm of the writer, but when you do it comes to you in a natural and pleasant fashion.
The characters, especially Mina, are multi-faceted and well-developed throughout the trilogy. I mention Mina because it is tempting to see her initially as flat and unidimensional. But she is not. To demonstrate this, most readers will find themselves rooting for her and fearing her simultaneously. By the end of the trilogy you're concept of her will take another, quite unexpected turn - sympathy or pity. (You'll have to find out why).
I bought this compulsively from a HB bargain bin and it sat on my shelf for more than a year and finally read it when I got bored. I missed out. This has become one of my favorite series and I am willing to try other series from Weis.
This was well worth the purchase and serious fantasy fans should try it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best of the trilogy May 25 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I worked through the first two books of this trilogy and it took me a while. They were easy books to take a break from. In fact, after volume two I read four other books before I came back for volume three. This one though, is much better. I read it in three sittings and it left me wanting more. Finally there is more action than talk, more direction than repetitious dialogue and themes. In the other books I could tell what was going to happen, how the battles would go, but in this book I didn't know what was going to happen next and I love that.
No it isn't as good as any of the books in the chronicles or legends, but it ain't that far off. Weis and Hickman juggle many characters, and they do it well bringing many of them together for a final climatic moment which was enjoyable.
This book saved the trilogy for me, and I was getting ready to give up on the future of Dragonlance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Square Wheels Work! March 4 2004
By Nimrod
Format:Mass Market Paperback
What Weis and Hickman had done is like re-enventing the wheel: The same principle, although not as good, and you find yourself asking "why?".
These two marvelous authros had taken their 'Chronicles' and 'Legends' round wheels off their Dragonlance wagon, and replaced them with square ones. Surprisingly, they're working. True, the ride isn't as smooth and fun, and it's sometimes bumpy, but it's moving. What makes this series a good ride is especially the amazing tallent of story-telling that the authors have. The cahrectres are good, but not as good as the original Dragonlance heroes. The plot is nice, but I prefer the Chronicles, and I liked the old Krynn better.
I enjoyed this series, I really did. I read it without a break between the books, and I've read in any possible moment, just like the old Weis and Hickman books. I laughed, I was sad and I felt good and bad with and for the characters, like in any other W&H book. However, as fun as it was, it's not as good as the originals. I'm taking these wheels off my wagon and return to my old, round, favorite ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars GROWTH IS A GOOD THING....NO ? Feb. 7 2004
By Manuel
Format:Mass Market Paperback
WAR OF THE SOULS WAS A GREAT SERIES...YES THE STORY LINE WAS DIFFERENT...HAS WHERE SOME OF THE CHARACTERS, WHO SEEMED OUT OF LINE...BUT THAT WAS THE STORY LINE. ALL THE NEW PEOPLE ADDED TO THE WORLD WE HAVE COME TO LOVE AND ADORE, ONLY HELPED IN THE EXPANDING OF "OUR" WORLD ON KYRNN. THINK ABOUT IT IF YOU WILL.....HOW MANY MORE BOOKS DO YOU WANT OF RASTLIN, TANIS AND THAT LITTLE KENDER. THINGS CHANGE, HELL YOU AND I HAVE CHANGED HOW MANY TIMES IN OUR OWN LIVE TIME. I CAN WAIT TO SEE WHERE WE GO FROM HERE, I TRUELY BELIEVE THE NEXT SERIES WILL BE OFF THE CHART. IF YOU DID NOT GET, OR UNDERSTAND THE WAR OF SOULS SERIES....I SUGGEST...AND I MEAN THIS WITH ALL MY HEART...REMOVE YOUR BACK SIDE FROM THE ABYSS...OPEN YOUR MIND AND RE-READ IT FOR WHAT IT TRUELY IS...NOT WHAT YOU WHERE EXPECTING AND YOU WILL GROW TO LOVE THE STORIES.

1.0 out of 5 stars wish there was a zero star option Feb. 5 2004
Format:Hardcover
This book was written to correct the disaster that is Dragons of Summer Flame, nothing more nothing less. Funny how those who made Krynn magical were the same ones to utterly destroy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Feb. 4 2004
By ilmk
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The final part of the War of Souls trilogy finds Tas and Conundrum escaping the clutches of Mina and discovering that there is a past.
It finds Gilthas undergoing his own soul searching and deciding to lead his people to Silvanesti via the Plains of Dust.
It finds Silvanoshei continuing his inexprable march to doom.
It finds Gerard and Odila desperately trying to find a way out of the darkness.
It finds Palin and Dalamar working from beyond death.
It finds Malys, Razor and Mirror deciding the fate of dragonkind.
It finds the Gods back in Krynn for a titanic battle.
And, above all, it finds us a conclusion fitting to this epic world.
The fourth Age builds to its tremendous climax as elves, ogres, minotaurs, dragons, humans, gods and the souls of the dead all gather at Sanction for a final terrible battle where the balance is restored and the Book of Judgement of Gilean finally gives us the solution to Takhisis' attempt to rule Krynn once and for all.
The final volume in the fourth age of Krynn, the final volume before the Age of Mortals can begin, is a rich tapestry of love and war, heroes and villains set against a wonderful struggling backdrop of life and death, of magic and mortaility woven in a truly breathless manner by the undisputed current masters of fantasy, Weis and Hickman.
This book, this trilogy, the entire world of Krynn and its heroes that has been created deserves six stars and beyond and any fan of the fantasy genre must have this on their bookshelves.
