Book Description

April 1 2000 Dragonlance Chronicles (Book 2)
Now the people know that the dragon minions of Takhisis, Queen of Dragons, have returned. The people of all nations prepare to fight to save their homes, their lives, and their freedom. But the races have long been divided by hatred and prejudice. Elven warriors and human knights fight among themselves. It seems the battle has been lost before it begins.

The companions are separated, torn apart by war. A full season will pass before they meet again--if they meet again. As the darkness deepens, a disgraced knight, a pampered elfmaiden, and a rattle-brained kender stand alone in the pale winter sunlight.

Not much in the way of heroes.

Product Description

From Amazon

Dragons of Autumn Twilight sets 'em up, and Dragons of Winter Night knocks 'em down. The second volume in Dragonlance's seminal trilogy stokes the action with a big ol' blast of dragon breath. The War of the Lance has begun in earnest, and the Companions--Tanis, Flint, the twins Raistlin and Sturm, Flint Fireforge, Goldmoon, et al.--find themselves separated across Ansalon. Everyone's figured out that Takhisis's dragon minions aren't just scary bedtime stories, and the desperate search for the Dragon Orbs and the mythical Dragonlance is on. Lots of great combat, some humor and romance sprinkled in, and more solid character development for this complex band (especially Tanis and Laurana). An excellent follow-up bookended by cliffhangers--check out Dragons of Spring Dawning to see what happens next. --Paul Hughes

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff Nov. 4 2003
Format:Hardcover
Dragons of a Winter night was probably the best one out of the series. It seems to me, this book was a little more thought out than Dragons of Autumn Twilight. The Character's personalities where brought out more and instead of a hack and slash, runaway action-adventure novel, it was a hack and slash, runaway, emotional, Melodramatic action-adventure novel, which are my favorite type of stories to read.
The book highlights were that of the character's Sturm, Laurana, Kitara, Tanis (not until the end half) and of course, Raistlin. I didn't like and sometimes was annnoyed by Sturm's character in the first book, but Sturm's character shined in this book. The Love affair with Alhana and the trial in Solamia where some of the best parts of the book.
Not a tough read, but a lot O' sub-plots going on here and it can get a little confusing if you haven't read the first book. But if you have and didn't like it, read this book because it's a fun story and what else are you going to do? If your reading this your not doing anything, so go read this book and enjoy........For me?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Chill of Winter Sept. 17 2003
By Vilbs
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The second installment of the now classic Chronicles Trilogy picks up shortly after the events detailed in "The Dragons of Autumn Twilight". The second volume shows the companions scattered across the continent of Ansalon, with each member battling personal demons as well as the minions of Takhisis. The parties search desperately for weapons to use against the spreading evil such as the dragon orbs and the legendary dragonlance, and throughout the novel Weiss and Hickman continue to develop their memorable cast.
The climax of the novel is one of the most vivid scenes in the entire Dragonlance saga, as Sturm Brightblade and a paltry force of loyal Knights defend the High Clerists tower against overwhelming forces. The increasingly powerful Raistlin Majere dangerously flirts with darkness, and Tanis is torn between beautiful women, one of darkness and one of the light.
"The Dragons of Winter Night" is a worthy successor to Chronicles Vol. 1, and is easily the darkest of the three novels. Fans of fantasy should be well pleased, and the Dragonlance series is a great way for younger readers to become introduced to the genre.

3.0 out of 5 stars great when I was 15 and immature. But now... Sept. 6 2003
Format:Hardcover
STORY: As one editorial review put it: "The second volume in Dragonlance's seminal trilogy stokes the action with a big ol' blast of dragon breath. The War of the Lance has begun in earnest, and the Companions--Tanis, Flint, the twins Raistlin and Sturm, Flint Fireforge, Goldmoon, et al.--find themselves separated across Ansalon. Everyone's figured out that Takhisis's dragon minions aren't just scary bedtime stories, and the desperate search for the Dragon Orbs and the mythical Dragonlance is on."
MY FEEDBACK:
Back in my days of playing the pencil & paper version of AD&D you always had two kinds of players:
1) The players that just ran into everything killing and asking questions later (lots of action)
2)The other extreme of those that wanted to think everything through leading to an hour discussion just to make one single decision.
This book was like the first group of players. Lots of action but it lacked the balance of thinking things through or a true build up of suspense.
Every character (and it felt like "every" one of them) had a level of pride to the point of everyone was wanted to fight whenever they felt slightly insulted. Each scene seemed a repeat of the previous one where someone would get offended, then it would require a comrade having to hold them back...this got tiring after a while.
If the authors were really trying to portray such prideful characters realistically then the story would not logically have progressed because of so many egos at work then no decisions would be made.
Good thing for us the authors take some obvious stereotypes and just keep them moving whether we believe they would or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Profound and full of surprises March 18 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The middle child of a trilogy has the most tenuous position. After all, the novelty may have worn off after the first installment, and the big ending doesn't come until the next. Many are relegated to serve as simply a bridge between the first and third installment. Dragons of Winter Night defies stereotypes with its gripping storyline filled with many tense sequences and surprising revelations. True to the title, the mood is considerably darker than in the first book, ending with the heroic sacrifice of one of the main characters. Sadness is a powerful emotion, and the ending features one of the most emotionally moving scenes I can recall since Tolkien. Yet there is beauty in tragedy, and having known the ending, I wouldn't have it any other way.
As DoWN begins, the refugees from Pax Tharkas have found a temporary home, albeit one ill-suited for them, in the kingdom of the mountain dwarves. The companions prepare to embark on their next quest, to the ancient great city Tarsis the Beautiful, in search of a better refuge. Little do they know that evil forces are already following their tracks and laying a trap for them. Events in Tarsis would force the companions to split into two groups, each searching for an ancient artifact that allows the wielder to exert control over dragons. Their adventures would take them to distant lands, fraught with dark mystery and danger. Some of the companions will have grown in power, some in knowledge, some in maturity, and some would find love along the way. In a sense, the wide-eyed innocence of the first volume has worn off. As the characters gain experience, their worries and sorrows also increase. Laurana is a case in point. She has changed greatly since leaving Qualinost.
