5.0 out of 5 stars The most envisioning fantasy book of the decade. May 24 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Firstborn takes place before the popular events of the Dragonlance saga, respectively about 1,000 years fictional time before the series' focal points, the Majere Twins, Tanis Half-Elven, The second Cataclysm, etc. The book's literary genius is found in its ability to render classical romance and youthful intrigue so quickly, the romantics never complicated but desirably easy to relate to. This is the book that I would recommend any new fantasy reader to first touch down upon, but better yet a way for experienced fantasy readers to find for themselves a remnant of classical fantasy, by no means nostalgia however. A+

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the better Dragonlance books... Nov. 12 2002
By D. Pachal - Published on
"Firstborn" is definately one of the better Dragonlance books out there. It is very slow during the beginning. Most of the book drags on, but the good thing is that it goes by quickly. The book isn't long, only around 300 pages. But the ending gets a lot better and sets up for much more action to come.
The book starts out with the birth of Kith-Kanan and Sithas. Sithas being the firstborn is destined to be the next Speaker of the Stars. The brothers have a bond that is almost unbreakable, and a love that is true. But when Kith does something that angers his family, he flees and meets friends in the outer woods. Here, he learns that life isn't the same as it is in the city of Silvanost. But, in desperate situations, Sithas calls his brother back to Silvanost and events begin to unfold that are beyond either of the twin's control.
While the book does start out slow, it is good enough to keep you reading. It is full of intrigue that most Dragonlance books are lacking in. I have read almost all of the DL books out there, and I can rate this one near the top of the list. If you can find it, it is a definate must!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is my favorite Dragonlance book yet! June 30 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Being the owner of 41 Dragonlance books and having read them all, Firstborn is my favorite. It was written verry well, and is verry discriptive. I dont want to give any of the story away, so you must read it. But at any rate it is the best Dragonlance book yet!

Great book! Thompson and Carter have outdone themselves. This first installment gives great insight into Krynnish Elven History. Wonderfully done.
5.0 out of 5 stars *VOLUME ONE IN THE ELVEN NATIONS TRILOGY* July 4 1998
By A Customer - Published on
This is the first book of three of the Elvens Nations Trilogy. "The Kinslayer Wars" follows, and then the third volume, "The Qualinesti". We are taken to and from the homeland of the firstborn race of Krynn, the Silvanesti Elves. It begins with the birth of two royal twins, Sithas and Kith-Kanan. Sithas, the elder by three minutes, will inherit the throne when his father, the ruler of the elves called the Speaker of the Stars, passes away. The two twins are very close, but a marriage arrangement forces Kith-Kanan, (the main character) to flee Silvanesti and into the wilds. We are taken on a wild ride as Kith-Kanan's adventures twist and turn. Overall, this book is very enveloping and worth purchasing. You are shown breath-taking beauty mixed with pain, and the characters are very well-planned and described. It involves you completely, you begin to care for characters and hurt when they hurt, as few books really can do. You are so blended with the stories you will have to buy the other two books to sate your elven thirst! ~Miss Lauren
