How does a meeting of a small group of companions separated by fate erupt into a mystical, wondrous tale of magic, heroes and evil? Eight heroic companions on the world of Krynn were created by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman, and they did a wonderful job of continuing the DragonLance tale.
The tale begins in Solace, in the Inn of the Last Home, with the characters slowly coming into the building to meet once again. They share stories with a mysterious old man and two plainspeople, Goldmoon and Riverwind, who turn out to be very civil.
I really enjoyed this tale, because it is full of mysteries and suspenseful events that will keep you interested and wanting to read more. Once you begin the book, you won't want to put it down until you find out what happens to Tanis Half-Elven and his friends.
Tanis and his friends reunite at the inn of the last home in Solace, meet two mystical people and embark on a quest for knowledge which becomes a life threatening struggle for the disks of life, mystical artifacts of healing, which are guarded by a dark dragon minion under the influence of Verminaard Dragonbane.
This is a great book, but there are two parts that I don't like.
If there was a backstory explaining the journey and lives of the characters, it would be a lot easier to understand. Also, the ending leaves you hanging on to what will happen to the companions so that you have to go out and buy the next sequel.
