Book Description

March 1 1998 The Chaos War Series
War can get a fellow killed.

The fearless draconians of the War of the Lance have retired from the field of battle to a pleasant valley in the Kharolis Mountains. Well, it would be pleasant, if it weren't for some dwarves, whose irritating feuding prevents the draconians from realizing their greatest hope -- the ability to continue their doomed race.

When the dwarves discover a map leading to a fortune buried in the dwarven kingdom of Thorbardin, the draconians are swept up in a feverish race for treasure. Little do both sides realize that they are part of the strange and terrible destiny descending upon Krynn during the Summer of Flame.

A desinty that includes the children of Chaos . . . the fire dragons!

The Doom Brigade is the first installment in The Chaos War series, stories set during the war of the Dragons of Summer Flame, the New York Times best-selling novel co-authored by Margaret Weis.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun adventure Sept. 5 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A book centered on Margaret Weis. You're joking right? Not at all. This book will change your entire opinion on the little known race of dragon men. And when you mix aggresive draconian warriors and scheming dwarves, you know there will be some laugh out loud moments. Through everything Weis and Perrin manage to string together an engaging plot with fun well-developed characters. Unfortunately there are some proofreading/editing mistakes (more than in any other book I've read). But it doesn't really get in the way. This book won't change your life, but it is guaranteed to entertain.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book!!! Oct. 7 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
There're 2 gruops I love reading about(besides the main ones I mean.): Gully Dwarfs & these Draconians.
These writers bring so much character to these guys it's impossible not to like Kang & his men! I hope there's more stories written about them.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Doom Brigade May 27 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"The Doom Brigade" by the husband and wife team of Margaret Weis and Don Perrin features the life and times of an eccentric group of Draconians during the same time period as "Dragons of Summer Flame". These draconians have made a small little settlement, and have managed to live a reletively peaceful life in the mountains. They only have to deal with a dwarf raid every once in a while.
The authors of this book do an amazing job portraying Draconians as more than just the killers they were portrayed like in the first Dragonlance books. It is nice to read a book from their point of view, seeing exactly what they feel and think about the other races on Krynn.
This books has an amazing storyline, and is full of enuogh action and adventure to keep any fantasy reader hooked. There is tons of humor in this book. All of the characters have their own personality which is nice to see. The main characters in this book, including Kang (the lead Draconian), and his right hand man..err..Draconian, Slith, are all nicely developed and portrayed well.
The story and characters keep this book a fun read all the way though. It is one of the better books in the Dragonlance world. Not only are the characters fun to read about, but it is also fun to read from the other side for once. Seeing the story through the eyes of Draconians and not through the eyes of the "Good Guys".

4.0 out of 5 stars Its a war out there, try not to get killed! May 23 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
All I can say is "action packed". This book was amazing, at some times I found that I could'nt put it down! Also this book was amazingly writen, the way the authers switched from one enemy to the next is different but it works. I love how they can sometimes switch the Draconians to the Dwarves with out an introduction of whats going on but somehow you already know whats ging on and sometimes whats going to happen. The discriptions in this book are extrordanary! Fantacy lovers or not this book will rock your world!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Action packed May 23 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was an amazing book. I had trouble puting it down at times and at other time I couldn't wait to put it down. The authers discribe both enemies in the book very well, for an instance each chapter or two the theme would switch from Draconians to Dwarves. So you could get quite a good view from both persectives. I find that at action parts in the book (the best parts) I suddenly become full of energy and have to let it out.
This book will rock your world Fantacy lovers or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantabulous!! March 21 2002
By Raven
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I picked this book up at the book store just to add it to my collection and thought nothing of it, I didnt think it would be very good. But then I started reading the book, at first I was skeptical, then I really started to get into it. This book was amazing and I never wanted to put it down. I loved the characters, I never thought I would like draconians, I just thought of them as the gross blood-thirsty lizard men, but now I know that they are just like every other creature on Krynn. Once I finished the book I wanted more, I couldnt wait to read the second book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Fantasy Novel Ever: The Doom Brigade Nov. 9 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book has to be the best book I've ever read. The action is fast
paced, and always holds your attention. The concept of using old
villains as heroes is a clever twist. The once considered evil
draconians are so human in their emotions and thoughts, it's hard to
think of them as evil at all. The dwarves are also quite easy to connect
to and are fun to follow. The fire dragons of Chaos are unique villians
as they have no emotion and, therefore, are easy to fear the cold
emptiness. The unique feel makes this an excellent book.
