"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".

You know I really got the feeling that Don Perrin was the one that wrote this and Margaret Weis just helped her hubby out by skimming through it and sticking her name on it. I don't know if this is true, but The Doom Brigade wasn't the best Weis work I've ever read. And the reason for that was the last fifty or so pages, for some reason no DL book has been able to keep my attention through out the whole novel as of late. They are all just so simple, and so non-surprising!
But let's start at the beginning. It was good, that's about all I can ever say about a non-mainstream DL book lately too. Good characters (I loved the dwarves, they were great), fight scenes were skillfully done. The author(s) did a good job filling you in on the Draconians past since the War of the Lance. And it had a well thought out plot.
But at the end this all falls apart. After the Treasure race beginnings, the book gets pretty darn boring; it turns into a race plain and simple. The Draconians are ahead, but then the dwarves do something clever, but then the Dracos are back, no the just started to annoy me and I kept on saying 'just find the stupid treasure all ready!'
Final Thought: You know because it has Margaret Weis on the cover that sooner or later you are going to read it, just don't expect anything as good as the Legends or the Chronicles.

this is a truly funny and touching story about a bunch of most unlikely beings. The draconians are great, and you'd most probably be rooting for them right from the start. However, i wonder if anyone noticed that the plot for this book is almost identical to that of another, more famous book? i'm referring to < Watership Down >, that "rabbit" book. ^_^ even the characters are similar. eg. Kang, obviously = Hazel ;Slith = Blackberry/Dandelion also, the situation the draconians are in is so similar to that of the rabbits! both are unable to continue their race due to lack of females. in <the doom brigade>, Kang leads a band of followers to a hostile place to try and retrieve the females. as did Hazel in <watership down>. they both suffered similar losses after their first attempt to leave the warren/village. both Kang and Hazel recieved a "vision" to help defeat their enemies, the fire dragons and woundwort respectively, via Huzzard and Fiver. both of them suffered when they singlehandedly try to attempt a great feat. Hazel ended up in a drain, while Kang got trapped under a load of rock.... the draconians decided to leave the army after deciding that it was a lost cause; the rabbits decided to leave the sandleford warren because Fiver felt that the warren was doomed... the similarities are endless.
but even so, this is a fine book, which all dragonlance fans should have on their shelves. you might also want to grab a copy of <Watership Down> as well. ^__^

After looking at the front of the book and reading the back, I was a little skeptic about how good it was. My first thought was, " how are these big, stupid lizards actually surviving on Krynn? I thought they all died out during the War of the Lance." So after I read all my other new books I read this one out of boredom and idle curiosity. It turned out to be the best of the books I had recieved. Not only does it provide a deep look at the loyalty, intelligence and uniformity of the draconians, it also expresses how the weight of despair sits on them. And since it does take place in the Chaos War, Kang(commander of the draconians) eventually leads his troops to against someone other than the dwarfs at about 3/5 of the way through the book. The book starts out with the dwarfs peacefully attacking the draconian village. Apparently, the two races have worked out a mutual agreement; something like, "if you don't kill us we won't kill you." Anyway, a dwarf in the dwarven settlement across the valley from the draconians gets hold of a journal with a map. The journal describes a Deawar journey to find a great storeroom full of Highlord treasure. This party of Daewar also found draconian eggs that housed female draconians. The whole story sort of hinges on those eggs because only male draconians were hatched to fight for the Dark Queen. I'll let you read the book to find out what happens next.=)
