Format: Paperback
I am going to review this trilogy as a whole because no one book stands out in my mind as being any better or worse than another. They were all equally terrible.
The three books, Dragonlord of Mystara, Dragonking of Mystara and Dragonlord of Mystara make up the 'Dragonlord Chronicles'. I should have been suspicious from the start given the obvious play upon the immensely popular and infinitely better concieved 'Dragonlance Chronicles' from the same publisher.
These books are set within the Dungeons and Dragons world of Mystara and chart the course of the cliched farm boy orphan of unknown parentage on his meteroic rise to his righteous destiny among the stars.
It could be reviewed in one of two ways, as a fantasy novel in its own right, or as a piece of the Mystara universe. Neither would be flattering. For a fan of the Mystara universe this book is an abomination, totally disregarding the world's established fan base and re-writing the history past, present and future of a much loved world. It adds nothing, nor appears to be derived from much resembling the world the fans know and love.
As a fantasy novel it relies greatly on cliche, we have the stoic Dwarf Fighter, the independant Amazon, the Wise Old Mentor and the Impressionable Do-No-Wrong Orphan Hero-Boy. That is about as far as the characterization goes. After ploughing through the entire trilogy I could tell you little else about the main characters. I could mention that they all 'talk' for the author, the unsurprising advancements of plot are simply revealed all too often in unbelieavable dialogue rather than revealed by events and actions. Likewise the character's thoughts and motivations are never revealed through action but always in a very clumsy monologue fashion.

HASH(0x98aecf48) out of 5 stars Not true to the Mystara "universe," but a good trilogy regardless Jan. 24 2011
By C. Boylan - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you come to this trilogy because you are interested in the Mystara world, you probably will get annoyed at the liberties the author took.

However, if you 1) like intelligent dragons as important characters (particularly in books 2 and 3), 2) don't mind some standard fantasy cliches (not especially bad here, really), and 3) are willing to let the books stand on their own (rather than as part of the Mystara mythos), then you'll probably like this series a lot. The plot relies on standard fantasy tropes, but the story actually goes in some fairly unexpected directions as the trilogy progresses. The series is considerably less derivative than it initially appears.


Regarding other reviewers' complaints:
-The main character's invincibility: Yes, the armor of the dragon lord does make the main character ridiculously powerful. However, that's kind of the point. The armor is built up in the story as granting incredible powers to fight dragons. Whether the main character gives up that awesome power is pivotal to the plot: he doesn't want to be vulnerable, but he doesn't want all dragons to fear him unreasonably, either. Also, in later books, he faces much higher odds, and comes close to death multiple times.
-Dragons' "personal space" issues: this trait is not handled as inconsistently as another reviewer said. This trait was very much a "personal space" (very close proximity) issue more than unthinking territoriality between dragons. On the whole, the author did a great job establishing dragons as intelligent beings, while still differentiating them from humans.


Overall, I've read a lot of fantasy novels, and while I wouldn't put this trilogy at the very top of the list, it was still quite good and completely worth my time. If you like fantasy novels about dragons, you could do a whole lot worse than the Dragonlord Chronicles.

HASH(0x98a57dc8) out of 5 stars A group of people who seek the reason of the dragon attacks. April 30 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
An epic story of a group of people from a Barbarien, Dwarf, Drake, and an un-known race who are trying to figure out why the rougues are attacking. This book is a must read book for the ages of 12 and up. It containes a large amount of adventure and a little romance but not much. The author has expressed the life of the past in the way of Dugeons & Dragons. The book is revolved around a man named Theylvin Fox Eyes, even though that isn't his real name. He is an orphan that comes from an un-know race of warriors that have remarkable abilities compared to no other race except the immoratals. I give this book a rating of 4 because it has a large amount of fantasy, suspense, mystery, and adventure. The other reason is simply based because I have read many books and this book is a excelent book to read! I hope you like the book if you will or have read it.

HASH(0x9897d9d8) out of 5 stars Dragonlord of Mystara March 7 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am one extremely picky person when it comes to the way dragons are written and actually take it to heart when they are described as dumb beasts or are not one of the main characters in the DRAGON BOOK I am reading, thus it is very easy for me to find a faults in books. Never, in my life knowing these wonderful creatures, which has become an abscission for me, have I read a more amazing books as these! In this trilogy, the dragons are perfect! everything about them, from there look and size, to there social structure, to there interaction with humans. I could not find even one problem with this trilogy. If you want a top notch dragon book, pick up these!
HASH(0x9939f4bc) out of 5 stars is a nice, easy Jan. 6 2016

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The First book of the Dragonlord Chronicles. Begin the quest that is Thelvyn Fox-Eyes' life. While not normally considered cannon within the D&D Mystara setting, it fits fairly well, and as a standalone book series, is a nice, easy, enjoyable read.

I loved this book. First it treated dragons the way they were meant to be treated: As smart life forms not dumb animals: Very smart.
