Book 1 of 3 in the War of Souls Series. It was a pleasant welcome surprise to learn that Weis and Hickman were writing another Dragonlance novel. Dragons of a Fallen Sun is an intertwining of old and new. After reading the initial Chronicles triology they wrote, as well as Test of the Twins, the majority of the other Dragonlane books are second rate, many to the point of being painful to read. Caramon, Goldmoon, and several others make an appearance in the novel, some more than others. Tasslehoff is a main character, a welcome return.

The War of Souls starts out with an epic supernatural storm. Although the identity of the One God is made clear, almost painfully obvious from the onset, this does not detract from the experience whatsoever. The corrupt, self-absorbed leader of a detachment of Neraka Knights is given a brutal and violent "pink slip." His replacement, Mina, has an eerie charisma and an encyclopedia knowledge of battle tactics, especially that of the conniving variety.

The second chapter alone is well worth the price of admission. It details the life of Silvanoshei, the son of Alhana Starbreeze and Porthios, and their lives spent running, hiding and fighting for dear life. Luckily, they have dependable allies among the Solamnics, and their resourcefulness seems to know no bounds. This is a stark contrast with Gilthas, who was raised to succeed Laurana as the Speaker of the Sun. Fortunately, his secret fiance, the Lioness, is more than willing to help smooth things over with the dwarves, and Gilthas' hands-on approach is more than endearing to these unlikely allies, even if the relationship between their races has been strained at best for centuries.

The majority of the book follows three different factions: the elves of Qualinesti (who have been under the Iron Curtain of Beryl and the Dark Knights for over two decades), the elves of Silvanesti (who are even more isolationist and paranoid than ever) and the Solamnic Knights (who have taken control of Sanction due to a twist of time and the denouement of the Chaos War). Tasslehoff joins forces with Palin and assists him to travel through time to seek an escape from their horrid plight.

Meanwhile, Mina and company advance to Sanction, turning a certain rout into an overwhelming victory with a heartless and ingenious stratagem. While they wage war against all of Ansalom, the Qualinesti elves make preparations to escape Beryl's genocidal ambitions and flee with the aid of the Thorbardin dwarves.

Bottom-Line: If you enjoyed the other books in the DragonLance series Dragons of Summer Flame is a must read.

It's been a while (1996) since the Dragons of Summer Flame (DragonLance Chronicles Vol. IV) was written and released by the DragonLance masters, Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. That very lengthy book left the planet of Krynn and continent of Ansalon seemingly at peace once more after the disastrous and destructive Chaos War. Now some five years later comes "Dragons of a Fallen Sun", which begins a new series of books entitled The War of Souls; this is Volume I.

Can't We All Just Get Along?

Yes, you guessed it, the poor war-torn, dragon-beset populace Krynn is at war again. This first installment, Dragons of a Fallen Sun, sets up another epic conflict set some 40 years after the close of the Chaos War, and some eighty years after the War of the Lance. A lot has transpired since the ending of the Chaos War in which the Gods that held sway over Kyrnn have quit the planet taking with them the moons that used to act as source for all magic. And out of the North from Dragon Isle, a slew of great green dragons have appeared and after having purged the land of opposing dragons--good and evil--now hold sway over all of Ansalon.

The action starts in "Dragons of a Fallen Sun" as a huge storm sweeps across Ansalon in the Fifth Age, wreaking havoc on all the book's major players: the Knights of Neraka (former Knights of Takhisis), who are laying siege to Solamnic Knight-controlled Sanction; the elves of Qualinesti whose Speaker of the Sun is but a puppet, and their hated cousins the Silvanesti, who are barricaded behind an enormous magical shield; the aging Goldmoon in the Citadel of Light whose husband Riverwind was lost defending Kendermore from one of the great dragons; the great dragons, Malys, Beryl, et al., holed up in their lairs; no one and nothing is spared the wrath of the great storm.

Into the Valley of Neraka, the ancient location of the crony's of Takhisis, Queen of Darkness, seemingly unaffected by it all consuming power strolls a lithe raven haired teenaged girl named Mina, an enigmatic waif who with the help and blessing of the One God, gathers the Knights of Neraka around her, performing miracles that have not been seen since the Fourth Age. Though she has not military experience the Knights follow her willingly chanting for "Love of Mina." And thus begins a bloody path of conquest, slaying good and evil with equal delight and aplomb. The One God--who shall remain nameless--channels his or her power through Mina, exacting love and loyalty from all who look into her mesmerizing amber eyes.

Meanwhile, the Silvanesti Elves have shut out the world, and hide in fear under their magical shield that is slowly killing them. But salvation is near--or is it--in the guise of a new Speaker of the Stars, the son of Alana Starbreeze, who manages to get under the shield and claim his thrown. But Mina is on the move towards the ancient Elfan land on a mission of conquest...

In the other Elf kingdom Qualinesti, the Puppet King, Speaker of the Sun, sits the thrown, but the real power lies in the hands of the Knights of Neraka who have conquered the land for the great dragon Beryl and collect tribute from the once proud elves.

Last, but certainly not least in this very involved story, the magic and healing power of the Fourth Age is fading. Many believe that the disappearance of the Gods is to blame, but some believe that there is another explanation. Perhaps it because the kender Tasslehoff Burrfoot has once again happened on the scene--thanks to the Device of Time Traveling--after having died during the Chaos War. And it seems the past before the Chaos War has disappeared.

Checking in at 624 pages, "Dragons of a Fallen Sun" is the longest DragonLance book to date and contains has many, many references to books in the series that came before it, not only the other books in the Chronicles series, but those in the DragonLance Legends series as well, in which Raistlin enters the Abyss in a failed attempt to become a god. I highly recommend at least reading "Dragons of Summer Flame," in which the Chaos War took place, before reading this book.

Weis and Hickman once again offer up a gem of a book with (some) detailed characters descriptions--though once again the characters are not as well developed as they could be. The book introduces a lot of new characters, chief among these a new Solamnic Knight, Sir Gerard who is dropped into the story without the benefit of a well defined back-story; we know he is considered ugly, but that is about it. Another new principle character, a creature first introduced in "Dragons of a Fallen Sun", is a Minotaur named Galadar who becomes Mina's number two after she restores his missing right arm the night of the great storm. His back-story is largely ignored as well, but his current life is well explored. I must admit that at times it was hard at times to keep all of the characters straight.

Be that as it may, I found "Dragons of a Fallen Sun" quite engaging; in fact like the other books in the DragonLance series, I found it hard to put the book down. True, the book mostly sets the stage for the book that follow it, but the authors do a grand job of setting that stage with rich and intelligent dialog and very interesting plot twists, some of which took me completely by surprise. Some of Mina's back-story was touched upon but not enough to explain her mysterious appearance and power. But at the end of "Dragons of a Fallen Sun" Takhisis, Queen of Darkness disappeared before the end of the Chaos War, could she be back as the One God?

Conclusion

If you enjoyed the other books in the DragonLance series, "Dragons of a Fallen Sun" will certainly satisfy your need for more adventuring on Krynn. Like other series in the DragonLance sagas, the book introduces us to the next generation of heroes and villains and ushers in a new yet another era on Krynn; will this planet ever be at peace?

There are plenty of good things already said about these books here so I wont repeat them, except to say that the book is amazing. From the very first chapter I was really happy with every aspect of it.

I am here to speak about the ones who gave the book bad reviews. Ignore them. Their criticism is entirely baseless. I think in one review the guy says he was upset that an elven character would dress as a ranger during a costume ball, and he goes on about it as if it was some major story faux pax, when in reality the entire event transpired in just a paragraph or two. Its just sad. The writing style is what you would come to expect, with good character development and nice plot lines that wind together throughout the chapters and converge at the end.

This book, which I just finished, was exactly what I was hoping for as a return to the original Dragonlance series. Im glad it was written years ago because I would hated to wait for the sequel to arrive. I bought all three at once and am happy I did.

If you like Dragonlance you will like this book.
