Dragonlance Chronicles by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman (Dragonlance)

(8.5/10) An enjoyable read for young adults.

The Dragonlance Chronicles brings together the first three volumes of the highly popular Dragonlance series. Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman write the three books. Denis Beauvais and Jeffrey Butler illustrate them. The Chronicles consist of 1056 pages and were first published by Penguin books in 1988.

Dragons of Autumn Twilight, Dragons of Winter Night and Dragons of Spring Dawning form the Dragonlance Chronicles.

This is a highly enjoyable series of fantasy books better suited to the younger reader. It is Epic Fantasy in style and written from the third-person perspective. The characters are rather one-dimensional but well written even so, the writing style simplistic yet easily read and certainly enjoyable.

Everything is very much black and white in these books, you know straight away who is good and who is evil. There is pleasant light-heartedness that surrounds this tale and even the fantasy genre clichés that are evident in these books does little to spoil.

He stood in the center of the Inn, peering around as though confirming the location and position of each table and chair in the room. The common room was large and bean-shaped, wrapping around the trunk of the valenwood. The tree’s smaller limbs supported the floor and ceiling. He looked with particular interest at the fireplace, which stood about three-quarters of the way back into the room. The only stonework in the Inn, it was obviously crafted by dwarven hands to appear to be part of the tree, winding naturally through the branches above. A bin next to the side of the firepit was stacked high with cordwood a pine logs brought down from the high mountains. No resident of Solace would consider burning the wood of their own great trees. There was a back root out of the kitchen; it was a forty-foot drop, but a few of Otik’s customers found thus setup very convenient. So did the old man.

The Dragonlance Chronicles are fun, easy to read and contains characters that you will be able to get behind. I tend to think of David Eddings when I think of an author(s) who create a series of books that may not change the reader’s life but will provide them hours upon hours of reading pleasure.

An enjoyable read for young adults.
