Dragons of a Vanished Moon by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman

(9.5/10)

War of Souls Trilogy #3

The flames of war devour Ansalon. The army of dead souls marches toward conquest, led by the mystical warrior Mina, who serves the powerful One God.

A small band of heroes, driven to desperate measures, leads the fight against overwhelming odds.Two unlikely protagonists emerge. One is a dragon overlord who will not easily relinquish her rule. The other is an irrepressible kender who has been on a strange and remarkable journey that will end in startling and unforeseen fashion.

The final part of the War of Souls trilogy finds Tas and Conundrum escaping the clutches of Mina and discovering that there is a past.

It finds Gilthas undergoing his own soul searching and deciding to lead his people to Silvanesti via the Plains of Dust.

It finds Silvanoshei continuing his inexorable march to doom.

It finds Gerard and Odila desperately trying to find a way out of the darkness.

It finds Palin and Dalamar working from beyond death.

It finds Malys, Razor and Mirror deciding the fate of dragonkind.

It finds the Gods back in Krynn for a titanic battle.

And, above all, it finds us a conclusion fitting to this epic world.

The fourth Age builds to its tremendous climax as elves, ogres, minotaurs, dragons, humans, gods and the souls of the dead all gather at Sanction for a final terrible battle where the balance is restored and the Book of Judgement of Gilean finally gives us the solution to Takhisis' attempt to rule Krynn once and for all.

The final volume in the fourth age of Krynn, the final volume before the Age of Mortals can begin, is a rich tapestry of love and war, heroes and villains set against a wonderful struggling backdrop of life and death, of magic and mortality woven in a truly breathless manner by the undisputed current masters of fantasy, Weis and Hickman.

This book, this trilogy, the entire world of Krynn and its heroes that has been created deserves six stars and beyond and any fan of the fantasy genre must have this on their bookshelves.
