I am a huge fan of the Dragonlance series and the offshoots especially when Margaret Weis and/or Tracy Hickman do the writing. Having said that I am v..Show More »ery disturbed by this series of books. I read books one and two but I have given up on book 3 because I see no need to read it.
Mina from the war of souls is one of the main characters. She and the God Chemos join together to rule the world. Takhisis was banished in the war of souls and Mina lost her faith in the god. She seemed to then be just this weak girl who could not move forward in life until another god showed her the way. This is not at all how I pictured Mina to be and totally ruined my perception. Chemos God of the dead came along and seduced Mina, promising her a new army that would have enternal life. Thus Vampires are introduced to the Dragonlance series. When I left off Mina was a God that Takhisis tricked into thinking she was human. Chemos and the other Gods were showed to have nothing but petty jealousy's that made the books seem like comedies.
The other main characters were a monk of Majere, a dog, and a Kender. I guess they are supposed to be the good that stops the evil. These three characters never stepped into the hero roles so I cannot figure out why they are even in the book. The series to my had no real story line. It seemed like Margaret was creating a large cloud that had everything and nothing. I saw no reason for the story so I found it hard to follow.
I thought the series was the work of a first time writer not the senior writer I know Margaret to be. I think this series should be scrapped and a new series should be written for Mina.
