awesome book. only slightly used. removed all stickers with ease!
Return of the Exile, by Mary Herbert is the third and final book in the Dragonlance: Linsha Trilogy.
All the loose ends that were created in the first two books are nicely wrapped up. The way Herbert concludes this trilogy is just fantastic. I was enthralled the entire time I was reading this. The first book in this series was a good read, the second book was decent, but this book blows the doors off of either of the first two. It's a fantastic book and one I would recommend to anyone.
Mary Herbert has staked her clain to the Dragonlance world with this trilogy. She certainly stands above a lot of the recent sub-par books that have been released. Rest asured this book is int he upper teir of recent Dragonlance novels.
At the start of this trilogy I greatly disliked Linsha, I thought she was annoying, boring, and not well developed in a literary sense. By the end of the second book however, I had begun to consider this trilogy fairly good. At the end of this book I learned that this trilogy gets proggresivley better as it goes on.
The third installment of this trilogy begans with Linsha going to the Tarmack homeland, and the new life that ensues there. This part of the book is particularly intersting to me because it shows us a whole new light to Linsha during her struggles to live in an alien society. After a daring escape on the back of a sickly dragon, Linsha sets about getting back the stolen dragon eggs.
Overall I was very pleased with the plot and continuation of the story. I feel that Mary Herbert is definitley one of the better DL authors as of now. Linsha's character is fleshed out more in this novel then the other two. We get to see a kind of darker side to her when she battles and kills a rival woman on Tamrak homeland.
The ending of the novel is very good, particularly because it is not like most of its other new DL counterparts, were the ending is scrunched into 30 pages in a sudden climax. Slowly throughout the book the tension increases, with the climax taking place near Sanction in a dormant volcano. No big suprises in the end really happens but that doesnt make it any less fun. I'll spare revealing the ending to you but I practically jumped for joy when a certain character kicks the bucket.
Overall this book was very good, and in all actuallity it suprised me just how good it was. It ranks in my top 20 for DL books at this point in time. Even if you are dissapointed with the current state of DL books, this book delivers in so many ways.
This was a trilogy of books that I went into with a little bit of reluctance. Linsha Majere a Rose Knight, something that is a recent addition for the Majere household. However, this entire trilogy is awesome. There are unique characters, which have good story lines, and the ending I find, personally to be completely awesome.
