Publisher's Summary

A talent for magic runs like fire through the blood of Dalamar Argent. Yet he is only a servant in the house of an elvish lord, not worthy of the High Art of Sorcery and denied all but the most grudging teaching.

As war simmers on the borders of Silvanesti, Dalamar will find a way to learn his art. His quest will take him along dark paths toward an awesome destiny.

Ok but slow

Any additional comments?

It started out okay, looking forward to reading about Dalamar. The story fit in well with the core story line of the main Dragonlance events. But I felt the story lost a lot of momentum constantly switching through 5 or 6 different characters. I would have been fine not know about the Highlord and her motivations. And the writing was too slow. I like some details about the scenery but every sentance seemd to have 2 or 3 extra describing everything happening in minute detail - i don't need to have every elf they come across features described and compared to flowers or jewels. It would've been a better story if it hadn't been so slow.
