Pierson's weakest DL entry, but still worthwhile.

After the first two books in the Kingpriest trilogy, I was really looking forward to this book.

There was so much buildup to this, it was set to be an epic conclusion truly worthy of the Dragonlance brand.

And...

Gah. For the first time, I must confess myself disappointed with Chris Pierson's choices.

In fairness, this was still a good story. There were some great twists (on, the one! I don't want to spoil it, but that one twist near the end alone makes having read the book worthwhile), some awesome ways things tied together.

However, this is the first time I've seen serious continuity issues with one of Chris's books. He's usually careful and diligent about maintaining continuity with established Dragonlance facts. But he went completely off the trails in this one in so many ways.

Danubis, frankly, isn't even the same character we saw in Time of the Twins.

And there are events that feel so contrived (especially the one or two that were completely unnecessary!), it felt almost like I was playing a D&D game with a REALLY BAD DM.

I feel like if the book has been 50,000 words longer, he could have devoted enough time to these things that they would have come across a lot better.

In the end, I feel like this book was rushed and trimmed down to too short of a length to do it justice, effectively crippling its ability to be a great book.

That said, however, it was still worth reading and I definitely recommend this trilogy to any Dragonlance fan.

Fantastic read!

The narration was spot on. You could really get into the emotions of the character, no matter the age or sex. A great job to all involved.
