4 stars overall

Margaret Weis, has long been one of my favorites. Don't really have much experience with the work of Don Perrin but if I find any of his solo work I'll definitely check them out. Margaret Weis doesn't disappoint.

That said, I only give the narrator 3 stars. I frequently felt like I was sitting in on a reading for a group of preschoolers.

Raist and Caramon still enjoyable after all these years!

I read the very first Dragonlance Trilogy when I was in junior high in the 80s and was drawn into the fabulous universe of Ms Weis and Ms Hickman forever after the first chapter! Of course my favorite character was Raistlin. I remember being excited when the Brothers Majere's first very own Trilogy came out (Time of Twins etc) and I thought it was as good as the original. I was so excited to see The Soulforge come out and recently became aware of this book's existence. Brothers in Arms is a fine entry in the saga of Raistlin and Caramon (and includes the fabulously independent and sexy big sister Kitiara too!). I wasn't quite as drawn in as in previous books, perhaps because it was the combo of Hickman and Weis that was so special but this book is still a very good story and stays true to the various books before... which is important given the various time traveling and possession that Raistlin undergoes in books set in the future (this is a prequel). I did read it as an audio book so my only downside was not liking Kitiara's voice. I had simply envisioned her as a smoky-voiced and sultry woman who always get what she wants and this is not how this (male) narrator read her part. I also thought he went a little overboard on Caramon being a dolt. But regardless those are subjective concerns... it was an overall enjoyable tale and I highly recommend it as a book in general- and a must-read for Dragonlance fans (come on, you know you'd love to read a Dragonlance story again!). Yes I'm talking to your thirty/ forty/ fifty year old a**! Enjoy!

Didn't live up to Book 1

Not as engaging as the first of the series, imo...was a struggle to get through the last half of the book for me.
