Publisher's Summary

The surprising history of Balif has finally come to light.... The Journeyman is charged to use the ancient Anvil of Time to travel back along the river of time and find the lost stories that fell between the pages of the history books. One of the most intriguing figures in Dragonlance is that of Balif, the elven general who was an intimate of Silvanos, the first Speaker of the Stars. Balif founded the city of Balifor, granted the kender a homeland, was an advocate for the wizard Vedvedsica, lived under a curse, was altered by the Graygem - but no one elf could do all those things. Or could he?

The Wanderfolk

This book was AWSOME. I loved absolutely everything about it. It was a treat to see the Kender (who are called The Wanderfolk by Balif) origin story. This is like reading DragonLance mythology. Do yourself a favour, come back to Kryyn.

A nice standalone story.

I'm just getting back to reading Dragonlance, I was worried about reading this because of it being part of a larger series but it stands on its own. A nice introduction to Kender and reintroduction to Silvanest.

forest king review

Absolutely loved this book. Somewhat struggled to finish it because of my work schedule but managed to do so in a sufficient amount of time. Balif Thraxenath may have been a minor character held prisoner by Karada in the Barbarians trilogy, many people will probably say he suffered as a lycan after being cursed by Vedvedsica I don't think that was the case. In my own opinion, I believe he was made to appear like the character Beorn in the Hobbit, elf by day and bearcat by night. Nothing involving the cycle of the moon.
