I originally started reading Dragonlance when I was a freshman in High School. I read many of the books back then and I was very much into the whole Dragonlance world. Since then, I've read nothing of Dragonlance since. I am now 27 and I just picked them up again. I read the Annonated Chronicles which was incredible. I then wanted to go right on to Summer Flame which I had read back in High School. But I had never read the Second Generation and I was told that it was essential for setting up the events and characters in Summer Flame. When I first sat down to read it, I was hoping to blow through the book so that I could get on to Summer Flame. I'm so glad I read this book! The book consists of I believe 5 short stories about some of the different characters that appear in Summer Flame. In the first story entitled, 'Kitiara's Son', we learn about Steel Brightblade, Kitiar's son. The other stories are entitled 'Wanna Bet?', 'Raistlin's Daughter', & 'The Legacy'. I might be forgetting one story but this is almost all of them. It is imperative to read these stories before moving on to Dragons of Summer Flame. They provide valuable background information that will make reading Summer Flame much more rewarding.

After reading the amazing Legends and Chronicles trilogies I couldn't help but feel majorly let down by Second Generation. It's a collection of short stories involving the children of the Heroes of the Lance. There is a serious lack of action for each story and I found myself struggling to get through it. Some of the stories were a utterly ridiculous, especially the one involving Caramon's three sons and the search for graygem. An interesting introduction to the characters in Dragons of Summer flame nothing more. Definetly not required dragonlance cannon.
