    For those who like the Knights of Solamnia

    I just finished the Lord of the Rose and am moving on to the Crown and the Sword. Douglas Niles gives the world of Krynn a new perspective of the Knights of Solamnia. As an earlier person said, I would have liked to see how the Knights broke up and why not unite, but aside from this falw, the book was awesome. Taking place after the War od Souls, The Lord of the Rose captures the struggle between each knighthood: Rose, Crown and Sword. With an interesting plot and strong characters, Dougals Niles writes a good story. Before reading this book (and the series), I recommend reading the War of the Souls first, since it takes place after. After reading many of the Dragonlance books, I have come to admire the Solomnic Knights. They are noble, brave and honorable followed by being Bada$$. Great read!I recommend any of the Dragonlance books.

    The New Solamnia Pilot

    The Heroes of the Lance are well in the past and the roller coaster ride of wars (Chaos, Souls, etc.) are over. Now is a time of rebuilding and of a fractious Solamnia, once a stalwart kingdom with its champion knights of the Rose, Sword and Crown. Forget what you knew of the Knights from previous novels, the orders have separated and govern their own lands with their own armies. Gone is the hierarchy that had lasted since the days before Huma. Bickering Dukes and subterfuge are the order of the day, even as evil forces stir on the horizon.

    Generally this book is well written, delivering a decent pace throughout. I could have done with a bit more information on the Orders and why they've broken up after events you'd think would have inspired brotherhood. The story hops around and acts more like a brief introduction to things to come than as an exposition on post-war Solamnia: think TV series Pilot. You're given a main set of characters, throw-away secondary ones and a loose plot that gets to a defining moment in an attempt to get you hooked.

    This is not a serious novel set to redefine fantasy, nor to turn the Dragonlance universe on its ear. It is a casual read that plays with the future of Krynn, but doesn't introduce anything cataclysmic--not that it needs another one! The lands of Solamnia look to never be the same however. Or will they?

    The Lord of the Rose has given me just enough to hold judgment on the series until reading the second book. I am hoping for a richer tale, with more characterization and depth, in The Crown and the Sword. That would make this book much more palatable in hindsight.

    Lord of the Rose is a definate read!

    I found this to be a great book, one of my favorites, in fact. There are a few things that don't add up, but these are easily overlooked. Douglass Niles has done it again
