If you have read any of the dragonlance books over the years then i would suggest this one as well. The draconians story is very well done.

One of the strongest DragonLance yet. It takes place after the summer of flame from not the hero's point of veiw but the dracorians (note that the are not actually in the war). As a future RPG writter I was extremely impressed by this novel. I barely stopped to sleep.

I just finished this book and Loved it. I think anyone who is a fan of The DragonLance Series should read The Doom Brigade and This Book. This book starts out as action and does not stop.

This is the sequel to The Doom Brigade. I recommend to read that book before this one or else you will be utterly confused. I am in love with all these characters. They all possess a quality that I have never seen in books. I've read many dragon books but these top the charts! I think that I will be reading as many books as I can from the Dragonlance series. It's inspiring to see these draconians fight for their race when they always think that they're gonna die but still they all make it through. It is so inspiring to believe in them. I get so caught up in the book I don't even notice when someone just walked in the room and is talking to me! I can read it for hours at a time.

The Kang's Regiment series is an integral part of the DL saga. Along with The Dragons by D.Niles, Draconian measures and it's predecessor, The Doom Brigade, give valuable insight into a race (or races) that have not been a central part of the storytelling. These books help break down the strictly black and white, good and evil perception of the various races by giving the dracos emotions and by telling of the exploration of these emotions. Particularly interesting was the the exploration of love and comraderie.In terms of storytelling,the dracos have evolved from ruthless killing machines into an honorable race trying to find their place in the world, a struggle that gives the story much human substance.

Now I am an avid fan of the DragonLance series and when it comes to another tale about the Commander Kang and his Draconian Engeneers it caught my eye. The story is very well written and is a good continuation from the previous novel 'The Doom Brigade', also by the the talented pair of Don Perrin and Margaret Weis. The newest addtions to the draconian race the female draconians are now about a year old and have really taken off in thier growth. The charater development of the females are starting to become more defined as the story progresses and helps add more depth to the Dragonlance series. (Also nice is the handy reference secion concerning ablities and combat of the female Draconians in the D&D game are included in the rear of the novel.) Overall the story is a very well written as it is to be expected from such talent as Perrin and Weis and would definiately recommend if you are a fan of dragonlance and like to see just how the mind of a draconian works.
