    Kender sent back in time?

    The Chronicles left me begging for more. 'Time of the Twins' is every bit as good. Ms. Weis and Ms. Hickman make you believe that you are thrown backwards in time with Raistlin (my favorite character), Caramon, Crysania, and even Tas to the days prior to the Cataclysm. After reading the Chronicles, I felt that this book was bringing me in touch with some old friends. That is how well the characters are described. A must read for anyone who enjoys science fiction/fantasy. You may want to read the Chronicles (listed below) first.

    Tasslehoff rocks!

    This book is good along with the other series. Tasslehoff is my favorite. 'I broke another one!'

    Awesome Read!

    If you are a big Raistlin fan which I am then you will really enjoy this book. When I read it,I just wanted to kill Raist but I won`t spoil it for you. You have to keep reading because it keeps you in suspense.

    Beyond Words

    I was a new reader to Dragonlance when I found this book. It was the first one ever I had read, and ever since, I've been hooked on this series. Now, not only did I read everyone one in this trilogy, but The Chronical Trilogy, and now into The Second Generation. The story within this one book is an instant grabber. You can be slightly confused without learning about Camaron or Raistlin at first, but hell, it's better this way. Plus, Tasselhoff Burrfoot is ultimate. :) I'd definately buy this one to have a good taste of the talent and imagination of Weis and Hickman. Once you start this one, you'll just be sucked into the series like a bad addiction.

    Read Chronicles before reading Legends!

    I really think it is important to read Chronicles before reading Legends. I don't think you'll feel as emotionally invested in the characters otherwise. Which would be a shame. I love both Chronicles and Legends. Have read both trilogies at least 12 times over the last 20 years and I still start with Dragons of Autumn Twilight and finish with Test of the Twins. Never once have I wanted to read them out of order or skip Chronicles and go right to Legends. I guess I've always just thought of them as a 6 book set. After 20 years, and probably coming close to a thousand books read, Dragonlance is still one of my favorite series. I still have my paperback copies with the original artwork, by Larry Elmore if I remember right.

    Not worth it

    Great trilogy for epic fantasy fans

    This is a truly great book - nice mixture of action, magic, suspense, and intrigue. It is not necessary that you have read any of the other Dragonlance books to understand or appreciate what is going on here, by the way. Great epic fantasy read for teenagers and above; may be a bit much for younger readers.

    Awesome ending to a great trilogy - gotta get em all :)

    Weis and Hickman by far produced the best books of the Dragonlance universe. Chronicles and Legends are both a must read!

    HOLY COW!

    This was an excellent book. If you liked the Chronicles series, you've got to read this one! It's amazing! The storyline is fresh, and it brings back all the best characters from Chronicles (though it's focus is on Raistlin and Caramon, of course). I couldn't put it down.

    Weis and Hickman do it again...

    If you are a fan of the original Dragonlance saga this is a must read! It picks up a few years after the events of the war of the lance take place. It is a wonderful and gripping story that leaves you thristing for more. With some old favorites and some new and interesting characters, the Time of the Twins is a must read.

    I rule!

    This book, all the DragonLance books, are amazing. Raistlin is my favorite character and I can never get enough of him. I have read the first six books, starting with the War of the Lance so many times I can't keep count. I have every DL book and keep on with the new ones, though the writing is best when done by the Weis/Hickman duo. As for Raistlin being in love, I think it's charming and it can happen. Everyone falls sometimes, even the greatest.

    WOW!!!!!

    There is one word to describe this book...WOW! I mean it had everything that a fantasy reader could want. It even had time travel. In the beginning when Tanis finds out that something happened to Caramon is pretty funny. I think the best part was when Tas and Caramon get sold into slavery and become gladiators. The relationship between Rastilin and the new character, Crysania, is a real mystery. I loved this book cover to cover. The ending is very dramatic and is a great addition to the story. The authors did a great job writing this book. This book is just the beginning to what is to come later on.

    WOW- what else is there to say about it?

    Imagine a book that begins a series that is actually as good as the rest of the series. Then multiply that goodness times a thousand and you might have an equivelent to this book. Margeret Weis and Tracy Hickman once again prove their prowess in the fantasy realm by creating a new adventure for Caramon, Raistlin, Tas and the cleric Crysania. A powerful beginning and a dramatic and well written conclusion make you crave the next book. If you like R.A. Salvatore or even enjoy science fiction/ fantasy in general you will love this volume of legends.

    Wow, this was a perfect book.

    This is one of THE BEST books I have ever read. It is perfect suspense, action, and drama. The authors really out did themselves. I got it from my math/science teacher. It was so good I couldn't put it down and devoured it in a day all 421 pages!!
