Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
For some people, self-knowledge brings power; for Mina, the central figure in this post–War of Souls trilogy, the realization that she is a lost god of light who has been tricked into serving darkness only brings insanity. To cure her of this mental plague, Rhys, the monk of Majere, escorts to the mysterious realm of Godshome, but his protective mission puts them both in grave danger. A novel in the Dragonlance universe.
VOYA
The goddess Takhisis is dead. Mina, her most faithful servant, has gone from trying to conquer the world to a seemingly endless vigil at the side of her former mistress. Chemosh, god of death, approaches Mina with options for a new life, offering her love and power. She accepts, becoming his servant and his lover. She travels as a High Priestess, spreading a message of endless life to those who would accept Chemosh as their god. But endless life has a very different meaning when one is dealing with the god of death. Before long, Chemosh and Mina's influences spread to the life of Rhys, a young monk, whose life is forever changed when his own god abandons him to the mercy of Chemosh's minions. It falls to Rhys to stop Mina and her lover before death takes over their world. The latest offering in the Dragonlance saga from one of the original creators certainly will be pleasing to longtime fans of the series. It offers plenty of fantasy action intermixed with a mythic feel that is appropriate to a book about fickle gods. Parallels could be drawn between the gods of Dragonlance and the gods of ancient Greece. Those who are unfamiliar with the series, however, might find the wide variety of names and influx of history confusing. VOYA CODES: 3Q 2P A/YA (Readable without serious defects; For the YA with a special interest in the subject; Adult and Young Adult). 2004, Wizards of the Coast, 384p., Ages 17 to Adult.

    Not worth the wait

    The whole trilogy has been a disappointment. I have read lots of Dragonlance books, mainly the ones written by Weis and Hickman. So I thought this trilogy would be worth it. I really liked Mina as a character and having a kender is always good. But the grammar and syntax mistakes are too much. I hope they fix this by the time the mass market comes out, but in all 3 books, there are several errors that make me wonder if the editor took a leave of absence. Although the characters are great, the story probably didn't need 3 volumes to be told. There was no real secret to the story or big revelation. Some scenes lacked detail, and at times for sake of speeding the action, the sequence of events doesn't quite add up. This volume in particular, even though way behind schedule, seems like it was done in a hurry. Maybe Weis didn't like the story after she started and just wanted to be done with it. I hope that the third volume of the lost chronicles is better than this.

    The Saga continues

    Wonderful book and trilogy. Familiar characters, comfortable settings, and exciting plot development. Just enough information as the story progresses to enable one to sleuth possible outcomes and then be surprised by the result.

    Mina has finally taken godhood

    I thought that this book was very interesting and enjoyable to read. There were many comical areas in it as well, which is kind a great new play in the series. I know there have been funny instances where Tasselhoff would say something funny but Nightshade is hilarious. I was disappointed with how the finalization of Mina turned out. She is a God but she does little to advenace the ways of her people. All of the other Gods have clerics and mystics that perform duties in their name but she has none and is tempermental about who she grants peace to or takes vengence upon. There were also a large number of typos and misplaced words throughout the book. Overall it was a great piece to read and a must have for any fantasy and Dragonlance reader. If you read this trilogy it may be confusng if he War of Souls trilogy is not read first.

    Though predictable, a must read as it is closure for the Dragonlance series

    As this is the final book on the Dragonlance series so to speak, I was reluctant to read it for that very reason. However, Margaret did well to lead up to the last book of the Dark Disciple trilogy to want you to know what happens to the key supporting characters, to Mina, to Krynn, to the gods. I found the ending predictable in some aspects but it did not do enough to dilute the enjoyment of the book. In the end, I actually felt more for Mina than in the previous two in the Dark Disciple series, which made the ending feel that much greater. If nothing else you feel a sense of accomplishment in reading this final book, but as an avid Dragonlance fan (who would be reading this book anyway), I'd wager you come away with more than that in the end.

    Amber and Blood

    I always enjoy the Dragonlance fantasy series and especially the writings og Margaret Weis. She has created a deep and rich world of characters,setting, and storyline.

    We now see how Mina fairs in her attempt to find her destiny.

    I have read all of the dragonlance books I can find. I have many series that are waiting for the next book or the final book, like this one. Anyone who loves fantasy, would love Dragonlance.
