Editorial Reviews

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.

    Let Dragon Lance go........please

    I have always loved the origonal Dragonlance series, I even found the War of Souls somewhat entertaining, but this latest series is almost a punishment to read. It seems the author just went back and renamed some old characters and stuck them in a new book. There was nothing compelling or exciting to read. The character of Mina has to be one of the most weak minded women playing at being powerful that I have ever read. The God of Death is basically a rip off from Anne Rice's Lestat character. I was truly dissapointed.

    Mina mystery keeps unfolding

    The character of Mina, and the Monk Rhys, kept this book really interesting, and hard to put down, I immediatly went out and bought the other 2 books of the 3 book series, and will probably have them all read in about 2 weeks.

    Launching of the concluding trilogy

    After reading the War of Souls trilogy, I was anxious to get to this book to see what becomes of Mina. I was surprised by the unexpected turn at her fortune and the new "characters" in her life. The book direction was unexpected but interesting. Admittedly, the book does carry a little more "passion" in Mina's character that didn't do much for me. But, all in all, I enjoyed the book to continue reading how the series I've grown to thoroughly enjoy over the years concludes. It is a must read for the Dragonlance fan, and hopefully enticing at a glance for newcomers to start from the beginning in order to get to this point.

    Amber and Ashes

    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.

    I Did Not Finish It But I Don't Care!

    Ok, this book was really boring. I can't even finish it. I was really really excited to read this because The War of Souls was GREAT! But when I was on Part 2 in the book, I was already mad. The storyline was horrible. I ended up reading a different novel and put that book somewhere else. Not reccommended.

    A reviewer

    Well, after reading almost all of the Dragonlance books, I finally decided to pick up a copy of Amber and Ashes. I already despised Mina, but I felt that I needed to read it anyways. I found myself really enjoying the plot and characters. Rhys is a fairly interesting dude . . . and Nightshade isn't just your everyday kender. After reading about the Dragonlance deities, I really didn't like them much. But after reading Amber and Ashes and Amber and Iron, I've learned to like them a tad bit more. Even though Zeboim can be annoying sometimes, and the characters have a few flaws, the book is great.

    A fantastic contiuation

    Characters that are engaging AND completely original. Gone is the day of the childlike, cute and annoying Kender. A very believable contiuation to the Dragonlance saga. I am hooked!

    Amber and Ashes is AMAZING!!!

    I'm like a total Margaret Weis freak. She's my hero. So I was going through all her books at the library and pulled this out. The cover picture freaked me out, she really needs to put on a shirt, but it's so awesome! I love romance, and Rhys is too cool. The ending is like death though, so be sure to get the second book!

    Worth the read

    I found this book hard to put down. A intriguing read that keeps to the old style of the Dragonlance's mystery and aciton, while maintianing a mix of solid fun and seriousness.

    Death and Love

    I absolutely loved it. I've read my share of Dragonlance but I've always seemed to enjoy the Weis-Hickman work most. It's like coming home and seeing the foundation of Dragonlance solidified once again. I admit I got really bummed when the Age of the Mortals started and the gods had 'left' (if you read the books you know the story). But the focus on our lovely death god has absolutely made this book darkly delicious.

    Off the mark, but still enjoyable

    Though not as riveting as the first with Mina, it still showed signs of promise and intrigue. It left me wanting to know what would happen next and had plenty of twists and turns. Mina seems a totally different character and it is somewhat obscure when previous characters are mentioned in obsolete manners. Why bring them back at all? Overall though, I liked it...

    Worth The Read

    As this was my first book in the Dragonlance series I did find it very enjoyable. I have read several books from some well known authors that I couldn't finish because they were so borring. This one kept my intrest thru out. I'm sure there are better books in the series but I do believe it's worth the read.
