Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This evocative high fantasy novel continues Margaret Weis's The Lost Chronicles, the switcharoo series that tells the story of the War of the Lance from the perspective series of the bad guys. A worthy addition to the fan-favorite Dragonlance series.
Publishers Weekly

In this enterprising second volume of the Lost Chronicles (after 2006's Dragons of the Dwarven Depths), Emperor Ariakis pressures Dragon Highlord Kitiara uth Matar into a plan to make sure the Solamnic knight Derek Crownguard hears about, then quests after a dragon orb recently discovered by Dragon Highlord Feal-Thas. As Crownguard's will is weaker than the dragon essence inside the orb, he will become enthralled to it and compelled to do the bidding of Ariakis. Loathing the task but having no choice, Kitiara treks to Feal-Thas's Ice Palace in the dangerous land of Icereach. As Crownguard and his companions join up with the group of renegades led by Kitiara's rival, Laurana, Kitiara's path takes an unexpected turn, leading her to Dargaard Keep to face the dread Lord Soth. Weis and Hickman have once again produced an entertaining high fantasy adventure. (July)

Library Journal

As Lord Ariakis and his dragon armies extend their rule over the continent of Ansalon, Dragon Highlord Kitiara Uth Matar learns that a former lover, Tanis Half-Elven, is among the small group of heroes that oppose the Highlords and their Dark Queen. As she attempts to prove her loyalty to her superiors by convincing an undead knight to join the dragon armies, Tanis and his companions, including the elf princess Laurana, Kitiara's rival, seek their destiny in the icy fastness of Ice Wall Castle. Returning to their beloved world of the Dragonlance novels, Weis and Hickman discover new tales of familiar heroes. The follow-up to Dragons of the Dwarven Depthsshould satisfy long-time series fans and attract new ones of all ages. Recommended for most fantasy collections.

    The Yin to the Yang

    Any good fanatasy needs a villan as dark as the heros are light. This book gives a more indepth look into Kitiara, her self serving obsessions, her role in the fate of Krynn and those she once shared her life with if not her heart. A MUST BUY for any Dragonlance fan.

    The Villian Kitiara Uth Matar.

    I really loved this story because it is about Kitiara Uth Matar. As the dragon highlord of the blue wing. And her dragon Skie. This story became one of my most memorable.

    I Also Recommend:

    Return to Krynn with the excellent second volume in the Lost Chronicles trilogy.

    WOW! That is the first thing that comes to mind after reading this book, the second in a trilogy about the Heroes of the Lance. This book fills in some of the blanks in the original Chronicles trilogy. For those who want to know what Kitiars was up to between Dark Heart and Dragons of Autumn Twilight, this book tells it. I also loved how the bond between her and Skie was so much better detailed here. An excellent read.!! Expect Ariakas, Feal Thas, Toede, Lord Soth, and many others to make an exciting appearance at one point or the other here. For all Dragonlance fans, you dont want to miss this one!!!!

    Weis and Hickman continue to surprise me!

    I have read a lot of books written by Weis and Hickman and you can never get too comfortable with the story because as soon as you do, they throw a surprising twist into it that just makes the story better. Their cast of characters are as endearing as R.A. Salvatore's "Friends of the Hall." The twist and turns of the plot and the different levels of intrigue keep you hooked throughout the whole book and makes it very hard to put down. I look forward to their next book and cannot wait to continue this journey they have started me on!
