Overview

Deep in the cavern kingdom of Thorbardin, the powerful Stormblade is secretly crafted by an elderly dwarf-master. A Kingsword, it is intended to break the deadlock among the ruling council of Thanes.

When Stormblade is stolen and turns up years later, a series of exciting and deadly events are set in motion. Only a heroic dwarf knows the magic of the legendary blade, and he sets out to recover the lost weapon. To do so, he must travel to a land rife with war and treachery.

After the end of the War of the Lance, Tyorl and Kelida set out to find and rescue young Hauk, who has vanished mysteriously, and Stanache sets out to find and return the sword, Stormblade, to Kiero, the elderly craft master from whom it was stolen.

    Rife with inconsistencies

    This proof-reading, editing, and research that went into this book, unfortunately, we substandard. For fans of the original Dragonlance series this book is set after Dragons of Autumn Twilight. The lack of research and editorial review becomes obvious as soon as the book mentions Verminaard as being alive (even though the companions killed him at the end of Autumn Twilight.) More to the point, there are inconsistencies of setting even within a few paragraphs of one another in this book. For example, a description of a dragon flying over Qualinesti with moonlight glinting off its scales followed by a statement only a few paragraphs later that the dragon was able to see best on "nights like these when the clouds obscured even the moons."

    Overall the story line is okay - nothing spectacular. While I wasn't expecting literature from what is essentially a pulp fantasy novel a little more attention to detail from both the author and the editorial staff at Wizards of the Coast would have been nice.

    Stormblade

    10. Stormblade by Nancy Varian Berberick
    Genre: Fantasy
    Pages: 347
    Acquired: 1999-ish
    Book of Your Shelf? Yes
    Why I have/read it: Part of DragonLance world (re-reading all)
    Series: DragonLance, Heroes (2)

    A king sword, named Stormblade, has been forged in the mountain kingdom of Thorbardin, home of the dwarves. The sword seems to come at a much needed time. War is quickly approaching the dwarves will not be able to hide behind their stone walls much longer. But in the midst of the excitement, betrayal brews, and Stormblade is stolen and removed from the dwarven kingdom.

    Years later rumor emerge of a sword that fits the description of Stormblade trickle into the mountains. Two rival clans quickly send search teams to retrieve the blade for whoever hold Stormblade will rule in Thorbardin.

    In the truest sense of an adventure, we find an unlikely group of "companions" that struggle to protect the blade and return it its rightful owner and keep it out of the hands of evil. We find a young dwarf blacksmith, a human warrior, an elven ranger, and of course, the barmaid turned warrior woman (of a sort).

    While much of this sounds typical of a fantasy novel, the story is put together in an amazing way that makes what could have been very stereotypical characters to life. We have love, hate, friends turned rivals, and rivals turned friends. There is of course magic and dragons and battle galore. My only real complaint was the ending. It opens the story up for so much more, but no more is ever written (at least not that I have been able to find).

    4/5

    Decent story but conflicts with other books

    This book gets off to a slow start but the story is compelling. My one complaint, however, is that the author seems not to have done her homework. For fans of Dragonlance, the story takes place in and around Thorbardin just after the events in Dragons of Autumn Twilight. The problem is that characters who were killed at the end of Autumn Twilight are running around in this story! Paradoxes aside, the story is worth reading.

    A slow start, A great finish....

    I have read many of the Dragonlance books..this one was one of the best. It is an epic tale of betrayal, revolution, and the bond shared between friends, ending with the seeds' of love having been planted... The begining is kind of long winded, but, after a few chapters, not to mention suprises, you can't put it down.... A must read!

    Stormblade: A Cut above

    Of all the great Dragonlance Stories I have read, I truly believe that this was the best. The author's poetic language vividly paints the story for the reader. The story is so engaging, that I have re-read it several times, yet my heart still quickens at all the same scenes. I have never read a book that pulls the readers emotions consistantly. I literally could not put it down.
