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.

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

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.

For all of you who are Raistlin fans, this one's killer. one of the best series i've read yet. You won't want to put it down.

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.

The first in the Legends Trilogy from the realms of DragonLance. The series starts up several years after the Chronicles Trilogy. We are revisited by three old friends, the twins, Raistlin and Caramon, and the kender, Tasslehoff. The war has changed all of them over the short time since its conclusion and the world feels at peace. But some feel otherwise, such as the cleric, Crysania, a new character that is introduced. Raistlin has grand plans, more ambitious than anyone suspects, but he needs help. Through his manipulations, the group finds themselves magically transported to a previous age...the age of the Cataclysm where all will be forced to make the difficult choice between their lives or their soul.The book follows the characters back in time, allowing the reader to see a point in the world's history that was often mentioned in the previous series. In the distant time the stage is set for a bottle between ambitious evil and pure goodness. The first book ends with such a cliff hanger that I just about screamed because it took so long to go grab the next one off my shelves. 5/5

Several years after the events of the War of the Lance, a new trouble is afoot. Raistlin has continued his rise to power and now has ambitions above and beyond the comprehension of anyone else in Krynn. Caramon has devolved from a strong, proud warrior into the laughing stock of Solace. Crysania, Elistan's heir apparent, fancies herself to be more important than the Church itself. And Tasslehoff Burrfoot is bored. Par-Salian, the white-robed head of the Conclave of Magicians sends Tas, Caramon and Crysania back in time to just before the Cataclysm in an effort to turn Raistlin from his mad power grab. The trip back in time is the only hope for them all - if they don't die first. And kender aren't supposed to be able to travel in time...I first read this book back in high school and I thought it was incredible. Of course, I know now that it isn't. A couple of years ago, after slogging through the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant The Unbeliever, I thought I'd take a break from heavy reading and reread the DragonLance Chronicles. It was stunning how clumsy and juvenile the Chronicles were when directly compared with Stephen Donaldson's writing. It may be that because I've just come off of Rick Cook and Christopher Stasheff that Weis & Hickman seem better. My hope is that they actually improved between Chronicles and Lengends... because I've got another 80 or so DragonLance books to read...Read 11/1987, 9/2007

It's most of the interesting characters from the first Dragonlance trilogy without the dull ones! A good read and not badly written, as these things go, though the authors should have watched their repetition of phrases and unsual verbs (for a few pages there Raist kept "padding" everywhere instead of walking). At least this one doesn't have the terrible poems. Raistlyn is a fascinating character, and I find Caramon more interesting than he seemed at first. I was surprised when they started started to give Raistlyn some of the attributes of the haughty, sneering romance hero, but it's added a new dimension to the character, and I suppose it helps to explain why Crysania doesn't go get a life. At first I wasn't sure I bought the reinvention of Raistlyn as a dirty sexy mage, but his relationship with Crysania is complex (to say the least) and is a pleasant change from Tanis' whining.

Wonderful beginning to the second series!

If at all interested in the continuance of the twins stories, here is the place to do that! Great book. Never know if you should hate Rast or love him, coming to grips with his goals is an interesting mind exercise --- and you can never quite tell what his motivations are. They seem clear cut at times, but are they really?

Even after 20+ years this series is by far one of the greatest and I find myself reading it over and over again.

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.

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.
