Great book for lovers of epic fantasy - nice mixture of magic, adventure, suspense, and intrigue. It is not necessary that you have read any other Dragonlance books outside of the Legends series to understand or enjoy this book. Excellent read for teenagers to adults; may be a bit much for younger readers.

Raistlin is the best character of the series! Make that the whole saga! This is a must read for any fantasy junky. I can't wait to get my hands on the next one!

This is a great book perfect stroy telling about Raistlin and his twin brother Caramon. This story begans after caramon comes into Raistlin's/Findulantus' Laboratory at the end of the first one. They then try to survive 100 years after the Cataclysms. Raistlin under the disguise of Fistandulas reaches the portal to challenge the Dark Queen and attain god hood. Weather he gets it is a mystery.

There's not much more you could ask for from a second book in a series. We return to the watch the brothers Caramon and Raistlin Majere in the next step in their adventures through time. Only now things are really starting to get interesting. Crysania and Tasslehoff haven't gone anywhere...in fact all four friends seem to be going everywhere and everywhen! We travel backwards and forwards through time as they desparately try to alter the past and there's even a trip or two into the depths of the the Dark Queen's real, The Abyss.As this story of loyalty and betrayal comes to a point at the end of this book and I can't wait to dive into the next. Throughout the building up of the atmosphere, our characters continue to develope and progess, although if they are going in the right direction is still up for discussion. After all, what would a pure cleric of good be doing working with the black robed evil mage?4.5/5

Concerning the events following those described in Weis and Hickman's _Time of the Twins_, the second volume of the Legends Trilogy is slightly more exciting than the first. Set approximately 100 years after the Cataclysm caused by the arrogant King Priest of Istar, the novel centers around Caramon, Raistlin, and Chrysania's attempt to gather an army in order to seize the dwarven citadel of Pax Tharkas. The narrative generally centers on the the three main characters march from the city of Palanthas in the north to the dwarven lands in the south, but it does intermittently fly forward through time to dwell on Raistlin's apprentice, Dalamar, a dark-elf who lives after the the events described in the famous War of Lance trilogy.War of the Twins, like the first volume of the Legengs Trilogy, becomes tedious at times for the narrowness of its somewhat flat characters. Although Caramon, Tasslehoff, and Chyrsania are likable and somewhat interesting characters, they are one-sided and predictable. They would be extremely entertaining characters if they were part of a bigger cast--like in the War of the Lance Tilogy--but because they are forced to bear the dramatic burden of the entire narrative, they become somewhat tedious.Raistlin, however, is a complex and interesting character, and his personality pulls the reader through. At times sympathetic, at other times despicable, the mage both attracts and repulses the reader while resisting his/her attempts to pigeonhole him as good or bad. The ending is somewhat rushed and confusing, but the build-up prior to the battle of Pax Tharkas is quite interesting. The greatest moments of this novel are those when the reader is able to participate in the nostalgia experienced by Raistlin and his twin brother Caramon as they attempt to rekindle their problematic relationship.

After escaping the Cataclysm, Raistlin, Caramon and Crysania escape forward in time with the goal of entering the mystic portal to the Abyss, and dethroning the Queen of Dark. Unfortunately, each in their own way discovers that time does not like to be manipulated. Each is doomed to walk the path set by those whose roles they've taken. But kender can change time... If only Raistlin hadn't let Tas die in the Cataclysm... I thought this one was better than the first of the series. At each turn you see a glimmer of hope that Raistlin will actually redeem himself and come back to the light only to be disappointed time and time again as he commits further evil acts all intended to allow him to become a god. The tension is palpable at times. And, of course, being the second book, we have the inevitable cliffhanger... one that I knew was coming, but still didn't necessarily want to have to wait through. Fortunately for me, the third book is sitting right on my bedside table ready to go!Read 11/1987, 9/2007

I need to not wait multiple years between reading these books, but luckily I was able to find my place fairly quickly. We rejoin all the characters from the previous book - Raistlin the crabby dark mage, his twin brother Caramon the somewhat dimwitted fighter, Crysania the beautiful and rather misguided cleric, and Tasslehoff the entertainingly amoral Kender - now one hundred years in the future from where they were (and still two hundred years before their own time). This time they find themselves re-enacting the Dwarfgate Wars, seemingly without any choice in the matter. And you know, as terrible as Raistlin is, I really like him. Well, perhaps ¿like¿ is the wrong word. I¿m fascinated by him. He¿s evil and cruel and selfish and yet still oddly sympathetic. I look forward to the final installment in this trilogy, mostly to find out if he ever gets over himself and lets himself love Crysania. It¿s not a complicated story, but it goes quickly and I¿m enjoying it very much.
