It was nice to kick back with an old friend after so many years. I read this book way back when I was in my early teens and loved it. In fact I loved everything Dragonlance back in the day. I got all the AD&D modules as they came out and was part of the Dragon of the Month Club acquiring all the lead figures.
This book captures the Dungeons and Dragons atmosphere perfectly and remains readable to those not fans of the role playing games. The action is fierce and told from many different sides while maintaining a perfect pace. The characters are well written and adored. I eagerly look forward to revisting the other two books in the trilogy along with the other offerring both new and old.
Reading this makes me want to break out my modules and start playing again!
