My rating: <a href=”https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/973800317″>3 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />

Once again, a Dragonlance novel that is nowhere as fulfilling as the original series. As this was part of a prequel series, I was not expecting it to go so overboard on the epic-quest concept. With the original series, the characters were supposedly thrust into their first epic adventure together, so with this prequel series sending them on one before the other happened chronologically–yep, series contradiction. That made it hard for me to get into.<br><br>And then the characters were nothing like the original characters created by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. Same names, supposedly the same characters, but their actions and personalities made them come off as completely different people. And to have Tasslehoff behave completely out of character simply to satisfy a plotline–ugh. Absolutely angering.<br><br>The adventure was a decent one, and I was about to enjoy it now as an adult, but I feel that the author could have taken more time with the original cast of Dragonlance and done a better job.
