Fans of the Dragonlance Chronicles will no doubt find this novel very interesting. However, if you have not yet experienced the Chronicles and are thinking of reading this book, I would highly suggest that you read the Chronicles first. I say this simply because some of the events that happen in this book will be so much more clear after reading the firs trilogy. The plot of this books fills in a major gap of events that occurred during Dragons of Winter Twilight, and a little into Dragons of Spring Dawning.
The plot of this book is a little different than most Weis and Hickman books in that it is a very involved plot and has several shifts in perspective and following main characters. Some of the plot points in this book are things such as Kitiara's rise through the Dragonarmy, her interactions with Highlord Ariakas, Sturm's interacting with Derek Crownguard, the battle of the Ice Wall, and several other things.
This book is chalk full of plot points and story arc points. Fans of the original Chronicles will appreciate the depth that this story is explored and the answers it gives for how characters behave later in books and stories. Weis and Hickman have obviously had this story idea in their heads for a long time.
It's great to see that this story has finally seen the printed page. The characters in this book will be largely familiar to fans of the original chronicles. There are a few additions, but for the most part all the 'big players' will be known to readers. Unlike the first Lost Chronicles book, Dragons of the Dwarven Depths, there is a substantial amount of character development in this novel. Almost every one of the major characters has some level of development. Kitiaria, Laurana, Derek Crownguard, and several other characters all grow as characters in this book.
It seems that Weis and Hickman put more thought behind developing the characters in this book than they did in the first. It was very refreshing to see. My main point of contention with the first Lost Chronicles book was that the character dialog seemed 'off' ad wrong at times. I am very pleased to say that that issue seems to be completely resolved.
The dialog in this book is exactly what I read in the first chronicles. Sturm, Tasselhoff, Derek, Laurana, and Kitiara all have spot on dialog and hold true to the characters I came to love more than twenty years ago. After the last book, I was slightly worried that those things would be repeated, I was very pleased to see they were not. This novel fits nicely into the stories that have come before it.

Reading this novel was like putting on an old pair of shoes. It was comforting and I knew just what I was getting myself into. I can't say enough good things about the original Chronicles and now I have another book to add to that saga. Fans of the Chronicles will fall in love with the companions all over again. Hopefully, this also brings more readers to the original Chronicles and allows others to discover the wonderful books I grew up with. This is certainly a book I am looking forward to. In regards to this book, I have no doubt I will find myself recommending it to countless Dragonlance fans.

It truly was a great read. I must admit from the outset, that I was not looking forward to this series. Kitiara, who is rising up the ranks of the dark forces, must undertake the journey to the Ice Castle of Feal-Thas, where she will have a dramatic confrontation with Laurana, a leader of the forces of good. Over twenty years later they are going strong as partners - over thirty novels as collaborators - and alone or together with other co-authors have published over a hundred books, including novels, collections of short stories, role-playing games, and other game products.
Hickman is also the inspiration for an upcoming "Tracy Hickman Presents" line of Dragonlance novels for Wizards of the Coast, while Weis is in the midst of her own Dark Disciple trilogy. Weis is also the President of Sovereign Press, which publishes Dragonlance game material as well as many other game products. The Lost Chronicle series continues filling in the background of the Dragonlance with this second installment in the trilogy. The quest to recover a dragon orb in a distant land falls to Kitiara Uth-Matar, who is on the dark side and who is destined to confront Laurana, the leader of the forces of good.
Sandra Burr draws on the large store of characters she has developed in past productions. She deals with the expository passages with a light touch that keeps them moving at a good pace and skillfully brings out the humor and comic relief. While this is well done, it may not be the best point for newcomers to begin this multi?
