Lifelong friends, they went their separate ways. Now they are together again, though each holds secrets from the others in his heart. They speak of a world shadowed with rumors of war. They speak of tales of strange monsters, creatures of myth, creatures of legend. They do not speak of their secrets. Not then. Not until a chance encounter with a beautiful, sorrowful woman, who bears a magical crystal staff, draws the companions deeper into the shadows, forever changing their lives and shaping the fate of the world.

No one expected them to be heroes.

Least of all, them.

I love this entire series. Gives the Lord of the Rings a run for its money. I wish they would make this into a movie. And to think this came out of an actual Dungeons and Dragons role playing game session. Read full review

About the author (1984)

Margaret Weis was born on March 16, 1948 in Independence, Missouri. She graduated from the University of Missouri in 1970. She worked for Herald Publishing House, starting as a proofreader and leaving as the editorial director of their trade press division. In 1983, she went to work for TSR, Inc., the company responsible for numerous role-playing games including Dungeons and Dragons. At TSR, she was part of the design team responsible for the creation of the DragonLance saga, which lead to the DragonLance fantasy series of books. She collaborated with Tracy Hickman to write many of the books. She is also the author of the Star of the Guardian series, the Death Gate Cycle, and the Darksword Trilogy. In addition to writing, she is the owner and president of Mag Force 7, which produces collectible trading card games.

Tracy Hickman was born on November 26, 1955 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He entered the Missionary Home in Salt Lake City in 1975. From there, he was sent to Hawaii for language training for his eventual trip to Singapore. He was stationed in Hawaii and taught at the Mission House while waiting for his visa to come in. He preached the Mormon way of life in Indonesia for a year and a half. He was honorably released in 1977, and held a series of odd jobs after returning to the states including glass worker, television assistant director, and drill press operator in a genealogy center. In 1981, he approached by TSR about buying two of his gaming modules. He was hired by the company instead and began working with Margaret Weis. They wrote the DragonLance Chronicles together as well as over 40 books. He wrote two solo novels Requiem of Stars and The Immortals.
