They are crossovers in which Lord Soth and others are transported from Krynn to the Ravenloft world. The novels were interconnected and formed "The Cloakmaster Cycle". The novels tell the story of Teldin Moore, a 'groundling' farmer on Krynn who has a powerful and apparently cursed magical cloak that was given to him. The series puts the character on a quest, and showcases the Spelljammer universe.

Mina even in previous showings never quite died. So, there were hints of her divinity even back then. But she was tortured, mentally and spiritually by a Goddess of Evil. This doesn't make her dark or evil and yet even when she traverses the world, she is smart enough and wise enough to know that if her mother ever knew the things she did, she might not love her the same way. Imagine if after doing great things with evil capacities you did have to look your mother in the eye? Or in this case, your father? Imagine also that just like in real life we bond to our parents.

We saw this with Mina and Takhisis. But Mina's journey is about slowly discovering her inner truths. We all do this. And it can be subtle or we can sit behind a veil. Where this ongoing inner alchemy takes Mina has been written. Similar to Persephone abbucted by Hades, though she loves the Underworld, she comes up to the world and brings light and hope. She enjoys the power of life and death. And so in many ways this can be seen as a retelling of a pivotal Persephone manifestation.
But at the end this isn't about Greece or Rome, it is about another Myth and that is Mina's. The characters along the way also learn things too. Rhys in particular began this series wounded and angry and this changes. He learns again the value of life and the need to participate within the world.
I won't spoil any more but gosh even that dog Atta, is a cool character too. Don't go to quick with this one and naysayers, take off the fanboy lens. Just like how Dragonlance has been around 20 years it is with the hope that its readers have evolved to appreciate a more sophisticated form of story and conclusion. I can't quite decide how I feel about this last novel, and maybe that speaks volumes in itself. I kept picking it up, reading it, and putting it down to read something else. It felt as if Weis wanted to wrap up events and storylines on a short deadline, and because of this she took out everything that would have built up the climax of events surrounding Mina journey.
In the end it felt anticlimactic, and though I'd attached myself to the characters of this book, it was primarily due to the first two books. His subsequent transformation to a Bone Acolyte and what followed I'm on the fence about this one Only to the hardcore Dragonlance fan or role-playing campaigner. While I initially found the storyline captivating, it failed to maintain the potency of its characters and events. It simply lacks the literary credence to find a permanent place on my shelves Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.
I have read most if not all of the core Dragonlance novels, and I cannot recall a tale more enthralling than that of Mina's true nature, especially a tale where the gods of Krynn take a more direct and active role in the lives of the mortals they created. No longer are they the hand that directs fate, they have been given faces, and those faces are as varied and robust as the Heros of the Lance were. Weis and Hickman have been an amazing team, and though Hickman wasn't on this trilogy the story felt authentic to the world they had created together.
This trilogy follows the path of one of the characters from the Weis and Hickman War of Souls trilogy set in the Dragonlance Realm.https://grupoavigase.com/includes/302/1420-webcam-en.php
Amber and Ashes by Margaret Weis
They were the first fantasy novels I ever read and launched me onto reading many more novels. This is an extremely difficult novel for me to rate and review, as I will explain below. The plot of this book picks up right where book two left off. That being Mina's quest of self discovery, just who she is and what her role in the world is. Rhys and the kender Nightshade are given a task that will certainly test their resolve and abilities. This book, much like the second book in this trilogy, is clearly character driven.
This, in and of itself, isn't necessarily a bad thing, but as a big fan of Dragonlance novels and fantasy novels in general, this novel just seems to be lacking the enjoyment that I have come to expect and enjoy from a book. As I said in my review of the second novel, I was a fan of how the gods of Krynn used to interact with the people i. To me, this comes across as contrived and against what twenty years of reading has established.
The characters in this book are for the most part, characters that we have seen in previous books. Rhys the monk, Nightshade, Mina, and Galdar.
I was rather surprised at the lack of new characters. There seemed to be ample room to introduce a new character or two to add a subplot, yet that simply wasn't done. While I understand this book, and trilogy, is about Mina and her personal journey the absolute focus solely on her actually causes me to become apathetic to her and her plight. By fleshing out the characters around her and maybe adding a subplot or two, I may have cared more about her.
As it is, I felt as though she was being shoved down the reader's throat with no other options. It feels odd for me to even say that, as I am a big fan of character driven novels, but this one for some reason just doesn't work for me. A few criticisms I have about this novel are: From the middle of the book on there are numerous errors. Typos, missing words, repeated words, etc. Maybe, due to the situation regarding another novel they simply gave the second half of the book a glance.
Who knows, but for a publisher to allow that many mistakes is uncalled for. The adage too much of a good thing can ruin it, applies here. I think a better mix of characters and plot would have greatly benefited my overall enjoyment of this novel. When I finished this novel and reflected on it, I was left with the feeling that the gods were spoiled brats and not some supreme being responsible for everything in the world.
The framework of the past twenty years of reading Dragonlance novels seemed to be tossed out the window. Some things I particularly liked about this novel: Some things made sense, some things seemed to be a bit of a stretch, but overall it was an acceptable ending.
She certainly had a great deal of character development. Weis' prose is, as always, solid and enjoyable to read. She has a certain flow that I have grown accustomed to over the years. I liked it to putting on your favorite pair of sneakers. You know exactly what you are going to get each and every time.
I really wanted to like this novel. After all, I have invested six novels worth of time reading about Mina and her adventures. Yet, in the end I am left with a sense of disappointment. Not for the final product, but what I think could have been better. I simply did not enjoy this novel anywhere near as much as I enjoyed the first two. This novel, and trilogy, is simply not a good place to start reading in this world. I, much like many other Dragonlance fans, sincerely hope this is not the last Dragonlance novel penned by Ms.
I hope Wizards of the Coast allow her and Mr. Hickman to publish one more, if nothing else, for the fans who have invested countless years in the world. See all 59 reviews. Most recent customer reviews.
