Book Description

While the Elven Exiles struggle for survival in the distant kingdom of Khur, the elves remaining in Qualinesti face persecution, enslavement, and extermination. Amid great suffering and unrelieved evil, a rebel leader–masked, anonymous, and with strange powers–appears, determined to cleanse the land of invaders.

Meanwhile, Kerianseray, the Lioness, Kagonesti general and wife of Speaker Gilthas, finds herself magically transported from certain death in Khur to equally dire straits in her former homeland. As Gilthas leads the elves across the trackless desert in search of a new home, the Lioness fights ruthless slavers and crosses paths with the mysterious masked revolutionary of Qualinesti.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid bridge novel, waiting for the next October 23, 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Alliances by Paul Thompson and Tonya Cook is the second book in the Elven Exiles trilogy. The first book is Sanctuary, the third will be released in June of 2007 and has yet to be named. This trilogy is set in the Dragonlance world, and for fans of Dragonlance, this book fits perfectly into the world and continues to flesh out already established characters.

I will give the same disclaimer that I had for the first book in this trilogy: If you are considering reading this book there are two books that I think you need to read before you read this one. The first is The Puppet King by Doug Niles and the second is The Lioness by Nancy Berberick. These two books set the stage for this new trilogy.

The plot of this book follows closely with that of the first book, but broadens the scope of the story more to encompass more characters and a larger, deeper, plot. There was a tremendous amount of set up in the first book, so that being done, the authors were allowed to spend more time really delving into the situation that the elves are facing and how they can get out of it. As with most middle books in a trilogy, this one answers some questions raised in the first book, but raises many more questions and leaves the reader yearning for the next installment. This plot is well laid out, it's concise with not a lot of fluff and gets to the point quickly without slowing the book down. The pace is very good and allows the reader to become quickly enticed and wanting to read more.

The characters are well written and hold true to their original versions and also add more depth to the characters. The authors begin to further develop the multi-layered characters and how those characters influence the story. Some authors have a plot that decides where/what the characters do.

5.0 out of 5 stars What The Hell Is Going On Here?! December 1, 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In have read this book in less then 5 hours. That is not a complimant to me but to the authors who wrote such a good book. *(*SPOILERS AHEAD*)*

It was nice seeing Porthios and Alhana again, though what is going on between them is beyond my understanding. I liked the fact that a god shows his face in the book, but who the hell is this god?! I would wager either Habbakuk, god of animals (And sea), or Branchala (or Astarin or Astra among the elves), who in the Elven Nations Trilogy was acounted as their primary god. I didn't like, howerver, what appears to have happened to Planchet. Wapah joining the elves was great. I didn't understand what he, a man of logic, was doing with a religious fanatic like Adala. The Oracle Of The Tree was a nice touch, because that was what made Wapah finnaly leave Adala. It was diconcerting hoever, to read the battles. While I can see how the nomads gathered 30,000 warriors,I don't understand how they got that many horses, and I don't understand how all the Elven cavlary (30,000) disappeared. Th scenes in Qualinesti were great, all of them. this book was a great one, kept me yearning to reach the next page, and I can't wait 'till the next book comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alliances, Dragonlance September 4, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I cannot get enough of this series. I still have many more to read. I think I've been reading this same series for over a year now and it's just never ending. Every hero from the first books have come out in their own series. It's wonderful for fantasy or Science Fiction readers. You get to know every one of the players.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good book June 16, 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Alliances is the second book in the Dragonlance trilogy Eleven Exiles. Although the first book in this trilogy (Sanctuary) was pretty good, I thought that Alliances was much better. It reintroduced some old characters from the original Dragonlance series and continues the story of the elves. All of the characters were very well-developed and believable. The plot was also interesting, although relatively dark (but what do you expect, they are exiles). Overall, I thought that it was a highly enjoyable read (really 4.5 stars) and I can't wait to read the final installment in this trilogy (Destiny). I also look forward to reading other books by these authors.
