Draconian Measures (by Don Perrin with Margaret Weis) picks up where Doom Brigade left off. Kang's regiment have successfully hatched the female draconians and are now trying to protect them until they are mature enough to breed. The survival of the draconian race depends on it.
This story is full of mystery as the goblins and hobgoblins, once allied with the draconians begin to attack in an orchestrated fashion, much more disciplined than goblins are apt to be.
The discovery of another band of draconians gives Kang and his troops hope that there are many more of their kind in the world.
Kang encounters a setback when he is forbidden to contact a group of Knights of Takhisis for help against the eminent goblin horde. Something strange is going on in the new camp of Draconians. Can Kang and his men find out what it is before it's too late?
One of the most interesting aspects of this book is the introduction of the female draconian. Don and Margaret cover their special powers (slightly different from their male counterparts) and abilities. You can feel the draconians becoming a true race rather than a created species. They seem less evil because of it. They, like all other species, are just out to survive.
An added bonus to Dungeons & Dragons players is the new 3rd edition statistics for draconians in the back of the book.
If you enjoyed Doom Brigade or any of the other 5th Age Dragonlance books be sure to pick this one up.

Draconian Measures definately lives up to its prequel, "The Doom Brigade". As with all Margaret Weis books, the writing is excellent, filled with great character and plot developement, intrigue, drama, and awesome fight scenes. Draconian Measures (as well as Doom Brigade) provides an actual look on the character and personalities of Draconians, instead of portraying them as brainless, feelingless, lizards like most other DL books. If you haven't already, buy both books; it's worth the money. I hope that Weis and Perrin write a third volume about the Draconians new civilization, to give some finality to the questionable fate of the Draconian race.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was an excellent sequel to the book Doom Brigade, also by Margaret Weis and Don Perrin. It explains the lives of the First Dragonarmy Engineers and the female draconians they rescued during the Chaos War from Thorbardin. It also gives more insight into the lives of draocnians, with the introductory of kapaks and auraks to the regiment's story. It also tells the story of the rise of the Free Draconian city of Teyr, and how Kang becomes governor. Sadly we lose an old friend, but this was a good book all the same, worthy sequel of Doom Brigade, which was my second Dragonlance book.

This is the sequel to the best book ever written. Of course its a good book! How could it not be? It tells the tale of how Kang brings his force to the city, Neraka, and of a whole lot of intrigue along the way, such as who is out to get the draconians, now that Takhisis is no longer with Krynn? It tells of how the draconians are more good than you would think. If you have a chance, buy this book!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Draconian Measures" picks up after where "Doom Brigade" leaves off; the story follows the adventures of the First Dragonarmy Engineers lead by Kang. The draconians live in a world where they are pretty much hated by everyone, and the only thing these particular draconians want is a place of their own so they can live in peace. Unfortunately, someone is out to completely destroy all draconians, and it is up to Kang and his men to prevent that. "Draconian Measures" also introduces us to the female draconians whom Kang feels the need to protect at all costs. The females want to experience the world, but they have not been able to do that under the watchful eye of the commander. This book is full of action and sure to please any fan of the Dragonlance world. One thing that any D&D fans should note is that the statistics for the draconians are listed in the back of the book.

This is one of the best in the dragonlance series. It will keep you reeding for hours at end. There is nevor a boring moment in the book and it has a shocking ending.
Thanks for this book Margaret Weis, Don Perrin

Queen Takhisis is gone. Magic has vanished, prayers are only for the weak. General Khang and his regiments of engineers soon discover that the female draconians, which they acquired in "Doom Brigade", are far greater work than they thought first. How strange the minds of those from the opposite sex are: Both the females and the males are getting confused as the differences between the sexes grows along with the females, and adding to their confusion is the fact, that the entire race knows nothing about love. That is the humerous part. The serious part is, that goblins are chasing them, searching to destroy them. The engineers comes to a strange fortress of draconians, and from here, mysteries are discovered and revealed. The girls draws attention, but not only good-natured. But Khang and his men must protect them at all cost, or else their race will perish, their struggles for freedom be in vain... "Draconian Measures" are one of best books in the Dragon Lance series, part from the original Chronicles and Legends. One comes to understand, respect and even like the so-called evil beings, as their society and minds are described both funny and dramatic in high-quality. The events in the book will capture the reader, in much the same way the "Chronicles" did; for this is a truly well-crafted story, where laughter, tension and tears are sure to come.
