I look forward to the next book.

All in all she ended the Dhamon Saga with a bang, and opens up for many of the characters in the end a new begining.

At times he has given up and now with a book titled, "Redemption," I had to wonder upon opening it..

I have noticed two types of reviews of Jean Rabe books. Those who absolutely hate her works because she is not Weis and Hickman, and those who love her books without question and write glowing reviews in defiance of the nay sayers. Hopefully you won't find any of that here.
Redemption is the last of a three-book series. I followed the series with as much eagerness as I pursued the War of Souls trilogy. Jean Rabe is a very promising author and the potential shows in her writing, making her works enjoyable of their own, but her style lacks that certain depth that marks the difference between a fantasy book, and a magical world which you live in vicariously as the story progresses. Redemption is a fantasy book. If this weren't a series, and if Jean hadn't written a series before this I would wonder if this was indeed a first novel.
Jean's overall style is swift and to-the-point. Succinct perhaps to a fault. She usually gives a brief description of the environs followed by thoughts and monologue from a given character. This gives you a sense of being in the character's head, which is interesting. The descriptions of the environs and of actions are all too brief and general, giving you the gist of it all, but rarely going into much real detail. This gives an unmistakable feeling that the book was rushed to meet a deadline and your mind has to work a little more to fill in the blanks. This is why Jean's style takes some getting used to at first, and why Weis and Hickman fans, being so used to the descriptive and full of depth style of the duo, are furious that Jean writes Dragonlance books.
Once you get used to the style, you'll find Redemption an enjoyable read, though there are some glaring inconsistencies.

Many people who read Dragonlance books seem to have a complex that I have seen in comic book fans... it involves an imprinted, undying fanatical loyalty to one particular author's vision of a character or their "world." For many in Wonder Woman for example, the fans are very hung up on the interpretation of one George Perez who revamped the character in 1987...When he left the book a few years later, all one heard about is that the "Perez" version was all that mattered and its continuity was considered an inflexible bible of the character...other versions that were to come were denounced and many times personal attacks about the authors could be heard among the fans rather than judging the stories based on a few simple things such as..1. Was it well thought out? 2. Did the characters live and breathe and tell their tale well? 3. Did the conclusion make me want more?
In the Dragonlance fan base, the equivalent to this can be seen in the fanatics that only seem to enjoy Margaret Weis and Tracy hickman novels. I have read several other authors whose books are every bit as well written (some even better... the conclusion to the War of The Souls trlogy I found wanting...).
One of those is one Jean Rabe. Given the not to be admired task of building Krynn's Fifth Age with an introductory trilogy, which was wirtten in a style markedly different than that of Weiss and Hickman, a duo that many consider their "One (or Two ) Gods of Krynn." jean's first trilogy has been widely criticized not because it is not well written but because of what it is not...

...I have to say that this book was worth the wait. After getting the book only two days ago from amazon.com I devoured it word for word re-reading certain parts of it not because it was difficult to understand but because... they were just stupendous. The characters don't get along all the time, they are not all cozy and when they bicker I could feel the tension in the air and LOVED IT because I felt I could identify with the characters and their points of view.
This book, nay this trilogy is not only a sequel to Jean's often controversial Dragons of a New Age trilogy but rather can be easily read without that background. The book is the conclusion to a trilogy about a rather tragic yet engrossing man named Dhamon Grimwulf a man who has been put to the crucible and at times succeeded, and at times failed. In other words he is HUMAN and fallible. At times he has given up and now with a book titled, "Redemption," I had to wonder upon opening it... does Redemption exist for this man?
Of course I am not so cruel as to spoil the book, go and get it to find out! All I can say is that the book continues to dissect the land of Dragonlance's Fifth Age and I found it to be exciting. I felt like I was a voyager, traipsing the world on a genuine D and D quest of my own. This is not a campfest though and it is not a book about epic events although things continue to build and build into a very dramatic and tear inspiring conclusion.
...I cared about all the characters in the book, they were all written very well. She continues to take risks as a writer, giving us well fleshed characters that are mythic monsters yet ultimately the cast stays small and is focused. The plot twists and turns but never deviates...
Ultimately it is a book about the journey of one man and his hope to redeem himself for the dark stains in his past as well as to plot out if possible, a new future for himself before he dies... Read it and enjoy. ... you WILL not be sorry.
