Format: Mass Market Paperback
Dragonlance Chronicles is simply stated, one of the finest fantasy trilogies ever written. As an inaugural set of novels for these two fine authors; Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman set the standard in fantasy writing in the late eighties through today. I first read this trilogy in 1987 and was astounded by its complexity of characters and the breadth of the tale; it is truly epic in proportion. I can only imagine the agony readers might've have gone through if they were reading these fine novels, as they were being released over several months. That is certainly not a problem today, as you can purchase this outstanding trilogy in one set.
You will quickly discover that the characters are highly compelling and well detailed. These two authors have woven a wonderful tapestry in these characters; you will find yourself as elated as they are in their collective victories and as heartbroken in their setbacks.
Contained within these pages are Dragonlances core characters that are quite memorable, well after you've finished this fine trilogy and as history as proven, will inspire several Dragonlance novels to follow.
Tanis Half-Elven - Who is the leader of the companions. He is torn between his love for two women.
Sturm Brightblade - Knight of Solamnia. Squire and Knight whose mission in life is to bring honor back to this stoic group of knights.
Goldmoon - Chieftan's Daughter of the Barbarian Plainsmen. Along with Riverwind, her tribal outcast lover and husband, who are both on a quest for truth.
Riverwind - Lover and later husband of Goldmoon, whose sole mission in life is to guard Goldmoon.
Raistlin - Simply stated, the most alluring character of the whole Dragonlance series. He is a Mage of astounding power and brother of Caramon.

Definitely a great fantasy epic and one of my personal favorites, The Chronicles Trilogy- Dragons of Autumn Twilight, Dragons of Winter Night, and Dragons of Spring Dawning, brings to life the ultimate battle between Good and Evil in the World of Krynn. The books are so incredibly well written that the reader feels that they have been transported to another plane of existence and are actually present among the characters, seeing what they see, feeling what they feel, sensing what they sense. The authors Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman have truly outdone themselves and have presented us with a masterpiece of literature the likes of which we have seen only in JRR Tolkien's work and RA Salvatore's The Dark Elf and Icewind Dale trilogies. Duty, honor, bravery, magic, dragons and heroes are all about. A great trilogy indeed!

The Dragonlance Chronicles (recommended to me by a friend) were my first foray into the world (an entire realm in itself) of fantasy literature at the bookstore several years ago. I had no clue what I was getting myself into, but I purchased the books and, being an avid reader, immediately devoured the first book in the trilogy. I must say that I was completely blown away by Ms. Weis and Mr. Hickman.
This world, these stories, and these characters are by far some of the most detailed, realistic and true to life characters- even if you have never met a dwarf. By reading the first few chapters alone, the descriptive powers of these two amazing authors make you feel like you've known the characters, their entire races' histories, and you can almost FEEL the tension in the air when the characters are in danger. A truly amazing read indeed, second only to Tolkien's works but only because Tolkien was more influential and came first.
Think elves are little midgits who make toys? Don't know your dragons from your wyverns? Well this is a great place to start learning about the wonderful world of fantasy literature. You couldn't pick a better, easier to understand, yet complex story that is ultimately about human nature's frailty and it's wavering between good and evil, yet still holding much sway in the universe. Go buy this. Now.

This is a review of this particular edition and not a review of the story itself (which I would give 5 stars).

I was expecting a nice collectible copy (in 1 volume) of the original trilogy but instead this is a newly bound edition of the annotated chronicles. The original story is still there but there is the annoying side-bar annotation which make it difficult to concentrate on the main text because it gets pushed towards the center. Therefore if you intend to read this copy you will have to keep the book fully spread out on your lap and strain to read the text as it runs into the center of the book and becomes obscured by the fold.

I wonder why Wizards did not simply produce the original trilogy in a deluxe edition similar to editions we have seen for Lord of the Rings and other classic fantasy trilogies.

The art work is decent but the choice of selection is somewhat baffling. There is no apparent order to the full color pictures so they in no way correspond to the text. In fact, some of the pictures do not even belong to the story at all; several are from the Legends trilogy and even later books. Conspicuous by their abscence are some classic scenes such as the death of Sturm or Kitiara revealed as the dragon highlord.

For a $75 price tag you would think that the full color pages wouldn't be cheap gloss, but they are, and hence the thin text pages tend to stick to them.

The only good thing I can say, besides that the story itself is excellent, is that the binding is tight and well made, and the hand sewn red bookmark is a nice touch.

If you already own a good edition of the chronicles trilogy, and especially if you have the hardcover annotated chronicles in your possession, I would pass on this over priced copy.
