Overview

Third in the classic Preludes series.

First launched over a decade ago, the Preludes series has continued to prove popular with Dragonlance fans. This re-release of Brothers Majere showcases a new look for the forthcoming recovers of the remainder of the series. The title features cover art from lead Dragonlance artist Matt Stawicki and includes a short introduction by New York Times best-selling author Margaret Weis.

Before the War of the Lance...

Darkness and unrest are growing. People disappear in the night, and there are rumors of foul forces at work. To this land caught in the grips of a nameless terror come Raistlin and Caramon Majere, two brothers--one a wizard, one a warrior--who are trying to eke out a living on the backroads of Ansalon. Desperate for money, they agree to take on a job in the backwater village of Mereklar. But they soon discover they may be in over their heads. A beautiful noblewoman, a savage beast, the Queen of Darkness, and a spellbound kender will decide the fates of the brothers Majere.

I have read all of the Dragon lance novels and am buying a new copy of a few due to water damage. I have been reading them for years and love all of them.

This was the first Dragonlance novel I got my hands on, also the one that always brings me back to the series. I loved this book. I did find myself confused at times, but liked the author allot.

This book I found to be a wonderful read. Unlike the later DragonLance books, this one has a plot that is not completely obvious (boring). Worth reading.

This book was one of the first DL books ive read, but it was the one that kept me wanting for more. I got really surprised after knowing who the real bad guys were. Its got a lot of intrigue and action. What I dont like is the way Raistlin treats Caramon.

This book was pretty good, but there were a few instances where I was thinking, 'Did I miss something?'. The attitude of Raistlin towards Caramon contradicted a bit from the way Margaret Weis describes it in The Soulforge; Raistlin seemed apologetic and sincere a LOT. But, I'm not here to criticize, I'm here to praise this book. I enjoyed the antics of Earwig Lockpicker almost as much as I enjoyed the antics of his 'Cousin Tas'. Good job, Kevin, you'll go down in Dragonlance history with a good rep.

Raistlin is my favorite character from the original trilogies. So, I was delighted to find this "prequel" of an adventure before the Chronicles took place. The brothers future issues with each other can be seen, even in this time, and it lays a foundation for what we know to come. This is a simple adventure the two embark on, but it reveals more about their years before they become heroes.

Shortly after passing the Test at the Tower of High Sorcery, Raistlin, Caramon, and a kender, Earwig Lockpicker, find themselves wandering fairly aimlessly, their bankroll desperately low. A sign posted to tree offering 10,000 pieces of steel was too much temptation for them to skip, although they would later wish they had never seen the sign. The bizarre city of Mereklar had problems - bigger than anyone imagined. And the city wasn't the only one with problems. As the twins quickly found out, very few people were interested in having the twins assist the beleaguered city. From the City council that wanted them gone, to the assassins trying to dispatch them at every turn, to the cat-like beast roaming the city, to the populace, looking at Raistlin with a mixture of hatred and fear. The only one who appeared to want them in Mereklar is the city Councillor, the regal Shavas who seems to offer each of the companions what they most truly desire. Shavas is not what she seems, however...In my opinion, this volume was by far and away the best of the Preludes series. The backdrop of the story was a little weird (Mereklar having been built by the gods of neutrality, having been tricked by the gods of darkness, but influenced by the gods of light... weird stuff), but the story itself was consistent with what we know about Krynn. One of the more interesting components was the introduction of a demi-god; the first one I'd encountered in the DragonLance realm. I was also impressed by Raistlin's compassionate gestures towards Caramon - I wish it was in his nature to be more like that...Read 10/2007
