The war against the dragon minions of Queen Takhisis rages on. Armed with the mysterious, magical dragon orbs and the shining, silver dragonlance, the companions bring hope to the world. But now, in the dawn of a new day, the dark secrets that have long shadowed the hearts of the friends come to the light. Betrayal, treachery, frailty, and weakness will nearly destroy all that they have accomplished.

The greatest battle they have left to fight is within each of them.

Yet, in the end, they will be heroes.

Great storyline, good writing. I recommend the trilogy. They did write a 4th supposedly in the series, "Dragons of Summer Flame." It is set 25 years later and very poorly done. The story is depressing. They were not big on continuety. Stick to the original series and some of the follow-ups.

Dragonlance is one of my favorite series ever. Its high on my list. The story line is so good, and its characters are charming and keep you wanting more. The new cover art is so beautiful - its better than the original one. The heroes are all over Krynn fighting their own battles as the War of the Lance continues. This book holds a very surprising ending - a book that will keep you turning pages!

Another great novel by Weis & Hickman. They never fail to deliver. Once again, outstanding writing, and a good ending to an unforgettable trilogy.

This book is wonderful. I began the series with Dragons of a Summer Flame, and I was so confused, but i still got hooked. These characters keep one intrigued throughout the entire book. They really should make a book about Kitiara because she is soo different from every one else.

I read this book back in 6th grade and I kinda fell in love with the series at that point. I gobbled up the first trilogy and then continued on for several years reading almost nothing but Dragonlance books. I haven't re-read this series in a long time, but what I remember about it was the epic-scale, and the in-depth development of the characters that made you feel like you had known them forever. At the same time, there were lots and lots of questions that it raised and this made me hungry to learn more about their universe. A very good read (the whole first trilogy) for anyone into fantasy novels.

The final book in the Chronicles Trilogy. The epic battle of gods, dragons, and the humans whose choices will decide the outcome and fate of all. The characters will make their final choices of good or bad...each with their own personal reasons driving them. Some will suprise us, while others seem inevitable. We lose some friends, gain others, and are suprised by the identities of a few.I cried, I laughed, and even though I knew the outcome from past readings, I held my breath and prayed the good guys would win.After finishing this book, I remembered why it is one of my all time favorite series. There have been more stories written in this world, I plan on rereading those as well.5/5

Crap #3. These books all suck. I read them and I'm more of an idiot for doing so.

The third and final book in the DragonLance Chronicle trilogy. Another decent read from Weis and Hickman. Not as good as the first two, but quite enjoyable. The ending is rushed, but that's normal. Not ever book can consume pages like "The Stand".

Nice, fun, light reading with, to my mind, interesting if stock characters. Excellent for younger readers.

These three books started me on a life long journey. I was stationed at Camp Covington Guam in 1979 when I found the first book left by a UT from the prior battalion. I'd lay out on Gunn beach and read. I would give Hickman a big kiss for sharing thoughts with a homesick Seabee.

Dragons of Spring Dawning is the intense conclusion to the Dragonlance Chronicles. It follows Dragons of Winter Night. The characters grow, achieve new things, and reinstate balance into the world, locking out the evil goddess, Takhisis. Laurana becomes a Solamnic general, Tanis slays the Dragon Highlord Ariakas, and Raistlin thwarts Takhisis and establishes himself as a world power. As before, I am going to focus on characters. With the exception of Caramon, all the characters are dynamic. Tanis deals with Kitiara, finding his true self with Laurana's love. The anguish he has experienced hitherto regarding his split identity (elven and human) paralleled by his love for two women has been laid to rest or, at least, greatly minimized. He plays a major heroic role in ending the depradations of Takhisis and her armies. He retains some selfishness, but acts in an altruistic manner most of the time. This duality (or multiplicity when combined with his other traits) serve to keep him interesting and dynamic. Flint suffers a heart-attack as the group of protagonists with whom he is with approaches Neraka. He grows wiser and more compassionate and willing to face his fears as the story progresses. The change in his character is slight, but it is there. Kas changes also. The quest results in the loss of life of some of his friends as well as many others, including a number of innocents. His grief over his friends (especially Flint) create a certain introspection and fear in the sense of being afraid for those he loves. This is uncommon among the kender. Laurana finds out she can act on her own without tying her identity to another person (parents, originally, and Tanis later). She becomes rather an epic hero as she leads the good armies and dragons against the armies of darkness. Caramon remains pretty much the same. He cannot deal with Raistlin's transition to evil. He is still a good man and valiant, but he was this before. Even his love for Tika seems to make no difference in his character. Raistlin probably is the most dynamic character. He transitions in several ways. He becomes much more powerful, able to function on his own rather than being dependent upon Caramon. He makes the transition from neutral to evil. He remains an amalgam of good and evil, though, retaining a sort of twisted sense of honour, especially in the realm of paying debts. He is more selfish and even willing to kill his former friends or, at least, allow them to die without compunction. He makes a deal with a legendary wizard from the past, allowing the latter to work through himself. Thus, he transitions, in a very real sense, into two characters united in one body. This is strange, and it serves as the springboard to the following trilogy, Dragonlance Legends. This is a grand finale to a grand set of books. I highly recommend it, though, of course, you should start out with the first book, Dragons of Autumn Twilight, if you haven't read it.
