I have always loved the origonal Dragonlance series, I even found the War of Souls somewhat entertaining, but this latest series is almost a punishment to read. It seems the author just went back and renamed some old characters and stuck them in a new book. There was nothing compelling or exciting to read. The character of Mina has to be one of the most weak minded women playing at being powerful that I have ever read. The God of Death is basically a rip off from Anne Rice's Lestat character. I was truly dissapointed.

The character of Mina, and the Monk Rhys, kept this book really interesting, and hard to put down, I immediatly went out and bought the other 2 books of the 3 book series, and will probably have them all read in about 2 weeks.

After reading the War of Souls trilogy, I was anxious to get to this book to see what becomes of Mina. I was surprised by the unexpected turn at her fortune and the new "characters" in her life. The book direction was unexpected but interesting. Admittedly, the book does carry a little more "passion" in Mina's character that didn't do much for me. But, all in all, I enjoyed the book to continue reading how the series I've grown to thoroughly enjoy over the years concludes. It is a must read for the Dragonlance fan, and hopefully enticing at a glance for newcomers to start from the beginning in order to get to this point.

I always enjoy the Dragonlance fantasy series and especially the writings og Margaret Weis. She has created a deep and rich world of characters, setting, and storyline.

Following on from the War of the Souls, Amber and Ashes followed Mina in to a new game of chess, where the Gods are manoeuvring mortals for their own dastardly plans. All other plot lines feature new characters which are well fleshed out and have interesting arcs, with enough nods to the previous novels to keep fans nodding in appreciation. Weis's standalone writing is fine, featuring a less levity than her previous work with Hickman, which creates a darker and tighter novel. An entertaining page-turner, Amber and Ashes is solid start to a new trilogy and is a worthy addition to this legendary series.

The War of Soiuls is over, Takhisis is dead. And Mina? She became the follower of another god. An evil god who wants to rule entire world (suprise, suprise...). The sequel to the War of Souls trilogy maybe not Weis' best story but it's a must for the lovers of Krynn.

Well, after reading almost all of the Dragonlance books, I finally decided to pick up a copy of Amber and Ashes. I already despised Mina, but I felt that I needed to read it anyways. I found myself really enjoying the plot and characters. Rhys is a fairly interesting dude . . . and Nightshade isn't just your everyday kender. After reading about the Dragonlance deities, I really didn't like them much. But after reading Amber and Ashes and Amber and Iron, I've learned to like them a tad bit more. Even though Zeboim can be annoying sometimes, and the characters have a few flaws, the book is great.
