Overview

War Among the Dragons . . .

"When dragons make war, Krynn can only tremble in the shaodw of angry wings."
-- Astinus Lorekeeper

Aurican and Darlantan, mighty serpents of gold and silver, have been nurtured in a world of wisdom, meditation, and sublime faith. On the other side of Ansalon, Crematia, a dragon of red, inherits the Dark Queen's legacy of betrayal, violence, conquest, and plunder.

The advent of a worldwide war sweeps these powerful beings and many more into desperate strife. Battles rage over Krynn with a fury that threatens to annilhilate nations and whole races -- even dragonkind. As campaigns ebb and flow, generations of lesser mortals come and go, and the great serpents are left to determine the fate of the world. Their triumphs may create a destiny of all-encompassing light or cast the world beneath the shadoe of ultimate darkness.

The Dragons

The Lost Histories Series probes the historical roots and epic struggles of little-known inhabitants of Krynn.

Whenever I wish to read a book of fantasy with dragons they're always secondary characters, or feral animals that might as well be bears with wings. In this book you follow Darlantan and his siblings which are all dragons and there is very few non-dragon interactions. I honestly wish that this book was split up to add more detail, but more so I just want more books like this. Honestly, the creatures live hundreds of years only to be slaughtered by some prepubescent twerp who fancies himself a knight? It irks me how often that's the case. I highly recommend this book if you love dragons and/or the dragonlance series.

This is among the most unique of the Dragonlance books in that it is entirely related from the dragons' point of view. This gives DL fans greater insight and appreciation of these great beasts. Douglas Niles' veteran writing offers readers an appeal to the intellect with the musings of the dragons while maintaining an exciting degree of action- resulting in a well balanced book for fans of all ages. I also enjoyed the epic scale of the story, spanning 4 generations of dragons and almost 9 millenia- not to mention the epic descriptions of everything from the various settings to the magnificent aerial battles. An excellent addition to the DL saga.

This is my absolute favorite! It is so great. The best part about it is because it is from the dragons' views, and how the dragons slowly learn how to become friends with the lesser mortals. The battles are very vivid; you can imagine them in your mind. I love the characters Aurican and Darlantan, Darlantan most of all. It is a very emotional book. I don't want to ruin it for you, so I won't tell what happens! All I know is that it is fascinating how the dragons work together to defeat the chromatic dragons. I just don't like how the bronze dragons and brass dragons act selfish when they're supposed to be the children of Paladine.

Dragons are the most powerful and feared creatures on Krynn. Time passes by them faster than that of mortals. A few years may seem like a day to them. The Dragons describes the involvement of dragons throughout the history of Krynn. Many Dragonlance fans will enjoy The Dragons.
