Sep 04, Krystyna Andersen added it. Personal Response I enjoyed this book because it explored more about a character that I really liked.
roathreadgenmilea.ml It's a pretty straight forward story-line. I feel the story isn't very complex compared to some of the other books. Plot Characterization Recommendation I would recommend this book to young adults. People who enjoy fantasy and like a well written world. If they have a lot of time to read many books.

The ending may be a bit too fast written, simple and cut short. En hoe ze dan opgepakt worden, strijden voor gerechtigheid, op hun weg terug naar de bovengrond enkele draconians en goblins uit de weg moeten ruimen In het echt hebben we pendelaars e.
Spijtig genoeg is het hij die later het loodje legt. Ik had gedacht dat hij weer zou opgenomen worden in de Que Shu groep. Het einde was wel een beetje flets, 'k had meer actie verwacht. Maar da's slechts een klein onderdeel en van minder belang. Jun 21, J. Cauthon rated it it was ok. This is, by far, one of my least favorite Dragonlance novels. I read it from the beginning to end when I was in high school, simply because it was part of the saga and I wanted the whole story.
When I went back to write this review, I really could not remember anything about it, so I voluntarily reread it--for about one hundred pages. This was the biggest bunch of drivel I've ever read. The descriptions go on and on and never really describe anything that we need to know.
Also, I love This is, by far, one of my least favorite Dragonlance novels. Also, I love cliffhanger endings as much as the next reader, but it felt like every other chapter ended on a cliffhanger where Riverwind is one step away from death, only to be miraculously saved at the beginning of the next chapter. It was boring, repetitive, and I really wish I could get back the hour I spent reading those first one hundred pages.
Aug 07, Lana rated it it was amazing. WOW a great book, one I am so glad to have read since Riverwind had always been a man in the background always supporting Goldmoon but this is a book all about this great hero, one who lived for his one true love and his belief in the old gods!!
I'd like to state that this is a pretty good read, compared to the first Preludes series. It's meant to be for light reading so if you're not too nitpicky, the story is entertaining enough. It deals with Riverwind's courting quest for Goldmoon. The early parts are a bit slow and while the action picks up later on, the plot is somewhat implausible.
But the characters involved are all interesting enough to still be able to carry the story.

There are also some inaccuracy with regards to character a I'd like to state that this is a pretty good read, compared to the first Preludes series. There are also some inaccuracy with regards to character ages, their relationships, and the timeline, so how much you like it might also be determined by how easily irked are you when it comes to shoddy inaccuracies like these.
Aug 21, Jim C rated it liked it. My actual rating is 3. A book that takes place in the world of Dragonlance. This tells the story of Riverwind's quest to find evidence of the gods and win Goldmoon's hand. The first half of the book had a good idea but was a little slow. The second half of the book was fantastic and what one expects while reading Dragonlance. It contained plenty of action and tugged at the reader's emotions with the virtues that were displayed. I recommend this book for this reason. Just make My actual rating is 3. Just make sure you get through the first half to enjoy this book.
It took me a while to get into it, about pages, but once I did, I really got into it. The details and descriptions were able to paint a very vivid picture in my head. This is the first DragonLance novel I've read out of the many my uncle gave to me that he'd previously read. Mar 05, Philana Walker rated it really liked it Shelves: adolescent-bliss. Riverwind and Goldmoon are two of my favorite characters.
This story is fantastic. Riverwind is the social outcast and Goldmoon and her family self-proclaimed gods. Riverwind has to prove himself in order to win her hand. Talk about two mismatched lovers. But their story needs to be told to better understand their relationship later. May 04, Brett McNew rated it really liked it. The first 'full length' novel I ever read. It's not great. Honestly it should be more of three star book, but I don't have the heart to rate it any lower.
As a kid it blew my mind, going back later, it was in step with the rest of the Dragonlance novels, but had some originality to it I felt. Grateful that Waldenbooks and the cover grabbed my attention. It changed the direction of my life. Dec 25, K. This is the book that got me started on fantasy novels.

I read it when I was twelve years old and stayed up passed my bedtime to finish it in one night. I actually cried when the old man died as I had become so involved in the story. I'm not sure how I would feel about it reading it today, however, it sticks out in my mind because of its impact so it gets five stars from me. Feb 24, Thomas Hansen rated it liked it. A tragic tale worth reading. It may be something I did not expect, or necessarily desire, but I did get into the story.
I ended up liking it despite the unwanted outcome.
Greatly written with many surprises. Worth reading. I think this was the best DL book I've read since the first two trilogies and the Soulforge. So good. Nov 10, Elar rated it it was ok.
