I liked Tanis in this book, and their oversized friend, and that was about it. Oct 17, Walker rated it liked it 2. Jul 12, Joe McLaughlin rated it did not like it So boring and slow. Sep 09, Jim C rated it liked it This book takes place in the Dragonlance world. It is set before the original trilogy. It tells the story of Tanis meeting Kitiara for the first time and their ensuing adventure.
This was a decent read that had its highlights and its share of problems. I believe the author did a terrific job with the two characters from the original trilogy.
I have always liked Kit and I enjoyed the insight to her character as she looks out for herself. On the flip side of the coin, the insight to Tanis and his This book takes place in the Dragonlance world. On the flip side of the coin, the insight to Tanis and his honor system was well done. As of the other characters they fell a little flat as we have seen these stereotypes countless times in other novels.
And that is probably the problem with this novel. There is nothing new here or anything memorable. Maybe I was hoping for a bigger "bang" for the initial meeting between these characters as this relationship plays an integral part of the original trilogy. I would only recommend this book for fans of Dragonlance as those people would enjoy the genesis of the relationship and the insights to the characters.
But beware and take this book with a grain of salt. There are a couple of inconsistencies with the overall arc.
Dragonlance: Meetings Sextet Series
The parts about Caramon and Raistlin are very good as they shed light on their childhood and their unique relationships with each other as well as Kitiara which gave it an extra star. The parts about Kitiara were disappointing though. Her character is very unique and has the potential to have very intriguing plot built around her. Too bad the plot fell short. It was like reading a couple of disjointed trivial short stories. Kit led a tough life and wanted nothing more than to adventure away from her boring home life, find her missing father and become rich and powerful. The pace did slow down a bit once she became enamored by a passing royal during one Well Kitiara, considering how you were in The Chronicles, this origin story took me by surprise.
