30 gifts for 30 days of November - Day 14
Here is the fourteenth of thirty Better Than a Poke in the Eye recommended gifts for the book lover in your life even if that book lover is YOU!
Today's recommendation is Dragonlance Chronicles by Margaret Weis and Tracey Hickman.
Dragonlance Chronicles is an omnibus collection of three novels Dragons of Autumn Twilight, Dragons of Winter Night and Dragons of Spring Dawning. The novels follow a band of adventurers recently reformed after a five year gap. They witness a mysterious woman use a blue staff to heal a villager. They investigate and soon find themselves in great danger.
For Jason this was the first time he remembers being genuinely upset at the death of a major character in a novel. He remembers revisiting the previous pages looking to see if he missed something important. Then realising that no, this was the end of the journey for that character. He then mourned with the remaining characters in the story the loss of their companion.
This might not be the high fantasy of Tolkien but it is a story about companionship, comradery, adventure, betrayal and death. But with added magic and dragons thrown in for good measure.
