The Dawning of a New Age: Dragonlance: Dragons of a New Age, Book 1 (Unabridged) on Apple Books
Sort order. I love the Dragonlance world, but the story took too long to build up and contained way too much exposition. A lot happens, but I leave the book with the sense that nothing of substance happened. Still, the book is action packed once it gets going, and I did appreciate some of the characters. I also like that Rabe obviously knows the DL world well. Everything makes sense within the context of Krynn. Nothing is jarring or out of place.
Overall, I enjoyed the book enough to read on in the series. Feb 13, liquid soap rated it did not like it. Jun 14, Shanna rated it really liked it. The war is over, the world of Ansalon is trying to rebuild and pull itself back together.
Magic has disappeared, as well as the Gods, making this the New Age of Mortals. A select few of the strongest most terrifying dragons swoop in while the world is still so fragile, they proclaim their dominance and control over the land. Death and destruction follow. A new unexpected group of heroes band together to fight this seemingly new war against evil and the dragons. Will they be able to work together The war is over, the world of Ansalon is trying to rebuild and pull itself back together.
Will they be able to work together and defeat the dragons before its too late to restore order? A great addition to the dragonlance series. I love how favorite old characters make appearances in this book as they pass the torch down to the next generation of heroes. The characters are deep and relatable. Can't wait to read more. Jan 25, Shannon Appelcline rated it it was ok Shelves: fantasy , rpgs. This book's biggest problem is that it tries to entirely bridge the gap following the Summer of Chaos.
Thus we got confusing interrelations with the previous novel, following by a long span when there's no clear protagonist, as 90 pages go by. The story only really starts after that. Beyond that, the writing feels unpolished, and the romantic dialogue is particularly bad. I'm also not convinced by the super-villain evilness of the dragon overlords.
However, the book also reads quickly and has som This book's biggest problem is that it tries to entirely bridge the gap following the Summer of Chaos. However, the book also reads quickly and has some quite good action sequences. I think it would have earned 3 stars if not for the problems with the overall structure.

Dragons of a New Age
Yes, there are about four incorrect facts in the book, but I see this as an editing failure rather than a writing one. Yes, some of the dialogue is a bit on the ridiculous side. But it's still a wonderful story with great characters.
The new ones are well developed and the existing ones are true to their sources. Highly recommend to any Dragonlance fan, especially those who have thus far dodged the Fifth Age. Rowling se afana en intentar meter en la boca de los fans de Harry Potter, o esos interminables libros-enciclopedia de las casas de Juego de Tronos hechos por fans, para fans.
Tranquilo, vas a ver mucho Krynn. Tranquilo, vas a verles. Tranquilo, vas a hartarte. No los echas de menos. Y claro, no puedo competir contra algo tan divertido como el Inspector Gadget.
En serio. Aw yeah. Y de haber vuelto a Kryn. Sep 24, Alex rated it liked it. Death Gate Cycle, people! Jean Rabe. What have you done? It takes a good hundred pages and for some may be a little dry, but I enjoyed spending time with the Dragons, seeing them react to the new status quo and discovering that they could take advantage, with Skie creating the new spawn a decent stand-in for the Draconian threat from earlier books. When we finally got to our new heroes it did at least feel like they had something to fight for.
Still, there are problems. Krynn never quite feels as large and, well, magical, here as it has done in the past. Yet, I enjoyed this first entry into the Fifth Age series of books because I felt like Jean Rabe believed in it and genuinely wanted to be writing it and delivering a story for the fans and that would keep this world alive and interesting. Palin and the wizard conclave manage to work out that they can still use some magic if they draw power from magical artefacts. Meanwhile, new character Feril can perform her own kind of mystical magic which allows her to commune with animals, not needing spellbooks or memorization etc.
Back in the 80s this was essentially the appeal of the Chronicles and Legends series; they did light-hearted, frothy entertainment better than everything else. Yet personally I keep returning to this world for the fun it provides and it keeps surprising me in its ability to provide it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. A rather odd book in the DL epic, with a large portion of the narrative devoted a few exceedingly powerful dragons, who have taken over much of Krynn. Basically I wasn't too keen on reading about the dragons who are a cruel, blood-thirsty and thoroughly unpleasant lot!https://senjouin-kikishiro.com/images/bemekyd/3778.php
DragonLance: The Dawning of a New Age by Jean Rabe (1996, Paperback)
However Palin is reintroduced part way through and Goldmoon makes a token appearance, which helped to link the story back to the main saga. With a once disgraced knight along with his two fellow companions, it appears that all hope rests upon their shoulders, as they must struggle to bring the worlds back together. Will they be able to reunite the lands as they learn the truth of the dragons of winter night? Initially released in in the month of September, this was the third book in the Dragonlance Chronicles, continuing on from the last.
Allowing the readers to get involved at a far deeper level, it enables a much more immersive experience for the now loyal fan-base. Still continuing with their plights, it manages to simultaneously bring in new characters as well for the readers to invest themselves in. This can be seen evident in their preferred personality traits, which are stronger and more prominent here than before. What this then enables for the reader is more insight and more immersion, as they have more ability to choose when playing. Picking up where the last left off, this continues the struggle to unite the lands and maintain the peace following the great war that threatened to engulf them all.
Can they manage to return the peace once again and this time discover the truth behind the dragons of spring dawning?
With the fact that there have been over novels to date and counting using this franchise, it looks like the world of Krynn now has a life of its own beyond Weis or any of the other authors. The books themselves may only just be the beginning, as gaming is now expanding as an industry, largely thanks to the formulas and templates set by these forerunners of the movement.
