This book takes place during the Dragonlance universe. It is a prequel to the original trilogy and has our heroes from that trilogy. This tells the story of how minotaurs are trying to conquer this world but our heroes attempt to stop them. I imagine the outline of this story was enjoyable but I did not like the complete story. My biggest problem with this story is it is too epic for our heroes. Part of the attraction of the original trilogy is that our heroes are forced into this epic adventure. This book negates that aspect because this adventure is so epic and the original trilogy would have been another day at the office.
I believe the author did a good job with the characters but I question her use of them. Tasslehoff is a personal favorite of mine and in this book the author had him act not as his normal self and this was on purpose as it was vital to the plot. I did not enjoy this plot arc at all. I believe this was an nice story but it needed a totally new cast of characters.
It did not work with our established characters. This wasn't the best supplemental book for this universe. I was looking forward to visiting these beloved characters but by the end I was wishing that they were not in this novel. I believe this book needed a breath of fresh air to be enjoyable. Jun 21, J. Cauthon rated it liked it. Once again, a Dragonlance novel that is nowhere as fulfilling as the original series. As this was part of a prequel series, I was not expecting it to go so overboard on the epic-quest concept.
The Companions: Dragonlance: Meetings Sextet, Book 6 (Unabridged)
With the original series, the characters were supposedly thrust into their first epic adventure together, so with this prequel series sending them on one before the other happened chronologically--yep, series contradiction. That made it hard for me to get into. And then the characters were nothing like the Once again, a Dragonlance novel that is nowhere as fulfilling as the original series. And then the characters were nothing like the original characters created by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman.
Same names, supposed the same characters, but their actions and personalities made them come off as completely different people. And to have Tasslehoff behave completely out of character simply to satisfy a plotline--ugh. Absolutely angering. The adventure was a decent one, and I was about to enjoy it now as an adult, but I feel that the author could have taken more time with the original cast of Dragonlance and done a better job.

I wish this book was longer. Everybody all together, before crap starts getting real I especially of course, big shock here love Raistlin. He's such a little badass, and not quite the enormous dick that he is slightly later in Dragons of Autumn Twilight. Okay, the badguy isn't the greatest or most threatening, but I really love the gang and their interactions, and that falls apart view spoiler [after DoAT hide spoiler ]. There's also a bit of foreshadowing for the events that occur Aww There's also a bit of foreshadowing for the events that occur later, including the deal with Kitiara.
I'll probably go reread this, because sometimes I like ridiculous, silly awesome fantasy. Jul 28, Tim rated it really liked it Shelves: dragonlance , fantasy , reviewed , own. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

Het is soms langdradig vooraleer er tot actie wordt overgegaan, maar ik snap dat Tina haar verhaal wilde opbouwen.
