I am a Raistlin fan, so I have yet to meet a book about Raistlin I did not like. A dark, sadistic mage seeking to be come the greatest wizard the world has ever known. Charming caring reluctant warrior along for the ride. One needing the other more then he will admit.

Once again Weis and Hickman have made a Dragonlance junky very happy. I have yet to find any of the Dragonlance books that I haven't enjoyed.

Saving a soul, October 19, 2004
Reviewer: Fan of Z (Limbo)

Test of the twins, the concluding novel in the Dragonlance Legends trilogy, is the story of "saving a soul". The story is, in my opinion actually the concluding novel in the six volume series compiled of both the Dragonlance Chronicles and the Legends. The novel effectively and entertainingly ties off nearly all of the loose ends and left me with a distinct feeling of completeness.

In the author's own words, the book is about "saving a soul". The reader is, and was in previous editions, led to believe that it is Raistlin's soul that needs saving, however it is not; it is his twins'.
Caramon, the twin, is the one who needs saving. He is Raistlin's opposite and keeping with the theme of the series, his soul must be saved by the light in order to balance the evil of Raistlin.

The authors also do a reasonable job of dealing with time travel. The pebble, Tasselhoff, is superb in his role and is easily the "best" character in the series, with Fizban coming a close second. Fizban in his limited role, almost seems as a kender himself.

About the only part of the novel that I did not like was the limited definition of magic. The term casting of a spell means nothing more than it says, more details are needed.

I would recommend this novel and series to anyone looking for an easy, fun, engaging read!

From the back: Raistlin casts the magical spell that has cost him so much. For him, the Portal opens. . . And Raistlin enters the Abyss, prepared to face his most deadly challenge-- Takhisis, Queen of Darkness.

In case you haven't read the first one let me say again: These books are beautifully written, impossible to put down, and all together captivating. Years after reading about them I can still picture the characters in my mind as I type this review.
