One spring day Tasslehoff Burrfoot comes to Solace,accidentally pockets a copper bracelet,and forcibly makes the acquaintance of Tanis Half-Elven and Flint Fireforge.A simple tale.Except that the fate of the entire race of dargonesti sea elves hangs in the balance.
How does this piece of kender-coveted jewelry lead the companions and a sea elf princess to ally w/the phaethons,creatures w/wings of flame?The answer lies w/a mysterious mage,a broker of souls,who knows the bracelet's secret and has a hideous plan to rule the Black Robes.
Its always hard to find a good dragonlance book. They are so diverse! Mainly because of the conflicting story lines from numerous authors, but i found all the meeting of the sextet books to be interesting. They were lacking in a few ways, but I really liked this one, Tas is one of my favorite characters.
To see where he came to be friends with Flint and Tanis is quite cool. I was expecting a little more information but it was a fun read, and before i read these books i always knew that Tanis and Flint were the oldest, half elf and dwarfs live a long time, then so do kenders so i knew Tas had to be like the 3rd to meet the friends.
Even though technically in the 'time-line' of dragonlance, these books happened BEFORE autumn twilight and the original trilogy, i still recommend that people read the main trilogy before these books, i think its just better that way! So i definately read in publication order not chronological order, but thats just my preference :P
