The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Spring Dawning Part 2, Chapters 2 and 3

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread. Last week was pretty epic. The tide, she hath turned! Disco dragons and Dragonlances and Golden Generals and Knights and Palanthians are reclaiming Krynn from the Dragonarmies, and, as they say in every bad television episode ever, “nothing can go wrong!”.

Except, well, it can. Because Kit is clever… so what are the forces of Evil up to? Let’s have a looksee.

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Spring Dawning Part 1, Chapter 9 and Part 2, Chapter 1

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Last time, Laurana was named commander of the Knights of Solamnia just in time to welcome a flight of friendly dragons led by Gilthanas and Silvara—having recently escaped from the Highlord at Sanction, they had some bad news for Laurana regarding Tannis and Kitiara… This week, Tas and Flint ride into battle, and the citizens of Kalaman celebrate the ‘Spring Dawning Festival’ (convenient!).

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Last time, a raging Raistlin trashed a library while Laurana played diplomat and tried to get Palanthas to take the war seriously. This week, Laurana gets an unexpected promotion, and some old friends join the frey, though not without a little drama and heartbreak.

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Chronicles Reread!

Last time, things got dark as Raistlin gave in to the power of the dragon orb and his own selfish desires, and Tanis was carried off on a dragon by Kitiara. This week, Raistlin seeks help from a super-librarian, and Laurana gets no respect from the nobles of Palanthas.

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Last time we suffered through heavy-handed song about Kitiara’s dark and poisonous beauty, and a flashback that showed Berem accidentally killing his sister Jasla in a fit of greed-induced rage. This time we begin the final Dragonlance Chronicles book in earnest, as Tanis slinks out of Kitiara’s bed and back to his friends…

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Winter Night, Epilogue

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Last week was a little traumatic—perhaps the series’ most memorable moment, but also it’s most heart-breaking. This week, the book’s final chapter, is about the aftermath. Is this a time for healing? For despair? Let’s see how our heroes are handling their loss…

[Very dark. Very stormy.]

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Last week, Derek lead a doomed campaign against the Dragonarmies. Meanwhile, Tas wandered off to the High Clerist’s Tower and found another dragon orb—and he may have figured out a way to use it. This week, more shrieks and yells and blaring of horns from the Dragonarmies…

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread! Let’s head back to Krynn for our weekly visit. Last week, Raistlin had a run-in with the Dragon Orb while Fizban chastised Tas over his bout of petty theft.

This time, we’re going to check out the Gnomes home and visit the Council too—important decisions must be made!

We’re back! Things are accelerating! Last week we had a courtroom drama and exotic dancers and magic (kinda) and lots of POV characters and all sorts of interesting things in Occupied Krynn. This week, well—things don’t slow down much. Has Tanis successfully crowd-funded the rest of the adventure? Will the Knights do something weird and self-defeating? Will Fizban… Fizban?

Yes! All this and MORE.

[So you wanna play with magic. Boy, you should know whatcha falling for.]

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Last week we (finally) got Silvara to confess her big secret! Well, we didn’t—but Fizban did. And he’s so beyond the Fourth Wall that he’s probably reading this now. (Hi Fizban!) With Silvara spilling and Fizban fussing and Laurana listening and Gilthanas gawking and Tas taking off, we’re now out of a) alliteration and b) the Kagonesti storyline. And, frankly, thank the gods of Good, Evil and Neutrality for it.

Let’s see what our other friends are up to, shall we?

The Dragonlance Chronicles Reread: Dragons of Winter Night Part II, Chapter 10

Welcome back to the Dragonlance Reread!

Remember waaaay back when we were super-excited about following #TeamLaurana and their adventures? Those halcyon days of youth, when elf-politics seemed exciting, and the worst thing we had to complain about was Gilthanas’ dating technique? That was a long time ago. But, huzzah! We are at the end of this section! No more wandering in the wilderness, and best of all, time to learn…
