THE GODS RETURN As a group of companions, long separated, gather before the fire at the Inn of the Last Home, they encounter a mysterious young woman bearing a blue crystal staff and a breathtaking message: The gods have returned. Centuries before, the gods in their wrath hurled down a mountain on the empire of Istar and departed the world, enraged at the arrogance of humankind. Now they have returned. But in their wake, evil has again spread across Krynn. Strange creatures, half-human, half-reptile, lurk in dark shadows. Knights swearing allegiance to the Dark Goddess Takhisis are gathering, planning war. Fleeing from danger behind them and into unknown perils before them, the small band of friends begin their epic journey through the land of Ansalon. They must guard Goldmoon and her staff, spreading her message of hope. And they must seek the legendary weapon that can turn the battle against the terror of Takhisis. The dragonlance.

Review:

Think of it as A New Hope for the world of Dragonlance: Sure, maybe it's a little rough around the edges, maybe it's got one cliché too many, but this baby is pure magic. The first volume in the Dragonlance Chronicles series, this classic from Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman started it all for Krynn, eventually spawning a bestselling 90-plus book series. (And, frankly, you'd do well to stick to the Weis-Hickman titles.) All the heroes that you've likely heard of already--the creepy, hourglass-eyed Raistlin, the noble half-elf Tanis, the comic relief Tasselhoff Burrfoot, the curmudgeonly dwarf Flint Fireforge--they're all here, starting the good fight against the Dark Queen Takhisis as the War of the Lance begins. Pick up Dragons of Winter Night when you're done. --Paul Hughes

From the Inside Flap:

, ground-breaking, highly imaginative tale from the most phenomenonally popular fantasy authors since J.R.R. Tolkien.

Creatures of legend, the dragons have returned to Krynn. Now, the darkness of war threatens to engulf the land. Then hope appears -- a blue crystal staff in the hands of a beautiful bar barian woman. The promise of this hope forces a group of long-time friends into the unlikely roles of heroes: Tanis Half-Elven, their leader, a skilled warrior who detests fighting and is tormented by love for two women; Sturm Brightblade, Knight of Solamnia, driven to restore the honor of the knighthood; Raistlin Majere, the powerful and unsettling magic-user, whose hourglass-shaped eyes conceal dark mysteries; Caramon, Raistlin's twin, a genial giant both loved and feared by his brother; Flint Fireforge, the gruff old dwarven fighter, almost a father to them all; and Tasselhoff Burrfoot, a kender, the nuisance race of Krynn, immune to fear and followed by trouble wherever he goes.
