Dj Toasty said Amazing Read. I went into this book with eyes of the skeptic, and I was wrong. I have never really gotten into "Riverwind", or "Goldmoon" for that matter, but in this book, I really warmed up to the character.The story was great, It didnt leave big holes, or you were never left wondering about things. I have allready been a big fan of Mr. Pierson, and this was no let down. I really hope to see some more stories about Kronn, and Catt, the Kender Brother and Sister.In the past, I have found Kender to be, well, typical annoying Kender, but, in this story, I just wanted to go meet everyone of them, (Before I'd still empty my pockets out, I mean, they are stil. One of the best solo Dragonlance novels I have been a fan of Dragonlance for almost 15 years, having first read the original trilogy (Dragonlance Chronicles: Dragons of Autumn Twilight, Dragons of Winter Night, and Dragons of Spring Dawning) when I was around age 13.

First off, I have to say that this is probably the best written Dragonlance book I've read outside of Weis & Hickman's work. Most impressive is Pierson's strong grasp of the characters. Riverwind was handled brilliantly and I liked how he gave the different kender separate personalities and didn't make them carbon copies of Tasslehoff like many other authors do. His pacing was also excellent, with enough "down time" for character development in between fight scenes, but not so much that the story starts to drag.I was disappointed when, in THE SECOND GENERATION, Riverwind and Goldmoon's children were mentioned, but we never got to meet them.
