    There are so many DL books that it's hard to pick which ones to read. I'm interested to know which books you have read and which you are most hoping to read next.

    You really didn't like Elven Nations? That one (although I haven't read it yet) seems to be very popular usually.

    Would it be too much to ask for you to break them up like Kartaron did Dragn9?

    Sure thing Dragn9, I'm getting to it. I'll have to go find my DragonLance box under one of the best first :D From memory, I wouldn't know where to begin.

    Thanks Adina...Oh and I was just wondering...has anyone read The Last Tower: The Legacy of Raistlin? Or know of anyone who has? I REALLY want to read it but it is never available to order online. And for some reason on two different sites it says it is done by different authors: Skip Williams and William Connors...which one is the real author? Sorry if I am just blabbing...but I am really trying to figure it out!

    Amazon.co.uk carries it. I think they allow you to ship to the states. I havent read the story inside but it isnt really a novel. It is an addendum for the Fifth Age RPG. I would assume that the story is simply an overview of the Wayreth Tower itself.

    Yeah somebody else here said the same thing a while back. I found the entire series dry and uninteresting. Perhaps because I had already read the Silmarillion, which is much better.

    Chronicles
    Legends
    Summer Flame
    War of Souls
    Amber and Ashes
    Preludes

    They were all decent except for the Prelude series. It was so terrible I thought I might vomit. :eek:

    Uh, wow...that's pretty bad Turin. Maybe I'll steer clear as I haven't read that series yet.
