    A novel set in the world of Dragonlance. In this book the Knights of Solamnia know they are outmatched by the dragon overlords and the head of the knights extends an invitation to the Knights of Takhisis to become one. Not everyone is on board with this idea.I loved the idea of this book as two enemies combine their strengths to defeat a greater foe. I figured this was going to be exciting right from the beginning but it wasn't. It had such a slow start. There was a secondary storyline concerning gully dwarves and this storyline took up too much of the beginning. When the author went back to the original storyline this book was exciting. The last third of the book was terrific and I am glad I stayed with this book.As of the characters the author did an excellent job with their individual personalities. There were several characters that I really enjoyed. In my opinion some of the minor characters outshined the major characters and I would love to see a sequel to this novel with those characters. Also there is a cameo by a well known character from the "holy six" Dragonlance novels that was well done and a nice surprise.If you are trying to recapture Weis & Hickman this novel doesn't reach that atmosphere but it was a nice addition to this world.
