I'm still waiting for the sequel to Brother's in Arms. One day...I yearn for more Raislin some days...
To be honest I think the series by Weis and Hickman was good, a fun read that went smothly and effortlessly(got to love Tas too), but the other books that I've read were just plain...uninteresting.
I think that the best book that I've read would not be Dragons of Summer Flame...it ended too fast...a lot of good story, and you did feel as if you were rushing toward something, but the end was just too fast. I think that Dragons of a Vanish Moon was good, but not the best, number two maybe...Test of the Twins would be my number one, just because of the realization of what we can lose if we're too self absorbed in our lives, rather than the people in our lives, and that we can destroy everything that we hold dear. The redemption of Raistlin at the end was one of the greatest moments in a book that I think I've ever read. You could see that in the end, he does love his brother, and I think the tie-up with Kitiara, Tanis, and Soth was needed as well, and done in a fitting fashion.
The only sore spots in the whole series to me was in the War of Souls trilogy. Why did so many of our heros have to die so ignominiously? Goldmoons death was needed to further the story, and was a great scene played out, but Caramon's death was rather rushed I think(he was one of the more lovable characters, and reminds me of my father). Tas finally died in the way he was "meant" to(I haven't read the new books yet, but I imagine that he'll pop up at some point, he did leave the series with the Device of Time Journeying after all, and we all know that Tas will never truely die). I'm looking forward to the new stories, but I've been to busy with other things to pick them up.
