    1 thought on “Stormblade

    1. Whilst the other two volumes in the first heroes series forge new and interesting paths for Dragonlance literature in a scaring and exciting post Weis & Hickman world. Stormblade chooses to play things considerably safer; safer to the extent of going back to the D&D template of band of misfits coming together, forming a party to stave off a threat; safer in centering the narrative on a hunt for an important artefact to hunt for; safer in the familiar setting of the War of the Lance as th [...]

    2. Another great expansion on a fun world. Always fun to learn about weapons and magic that help shape the world of Krynn and that is what Stormblade is about. Those characters who move the story along and give us hope that good can overcome evil.

    3. Classic sub-Tolkien fantasy with little merit. Band of heroes mysteriously overcome infinitely powerful yet somehow incompetent opponents

    4. I read this book back in the mid 90’s if I remember correctly. At that point I was determined to read every Dragonlance novel that was ever written, and I did. And of all of those books that I ever read, this was the absolute worst of any of them.The characters were boring and forgettable and it was so uninteresting to me that I had to FORCE myself to keep reading because I lost interest in it so many times.Bottom line, this is a book you can skip unless you are like me and have to read everyt [...]

    5. I don't remember this one very well -- I seem to recall somewhat above-average (for D&D) prose and a very generic super-duper magical object plot.

    6. Another great expansion on a fun world. Always fun to learn about weapons and magic that help shape the world of Krynn and that is what Stormblade is about. Those characters who move the story along and give us hope that good can overcome evil.

    7. A king sword, named Stormblade, has been forged in the mountain kingdom of Thorbardin, home of the dwarves. The sword seems to come at a much needed time. War is quickly approaching the dwarves will not be able to hide behind their stone walls much longer. But in the midst of the excitement, betrayal brews, and Stormblade is stolen and removed from the dwarven kingdom.Years later rumor emerge of a sword that fits the description of Stormblade trickle into the mountains. Two rival clans quickly s [...]

    8. As I've said in other reviews, I'm not particularly fond of D&D fantasy novels that focuses on dwarves. Still, I read them all the same to complete the series. This book can be summarised in one word: predictable. The story is about a lost dwarven artifact that was lost and found. Two groups are looking to retrieve it: the stereotypical good guys and the stereotypical bad guys. The intrigue is mostly political but somewhat simplistic. There are several plot twists and quite a bit of action, [...]

    9. When you have read as many Dragonlance books as I have, the stories, though filled with different characters and new elements, begin to become predictable.For me, the more I read, the more I was able to see the "creation layout" of the story, or what others would call the epic fantasy story arc. It was even worse being a writer and reading this myself. I could see where the main story points were "shoved" into the story arc template.But, I do remember reading this when I was much younger, and fo [...]

    10. Ah, memories. The first book I read in the venerable Dragonlance series. I remember being a young teenager and sitting down in a quiet spot to enjoy some good solid escapism. I've reread it a couple times over the years, and with each subsequent reading my enchantment has lessened. The writing to me, as an older man, appears to be somewhat hackish, workmanlike if you will. But is that just the accretion of age and experience crusting my childlike wonder of yesteryear like a patina of cynicism? A [...]

    11. I love this book- for the way it introduces a completely new set of characters and wraps your heart around them instantly, for the way it draws the different people from their homes and twines their lives together- but most of all for the brilliant, beautiful, and simply spectacular prolouge. It details the creation of a Masterblade, a process that so closely mirrors the creation of a story I was entranced. To quote, "As the bard hears, faint but clear, the elusive melody and secret harmonies of [...]

    12. wow an absolutely breath taking book, so exciting I could not put this book down. Love the way Berberick tackles this book, had not come across this author yet in the dragonlance series but she is magnificent!! look forward to reading more books written by her!! so many died for this sword, a kingsword forged and marked in red by reorx himself as believed by the dwarfs in thorbardin!! the kender as usual steals the show for me even though he was not tasselhoff but a different kender!!

    13. This one touches on activities that happened in the first three books. We even see some of Tanis and Goldmoon as they negotiate their way into the dwarves city. I enjoyed this book as it focuses on dwarves and their unique culture and history. Again the Dragonlance world is rich and exciting and certainly makes me yearn to play DnD again.

    14. The book started off with potential, but the promise of adventure and excitement was never realized. The characters never really developed and the fact that so many died it made it hard to connect with any of them or really care if they accomplished their mission.

    15. Not the best Dragonlance book, but it was the first book of this saga I ever owned, so it's very special for me. Thanks to this I was introduced to this epica world.

    16. Campato in aria. La storia c'è, ma troppe coincidenze fortuite, troppe cose non combaciano, troppa carne al fuoco che non viene mangiata. Non ti tira con se.

    17. I was never a reader of epic fantasy and then I discovered the Dragonlance books and never looked back.
