    War returns to Krynn The Dragonarmies are on the march once And in the shadows Raistlin Majere prepares for his ultimate test the final confrontation with the ueen of Darkness Test of the Twins was a surprisingly good ending to the Legends trilogy just as Dragons of Spring Dawning was a surprisingly good ending to the Chronicles trilogy Both of those saved their respective sub series from hopeless mediocrity after very disappointing middle books and ended up making both trilogies look like the legends of fantasy that they areThis book still had some of the things I hated about the second book but some of the scenes in this one were amazing And of course it made me look even forward to start exploring this huge universe for realI have now finished the two classic DragonLance trilogies and must say I am positively surprised overall I thought it would be a disaster though so it might be hard not to be positively surprised Still these books are amazingly enjoyable even to people who aren't in their early teens

    Every time I finish this series my first thought is always the sameWhat is a respectable amount of time to wait before I can read this series again?

    A very satisfying end to the Twins Trilogy And great character development for both twins Raistlin will always always be my favorite character in any DD novel Period I keep thinking about who I'd cast as him in a blockbuster adaptation He has to be super scrawny sickly sneering but super charming master manipulator So confident that he can do anything including walk into the Abyss kill the Dark Goddess and take her place? Loki go away You aren't good enough for this role You need to be as smart as Moriarty as ruthless as that jerk from 24 and as confident as Thanos Who do we have that could fit that bill anyway? I can't even imagineBack to the novel and the capstone of this trilogy Test of the Twins is super fascinating but it's not without its flaws Or the flaws that I think they are anyway I never cared much for Tanis He gets a lot of facetime here On the other hand I absolutely adore the hulking brute of Raistlin's brother now and the smart alec kinder has grown on me Especially since they did so much time travelingThe best part is the multiple futures and all the branching paths that had to be corrected A lot of tragedy but also a lot of excellent adventure Dragons galore Undead Wizards Destroyed worlds Immense magical battles and tons of mindfery This deserves to be in the fantasy hall of fame For real It still remains a good sight better than most of the fantasy that keeps churning out today That's saying a lot because I think a lot of modern fantasy beats the old stuff By a lot And weirdly enough I can count this as a classic despite my prejudice against franchise fiction It's worth reading period if you like fantasy

    Our last hope thought Tanis a dark elf This is insane It can't be happeningLeaning against the stone table he let his head sink into his hands Name of the gods he was tired His body ached his wounds burned and stung He had removed the breast plate of his armor it felt as heavy as a gravestone slung around his neck But as much as his body hurt his soul hurt worseMemories flitted about him like the guardians of the Tower reaching out to touch him with their cold hands Caramon sneaking food off Flint's plate while the dwarf had his back turned Raistlin conjuring up visions of wonder and delight for the children of Flotsam Kitiara laughing throwing her arms around his neck whispering into his ear Tanis's heart shrank within him the pain brought tears to his eyesNo It was all wrong Surely it wasn't supposed to end this wayTest of the Twins is the final novel in the Dragonlance 'Legends' trilogy Originally published in 1986 it has enjoyed unusual longevity for a Dungeons Dragons trade novel testament to its benchmark ualityThe edition reviewed is the latest release and the first time that the novel has enjoyed a hard cover Illustrated with the same Matt Stawicki painting that graced the most recent paperback edition this release continues the hardcover releases of the Dragonlance Chronicles in 2003The authors Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman should need little introduction to fans of Dragonlance between them they have written all of the core books of the Dragonlance novel line creating some of the best known and most loved characters of Dungeons and Dragons literature many of whom beside the twins Tanis Kitiara Lord Soth Lord Gunthar Tika continue their roles in this novel They have also collaborated on such projects as the Darksword Trilogy the Death Gate Cycle the Starshield novels and the Sovereign Stone Trilogy They have enjoyed a great deal of success outside of their well known collaboration with books such as The Immortals and Reuiem of the Stars Hickman and the Star of the Guardian novels and The Soulforge WeisThe Test of the Twins begins where the previous book left off with the unlikely allies dark wizard Raistlin Majere and the devout cleric Crysania about to open the portal to the Abyss in order to enter and confront the ueen of Darkness Raistlin through his time traveling endeavors has assumed the mantle of a legendary evil wizard of past times and is following literally in his footsteps on a dangerous path to re write history in his favorChasing behind Raistlin is his twin brother Caramon accompanied by the kender Tasslehoff Burfoot Caramon's heart wrenching uest to save his brother if he can but to ultimately stop him at any cost is the test that the twins must faceAlthough the conclusion of the trilogy Legends is so closely tied to the previous trilogy that the six books could be viewed as one saga As the climax Legends does not disappoint Gathering momentum and building to a satisfying conclusion the authors truly manage to make you feel for the characters both the good and the evil and as such are able to deliver some truly poignant scenes and genuine tugs at the heart stringsTest of the Twins serves not only as a gratifying and compellingly exciting climax to the trilogy but also to the story that began six books ago with the start of Chronicles If one has invested the time and you should to read each of the novels in succession you are able to truly appreciate the depth of the characters to care for them and share in their joys and sorrowsThe characters themselves are written with outstanding clarity and development even Tasslehoff lovable to some but irritating to others has evolved beyond mere comic relief to become a sadly mature person scarred by personal loss and griefNot really a fumble but a word of wisdom to the new reader Do not plan to pick up this book having read none of the others in this trilogy and hope to appreciate it to its fullest Although the plot would not be difficult to pick up the characters and the story deserve to be read in fullBegin with The Soulforge by Margaret Weis progress from there to the Chronicles Trilogy and then the Legends trilogy To do otherwise would be to do the Test of the Twins and yourself a great injusticeI would highly recommend this and other Dragonlance novels to anyone who hasn't yet discovered them They are a cut above most of the rest of the Dungeons Dragons novels and it was not for nothing that these were the books that began it all Or if like me you have fond memories of these books but have not picked them up in some time then that time has come The new editions are beautiful re releases and the words on their pages than stand the test of timeBuy this book if you a enjoyed the other books of the Dragonlance Chronicles Legends or War of Souls or b enjoyed the Sovereign Stone trilogy by Margaret Weis and Tracy HickmanFinal Grade A

    For what shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?That's probably the uestion Raistlin Majere should have asked himself before setting off on his epic uest to take the place of Takhisis the Dark ueen Krynn's five headed dragon god of evilBut y'know mistakes were made So time travel After Caramon and Tasslehoff spend some time in the future they finally return to the present day just in time to meet up with Tanis who's going to be helping to defend the holy city of Palanthas from the onslaught of Kitiara Raistlin Caramon's half sister Dragonlord while Raistlin's path takes him to the Abyss itself in company with the cleric Crysania for whom he most certainly doesn't have feelings As I said in the review of the first book of the trilogy this was a surprising follow up to the original Dragonlance Chronicles despite all of the time travel war c it's a surprisingly intimate story of redemption although exactly whose redemption might be up for debate; and when things reach their end they are surprisingly melancholy

    This almost got bumped down to three stars because I cannot be gin to tell you how much I still don't care about Tanis and Kitiara but while the good bits were smaller than in the first two books they were in some ways even sweeter Crysania buys a clue Caramon manages to find a small bit of balance between total dependence on Raistlin and total repudiation of him Raistlin remains fascinatingly ambiguous Did he stop Takhisis at the last minute because he realized that winning would be wrong or did he stop because he realized that winning would be no fun at all for him? Does it matter?In short it was a lovely reread of the whole series and it almost makes me want to plow through the Chronicles again

    Dragonlance Legends is actually a good series And that's weird because game inspired books do tend to suck big time I give most credit for complexity of Raistlin's character and for the fact that Caramon suffers from PTSD And that's just great because too often fantasy heroes tend to be completely immune to distress and we know that human mind doesn't work that way

    After feeling the first book in this trilogy felt rushed and thoroughly enjoying the second one and watching the characters really come into their own this one took my breathe away and broke my heart For the first time since I began reading these books I saw Caramon as than just Raislin's twin or the brute force of the group I saw him as a person who has become whole and found himself which I suspect is what was intended The appearances of both Tanis and Kitiara were nice touches and Tasslehoff was written as less of an annoyance than he came off in the previous two books which I was extremely happy to see What can I say I'm a kender loving foolBut as has been the case throughout all of the books my heart was with Raistlin It was my desire to see if my feelings about him were going to be validated in the end that made me devour this book in one sitting Throughout the trilogy we've seen him wrestle with his desire for power and the humanity that burns somewhere inside of him which he tries so desperately not to give in to A being of seemingly total evil willing to challenge the ueen of Darkness and attempt to take her place amongst the gods he's done unspeakable things and is past the point of redemption or is he? An incredibly satisfying ending

    Seuels are rarely as goos as the original The Legends trilogy is actually better than the original Raistlin is one of my all time favourite characters and I know I'm not alone here The relationship between the brothers is heart wretching If you love fantasy and have not read this book yet do it now Classic

    Test of the Twins is the third and last book of Dragonlance Legends series which was written by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman in 1986After reading the first two books of Legends series I’ve been expecting from Test of the Twins I expect a different ending for this novel but I could not find what I expected and the end did not satisfy meIn this novel you will read mostly Caramon’s adventures and also in this novel Tanis and Kitiara has roles I could not learn what Raistlin is thinking and why he takes the actions in this novel because there are really few parts in this novel and most of them are just shallow partsIt would be nice to write on Raistlin’s feelings in this book
