Black Talon Reviews
My actual rating is 3.5 starsThis is the beginning of a trilogy that is set in the world of Dragonlance. This book deals with the character Golgren who we met in the trilogy known as "The Minotaur Wars". Golgren wants to unite the ogre empire but other factions have different ideas.When one reads a Richard Knaak book in this world one expects a massive amount of death and destruction and he delivers. There are a number of interesting characters and plots throughout this book. Golgren is a great character and I was immediately invested in him and his plans. There is intrigue and machinations from other characters that keep the plot going. There is a vast array of different characters including the elf woman slave or the captured human knight. The reason I did not give this a higher rating is that this is also a set up novel with several plots that will be answered in the subsequent books. This is a good introduction to a new trilogy and I am looking forward to continuing this series. I never thought I would like a book with an ogre as the main character but I do as the character is terrific and I really enjoyed the picture the author painted of the ogre homeland.
It's always fun to read about the other races of Krynn. I loved how Knaak explained the origin of the Ogre race.
interesting variation on standard fantasy in as much as it focuses on the "monsters" and not in a Twilight sort of way!
A must read series. Even better if read along with the Minotaur series! Couldn't put them down!!!!
kind of slow starting compared to other dragonlance books but once it got going there was all kinds of intrigue and betrayal going on
Story was ok. Nothing that I would read over again.
more for serious readers that have read other dragon lance books, other than that it was good and has a nice story to tell
