    That line is unfortunately not from this book, nor even from this universe. However, in addition to being a favourite of mine, it describes this book perfectly.

    The War of the Lance is over. The Queen of Darkness and her Dragon Highlords have been defeated against all odds. But Krynn is devastated by the conflict, and new dangers lurk in the shadows. In solitude in the Tower of High Sorcery, a familiar wizard is setting his master plan into motion…

    With the beginning of the second trilogy of DragonLance novels, Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman take the leap from classical, cliché-ridden, D&D fantasy, to something much more interesting. Time of the Twins is the first real step on the path to this universe getting an identity of its own.

    In some ways, this is more of the same. In others, it’s a vast improvement. Characterisation has changed a lot. For the better. But the setting and storylines are similar to what we see in the first trilogy.

    Overall however, this is definitely my favourite DragonLance book so far. And look, it even has good writing!

    “It is easy to have hope in the spring, warrior, when the weather is warm and the vallenwoods are green. It is easy to have hope in the summer, when the vallenwoods glitter with gold. It is easy to have hope in the fall when the vallenwoods are as red as living blood. But in the winter, when the air is sharp and bitter and the skies are gray, does the vallenwood die, warrior?”

    “Who spoke?” Caramon cried, staring around wildly, clutching his sword in his trembling hand.

    “What does the vallenwood do in the winter, warrior, when all is dark and even the ground is frozen? It digs deep, warrior. It sends its roots down, down, into the soil, down to the warm heart of the world. There, deep within, the vallenwood finds nourishment to help it survive the darkness and the cold, so that it may bloom again in the spring.”

    “So?” Caramon asked suspiciously, backing up a step and looking around.

    “So you stand in the darkest winter of your life, warrior. And so you must dig deep to find the warmth and the strength that will help you survive the bitter cold and the terrible darkness. No longer do you have the bloom of spring or the vigor of summer. You must find the strength you need in your heart, in your soul. Then, like the vallenwoods, you will grow once more.”

    This was the first book I read when I started my new bus/train commute. But, this was not the first Dragonlance book I’ve ever read. It was the tenth. Dragonlance is a gigantic moneymaking franchise that runs off the insatiable appetites of geeks, among which I count myself. It’s almost besides the point for me to review the book at all, because it’s so niche. Either you “get it” or you don’t. But, shoot, I’ll give it a try.

    The original Dragonlance trilogy (which I read in high school) was about

    The original Dragonlance trilogy (which I read in high school) was about a group of friends living in a fantasy world in which a medievalesque society exists alongside magic, gods, monsters, etc. The friends become unlikely heroes who play a central part in saving the world. Time of the Twins is the first book of a follow-on trilogy that focuses on the further adventures of two (and a half) of the original adventurers: twin brothers Caramon and Raistlin. These two characters will always have a soft spot in my heart. Big-hearted, simple-minded, strong and tough Caramon; frail, sickly, brilliant, manipulative Raistlin. Caramon is one of the world’s greatest fighters, and Raistlin one of it’s most potent wizards. They love each other and they hate each other. In every pair of brothers, or even friends, one is usually the Raistlin and one is the Caramon. I’ve been both.

    The “and a half” is the pint-sized thief Tasslehoff. He’s a recurring character who is supposed to be comic relief, and he’s hit or miss. Sometimes he’s annoyng as crap, and sometimes he makes me laugh.

    But mostly the story is about Caramon and Raistlin, as they begin a new adventure. They end up going back in time, where Raistlin learns the secrets of a legendary wizard and Caramon becomes an infamous gladiator (and Tasslehoff causes general mischief), just before a Cataclysm is sent by the gods to punish a prideful humanity. And set the scene for book 2! Like I said, if you’re a geek, this stuff is GREAT – all action and imagination. If that’s not your cup of tea, it probably all seems silly and/or needlessly complicated. I eat this stuff up.

    There really is some good character development between the brothers, you just have to wade through a lot of genre tropes to get to it. But that characterization elevates the twins’ story above your usual sword-n-sorcery hackwork. There’s a general consensus among Dragonlance fans that “Legends” (as this trilogy about Caramon & Raistlin is known) is the best among the literally hundreds of other Dragonlance volumes, and that’s probably true.

    I love this book despite the fact that about half of it is steeped in serious suckiness. The fact is, at least for me, that the excellent bits in Time of the Twins are far more excellent than the excellent bits in the three Dragonlance books that preceded this one (and those books had some excellent bits), making Time of the Twins a favourite of mine.

    Sucky Bits:
    Sucky — This story hinges on the corruption of the Kingpriest of Istar. The Kingpriest arrogantly (and weakly) calls on the gods to com

    Sucky Bits:
    Sucky — This story hinges on the corruption of the Kingpriest of Istar. The Kingpriest arrogantly (and weakly) calls on the gods to come down as peers and help him wipe evil from Krynn (the World of Dragonlance for the uninitiated). This is a solid idea for fantasy fiction, and it allows Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman to express their idea about the need for equilibrium between good and evil. The problem is that we never see enough of the Kingpriest, his court, his “good/bad works” or anything else related to him to fully accept the Cataclysm he brings to Krynn.

    The authors rely on our Dragonlance-fed understanding of Krynn’s history to fill in the Kingpriest-gaps rather than giving us the time we need in Istar to damn the Kingpriest ourselves. We know he’s arrogant and foolish because we’re told he is, not because they make us believe it. And that is sucky.

    Suckier — Something similar happens with the other important characters in Time of the Twins. The gladiators, Kiiri and Pheragas, the priests, Quarath and Denubis, and the slavers, Raag and Arack, aren’t given anywhere near the time they need to fulfill their potential as characters — not even as supporting characters. Kiiri and Pheragas are supposed to be important to Caramon, but we’re left to assume and accept their importance based on some barely developed camaraderie. Quarath, Arack and Raag are supposed to be the story’s supporting villains, but they never movie beyond the Sneak, the pseudo-Mobster and the Muscle. Denubis (who returns later in the series) is the one true cleric left for Crysania to meet, and just as we are beginning to like him he disappears with an old, father-time style, Elven cleric. And all this is suckier.

    Suckiest — Tasslehoff Burrfoot. Tas is a favourite from the Dragonlance Chronicles. He is the lovable kender from who befriended a god and imbued the original stories with a sense of wonder. The authors lost their way with his character, though. He was designed to be a full-grown adult from a race cursed with insatiable curiousity and no fear. He is touched by the War of the Lance, and he learns how to fear for the lives of those he loves, which should make for a more mature character, a wiser more sober character. But Weis & Hickman blow it. They turn Tas into a little boy. He feels like an insufferable, annoying, spoiled four year old. And that is the suckiest of all.

    Excellent Bits:
    Excellent — All those sucky problems are offset by some cool stuff, though. One excellent element of Time of the Twins is Lady Crysania. She’s second in commmand of the newly revived Order of Paladine — cold, haughty, and utterly convinced of her natural superiority. But all that changes when she meets and is challenged by Raistlin, the dark wizard who has become the “Master of Past and Present.” Her intellectual awakening at the hands of Raistlin is excellent.

    Excellenter — Caramon Majere, twin brother of Raislin, has his own struggle, but his is more a recovery than an awakening. He’s a broken man when the story begins: broken by war, broken by being unnecessary when there’s none left to kill, broken by his love for his brother. His story is the simplest, but also one of the most emotionally satisfying. Not a false note is struck in Caramon’s rebirth, and there is even a promise of something more to come. This is even excellenter.

    Excellentest — Nothing compares to the opening chapter in Raistlin’s journey to become a god, however. Time of the Twins is Raistlin’s tale, and when he’s onstage the story is better than any other thing Weis & Hickman have collaborated on. Raistlin does terrible things, it’s true; he wears black robes (the mark of an evil wizard on Krynn), he murders people, he hungers for power, he manipulates and controls, he lies, and the god he wants to replace is Takhisis, the Queen of Darkness. He is a bad ass extraordinaire. But he also cares. He cares about dignity, he cares about the poor, he cares about the meek, he cares about his friends, he cares about his brother. He shows mercy, compassion and wisdom that no other character in all six of the core Dragonlance books possesses. He may be a badass, but he’s also a hero, making him one of my all time favourite Fantasy characters. Raistlin’s story is the excellentest part of Time of the Twins.

    The biggest problem with Dragonlance Legends, then, and the main reason for the suckiness in Time of the Twins, is that each installment of the three part series needed three parts to be fully realized. This series should have stretched over nine volumes, only then could it have achieved its full potential. But that’s okay. I love it anyway. Even with all its flaws (yeah…I know…it’s probably a nostalgia thing).
