Introducing Dragonlance Chronicles

It is time you know about Dragonlance, if you don’t already of course. Dragonlance is a popular series it is related to the famous board game Dungeons and Dragons. Such is that connection that these series are based on Dungeons & Dragons universe and modules. This all began playing a board game,

This is an enjoyable series of fantasy books best suitable for younger readers. Dragonlance Chronicles is an Epic Fantasy in style and penned from the third-person perspective. The characters are somewhat one-dimensional but well written with simplistic and easy to read form. The great success of Dragonlance is the secret behind all the greatest fantasy series: there is a different recurrent saga, there is magic, someone, and action for everyone to note. If you ask a reader of Dragonlance who their favorite character is, they won’t be able to pick out one.

Today, teenagers may say adults who haven’t read Harry Potter do not understand magic. They fail to realize that every generation has walked on the sands of magic. Subsequently, all those who love Harry Potter books will surely love Dragonlance. Or also, you can check these other “Books like Harry Potter suggestions” post.

What is Dragonlance about?

Dragonlance book covers

 

These novels set in the world of Krynn, a place where humans coexist with magic and monsters.  In this story, Krynn no longer has the favour of the ancient gods centuries ago, a period known as the Cataclysm. The world has become a dangerous place, full of enemies and dangers.  It tells the story of a band of adventurers who reunite after five years separated, having a new journey together after discovering a powerful staff with healing powers, an ability long time no seen since the Cataclysm.

The cadre of companions is surrounded by obscure, fully fleshed characters. While King Lorac is likened to Shakespeare’s King Lear in madness. Lord Soth’s story of requited love and madness is found in Ann Radcliffe’s gothic tales. Beren, the immortal man, is seen searching for his sister who keeps the green emerald. Also seen is Fistandantilus, Par-Salian, Elistan, Bupu, Crysania, Ariakis, Gilthanas,  and many more. There is someone for every reader to latch on to, sympathize with, love or hate. The action is progressive, raging across the mountains, lands to the seas, and the skies. There are castles and towns in trees, taverns and libraries, great cities and tiny villages. There is also a Shrove where the dead reaches out, the magical tests; the Abyss, and there are dragons. No matter what, every great fantasy needs a dragon (saving David Eddings).

The authors tried their best to be creatively elaborate in these books, that you identify right the good, bad and the ugly without difficulty. There is adequate light-heartedness that abounds in this story, and the fantasy genre is evident in these series.

What will you like about Dragonlance?

The authors of Dragonlance Chronicles did an exceptional job, creating an entertaining, and reader-friendly series that enthralls and keeps readers engrossed.

Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman were able to take cognizance of the fact that all good fantasy entails that each character has a particular quest which they are known to pursue. Hence, you may;

  • love the troubled Tanis Half-Elven
  • year for either the pure Lauralanthalsa or the edgy, chaotic Kitiara
  • become fond of the dour old dwarf, Flint, or
  • find solace in the overly chivalrous Sturm.

There is the mysticism in Riverwind and Goldmoon, the bitter, powerful mage Raistlin Majere or his athletic, gladiatorial twin, Cameron. You will also love the prankish Kender, Tasslehoff, the Fellowship racing from Draconians crashing up Tika’s Inn in Solace and discovering themselves clashing with Queen Takhisis’ blue, red, green, black dragons.

Again, like in Star Wars, here we have a family doing all they can to combat evil and restore the good. According to Raistlin, “Hope is the denial of reality,” but in the end, it is the hope that is made evident.

The trilogy

The Dragonlance Chronicles is a compilation of all first three volumes of the popular Dragonlance series. Written by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman, the Chronicles consist of the following:

In this case, the proper reading order is the published order. This is at the same time the chronological order.

  • The Dragons of Autumn Twilight
  • Dragons of Winter Night
  • Dragons of Spring Dawning

Equivalent to Star Wars, the saga of the first trilogy takes us through the initial triumph seen in the Dragons of Autumn Twilight, down to gloom that loom when evil rules in Dragons of Winter Night, to final conquest in Dragons of Spring Dawning.

The extended Dragonlance universe

As the years go by, over 200 novels (such a number uh?) are already published with the Dragonlance universe as a setting. Such as the Legends, the Chronicles, The Dark Disciple, the War of Souls and a lot more.

The Dragonlance series was more than six (6) books; the second trilogy, ‘Time of the Twins’, ‘War of the Twins’, and ‘Test of the Twins’ are cleverly merged time journey into an ancient fantasy. Two futures appear; one where Raistlin becomes a God and another where he recognizes that his successes are futile, and his inner struggles ultimately let ‘good’ win. If you are willing to read Dragonlance series as a whole and you are wondering which is the reading order for this series, don’t worry, my How to Read Dragonlance series post will come soon.

Adaptations

Dragonlance had an animated movie adaptation released in 2008 by the name Dragonlance: Dragons of Autumn Twilight. This movie bases on the first novel of the Dragonlance series and was directed by Will Meugnio. Critics were predominantly negative though, which was the reason why the following books in the original trilogy didn’t have a movie adaptation. Animation didn’t meet the expectations, this was so that the coauthor, Tracy Hickman, stated the following:

“The animation itself is less than I would have hoped it to be”

Even so, if you want to watch the movie you can find it on DVD for less than 5$.

About the authors

Margaret Edith Weis is a terrific fantasy and science-fiction writer of dozens of novels and short stories. Fondly called Margaret Weis, called is one of the original creators of the Dragonlance game world, alongside Tracy Hickman and others.

Tracy Raye Hickman is also an American fantasy author who has written or co-authored dozens of novels with Dragonlance being one of his widely accepted work.

Harmony Kent books

Knowing Harmony Kent

Hello there Wottareaders! today I present you another interview, after knowing Bernard Jan this week is the turn for Harmony kent. Multigenre writer, she will not rest until her books are listed on every genre ever existed. Why should she? right? No matter if you want to read a Romance, a Horror story or if you need to improve your writing, Harmony has it for you, is there anything she doesn’t want to write about? let’s find out 😁

The woman

Who is Harmony Kent, not the writer, the woman. What can you tell us about you?

She’s quirky. And funny. And an amputee with a wicked sense of humour. This is a woman who has led many different lives. … Load planner and then stock controller for a national brewery …Office worker at a corn and seed merchant … barmaid … nurse … Zen Buddhist monk … writer and author … It seems she’s as multi-genre as her writing! Also, every day, she learns something new. She’s all about supporting her fellow writers and authors as well as friends and acquaintances.

You not only write but you also…

Read, a lot. I love movies and series too. I do jigsaws, play games like Sudoku, Woody, and Spider. And I knit and crochet. I also love cruising. I went on my first ever cruise last year and am hooked. So much so, that my honeymoon this year will be spent on a cruise ship. I also meditate.

I see you are from England, what do you love the most about your country? Has your country influenced your stories somehow?

Given that we tend to write what we know, even if it’s disguised within a planet in settled space, say, or an underwater fantasy world, I would have to say that, yes, my country has influenced my stories. Especially the way I spell and punctuate, lol. English rules and conventions differ greatly from America, etc.

Mmm, what do I love the most? Well, that would have to be where I’m living now: Cornwall. No matter the weather, it’s beautiful. Okay, so on the thick-fog days, with what we call ‘mizzle’, I have to qualify that. I hate those days, and you can’t see a thing. The mizzle thing is a mix of rainy drizzle and mist and sums up the bad days quite nicely.

I have an as yet unpublished book called The Hunter that is based around where I live in south Cornwall. One day, I promise, it will see the light of day. It’s a gripping crime thriller with plenty of twists and turns and a great who-dun-it plot.

To sum up, I love living in rural places. Cities are just not my thing. And Cornwall provides plenty of isolated spots.

Writers are such for different reasons, which was your thing that made you decide you wanted to become a professional writer? As you say on your website, you were born as an author in 2013, what made you think “it’s time”?

I left the Buddhist temple at age forty, a relatively new amputee, with life to begin from scratch. After finding somewhere to live, I then had to find something to occupy my days.

Writing had always been a great love of mine, as was reading, and so, then and there, I decided I WOULD write that book. I sat down at my computer and started typing. Since that fateful day, I haven’t stopped.

Any hobbies you want to share with us?

Reading. Writing (Yes, I know, quite a surprise, eh?!?). Knitting. Drinking Whiskey (… um, does that count as a hobby?!?)

I.M Redwright: It should!

One book, one movie, one song, one food, one sport, and one videogame?

Nope. Can’t give you this one. Whenever I’m asked for a favourite this or that, I die. Literally, lol. The only answer I can ever give to this kind of question is … weeellllll, that all depends on what mood I’m in! … I’m sure you’ve all been there. Erm, I CAN answer one of them … just the one, though, and that would be the food question. Hands down, it’s pizza. If I didn’t have to watch my weight, I would be the pizza queen. Seriously, melt that cheese over juicy mushrooms and a barbeque sauce, and I’m your gal. I’d bathe in the stuff if I could!

The writer

You are a multigenre author, you have written books listed on the following genres: romantic, erotic, writing techniques, poetry, Zen, horror, fantasy fiction…that is impressive! any genre you will never write about? A Western maybe?

I’ve learned to never say never! My immediate response, which I wasn’t going to say out loud, was historical fiction. But then that does appear in Interludes in one of the longer short stories, so already I’ve contradicted myself. I prefer to say, wait and see! Who knows what will catch my imagination next?

I’d like to know about your first steps, the very first day you decided to become a professional writer, what made you do it? What made you step in such an uncertain world as is the writing one?

Since being old enough to hold a crayon, I wrote stories. However, lack of confidence and support led me down other, mundane, paths. Only when I had to begin life from scratch at forty did I actually sit and write a full novel with the aim of publishing it. After that, I actually learned the finer nuances of writing and publishing.

I was lucky, as my muse was in top form and full flight. Both The Battle for Brisingamen and The Glade flew from my brain/fingers smoothly and quickly. I think that might have been the first time in my life that I actually hit the ground running, despite being an amputee, lol.

Do you have any ritual for writing? any kind of habit or goals to achieve every day?

When I first started writing, I just sat and wrote … and wrote, and wrote, lol.

These days, I have a routine. I get through my emails and social media in a morning, with a much-needed cup of coffee, and then I open up my work in progress. I have a set deadline for it, as well as a planned word count, and from those, I work out my needed daily word count to help keep me on track. Of course, life happens, like me getting the flu last week, lol. That kind of messed up my schedule a bit, but I can always catch up later.

Is any of your books based on a true story?

No, they are all from inside my warped mind, lol. Finding Katie took a lot from teens I worked with while a nurse on a children’s psychiatric unit, but isn’t based on any one person or situation.

Do you take real people you know and put them in your books? Any specific you want to tell us about?

My book Backstage, an erotic romance published last year, while totally fictional with made up people, was inspired by the recent Hollywood scandals based around Harvey Weinstein. I don’t ever put a complete person I know in my books, but rather include an assortment of traits and make them into one character.

Which book are you writing right now?

A post-apocalyptic novel set in settled space. So, quite different to any of my previous ones. Its working title is Exxon 1, but I don’t yet know if I’ll keep that or change it. The story is all about a virus that gets released on the planet, and the despotic totalitarian leader willing to do anything to remain in power, and then there are those desperate to stop him.

If you had to define yourself just using one sentence of your books, which one would be?

“When we stop caring so much what people think, then we achieve a liberated and happy existence …”

[This comes from Jewel in the Mud, and best represents my approach to life and the hardest lesson I had to learn … Love myself no matter what. Until I grasped that, I could never write for other eyes to see.]

Which are your writing influences? Any authors you think were the most relevant?

Stephen King is right up there. Just like I’m a multi-genre writer, I’m also a multi-genre reader. From crime thrillers, to supernatural thrillers and horror, to romances, to YA, and fantasies, as well as sci-fi. I also love Tess Gerritsen and Jo Nesbo, also Anne McCaffrey and Guy Gavriel Kay.

I could go on for weeks about the many authors I know and love, lol.

Which would you say were your best and your worst moments as a writer?

They are one and the same: hitting that publish button … both the first ever time and every time after. It doesn’t matter how many books I write and publish, I always feel terrified when it’s time to go live.

The Books

Backstage book coverJewel in the mud

Not one, but two books published in 2018, Backstage and Jewel in the Mud, an erotic romance and Zen musing respectively. So different, tell us about them?

Zen musings was actually written over a whole year (2016) as a series of weekly blog posts, Monday Musings, and then eventually it became a book. The posts grew so popular that I wanted to make the lessons available to the wider public.

In complete contrast, I wrote Backstage in just 15 days, lol. It is centered loosely around the recent scandals to hit Hollywood, namely the Harvey Weinstein alleged buses, but—of course—is all total fiction and is based on made-up people. … And it’s a lot more fun!

Elemental EarthElemental Earth is a young adult novel, the first book of The Mysteries series. This is a story about Sarah a girl who doesn’t fit in, a feeling lot of teenagers would easily relate to, would you say this book can help teenagers, or maybe not only teenagers, to find themselves?

I would say it can help both teens and people of all ages find themselves and become their own unique person without the constant need to ‘fit in’.

Also, regarding Elemental Earth, people are waiting for the second book in this series, Air-Born, is there a release date you can give us?

Sadly, I can’t give you a date just yet, and I have to apologize for the long delay. I really do owe my lovely readers the next in the series.

Polish your prose book cover

Your book, Polish your prose, is a guide to teach essential techniques so you can edit your own book, what makes it different to other similar books? I see this book was written after all you learned.

This book doesn’t contain a lot of jargon or big words. Instead, it is written in a relaxed manner that any layman can understand. I know my eyes glaze over as soon as I hear the word ‘grammar’, lol.

 

The Battle For Brisingamen book cover

Your first book, The Battle For Brisingamen, has elves, dragons, dwarfs… fantasy genre at its finest, Will this book have a sequel?

No, I’m not planning a sequel to this one. But who knows … maybe one day…

 

 

Hope you enjoyed this interview, you can purchase all her books on Amazon. maybe Harmony Kent inspired you? just let us know in the comments!

Skyward wallpaper

Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Hello Wottareaders!  today I’m introducing Brandon Sanderson’s latest novel: Skyward. The American sci-fi and fantasy writer introduces us to a new world full of fantasy and spaceships. Let’s know more about Skyward by Brandon Sanderson.

Skyward is a young–adult science fiction novel, spiced up with fantasy. This is the first novel of a series, which was released in October 2018, this will be followed by Starsight, which is expected to be published in November 2019. After this, two more books will come, making this saga a tetralogy, there are no release dates for these novels yet. Wanna hear a funny thing? Sanderson wrote this tale in only three months, which is really impressive!

 

Skyward book cover

Skyward book cover

What is Skyward about?

This story is set in a distant future, humans no longer live on Earth but in the world called Detritus where they try to survive. What is left of the human race is stuck on a lost planet, being continually attacked by aliens known as Krellers. The main character is a  young girl, Spensa, who lost his father fighting against the enemy.  The girl dreams to be a pilot like his father, she wants to fight and prove she is worthy to fight like any other. In order to fulfill her dream, she will have to join the flying academy, her first challenge in order to claim the stars.

Is this series connected with Cosmere?

Most of the popular stories written by Brandon Sanderson are set in the Cosmere universe, this is the case for Mistborn (a must read trilogy about which you can get more info here), Elantris or The Wax and Wayne Series.  The author had the magnificent idea of setting most of his stories in the same universe, Cosmere, therefore making all those tales have the same fundamentals of magic and cosmology even though if the stories are separate. Skyward nonetheless is a non cosmere story,  set in a different universe, the same as the short story that preceded this book: Defending Elysium.

Funnily, this novel was originally announced as a Cosmere story, but at some point, Brandon Sanderson changed his mind. As Branderson himself stated on an interview this was due to two main reasons.  First, while in the Skyward universe it is possible to time travel this is not possible in his created universe. And second, this novel is related to the history of the Earth, while Cosmere is a totally distinct and separated universe.

Defending Elysium is a short story Brandon Sanderson wrote in 2008 which can be read on his website for free. But careful, you shouldn’t read 

What will you like about Skyward?

This is a story surrounded by a lot of action, fun and spaceship battles. Sanderson got inspired by all those stories about a boy and his dragon companion, he always wanted to write something like that, about that kind of particular relationship:

 “I love this archetype of story, and I’ve always wanted to do one, but I held off until I could find a new direction in which to approach it. Eventually, it drifted away from “a boy and his dragon” towards “a girl and her spaceship.”

As it happens with the Cosmere universe, Skyward’s worldbuilding is rich and compelling making you want to know more. His usual rules for magic and cosmology are somehow present, but instead of wizardry, you will face a world full of high technology.

This novel is easy to read, full of characters you will love and plot twists that will leave you with your mouth open. Be careful, maybe you will cry a little too.

Girls rarely have a protagonist role in this kind of books. But in Skyward we have girls and boys flying spaceships since they are very young. It is an encouraging story, that will surely motivate women in order to pursue their dreams. If you are looking for other inspiring women in sci-fi and medieval literature you will love this article.

How has this book been received by fans?

Skyward has been generally appraised by both critics and fans.  This novel is rated as five stars (89% of its rating) on Amazon.  Most of the readers agree this story is compelling, well written and thrilling. People mostly stated they couldn’t stop reading, they were turning pages like crazy since the story was fascinating.

Hope this article made you curious about this novel, keep reading!

How to read Dune series by Frank Herbert

All who have read Dune will agree that the first volume is one of the best science fiction novels of all time. If you decided to start reading the Dune series I can only congratulate you. Because you will not regret. In this post, you will be able to check the proper reading order Frank Herbert’s appraised work.

For those wondering what Dune is, do not worry, help is on the way. My article “Introducing Dune series” will tell you everything you need to know before the upcoming movie gets released. What? You didn’t know Dune is having a movie adaptation? check this post then for more info!

What is the proper reading order for Dune?

As it happens with other long series, there is a bit of controversy regarding the proper order to read this series. Some say it is best to read them in chronological order, meanwhile others think it is better to read them in published order… if you ask me, in this case, I think you should start reading this saga by the one book that made Dune series to be known as one of the best science fiction novels ever, that is,  starting by the first book published: Dune.

Dune book cover

 

So, in my opinion, you should read first the original series. This is the story of Paul Atreides and the planet Arrakis, where the priceless spice named mélange, sometimes just called “the spice,” is grown. Even though it is usually said that Dune is a series of six novels, for me at least, it is more like a three-book original saga and a three-book sequel. I say this because centuries pass between the third book, Children of Dune, and the fourth, God Emperor of Dune, so I think think they should not be considered at the same level.

Here you have the Dune original saga books in order:

  • Dune. 412 pages.
  • Dune Messiah. 256 pages.
  • Children of Dune. 416 pages.

This would be like the basic pack, the must-read I would say. If you read these three books you will know how the story of Paul Atreides concludes. Of course, Dune keeps being alive after him.

The extended reading

If you are willing for more Dune, and trust me you will, you have way more to read. Following to Children of Dune you have what I call the three-book sequel.

  • God Emperor of Dune.
  • Heretics of Dune.
  • Chapterhouse: Dune.

Unfortunately, the latest book, Chapter House: Dune, ends with a cliffhanger and since the author died the next year after this book was published,1985, he left a lot of the plotlines unsettled.

However, this matter was somehow resolved by the two next novels written by Brian Herbert, Frank Herbert’s older son, and Kevin J. Anderson (spin-off novel writer for Star Wars or Starcraft among others and also known for his work The Saga of Seven Suns).  Please notice that, from now on, all the novels mentioned are not written by Frank Herbert but by his son and Kevin J. Anderson.

  • Hunters of Dune.
  • Sandworms of Dune.

Still want more? At this point, the reading order gets more and more complicated, two prequel series, and sequel of one of those prequels…none of these will be Frank Herbert’s work as previously explained,

First prequel

The first prequel is set just before the first published book, that is, before the Arrakis conflict. These books are narrated from the point of view of three noble houses, which give the name to each manuscript:

  • House Atreides.
  • House Harkonnen.
  • House Corrino.

Second prequel (Legends of Dune) and its sequel (Great Schools of Dune)

While the first prequel happens just before the first Dune novel, this prequel narrates a story occurring thousands of years before.

  • The Butlerian Jihad.
  • The Machine Crusade.
  • The Battle of Corrin.

This second prequel trilogy has a sequel trilogy also:

  • Sisterhood of Dune.
  • Mentats of Dune.
  • Navigators of Dune.

That would be all, there are also short stories but we will leave it there from now. If you are willing for more Dune just leave a comment and I will provide you more info about the short stories!

Dune reading order summary

So, here is a summary for my suggested Dune read order. First of all, I recommend you read the original work by Frank Herbert, at least the first three books. After you have finished with all his original work you can read the sequels and lately Legends of Dune and its sequel. As a result, If you read all of these books you will become a Dune god and people will kneel to your divine presence.
