Dragonlance: Dragons of Deceit: (Dungeons & Dragons) (Dragonlance Destinies, 1)
About this deal
She went in search of her mother and found Atieno at the window in her bedchamber, gazing out at the bright blue sky above and burnished orange leaves below. Though most of the side characters were duds, I did like Dalamar the elven wizard, and Wolfstone the dwarf. I don’t think they were particularly well written, but they were more palatable than the rest. It was really a shame that Wolfstone wasn’t more prominent.

There are two distinct stories being told here. The first half of the book takes its time to establish an all-new character, Destina, and show everyday (ish) life in Solamnia. The Heroes of the Lance are just names the average person doesn't know, and their acts are second or thirdhand news. It's a slow start, even by the standards of other DL books, but I liked the attempt to show the wider world outside of the Companions.La protagonista è molto testarda, continua ad alimentare le sue convinzioni nonostante tutti intorno a lei urlino che ha torto.

The main thing I remember from both of these experiences, was how the writing grew from the slow 1st book into the later ones (& even more in the amazing third trilogy). DRAGONS OF DECEIT is a non-starter that eventually gets to the beginning of the story that all fans of the series are going to want to readI did,” said Wolfstone. “Solamnic, noble family, not married. She once had money, but lost it and is now living in reduced circumstances. She is far from home, and her reason for traveling all this distance must be important enough and troubling enough for you to invite her to the Life Tree.” I first read the Dragonlance novels (those that were out at the time - the first 2 trilogies) in the summer of '86. Years later, I did a full reread including the third & fourth trilogies. Si può considerare un personaggio quasi grigio perché ad un certo punto inizia a mettere a repentaglio tutti i rapporti che ha creato con chi le sta vicino.
