Bones of the Dragon by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman (Book 2009)

This book is the first one I've read of these two authors that did not have something to do with Krynn and the Dragonlance world. It's a daring move to kinda jump genres, but I'm sure they had to pay the bills right?

Let's get straight to it. This book was not very good and lacked in the grand storytelling that the writers are capable of. The characters were O.K., but the main protagonist was such an immature fucktard that I found myself scoffing at everything that he did. I'm sure the writers did this on purpose so that it would be a precursor to some sort of long evolution of character development as the series continues. The plot was written in a way to essentially force drama to happen...it didn't seem natural at all so yeah the end of this book was totally like the end of LOTR or something in that there will be another book to continue on with the story.

I was disappointed. I was hoping for a new series to keep up on but this is definitely not it. I hope the best for the authors for they are capable of so much more...
