I have been working my way through many of the DragonLance books. The most recent is DragonLance Heroes Volume 2: Stormblade.
I enjoyed the book far more than I thought I would. It is an interesting story that gives some lore about Krynn that I didn’t know, and tells about the forging of a very special sword called Stormblade.
Stormblade is a King’s Sword. It is one of those artifacts that will be the stuff of legend, but this is its origin story.
The sword is forged, then disappears, falling into the hands of a barmaid and then there is a quest to get it back where it belongs. It is a fairly melancholy storyline but I really enjoyed reading it.
There is an irrepressible Kender that makes things funny on occasion and learning more about the Dwarves and their Kingdom makes this not only an entertaining book, but one that really helps you get much of the story of this fantasy world I didn’t know before.
Can the Stormblade be recovered from a land at war? It is a difficult task! One not for the weak of heart!
