I will say a few things about this book.
First, if you are going to pick apart a book for “not being cannon” or “OMG they rode it off the rails” this isn’t for you. It is a book based on Kender for goodness sake.
That out of the way, it is the most fun DragonLance book I have ever read. If you just enjoy the ride, you will love this thing.
First, as the book opens, Tasslehoff is being escorted back to his home because he violated the Kender code, I didn’t know the Kender really had a legal system so to speak, but they do.
Interestingly, it was because he ran out on a marriage vow, but he can’t really remember her name because they haven’t met?
Now, imagine a few things that you will come across in this book.
Imagine being the mayor of Kendermore and trying to get your citizens to pay attention during a meeting.
Try being a human seeking medical help in a Kender village.
Also, always remember, when following a Kender map, don’t believe everything you see.
Another word of advice, when taking a sailing ship, never ever leave Tasslehoff Burrfoot in charge of that process when he is assisted by Gully Dwarves. Imagine that same group trying to get a cart unstuck from the mud. Hilarity results.
Also, in this book, you will find a doctor that treats people with some “magic potion” that is closer to pure alcohol than anything magical.
I can’t say enough good things about the fun of this book. If you have not read it, and it wasn’t one of the more popular books in the DragonLance series you need to. It wasn’t high adventure, it isn’t “the legend of” it is just fun. Enjoy the hell out of it!!
