Check out my Dragonlance book summary and review  that I created to help you understand the basics of this great book. Dragonlance is a series of epic fantasy novels, divided into several trilogies written primarily by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman (authors of many other fantasy worlds, such as those chronicled in Joram's Sword, Death's Gate Cycle, The Rose of the Prophet, and The Sovereign .jewel.among others. others, and various stand-alone books telling related stories. The fictional universe of this literary series is richly described and detailed in the campaign setting of the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game of the same title.

The Dragonlance series was originally created by Laura and Tracy Hickman while driving to TSR for a job interview. There, Tracy met her future writing partner, Margaret Weis, and a group of associates for a Dungeons & Dragons game. The adventures developed during that game led to the creation of the first game module for Dragonlance and the novel The Return of Dragons, the first in the Dragonlance Chronicles trilogy.

The action of the Dragonlance novels takes place on the world of Krynn, most taking place in various locations on the continent of Ansalon (although some take place on the lesser-known continent of Taladas, north of Ansalon). The main story tells the adventures of a group of friends in their search for signs of the true gods, who disappeared after the Cataclysm. After the first general and highly successful trilogies, came more specific ones about certain characters, and from other areas of that world.
