[bksvol-discuss] Re: [bksvol-discuss]Reading order

If anyone wants the dragonlance in reading order, just go to Wikipedia, and
type in list of dragonlance novels there you can see the main books in the
order you are supposed to read them. That's how I was able to figure it out.
I also had a friend who told me which books to read, and thanks to her, I'm
hooked. lol

Hello all,

If anyone is interested in reading these books, here is where you start

Dragonlance Chronicles:
Dragons Of Audomn twilight
Dragons of winter night
Dragons of spring dawning

Then you move to Legends of the twins
Time of the twins
Test of the twins
War of the twins (I think that's in order)
 Then you read second generation which is short stories on the children of
Caramon, Cyderia etc
Then you read Dragons of summer flame

Then there is the War of souls series
Dragons of a lost star
Dragons of a vanished moon
Dragons of a fallen sun

Then there is the dark disciple trilligy
Amber and blood
Amber and iron
And I can't think of the third one. Lol

Once you are done with these then you can go and read the other books. If
this is too confusing just let me know. There are also books about the Mejer
twings brothers in arms and soulfordge  

If anyone has any questions, don't hesitate to ask.  I work at Palanthis so
ask away lol
An
N
P.S By reading these books, you can have some awesome disussions. There is
so much going on in this world, that its hard to keep up. These books will
make you laugh, cry, and fall in love with these characters, that you will
love to hate, and for some, you will root for. 
Dragons of a vanished moon

Dragonlance readers, feel free to comment on my post below on the order
which you think the books should be read. Or give some reading advice to new
readers. I think that because there are so many books that takes place in
this world that it can be overwhelming to a newby.  I would like to hear
from others, as I am by no means an expert. *smile* 

Grace

Hi Shelly:

In my opinion, a new reader should start by reading the Chronicles which are
Dragons of Autumn Twilight, Dragons of Winter Night Dragons of Spring
Dawning (being rescanned)  

These 3 books will give the reader a good understanding about the world of
Krynn.  Many of the books are prequels to the chronicles.  For example The
meeting Sextet and preludes tells the story of the companions which is only
slightly eluded in the chronicles.  The preludes are not in the collection.
The cataclysm is mentioned in the chronicles and so there is a trilogy about
it. There are elves and Dwarves and so there are trilogies giving more
details about events mentioned in the chronicles.  

Since we want to add the whole collection any addition will be great.  But
if you want to scan and have a particular preference let me know.   

Here is the time line as I posted a few weeks ago.

Dragonlance is a medieval fantasy world with elves, dwarves, kender, dragons
and other mythical creatures.  The main story begins with Dragons of Autumn
Twilight where a group of friends meet up at their favorite inn after a
5-year hiatus.  Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman wrote the main story line.
There are many books written by other authors about historical events,
legends, historical figures, major and minor characters.  Even some villains
have stories. For example, the  Meeting Sextet describes how the group of
friends met, and the preludes describes the friends adventures in the
intervening 5 years.  In my opinion, even though many of the side novels
take place chronologically before the Chronicles, they do not have to be
read first.
 
Below you will find a list of books that should actually be read in order.
However, if you aren't interested in side lines, you can skip the chaos
series.  You may want to read   some of the bridges of time series because
it fills in the gap between summer flame and dragons of a new age.  But if
you want you can just stick with the main event.     
 
If you have questions, please feel free to contact me. 
 
Dragons of Autum Twilight (DragonLance Chronicles #1)  Margaret Weis, Tracy
Hickman
http://www.bookshare.org/browse/book/21670?
Life-long friends, they went their separate ways. Now they are together
again, though each holds secrets from the others in his heart. They speak of
a world shadowed with rumors of war. They speak of tales of strange
monsters, creatures of myth, creatures of legend. They do not speak of their
secrets. Not then. Not until a chance encounter with a beautiful, sorrowful
woman, who bears a magical crystal staff, draws the companions deeper into
the shadows, forever changing their lives and shaping the fate of the world.
No one expected them to be heroes. Least of all, themselves.

The Crossroads series and Linsha trilogy would go before war of souls. 
Hope this helps.
