Dragons of Winter Knight

by Tracy Hickman and Margaret Weis

Reviewed by Ruby

The companions head down to Tarsis to find some help against the dragon armies, but instead they get a nasty surprise. The city is attacked by dragons and the group is split into two, both on a quest to find a mythic Dragon Orb, the only thing ever created able to control a dragon. One is in the Elven Nation of Silvanesti, now twisted by a nightmarish magic; the other is in the far south stashed away in the Icewall. Both groups of heroes will face many perils before they can ever hope to meet up again, if they ever will.

I enjoyed this book much more than the first one. It might have something to do with the fact that it is the second in the series and there was more action and less of the ‘build up’ that was in the first book. It also felt more global. The war started spreading out and affecting other cities and kingdoms. We met a lot more races and peoples and saw how they reacted to the dragons. Also with the group slitting up there was more storylines and more things happening.
