Darkness and Light

Sturm Brightblade and Kitiara Uth Matar. Darkness and Light is the story of Sturm's search for his father and Kitiara's years of wanderlust. Five years before war engulfs Krynn, Sturm and Kitiara hitch a ride on a flying ship piloted by a band of professorial gnomes and find themselves crash-landed on, of all places, Lunitari.

The red moon of neutrality is a desolate place of wonder and danger - of tree-people ruled by a mad monarch; giant ants formed of living crystal; and a mysterious brass dragon dwelling in an obelisk. Together, the honor-bound Solamnic Knight and the remarkable warrior-woman must overcome magic and power…and love.

Darkness and Light is one of the long-awaited stories set before the best-selling DRAGONLANCE® Chronicles. Paul B. Thompson and Tonya R. Carter are the authors of Red Sands, and contributed to the popular DRAGONLANCE Tales short-story anthologies.

Tasslehoff Burfoot is snared by a lady bounty hunter, whose assignment it is to endure the return of the light-fingered escape artist to his homeland. Beloved Uncle Trapspringer is being held prisoner by the venerable council of elders until Tas honors Kender marriage tradition.

But Tasslehoff's betrothed pulls a disappearing act of her own. The race is on to see who gets dragged to the altar first. Not only must Tas dodge matrimony, but he must elude a capricious wizard set on pickling one of every creature on Krynn, cheer up the last existing woolly mammoth, foil a most determined and deadly assassin, and - in the end - save Kendermore.

For the first time, author Mary Kirchoff recounts the adventures of the popular Tasslehoff Burrfoot five years before the Chronicles begin, the first trilogy in the DRAGONLANCE® Saga, the best-selling series of fantasy novels which has sold more than five million copies worldwide.

What happened to them? And why had their disappearance sent the city of Mereklar into a panic?

A beautiful noblewoman persuades Raistlin, Caramon, and their kender companion, Earwig Lockpicker, to search for the cats. But what starts out as an intriguing mystery turns sinister when the town's leading citizens are murdered… by what appears to be a gigantic feline!

A ball of string, and ancient legend, and three magically glowing lines lead the twins to the truth - and a confrontation with a deadly foe. On the fabled Night of theEye, Raistlin will supposedly acquire great magical power.

He'll need it.

Author Kevin Stein describes the adventures of the popular twins five years before the Chronicles begin, the first trilogy in the DRAGONLANCE® saga, the best-selling fantasy novels which have sold five million copies worldwide.
