From Margaret Weis’ website…
Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman return to the unforgettable world of the New York Times bestselling Dragonlance series as a new heroine—desperate to restore her beloved father to life—sets off on a quest to change time.
Destina Rosethorn—as her name implies—believes herself to be a favored child of destiny. But when her father dies in the War of the Lance, she watches her carefully constructed world come crashing down. Not only does she lose her beloved father but the legacy he has left her: the family lands and castle. To save her father, she hatches a bold plan—to go back in time and prevent his death.
First, she has to secure the Device of Time Journeying, last known to be in the possession of the spirited kender Tasslehoff Burrfoot. But to change time, she needs another magical artifact—the most powerful and dangerous artifact ever created. Destina’s quest takes her from the dwarven kingdom of Thorbardin to the town of Solace and beyond, setting in motion a chain of disastrous events that threaten to divert the course of the River of Time, alter the past, and forever change the future.
Per Margaret Weis, Dragonlance’s poet laureate Michael Williams has added poetry to Dragons of Deceit.
Also, Margaret and Tracy had this special thank you to an old friend of ours.
Tracy and I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Astinus, Shivam Bhatt. We brought Shivam into this project at the beginning to help us with all things Dragonlance. He has answered many questions, provided invaluable assistance and kept many, many secrets!Margaret Weis
Plus, Wizards of the Coast has allowed the use of the classic Dragonlance logo with the word “classic” added at the top!
All For Now!
Folks, we here at the Nexus are so excited to be seeing this preview of Dragons of Deceit. We wish Margaret, Tracy, and all those involved the best of luck with this new series, which we hope will be a great launching point for Dragonlance for years to come.
Long Live the Lance!
