Dragonlance Dragonlance: Dragons of Fate -Release Date & Description

I haven't seen anyone post this, but the second book in the current Dragonlance Destinies series by Weis & Hickman is popping up at book retailer sites. The release date is August 1, 2023 and the description reads:

"A courageous heroine trapped in the distant past is determined to return to her own time—without changing the shape of the world forever—as the New York Times bestselling Dragonlance series continues in the thrilling sequel to Dragons of Deceit.

A clash of powerful magical forces sets off the Graygem of Gargath, sending Destina and her companions deeper into the past than she intended—to the age of Huma Dragonsbane and the Third Dragon War. Now, after the Device of Time Journeying shatters, they must find another way back to their own era, before the Graygem alters history irrevocably and the Third Dragon War ends in defeat for the forces of good.

With the battle raging on, Destina tries desperately to make amends and prevent disaster. Raistlin and Sturm encounter their heroes, Huma and Magius, and must reconcile the myths with the men. Meanwhile, Tasslehoff—shocked that the Knights of Solamnia have never heard of dragonlances—sets out to find the famed weapons.

But as the forces of the Dark Queen close in on the High Clerist’s Tower, Destina’s party must return to their own timeline together—or not at all."

That link didn't work for me - it said it was blocked.

I haven't read the first book, is it any good?

Sorry about that, does this link work?

I enjoyed the first one but think the rest of the trilogy will make or break it, really just felt like a set up to the bigger story to be told. Lot of character development and establishing/refreshing places and things in the world that I assume will have a much bigger purpose later.

If you like Dragonlance I'd say check it out, but if you want to get into the settings the original Chronicles is definitely a better bet.

I loved Chronicles back in the day. Didn't care for Legends, but enjoyed a few others (fond memories of Kas the Minotaur). I haven't read them since they came out, so not sure how well they hold up. I might pick these up when all three are out.

Thank you for the reply!

@EldritchHistory I would put the novel blurb in a spoiler tag, to avoid spoiling the first book.

Too late. I haven't read it yet and was...surprised to find out some things. I was going to wait until the trilogy was done, then read it. If anything it's raised questions about the dead and such, but I have patience.

It would have come out anyways eventually, somewhere, somehow, especially if that's in the descriptor of the book itself.
