The first few pages of August's upcoming Dragonlance novel Dragons of Deceit from creators Margaret Weiss and Tracy Hickman are available to read over at Polygon. It opens up with Destina Rosethorn, a Solamnic noble, just before the War of the Lance, the central conflict which was portrayed in the original Dragonlance Chronicles back in the 1980s. The novel trilogy features time travel.

Alternatively you can listen to the excerpt below!



The cover, with art by Philipp Urlich, was revealed some months ago; it features Destina, flanked by Tasslehoff Burrfoot and a dwarf called Wolfstone, who comes from Thorbardin. Behind them is Saber, a copper dragon.

The novel trilogy is not connected to the Dragonlance D&D hardcover coming from WotC later this year

Seems promising enough, though I'm a bit leery of the whole time travel angle. I guess we will see soon.
I have begrudgingly accepted that they are likely to retcon and throw out all of the Age of Mortals through time travel bull$&>/ despite it being objectively better and unique from other d&d settings for actual campaigns. What annoys me most is that they are doing it through bringing Takhisis back to life, whether it's because they are so determined to make every one of their settings the damn same, or because they are too lazy to come up with new villains or actually develop the other gods (like Sirrion or Morgion) behind a single paragraph or two I'm not sure. Perhaps a bit of both. Either way I'll read the book, laugh at the main character's absurd name, and then promptly ignore any blatant setting retcons I don't like for my games.

No rule is inviolate
My name is Novel Readbooks. I am a scholar with a totally cool name that is totally coincidental with how my life has turned out. My companions are the minotaur kender Lak o' Newideas, and the silver dragon Nostalgia. I don't know she's a silver dragon and only know her by her elven form: Weve Dunthatbefore. We are going to travel back in time and allow our series to take a fresh approach, but it's not like what Star Trek did with its movies.
