Warning, some minor plot spoilers for the Sunwell Trilogy in this post. The Sunwell Trilogy had its up and down moments. Some of the fail moments include:- Kalec blabbing his story like an idiot to Anveena after just meeting her and "justifying" it by thinking "I don't know why, but I feel I can trust her." Very, VERY poor plot excuse for blabbing. - Anveena getting upset over the destruction of her home and presumably the death of her "parents" then discovering the egg with Raac in it and being ALL BETTER when he hatched 2 seconds later. But it did have some better moments. Mostly once you got past the first few crappy introductory chapters. I especially the parts featuring Trag and the Baron. As for the Legends series... I remember them previewing some of it when it first came out. They used the same insanely small text that's nearly impossible to read in places. But, regardless, the parts of it I can read seem interesting. I just won't be reading any more of it on their site since I'm not too fond of eye strain.

Thats because knaak is... i dont want to say awful, but...he seems to have a real talent for sweeping story arcs, but all the little pieces in between that make up for it are much less exciting. On the whole i quite enjoyed the sunwell trilogy, and day of the dragon and the well of eternity, as well as the couple of dragonlance books of his i'd read, but really... he's like the dan brown of fantasy writing (if thats not almost a tautology). You can read through his books in a day. Interesting ideas, but not the best delivery.Amateur literature critic hour over.:P
