". . . the original authors Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman are back to do the series justice with two decades worth of fresh ideas." -- Cinescape
In the midst of the War of the Lance, the Dragon Highlord Kitiara dreams of a death knight living in a haunted castle -- the dreaded Lord Soth. Fearsome as he is, he is an ally Takhisis, the Dark Queen, is most eager to gain. Kit vows to spend the night in the most feared place on Krynn -- Dargaard Keep -- to gain Soth's aid. No one who ventures into his presence ever returns. But Kit must face either Soth or her death at the hands of her Queen.
Meanwhile, Kitiara has tricked the Knights of Solamnia into searching for the Dragon Orb secreted in Icewall Castle. Accompanied by Laurana, Sturm Brightblade, and Tasslehoff Burrfoot, they sail north to the fortress, never realizing they are playing into the Dark Queen's plans.
Revealing for the first time the missing stories from the Dragonlance Chronicles, Dragons of the Highlord Skies describes the adventures that took place between the first Dragonlance book, Dragons of Winter Night and its sequel, Dragons of Spring Dawning. It follows the tales presented in Dragons of the Dwarven Depths.
