The 3rd book in the Tales series and so far, imho, the best. Or least bad, however you see it. The focus lies on love and war, be that war as we know it or struggling with feelings or being trapped in a dangerous situation. Love prevails, be that love from a lover, friends, and so on. Several decent stories, though overall nothing extraordinary. There's stuff about dragons, stags, and even the Companions are featured (Goldmoon, Riverwind, Tasslehoff, Laurana, Raistlin, Caramon, ...). Yes, Raistlin apparently made love to someone and became a father. Not such a "wow" story, though. And there's even a telling about Huma against the Dark Queen. Makes me want to read the novel about Huma for a better impression, because the Tales one is rather poor. Michael Williams's effort.. I just couldn't finish it. Was it about Sturm getting killed by Kitiara on the tower? He wrote in such a way that it spoils all the fun. Just tell it like it is and don't use 2500 words to say it was war and war isn't fun. So, again, fairly decent offering, but like the others nothing outstanding. ( )

Four stars for the general content of the book. Zero stars for the "Raistlin's Daughter" Novella-o'-Mary-Sue.

A book of short stories about...you guessed it....love and war, and occasionally both at the same time. Most of the stories were entertaining and a few were quite nice to read.

I would not recommend this book/series as a place to start if you have not read any other DragonLance books, as you may not recognize the people or events. This would greatly take away from the stories. However, if you have read a few and you would like a quick peak into the characters' lives before and after their novel worthy deeds, I'm sure you would enjoy this.

This volume is an anthology of short stories as could be discerned by the name of the series: Tales. In the name of completeness, I'll give micro-reviews of the individual short stories here.

1. Daddy Dearest
After the Cataclysm, a librarian wanders about trying to record the tales and oral histories of Krynn before they are lost forever. He finds an old knight who tells him a tale of the evil a father does to his daughter.

2. Pictures Of You
A tragedy claims the loving husband of a young wife. She spends the rest of her life striving to be worthy of his love.

3. Hunting Destiny
A detailed history of the Darken Wood, the passing of the Heroes of the Lance and the redemption of guardians of the wood. I really liked this little piece.

4. Amber Alert, Krynn Style
A young messenger gets kidnapped. Tas gets kidnapped along with him. It's then up to Raistlin, Caramon, Tanis, Sturm and Flint to discover that Tas has been abducted, track them down and rescue them from a couple of bloodthirsty bandits.

5. Death Knight
A lone Solamnic knight is charged with the defense of the High Clerists tower. So he does the only thing he can do - decimate the Dragon Highlord's entire army. I really enjoyed this one as well - the ultimate sacrifice for one's duty.

6. Young Sturm
We have here the story of young Sturm's flight from Brightblade castle with his mother, her maid and a sergent at arms. They get captured by pirates and delivered into the hands of an evil mage who has a thirst for young, noble blood.

7. Winning Goldmoon
This is the story of Riverwind and Goldmoon's meeting and of Goldmoon's discovery of the True gods of Krynn. I thought this one was also quite good - aside from the rather one-dimensional feel of Loremaster and Hunting-sky.

8. Raistlin's Daughter
Just after surviving the Test, Raistlin and Caramon take shelter from a blizzard in an Inn. Joining them is a mysterious young woman who entrances young Raistlin. There is a way to remove the enchantment, but the price could be death... Quite enjoyable and a bit of a surprise ending, as well.

9. Silver and Steel
The tale of Huma's final victory over the Dark Queen. A tale, also, of the love shared between Huma and his silver-haired companion. A tale, also, of the sacrifice that those two made in order that the world should continue to live.

10. Blind Man's Letter
A veteran of the battle at the High Clerists Tower writes home to tell his younger brother of the true nature of battle and of war.

I thought there were several very strong stories here. There definitely wasn't the same set of Poe-esque shockers as in the first volume. There was more filling in of the details of some of the back history of characters, which I found quite interesting. All in all, well done in my view.

Fitting it is that the many years of creative work on the DRAGONLANCE® saga should come to a provisory culmination with this collection of short stories, the most pleasing and powerful yet.
Foreword
In those chaotic years just after the Cataclysm, when the frightened citizens of Xak Tsaroth were fleeing their beloved but decimated city, there was among them a certain half-elf by the name of Aril Witherwind, who, while others sought only refuge, took to roaming the countryside, carrying upon his bent back a huge, black tome.
A Good Knights Tale
"It looks so real," said Curly Kyra with awe.
A Painter's Vision
By daylight, the stag, with an effort of will, appeared to the knight.
Hunting Destiny
For a long time Keli did not know where he was.
