This was my absolute favorite Dragonlance book- here is where we learn the past of one of Dragonlance's most intriguing (not to mention popular) characters. I actually wrote a paper on this one (not easy to do with a fantasy book). Anyway, this is written by Dragonlance's best author in a very in-depth way that really explains Raistlin's character. If you read Dragonlance, read this one. ( )

There the gifted and talented but tormented boy comes to see magic as his salvation. Mages in the magical Tower of High Sorcery watch him in secret, for they see shadows darkening over Raistlin even as the same shadows lengthen over all Ansalon.
