A courageous heroine trapped in the distant past is determined to return to her own time—without changing the shape of the world forever—as the New York Times bestselling Dragonlance series continues in this thrilling sequel to Dragons of Deceit.
A clash of powerful magical forces sets off the Graygem of Gargath, sending Destina Rosethorn and her companions deeper into the past than she intended—to the age of Huma Dragonsbane and the Third Dragon War. Now, with the Device of Time Journeying shattered, they must find another way back to their own era before the Graygem irrevocably alters history and the Third Dragon War ends in defeat for the forces of good.
While the battle rages on, Destina tries desperately to make amends and prevent disaster. Raistlin and Sturm encounter their heroes Huma and Magius, and must reconcile the myths with the men. And Tasslehoff, shocked that the Knights of Solamnia have never heard of dragonlances, sets out to find the famed weapons.
But as the forces of the Dark Queen close in on the High Clerist’s Tower, Destina’s party must return to their own timeline together—or not at all.

Praise for Dragons of Deceit
“I love Dragonlance and I love Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman: plain and simple. Their books are my favorite fantasy series of all time. I love the stories and ideas but most of all, I love the characters. Why do we all feel like we know them? They are what spurred me to start working for D&D and inevitably what inspired me to pursue a career in showrunning.”—Joe Manganiello
“A love letter to fans.”—Nerdist
“It is truly a very nice return to a well-loved world, and it is handled with care and great passion by the two authors who introduced us to Krynn all those years ago. Dragons of Deceit is fun, adventurous and heartwarming in all the right spots. Those new to this land, welcome. Sit back, open up and enjoy the journey.”—Bookreporter
“If you love all things Dragonlance, please read this book.”—Geeks of Doom
“Reading Dragons of Deceit was like catching up with friends I haven’t seen in a while. They’ve had new adventures, met new people. The world has kept going, but it happily welcomed me back. . . . The story was fast-paced and exciting, the sort of adventure I love reading about. It ended with a bang and left me wishing I had a Device of Time Journeying of my own, so that I could travel forward and read book two. Unsurprisingly, Dragons of Deceit was incredible.”—Grimdark Magazine
