In Bones of the Dragon, Skylan Ivorson is a sea-raider of the Vindras, an undefeated champion of the Torgun clan, and eventually the Chief of Chiefs of all Vindras clans, an honor he truly feels he deserves as one who has been blessed by Skoval, the god of war. But sometimes a blessing is a curse in disguise. Skoval and the other ancient gods are under siege from a new generation of gods who are challenging them for the powers of creation.... and the only way to stop these brash interlopers lies within the mysterious and hidden Five Bones of the Vektan Dragons. It will be up to the Vindras, the dragon-goddess's champion, to undertake the quest to recover all Five. The fate of the Old Gods and the Vindras' people rests on their recovery, for this is not only a quest to save the world-it is also a quest for redemption. Filled with heroes and heroines young and old (as well as human and non) spanning locales of exotic adventure in a magic-forged world, the Dragonships of Vindras series fully illustrates the mastery of world-building and storytelling that has made Weis and Hickman into the bestselling fantasy co-authors of all time.

    " Having been a long time fan of Dragonlance novels by both Weis and Hickman, I will have to say I was rather disappointed by this book. There was so much potential at the beginning with the novel with the declaration of "Your gods are dead". The protagonist Skylan was at first portrayed as a self centered ass which I quite detested to be honest. However, with a character like him, it is foreseen that he can undergo lots of character development but as the book progressed I found that I disliked him more and more. Many things were also quite predictable which took away from the novel. One thing that I did enjoy was how Weis and Hickman used the concept of Vikings and incorporated magic, dragons and gods. The setting of the story is well constructed and I sincerely hope the next book will be less of a dissapointment. "

    " I'd give this a 3+, or a 4-. It was a very enjoyable high fantasy read with a Norse mythology feel to it. However it was not overly memorable and I will likely forget most of the story in a matter of months. Still, for those who enjoy fantasy I'd recommend it. I'll probably try to find book 2 one of these days. "

    " This book was given to me by my friend's dad since he purchased two of them by mistake. Overall, it was an alright book, but I just wasn't real thrilled with the main character, Skylan. There were so many other characters that would have been better to use than him. I will probably try and finish the series, but it's not like I'm dying to read the next book anytime soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Seth | 1/11/2014

    " An amazing story that draws you in from the beginning. The main character starts out as an arrogant jerk, but by the end you can see him being forged into a more wise leader. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Noelle Campbell | 12/14/2013

    " It's good writing, and I was enjoying Weis/Hickman but after the first book, I realized that I didn't like the protagonist and I didn't even like the secondary characters. Why would I read a book where I didn't like any of the characters? So I stopped reading about halfway through the 2nd book. "

    " I've added a comment to Rupert's review. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 11/25/2013

    " This was a well written begining to what might become as clever and amazing as there original Dragonlance series. The character are phenomenal and the story unique. Mergaret Weis does it again...and I just hope there are more in this eries to come. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Renee | 8/2/2013

    " Good book - lots of details - sometimes too much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennie | 4/18/2013

    " The storyline is an interesting one, and I enjoy the characters for the most part. The culture and personality of this group of people also seems realistic, however because of this I wouldn't aloow any teenagers to read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ralph McEwen | 2/24/2013

    " I won't be following this series. Bsfore I was half way through I wanted *ALL* the lying self center stupid people and gods to die. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gregory | 11/29/2012

    " I'd have to say it was a good idea, but I though the book was just too trashy. Not a huge fan. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mindy | 4/29/2012

    " I wanted to like this book. I love Weis/Hickman books. The use of slang and foul language ruined the ambiance of the story. You may call me a prude, yes, but I was not impressed. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Luke | 4/21/2012

    " I kept waiting to discover that some god had once again stolen the world. Gave up about 1/3 of the way into it. It felt like a bad mashup of Zelda and Dragonlance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mom | 1/31/2012

    " at the start of the book i didn't like the main character---kept reading hoping he would grow up---ended up liking the book worth reading for fantasy fans "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 3/16/2011

    " It was a good read but seemed to packed with plot and not enough character development. But interesting enough to read the next in the series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sonia | 2/16/2011

    " BAH! A wonderful story written SO poorly it made me bash myself over the head with the book. My cat could have done a better job writing this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 8/21/2010

    " Weis and Hickman have a flare for creating unique worlds. This series is no exception. The only flaw is that I find the villain to be too much of a caricature of a fanatic, bumbling around in self delusions. Otherwise this book was a big step forward from the previous one of the series. "

    " As always Weis & Hickman are good again! "
