Sinds Derec de krankzinnige en zelfdestructieve groei van de stad stilzette, woont hij alleen met de enige andere mens in Robot City, de intelligente Katherine. De bouw wordt nu voortgezet in een tempo waarbij de stad voldoende tijd heeft zich tijdens de groei aan te passen en de wetten van de robotica garanderen hun een veilig bestaan... tot Jeff Leong van zich doet spreken. Een rampzalige gebeurtenis was er de oorzaak van dat deze voormalige mens werd omgebouwd tot cyborg. Bij zijn ontwaken wil Jeff echter maar één ding: zijn mensenlichaam terug, tegen elke prijs, hoe hoog ook...
In dit slotdeel van de Robot Cityreeks moet Derec, de man zonder geheugen die op zijn speurtocht naar zijn verleden tal van hindernissen overwon, nog één keer de klim naar de top van zijn kunnen wagen. Immers, met Derec gaat het niet goed: hij heeft een ernstige ziekte onder de leden, daar ingebracht door de bijna-krank-zinnige dr. Avery. Bijgestaan door een cyborg, de robot Mandelbrot en de buitenaarder wolruf, begint Derec op de wereld die Robot City heet aan een wanhopige speurtocht naar zijn kwelgeest, en - tegelijk - naar de ultieme waarheid omtrent zijn schimmige verleden...
Welcome to the world of Krynn - a world on the brink of a dark age. While humanity slides toward fanaticism and war, a long-dormant evil begins to rise. Amid the chaos, lifelong friends who went their separate ways in years past are drawn together once again. When they accept a mysterious woman into their midst, it begins a quest that will either save Krynn - or doom it for all time.
They won their first real battle in the war for Krynn, but the war has only just begun for the Companions! Friendships born in conflict will be torn apart. Hope will rest on the shoulders of a disgraced Knight and his two inexperienced companions. Worlds long divided by hatred and prejudice will either band together in a last struggle against darkness - or perish for all time.
The final installment in Weis and Hickman's Chronicles series--Dragonlance's undisputed must-read trilogy--brings on the main event: the Companions vs. the dragons in a knock-down drag-out at the iron works of Pax Tharkas, as the fate of Krynn hangs in the balance. They've mastered the Orbs and picked up the Dragonlance (see Dragons of Winter Night), and things are looking pretty good with the return of the good metallic dragons. But the band soon learns they must do battle with their own inner conflicts if they ever hope to defeat the Dark Queen Takhisis. A bang-up conclusion to Dragonlance's best-loved trilogy. --Paul Hughes
The Dragons of Krynn. In this one-of-a-kind collection, you’ll find: An elite corps of bridge-building draconians. A Solamnic stalking a dangerous specter. A minotaur captured by a dark wizard and put to a cruel and unusual test. Kender who pilfer magic, gully dwarves who cook a delicious rat stew, and gnomes who invent whatchamacallits that wreak spectacular havoc.

Dragons at War. Dragons, the true children of Krynn, are power incarnate, and they know it. They come in all guises and forms. Their personalities are as varied as their colors. Their magical abilities are virtually unlimited. And nothing is so terrifying as dragons on the wing. In this collection, a follow-up to the popular The Dragons of Krynn anthology, TSR’s best-known authors serve up a fantastical array of dragon tales featuring the motley races of Krynn and the deadliest creatures of the DRAGONLANCE® saga.
The Chaos War Rages. For fans of Dragons of Summer Flame, this is a new short-story collection, featuring the brave heroes, dark villains, differing races, and all varieties of dragons of TSR’s most popular fantasy world—Krynn. Edited by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman, this volume highlights familiar and beloved characters (and creatures), filling in some intriguing gaps of lost DRAGONLANCE® history.
Without dragons, there is no Dragonlance. But not all the stories of dragons on Krynn are epic tales of love and war. There are smaller dragon stories, no less epic in subject, that make the fabric of Krynn. You might find dragons in caves, freeing trapped soldiers; in the ocean, terrorizing the other creatures that call the water home; in the forest, defending it from evil gods; in a village, apologizing for accidentally terrorizing the inhabitants. There are dragons everywhere you might think to look, and some you have to look very closely indeed to see. Their stories are told here.
