    Actual rating is 4.5 stars. This is the second book of a trilogy and the first book must be read before this one. We pick up right where we left off in the first book. Chemosh is still going thru his plan turning people into an army. Rhys is still determined to stop his brother. And Mina is still a hot property for the other gods as she lets herself be used over and over again. This was definitely a step up from the first book in this series.

We pick up right where we left off in the first book. Chemosh is still going thru his plan turning people into an army. Rhys is still determined to stop his brother. And Mina is still a hot property for the other gods as she lets herself be used over and over again. This was definitely a step up from the first book in this series. I think this is because the characters are firmly established and we are into the meat of the story. We also got away from the YA aspect that was a big part of the first book. Even though nothing will compare to the characters from the original novels these characters more than hold their own and have become favorites of mine. From the monk that has lost his way with his god or to the gods themselves or the kender that isn't your usual kender. There is something for everyone. It is no secret that these books have religious undertones. I loved this aspect in this particular book. The idea of a monk of a god losing his faith but rediscovering it was terrific. And speaking of the gods I love their active role in this book. The one flaw in the original books is that the minor gods are mentioned but never partake in the action. They are so involved in this book and trilogy and easily a favorite part of mine. This is a reread for me and I do not remember enjoying this book as much as I did this time. Maybe it is because of where I am in my life right now compared to where I was back then. I am enjoying the new cast of characters, the gods active role, and even Mina herself isn't getting on my nerves. This book ended with a twist in her story and the final book will explore this twist. I look forward to it and completing this trilogy.

    After reading the first book Amber and Ashes, I couldn't wait for the second volume to come out. You don't have to have read any of the Dragonlance novels to read this new series. It's a quick easy read and follows the story of Mina and how she plays into the plans of the different gods in wanting to rule the world. There's a little bit of love and suspense, dealing of relationships between the immortal and mortal worlds. I can't wait to read the last book in this trilogy. I definitely recommend After reading the first book Amber and Ashes, I couldn't wait for the second volume to come out.

    The main problem with this series isn't so much that it's fluff, I've got nothing against that (despite obvious contrivances from the D&D rule book), it's more that there is too much focus on the gods. Specific powers and rules applied to them are constantly in the background of the story while the mortals are largely ignored, save Rhys and Nightshade. While the revealing of Mina's divinity isn't really surprising after about halfway through the book, the idea that she is of the Light is.

Frankly I was expecting her to be an evil goddess so that Paladine could be returned to divinity and restore the balance.

    The characters introduced in the first volume of the Dark Disciple trilogy return in Amber and Iron. Rhys and Nightshade continue to follow Lleu, to find a way to destroy Chemosh's curse. Mina continues to help the God of Death in his attempt to rule the dark pantheon, but the mysteries from her past starts to surface, shaking her to the core. As more gods get involved, the mysteries surrounding Mina nature and origin slowly unravel.

Despite that, it is not as epic, powerful, or captivating as the original dragonlance novels. There is really no comparison.

    Mina has taken herself to the next level of godly complications, which is never good because all it does is create trouble for the world. I don't want to spoil anything. It is a truly wonderful second to the first of this trilogy. I rather wish I had the third one on hand to finish it off, to find out what happens after the end of Amber & Iron. There is no dawdling in the plot, so don't worry about it dragging on, just worry about the Beloved of Chemosh along with the god himself. We'll discover Mina has taken herself to the next level of godly complications, which is never good because all it does is create trouble for the world. I don't want to spoil anything.

We'll discover a lot about Mina in this instalment, some of which even terrifies her. I highly recommend picking up the second if you loved the first.

    It would have been nice to reread my review for the first installment in the Dark Disciple series, but I think I said something about enjoying my return to Krynn as it has been a number of years since last I was there (or something like that). What I can say about the second installment is that it is tremendously better than the first one and I actually liked the first one. I found the story being told at a good pace. Ms. Weis did a fine job building up to the key discoveries in this novel.

    The Dark Disciple Series is Ms Weis again at her finest. The mystery behind Mina is compelling to the end. A rogue monk on Krynn is also new and refreshing amidst the many canon lorekeepers of Dragonlance. If one were finished with The Chronicles, The Legends and The War of Souls, this is the next series to read. Also, although not written by Weis, The Minotaurs Series is also key to understanding the changing land of Krynn in the 5th Age.

    Off like a shotgun...I'm eating it up, like the last one. In case you never knew, I can take 1-2 months to read a book, but I finished book 1 and started book 2 within a week. Practically unheard of. It's AWESOME, btw. i am LOVIN this dark disciple series i'm reading. it almost seems that she was so inspired that words are being left out. i've found types throughout. doesn't reduce my enjoyment, tho.

    I liked this entry better than I did its predecessor. The author didn't have to take the time to set up the story and thus was able to dive right in (and I mean dive right in. It would be a good idea to read this book immediately after reading the first one). As in the first entry, the pov is spread amonst the characters for a more equal and interesting read. Be forewarned, though, it ends on a cliff-hanger. I liked this entry better than I did its predecessor.

    This book was phenomenal! Where as the first book didn't delve too deeply into Mina herself, this book finally answered all my questions! About half way through the book I just knew what Mina was, so when they finally came out with it I went, I knew it!! Can't wait to read the next. I was happy to see that Majere made quite the appearance in this book too. This book was phenomenal!

    Boring, boring, boring. Especially when you consider how many books are on my to-read shelf. That shelf is not just a list of things I would like to read. Each entry is a physical book on a physical self or a title stored on my Kindle that I actually plan to read. (I should post a picture of that sometime. My to-read shelf is actually one shelf, LOL!) So I need to be ruthless.

    This book opens up a new world, displaying the extricates of other gods. It shows the politics of the gods and their human-like relations.

    amazing trilogy, truly gripping and its getting more complicated as it goes along, the beloved of chemosh are as horrible as mina is and they are becoming ever more numerous and now all the gods are becoming interested in mina to say the least!! what is the grip mina has on gods and humans alike?? hate the only way the beloved can be killed, its chilling but no spoilers!!

    This book opens up a new world, displaying the extricates of other gods. It shows the politics of the gods and their human-like relations. The terrible cost of a beloveds death only feeds the fear of humans and gods alike. It was an interesting read and I had a hard time put the book down.

    I had the notion that the second instalment in any series is always the worst of the bunch, and this is based on experience. But I actually enjoyed this more than the first book, and that's saying much as I really loved the first book. Didn't expect the twist at the end! Huge shock.

    The second part of Mina's story. I'm a huge Dragonlance fan but unfortunately I have to tell his is not the best book by far. The gods are present way too much and they are too petty. Although the cliffhanger at the end of the book is not bad. The second part of Mina's story. I'm a huge Dragonlance fan but unfortunately I have to tell his is not the best book by far.

    It's nice to have a new trilogy with a new generation of characters in a familiar setting. Also nice is how big the other gods figure into this trilogy.
