is absolutely wretched.Before I get into talking about the story itself, I just want to say that this book has one of thenonsensical covers I ve seen for a fantasy novel I get that slapping a dragon on a cover is a real marketing technique for this genre and I have read books based on how cool the dragon looked, like Dragonsbane and Dragon Wing but it s still really funny to have this large, looming dragon just kind ofstand there and wait while a tiny half dragon lady blasts a knight somewhat ineffectively with a beam of magic This combined with the title which feels a good dealgeneric than the previous two books almost makes this a parody of fantasy book art instead of an earnest attempt at describing the contents within Oh, where do I start with the actual contentsWhen reading a trilogy, especially a medieval fantasy trilogy in a genre where there are millions of books with knights and dragons and castles and sorcery, all competing to become the next big thing , I try to look at the books as a whole and think to myself what do these books offer that s different from the others What can I remember when I recall this story What kind of story is this trilogy trying to tell me In The Dragonvarld s case, what sets it apart from the other books on dragons the thing I can remember from this series years after reading it is the dragon on human breeding program in which one of the dragons involved in the secret evil plot proceeds to rape several scores of women over a span of several decades so that they give birth to hideous dragon human hybrids while he wears the body of a human that he ripped the heart out of in a terrible shapeshifting ritual.Yep This is The Dragonvarld Trilogy Dragon rape and dragon breeding programs and occasionally dragons wearing human skin suits because dragons hate humans just that much It sounds like I m griping on one plot point and how it ruins the books for me, but not only is the rest of the book so bland and by the numbers that this is really all you remember, but that s also really what drives all the conflict in these three books This is the big secret that the renegade dragons Grald and Maristara and a third dragon are keeping from the dragon council as their solution to the rising technology in human society This is how the dragons are amassing an army to take back their lands and become the true masters of the world onceThis is why there is an all female coven in the first book that s taught to attack dragons on sight to prevent members of the dragon council from finding out the secret and why there are mad monks All of the conflict, all of the horrible things in which the heroes must stop is centered on awkward bestiality Something tells me this series is not getting a movie adaptation anytime soon.I can t help but wonder what kind of reactions Grald and Maristara would ve got if they justwent up to the Dragon Council and tried to pitch this idea instead of tried being all sneaky with their awful strategy I m picturing some awkward silence and a bunch of dragons trying to avoid eye contact as they realize just how far they ve fallen as a species.Really, the whole driving force of the villains plot is jawdroppingly stupid to the point where I almost feel sorry for the villain dragons So because humans might, in the future, be able to stop dragons and dragons are too proud to establish any alliances with humans, they re going tobreedhumans, only magical humans who have evenof a means to stop them Only they re going to make these humans loyal to dragons somehow And, on top of that, dragons are going to make freakish dragon human hybrids by raping their daughters and disguising this as an honorable ceremony, because there is no way this can backfire horribly on them and make humans want to kill them .Isn t that like enforcing gun control by sending out loaded guns to random households and using a gun to shoot random civilians Plot wise, this book soundly wraps up the events in Mistress of Dragons and The Dragon s Son The author does do a good job at making sure every dangling plot thread is addressed while creating some twists and give us a satisfying dragon fight complete with fire breathing, blood raining from the sky which is probably one of the few visuals that I liked from this novel , and knights The villains meet their end, the humans rise triumphant, Marcus and Ven and newcomer Sorrow finally receive their happy endings, Evelina has several tons of karma dropped on her head after a book of suffering through her once comical but now pitiful antics, and the dragon council finally exposes the traitors among their ranks Yippee This sounds like it would be exciting, and the prose is written well enough, but I really didn t feel any strong emotions one way or another involving the events that took place Because, in the end, dragon rape or no dragon rape, I really didn t care whether the bad dragons succeeded or not even after spending three books with this cast of characters Even if you ignore the awkward plot points revolving around sex, this book is boring Even Evelina, who I said was the best part of the second book, turns into something completely obnoxious in this book and I ceased to care about her story arc around the time she started to fake a pregnancy in order to control MarcusYes, this is a plot point This book is terribleNone of the characters feel like actual people any and jump to conclusions in ways that feel alien, and none of the characters introduced in this novel are notable in any way beyond wow, that person is half dragon, that s kind of gross Marcus is the most likeable but he s also the human equivalent of off white paint There s a half dragon girl named Sorrow whoI guess mirrors Ven s character development but doesn t actually play a large part It s a hot mess, basically And from one of the writers of Dragonlance, no less Which turns this book from just a stupid book on really dumb dragons into an absolute insult. The same person who helped create Raistlin and Tanis and Caramon and Goldmoon created this. You helped write Time of the Twins, one of my favorite books of all time, Weis Also, after building up the untapped magic in the two sons, they never really use any of their powers and instead the evil dragons are dispatched of with the traditional cannons and mortar and dragon fights We have a troupe of half dragon children, but they exist mostly to make the reader feel uncomfortable and to have a just angry mob tear down the dragon rape factory headquarters Ven and Sorrow in particular feels like they could ve been cut completely from this book and nothing of value would ve been lost In short, not Margaret Weis s best works and I hated reading this I would go so far as to say this is one of her worst, even, unless there s a Dragonlance novel that totally eclipses this one in wretched awfulness If you like dragons, there are thousands of books way better than this Even if you like the idea of half dragon hybrids or humans with some dragon magic in their blood, Dragon Weather makes for a less revolting read

    Note to self story was good until the epilogue I wish I did not read the epilogue because instead of the backstabber getting a comeuppance, she was givenopportunity to ruinlives If I ever pick up another book from this author, I hope I ll remember how she treats her bad guys.

    Solid read Just not for me.

  4. Mandy Mandy says:

    I wish the writer would have taken a bittime for the end battle A build up of three books and then it was over in a flash I was really looking forward to the dragons fighting, too badSo overall 2,5 3 stars for the trilogy and kind of a meh feeling after reading.

    ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy Literature.2.5 starsMaster of Dragons, the final book in Margaret Weis s Dragonvarld trilogy was a tasty but sloppy finale like a cheesecake that didn t quite set.This last book wraps things up, as we knew it would, and everything is finally well in the world, as we knew it would be There are some fine moments Draconas showing tenderness to a female dragon, Ven finds a family, Marcus falls in love and even some hilarious ones Draconas darning socks, Evelina s ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy Literature.2.5 starsMaster of Dragons, the final book in Margaret Weis s Dragonvarld trilogy was a tasty but sloppy finale like a cheesecake that didn t quite set.This last book wraps things up, as we knew it would, and everything is finally well in the world, as we knew it would be There are some fine moments Draconas showing tenderness to a female dragon, Ven finds a family, Marcus falls in love and even some hilarious ones Draconas darning socks, Evelina s ironic fate Characterization, especially of the bad guys, continues to be a high point, and the writing is nothing brilliant, but certainly pleasant enough.But this otherwise entertaining novel suffers from internal inconsistencies On page 38, Draconas is said to wear the guise of a human male in his thirties, and 5 pages later he is described as a human male of undetermined years Draconas has cast the illusion that he is a little girl while staying in DragonKeep He is able to eavesdrop on adults because of his keen dragon hearing But, later, we are told that as a little girl his hearing was so reduced that it seemed his ears were stuffed with wax Much of what Anora Prime Minister of the dragon parliament says to the parliament is illogical and none of the dragons ever notice For example, she says she should have removed Draconas from his post as walker because he was starting to become emotionally involved with humans, but she didn t remove him because he was the best walker they d ever had because he was able to stay detached from humans Then she says that she became involved in Maristara and Grald s plot 200 years ago because humans had become such a threat she cites their canons , but a few lines later she says that because their plot went awry, the humans created canons a few years ago Sometimes she indicates that the canons are a threat which, though they are no threat, show that humans are, for the first time in their history, preparing to fight dragons.There also seem to be inconsistencies about dragon magic vs dragon blood, who can see through illusions and who can t, and to what extent thoughts can be shielded from others with dragon magic These sorts of rules seem to be conveniently flexible For example, one of the monks is able to see through illusions, yet he doesn t recognize Draconas Then there are the unbelievable elements For example, Anora s betrayal just doesn t ring true it sounds like a forced plot twist And, Anora says that to keep their plot secret from Draconas, they had to kill some good dragons which she seems to regret when, if they had just killed Draconas instead, everything would have been fine And it didn t make sense to keep the plot from the dragon parliament if the purpose of it was to protect the dragons from the might someday be threatening humans It would have made immenselysense, and been a lot less stressful, to just go to the parliament and say hey, these humans want to kill us let s kill them first That seems a lot easier and a lotlikely to be successful than to embark on a 200 year breeding program in order to try to figure out if they might someday rule the humans with half human, half dragon creatures and a pack of mad monks And let s not forget that the humans weren t even starting to threaten the dragons until AFTER the breeding program started And let s not forget that Anora even says herself that the humans are not actually threatening yet they just might be in the future The whole thing just seems sloppy Half baked.I listened to this on audiobook The reader, a woman, did a great job with the female voices At first I thought she was doing a great job with the male voices too, because her voice for Grald, the first male speaker, was excellent really slimy Unfortunately, she used the same slimy voice for every male character in the entire book.My overall opinion of this series Unless you ve just got a thing for dragons, I d recommend choosing something better ReadMargaret Weis book reviews at Fantasy Literature

    I was hoping that I would be able to give this book 4 stars instead of 5 so that it wouldn t look like I m mindlessly fangirling about the series However, any flaws in this iteration of the series and indeed, the series as a whole are largely outweighed by all the parts that shine flawlessly One thing I particularly enjoyed in this book is that Weis doesn t hold the hand of her reader at several points there are cases of mistaken identity, and while it is easy to glean from context clues wh I was hoping that I would be able to give this book 4 stars instead of 5 so that it wouldn t look like I m mindlessly fangirling about the series However, any flaws in this iteration of the series and indeed, the series as a whole are largely outweighed by all the parts that shine flawlessly One thing I particularly enjoyed in this book is that Weis doesn t hold the hand of her reader at several points there are cases of mistaken identity, and while it is easy to glean from context clues who is who, Weis doesn t come outright and state it in the text until chapters later I noticed in the series that farnamed female characters die than named male characters While I don t think she necessarily uses the women s deaths as the women in refrigerators trope, I could understand if someone else thought so Overall, Weis ties together the series in a believable and satisfying way The trilogy was a pleasure to read and I will definitely enjoyof Weis s work in the near future

    I was pleasantly surprised with this book I didn t go in expecting much so I guess I couldn t have been too disappointed I was glad that most characters were actually able to pull their heads out and start realizing what was going on view spoiler although a certain royal family were pulled into a clear trap and left me calling them all idiots hide spoiler I very much enjoyed the conclusion of Evelinas fate at first but really wish Weis would have doneview spoiler and left Evelina I was pleasantly surprised with this book I didn t go in expecting much so I guess I couldn t have been too disappointed I was glad that most characters were actually able to pull their heads out and start realizing what was going on view spoiler although a certain royal family were pulled into a clear trap and left me calling them all idiots hide spoiler I very much enjoyed the conclusion of Evelinas fate at first but really wish Weis would have doneview spoiler and left Evelina cowed for life with no contact with other people and not in any situation that would leave the possibility of a rise to powerI do have one complaint throughout the trilogy it left me with a sense of, when all is said and done the world is going to have to change which in many ways it was working toward by the end but the Dragons still chose to exile themselves from the humans which leaves them in the same position as before still apart from but able to meddle in humas lives hide spoiler

  8. Liszi Liszi says:

    I thought the plot of the entire trilogy was very interesting however, I do not think it should be a trilogy This would have been much better if it would have just been two books The third book was extremely slow It felt like she was dragging it out just to make it a third book Also, the ending of this book was terrible I didnt care what happened to the stupid girl I wasconcerned about the actual main characters.

  9. Bob Wind Bob Wind says:

    This was a really weak ending to the trilogy Spoiler What was with following the girl to the monastery at the end I would much rather have read about the wedding The ending was so abrupt that I finished the book and went to the library to get the next book in the series I love Margaret Weis, and the writing in this book was good, but it really left me wanting.

  10. Beverly K Beverly K says:

    While I greatly enjoyed this book, there were moments in here in which I had to cringe It seemed all too contrived particularly with the role Anora played and it also wrapped up far too quickly.I feel like this would have worked rather well as part of a larger book or, indeed, continued with another trilogy, because a few things were left undone Overall, though, I loved the series.
