    Classic Dragonlance goodness. Is there really anything better than Sea Elves and Were(kinda)- Dolphins? nope.

    This was one of the first introductions I had to Dungeons and Dragons, and Dragonlance, thanks to my school library. It's still a fun tale of sea elves and giant crustaceans and krakens and shapeshifting into dolphins now. Worth a read if you're into any of the above and don't want to think too hard about what you're reading.

    It takes place of the coast of the mainland. Princess Vixa is waiting on board a ship to pick up refugees from a war. While waiting they get caught in a weird fog and end up in the middle of the ocean with no idea how they got there. They run aground on an island and Vixa and some of the crew go explore the island to see if there is anyone living there. They run into two people on the island who run away from them into what looks like a cave. Vixa and her team go into the cave and find out that It takes place of the coast of the mainland.

They run into two people on the island who run away from them into what looks like a cave. Vixa and her team go into the cave and find out that the cave is not what they thought it was. It turns out they are inside a Kraken and that it is taking them deep into the ocean. They arrive to an underwater kingdom of a race that Vixa thought had long since died off. While there she meets a few prisoners that had been taken by the Kraken and now serve the queen as builders. Vixa soon learns that the queen is planning to attack the kingdoms on the surface to become the ruler of all of the elf races. Vixa befriends some elves that can change into dolphins to help her and some of the prisoners escape. While escaping she in turn is turned into a dolphin to help the prisoners escape. At the surface she is able to warn the surface kingdoms of what is going to happen and they prepare for war. The war comes and Vixa and the surface kingdoms win. But Vixa feels this pull month later to be in the sea and with one of the sea elves that helped her. So she ends up returning to him. I really liked this book. I liked that it had action going through out the book and that it was nonstop suspense. I could not put this book down until I was done with it. If there are anyone that likes fantasy books this is a must read.

    This book is part of the Dragonlance world. While other books of this series have told the passage of time for a certain race this one is about one event.

They have designs to change their current status. I liked the premise of this book that the author decided not to portray these elves as playful water nymphs but as a race on Krynn that desires more. The author does a terrific job with the underwater world as the reader develops a good sense of this world. The first third was terrific as these elves wage a battle with their underwater enemy before they can put their plans into motion. Then it starts to fall apart. There were minor plot holes that started to affect my enjoyment and I started to question some characters actions. The book did make a nice little rebound and I did start to enjoy it again but the ending was so wrong. Once again I questioned the motives of a character and it ruined this whole book for me. I think it was a case of an author getting too cute. This book could have been so much better as my enjoyment level was like a roller coaster ride. The other books in this series provide much more information and enjoyment.

    wow, had never heard of the sea elves better known as the dargonesti, so it was a great pleasure reading about them and their kingdom beneath the sea, loved the qualenisti elf, grand daughter to kith kanan who was a great warrior princess and who in the end saved the day for her cousins the silvanesti elves!! the dolphins in the book are awesome shapeshifters and the ending of the book is worth the read in itself!!

    This book was great! Honestly one of my favorites from the Lost histories series. Coming into this book I wasn't really to interested in the sea domain of Krynn. The Dargonesti blew my mind. Not only with such a rich aquatic world, but a great storyline as well. It had its history of the sea elves, but from an outsiders view. I think it worked great for this book. Once again Paul B. Thomson and Tonya C. Cook deliver.

    This book started off quite strong getting into the action right away. Fantasy and role-playing elements were quite strong as depicted in the battle of the warring factions along with the further battles against the other Eleven nations. However, the ending was a bit of a disappointment via a flat conclusion and a setup for a sequel (maybe?). Overall, I was aiming for a 3.5 (rounding up) but the end of the story brings it down to a solid 3.

    Another great story in the Dragonlance saga - the underwater world is described brilliantly. I found myself hooked by the story almost straight away, although I wasn't as keen on the ending. Maybe the tale is picked up elswhere in the many books! Thanks again for sending this - it will move on once I've read the complete set.

    Elves do not just live in the trees. Pick up this very interesting history of elves to find out where else they live and go on a journey to a strange new world.

    Lo tengo en formato PDF, aún no lo leo. Me encantaría poder conseguirlo impreso. La pena es que no esté traducido al español!! :(

    Like all the Dragon Lance books, this reads ok but is unlikely to blow you away. You're frequently told people are brilliant or strong, but hardly ever shown with their actual feats.

    Deep Elves. Prideful and extreme isolationists. Another book into the world of elves.
