Between Chronicles and Legends, what made Raistlin aspire to godhood?

Raistlin Majere has become a Black Robe wizard and travels to Neraka, the lord city of the Dark Queen, ostensibly to work for her, though in reality he means to further his own quest for power. But Takhisis finds out that the dragon orb has entered her city and sends her draconians to find and destroy the wizard who has it in his possession. Before her agents can strike, though, Raistlin finds out that Takhisis means to take control of all wizardly magic. She has ordered Kitiara to set a trap for the Gods of Magic on the Night of the Eye, when all the high-ranking wizards will be in Neraka to celebrate.

As the forces of light, with help from the good dragons, are turning the tide of battle, Raistlin is forced to flee, for his foes are closing in on him. As the Dragon Highlords vie for the Crown of Power in the Temple of the Dark Queen, Raistlin Majere wages his own desperate battle against Takhisis in the dungeons below and meets again the brother he betrayed. The fate of the world hangs in the balance.

Unrated Critic Reviews for Dragons of the Hourglass Mage


I thought Kitiara’s climactic moment for this book built up wonderfully and dramatically throughout the book.

Of course, we realized that our style has changed over twenty-five years and that these would read differently, also that we would refer to other books (such as Legends) which is why we recommend people read Chronicles first, and then read Lost Chronicles.

Dragonlance Chronicles are the stories that belong symbolically to a generation of gamers and readers, and being a member of said generation, I am thankful that I was able to read the stories as they were written and deeply saddened to know this Dragonlance tale is at its end.
