Welcome to the World of Dragonships

Skylan Ivorson is a sea-raider of the Vindras and eventually becomes the Chief of Chiefs of all Vindras clans, an honor he truly feels he deserves as one who has been blessed by Skoval, the god of war.

But sometimes a blessing is a curse in disguise.

Skoval and the other ancient gods are under siege from a new generation of gods who are challenging them for the powers of creation... and the only way to stop these brash interlopers lies within the mysterious and hidden Five Bones of the Vektan Dragons.

It will be up to the Vindras people, as the dragon-goddess's champions, to undertake the quest to recover all Five. The fate of the Old Gods and the Vindras rests on their recovery--for this is not only a quest to save the world. It is also a quest for redemption.

Filled with heroes and heroines young and old and exotic adventure in a magic-forged world, this is a series that fully illustrates the mastery of world-building and storytelling that has made Weis and Hickman into "the" bestselling fantasy co-authors of all time.

I am a huge fan of Weis and Hickman's Dragonlance Series, and was looking forward to Bones of the Dragon when I stumbled on it at the library one day. However, I have to say that it was a truly disappointing book, and I will not be reading on beyond the first one.

The characters were all very shallow and never fully developed. They were also horrifically flawed, so much so that, while I kept hoping with each turn of the page that they would see the light and become stronger, they just kept making the same mistakes, and then there were more flawed characters introduced.

I hate saying this about a Weis & Hickman book, but just truly a disappointment.
