Day 22: First D&D-based novel you ever read.
Dragons of Autumn Twilight was the first D&D novel I read. My mother had read Quag Keep years before, but her description of it never interested me enough to pick that one up. I immediately fell in love with the world of Dragonlance. Fizban was awesome, and even the Kender couldn't sway my interest.
I even remember fretting all summer long (1985) over the sickeningly sappy love triangle, waiting eagerly for Dragons of Spring Dawning to come out.
Then there was the series that went back in time - which was kind of interesting. But all the stuff that was printed after that - meh.
A year or two ago I went back and read Dragons of Autumn Twilight again. Nostalgic, yes, but it definitely fits into that whole YA thing, and doesn't really lift it's chin above that pigeon-hole.
The Boy loved the series - that's all that matters. :)
