Young Raistlin Majere has dedicated his life to magic, and is willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to his art. But is he truly evil? How did he embark on the path to becoming the most powerful wizard on Krynn? Here you will find the answers to those questions, and much more. This book is definitely worth reading if you are a fan of the dark mage. From childhood Raistlin had incredible magical talent, but he had little hope of formal training until a kind-hearted mage offered to pay for his schooling. Anyone who has ever been the victim of a bully will sympathize with his school years, and probably get a laugh out of his clever revenge. There are light-hearted moments, but this story is one of a tragic character. Raistlin is not entirely evil, but as the years pass he becomes increasingly bitter. And with good reason. He is shunned by other children, while his twin brother Caramon is adored. Magic is the only thing he can truly call his own, the one thing he can do better than his brother. Raistlin's first love is also revealed, as well as the twins' bittersweet relationship with their half-sister Kitiara Uth-Matar. When Raistlin is summoned to the Tower of High Sorcery for his Testing, he faces more than just a test of his magical abilities. His is the ultimate test of loyalties, and strength of will. Everything is explained in this book, including how Raistlin got his strange gold skin and eerie hourglass eyes. A must for those who enjoy the DragonLance series.
