Tyson Brandon Enjoyable classic magic Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? I'd recommend this for Dragonlance fans - covers a lot of magic from Krynn in this trilogy although a lot of the elements probably come from the old game more than other dragonlance books What did you like best about this story? I liked that we get to see what the life of a more or less regular wizard is like on Krynn Have you listened to any of J.

I first read this book in 6th grade, 21 years ago, and though I had forgotten much, okay nearly all of it, I always remembered liking The Night of the Eye by Mary Kirchoff. Well, after 21 years, not only was it as good as I remember it, but I am certain to have picked up more of the subtle nuances I know I must have missed when I read this book as a preadolescent.

Compare the spell list by the wizard player character class in the Player's Handbook of Dungeons and Dragons to the spells commonly found in the novels: light, sleep, charm, fireball, lightning bolt etc. The reason for the reduction lies in the balance of power. If every high level wizard were running around slinging 'wish' spells, how could a writer establish a sense of gravity within the world? In the first installment of The Defenders of Magic Trilogy, The Night of The Eye, Mary Kirchoff gives us a showcase of magic, past the mundane spells commonly found in most DragonLance books, albeit at a measured pace.
Some readers may find the journey to be slow, and bereft of "action" unaware of the smooth and steady gradation, the details behind the arcane. Here she must place blind faith in a complete stranger and when Rand mentions Lyim, the triangle finally becomes complete and allows her mind to rest at ease knowing she made the right decision to place trust in Lyim, previously a total stranger.
And there are plenty more transitional sentences that help the reader empathize and visualize, either what is going on inside the characters head, or in the story. Subtle transitional sentences. It's not just a fireworks display of magic, its the thinking that fuels that arcane. How can I, the reader, become a wizard? Its the visualization technique that Rand must master. Its the contrast between rote memorization and understanding, facility that matters. It is the sensory information outside of sight, invoked BY sight. It IS the fireworks display at the end of the book.
It is this feeling of the magic woven smoothly and balanced into the text that gives the impression of the spells being so researched in order to manifest ways into writing like a wizard. This book is rich in writing, and demands care, or perhaps experience, or more aptly a higher character level of the reader to appreciate all of its subtleties that bring the world of wizards to life. Distilling the headlong passion out of decision making. I also liked reading about how a neutrally aligned character might react such as in the beginning when the head of the three orders are explaining their positions.
The Mistress of the Black Robes tries to, lets say massage, or justify use of the dark arts black magic with the inner sense of passion we all have, and the Head of the Red Robes smirks.
Subtle transition sentences that give you insights into how wizards might think. If my memory serves me correctly, the fireworks only get bigger and better from here including a new druidic magic. Doesn't Rand somehow end up on the moon? But 21 years later, The Night of The Eye by Mary Kirchoff still holds up, and with greater depth than I remember I dont know how I could have absorbed all of the subtle nuances in this book in 6th grade. Sep 18, Laura rated it really liked it Shelves: medieval-fantasy. I admit, whenever I go to read a book labelled "Dragonlance" or "The Forgotten Realms" or some other such world, I always hesitate.
Don't ask me why - past experience has taught me that they're great reads. However, I still have that moment's pause before I begin reading. In this book, like always, I was pleasantly surprised. The story's main character is a man named Guerrand or "Rand" for short.
He's a bit cautious and timid at the beginning, but it's great to see him grow and become more sure I admit, whenever I go to read a book labelled "Dragonlance" or "The Forgotten Realms" or some other such world, I always hesitate. He's a bit cautious and timid at the beginning, but it's great to see him grow and become more sure of himself through the story. The magic is described beautifully. I'm not sure what else to say without spoiling anything May 19, Ronald Wilcox rated it it was amazing Shelves: dungeons-dragons-setting , fantasy.
Very good tale set in the DragonLance series of novels set on Krynn. Magic was mostly stripped from the land for awhile but the three branches of magic are gradually building again. Guerrand is the younger brother of Lord Cormac and has aspirations of becoming a mage but his brother, who hates magic, insists he learn to be a cavalier instead. After ten years in training, he still has not progressed beyond squire because it is not what he wants. When his younger brother is killed, Guerrand is app Very good tale set in the DragonLance series of novels set on Krynn.
When his younger brother is killed, Guerrand is approached by a mysterious mage who encourages him to follow his dream to be a mage instead of continuing as a cavalier-in-training and marrying a woman to get back some lands for his family. He runs away and follows his dream, not suspecting the difficult times ahead for him and his family Very likable protagonist and absorbing story.
Looking forward to reading the next two in the trilogy. Apr 02, D rated it really liked it. Great story.
