Fistandantilus Reborn by Douglas Niles

Title:  Fistandantilus Reborn
Author:  Douglas Niles
Pages:  315
Genre:  Fantasy
Publisher:  TSR, 1994

Synopsis:  Emilo Haversack is unusually worried for a kender -- though he can't for the life of him remember what his problem is. Still, he's been wandering across Ansalon for quite some time, trying to remember what's wrong. All he can recall is the name of a very evil, very dead wizard . . . Fistandantilus. — Joined by a young kendermaid, a human lad, and a devout, if somewhat naive priest, Emilo is drawn into a mysterious quest. As he draws closer to the secret of his past, he and his friends find themselves caught in an increasingly sinister web of intrigue.

And as the conclusion of the adventure approaches, the companions learn that their pourpose is one that could catapult them from Krynn -- and forever change the destiny of the world they leave behind.

Review:  This book was great fun.  The kender, Emilo, is a great character.  In fact, all of the characters are good.  The story is exciting, full of dragons and evil wizards.  None of the characters from the first book were in this one, which seemed odd.

However, I'm already reading the third book and realize that Emilo winds up meeting up with Joel, Jas and Holly from the first novel.  I'm pleased because Emilo is even more amusing than Finder and that is saying something.

I've never read a book by this author before but I wasn't disappointed.  This book was surprisingly engaging and I finished it quickly.

Rating:  8 / 10
