Margaret Weis is contributing to the amazing story of Dragonlance with another series that holds three more outstanding books. In Time of the Twins, the first book, you read a story about how the terrible Lance war is finally over and all of the characters can finally enjoy a bit of peace.

The second book is called War of the Twins and in it, Margaret tells you that 100 years have passed since an event called the fiery Cataclysm almost destroyed all of Krynn and she explains how the people of Krynn have endured these hard 100 years.
And the final book, Test of the Twins, is the story in which Raistlin finally opens the portal to the Queen of Darkness’ dark land and enters. Raistlin and the Queen engage in a fierce battle for a seat among the gods.
The third choice for our best Margaret Weis books pick is this series that consists of 7 epic books. The story in these books is a thrilling one indeed as you get to read about the never-ending conflict between two deadly races, the Sartan and the Patryns.
Both of these races have evolved and mutated for hundreds of years after the effects of a nuclear holocaust that happened to their world. Now, they fight for domination and the Sartans have devised a plan to fix everything and live in peace by dividing their world into 4 realms and creating a fifth one that will be called the Labyrinth which will be a prison for the Patryns.
After the separation and division of their people into the 4 separate realms, the Sartans eventually lose contact with each other and just disappear from each other’s scopes. The story gets even more exciting after a few centuries pass and a Patryn called Xar manages to somehow escape the Labyrinth prison and begins to free other Patryns and plan the downfall of the Sartans.
