The first book in a series set in an uncharted land within the Dragonlance world. Blades of the Tiger explores beyond the realms of Ansalon, the traditional setting for Dragonlance novels, and into the land of Taladas. No title has ever been set in this unexplored region on the other side of the world, allowing for an infinite variety of new characters and experiences within the context of Dragonlance.

But half a world away, on the continent of Taladas, the troubles are just beginning. Sorcery, long thought lost, has returned to the world. Disasters wrack the land, nations clash, dark forces stir in the aftermath of the Godless Night. On the grasslands of the Tamire, an ambitious lord unites the barbarian tribes, streaming south for plunder and bloody conquest….
Among the fortresses and cities of the Minotaur League, a victorious general returns to his family after years away….
In the shadows, an elven thief tracks a mysterious enemy that seeks a stature of eldritch magic….
One will live, one will die, and one will wish for death. For ancient powers are waking in Taladas.
