This book is the second in the DragonLance: Legends trilogy. It takes us from when Raistlin, Caramon, and Crysania arrive in the Tower of High Sorcery at Panthalas until Raistlin and Crysania enter the portal to challenge Takhisis, the Queen of Darkness. Nothing is ever easy for these characters, and they find the portal is missing and they must trek across the land to find it. Along the way, they pick up an army and begin to lead them in the Dwarfgate Wars, a war fought between hungry people and those who have food stored up.
All of Legends is a time-travel tale, and in War of the Twins we start to confront some of the contradictions and challenges that time travel presents. Indeed, these challenges haunt the main characters. They find they are forced to follow in the footsteps of time—even though they know what is going to happen. They struggle to change what they know is going to take place yet find that everything they do is futile to make any change in history.
