No surprise, Dragonlance Chronicles comes out much better than Xanth did. I think we've discussed this series before, but it's a great series that serves as a great introduction to fantasy tropes, introducing what really feels like a fleshed out D&D campaign, along with good world building. The series doesn't really deconstruct any tropes or introduce anything new to the genre, but as a rather straight forward fantasy series, it does a great job. I should probably go back and re-read the series.
