The Qualinesti (The Elven Nations Trilogy Volume Three), by Paul B. Thompson & Tonya R. Carter, paperback Dragonlance novel
“One of the most fabled stories in all of Krynn’s tradition – untold before now – the founding of Qualinost, and the creation of the magnificent society of the renegade elves, the Qualinesti.
Kith-Kanan becomes the first Speaker of the Suns. His reign can claim many triumphs, including a pact with the reclusive dwarves of Thorbardin that results in the great monument of Pax Tharkas. But Kith-Kanan is haunted by his failures: acrimony between the elven factions and the mysterious behaviour of his son, his future successor.”
