    Sequestered in the blackness of the dreaded Tower of High Sorcery in Palanthas, surrounded by nameless creatures of evil, Raistlin Majere weaves a plan to conquer the darkness - to bring it under his control. Crysania, a beautiful and devoted cleric of Paladine, tries to use her faith to lead Raistlin from the darkness. She is blind to his shadowed designs, and he draws her slowly into his neatly woven trap. Made aware of Raistlin’s plan, a distraught Caramon travels back in time to the doomed city of Istar in the days before the Cataclysm.

    What did you love best about Time of the Twins?

    This is a book series that I have followed or the better part of 20 years. I love both the Legends and Chronicles trilogies. These are exciting stories that tend to sweep up the reader more with each page.


    What did you like best about this story?

    If you have read the Chronicles trilogy (http://www.amazon.com/Dragonlance-Chronicles-Trilogy-Gift-Set/dp/0786926813) and need more, you've come to the right place.


    How could the performance have been better?

    As has been noted in other reviews the author has no background in these stories. It seems he did little to no research and there is no passion, or much of any emotion actually, as he reads.


    Any additional comments?

    If you absolutely don't have time to read these books yourself, then I would pick up this version, However, this performance robs the book of much of it's excitement and fun so my first recommendation would be to read them yourself.

    Once the Sith order teemed with followers. But their rivalries divided them in endless battles for supremacy - until one dark lord at last united the Sith in the quest to enslave the galaxy and exterminate the Jedi. Yet it would fall to another, far more powerful than the entire Brotherhood of Darkness, to ultimately realize the full potential of the Sith, and wield the awesome power of the dark side as never before.

    What made the experience of listening to Path of Destruction the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed the narration and additional sound effects. I think they added to the story nicely without being too over the top.


    What other book might you compare Path of Destruction to and why?

    I have only recently started listening to Star Wars books. If there are more like this trilogy I may never listen to anything else again.


    What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    FANTASTIC narration. I think Davis did a great job in separating out the characters with their own individual personalities and the whole book flowed smoothly. (I don't know if it matters but I listen to all of my books @ 1.5 speed and I didn't notice any problems with doing so with this book.)


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend all the books in this trilogy to anyone who is interested in the time between the old republic and the movies. Good story with some important lore.

    What made the experience of listening to The Richest Man in Babylon the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed everything about this audiobook. The story was intriguing and informative and the performance was fantastic. I don't think I can say enough good about this.


    What other book might you compare The Richest Man in Babylon to and why?

    This is the book that many other financial books base their information. The "pay yourself first" idea has been used time and time again. However, what makes this story interesting is the novel like feel to it.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration and story are so good that my children were entertained while in the car driving.
