    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.

    Matthew says: "TERRIBLE, Passionless, and Dry Narration"

    What did you love best about Time of the Twins?

    The story is still as entertaining as it was in the 80s. It's as interesting as the chronicles. The characters and storyline are great. I waited a very long time to get the unabridged audio versions of this series. Thank you. I hope we get more Weis and Hickman audio books.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I didn't think Dragonlance could get a WORSE reader than Boehmer from the chronicles, but this guy tops him. He reads all character voices the same. There is little to no distinction between the narration and the different characters speaking. His inflection is so flat-line, that it can even be confusing as to which character is speaking. During some parts, he changes the pronunciation of names from one sentence to the next. The story is entertaining enough, that I will still finish the series, but it could have been much better with a good narrator. I love this story and hope that Audible and the Dragonlance franchise will consider redoing the production with an performer worthy of such a classic series.
