Lifelong friends, they went their separate ways. Now they are together again, though each holds secrets from the others in his heart. They speak of a world shadowed with rumors of war. They speak of tales of strange monsters, creatures of myth, creatures of legend. They do not speak of their secrets. Not then. Not until a chance encounter with a beautiful, sorrowful woman, who bears a magical crystal staff, draws the companions deeper into the shadows, forever changing their lives and shaping the fate of the world.
No one expected them to be heroes.
Least of all, them.

Great novel for any d&d, fantasy or sci-fi fan. Good presentation and reading.
Loved this series good to returning to it
I've listened to some audiobooks with truly bad narration. Paul Boehmer is not good, but he isn't terrible. He sounds like a stage actor, with the overenunciation typical of that sort of presentation. I thought that his biggest weakness was in choosing appropriate voices for the characters. Tanis sounds like an aged English professor, while the rest of the characters have very little differentiation, except for the Alabama accent of the Gully Dwarves (which I kind of enjoyed). It's a mixed bag, but it isn't unlistenable and you will get used to his presentation after a few chapters.
A working stiff who loves to read. My taste range from Syfy and fantasy to history and politics. Read at you own risk!
I remember when this story came out and how excited I was. Now hearing it for thec first time is great.
this was a favorite book of mine as a teen I look forward to listening to it. I was disappointed in the choice of the narrator's. Boehmer did a good job in the Nicholas Flamel books. sadly his style doesn't fit Dragon Lance.
A great story, reminds me of my younger years!
Very well read and written, defiantly would recommend to listen! Can't wait for the next book!
So there's a large dose of nostalgia for me when listening to this book. The abridged version was one of the very first audiobooks I ever listened to while on a trip in Korea in 1991. The unabridged version is very good. This is a fun fantasy story within a well thought-out world.
As has been stated in other reviews, the narrator wasn't the best, but I also didn't find him as horrible as others have on here. His voice characterizations (especially for Tasselhof and Fizban) were pretty good. I'm not sure why all the Elves speak with a bad British accent though. Southern redneck gulley dwarfs were an interesting choice as well. I found it funny, but I'm not sure how people with that accent will feel listening to this story. :)
