Dragons of Summer Flame: Dragonlance: Chronicles, Book 4

Summer has come to Krynn, a summer unlike any before. The sun bears down on land and sea, searing the world with relentless light and heat. Clouds and rain are nowhere to be found, and even the darkness of night brings little relief from the strange and oppressive day. Meanwhile, those who commune regularly with their gods are uneasy. Every day, their deities become more distant, more difficult to reach. Clerics' prayers go unanswered, and magic goes awry.

Publisher's Summary

Summer has come to Krynn, a summer unlike any before. The sun bears down on land and sea, searing the world with relentless light and heat. Clouds and rain are nowhere to be found, and even the darkness of night brings little relief from the strange and oppressive day.

Meanwhile, those who commune regularly with their gods are uneasy. Every day, their deities become more distant, more difficult to reach. Clerics' prayers go unanswered, and magic goes awry. As the tension on Ansalon builds, estranged cousins Palin Majere and Steel Brightblade search for an explanation. It soon becomes evident that more than just magic is at stake.The fate of all Krynn hangs in the balance.

    Story
    "Great Book But it should not be called Book 4"
    Would you listen to Dragons of Summer Flame again? Why?

    Yes- wonderful story - some of my favorite characters were in it as well as new ones I loved (some of their sons!)


    What did you like best about this story?

    The stories Weis and Hickman write together are always amazing and Boehmer did a wonderful job reading it. What I liked best . . . That is too hard to say.


    What about Paul Boehmer’s performance did you like?

    His voice! Its perfect for the story and when he changes it for the characters it seems natural and adds to the story rather than distracts from it. Not to mention he has a really nice voice to listen to.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It had parts that were sad and because I know these characters from other books I did laugh at things they did (especially Tas).


    Any additional comments?

    I have an issue with the idea that this is called Chronicles Book 4. It does not have all the same main characters, it is 20+ years later, and a different war!

    But it is still a great story.

    "An old story well told"

    A story I read when I was a teenager just as good as I remember. An okay performance and a good Series of books.Worth a listen when all the Great stories run out or if your just stuck as to what you'll read next.

    Story
    "This book only confused me..."
    What would have made Dragons of Summer Flame better?

    More filled out, less jumping around.


    Would you recommend Dragons of Summer Flame to your friends? Why or why not?

    I have none.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Paul Boehmer’s performances?

    Sure.


    What character would you cut from Dragons of Summer Flame?

    World killing, Kryn has been through enough!


    Any additional comments?

    The ones before were better.
    But book one left me feeling I had missed a book or two...

    Story
    "A poor ending to a great series."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It depends on whether or not they had read the books that actually come between "Spring Dawning" and "Summer Flame". This book ties up a lot of loose ends and kills off a lot of characters that were alive and well in the last book. Unless you read the Legends series of books at the very least, you will be grasping for answers as to what the unending references by the characters mean. This book really should have been written so it could be the start of a new series or a one off rather than the end of a series that ended just fine with the 3rd book.


    Would you recommend Dragons of Summer Flame to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, but with the stipulations I pointed out above.


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

    Nothing. Performance was animated but not very engaging.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The death of one of the Heroes of the Lance. You'll know.


    Any additional comments?

    This book should have come with a disclaimer as it alludes to so much that the reader/listener will not understand unless they read some of the spin off series like "Legends". The book does fine with its own story and the new characters are woven into the universe well enough that they are viable but its like we get all these flashbacks from Tas and others that make no sense until you have the grounding of the other books.
