Publisher's Summary

Now the people know that the dragon minions of Takhisis, Queen of Dragons, have returned. The people of all nations prepare to fight to save their homes, their lives, and their freedom. But the races have long been divided by hatred and prejudice. Elven warriors and human knights fight among themselves. It seems the battle has been lost before it begins.

The companions are separated, torn apart by war. A full season will pass before they meet again - if they meet again. As the darkness deepens, a disgraced knight, a pampered elf maiden, and a rattle-brained kender stand alone in the pale winter sunlight.

Not much in the way of heroes.

    "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.

    "Not Pleased with new reader."

    First of all I absolutely love this series. The Chronicles Series from the Dragonlance world contains so many fun charecter. This book definately takes you from the first book running through the progression of the War.

    I started listening to this series with Ax Norman, and then audible switched to the reading by Paul Boehmer. Mr. Boehmer reads alot like a text to speech program meets William Shatner. He puts voices to some charecters but only a few and not consistently.

    "These books are wonderful!"

    I really enjoyed this book. The characters are wonderfully fleshed out. These books are really fun to listen to. This is the second book in the series I have listened to and I feel as though I've known these characters forever. They are well written and I feel a personal attachment to them . The narrator performed very well. His character voices fit well with the images of the characters in my head. I was fully immersed in the world when listening. If you are into fantasy at all I would definitely recommend picking up this series.

    "A Tale of Honor"

    I read the book as a kid, and loved it. But I missed so much of the meaning, universal meaning in its pages that I can see now as an adult. This is an incredible story of everyday life told through the mist of might and magic, Gods and superstition, hate and love. And our narrator does an incredible job of bringing the words to life in telling the story.

    "Great story, poor narration"
    What did you like most about Dragons of Winter Night?

    The story is excellent. I read the book many years ago when I was still playing the Dungeons and Dragons FRP game. You can see how the game influenced the book and you get a D&D feel from the story.


    What didn’t you like about Paul Boehmer’s performance?

    His pacing and intonation is all wrong. He pauses in the wrong places and emphasizes the wrong words. His pronunciation is very good and clear but he seems to concentrate purely on this and not on flow and the conveyance of meaning using pace and intonation. It is very distracting and spoils the enjoyment of this book a lot and makes it hard work to listen to. This is a great shame as the story is good.

    "Still a fantastic story, narrator is a bit off"
    Would you listen to Dragons of Winter Night again? Why?

    Yes I would, repeatedly. I LOVE the Dragonlance Chronicles, it was my first proper reading experience with a true d&d book, and it will remain with me forever as the best books I have read in this genre.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dragons of Winter Night?

    The entry into the nightmare forest of Lorac... wow that was powerful writing throughout that entire episode of the book. Unforgettable atmosphere and character interraction, I felt I was actually "in there" with them.


    Did Paul Boehmer do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

    Ah... yes he did, attempting a fair change of accent for each of the major characters, and even "warming" to a few of them. Paul is Shakespearean trained and it shows, but I find the diction and pace a little too "perfect" outside of the individual character portrayals. As the narrator he could have been a little warmer with a less formal approach to the reading.


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

    I was thoroughly gripped by the Lorac episode, feeling the pains and elations of each character as the story progressed. The style of writing had the desired effect at each stage of the episode, both crying with despair at the tragedy of the characters, and laughing with relief when the nightmare ended. This, to me, was the most emotional and most powerfully written part of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't express how much I really like these Chronicles, they hold a special place in my heart and I will always go back to them when I need to lose myself in a world of both endless despair and eternal hope. The depth of this book is vast and I would place it on a par with Middle Earth in it's complexity and history.
