Dragons of Winter Night: Dragonlance: Chronicles, Book 2 | [Margaret Weis, Tracy Hickman]

Dragons of Winter Night: Dragonlance: Chronicles, Book 2

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.

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.

    "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.
