Publisher's Summary

Raistlin Majere has become a Black Robe wizard and travels to Neraka, the lord city of the Dark Queen, ostensibly to work for her, though in reality he means to further his own quest for power. But Takhisis finds out that the dragon orb has entered her city and sends her draconians to find and destroy the wizard who has it in his possession. Before her agents can strike, though, Raistlin finds out that Takhisis means to take control of all wizardly magic. She has ordered Kitiara to set a trap for the Gods of Magic on the Night of the Eye, when all the high-ranking wizards will be in Neraka to celebrate.

As the forces of light, with help from the good dragons, are turning the tide of battle, Raistlin is forced to flee, for his foes are closing in on him. As the Dragon Highlords vie for the Crown of Power in the Temple of the Dark Queen, Raistlin Majere wages his own desperate battle against Takhisis in the dungeons below and meets again the brother he betrayed. The fate of the world hangs in the balance.

    "Poor Narration"

    All three of these books are great for fans of the Dragonlance Series, but the narration is horrible. I won't buy another book read by Sandra Burr.

    Story
    "Truly Impressed with Sandra Burr"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, because Dragonlance is something I've always kept close to my heart. The stories are epic and enthralling, the characters will make you weep (the Majere twins especially) and the setting of the world is so detailed and extensive that I sometimes feel like I know more about what's happening in Krynn than I do in my own world!


    Which character – as performed by Sandra Burr – was your favorite?

    Raistlin always has and always will be my favorite character. Ever. So of course, I was a bit skeptical when I saw this book was narrated by Sandra Burr, and I wondered if Raistlin's voice would sound out of character, but I had nothing to worry about! Burr's interpretation of Raistlin's voice is spot on, even though her voice cannot be as low as a male's, and I find myself forgetting that I am listening to someone of the opposite gender speak as Raistlin. And her draconian voices are so expressive and eerie, and sound so much more reptilian than any other narrator I have ever heard! (And I've listened to a lot of Dragonlance audiobooks)


    Any additional comments?

    I guess some people won't like listening to Burr, and I suspect that, for some people, it's because they aren't open minded enough to listen to a woman narrate a male cast of characters. Even if you don't agree with the choices Burr makes for the characters' voices, you have to admit, that she commits to telling the story. I think that makes her a dedicated performer.Since getting this book, I've listened to it so many times I can't even count. And once I start it again, I have to listen to the whole thing all the way through. To me, that means that the narrator really does the story justice, in my opinion.

    "Sandra Burr does amazingly well"
    If you could sum up Dragons of the Hourglass Mage in three words, what would they be?

    intense, exciting, resolving


    Which character – as performed by Sandra Burr – was your favorite?

    Kitiara. The other narrators I've heard perform her were all men, and they just couldn't do her character right. Same goes for the other females. Burr performs the male characters well, too.


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

    No. I'd read the novel before, and I liked it enough to want to listen to it at work. For me there were some 'aha!' moments because it answered some questions I'd always had.

    "like a sequel made just for the profit"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?


    no real storyline and the characters are not at all in-character. there is no logical flow to the character's behavior and the dialogue is extremely wooden. example:as any fan of D&D will know is actually a requirement to be high willed, brilliant and dedicated to bear a mage robe (be it white, red or black), yet the book is peopled with idiotic lazy wizards who are illogically incompetent. there is a world shattering artifacts that is sneaked into the main city by claiming it is a marble...though it radiated magic and even it was a marble there is no reason the corrupt official wouldn't have taken it anyway as he takes everything else...literally the book details that he takes the spell components like rose petals and bat droppings. the primary protagonist does things like imbibe an offered drink from a group of criminals with out checking for drugs or making any protection charms...yes, Raistlin the Master of Time and who defeats the Evil Chromatic Dragon Goddess and is the beloved Dark Wizard of the Dragonlance Chronicles gets slipped a Mickey and falls for it. the whole book is like that, it is a terrible terrible terrible plot.this book is like a bad movie sequel banking on name recognition to sell a shoddy product to gullible fans (like me). ignore this book, the whole trilogy is not worth the cost. Margaret Weis actually kinda warns you in the Forward i did not take the warning seriously...don't make my mistake.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman again?

    of course! they have many wonderful books


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    the book was dross and it would have been impossible to detract from it


    What character would you cut from Dragons of the Hourglass Mage?

    the primary protagonist and antagonist, and all of the supporting cast except a few Draconians and the harry potter type wizard shop owner.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible shouldn't carry this audio book.
