Under a previous sun, Athas teemed with life. The sorcerer-king, after obtaining immortality for himself, united all lands under the power of his magic. But power-hungry overlords have carved the lands into pieces - setting themselves up as sorcerer-kings--and survival depends on the optimism of three steadfast people.

The Darksun world is incredible, and this story is particularly interesting. Added to this, the rendition of the characters by Ray Porter is really powerful and capturing. A recommended "read", for sure. Going to get the next one ASAP.
The story is very fun and addicting. I found my self making excuses to ride in the car to listen to the next part. I recommend it to all!!!
A wonderful introduction the world of Athas. All five of Denning's books, read by the talented Ray Porter do a good job of wetting your appetite for the world. Sadly, the other eight books in the older Dark Sun series have yet to be released on Audible. I recommend that fans of the series, old and new, get these audio editions. Hopefully it will encourage WotC and Audible to release the remaining books, and have readers as talented as Mr. Porter.
