There the gifted and talented but tormented boy comes to see magic as his salvation. Mages in the magical Tower of High Sorcery watch him in secret, for they see shadows darkening over Raistlin even as the same shadows lengthen over all Ansalon.
Finally, Raistlin draws near his goal of becoming a wizard. But first he must take the drea Test in the Tower of High Sorcery. It will change his life forever - if he survives.

Great Wizard Story
Enjoyed hearing how it all began with the main character!!!
Chris does a great job of reading this book, enjoyed every minute of it!!!
Because it's 17+ hours listening to his in one setting isn't possible, but if it was, I would!!!
Great read, purchasing book two right now!!!
Shaken never Stirred
Depends on your personal tastes
Better than most
To long for one sitting
A must for any fan of Dragonlance. This chronicles Raistlin's first steps into magic and his first steps to becoming the Black Wizard everyone fears.
Story is ruined by the pace of the reader. Very slow... the pace put me to sleep several times... I had to increase the playback to 1.25 times the standard playback rate.
In general, I love the epic fantasy books.
I would suggest much better series in the "Fantasy: Epic" genre such as:
Wheel of Time: Eye of the World
Kingkiller Chronicles: The Name of the Wind
Stormlight: The Way of Kings
The Demon Cycle: The Warded Man
A Song of Ice and Fire: A Game of Thrones
