1. This was the most meaningless story I think I've read in the Dragonlance pantheon. It shares not one shred of tangible meaning to any larger (much ..Show More »less epic) storyline that I've come to love and expect from a Dragonlance series. There is no mechanic that drove this, the first book in a new trilogy, like the epic quest from the one before this, much less the rest of the DL core series. absolute tosser, this one. 2. The core characters took way too far of a swing in moral alignment in the span of two years with not nearly good enough explanation or reason. I was reading a story about characters from the last trilogy that were comoletely foreign to me. and the supporting characters were unvelievable and boring. There was maybe one character I actually cared for. And that was the one that stayed reasonable true to their charavter from the last series. The rest of the characters and the story and plot, I literally had no desire to care about in the least bit. it 3. As producers and directors of audio books, can you PLEASE pay attention to the material that came before your new project? You may care more about your creative license and your voice actor's but we readers have spent upwards of 60 hours listening to a trilogy that took place immediately before this one and we have gotten used to the accents and pronunciations prior actors breathed into these characters. please make an effort at least!
