Absolutely amazing! This is proof that all audio books should be read by professional actors. The nuance Marsters gives really brings the book alive.

Lifelong friends, they went their separate ways. Now they are together again, though each holds secrets from the others in his heart. They speak of a world shadowed with rumors of war. They speak of tales of strange monsters, creatures of myth, creatures of legend. They do not speak of their secrets. Not then. Not until a chance encounter with a beautiful, sorrowful woman, who bears a magical crystal staff, draws the companions deeper into the shadows, forever changing their lives and shaping the fate of the world.

As a way to re-live the books, this is passable. Please don't make this your first encounter with the series. The reader is terrible. His pronunciations are incorrect and haphazard at times. His delivery is wooden and ill-timed. Yet, it's still not enough to destroy this work of art.

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.

The war against the dragon minions of Queen Takhisis rages on. Armed with the mysterious, magical dragon orbs and the shining, silver dragonlance, the companions bring hope to the world. But now, in the dawn of a new day, the dark secrets that have long shadowed the hearts of the friends come to the light. Betrayal, treachery, frailty, and weakness will nearly destroy all that they have accomplished. The greatest battle they have left to fight is within each of them. Yet, in the end, they will be heroes.

The story is good, but it has one too many "skin of his teeth" escapes. The best parts are when someone loses, like the Thistledowns. That was sad, and I felt the hit.
As for the reading :terrible. It's almost as if he stops when he's about to pronounce a strange or non-English word. It got to a point where I was cringing when I knew "dweomer" was comming. While I blame the author for overusing the archaic word, I blame the reader for over-articulating it "dwee-AH-mer". Not to mention the volume changes which strained my devices volume up button to the max.
In short: enjoyable, but I'm not doing this 37 more times.
