A mysterious force holds Krynn in thrall. A young woman, protected by her regiment of dark-armored knights, calls upon the might of an unknown god to bring victory to her army as it sweeps across the land.

Mispronounced Majere

It's a small thing. Narrator, do you say, "come over here, or "come over hereeee? 😒 but much better than chronicles

How is this woman a narrator?

Story is absolutely fantastic, love Dragonlance more than any other books I’ve ever read. Not to sound overdramatic but the discovery of the Dragonlance series books 25 years ago possibly saved me from committing suicide. I enjoyed them so much it changed and saved my life. With that said, this narrator is absolutely horrible. She mispronounces common English words, names, makes elves sound like Keebler elves that should be in a tree baking cookies. Was there NO resource available to her to consult in order to at least learn how to pronounce “Majere” for instance? (Majeery? Really?)

So yeah that’s my review, I hope it doesn’t detract from the authors.

Okay story, okay narrator, terrible reading

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Change the narrator - the reading of the text is terrible.

If you’ve listened to books by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman before, how does this one compare?

Poor narration. Okay story.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The reading of the text was abysmal. Constant incorrect pronunciations and simply misread words... examples: liches should be pronounced lih-Chez, but she read it as lik-Es. Another instance the word was immortality, and the narrator read it as immorality, in spite of the context. Finally, the name Majere is pronounced mah-Zheer, but the narrator constantly reads it as ma-Jeer-ey. It's pretty bad.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

See my review for Book 1.

Any additional comments?

I would like my money back on this series.

Excellent book, narrator has some quirks

Well written and entertaining, but the narrator mispronounces some words in a manner I find irritating.
For instance, the word shone, which should be pronounced with a hard “ō”, she pronounces as “shawn”. There are about a half dozen other words she consistently mispronounces, but it is only mildly irritating, and not enough to significantly damage enjoyment of the book.

mispronouncing names and places

Would you try another book from Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman and/or Marieve Herington?

Marieve Herington should never try to read an epic. Mispronouncing the names of the characters that I have come to love in the Dragon lance stories is an irritant worse than a sore tooth. Makes what would be as wonderful a book as the others from Weis and Hickman unbearable to listen to.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Taz

Would you be willing to try another one of Marieve Herington’s performances?

loved her reading of the fire rose but I will not waste time and money to here her read series books

The story is awesome

Once again ,the story was amazing . The narrator...sounds like a 5 yr old just learning to read. Mispronouncing tons of words . She clearly isnt educated enough for this job. It took everything in me to finish this amazing story. You could not pay me to listen to this narrator again .

great story, narration was ok

story was great, but if you didn't read the previous trilogy I'd suggest you do so. I went back and read them before going to book 2 of this trilogy. I skipped the last trilogy because people said it was bad because it was not hickman and weis but I rather enjoyed it. so read it and then this one will be more enjoyable.

the narration was ok on this book, but nothing great. got the job done and wasn't bad, but I've heard much better from other books.

Total Garbage

Worst narrator I've ever heard. It is stunning how she manages to mispronounce every single name. It's so distracting. Don't quit your day job lady. Somehow you manage to mess up reading words. You'd think that if you are going to get paid to just read fiction you'd maybe talk to someone in the Dragonlance on how to pronounce names. You know, if you are going to read an entire trilogy. 🙄

The strongest of the trilogy

This series is brilliant and I highly recommend it. But the thing is, I’m blind. So I’m stuck with audiobooks. For some reason the narrator hits most of the notes in this one. (She’s brilliant, I just wish had read up on gods last names. her mispronunciations in a long running series are VERY jarring in book 1 and especially in book 3 when you find the identity of The One God. And her name is used constantly.) If you get any of the audiobooks in this series get this one.
And as always feel free to listen to the sample. You may disagree with me.
