Publisher's Summary

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. The souls of the dead rob the living of their magic. A dragon overlord threatens the very land the elves hold most dear.

Amidst the chaos, a band of brave and selfless heroes struggles against an immortal power that appears to thwart them at every turn. The encroaching darkness threatens to engulf all hope, all faith, all light.

The War of Souls rages on.

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.

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

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.

Great book!

Loved it! Huge fan of the original Dragonlance and this delivers. Wasn't a big fan of the narrator in book one but I have grown to like her by now. Inconsistent pronunciation not as bad as other Dragonlance novels and I am either accustomed to it by now or they disappear almost entirely by the book 2.
