Publisher's Summary

The Companions are back, and so are their enemies in the second volume of the Lost Chronicles.

Kitiara discovers that a former lover, Tanis Half-elven, and his friends were responsible for the death of Highlord Verminaard. This revelation puts Kit in danger, for Emperor Ariakas hears of the connection and suspects Kit of having arranged the assassination. He orders his witch, the exotic Iolanthe, to spy on Kit, who clinches her own doom by becoming obsessed with finding Tanis, convincing Ariakas that she is indeed a traitor. But Kit is not one to take a sentence of death easily.

Kit's rival, Laurana, begins her own journey to destiny, as she travels to Icereach with Sturm, Flint, Tasslehoff, and three Solamnic knights led by Sir Derek Crownguard. The knights are on a quest for the fabled dragon orb that will be the salvation of Solamnia. What none of them know is that they are all being led into a deadly trap laid for them by the winternorn, the dark elf wizard Feal-Thas.

But it is Kitiara who faces the greatest challenge. To save herself, she vows to Takhisis that she will spend the night in Dargaard Keep, the dread castle of the death knight, Lord Soth. As she and Skie fly to challenge the death knight, Kit is well aware that in three hundred years, not one person who has ever faced Lord Soth has survived the ordeal.

Performance

I really enjoyed the storytellers theatric spin. Some people might be put off by it. My only problem was the voice she used for Tasslehoff Burrfoot. It made him seem to have serious brain damage. Overall great job.

Poor Narration

All three of these books are great for fans of the Dragonlance Series, but the narration is horrible. I won't buy another book read by Sandra Burr.

Classic sci-fi/fantasy, solid narration

Unobtrusive narrator, I was able to get as absorbed & "lost" in this as I could in a "real" book. It was so good, I listened to it again after I finished it the first time.

Dragons of Highlord Skies.

I always loved Kit, and she’s portrayed perfectly in this audiobook. The story is full of intrigue and action. This is also a well crafted look into The Dragon Armies. All the characters are portrayed perfectly (except poor Tas. He voice is just...wrong). This novel is wonderful if you’ve come this far. If not...come back to Kryyn.

Another amazing performance by Sandra Burr

A great performance and excellent story. There are a few mispronunciations and Tass is a little off. He should have a high pitched voice and speak a little more rapidly. Otherwise was very enjoyable and a pleasant listen.

Worst Narrator Yet

the content of this audiobook is solid Weis and Hickman or still at the top of their writing game there are some idiosyncrasies with the character development that makes it apparent that this is however a retcon but the worst offense is the terrible terrible tasslehoff voice this lady does

Tasslehoff is terrible.

I love these books. But every time this woman opens her mouth to voice Tasslehoff, I am tempted throw my headphones out the window. Other than that, the story is pretty good and the narration isn't bad.

A nice companion to The Chronicles

Fills in key missing details from Dragonlance Chronicles and reunites you with the Heroes of the Lance once again.

Kit at her finest

As one who always loved Kit as a character, this book brought her even more to life and made her real. I thoroughly enjoyed the way in which the authors wove the narrator into he story.

If you love the Dragonlance series, you'll love this one.
