Publisher's Summary

Raistlin Majere has become a Black Robe wizard and travels to Neraka, the lord city of the Dark Queen, ostensibly to work for her, though in reality he means to further his own quest for power. But Takhisis finds out that the dragon orb has entered her city and sends her draconians to find and destroy the wizard who has it in his possession. Before her agents can strike, though, Raistlin finds out that Takhisis means to take control of all wizardly magic. She has ordered Kitiara to set a trap for the Gods of Magic on the Night of the Eye, when all the high-ranking wizards will be in Neraka to celebrate.

As the forces of light, with help from the good dragons, are turning the tide of battle, Raistlin is forced to flee, for his foes are closing in on him. As the Dragon Highlords vie for the Crown of Power in the Temple of the Dark Queen, Raistlin Majere wages his own desperate battle against Takhisis in the dungeons below and meets again the brother he betrayed. The fate of the world hangs in the balance.

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.

Great book.

I put this book up at the same level as Chronicles Awesome writing.. The recording was decent, but it drove me crazy that names were not pronounced the same as in other volumes of the same storyline. You would think that someone who was doing this job would listen to the other stories in the series to ensure they were providing good continuity before they called Cyan Bloodbane "See-en Bloodbane".

Truly Impressed with Sandra Burr

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, because Dragonlance is something I've always kept close to my heart. The stories are epic and enthralling, the characters will make you weep (the Majere twins especially) and the setting of the world is so detailed and extensive that I sometimes feel like I know more about what's happening in Krynn than I do in my own world!

Which character – as performed by Sandra Burr – was your favorite?

Raistlin always has and always will be my favorite character. Ever. So of course, I was a bit skeptical when I saw this book was narrated by Sandra Burr, and I wondered if Raistlin's voice would sound out of character, but I had nothing to worry about! Burr's interpretation of Raistlin's voice is spot on, even though her voice cannot be as low as a male's, and I find myself forgetting that I am listening to someone of the opposite gender speak as Raistlin. And her draconian voices are so expressive and eerie, and sound so much more reptilian than any other narrator I have ever heard! (And I've listened to a lot of Dragonlance audiobooks)

Any additional comments?

I guess some people won't like listening to Burr, and I suspect that, for some people, it's because they aren't open minded enough to listen to a woman narrate a male cast of characters. Even if you don't agree with the choices Burr makes for the characters' voices, you have to admit, that she commits to telling the story. I think that makes her a dedicated performer.Since getting this book, I've listened to it so many times I can't even count. And once I start it again, I have to listen to the whole thing all the way through. To me, that means that the narrator really does the story justice, in my opinion.

Sandra Burr does amazingly well

If you could sum up Dragons of the Hourglass Mage in three words, what would they be?

intense, exciting, resolving

Which character – as performed by Sandra Burr – was your favorite?

Kitiara. The other narrators I've heard perform her were all men, and they just couldn't do her character right. Same goes for the other females. Burr performs the male characters well, too.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No. I'd read the novel before, and I liked it enough to want to listen to it at work. For me there were some 'aha!' moments because it answered some questions I'd always had.
