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".

Bad narrator

The narrator is horrible! Her voices for flint and tas made me cringe. She doesnt understand these characters. They should have found someone else to narrate this book!

Narrator ruins the book

The story is interesting enough, though I have come to expect better from Weiss and Hickman. However, the narrator’s performance ruins the book. The voices are all but indistinguishable from one to the other. Pronunciation of the names is incorrect. It was like nails on a chalkboard. I wish Sandra Burr could have been more diligent in her research or whomever direct her abominable performance had deigned to listen and correct the pronunciation of the title character’s last name.

Dragons of the Hourglass Mage

This book superb. So much depth is added to Raistlin. We learn a lot of what makes him, well Raistlin Majere Master of Past and Present.
I love Slith’s many cameos too. He’s a personal favorite of mine and is great in this book.
On a side note the reason this has a 4 star narration is Tas’s voice. It’s awful. This book does have his smallest role though.

Really ties the story together.

Dude. This series really ties the whole story together, man. Although the information is not necessarily valuable to understanding the War of the Lance and the original chronicles, it definitely enhances the storyline with background information that does not in the slightest way come across as hastily put together.
