Publisher's Summary

The first novel in Lawrence Watt-Evans' Obsidian Chronicles: Dragon Weather.

Arlian had lived his entire life on the Smoking Mountain - the stony ground, jagged peaks, and black glass were all he had ever known.

But then came dragon weather: Oppressive heat, dark and angry clouds...weather that lured the dragons from their caverns deep beneath the earth.

And the dragons came - monsters with no sympathy for humans; dragons who destroyed his entire village and everyone in it. Everyone, that is, except Arlian.

Orphaned and alone, Arlian is taken by looters and sold into slavery, sent to labor in the mines for the rest of his life - until a freak accident and an act of mercy sets him free.

Free to seek revenge on the looters, the slavers - and the dragons.

But in all of history, no one has ever slain a dragon. Can one obsessed young man change the world and do what no one has ever done before?

    "AMAZING"

    Completely different than any other book within this genre. An entire unique outlook on dragons and completely addictive to read. I hope the other two books already written find there way on audible soon. This book should be widely spread across as a MUST READ.

    "Wonderful Story with Great Narration"
    What did you love best about Dragon Weather: Obsidian Chronicles?

    The best part of DW was the narration. Shawn did a great job of giving every character life and personality.


    What other book might you compare Dragon Weather: Obsidian Chronicles to and why?

    honestly, Dragon Weather isn't much like any other books I've read. I mean, it has similar fantasy elements to LOTR or HP, but the storytelling is so much different.


    Which character – as performed by Shawn Saavedra – was your favorite?

    I was a big fan of his portrayal of Black. He gave Black a wonderful gritty edge that really translated the "rough and tumble" nature of the character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have loved to have listened to this book in one sitting, but sadly, I don't have 20 straight hours to devote to a book! Just know that if I could, I would.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was fantastic. I read it in highschool and when I found out there was an audiobook, I was floored. Now we just need the other two books in the Obsidian Chronicles and I will be a happy camper!!

    "SciFi Count of Monte Christo"

    Lawrence Watt-Evan is one of my favorite fantasy writers. He does it once again with a great tale. I hope audible puts more of his work out.

    "This book was amazing can't wait for the next"

    Over all the narrator was great and the story was amazing but I feel like at the start of the story the over all story was kinda weak"just at first" . Basically just a few to meany coincidences at the start but over all if you're a fan of the heroes journey with some pretty good twists a and fun but not childish plot I'd recommend it. By the end I'll fell in love with the characters and the the book ended really strong.
