reaching to tie it all together

this book tries too hard to make everything fit. the new characters are so blah and the personslities of the old characters have all changed drastically . it feels like the first half of book one and the last half of book 3 were written first then everything else is just filler.

Okay story, okay narrator, terrible reading

What disappointed you about Dragons of a Vanished Moon?

The reading of the text was abysmal.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The character of Mina and her (spoiler) misguided devotion was interesting. The constant overt reminder that (spoiler) the gods had left Krynn was a bit boring.

What didn’t you like about Marieve Herington’s performance?

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 of Book 1.

Any additional comments?

I would like to get my money back on this series.

Great Story pulled me past the voice actress

If you could sum up Dragons of a Vanished Moon in three words, what would they be?

The end of another fantastic trilogy by Margret Wise and Tracy Hickman. This book left me wanting to know more about the fate of the peoples of Krynn, as Wise/Hickman usually do. I'm a big fan of Gerard uth Mondar and Odila Windlass. There is a distinct lack of Dwarf in this trilogy that does bug me though. So much elf, so little dwarf. =(

What other book might you compare Dragons of a Vanished Moon to and why?

Chaos Gate of the Deathgate cycle (5th book). This book doesn't feel like the end of the story by any means. It leaves you feeling like events continue, which they do. They continue in the books of other authors which, sadly, don't live up to the legacy of Wise and Hickman.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Marieve Herington?

Nick Sullivan (for the male cast)

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The finale battle between men and a god.

Any additional comments?

Marieve Herington isn't a bad Narrator by any means, but she clearly isn't familiar with some of the terminology in the DnD lexicon. Which at times is jarring. Additionally, her portrayal of elves left me feeling a bit ruffled. I've never thought of elves as sounding so much like Santa's little helpers in any of the DnD worlds. Hearing the men as high-pitched, squeaking voiced, waifs bugged me. Particularly when the female elves have lower more stately voices. All in all, I think these books should be given to different voice actors per part. I can't think of a better Mina, Alana, Odila or Laurana, but I'd have loved to hear all of the male parts done a bit more justice, particularly Gilithis and Alana's second in command.

Great ending.

The story and all its threads were brought together in a true Dragonlance manner. Loved this series, maybe even more than the first trilogy.

wonderful as always!!

As per usual with this series, the writing, in my opinion, is wonderful with fantastic characters that you love or love to hate! Also per usual the narrator was really good with my one tiny critique being her limited range of character voices. But I mean really, that's not a huge deal and she is still very pleasant to listen to and is engaging enough to keep me interested when working long nights or driving long distance!

A great final story!

I loved it! It was such a wonderful conclusion to a series of books that have kept me entertained for a long time!
The most memorable moment for me was when Takesis was in the arena. What an intense moment!
The narration was wonderfully done although I did miss having Paul Boehmer as the narrator.
