Publisher's Summary

A mage's soul is forged in the crucible of magic. Raistlin Majere is six years old when he is introduced to the archmage who enrolls him in a school for the study of magic. There the gifted and talented but tormented boy comes to see magic as his salvation. Mages in the magical Tower of High Sorcery watch him in secret, for they see shadows darkening over Raistlin even as the same shadows lengthen over all Ansalon.

Finally, Raistlin draws near his goal of becoming a wizard. But first he must take the drea Test in the Tower of High Sorcery. It will change his life forever - if he survives.

    Story
    "40 years later I read the back story"
    If you could sum up The Soulforge in three words, what would they be?

    Great back story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course Rastlin


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Taking down the temple





    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When they were altogether at The Last Home. Took me back 40 years when first read a dragonlance novel.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was well developed and the narration was spot on. If you love resonance you will love this backstory.

    "great book... narration meh"

    love this book. the narrator did well with the exception of the miss speaking of every day words example: Forbade became for bad. frustrating but the fire for my love of the story allowed me to make an exception for this narrator.

    "Wonderfully done"

    I have always been a true "Dragon Lance" fan since an early age. I have many of the paper bound books in my library and my children eventook up reading then thru high school. Weis has never failed to give a riveting tale that keeps the reader hungry for more.

    Story
    "Outstanding!!!"

    This book is a gem, IF you are already familiar with the world and characters the tale deals with. For those who are fans of the books this will be a vital and pleasurable listen, esp as Sorenson did an outstanding job and his delivery and drama are finely tuned. For those who aren't, while this book is good I would start with the original books of the Dragon Lance. Just as in the Star Wars movies, while enjoyable, they aren't as much fun if you never saw the first movies. Enjoy!

    Story
    "A nice blast from the past."
    If you could sum up The Soulforge in three words, what would they be?

    90's fantasy story


    What did you like best about this story?

    Rastlin finding himself and his connection to magic.


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

    not really


    Any additional comments?

    I read and enjoyed this book as a kid, it was a good coming of age story. I think it is a little dated now, or maybe my tastes have changed. It was kind of like going back and watching an episode of an old Saturday morning cartoon. Sure it had some awesome moments, but it did not seem as impactful and wild as aI recalled. Not bad, just maybe not what I recall it being.

    Story
    "I guess I've moved on..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I remember growing up and being in love with these books. I was so excited to find them on Audible. I listened to the sample of the Chronicles and just could not enjoy it. I found the combination of writing style and narration just didn't mesh well. Listening to this series seemed like it was better but I find myself constantly pulled out of the story by the narration. Sad.

    "Good book but a little choppy."

    I enjoyed the story but the flow seemed a bit off. I would recommend this to any Dragon Lance fan.

    "Bit slow"

    Quite a good listen if you can get past how twee it is. I loved the Dragonlance books as a teenager so thought I'd give this a go. I'm glad I did and will listen to the next in the series but it's not without its faults... Caramon speaks like a 6 year old even when he becomes an adult and he's portrayed as if he's retarded all through the book. I remember really liking the character so I'm surprised at how he's been written here. He can't even make a cup of tea without spilling water all over the floor!
    The story is okay although not a lot happens for long sections. All in though, I liked it!
