Publisher's Summary

Sequestered in the blackness of the dreaded Tower of High Sorcery in Palanthas, surrounded by nameless creatures of evil, Raistlin Majere weaves a plan to conquer the darkness - to bring it under his control.

Crysania, a beautiful and devoted cleric of Paladine, tries to use her faith to lead Raistlin from the darkness. She is blind to his shadowed designs, and he draws her slowly into his neatly woven trap.

Made aware of Raistlin’s plan, a distraught Caramon travels back in time to the doomed city of Istar in the days before the Cataclysm. There, together with the ever-present kender Tasslehoff, Caramon will make his stand to save Raistlin’s soul.

Or so he believes.

    "Get rid of this narrator!!!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Title says it all I will not be buying the other books in this series because of him. I love the book have read it before in paperback and wanted to listen to it again but I'll have to go look for it else where.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Have it re-read by a different narrator.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger at the narrator that can't even pronounce the name consistently let alone properly, not to mention the lack of any characters in his reading, everyone sounds the same. You would think they would get Professional narrators who at least try to give a voice or different feeling to each character, especially for the cost of these books.

    "Excellent Series, Horrible Narrator"
    What did you love best about Time of the Twins?

    The storyline and characters are simply fantastic!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot and development of characters were the best part of this story.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Bring back the original narrator, Paul Boehmer!


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

    Yes, but with Paul Boehmer as the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    The original narrator, Paul Boehmer, of the first three books brought each character to life. However, Ax Norman's voice is flat and boring; all characters sound the same and have no life at all.

    "LOVE THE STORY BUT THE NARRATOR IS AWFUL!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Time of the Twins to be better than the print version?

    I would say it was better if the narrator was somebody else.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It's a shame that the narrator ruined this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Please re-record with the narrator that did the 4 Chronicle Books.

    "worst narrator ever! i can't even listen to this!"
    Could you see Time of the Twins being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Ax is by far the worst narrator I've heard on here, he is contantly getting names wrong, like pronouncing majere "majure" and palidine "palidin", when he reads dialog there's no change in tone and conversations are most of the time confusing and I often find myself having to constantly rewind and listen to sections again. I can not get into this story as much as I loved the first 3 books because of ax's boring mono tone naration, please, PLEASE, have paul boehmer renarrate these novels as he did a great job with the first 3 books, I won't be purchasing the other two books of this series until you audible gets rid of Ax.

    Story
    "To the Tower of High Sorcery - Begin Your Journey!"

    After the initial Dragonlance series, most readers figured the story of Caramon and Raistlin was finished, said and done.

    We were all taken by surprise and thrilled to discover these three novels that gave us an even stronger reading on the twins future story. Despite the wearisome Ax Norman narration, you will enjoy these at LEAST as good as the first four novels, and will be carried along on a journey of high magic, time travel, broad epic story lines, vast moral decisions impacting the world, and just simply good fantasy listening.

    This first of the three will swallow you up into the Dragonlance realm, and when done, if you don't want more, I will be honestly SHOCKED. This is Weiss and Hickman at their prime.

    Don't pass this series up. I liked it so much, I acquired all three in the series.

    And don't worry, I don't always write glowing reviews. Look at my past reviews, and you'll see some extremely negative reviews. Don't worry, I have a few negative reviews to share soon.

    For now, let's focus on the good stuff. And this, Audible listener, is the good stuff.

    "great book, terrible preformer."

    I love this series, I would avoid this particular preformer though. I.e. pronunciation of main characters changes almost every paragraph. No passion, and feels rushed. this preformer is clearly not a fan of these style of books. he makes the story frustrating to listen to.

    "Great Story - Middling Narration"

    I have been reading Dragonlance books for about 18 years now and this is one of the stronger series. The story told about Caramon, Raistlin, Tas, and Crysania is fantastic while setting the stage for the next two books. The story is nearly flawless and holds up very well over time.

    The narration is done fairly well with two exceptions. The way some names are spoken is painful and is obvious no research was done. The names are also sometimes inconsistent which compounds the problem. Paladine is not said as Paladin. There is one point in the narration where he correctly states the name Paladine but it is only a single time. When he references Sturm Brightblade he says Strum. Little things like that can very negatively affect the flow of the book. He also needs to not yell silently. If he is yelling in exclamation then just do it. H

    "Great Story but poorly performed"
    How could the performance have been better?

    The performer could have used correct pronunciation and used various voices for the different characters.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story is great just poorly performed.

    "Great book very poor reader"

    The narrator clearly is not experienced in the characters or books. Mispronounced many names and had zero character voice range. This is going to be difficult to listen to the other two books.
    wish I could get my money back

    "Great story."

    Great story despite the narrator, who speaks with zero expression or enthusiasm. You would almost think he is reading the dictionary, except that the book itself is wonderful!
