Publisher's Summary

The Summer of Chaos has ended. Ansalon’s nightmare has only just begun.

The gods have departed the world, heralding a new Age of Mortals. But before the dust of war can settle, vast shadows cover the land. Dragons have come to Ansalon, larger and more powerful than any ever seen, and they will wreak havoc on nations still trembling from war. As the lands themselves begin to change under the dire magic of the new dragon overlords, new heroes arise to lead the fight for freedom.

Good.

This is a fun listen and you can tell Jean Rabe put a lot of enthusiasm into bringing in the new age. However there are a few flaws. Too much creative freedom was given to the author with major characters. (Some retcons actually have to and do happening there next book as they would messed with War of Souls).

Much like it's predecessor

Much like the previous book, there are a few inaccuracies and some clunky dialogue, but all in all it's a wonderful story and I highly recommend it. I would add, though, that the narrator really annoys me. A lot of his voices are so good, but Malys sounding like a moaning of woman and the kender having southern accents drives me nuts!

Shallow and inaccurate

Performance was still lack luster at best. Lots of mispronounciations. And Rabe still can't grasp the world of krynn

The great old tales

The dragonlance books are well written and draw wonderful images in your mind. We need more of these tales.

Decent Story and Performance

This was very much like listening to a very well written Dragonlance campaign. There were times that Josh Clark's dragon voices were a bit over the top, but he brought depth to the characters. I give this book a solid A-

Great trilogy

This is a great story to bridge summer flame to the war of souls major events. Good to see lots of new characters and features Palen Majere prominantly so for big fans of the character like me it's a great treat.
