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?

Wonderful Story with Great Narration
The best part of DW was the narration. Shawn did a great job of giving every character life and personality.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
