Publisher's Summary

The people of Krynn have known war in past ages. Some are still alive who remember the triumph of good at the conclusion of the War of the Lance. Still more remember the devastation of the Chaos War, which ended the Fourth Age of the world.
But now a new war is about to begin, more terrible than any have known. This war is one for the very heart and soul of the world itself.

Worst narrator I've heard. Read this one instead.

Would you listen to Dragons of a Fallen Sun again? Why?

No the narration is painful and ruins the book

What did you like best about this story?

Great to see a new story with old favorites.

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

Anyone anyone at all. She makes me sorry I bought this.

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

Old friends with new life

Any additional comments?

I can get past the common word mispronouncing, and even the character names which are frequent. It is the character voices that make it simply unbearably awful. The high pitched child like tone of the elven characters make it sound as though military orders or tense conversations are coming from santa's Christmas elf...that has been castrated. It's the first audiobook I wish I hadn't bought...

Good story marred by odd non-standard pronuncation

What made the experience of listening to Dragons of a Fallen Sun the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed the story - as I have all of Weis and Hickman's previous Dragonlance stories.

What did you like best about this story?

The storytelling, the chance to visit old, well loved, characters

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Learn how to pronounce "glower" (it rhymes with "flower.")

There are a few other fairly common English words that she has cringeworthy non-standard pronunciations, but "glower" is the most common.

Really bad

I buy these audiobooks for my mother who is blind, She has listened to the first three Dragonlance Chronicles books and the Legends Triology and she enjoyed them immensely. She was looking forward to the next series. Unfortunately she was unable to supply an accurate rating for the story since she was only able to listen to the first section of this book before giving up due to the dreary, unending drone of the narrators voice which was unbearably irritating. I will certainly not be downloading any more books narrated by Marieve Herington.

Disappointing

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I was disappointed in the narrative. I like Margaret Weiss and have read and listened to several of her other titles, but this story has too much historical background woven into the story. It detracts and makes it confusing.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

This book was one of the very few I have not been able to finish. I would return it to get my credit back if I could.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Marieve Herington has the wrong voice for reading this kind of narrative. A children's book perhaps but not this.
Also there is absolutely no flow to her reading. It is a monotonous stacato drone that is so irritating that I cannot listen for more than 15 minutes at a time without irritation. This takes away all possibility of involvement and enjoyment of the story.

Any additional comments?

I will be removing the other titles in this series from my wish list.
