Publisher's Summary

The Companions are back in this first volume, which features an untold story from the War of the Lance. The beloved heroes return: Tanis, Raistlin and Caramon, Sturm Brightblade, Tasslehoff, and Flint Fireforge. Old friends, such as Riverwind and Goldmoon and Laurana, travel with them. Old enemies are here too, as the companions encounter new adventures and new dangers in the very beginning months of the War of the Lance.This book starts with the celebration of a wedding. The companions believe they have slain the evil Dragon Highlord Verminaard. They have rescued the refugees from Pax Tharkas and taken them to a valley in the Kharolis mountains.After they are attacked by the Dragon Armies, Tanis and Flint are sent to search for the long lost dwarven kingdom of Thorbardin, hoping to persuade the dwarves to give the refugees shelter for winter.Each of the other companions face their own trials. Raistlin remembers that, according to tales of old, the key to Thorbardin lies in the haunted fortress known as Skullcap. The others want nothing to do with this accursed place, but Raistlin feels strangely drawn to the ruins, and he persuades a reluctant Caramon to accompany him there.Sturm becomes obsessed with finding the legendary Hammer of Kharas, and his obsession nearly plunges the party into disaster. Riverwind, now chieftain of his tribe, is made the reluctant leader of the refugees and worries that he is not suited for the task. Tika Waylan must decide if she has the courage to undertake a perilous journey to save those she loves from certain death, while Tanis Half-Elven wrestles with his faith in the newly returned gods.But it is the dwarf, Flint Fireforge, who faces the most crucial test.

weird reading

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I think the story is good, but the reading, especially Tasslehoff's voice is very strange. His voice is supposed to be high, and quick, the reader makes him sound like a sick frog.

I just love these characters!

So great to be able to enjoy the lives of Tanis & co. again. So great a modern fantasy book with some strong female characters, all the characters with depth. Narrator did a good job--it took a bit to get used to Tas' voice, but after a while, I felt the narrator's interpretation really was on mark. She did a good job making the characters' voices sound different, the voices matched the personalities of the characters well and I could tell who was talking just by voice along. I wish they would put the DragonLance Chronicles into Audiobook form, maybe someday...
