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.

Dragons of the Dwarven Depths (Unabridged)

This is a GREAT BOOK. Weis and Hickman have done it again. I didn't want to stop listening. I just have one Question, Why hasn't Hollywood Picked up the Companions. I've read all of the Compainons books from the Meeting to The Drangon Lance Wars. They just keep getting better!!!!!!!!!

Book was good, narration was horrible

I started reading the dragonlance series when I was in high school and I have really enjoyed all of the books. I have read this book before I was looking forward to listening to the audio version; however, the narration was horrible. At times I felt like I was listening to my daughters preschool teacher try to read the book with different voices. I have never stopped listening to a book simply because of the narrator, but this was the first. The voices were horrible and very annoying. I will not listen to anything with this narrator again.
