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.
The first book in a rerelease of a key trilogy in the Dragonlance saga, this trilogy covers key events that take place between Dragons of Summer Flame and the bestselling War of Souls trilogy.

Great Story!

Best DL story since Chronicles! Excellent, well developed characters and story. A bit of a odd start, but soon became a very engrossing epic! The narrator was pretty good, maybe my second favorite behind Richard Topol. Although, like some other have noted...the dragon and kender voices are a head scratcher. The dragon voices make me think of a constipated and irritable elderly person who has run out of prune juice. The kender...sound like hillbillies...a voice much more suited for gully dwarves. It throws me off when I envision Blister, who is a very likeable character. Other than that...spot on performance by the Josh Clark! Looking forward to the next book!

Finally, a voice for Dragon Lance

Finally a voice that captures the characters of Dragon Lance. I much prefer male narrators trying their hand at female voices than female characters trying to attempt male voices. Josh's voicing of the dragons may be a love it or hate it for most folks. personally, I like it. Some may think it is over-acted. But it reminds me of the voicing of Takhisis from the old Dungeons & Dragons cartoons from the 80s.

My only complaint, again, is the Kender voicing. Why is it so difficult to capture the essence of a Kender? While not as horrible and unforgivanle as the voicing performed on the Lost Chronicles audio books, I never in my wild imagination thought of Kender's as having a Southern redneck dialect. I can't fathom how so many voice actors have missed the mark on the fearless, child-like wonderment and excitement that a kender possesses. Every experience for them is new, exciting and full of adventure and mystery. How a slow, southern accent was chosen here instead of that of an excited child-like exhuberance is beyond me. Like I said, not as bad as the others. But it cost the audio book it's 5th star
