Publisher's Summary

Years have passed since the end of the War of the Lance. The people of Ansalon have rebuilt their lives, their houses, their families. The Companions of the Lance, too, have returned to their homes, raising children and putting the days of their heroic deeds behind them.
But peace on Krynn comes at a price. The forces of darkness are ever vigilant, searching for ways to erode the balance of power and take control. When subtle changes begin to permeate the fragile peace, new lives are drawn into the web of fate woven around all the races. The time has come to pass the sword - or the staff - to the children of the Lance.
They are the Second Generation.
An all-new audiobook edition of a classic Dragonlance novel.
This book of five novellas bridges the gap between the Chronicles and Legends trilogies and Dragons of Summer Flame. While detailing their adventures, The Second Generation also sets up key events and characters in future Dragonlance novels.

Good story

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Second Generation?

When Steel was brought be fore the Tomb of his father.

Which character – as performed by Gabra Zackman – was your favorite?

Steel Brightblade I feel she did very well with.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

I would have given 5 stars all around but it still bothers me that they switched narrators for this series again. the original (Paul Boehmer) was just so good that the other two narrators paled in comparison.

Good performance classic Dragonlance

Would you consider the audio edition of The Second Generation to be better than the print version?

The performing of the stories is quite good. Ms Zackman is certainly a pro who know what she is about. Listening to audiobooks and reading a book are two such different things that I cannot compare them. In my opinion, they are two different ways to enjoy the same medium.

What does Gabra Zackman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It's interesting the way she portrays some of the characters: she gives them voices that fit. I like the way she goes from "narration" mode in descriptions and introductions to "interpretation" mode in dialogues and stream of consciousness.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It got me interested, which is the main objective of an audiobook.

Any additional comments?

In the metatags, I'd add "Dragonlance" to the titles of the book, which in fact is following "Dragons of Spring Dawning" and just before "Dragons of Summer Flame". I'd insert it between those two.
