There the gifted and talented but tormented boy comes to see magic as his salvation. Mages in the magical Tower of High Sorcery watch him in secret, for they see shadows darkening over Raistlin even as the same shadows lengthen over all Ansalon.

Fantastic story

Any additional comments?

This was a fantastic story and was the first Dragonlance novel I have ever read/listened to. I was drawn to Raistlin's character, and now I am very interested in reading further Dragonlance novels that feature Raistlin to see where his story goes from here.

There are many fantastic characters in this book. The twins, Raistlin and Caramon, are very interesting dichotomies of each other, and I found myself liking both characters. I also loved the Kender race, and the Kender nature makes me smile; the rambling, cheery tales and behavior by a Kender in this story have made me laugh out loud,serving as comedic relief.

The performance was excellent, and I listened with ferocity, breezing through the entire novel in just a few days.

I remember reading this story in a few hours as a young teenager. Now approaching middle age I've gotten to enjoy it all over again!

The narration was excellent.

Bit slow

Quite a good listen if you can get past how twee it is. I loved the Dragonlance books as a teenager so thought I'd give this a go. I'm glad I did and will listen to the next in the series but it's not without its faults... Caramon speaks like a 6 year old even when he becomes an adult and he's portrayed as if he's retarded all through the book. I remember really liking the character so I'm surprised at how he's been written here. He can't even make a cup of tea without spilling water all over the floor!
The story is okay although not a lot happens for long sections. All in though, I liked it!
