Lifelong friends, they went their separate ways. Now they are together again, though each holds secrets from the others in his heart. They speak of a world shadowed with rumors of war. They speak of tales of strange monsters, creatures of myth, creatures of legend. They do not speak of their secrets. Not then. Not until a chance encounter with a beautiful, sorrowful woman, who bears a magical crystal staff, draws the companions deeper into the shadows, forever changing their lives and shaping the fate of the world.
No one expected them to be heroes.
Least of all, them.

Great story but there are issues with narration
I would certainly try another book written by Margaret Weis and/or Tracy Hickman.
This book is basically a Dungeons & Dragons adventure turned into a novel. Imagine the best D&D game you've had, but written down as a novel.
Probably not. I have a problem with his delivery. His intonation and pacing is often wrong. My main issue is the way he reads the comma after dialogue as a full stop.
e.g. "Take hold of the staff!", Raistlin said.
is read by the narrator as:
"Take hold of the staff!". Raistlin said.
He intones upwards instead of down in these situations , after too great a pause and it grates on me somewhat.
It would make a very good TV series.
Its a shame Michael Kramer didn't get the job of reading this story.
