Summary

The people of Krynn have known war in past ages. Some are still alive who remember the triumph of good at the conclusion of the War of the Lance. Still more remember the devastation of the Chaos War, which ended the Fourth Age of the world.
But now a new war is about to begin, more terrible than any have known. This war is one for the very heart and soul of the world itself.

Really bad

I buy these audiobooks for my mother who is blind, She has listened to the first three Dragonlance Chronicles books and the Legends Triology and she enjoyed them immensely. She was looking forward to the next series. Unfortunately she was unable to supply an accurate rating for the story since she was only able to listen to the first section of this book before giving up due to the dreary, unending drone of the narrators voice which was unbearably irritating. I will certainly not be downloading any more books narrated by Marieve Herington.

Disappointing

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I was disappointed in the narrative. I like Margaret Weiss and have read and listened to several of her other titles, but this story has too much historical background woven into the story. It detracts and makes it confusing.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

This book was one of the very few I have not been able to finish. I would return it to get my credit back if I could.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Marieve Herington has the wrong voice for reading this kind of narrative. A children's book perhaps but not this.
Also there is absolutely no flow to her reading. It is a monotonous stacato drone that is so irritating that I cannot listen for more than 15 minutes at a time without irritation. This takes away all possibility of involvement and enjoyment of the story.

Any additional comments?

I will be removing the other titles in this series from my wish list.

Well written, well read

What did you love best about Dragons of a Fallen Sun?

There's something different in this new trilogy from the "classical" ones, the Chronicles and the Legends. The authors evidently decided that something different must be done to revitalize the brand. Herington's performance is very good, even though her portrayal of some of the elves is slightly comical (Samar for instance).

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favourite character is, and always will be, Laurana. Since the first trilogy, she stands apart because she grows as a person in a "believable" way. From elfmaiden to general and first class politician,

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

Too long. But the performer's reading was just about right, It is a pleasure to listen to.

Any additional comments?

I'll certainly buy the other two titles in the series. Eagerly anticipating Ax Norman's new versions of the Chrinicles. I'm sure he's done an excellent job.

love the narriators voice, it's angelic.

Where does Dragons of a Fallen Sun rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The story is all one expects from Weiss and Hickman. However the narrator though gifted with an angelic voice lacks the knowledge to pronounce words like Thorbardin. It will make some cringe as I have witnessed. Also she lacks the vocal range needed to keep characters straight in one's mind. Just be ready.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dragons of a Fallen Sun?

When the source of the loss of magic begins to reveal itself.

How could the performance have been better?

The narriation should have been performed by both a man and a woman or at least by somone with more vocal range.

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

Yes, but narration stopped me at times.

Any additional comments?

It's worth hearing. Worth the money especially if you are already a Dragon Lance fan.
