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.

Just couldn't get into this one.

Felt disjointed. And nothing really worked for me. I will not be continuing this series.

Starts Strong but loses steam in the middle

The novel had a very intriguing opening that easily drew me in, and the narrator helped keep things steady, but it became quite boring in the middle, I could hardly keep track of all the characters names. It became interesting again at the end but this was a struggle to get through. Doubt I'll play it again.

Narration in terrible

I hope this guy doesn't have kids he reads to. And I wish these narrators would at least learn some background on what they are reading.. Almost all the names are pronounced wrong. And whoever let him chew gum while recording should be fired...
