Disappointed

This book was boring and very difficult to finish. Being written by Margaret Weis, I had high expectations but was quickly let down. I highly doubt I’ll finish the trilogy.

Interesting Storyline

After suffering through Marieve Herington I still hear the wretched echo of mispronounced words. But to my relief it was in my mind.

The narrator did amazing and I felt involved and pulled in by the story and the narration. Since you will need to have read the war of souls before this series, I recommend you take the time to buy the trilogy on paper and read it on your own. But don't be afraid to get this book as an audio book, this narrator makes the book come alive.

This is an amazing series, and you won't be disappointed with this book. And the narrator is fun and entertaining to listen to.

Not good

Too slow and too much history at the start. The ending left hanging didn't seem to finish.

The narrator did a really nice job, but...

I'll be honest. I have the paperbacks of the series, and I only got past the first 10 or so chapters. It reads too much like a romance novel, when it comes from a D&D series focused on gods, dragons and epic battles. There's too much "I love you <insert god here>" and not enough action. The narrator did a nice job. The writing is really meh. But, I'm determined to soldier through, unlike the main female antagonist, who did a 180 from the War of Souls Trilogy. She used to be a stoic, battle-hardened general. Now she spends her time fawning like a high school freshman after a horny, emo god...

bad... just bad

I'm a huge fan of fantasy and like a great deal of forgotten realms. Dragon lance novels get worse as you go down the set. worst one out of the 15 or so I read. I'd have to say all Dragon lance has a few good characters with a poorly constructed world.

Amber and Ashes

I listened to this book to continue the Dragonlance Series following Mina and the Age of Mortals.
