The story continues.

Have loved listening to this. Paul Boehmer did such a good job narrating these books. Can't wait to get to Summer Flame.

Still Good, but narration got weaker

The final book of the Chronicles of Dragon Lance. The Final battles of Good and Evil. It will end here, for good or ill, for at least most of the companions of our D&D tale. The War of the Lance completes. Magic, sneaking, spying, War, interpersonal conflicts, conflicts of morality and of the soul all in this book. It is still a great story even after all these years.

The narration however seemed to weaken. Characters and statements that should have been said with strength almost seem whiny. The narration itself is decent, but it feels as if the narrator did not take the time to consider the situation and the emotions behind the situation and instead just read the book. The characters even didn't have as much distinction between them as they did in the first and second books.

some say this is a book for teens, but it has depth too. love triangles, good vs evil, and complex characters (with exception of Stern)

Enjoyable fantasy...

While not as good as the first two books, this one was solid. Though I did find my mind wandering at certain points.

Narration was solid.

Not like I remember

I read these books years ago and remember really enjoying them. after listening to the entire series it left me wondering why I enjoyed them so much. Just left me without emotion for the characters and their story. Not a personal attack on the narrator, but he made it even more difficult to enjoy. Overall just a big let down.

The narration is terrible.

The narrator mispronounces names. What's worse is he doesn't use the same pronunciation from book to book. And, they're miss pronounced every time. It physically hurt to listen to this butchering of Dragonlance Chronicles and Legends.

Great Storytelling 🌲

I first read the three chronicles at about 11-12 yrs old.
I couldn't put the books down then. So glad to be able to go over them again but in audible format.
I also never knew then what I do now.
There are many more books left to read our listen to in the same series from some great authors.

Heroes of the lance

Another fantastic performance from Paul Boehmer, his reading of this novel brings it to life. In this final book we see our adventurers reach the climate in the battle for Krynn, can our heroes prevent the dark queen from entering into the world of men, to which side will Tanis turn, can Tasslehoff get help from Fizban. A fitting conclusion to a gripping story.

Amazing

The narrator made all the characters come to life. It's been 20 years since I read the books and they are still as good today as they were then
