Summary

The war against the dragon minions of Queen Takhisis rages on. Armed with the mysterious, magical dragon orbs and the shining, silver dragonlance, the companions bring hope to the world. But now, in the dawn of a new day, the dark secrets that have long shadowed the hearts of the friends come to the light. Betrayal, treachery, frailty, and weakness will nearly destroy all that they have accomplished.

The greatest battle they have left to fight is within each of them. Yet, in the end, they will be heroes.

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

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.

Classically great book read perfectly!

As good as I remembered, thanks to very fine reading performance. The whole series is great, but the Twin series closes the story out much better than the end here at this book.

Classic Book, Awful Reader

Dragonlance Chronicles are probably my favorite books, but Paul Boehmer is a terrible, terrible narrator.

Not Worth the Following

I have refrained from reading these books for years because I once tried the Dragon Gate Cycle, and even as a child, found them to be poorly written. My issues -

The books are derivative. I know that D&D is derivative, and takes heavily from Tolkien, but W&H go past the point of homage/pastiche. Part of this is that nearly all fantasy in the 80's was a Tolkien clone.

The books feel abridged. It seems clear that these books were much longer, and an editor hacked them up. There are large plot points that are mentioned in past tense in the first sentence of a chapter. The wizard's entire plotline disappears - he's in the tower, and then he appears next to Tiamat a book later.

One point I will concede - there are a few lovable characters. The Kender is a loveable scamp. Fizban is also pretty awesome, though it would have been better had he truly not remembered who or what he was.

I listened to these as a gamer right of passage and was let down.

4.5 Stars

All in all this was a good series, and definitely worthy of it's status as a classic. Being unfamiliar with the D&D world, perhaps I missed out on some things, but I was able to piece together what I could with a little help from a friend. I found the world and stage lacking in the dynamics found in novels by Sanderson or Jordan, but it wasn't a deal breaker. I'd recommend this series to anybody who enjoys fantasy novels.
