Good intro book to a trilogy

I enjoyed the story. unfortunately the narrator lacks skills to provide clear differences between character voices. also pronounced several names incorrectly, after researching names from the authors own pronunciation of the characters. I love the Dragonlance series and the narrator used for the original series was very good.

good story.... sloppy reading

The story is pretty standard for DL but the reader is quite bad. She is the reader for the next book in the series as well...quite unfortunate.

Great Story! Great Narrator

Great start to a new epic saga in the dragon lance world, A must read if you are a fan of the original books by Hickman and Weis. This narrator does a great job with the pronunciation and tone of each character

Absolutely Wonderful! I hope there is more!!

I thought her voices were so on point. Marieve breathed life in to every character she read. Every Narrator has their own pronunciations and I thought she did an absolutely MARVELLOUS job with this series. I have over 20 DL audiobooks and her voice for Tas is by far my favourite. I hope we see another set from her in the future and a wizards hat off to her for the job she did on these three!!! <3 <3 <3

Worst narrator I've heard. Read this one instead.

Would you listen to Dragons of a Fallen Sun again? Why?

No the narration is painful and ruins the book

What did you like best about this story?

Great to see a new story with old favorites.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Marieve Herington?

Anyone anyone at all. She makes me sorry I bought this.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Old friends with new life

Any additional comments?

I can get past the common word mispronouncing, and even the character names which are frequent. It is the character voices that make it simply unbearably awful. The high pitched child like tone of the elven characters make it sound as though military orders or tense conversations are coming from santa's Christmas elf...that has been castrated. It's the first audiobook I wish I hadn't bought...

the narrator constantly mispronounced key names

found this most frustrating, Paul was a better narrator, and did better voice play, and acting.

Great story (so far). Narrator? Not so much...

Would you try another book from Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman and/or Marieve Herington?

Love the story - hate the narration on this one.

Would you be willing to try another one of Marieve Herington’s performances?

No. Her voice is beautiful but she should have listened to at least a little bit of the previous narrations. I think her pronunciation of "Majere" as "Majerry" is going to make me crazy before I finish this book!

Was Dragons of a Fallen Sun worth the listening time?

Haven't finished it yet. The story is intriguing - I just hope I can survive the narrator's mispronounciations.

The story is great, the narration is awful.

The frequent mispronunciation of character names is forgivable, but mispronouncing multiple common words is horrible. I find I am shouting the words at the stereo every time she says them incorrectly. Also, doing Elf voices like Kender voices is terrible. A fierce warrior Elf should not sound like the little people. I find myself wondering whether or not anyone tests these out before releasing them. It would not have taken very long to discover the many errors.

Marvelous continuation of an immense world.

Fantastic book continuing with old favorite characters and introducing new, powerful, and sincere characters. The authors produced another great story with intriguing style and imagination. My only complaint is the performance of the narrator. While she may be capable of reading for other works, this was not one. Her MASSACRE of the pronunciation of many characters is truly distracting. As was her artistic take on many common English words.

Great story horrible narrator.

I found the narrators voice so irritating I can't listen to this. Amazing story, if you can deal with her it's worth it.

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.

Good story marred by odd non-standard pronuncation

What made the experience of listening to Dragons of a Fallen Sun the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed the story - as I have all of Weis and Hickman's previous Dragonlance stories.

What did you like best about this story?

The storytelling, the chance to visit old, well loved, characters

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Learn how to pronounce "glower" (it rhymes with "flower.")

There are a few other fairly common English words that she has cringeworthy non-standard pronunciations, but "glower" is the most common.

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.

I finished up listening to Dragonlance Saga!

I enjoyed the story! But swapping between different narrators caught me off guard. Especially when they pronounce stuff very differently. Narrator was good! But the foundation of Paul narrating was stuck in my head.
