The Companions are back in this first volume, which features an untold story from the War of the Lance. The beloved heroes return: Tanis, Raistlin and Caramon, Sturm Brightblade, Tasslehoff, and Flint Fireforge. Old friends, such as Riverwind and Goldmoon and Laurana, travel with them. Old enemies are here too, as the companions encounter new adventures and new dangers in the very beginning months of the War of the Lance.

This book starts with the celebration of a wedding. The companions believe they have slain the evil Dragon Highlord Verminaard. They have rescued the refugees from Pax Tharkas and taken them to a valley in the Kharolis mountains.

After they are attacked by the Dragon Armies, Tanis and Flint are sent to search for the long lost dwarven kingdom of Thorbardin, hoping to persuade the dwarves to give the refugees shelter for winter.

Each of the other companions face their own trials. Raistlin remembers that, according to tales of old, the key to Thorbardin lies in the haunted fortress known as Skullcap. The others want nothing to do with this accursed place, but Raistlin feels strangely drawn to the ruins, and he persuades a reluctant Caramon to accompany him there.

Sturm becomes obsessed with finding the legendary Hammer of Kharas, and his obsession nearly plunges the party into disaster. Riverwind, now chieftain of his tribe, is made the reluctant leader of the refugees and worries that he is not suited for the task. Tika Waylan must decide if she has the courage to undertake a perilous journey to save those she loves from certain death, while Tanis Half-Elven wrestles with his faith in the newly returned gods.

But it is the dwarf, Flint Fireforge, who faces the most crucial test. Download and start listening now!

    " Okay, this wasn't total junk. This was my first Dragonlance book, and although it did keep me awake while I was driving for the first 3 hours, it failed after that and I had to grab a Louis L'Amour book for the remaining 17 hours--it was not gripping. My main complaint was the insulting way it treats race. We are supposed to accept that because one character is a dwarf, certain characteristics are givens, and that if someone else is a kender (sort of like a hobbit with small feet, long ears, and kleptomania) that certain other characteristics are set in stone and impossible to change. The authors are racial determinists and rely far too heavily on racial stereotypes instead of genuine character development. That's fine for a 6-year old who wants to put the world into pigeon holes, but I found it tiring. Which is deadly when you're driving your family in a minivan at 3am. I should note that the 12th CD was missing from the set of 13, and I found that I missed almost nothing. Everything turned out exactly the way I had expected at the end of CD 11, with the exception of a gold dragon showing up. I also must say that the inclusion of a brass dragon in the middle of the story was useless, and that the journey through Skullcap was full of logic problems, such as why a mechanism would be rusty after 300 years but still useable (after that long, anything mechanical that is rusted becomes completely useless, or why torches would still be useful. And it was clearly stated that Teka took Rabbitslayer with her back to camp, but Tass has it with him later in the story. I should have given it 1.5 stars, but since that isn't an option, it gets 2. I might consider reading another Dragonlance book if it is available on CD and I'm going to have a lot of time to kill. But chances are, I will find something much better. "

    " Almost as good as the Chronicles! I would recommend this book (1st in a trilogy) to anyone who was seriously disappointed by the War of Souls Trilogy. (like myself...) "

    " I liked this book, but was disappointed in a few parts. I'm still looking forward to the next one though! "
