      Dragons of Autumn Twilight sets 'em up, and Dragons of Winter Night knocks 'em down. The second volume in Dragonlance's seminal trilogy stokes the action with a big ol' blast of dragon breath. The War of the Lance has begun in earnest, and the Companions--Tanis, Flint, the twins Raistlin and Sturm, Flint Fireforge, Goldmoon, et al.--find themselves separated across Ansalon. Everyone's figured out that Takhisis's dragon minions aren't just scary bedtime stories, and the desperate search for the Dragon Orbs and the mythical Dragonlance is on. Lots of great combat, some humor and romance sprinkled in, and more solid character development for this complex band (especially Tanis and Laurana). An excellent follow-up bookended by cliffhangers--check out Dragons of Spring Dawning to see what happens next.

    Dragons of Winter Night re turns listeners to the mystical world of Krynn, where the memorable band of characters from Dragons of Autumn Twilight continue their fantastical adventures.

    The land has grown even more dangerous, and now the heroes -- Tanis Half-Elven, Sturm Brightblade, Raistlin and Caramon Majere, Flint Fireforge and Tasselhoff Burrfoot -- have been separated. And Raistlin, his strange, hourglass eyes gleaming, has warned, "Farewell, my friends...And a long farewell it will be. Some of us are not destined to meet again in this world." This ominous prediction, along with sinister dreams, will haunt this group of long-time friends as they search for the mysterious dragon orbe and the legendary dragonlance with the hope of stopping the advance of the Dark Queen!

    Here, is a compelling fantasy tale in which the true value of love and friendship is measured against the backdrop of a catastrophic war between good and evil.
