It felt like the build-up and suspense from the first 2 books were squandered. The Shadovar were portrayed to be extremely powerful enemies, yet were very easily defeated by suddenly even more powerful Chosen - too powerful. The climax and the final fight could have been more creative than a "last stand" kind of ending that's been done many many times in fantasy settings.

I liked the book, overall, but the too-fanciful names irritated me. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for unique names, but when I have to really struggle to pronounce them, it's not cool. For example, on one page are the names: Alusair, Galaeron, Everseka, Nihmedu, Shaeradim, phaerimm, Korian Hovanay, and Piergeiron Paladinson. And, if you think they're not so bad, try saying them aloud. Plus, such an extremely large cast of characters makes it hard to keep everyone straight.

Recommends it for: anyone who likes the Forgotten Realms setting
Shelves: fantasy
This story receives 4 stars from me because it is a good Forgotten Realms story. I've rated it on the terms of what a "Forgotten Realms story" entails, which is lots of action in a high fantasy setting on a rather formulaic basis, supporting a roleplaying game world.

In other words: On terms of it being a pulp-like novel how does it work? And this book works quite well, I think.

(More to come...)
