Another Young Dragon. Haven't actually met him but enjoyed his book, short stories, and posts on various websites. Ed's book came out in the same month as mine and got shelved two shelves higher on the "New in Fantasy" section in Barnes & Noble. So Ed was at eye-level, mine was down on the floor. Thought about switching them, but resisted as he really is a good writer and people should see his book :)

A fun read, but not great.
While I was reading this book I was reminded of a series of books by Glen Cook called The Black Company. However, those books were much better....
This book had a lot of potential but never quite did it for me. Not very descriptive at times and the fighting was decent but not great.

Neversfall is the first book in the Citadel series, a set on stand alone novels set in the Forgotten Realms (but does not require any previous knowledge of the Realms). The story begins with two groups of soldiers from different countries coming together to investigate the disappearance of a regiment of soldiers from a shared fortress in the wilderness. Things begin to go wrong even before they arrive at the empty fortress to find no trace of what has happened there. In addition to the determini ...more

This is a different take on the usual fantasy storyline in two ways. First, it takes place in a single small location; second, it's as much a mystery or suspense novel as it is fantasy. This by no means makes it a bad book, as it's a pretty well-written whodunnit. Only when the motives are revealed at the end did I kind of frown as they aren't that plausible. However, the storyline leading up to it is an interesting and quick read.

While the Citadels series are a pretty good read overall, Neversfall is unique amongst the series (and the Forgotten Realms in particular)for its atmosphere. This book actually creeped me out, and that has not happened since I read Richard A Knaks' The Kingdom of Shadow! Definitely the high point in the Citadels series.

I am not writing what the book is about as that can be found on Wikipedia. The story is fast paced in the beginning, but then drags a bit. A good one time read for the fantasy fiction lovers.

I was a bit dissapointed with the finish.

I enjoyed this book and it's characters there were many twists that I thought were cleverly done while giving a story to an area of the realms not often explored.

I hate to say it, but this book just didn't do it for me. There was way too much dialogue, simplified plot, and the twists and turns were more like a ride down the little kids slide.

Chapter Nineteen is spelled incorrectly "Ninteen". (mmp)

Took a little bit to get into, but was a quick read overall, and the story did pick up eventually. Overall, not bad.
