As always, I enjoyed Elaine Cunningham's writing and characters, but the book suffers because it builds up to events that are simply dropped by WotC and never come about.

The last (printed) book in the Harpers series. At least they left on a high note. Enjoyed it. The paladins in it were described well. Best line in the book "Proves you can have too much of a good thing..."
