The more I read Cunningham, the more I like her. She has a great way of adding her own twist to the "Forgotten Realms" world, and really making it her own.

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. They did the same thing to her with both Evermeet and the next Song and Shadows book. Screw it! That isn't Elaine's fault! Im giving it 5 stars.

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..."
