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.

This book featured several characters from previous stories, but focused on some new faces. The most intriguing idea in this book was that the 'extreams', whether good or evil, were not helpful. And how both good and evil will view a nuetral stance as a hinderace and an enemy.

I would have given this book 4 1/2 stars if possible, because there

Un comienzo inusual, que no tiene mucho que ver con lo que nos tenía habituados Elaine en el resto de las novelas de esta saga es el comienzo idóneo para una novela atípica. ¿Por qué es atípica?

There are better books set in the Forgotten Realms than this - some written by Ms Cunningham as well - but there are also some that are far worse.

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..."
