This has been a really nice surprise. I am a fan of Greendwood and the Realms, but I always tell people to be at least aware that his books have like a thousand characters and I had often read them twice before I get everything that was going on in the story. But perhaps because of the short story format, that is not the case here and I had been enjoying myself inmensely. I reccomend it to every Realms fan, old and new alike!

I'm really not too fond of this author, and this book didn't change my opinion.

A bunch of short stories that I value as glue for the forgotten realms world and the knots in some loose ends. It really only deserves 3 stars if you are super interested in this fantasy world...otherwise, I wouldn't really bother.

This didn't contain as many stunning Ed stories as I wanted. I do love his writing. Maybe I'm spoiled by all his other good books.
