I am a cheap date.

I consume an awful lot of cheap fantasy, sci fi, and horror. An author doesn't have to shake my world, bring me flowers, or pay for dinner. I'll take their books to my bed for the price of a mildly engaging plot, a cardboard villain, some stock heroics, and when I reach the unsurprising climax, I'll say "thank you." Literarily, I have round heels.

I'm not saying I have no standards, but my standards are appropriate to the context. If you're trying to write high literary fiction,...more

I'm a stubborn and dedicated reader. I've only put down one other book that I refuse to finish. In both cases the books are about characters I care absolutely nothing about. And worst of all, they are boring.

I tried hard to get into this one. I'm usually a fan of Forgotten Realms books. And I always know going in that the writing is going to be so-so, the character development will most likely be forced, and the love story will feel as authen...more
As far as the first 4 Harpers books are concerned, I think I enjoyed this book almost as much as Elfshadow. The Plot was gripping and I could feel for Myrmeen and her quest to find her lost daughter. Some parts were jumbled a bit, but overall an engrossing read.

Not my favorite Harper's book by far.
Well, it was not what I expected, but none the less good. I've read other forgotten realms books by this author writen under a pseudonym. This one was much better, though swamped with cliches and overdone wordage I still really liked the ideas in this story. It was very Clive Barker-ish, dark and creepy and full of the stuff of nightmars. If your a fan of the realms, deffinitely worth reading.
I really enjoyed it, aside from the woman that turned into a spider. Looking forward to reading more about the Harpers.
This is the first Forgotten Realms book I ever read and I haven't looked back. Damn good book.

The story is hard to follow at times and full of gaps. I was definitely unimpressed.
