I generally like David Cook's FR novels a good deal more than I did this one.

This one came across as rather ODTAA, which is not particularly a flaw in this type of sword-n-sorcery outing...but the event-driven plot here left little room for character development. That's problematic because the events themselves were the most prosaic type of kill-the-monster, get-the-treasure adventure fare. There's no tie-in to the broad and interesting geopolitics of the Forgotten Realms, so you're left at the

So this is the third book I've read by Cook. I will say that this one is better than "King Pinch" and on par with "Horselord". Not the greatest author, but the stories are decent.

I was pretty intrigued at first, but the plot quickly desolved into one heart wrentching mistake after another as the main character tries to do things that are way to difficult for her. Don't get me wrong, I like it when heros are challanged, and I even like it when they doubt themselves. But this got old. Also, he kil

Went back and re-read this book as an experiment. Didn't remember anything about it, or most of the Harpers series, other than I generally enjoyed them. Wanted to see if the writing was any good, now that I'm grown up. The verdict: hit and miss.

I picked this book to re-read because it has a cool cover. Didn't get much out of it the second time through. 2 stars "Just OK". Had a memorable fight against a group of gnolls early on, then not a lot happened. There was some dubious shamanic magic, and

If you like fantasy, especially fantasy set in cold environments, this novel just might be for you (but good luck tracking down a copy)! Martine of Sembia and Krote Word-Maker are both wonderful characters, and they both grow a lot as they learn to put aside their mutual animosities and work together. I definitely wish there were more stories written about them. All in all, this book was a pretty fun read.

Ehh, not terribly horrible, but not particularly good either.
