I just finished the book Corsair by Richard Baker. This book is a sequel to the book Swordmage, and starts off a couple of months after the first book’s ending. Hulburg is still recovering from the orcs and undead that recently attacked it, and Gerans cousin, Sergen, has fled. Pirate attacks along the coast have been getting worse and worse, and are only attacking ships to and from Hulburg. Geran is on his way home from another city, when he finds two pirate ships on the shore with a captive. H ...more

What happens when your past comes back to haunt you? When that past takes the form of a vengeful, powerful wizard it can only spell disaster, for Geran Humaster and the City of Hulburg.

Pirates are disrupting the trade routes of the Moonsea, and the Merchant council is putting pressure on the Harmarch (city ruler, mayor,) to do something about it. The Harmarch allows Geran, his nephew, to out fit a ship and chase after them.

The Pirates are just a distraction, however to get Geran, the swordmage,
This was the second book in a series I started several years ago. It took me a little bit to remember all the characters, and the plot to this point, but the book allows you to easily pick it up. The plot was pretty good. It starts out a little slow, and slowly picks up steam. The last portion of the book is the very best I thought. Its set out at sea, and seems like a very mundane story as the characters are just sailing along as usual. Like I said, it does slowly pick up momentum and really do ...more

Great 2nd book of the series. Was pretty cool to see Spelljammer of a sort come back into the books. The main characters of Geran and his halfling partner Hamil make a great pair of heroes. Sarth is also back, and the teifling brings with him wizard spells. Now if you haven't read the first book, I recommend to go read Swordmage first. The author brings back an old foe of Geran's, but with his appearance in the very beginning of the first book it really isn't a surprise. With the ending I can't ...more
For the trilogy: 3 books of good oldfashioned swords'n'sorcery. I was in the mood for some easy reading and this scratched the itch. These won't strain your brain, but have some good action with magic and battles and such. The plots are somewhat predictable, but the author manages to keep it interesting. A decent read if you're in that mood, but will not read again.
I enjoyed this book. I thought it was well written for a Wizards of the Coast book. Because I am a fan of the world it was interesting for me to see a little more of it come alive, and I thought the seafaring information was interesting, although I am not an expert on the subject, so who knows how correct it is...

I read this because I read the first book in the series and I have a difficult time not finishing a series once I've started (even if the series is mad boring). Eventually, I will have to read the third book in the series. . .
It was a step up from the first book, which gives me hope for the next, but still very one dimensional. It wasn't as predictable as the first, so I will check out the third book. Fingers crossed
Prolly worth 3.5 stars, but just not quite good enough. Better than the first, a little less predictable. But still missing that intangible to make it memorable.
Christopher Taylor
Good sword and sorcery read. Book 2 in the series. As one of the other commenters wrote it scratched the itch, once the sailing starts the adventure truly grabs you.
Good story, in particular the way he incorporated Spelljammer ideas and how he truly gets one to hate the antagonists. A good second part for the trilogy.
More fluffy tripe. Again, not bad, for what it is...
David Tanner
Better than the first book in the series.
