I didn't like this book as much as the first one, but I still like this series more than anything else I've read by this author.

This book had a lot of the same cool characters from the first book and a few new ones, namely the lord of Eveningstar, Tessaril and Mirt the Moneylender, a lord of Waterdeep.
There is not as much of Elminster, but he is definitely present.

In this book the number one villians are the Zhents. Manshoon is back, Fzoul is back, lots of Beholders, and some backstabbing within

Un pochino meglio del precedente volume, ma la storia continua ad avere gli stessi problemi riscontrati nel primo. Ottime descrizioni dei paesaggi e delle location, ma pessima storia, sostanzialmente gli Zhentarim che mandano gente a caso contro Shandril ed i suoi amici, e combattimenti stile videogioco. Tant'è che il finale sembrava estrapolato direttamente da Diablo, con Shandril che bruciava gente e nemici a destra e a manca. Ma almeno la storia è più coerente e lineare.

Shandril has been born with the gift of spellfire. Spellfire is the most powerful magic that anyone can possess and very few have. Every cult and clan in all of Faerun is after her to get the spellfire. Shandril along with her husband Narm set out to find somewhere safe for her. Along they way they run into the different clans that which to try to take the spellfire away from her. When Shandril looses a close friend in her party. She alone sets out to one of the most powerful dark clans to dest ...more

More of a 2.75 out of 5. It's better than its predecessor, but not by much. Arguably stronger writing, more focus in the storytelling and the narrative doesn't drift as much. None of the characters within escape their cardboard boxes though, and there are too many deus ex machina elements for my liking as Gandalf Elminster saves the day once too often. Still, Ed Greenwood is having fun in the world that Ed Greenwood made and I can relate to his enthusiasm.

All taken, this book is slightly above a

i liked it alot. Its like a cross of the Rings trilogy, and King Arthur stories. If you like medieval fiction, you may like this trilogy. the author was a writer for the D&D games.

A step up from "Spellfire" but it's a small step. Once again it's a simple story told in a very predictable way. Some of the dialog is quite amusing and at times rather touching but most falls flat and is overdone. I find myself far more interested in the background characters then the dull as dirt main character.
I found this book in the road in front of my house. I read it but I don't remember whether it was any good.
