I was not a fan of the first book. I thought it was really just plunked down and thrown together. But wow did the Salvatores get it together with this book.

This book is still very much a YA book. It's written in first person, the young main character, the themes are all elementry YA and not too in depth. But Geno seems to have grown leaps and bounds in this book.

There was just so much more structure to this book and there was a flow of moments of no action to action instead of a long period of

R.A. Salvatore is one of my favorite fantasy writers. Drizzt Do'Urden is one of my favorite fantasy characters. Geno Salvatore is R.A.'s son and The Shadowmask is his second published fantasy novel. The excitement of the Stone of Tymora series continues in The Shadowmask as Maimum persists in looking for his stolen stone.

From the first page to the last, this book is jam-packed with action and adventure. Geno Salvatore is following in his father's footsteps and is becoming an excellent writer of

Recommends it for: Young fantasy readers
A boy continues his search for the mysterious Stone of Tymora. Along the way he encounters ominous characters and traverses over desert and sea. Written in first person, for young readers.

This story reminds me of the choose your own adventure books I used to read when I was a wee lad. It took me a while to get used to the first person narrative, and even after that, I couldn't get into it much.

I found Maimun's insubordination towards his captain, Deudermont, annoying. Also, I don't see how he i

The Shadowmask is the second book in the Stone of Tymora trilogy by R.A. and Geno Salvatore. The first book is The Stowaway and the third is The Sentinels due out in September 2010.

The Shadowmask begins right were The Stowaway left off finishing the cliff hanger from that book. It also continues the plot of Maimun telling his tale to a pirate who has captured him and through continuing the telling of his tale is keeping him alive. Once Maimun's predicament is resolved at the beginning, he conti

In this second book we're told the continuation of the story began in The Stowaway. This time, Maimun is without his stone and is off to capture it again.

The story is full of characters such as Joen and Captain Deudermont which breathe life into it. Also a return is made by a character thought lost in The Stowaway, which was a pleasant surprise.

While I still had a bit of an issue with the telling of the story in first person (being somewhat corny), it begins to work better in this book. It feel

The Shadowmask is the second in the trilogy co-written by the father-son team of R.A. and Geno Salvatore. Continuing right from where the first story left off, Miamum is treated to big trouble after losing everything that was valuable to him and he wants it back, despite the many powerful and varied beings that also covet the things he once held closely to him. Teaming up with R.A.'s legend Drizzit once again, the duo makes another fast paces story that leaves little to question. Plot, character ...more

Fast-paced and short read.....Geno following into the footsteps of his father as an economical, capable, and yet not outstanding writer. Salvatore books are to me what Burger King is to food. You are not going to get a book that wins any awards, but they leave you filled and satisfied when you are in a pinch. Epic fantasy book fans should obviously seek out the classics by Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, however. A friend of mine speaks highly of George Martin (Game of in the HBO series), ...more

this series is a quick, easy read. reading it as back story for The Pirate King. So story is decent enough.

Shelves: fantasy, ya
I'm usually leery of authors writing with their kids, but this series has been a pleasant surprise. As an added bonus, you can easily see where it fits into Drizzt's own series, so this is a great gateway series to get into those.

A better read and story that the firth part of the trilogy, maybe the partnership or writers worked slightly better. It seems less teeny than the first one, maybe that is just as I've got used to the style and it isn't bothering me as much
