A lot of books tied into a franchise, in this case Dungeons & Dragons, are sneered at as somehow inferior to "real" books. While I have admittedly read many stinkers along these lines, this was not one of them, and it shouldn't be avoided simply because it has the Forgotten Realms logo displayed at the top of the cover. It has a well developed story, with several likable characters, and an interesting premise.

I've owned the paperback edition of this book for several years now, probably since

The God Catcher will Catch You Up!

Erin M. Evans’ debut novel, The God Catcher, a Forgotten Realms—Ed Greenwood presents Waterdeep—story, is a wonderful tale that will catch you up in its magic and take you on a wonderful journey. I think I liked it best because it was a completely character driven experience. The city of Waterdeep is a delightful setting, and the plot is just twisty enough without being confusing, but the characters are what truly bring the tale to life. The plight of a girl wit

Nothing overly remarkable about the story. I can't even remember the character's names, but it was a fun story.

We join a young woman, trying to be a wizard in Waterdeep and failing, living in the decaying structure of a once-sentient guardian statue called the God Catcher. Now the God Catcher does not play much of a roll in this story, except to randomly spout prophecy that isn't really referenced ever again in the book.

Our young wizards runs into a woman who claims to be a dragon trapped in hum
While the Waterdeep series has been entertaining from the start, it has slowly gained momentum with each instalment, and this upward trajectory leads to this excellent novel, Erin M. Evans' first.

I had already read (and enjoyed) her second book, Brimstone Angels, so I expected good things from God Catcher - especially since she was the first author in the series that I actually knew of before reading the omnibuses. As Ed Greenwood says in the introduction, the book only gets more intense and mor

The God Catcher is a very fast-paced and a very enjoyable book. It quickly becomes a page-turner. I haven't read many Forgotten Realms books but this is pretty irrelevant in this stand-alone story.

Evans' style is very pleasant. I liked the dialogs in the book and the characters are well created (except Cassian who didn't materialize for me). The setting is not sophisticated as the story unfolds in the city called Waterdeep, City of Splendors, but the reader is captured by the plot so the lack of

Finally: female characters who are realistic, capable, and not overgrown teenagers obsessed with sex and boyfriends! This is a great book set in the fantasy genre that does a great job both telling a story AND illustrating the complex relationships between friends and family. Thank you Miss Evans! Can't wait for your next one!

I am enjoying Erin's writing style; having a bit of a hard time remembering the characters as they all have fantastical names. Reminding me of a cross between the Harry Potter books and Lord of the Rings.
Excellent read that mixes the elements of a thriller with the tastiness of the Forgotten Realms and Waterdeep. Fun, fun, fun.
Good Story. I really wish it would have ended differently though. Either way, worth the price.
Really liked this one, left my at the end wanting to read more about the main characters.
Well written. Interesting plot.
