Darkvision by Bruce R. Cordell- This is the third book in a stand-alone series called The Wizards. The first book is Blackstaff by Steven E. Schend, the second is Bloodwalk by James P. Davis, and the final book is Frostfell by Mark Sehestedt. With this series, each book is a separate entity and can be read out-of-order. The only theme to mention is that each novel revolves around wizards and magic. Darkvision is set in the Forgotten Realms universe of the role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons. ...more

I had only read one earlier novel by Bruce Cordell. That was Lady of Poison, which I didn't really enjoy.
So it was with some doubts that I started on Darkvision. The novel involves Ususi, a character that plays a (very) minor role in a plot line I was working on. To my surprise, I actually did like this novel.

The characters in the novel are worth caring for, and the story is engaging even if the adversary is (again) an unfathomable entity with no clear motivation except utter destruction. In oth
This book polarizes people. Some people I know, I’ve heard that they like this book. Some people I know, I’ve heard that they don’t like this book. I’ve heard one person say they liked the characters very much, and another who said they disliked the characters a great deal. I’ve heard people applaud the plotline, and others condemn it. In the end, the book polarized me, too, because I liked certain aspects of it a great deal, and others, I disliked a great deal.

The first thing, right off the bat

Darkvision, by Bruce Cordell, is a book in the Forgotten Realms setting and part of the Wizards anthology series. It's a stand alone novel that has a main character of a wizard, which is the only connection to the rest in this series, which is a good thing. Like many of the other anthology series set in the Realms, many of the entries are hit or miss, but I was happy to find out that Darkvision was a strong hit. For those who don't know, Bruce Cordell is one of the long term game designers for D ...more

This was the second time I tried to read this book, and perhaps because I was on vacation with little to distract me, I finished it this time. It was okay, although I was disappointed that the world and people of Ususi weren't clearly described, especially since they seem to play an important part in the newly redefined Forgotten Realms series. I was also surprised that there was no explanation for how Ususi becomes queen - will the people really buy that she saved them if no one but Iahn witnes ...more
It was your classic fantasy adventure novel. A group of adventurers go off to challenge, and hopefully defeat, the big bad that threatens to control and destroy the world. There were times I felt like I was in the middle of a computer game, which was no surprise as this entertaining novel was penned by Bruce R. Cordell, a game designer known for adventure games.

It's not a great piece of literature, but it was fairly well-written by someone who actually has a grasp of the English language.
