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...more

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.
really didnt like this book very much, characters were weak, story wasnt well written and very hard to follow
I didn't enjoy this book near as much as I enjoyed Spellfire.
