The Crimson Gold (Forgotten Realms: The Rogues, #3)
3.44
I would've given it 2 stars if it wasn't D&D. As a D&D book, it's bad. This isn't the first book the author has written for D&D so it's no ...more

Venom's Taste (House of Serpents #1)

Spellfire

I read this way before it was made into a trilogy (either that or I didn't even notice it was a trilogy). It's a disappointment of a book. It felt mor ...more
