Shadowkeep was the first Alan Dean Foster book I ever read, back when I was around 9 or 10 years old. It set my expectations for what fantasy novels would be like and was probably the first thing I thought of when I learned about the existence of Dungeons & Dragons. I remember thinking that the nonhuman races were really cool, and that the reptilian race in particular was way more interesting than the usual elves, dwarves, and goblins you always heard about in fantasy stories. I expect the book wouldn't hold up well if I read it again today, since so many other Alan Dean Foster books I've reread have turned out to be dreadful disappointments, but at the time I first read it I was totally nuts over it.
