I marked this book with four stars because it is the best one that I've read by this author. The three books in the series before this one (with mostly the same characters) really let me down. Actually, let me restate that; the first one was a big let down, but the following books got progressivly better. I also have to take into account that Niles wrote one of the first Forgotten Realms book series ever, and his were better than Ed Greenwood's hands maybe I should cut him some slack. ...more

Clearly, Douglas Niles' writing has improved, since he wrote his two earlier Forgotten Realms trilogies (the Moonshae trilogy which included the first-ever published Forgotten Realms novel, and the Maztica trilogy). He was not at all bad to start off with, but his descriptive prose, character dialogue, and scene-building seems to have taken off in this new trilogy, which is a direct sequel to the Moonshae trilogy (Darkwalker on Moonshae, Black Wizards, and Darkwell).

This book starts off twenty

Entertaining, which is 90% of my rating, but like all of these Forgotten Realms novels, they tend to the popcorn side of things, especially the characterisations. But a good story is a good story, and that's what this is, all else considered.

Instead of focusing on just one character, this trilogy introduces and holds your attention through many different perspectives. Including some of the more interesting villains!
This did not hold my interest. I made it about 25% of the way through then forgot I was reading it for a week. Pass.

Damn it to hell - I've written two reviews on this series now, saving Book 1 for last. I'll have to read the book again, I just know it. And what a cover! Much better than some others out there. Still, I get this book mixed up with Darkwalker on Moonshae.

I'm not going to write anymore on this series, that's it.

Heading into the second trilogy.
Have to say. Seems to have hit a stride. A lot going on, making you want to keep turning pages.
Yet keeps track, tying up the characters and plot points together.

Enjoying this series of stories.

Some artist is stuck on the woman on the cover, I don't like the image & she keeps showing up in other covers. Dragonlance in particular. Missed first series so it's not really a stand alone & I wonder if it's going to be too much to fathom with no background. ...more
