it was ok

I have not read many books by R.A Salvatore but fantasy shelves are full for his series. I had a friend recommend this set to me because Salvatore is not under the thumb of Forgotten Realms. I did not mind this book but I have read better fantasy. The story was predictable and the characters were fairly stereotypical. It was enjoyable but largely unsurprising. I did get annoyed with the naming system of both characters and places it seems that Mr. Salvatore believes something does not sound like a fantasy name unless it is a normal name with an extra syllable, or two names strung together or several non sense syllables put together in weird ways. I spent most of the book abbreviating the names just so I could get through the pages. In the end the book was alright - I would not go and buy the others but if they come into my possession I would read them.
