This book is a part of the Forgotten Realms series and the first one that R. A. Salvatore wrote for this series. And thus it isn't his best.

The style is still rather rough. Often, he takes shortcuts instead of describing scenes or battles in rich details. The characters are very likable, that's true, but you still feel that they would need some fleshing out. They seem very two-dimensional. This book was written for RPG players and it reads like a description of an advanture, it doesn't really pull you in. Their emotions are described, they are not felt. Though the story itself is rather interesting.

A good book but I read it once and that was enough for me.
