2.0 out of 5 stars Read it to go on to book 6 ... grit your teeth 2 Aug 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having a series written by a number of authors is always risky but this series has been good throughout (some more so than others). The underlying story has a lot to do with this, which I suppose is down to R.A. Salvatore.
This specific book is very poor. Without giving too much of the plot away, there are a number of events where anyone who has read the preceeding four books would say "hang on ... no it wouldn't happen that way". It could be argued this is because the author is applying new edition D&D rules under the covers (he certainly hints at them often enough) but I don't think so. I'm fairly familiar with the rules and I still can't see how some of what happens, happens. This coupled with the fact there are some truly amazing things happening but they are handled in such a poor way you find it difficult to care.
If the first book in the series was this bad, I wouldn't have bought the rest. Although if you've read this far, it is probably worth reading to the end - I know I will.

1.0 out of 5 stars Annihilated 3 Dec 2005
Having enjoyed all the first four books in this series I could not wait to continue the story in book five. I was very soon to be bitterly disappointed. The writing style completely fails to catch my interest or attention and I found myself having to read bits of the book over again. By a third of the way through I couldn't wait for it to end so I could move on to what I understand is a worthwhile conclusion to the series in book 6.Athans seems to be intent on re-inventing already well established characters which ruins the flow of the story and I struggled to care less what happened to any of them. If this was not towards the end of the series I would not have continued to read this volume or those following. Worst of the six by a mile

The series is in my opinion an achievement, and it should be taking into account that it is very hard to continue writing on characters established by other writers. This haveing been said, Book 5 is still by far the worse of the 6 books, despite the incredible events that do happen in this book. Like other reviewers said, the characters are suddently behaving in unexpected ways. When reading book 6, one can understand why (the team of all writers together I assume) this was felt necessary for the storyline - but Athans does a very poor job in bringing this about. It looks like most characters are suddently devoid of any depth (apart from the one who never had any!)I was also not happy with the actual writing style. In addition, there are two inconsistencies (or at least those I identified) with the previous books, and it felt like the author couldn't be bothered to read all 4 books in detail before completing his.
I was determined to find out what happens it the end, so despite my frustration at points I did finish it and Book 6 rewarded me. Don;t let the reviews stop you from completing the series, it is worth the time to read all books and the conclusion is brilliant.

2.0 out of 5 stars Agonizing 12 Feb 2006
By Rylin
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I finally put this book down. Yes, I managed to finish it, due more to the fact of my unwillingness to quit than any actual desire to see it to the end.
First books in series was good and I enjoyed every one. If this had been the first in the series, i would never have bothered with the subsequent ones.
Hate to say it, but new author Brian S. Pratt who wrote The Unsuspecting Mage does a better job at entertaining the readers. I couldn't put his book down. It's epic fantasy at it's best. Sure, it being his first book it's a little rough, but the story is sound and exciting. If you've been a fan of this series, you might wish to give it a try.
