4.0 out of 5 stars Very, very good book....but. 20 Nov 2012
By Andrew
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book Archwizard is a really good sequel to Falconfar. It has more exposition telling you more of the lore behind the story with some twists and turns on the way. Only gripes I have with it is the ending to this book as unlike Falconfar it ends in more of a way to set up the sequel, subsequently forcing you to buy the next book. Don't make no mistake however, you won't be wasting your money buying this book. It is filled with a good plot interesting storylines with an overarching storyline which helps to sweeten the book even more.

By Detra Fitch TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
Rod Everlar, successful author of fantasy novels, never knew the fantasy world of Falconfar was real until the night Taeauna fell out of his dreams. Taeauna is one of the few Aumrarr left. They are a race of winged warrior women that once numbered in the hundreds or thousands. Taeauna had lost her wings in battle just prior to meeting Rod. The fantasy writer now dwells in Falconfar. He wants nothing to do with magic, though all call him a wizard. All Rod wants is to rescue Taeauna who was kidnapped by the wizard calling himself Malraun the Matchless.

Malraun has bespelled Taeauna's mind. She is now his bodyguard and minion. Malraun and Narmakoun scheme to kill each other and rule Falconfar. Soon Raurklor, hold of Ironthorn, will become the most important battleground of all.

Narmakoun, Doom of Galath, is a ruthless and manipulative wizard. With his dead female minions and the greatfangs he breeds, Narmakoun seeks the magic of Lorontar, the true Archwizard of Falconfar. Most believe Lorontar to be long dead. Narmakoun believes otherwise.

**** The first few pages tell "The Story Thus Far". This will refresh readers' minds of the events from the previous book (Dark Lord) and picks up where the cliff hanger ending left off. There is no single character the story follows. The cast of characters is large. (Named characters are listed in the back of the book with references as to their role in the saga.) I found the story to be wonderful, as all books I have ever read from this author are. Lots of scheming people, magic, and another cliff hanger ending (of course). Well worth your time and money; however, I suggest waiting until the third Falconfar title is released before beginning to read them. That way the ending of each will not be so disappointing. All-in-all, a brilliant saga! ****

2.0 out of 5 stars Not up to the usual standard... 24 Jun 2011
Format:Hardcover
I had read the first book in the Falconfar saga and it was a pretty good read. However I have not finished this one and don't really plan to, which is generally unheard of for me. To begin with it was pretty good and followed the same standard as the first one. But towards the end of the book I was getting bored of the characters, especially the main one (reviewing this a while after putting it down so I cannot remember his name!); and just not interested in what was going to happen to him.

I will not be buying the third book in the series.

It's a shame as I am a big fan of Ed Greenwood's work generally.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hoping this whiny hero steps up his game!! 22 July 2010
By John Cunninghan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The most glaring thing about this series so far is the fact that the main character, Rod Everlar (probably an anagram for something) is THE WHINIEST "hero" I've read since the Thomas Covenant books. He spends TWO books whining about how he's just a misplaced writer, pity poor me, yadda yadda. The difference is that at least Rod *accepts* he's in a strange new world -- but that hardly changes his behavior. I was expecting that, after the end of the first book "Dark Lord" Rod would be toughed up, possibly even a little nuts. See, Rod is betrayed, captured by a Doom and then tortured for a prolonged period by the evil Doom who dissects bits of Rod to see what will grow back. Nope. In Arch Wizard he's back to his whiny self (puking when he sees people killed) -- say, dude, didn't you spend an indeterminate amount of time being TORTURED in horrible ways after your lady love was stolen by yet another Doom?? Haven't you decided to get serious about this magic stuff you keep being baffled by?

Sheesh! Lots of other side plots, hard to keep interest the way Greenwood bounced back and forth between about 5-6 other character groupings. I hope in book three (which I may buy used this time) our whiny wizard steps it up and gets his butt into gear!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of magic and swordplay and daring do 15 Aug 2013
By Kurt A. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In this sequel to Dark Lord, we return to the world of Falconfar, to find the Dooms of Falconfar locked in a life-and-death struggle. There are plots within plots, and as the Dooms struggle, they are tearing the world apart. And Rod Everlar, the erstwhile fantasy author, he still traverses Falconfar in his quest to find Taeauna, the wingless Aumrarr with whom he has fallen in love. Rod Everlar is determined to rescue Taeauna...if he can stay alive long enough to do it!

Overall, I must say that I enjoyed this book as much as I did the Dark Lord. I like the world of Falconfar, and I liked the nonstop action of the story that moves from crisis to crisis with virtually no letup. Just like in the first book, the sexuality of the story is disturbing and unnecessary - not interesting in an erotic way, and frankly off-putting. Also, another problem with this book is that, being the second book in a series, it has no real beginning and no real end. Some authors succeed in making each book in a series a complete stand-alone story, but sadly Mr. Greenwood did not do that with Arch Wizard.

But, nonetheless, I had a lot of fun with this book, and can't wait to get on to the third (and final?) book of the series. I like a fantasy story with lots of magic and swordplay and daring do, and I got plenty of each with this book. Not everyone likes this story, but I know that I do!
2.0 out of 5 stars Terribly written 7 April 2014
By Jeffelt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Somehow I got hooked on the first book...maybe I was bored...it was so long ago...but I finally decided to finish off the trilogy. This book is all over the place...no consistent plot line...too many different plots going in different directions...hard to imagine when they will converge. The characters are terribly developed. The dialogue is juvenile. The protagonist does nothing to inspire endearment...he's just a dork...and he's only in about 1/4 of the story...probably would be better if he was killed. I'm half way through the book & thinking of tossing it.
