Product Description

“Well, I'm now behind on my own writing, because I couldn't tear myself away from Lesser Evils. Then again, I'm only behind by a single day--because I really couldn't tear myself away from Lesser Evils. If the next one's not out until tomorrow, it's still too far off. And if Evans is not already a name spoken of as part of the true Forgotten Realms pantheon, along with Kemp, Cunningham, and Salvatore, it can only be because she has fewer books out, and thus hasn't reached everyone yet.”— Ari Marmell, author of Agents of Artifice, The Conqueror's Shadow, and the Widdershins Adventure series
Lesser Evils is incredibly immersive and technically brilliant. I love the complex characters and layered plot, and the dialogue is sharp, natural, and brimming with personality. It’s one of those books where you forget about the fact that you're reading a book, and just experience the story as though you were there. Erin M. Evans has a rare talent. She's one to follow for sure.”—Susan J. Morris, author of “Writers Don’t Cry” column on Omnivoracious, an books blog
Lesser Evils will leave you begging for more from Erin M. Evans. Intrigue upon intrigue and a host of unforgettable characters interwoven into a plot that is riddled with heart-stopping action.Who could ask for more!” —Chris A. Jackson, award-winning author of Scimitar Moon
Mere weeks after escaping Neverwinter, Farideh’s dreams are still haunted by Lorcan, the cambion devil whose power fuels her own. One of only four known descendents of the original Brimstone Angel, Farideh has no regrets about the pact she made with the devil. But no one in the Hells knows that she has a twin—an impulsive eager sister, just waiting to be corrupted. At least as long as Lorcan can keep her secret. Determined to protect her sister, Farideh searches for a ritual that could call Lorcan out of the Hells. But in the midst of her hunt, she’s drawn into an assignment for the secret society the Harpers, an assignment which leads her and a ragtag group of allies to an ancient Netherese library deep underground. While the group combs the site, dodging ghosts and magical traps, Farideh discovers a magical book whose pronouncements throw into question everything she thought she knew about herself and her sister. The more the Book gives up its macabre secrets, the more one thing becomes clear—a traitor lurks among them.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Realms novels to come out in years. 3 Jan. 2013
By Rob Ford - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I could write a dissertation on all the things I loved in this book, but I'll settle for a review instead.

Lesser Evils is the sequel to Brimstone Angels: A Forgotten Realms Novel (Neverwinter Nights), and is set about a month after the events in the first book. The story in Lesser Evils follows that of the first book very fluidly, so anyone who hasn't read Brimstone Angels yet (what's wrong with you?) should pick it up before starting this second book. Now, onto the review.

The strongest part of Brimstone Angels was its protagonists, and the same is even truer for Lesser Evils. Every character in this book, old and new, is compelling, well characterized, and most of all, utterly believable. Lesser Evils is a novel that focuses very directly on the relationships between its protagonists, and it works out beautifully. There was never a chapter that didn't serve to draw me deeper into the conflicts and goals of the characters involved.

Let's talk about setting. It's obvious that Erin Evans is someone who gives a damn about the Forgotten Realms. She takes full advantage of the history of the setting to tell a story that seems like it actually matters in the grand scheme of things, while also using minor details to ground the reader to the world in a much more granular and immediate way.

I have a lot more praise I could level at this book, mainly about how awesome Havilar is, or how legitimately scary certain villains are, but instead, I'll just say Lesser Evils is the 50th Forgotten Realms novel I've read, and I can't think of one I've enjoyed more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lesser Evils 11 Dec. 2012
By Ben King - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Erin M Evans has done it again, weaving an immaculate and wondrous tapestry of power-hungry factions, wonderful characters, and compelling villains. She has demonstrated (in three books!) that she has earned the right to be a goddess of Faerun. Her writing and prose is absolutely amazing, weaving together complex characters and rival factions. From the Hells to the Shadovar to a power-mad arcanist, Lesser Evils is a must read for any and all fantasy fans, not just Forgotten Realms fans.

Her next book is The Adversary, taking place in the Sundering event. And, if you can believe it, she is contracted for three more books after The Adversary. AWESOME! The next few years promise to be a joy for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lesser Evils puts Evans with the best of the Realms 7 Dec. 2012
By J. Mace - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Erin M. Evans follows up the wonderful Brimstone Angels with this sequel; it is her best work yet.

Beginning shortly after Brimstone Angels we find Farideh and party in Waterdeep. While in the city Farideh's ability to find entanglements where a multitude of power groups intertwine comes to the for and leads to a search for an ancient Netherese library. With a party composed of individuals with very different goals, most hidden from the others, the developments plot and intercharacter relations are fun and engaging to behold. The climax is entertaining and has a good payoff. Finally, threads of the upcoming Sundering series ,that Ms. Evans' next book is part,appearing in this book.

With this I put Ms. Evans with the best of the Realms authors, I'll impatiently wait her next novel with knowing I can expect tales of the quality that R.A. Salvatore, Elaine Cunningham, and Paul S. Kemp have been known

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book - we need more Evans 11 Dec. 2012
By Todd Pollman - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Frankly, Erin M. Evans needs to get paid. Slide some money her way by purchasing her books. Buy one for yourself and one for a friend. You should do this so she understands that she needs to keep writing more of them. What a great positive feedback loop that could be! Mo money = mo books, *not* mo problems!

I came across Evans original full-length novel The God Catcher: Ed Greenwood Presents Waterdeep a few years ago and couldn't put it down until I had tore through it. I'll admit to not having been exposed to a lot of tie-in fiction since the early Dragonlance/Forgotten Realms days, but this was a breath of fresh air. Evans, frankly, can write well. Once the first Brimstone Angels came out, she quickly came to the top of my list of insta-buys.

Now that the sequel to Brimstone Angels, Lesser Evils, is out, it reaffirms everything I thought about her - a powerful talent who should be encouraged through book sales. Because I want more of them. Lesser Evils picks up fairly quickly where the first novel left off and more of the great characterization that frames an Evans novel is back immediately. Relationships form the core of her stories, and it's no different (and perhaps even better) here. Twin Tiefling sisters. A Devil from the Hells. His scheming sisters. The Harpers. Their old adversaries. The back and forth of relationships makes this book one that you won't want to put down. After a brief stop in Waterdeep, Farideh quickly becomes embroiled in a scheme to hunt down a ancient library. With her are a cast of characters that don't feel like filler for a mission. Everyone has their own motivations and aspirations. Some of them may even be sinister *gasp*. However, as Evans herself has recently said, even the bad guys have a motivation and maybe they think they're being good.

Luckily for fans her next book will also feature Farideh and is also part of The Sundering - a tie-in to the new edition of D&D.

4.0 out of 5 stars characters are hard to let go 8 Jun. 2014
By Shade Tree Mechanic US - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well, this is the third book of the twins that I have read- so yes that does mean I tend to do things out of order. Another improbable situation and another fine mess they've gotten into Stanley! The problems they face are not so difficult to compare against some that have come up in my time : liners, lies, and promises not kept.
What goes so well in this series is the understandable character positions. I don't have a twin sister, and I haven't been to the nine Hells, but the author tells a tale that works so well that I can imagine that I have a glimpse of those and more. Well done Erin!
