3.0 out of 5 stars Why a sticker? 8 Feb 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Didn't like the sticker on the spine of the book. I thought I had bought a book according to its age, there was no need to add further damage. Three stars and you're lucky. I hope you drop it in the future, or I'll buy no more.

5.0 out of 5 stars against most reviewers' opinion, a great book 7 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As other reviewers have mentioned, this isn't quiet up to the standards of Elaine Cunningham's forgotton realms books, but I don't quiet think it is fair to use extraordinary great books as a standard for comparison for every book. This is a pretty good book- perhaps not a eternal classic, but so few are- and i find it a good read every so often. If you like forgotton realms books, you should immediately buy this. If you don't, than make your own choice. But no one should criticize this novel...

4.0 out of 5 stars A good enjoyable read 14 Nov 2000
By Water Monkey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I don't know what all the fuss is about; Jean Rabe has penned a good Harpers book. There are no earth-shattering revelations and your not going to find any truisms here (which is the case with most fantasy novels).
The characters are constructed fairly well. The villians are truly the most developed characters. I found myself anticipating what would happen to the villians more than I did the heroes. In fact, if this weren't a Harpers book this could have made a nice starting point for a villians series.
To me the story reads like a good translation of a D&D module (unlike "Against the Giants"). The characters are vibrant and colorful.
I enjoyed this book and I most people would also enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE HARPERS vs THE RED WIZARDS! 5 Jun 2004
By L Gontzes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Definitely one of the BEST in the Harpers Series and one of my personal favorites, RED MAGIC sheds light and provides a great insight into the magical world of Thay and the evil Red Wizards that inhabit it! The book is so incredibly well written that the reader feels that they have been transported to another plane of existence and are actually present among the characters, seeing what they see, feeling what they feel, sensing what they sense. Jean Rabe, has truly outdone himself and has presented us with a wonderful piece of literature the likes of which could be compared with JRR Tolkien's work, RA Salvatore's The Dark Elf and Icewind Dale trilogies, and in authors Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman's Dragonlance Chronicles and Legends trilogies. Magic, Heroes, and Villains are all about. In conclusion, it?s what Fantasy reading SHOULD be. A GREAT book indeed and a must read if you love Fantasy and especially if you love the Forgotten Realms! DON'T MISS IT!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent villains 29 Oct 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thought the strongest point of this book was the villains and the treatment of magic. The story was relatively fast-paced, and the villains were complex. I recommend it.
