Product Description

R.A. Salvatore's The Cleric Quintet tells the tale of the scholar-priest Cadderly, who is plucked from the halls of the Edificant Library to fulfill a heroic quest across the land of Faerûn.

Cadderly leads the combined forces of Carradoon and Shilmista against Castle Trinity, stronghold of his enemy Aballister. But another mission calls him on a journey leading into a past he hoped he would be able to forget.

4.0 out of 5 stars Marching on Castle Trinity 15 Sep 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Winter has come to the Snowflake Mountains but there is no rest for Cadderly as the powerful young priest has decided it is time to put an end to the treat of Castle Trinity. Before he can do this however, he and his friends must brave treacherous weather and dangerous mountains while dogged by enemy forces. Cadderly also has another task to complete in the mountains, one that could kill him before he gets anywhere near Castle Trinity.

Although this fourth book in the Cleric Quintet series isn't quite as good as the previous book in the series it is still very entertaining and well worth reading. The book is pretty much made up of two parts with the first half of the book detailing Cadderly's journey through the Snowflake Mountains and his attempt to destroy the Ghearufu, while the second half details his and his friends attack on Castle Trinity. It is probably this that is the main problem with the story as the tying up of loose ends from the previous book takes a little too much time for my liking but once the story gets to Castle Trinity things do pick up nicely.

The book is generally as entertaining to read as any other book by R. A. Salvatore and the character development for Cadderly remains good with his coming to terms with his new powers and what he has to do written very well. The wizard Dorigen is also nicely written and is a far more interesting character than her master Alallister.

Overall this was an entertaining book but it could have been a lot better if it had been more focused and therefore I will give it a low four star mark.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed the series 11 May 2014

Its a fun read throughout. It's worth reading the whole series. I did find that the depth of detail on all the fight scenes were really not necessary, so I started skipping to read through them.

Salvatore never disappoints. Accept when ending the Drizzt saga. This one kept me glued to it waiting to se what next turn would happen.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, Kindle edition lacking features? 31 Dec 2013
By Jason A. Leonard - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The less this focused on Ghost (a somewhat tame and unimpressive villian from Book 3), the better it got.

Anyway, this review has more to do with the quality of the Kindle Edition. I presume this will apply to all WotC releases, but reserve judgment there until I check out some of my other WotC Kindle books.

In general, the fonts and readability of the Kindle Edition are fine. The graphics are great. The inclusion of the introductions and dedications is somewhat nostalgic too.

However, I was slightly disappointed to see there was no ToC. Granted, most people just read these books straight thought, but it's not a difficult thing to add and I still like to remember my book has Chapters (not just because some page tells me, but because there is some kind of table also).

More than that, however, was I noticed the book does not track "pages" like some Kindle books do. It only stores location entries. That's never been helpful for me when I want to know how much longer the current chapter is. (in case you're not aware, a book can have thousands of "locations" / paragraphs). I would think since the original books were print books, you could put in page breaks to match the print copy and have some idea of where you are. Or be able to switch easily between print and Kindle. Of course, I know that's more practical for research and scholarly books, but I've just gotten used to expecting these things.

Salvatore's Cleric Quintet continues to provide good reads that compel you to keep going, to keep reading. This is my third time reading the series and it will not be the last!

This journey will bring Cadderly face to face with the foes who have tried time after time to destroy him and all that he holds dear. Along the way he will face a dragon, wizards, imps, and foes that were more powerful than he could imagine. Before it is over he will learn what we have known since the first book. The wizard who has orchestrated all of this is none other than Alibaster Bonaduce, Cadderly's father. How will Cadderly defeat this foe and bring down his evil throne? Read and find out.
