Book Description

25 Sep 2007 Forgotten Realms
"All-in-all, this is perhaps the best-written Realms novel yet."
--Ed Greenwood (creator of the Forgotten Realms(R)) on Forsaken House

When a half-elf, half-demon villain is released from thousands of years of captivity, the very heart of the elven community of Faerûn is threatened. And the only hope the elves have of defeating the vile daemonfey hordes is to once again return to the lands of Faerûn, to the forests of Cormanthor, and to the demon-haunted ruins of Myth Drannor.

This deluxe gift set contains the novels Forsaken House, Farthest Reach, and Final Gate.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing from WOTSQ Author 29 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this series in light of the fact it was written by one of the six writers of War Of The Spider Queen. I had hoped that a tale of Fey'ri would be interesting but in all honesty this particular trilogy hits alot of very sour notes.

The biggest problem with this trilogy is that it is bland, bland in such a way that you really cant grow attached to the fates of any of the characters in it. All the characters are painfully generic in such a way that not a single plot twist is remotley surpising.

My only possitive note for this entire story was the strategy debates during the combat intervals. The combat sequances were increadbly boring but the debates and strategising before it got you hyped for an upcomming battle like a form of strategy game, you sensed the mood of the leaders trying to direct there forces.

Unfortunatley, not a single battle scene in the entire story felt interesting. I agree with the Lord of The Rings feeling, because thats what this trilogy is, its an attempt to be Lord Of The Rings only it didnt do a good job of it. It really does try too hard to make some of the characters very one dimensional and plain.

But by far the BIGGEST critism which is why it only gets a TWO of Five stars, is the PAINFULLY arduous amounts of landscape description. This book could write a novel on art because it does a great job of describing landscape scenery, but it does so in such a manner that you just dont want to keep reading it. The biggest problem is, none of these areas that you spend at least 5 minuates of your life wasted away on, are ever significant or seen again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Matchless!!! 26 Jan 2012
By Cihangir Tezcan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Most of the dungeon masters and players hate power play in their games and for this reason they cannot stand Salvatore's Drizzt novels in which the characters are perfect and matchless. However, Richard Baker's Araevin Teshurr is far from being invincible (both physically and mentally). The story is fabulous and Richard Baker has a wonderful writing style. But these are not the only reasons that make this trilogy perfect. Being a game designer, Richard Baker is well aware of the history of Forgotten Realms, races, deities, famous characters, spells and limitations... Hence, he tells his story both as a novelist and a dungeon master.

For the first book of the trilogy Forsaken House, Ed Greenwood said "All-in-all, this is perhaps the best-written Realms novel yet" and I cannot agree more. Moreover, I believe that this is perhaps the best-written Realms trilogy yet. This is a trilogy that you would want to read more than once.

4.0 out of 5 stars Richard Baker's characters 27 Jun 2008
By A. J. Bernard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Modern literature is all about characters. The successful television shows focus on characters, and the storyline is a necessary vehicle. Cheers, the Simpsons, South Park... shows that had long runs were all about character. Richard Baker's "Last Mythal" series focuses again on some very well created characters whose names we can never quite pronounce. The main character, a young Elven wizard named Araevin (and for an elf, "young" is a relative term) is on the cusp of greatness. But the coming war with a half elf demon princess and her army will make heroes of Araevin and his companions: some of them posthumously. It is a very well written series of books, and fellow D&D geeks like myself will see the (3.x) dice rolling throughout most of the story if we're looking for them. Familiarity with the rules of the game is not a pre-requisite for understanding the story, however, and that makes Mr. Baker's work ring honest. Mr. Baker is a contributing author for Wizards of the Coast and played a large role in the creation of 4th Edition Dungeons and Dragons.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series 24 April 2013

So far I love the series. These books have helped me create richer, more inspired backstory for my Dungeons and Dragons characters. I highly recommend this set to any fellow D&D nerd, or anyone who likes good fantasy.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Last Quest, no wait, one more. 1 Feb 2009
By VYSION - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The first book was great, really got you hooked. The second was good but a little frustrating. Development of other characters were okay. The last book was super irritating. The whole time I couldn't wait to finish. Battle scenes were the same over and over. I'm tired of these rehash Lords of the Ring battle scenes. Some of the quests were great but a majority of them were getting boring, irritating, and just huh wtf!?
