4.0 out of 5 stars A Solid Addition To The Citadels Series, 14 Aug 2011
Mr. A Bridger (UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Shield of Weeping Ghosts (Forgotten Realms Novel: The Citadels) (Forgotten Realms: The Citadels) (Mass Market Paperback)
The Shield Of Weeping Ghosts, by James P. Davis, is Book 3 in The Citadels Series set in the Forgotten Realms universe. The Citadels Series is a series of stand-alone novels that attempt to introduce some of the citadels of the Forgotten Realms and give some less experienced authors a chance to showcase their abilities.

The book focuses on the soon to be exiled Rashemi wizard, Bastun, as he is escorted to the city of Shandaular by the ethran, Thaena, and a group of Rashemi beserker warriors led by Duras. However, when they reach the city all is not well as its secrets have been discovered and its ghosts have awoken. An added dimension to this novel is that the characters, Bastun, Thaena and Duras, have a connection from childhood that makes for a tense atmosphere between the characters and great interaction between them. The primary character of Bastun makes for intriguing reading as he does not fit into the typical 'heroic' mold and simply adapts to the situations presented which gives him a different dimension to heroes from other books.

Overall, this is a good book that I would recommend to anyone who has enjoyed The Citadels Series or is a Forgotten Realms fan. If you have enjoyed this novel then I would recommend the next book in The Citadels Series, Sentinelspire (Forgotten Realms Novel: The Citadels). You might also enjoy some of James P. Davis's other books such as Bloodwalk (Wizards) and The Restless Shore (Forgotten Realms: The Wilds). If you have enjoyed reading about the Rashemi who may enjoy the book, Unbroken Chain: The Darker Road: A Forgotten Realms Novel (Dungeons & Dragons), in which the Rashemi wychlaren play a role.
