This book isnt a must read, but it wont kill you. I read it early on and it enspired a few things in me just from the characters. I cant agree much with the detail that the other reviewer mentioned, but the characters were interesing. There wasnt much thought put into the story and it all runs like an RPG translated into a book, but if you have a week to spare to read the three books then go for it.

I have to say that this book fed my imagination. The character relationships are funny, I especially loved the descriptions of one of the male characters by Midnight. I nearly died with laughter. I think this book appeals to a certain type of humour but it is also a great story.

This simplistic novel is easily the worst in the Avatar trilogy, which is pretty damning when you consider that the series as a whole is poor. The writing is extremely basic - you'd struggle to believe that you are reading a professionally published novel rather than something jotted in the note book of a fantasy loving thirteen year old. Despite this, the story moves along at a decent clip, albeit in the form of 'x happened then y happened then z happened and then they all had a fight.' The book is also very cheap so won't break the bank if you are curious like me.

Having read this book many years ago, I was delighted to see that it had become available for the Kindle.

Needless to say I was surprised that there was another two books to add to the original trilogy, I can't wait to read the next four in the series.

As for Shadowdale itself, this novel has everything you require from a fantasy tale. An epic battle between good and evil, gods walking the planet, magic going awry and a romance!!!

A truly good read..

Fun enough for Realms fans, but fairly slow-paced, simplistic and not written with any particular flair. Easy to read, but let down by fairly flat characters.

Excellent book. Detailed and creative. The characters are colorfully outlined with personalities that most authors never see. This book begins the trilogy that shapes the very foundation Forgotten Realms is based upon.

I liked this book mainly because of the first four or five pages. It grazes you with absorbing strength. Nonetheless, it is worse than the other two, and it is like the three books of the trilogy were written by three very different people. Nevertheless, the trilogy Avatar is a classic and this is the first book in the series!!!

If this is an example of books that TSR release, then theyshould just stick to role-playing games. This book is filled with literary cliches one after another. The characters are flat. The descriptions are bad. The only reason I gave this book a two instead of a one is because the plot is not so bad. If someone else was writing this book using the same plot, then I might bring myself to complete it.
