5.0 out of 5 stars Best Forgotten Realms book yet, 5 April 1998
By A Customer
I've read nearly every D&D-related book TSR has published, and this is still my favorite by a wide margin. It gives us an interesting glimpse into the private lives of a semi-dysfunctional wealthy family, and the secrets that they've swept under the rug. It's funny and charming, with just enough action to keep the story moving, but relaxed enough to let the reader enjoy the scenery. Let's face it - none of these books are exactly "deep" - but is good enough that I've reread it several times. Try it - I think you'll like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A family secret and a mystery to be solved..., 29 Nov. 1998
By A Customer
The Wyvern's Spur was a great piece of work. Full of adventure and magic, mixed with intrigue and deception.
Kate Novak and Jeff Grubb make quite a team. Their writing complements each other so well that their stories come alive, and live in your mind long after the book has ended.
I would most definitely recomend this one. However make sure you start with Azure Bonds. You don't want to spoil and of the secrets.

5.0 out of 5 stars A well-written fantasy novel!, 12 Aug. 1999
By A Customer
One of the strongpoints of this series has been the unpredictability of the books - in this novel, the shift of focus changes quite suddenly from Alias to the young nobleman. I won't comment on particular plot points so as not to ruin it, but the surprises are what kept me turning the pages. Novak's writing skill is sufficient to draw me in to the Forgotten Realms, making the characters real and the locations almost palpable.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun read., 29 Jun. 2001
By 
William Marnoch (Edinburgh, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
Giogioni Wyvernspur is considered by his family to be somewhat foolish and not up to very much. However when the family's heirloom (the magical Wyvern's spur of the title) is stolen from the family crypt and one of his family members is murdered Giogi is the only person who can solve the mystery. Although this is the second book in the Finder's Stone trilogy it does not have too much connection to the other two books so could probably be safely read out of order. It's not exactly the greatest fantasy novel ever written but it is fun and very readable, with a few interesting plot twists along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, witty, original and humorous, 21 Aug. 1997
By A Customer
Lovely! Very well-written. I enjoyed it very much. The plot was good and the characters were delightfully original and realistic- especially Olive and Giogi. Highly recommended, but you should read the first book in the series -'Azure BONDS'- first.
