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.

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.
