From the Back Cover
PREPARE FOR DRAMA, HEART-STOPPING SUSPENSE, AND WONDROUS MAGIC AS THE CRIMSON SHADOW REACHES ITS BREATHTAKING CONCLUSION
There is no peace for King Brind' Amour's newly liberated Eriador, as Avon's evil King Greensparrow breaks the truce with border massacres and demon sorcery. War is inevitable, but would be suicidal: even when allied with Dun-Darrow dwarfs, Fairborn elves, and the Riders of Eradoch, Luthien Bedwyr and his friends are hopelessly outmatched by Avon's Cyclopian legions. Meanwhile, Brind' Amour's magic must face the fiends of Avon's sorcerous dukes . . .
Battle will now be joined on mountain, plain, and swamp; on land, sea, and in the air – in a war of courage and dire wizardries. Yet in the end, all the valour and might of Eriador, all the daring of Luthien's magical alter ego, the Crimson Shadow, may not be enough to vanquish Greensparrow's ultimate weapon. For Greensparrow isn't merely allied with the hell-monster he plans to unleash it; Greensparrow 'is 'that vast and terrible being.
'Bob Salvatore is a writer to watch'

This book was a little better than previos ones, only reason I gave this two stars. And the only thing saving this book from being a total failure is Salvatore's battle-description.
I don't know, perhaps I'm just a little too old for this kind of books. I guess that if you are a 13-years old boy you might just like this book.

A lighter read, but hits the epic fantasy "sweet spot".
