This is a great story - full of undead, sorcerers, orcs and other creatures, double crossing traitors, great friends and companions, and the overarching story of the battle against treachery and betrayal from more than one direction. In the course of the story Geran finds more of a path for his life journey, but at the end of the book it is clear that there is more than one thread of unfinished business still for us to discover as the trilogy continues.
I love these Forgotten Realms, Dragonlance, Ravenloft (Strahd is the most brilliant character ever!) and other similar type novels; and this book is no exception. It bodes well for the remaining two volumes in the trilogy.
The protaganist is Geran Hulmaster an elven trained swordmage (warrior-wizard) who along with his halfing partner Hamil returns to his home city of Hulburg for a friends funeral. He finds his friends death was no accident and during his investigations has encounters with corrupt politicians, devious merchant companies, an undead king and a rampaging orc horde. Rich combines all these elements into an interesting and cohesive story which zips along at a good pace.
It is the supporting characters that make this story. Many of them are more interesting than the hero himself who is somewhat inscrutable.
Buy this if you like FR novels its probably the best of the novels to come out in the last year and a good introduction to the series if you are new to it.
