    I should first say that I rate all fiction on the same scale so the three star rating is because the book is up against Hamlet and War and Peace and things like that. By the standards of a D&D novel this is very good. The character development is very good and the story (which is a one shot) tight and compact). It manages to play with a bunch of existing tropes in new ways. There is nothing particularly spectacular and subtle, but it is as close to the highest standard that this kind of genre fr I should first say that I rate all fiction on the same scale so the three star rating is because the book is up against Hamlet and War and Peace and things like that.

There is nothing particularly spectacular and subtle, but it is as close to the highest standard that this kind of genre franchise novel can achieve, which is of course quite a limited standard.

    This is a great Forgotten Realms book. Lhasa and Fendal are such lovable characters and Corin's journey to recovery was very satisfying. There were some scenes I would like to have seen included, that would have helped show the building relationship between Lhasa and Corin but the author was very careful to make sure the story was about friendship and not romance and I really respect that. It's rare two characters of opposite genders are allowed to just be friends. On a side note this is the fir This is a great Forgotten Realms book.

It's rare two characters of opposite genders are allowed to just be friends. On a side note this is the first fantasy, much less Forgotten Realms, novel that featured a slime as an enemy and I was thrilled. They're such a staple of rpg games and I've been waiting for an author to use one. Finally!

Liked the weave of the d&d monsters and spell books in with the storyline of the harpers and the interesting “cursed” sword of the orog. Also of note I’m here is several good explanations of multi-class characters, of which I count at least 3. The healing of the main at the end felt like a too quick tie up of a loose end.

    This book was one I enjoyed much as a teen. I read it a couple times but now I feel it doesn't hold up. The basic story of redemption and friendship is fun, but the recovery is instantaneous, the same scene and information are shown or told multiple times and the relationship between the two MC feels a bit forced. (view spoiler)[Fendel is basically a god. He is a magician/priest/thief/harper with endless tools and resources. Why would he train his ward to be a thief and not one of his other more This book was one I enjoyed much as a teen. I read it a couple times but now I feel it doesn't hold up.

    I used to adore the Forgotten Realms books ! I started reading them after they were recommended to me many moons ago and I started collecting them. Much money was spent but as Doctor Who and various other interests came to the fore (as they do every few months) sadly my reading of the Realms fell by the wayside. Determined to get back into it this weekend I got Emma to choose one pretty much at random for me and she chose Temple Hill as she liked the name :) I quite like the standalone books in I used to adore the Forgotten Realms books !

Determined to get back into it this weekend I got Emma to choose one pretty much at random for me and she chose Temple Hill as she liked the name :) I quite like the standalone books in the Realms series as although it’s nice to follow an ongoing narrative or ‘yearly plot’ sometime a fast paced adventure with a beginning a middle and an end fit the bill nicely. This tale by Karpyshyn does just that, it introduces a few heroes some good villains and feels just like a table top adventure should. There will most likely be more Forgotten Realms books appearing here over the coming months… Where I got the book: It was in one of the random bundles of new Realms books I used to buy in lots off American people from eBay.

    A great book. It was well done. Comprehensive story. I was able to understand immediately the plot. Drew Karpyshyn is a great author. I have read almost all of his books. He always delivers. If you are a fantasy reader, you should take a look at this book.

    Fast, exciting and colourful A very quick and nice read. Action, magic and monsters. And a beautiful half elf rogue who leaves you dreamy. I recommend this novel for a dexterous and adventurous city romp!

    Loved this great standalone. Great descriptions of everything from encounters to an inn, detail is bursting at the seems in this book. Great beginning read for swords and sorcery with no need to get an anthology, or extra reading to understand the whole story.

    a great introduction to fantasy adventure in the D&D world of Faerun and a nice one-shot story of cults monsters and heroes .
