    Great story. Poor-fair writing

    First of all this is one of the most grabbing stories I've read in some time. I will not stop reading it till its finished but I must say that the writing style is almost childish. There are many mistakes (and im not counting typos which I assume are from putting it into electronic form), such as double word usage where its not correct and even one spot where Salvatore wrote two different versions if pretty much the same sentence. Most of these things should get the editors fired. Overall though its bareble, obviously being that I am still reading it, and I love the pacing and many times cannot put the nook down even when I should go to sleep for work the next day. This is and the ones before and after it are a series i recommend to fans of the genre.

    I Also Recommend:

    Not Quite Orginal

    Unfortunately, I read this book just after reading a wonderful fantasy novel, "Timbuktu Chronicles: Aida and the Chosen Soldier." I expected this one to have much of the originality and style of "Timbuktu Chronicles. But Salvatore uses the same creatures and characters that are already well known in the "normal" fantasy world. Also, even though Salvatore uses a simple language that is easy to understand, it lacks the beauty and style used in "Timbuktu Chronicles."

    a genre book

    First of all I LOVE fantasy and *escapist* literature. BUt I didn't like this book. here's why:

    I bought it because the prologue sounded promising, both in writing voice and content. To my dismay, all that je ne sais quoi was gone the moment the print started after chapter one. I know this will offend some people (one of my best friends included) but IMO this is a rather generic roleplayinggame based novel. I could find very little originality and it reminded me from the start of my AD&D session when I was 14. I couldn't identify with the rather blueprint characters and I have to admit I stopped reading it about halfway through and purposefully left it in the train in teh hopes of some 14 year old finding and enjoying it.

    So, if you consider picking it up. Take a peak not just into the book, but into chapter 1. If you like what you read go ahead, but I wish he had just shown some more of the exquisiteness he so aparently is able to produce in the prologue.
