This book is one of favs because of all of the intrigue and suspense.What more could you want from a story that has Elves , Drwarves,humans and plenty of MAGIC.Great characters and a very good plot make this an enjoyable book.

I found The City of Splendors to be a very enthralling read. Some complain Greenwood & Cunningham use too much detail when describing things, such as the characters. While scores of detail is accounted for in this book, it is not to the point of unwanted saturation, but to the point of satisfactory enjoyment. This book has plenty of madmen, beasts, soldiers in armor, and just the right amount of ignorant and idiotic nobleman who turn out to be A-okay in the end, to make you want to stay up just another 30 minutes to finish out just one more chapter. Give this book a spin.

While most of the Forgotten Realms books are truely spectacular, this one left me wanting more and not in a good way. More in the way it was written, more detail, more action. It has it's moments to be sure, but I've read better.
