While I must admit that the story starts as a stereotypical dungeon crawl with the basic questing party components, it is still worth every penny spent on de Bie's first Forgotten Realms novel. A collection of prisoners are forced to band together to escape a dungeon in parts unknown. Fox-at-Twilight, or 'Light' for short, is a moon elf with a jaded heart and mysterious past that she refuses to share with anyone. She even carries a sword named Betrayal, ironic since being betrayed so often is what has darkened her outlook on life and love. While I'm not familiar with the classes used in D&D, the main character can move through shadows. Another interesting point about Light is that even though she is an elf, she cant enter Reverie. She actually falls asleep! There are so many twists and turns, it will surely keep you guessing who the enemy is that has trapped them. There is more death and darkness on a very personal level in Depths of Madness than in any other Realms novel I've read in a long time. All the supporting characters are well fleshed out and believable despite the fantasy genre it falls under. The battle sequenced are fast paced, excellent and on par with R.A. Salvatore's Legend of Drizzt series. Thankfully you don't have to know anything about the Forgotten Realms or D&D to enjoy this book.

Very refreshing read. Not at all predictable. A very 'grown-up' Realms novel. This was my first de Bie book and I'm definately purchasing his other novel. If you'd like a Realms book that breaks the status quo, then buy this...

Depths of Madness easily lives up to the high expectations I had for Erik de Bie's second novel. It is an even darker novel than Ghostwalker and is just as well written. This book pushes the limits usually constraining the Forgotten Realms series, which I think is refreshing. It has new ideas and uncommon characters, rather than relying on stereotypical, tried-and-true formulas. Characters are not invincible they have their weaknesses and so they seem realistic. There is an array of both heroes and enemies, and the distinction between the two is not always obvious. Uncertainty is a common motif throughout. The story line is exciting and gripping, and sometimes even horrifying. Overall, this is an awesome book, and I can't wait to see what Erik de Bie creates next.

DIY is better, imagine, Anndy DAbeck produced by a 3-D printer! The materials needed would read like Hannibal Lecter's new face escape. Rats! I forgot A.R.D's. A brainless psychopath, thank Satan! Dabeck hates Islam, just dumb!
