"Sabira is a great fantasy noir action heroine, and her adventure had a lot of fun surprises and colorful characters. I'm happy to recommend it to others, especially fans of Eberron and DDO. It was a fun read and I look forward to further tales of the Shard Axe."
--Sigfried Trent, DDOcast
 
 
“I enjoyed [The Shard Axe] very much. It was great to see references to various DDO:U NPCs and situations. In particular I really liked a scene where the protagonist had to deal with acid-spewing traps in Stormreach’s sewers. It felt ‘like home.’ ”—Cordovan, myddo.com
 
“Sabira d’Deneith is a fantastic character. She’s flawed and likable. . . .The beginning of the novel really throws you into things. It’s exciting, action-packed, and allows you to really get a grasp on what is going on.” —Read Between the Lines
 
“This is a book to be devoured in one setting.  It is fast paced with bits of backstory dropped in at choice moments that flesh out Sabira’s story perfectly.  While I am not as familiar with Eberron as I am the Forgotten Realms, this book required no previous knowledge of the Eberron setting and can be enjoyed as a standalone novel.  The key element of the story is Sabira, to say that her methods are unorthodox and she is a “bit of a rule breaker” is an understatement but she has a fierce sense of duty that guides her actions.  So her prisoners are brought in a little worse for wear?  It is part of her charm…”—Stefan’s Bookshelf

Overview:

Created in conjunction with the latest update for the Dungeons & Dragons online game, this exciting adventure continues the story of Sabira from The Shard Axe, featuring an underground expedition in dark caverns, drow intrigue, powerful artifacts, and unrequited love.

    Pre-Order Preview: Follow-up to Marsheila Rockwell's 1st DDO novel

    "Skein of Shadows" is a follow-up to Marsheila Rockwell's first novel set in the world of Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited, an MMO published by Turbine. This novel takes place in the campaign setting of Eberron, and follows her earlier novel "The Shard Axe". "The Shard Axe" was an excellent novel for anyone who is into fantasy books! Highly recommended. Since this book has not yet released, it's too early to comment on "Skein of Shadows", but since BN sent me an email to Rate and Review this pre-order, I thought I'd take a minute to give a little background on what's in store. You do not need to be a player of DDO to enjoy "The Shard Axe", and I bet this one will be the same!
