Choppy, disjointed thoughts within paragraphs. The author seems to have wanted to take in a huge story but by taking that huge bite the story became information. The sad parts did not engender saddness on my part nor the parts that were meant to be joyous. The main character was supposed to be funny and witty...not so much. Overall, the information would make a great game module but as a book it needs to be re-polished

This book is hands down one of the worst I have ever read. I am not someone to put down a book half finished, but by 1/3 of the way through I had about had it. The constant flipping of perspective (One paragraph can be 3rd party, while the next is written from character) was annoying to say the least. I think the other reviews have summed up some other flaws fairly well (though I have seen high schoolers write better short stories than this professional novel). Not to mention that the editor must have just stamped the book as fine without actually reading it (random missing words, or better yet, words that don't fit the sentence). It's quite a shame that Cordell has been allowed to continue writing for the Realms after this abomination. But that seems to be the way WotC is going sadly.

Absolutely horrendous. Amateurish writing to say the least, I think the author might still be in high school. I was greatly relieved to see that he was not the author of any more of the Priests novels. And hopefully he'll never be allowed to write another one. What could have been great characters and follow up novels, were poorly written and developed by Cordell. The way he had them act and the things he had them say would never be uttered by characters living in the world they live in. I felt embarassed for them at times. Save your time and money and skip this novel.

This book had a good story. Whenever it got the least bit boring, it picked right back up again. It read quickly and I have no problem with that. But, there were a few things that I did not like. Bruce R. Cordell does not seem to realize that modern terms such as 'Way to go' and 'Okay' and 'Up and at 'em' don't belong in a medieval setting. He completely disrespected the Forgotten Realms fantasy world by doing that. Other than that and a bit of stilted dialogue that was quite inconsistent, I'd say this book was good. It lacks the amount of character development that I usually prefer in a story, but a decent read all the same. The ending is great, as is the narrative and extensive vocabulary that he uses. So if you want a simple read, pick up Lady of Poison.

I thought this looked like a good story... It was awful, and reads like it was written by a high-schooler. Bruce Cordell should stick to writing game manuals.
