More About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
"Beyond the High Road" is the second in the, thus far, marvelous Cormyr Saga. The first title, "Cormyr: a Novel" by Greenwood and Grubb, functioned as a stand-alone title, this title does not. In no way does that diminish its value, or its success as a novel. That is not to say it requires you to read the precursor, but doing so will only serve to enhance the plot and the depth to the characters, whereas it will become vitally important to obtain and read the following title. In regards to the author, oft times Mr. Denning has been accused of "not doing his homework" when it came to realms consistency-the prime example being a Shou Embassy in Elversult-nevertheless, he's done his research for this title. His handling of the characters, and their personal voice and ambiance are seamless with previous works. His handling of such renowned characters as: King Azoun IV, both of his daughters, and especially Vangerdahast, is wonderful. This is without a doubt his finest realms work to date, and not to be missed.
Further, Tanalasta the much-maligned crown princess is handled extremely well.Read more ›

However, it is not that great, and i was looking for the end when i was half way through it.
But you own it to the first and 3. to read this one.
This is not a bad novel, just below mediocre. I was cautious when I noticed that Troy Denning penned the novel singlehandedly. Read morePublished on February 10, 2007 by Richard K.
I usually enjoy Troy Denning's Forgotten Realms books, but this one is a mess. First, my copy of the book gives absolutely no indication that it is the second part of a trilogy. Read morePublished on November 3, 2006 by E. Grabianowski
