The story starts off with twin tiefling girls and their adoptive dragonborn father, with one sister summoning a devil, and the other getting snared in it's trap. The story starts right in the middle of things, and doesn't slow down for the whole book.
The characters (Farideh, Havilar, Lorcan,etc.) All of them were absolutely awesome, realistic, and well-rounded.
The inside look into Malbolge, and hierarchy of the Hells.
Bringing the separate factions of Neverwinter together, such as the Ashmadai and the Abolethic Sovereignty, as well as the erinyes of the Sixth. Very nicely done, edge of your seat scenes.
Really, the only con I can say is that I wanted more. There is so, so much more that I wanted, such as the backstories of Mehen and Brin, and what will happen after the ending.
If you're looking for a good book about adventure, devils, and intrigue, then pick up Brimstone Angels now!
Brimstone Angels is the second stand-alone novel by Erin M. Evans. Her first is The God Catcher: Ed Greenwood Presents Waterdeep.
Brimstone Angels follows the misadventures of a Tiefling named Farideh who unwittingly makes a pact with a cambion and is exiled out of the village with her twin sister and their foster father who is a dragonborn. All this happens in the prologue. Now turned bounty hunters, they end up in Neverwinter where there are many plots unfolding. The levels of intrigue are deep and dangerous and through it all some subplots have Farideh learning more about herself and the connection with her sister and foster father, a devil who is "not really a bad guy", and others that would lead to spoilers.
This book was excellent and very different from the norm that has been rehashed through the FR world. Not only that but it also brings all the elements of what has happened into one great story without the downfalls of those elements. What I mean is everything is there from the spellplague, a little bit of the spellscarred which is used very appropriately, and the Abolethic Sovereignty. The flow of the story is well done, though there are a few little grammar hick-ups but not enough to make it too annoying, and even transitions wonderfully from one event to the next. The pace is the perfect combination of action and exposition and keeps the pages turning. I am not one to read more than 30 to 50 pages a day and this one had me reading more than a 100 in the past 2 days.Read more ›
I haven't been a fan of any D&D novels since "Homeland" by R.A. Salvatore and the three original Dragonlance Chronicles by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. This book wasn't as unforgettable as those were but it was definitely worth its purchase price. Don't be suspicious of all the 5 star reviews. It's a great story with neat characters and fun action. I feel bad for not giving it 5 stars but I really try to limit my 5 star reviews to absolutely incredible books. Thank you Erin M. Evans.
Looking at some of the characters deeper and more sensitive emotions gives a level of understanding not usually seen in a fantasy sword and sorcery type novel. Having a heroine to relate to and cheer for was keeping me attached. The book kept me reading for many hours after I had intended to put it down, for wanting to know just what happened in the next chapter.
The author's description of the gritty close encounters of the book satisfied me with their detail and pacing. I was able to really feel like I was right along side the characters as they fought their way through. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a bit of sword on sword excitement in their books.
This book, however, is different. The characters are developed and they interact realistically in a fantastical setting. They feel authentic to the setting, and that's not easy. All too often, writers pluck a modern archtype and put him or her in a fantasy setting and it just feels wrong. It's not just about wearing armors and casting spells and talking like "ye" and "thou" or whatever. It's like they take a dog, dress it up in frilly lace and insist it's a renaissance period romantic drama.
This book isn't lazy like that. This book is all about the characters. Although cataclysmic events are just below the horizon for the most of the book to lend suspense and gravitas to each decisions made by the characters, I could just as happily read about the characters eating breakfast because the characters are interesting and compelling and they interact incredibly well together. That's some damn good writing.
The book hints at a sequel, a series in fact. Count me sold on the series.Read more ›
