About the Author

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Brimstone Angels is Erin M. Evans' second full length novel and the first of the Neverwinter trilogy. And she's done absolutely fantastic.

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.

Pros:
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.
The villain(s).
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.

Cons:
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!

Disclaimer-If you read the review and feel there is a spoiler in it, please let me know and I will remove that section. Also, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Thank you.

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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
"Brimstone Angels" was surprisingly good and blew my expectations out of the water. There is hope for the D&D fantasy novel genre so long as Erin M. Evans continues to write like this. I highly recommend this entertaining and fast read as one of the best time killers that's been written in fantasy in awhile. I will certainly be purchasing miss Evan's future work.

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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Brimstone Angels is a new set of characters in the Forgotten Realms world, if you need a break from the other guys for a breather - this story focuses on a pair of twin Tiefling sisters and their Dragonborn mentor / father-figure.

Now, if you have no idea what a Dragonborn or a Tiefling is in the D&D world, then do not read this book, because you will be lost trying to figure out the races in this novel, but if you do know them, then please read on.

The story follow twin sisters, as one becomes a fierce Glaive wielding warrior, and the other, a warlock that has paid a dear price. Because they have been turned out into the world, they do what the do best - travel and hunt, and these along with their Dragonborn Mentor become bounty hunters to survive.

That premise alone had me hooked, and I read the entire book going through the travelogue and excited to see what happens next. the author does a good job of writing female characters without making them frail and lithe, helpless women. Not only because they are Tiefling, as I am sure THAT helps a ton, but because they have been raised to live a hard life.

My only regret is starting the trilogy without the other two books, and now my wait begins for the next chapter in their saga. Well done and well written.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I won this book in a contest on the authors blog, and promptly finished reading it less than a week after its arrival. I found it to be fairly excellent in its presentation and content.

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.
