So, at last, after a very long year of waiting, the 3rd book of the Chosen of Nendawen has come out.

And it was well worth the wait. What is a drag is it is over. Or is it? I have a feeling author Mark Sehestedt will be visiting this rich world and its awesome cast of characters, (those who survived, anyways), hopefully in the near future.

Cry of the Ghostwolf, as per the past 2 books in this terrific trilogy, picks up right where Sehestedt left off in book 2. Hweilan has gone through the myriad of rituals to become the mythical Hand of the Hunter, and her rendezvous with her dark destiny with the most creepy and wicked body snatching alien creature named Jagen Ghen is at hand.

I won't give spoilers here. I'd never do that. Hate it when reviewers do that. Suffice it to say, that after constantly trying different stories that pique my interest in this Dungeons and Dragons Forgotten Realms vast store of books, Mark Sehestedt thus far has become my favorite. Maybe its because I grew up in Texas and New Mexico, and his world and characters have those textures of Native Americans mixed with Stone Age, with fantasy elements thrown in. Others don't have that texture. None that I've read, leastways.

I've been reading epic fantasy for over 35 years. From the most recent authors of Abercromie to past authors like Zelazny, A to Z, and Sehestedt, for me, shines a new bright light with his style of writing in this genre. Not only is his novels action-packed, (which I am drawn to in books), but he also manages to balance that action with fantastic world-building and rich characterization. If there is only one gripe I have with this talented author, it is the sometime lack of character description. Especially when it comes to the hobgoblins.

Cry of the Ghost Wolf is the third book in the Chosen of Nendawen trilogy by Mark Sehestedt. The first book was The Fall of Highwatch and the second Hand of the Hunter.

Cry of the Ghost Wolf continues right where Hand of the Hunter left off. Now Hweilan and her companions have to find a way to escape from the hobgoblin fortress so she can continue her quest to avenge her family and destroy Jagen Ghen who is amassing an army to consume the world and he has plans for Hweilan. Some subplots involve a matter of honor, the ambitions of the hobgoblin queen, and a love interest.

This book for me was not as exciting as the first two. I am not saying there is a lack of action, but everything kept leading to a way of escaping the fortress and yet the majority of the book is a back and forth escapade within the fortress. For this the pacing does get bogged down a bit but for the most part it was done quite well. The scenes do flow nicely and the descriptions of the landscape are well done and really puts the reader right there in the story. There is some character development that is fitting and all the characters played their parts well. Even some of the tertiary characters were interesting.

Some criticisms:

1. My main gripe is that the book spent too much time in the hobgoblin fortress. Not to say that a lot didn't happen there, but I would have liked to see more of the world around like what was depicted in the first two books of the trilogy.

2. Menduarthes was an awesome character in the trilogy, but in this book his character takes more of a back seat and his skills are not really used much. I would have liked to see more of this character, especially at the end.

Some positives:

1. The story overall was just wonderful.

This book, Cry of the Ghost Wolf, is great. I've absolutely loved Mark Sehestedt's work ever since Frostfell, and this one doesn't disappoint. I finished it within the day, it's so good. It takes a few rather unexpected directions, but is very, very good.

1. Imagery. Absolutely beautiful and exquisite. I felt I was right there with the characters.
2. Gleed! We see him again for a short while!
3. The myriad characters forming through circumstance and chance.

1. At the end, Menduarthis gets left by the side. ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS. He's an awesome character and we still don't find out why he is so powerful. We need more.
2. There's no clear ending. Hints are given that more can/will happen, but with this being book three, I'm assuming this is the last of this trilogy. We need a clear ending.

All in all, a very nice read, so pick it up!

Cry of the Ghost Wolf is the third book in the Chosen of Nendawen trilogy, written by Mark Sehestedt and published by Wizards of the Coast for their Forgotten Realms series of shared world novels. For those not in the know, Wizards of the Coast maintains a variety of shared world campaign settings that it uses as a basis for both roleplaying game adventure modules and as settings for prose and sequential art fiction. The Forgotten Realms is Wizards' general purpose fantasy setting, so Chosen of Nendawen fits squarely into its most successful genre-brand, D&D game-based Tolkienesque fantasy. As is common with shared-world fiction, Forgotten Realms (FR) novels can vary wildly in quality, but speaking as a lover of Tolkienesque fantasy in general and D&D in particular, I'm happy to admit that reading FR novels is absolutely my favorite vice. So since looking for a good FR book can be a little like searching for leprechauns in the wild, you can think of this review as something of a public service for fellow FR junkies.

The Chosen of Nendawen trilogy follows the adventures of Hweilan, a young human girl who is the scion of a noble family charged with the defense of Highwatch, a keep at the edge of the Giantspire Mountains, which are themselves on the edge of the Damaran frontier. The series is a Hero's Journey-type coming-of-age story, with the first book, Fall of Highwatch, following Hweilan after her home is destroyed, the second book, Hand of the Hunter, picking up with her inevitable apprenticeship to a supernatural power--in this case Nendawen, the fey Master of the Hunt--and the third book, Cry of the Ghost Wolf, watching as the now fully-empowered Hweilan at last confronts the enemy who destroyed her home.
