Of all the debut Forgotten Realms authors that have come out in recent years, I think I enjoyed Rosemary's writing the best. She reminds me a lot of Elaine Cunningham in writing technique. Both writers create relationships between their characters, as well as writing sword and sorcery action. - Grasping The Wind
From the Author
Folks have asked exactly when this adventure occurs. It takes place roughly 200 years before the Spell Plague and other major troubles in a far corner of the Realms. Tsurlagol is known as the Realms' most besieged city -- and every siege needs a few sappers to end it. Enter Ivy and her crew to take down the city walls.
