More About the Author

I am a speculative fiction author, mostly writing fantasy, science fiction, and some mix of the two. I'm probably best known for the Forgotten Realms series SHADOWBANE (the tale of a thief turned vigilante paladin, sworn to a dead god), as well as a growing body of short stories in various anthologies and available for download on the web. (Seriously, check my website, it's pretty awesome.)

I am also a known quantity in the gaming industry, designing for the legendary tabletop RPG Dungeons and Dragons as well as other systems.

When I'm not writing, gaming, or more writing, I compose technical documentation by day and fight injustice by night. I lives in Seattle and am married with pets

Downshadow by Erik Scott de Bie is the third book is a series stand alone novels titled Ed Greenwood Presents Waterdeep. The first two books are; Blackstaff Tower: Ed Greenwood Presents Waterdeep by Steven Schend and Mistshore: Ed Greenwood Presents Waterdeep by Jaleigh Johnson. Future books to be released in this series are; City of the Dead: Ed Greenwood Presents Waterdeep by Rosemary Jones (June, 09), The God Catcher by Erin Evans (Feb, 2010), and Circle of Skulls by James Davis (June, 2010). This novel marks the third novel Mr. de Bie has written for the Forgotten Realms universe, the previous two novels; Ghostwalker (The Fighters) and Depths of Madness: The Dungeons, are also stand alone novels. While I have been a fan of these stand alone novels, I think it is time that the editors at Wizards of the Coast allow Mr. de Bie to really show his writing talent and give him a trilogy. I think given a trilogy Mr. de Bie will truly show his talent as a writer. Here are my thoughts on this novel.

The plot of this book follows a mysterious Shadowbane as he patrols the depths of Downshadow to deal with the nefarious denizens that inhabit the place.

Wow, I did not expect to like this book. Having been bored and looking for a new series to start, I chose the Post Spellplague Waterdeep series. So far, I am loving it..but this book...was the best. Nice mystery, romance and swordsplay...I am begging for a sequel. Fayne is an enjoyable character and should be made a permanent part of Waterdeep Lore..and that goes for Rath as well. The ending to the book leaves you hanging...will Kalen find Myrin? Who is Myrin really?
Does Myrin hold some part of Mystra within herself? Why cant she remember her past? Was are the blue runes? So many questions...with zero answers!
There had better be a sequel!

This was a superbly written and thoughtful novel and I highly recommend it to any Forgotten Realms fans or readers who simply enjoy a great fantasy experience. However, I want to gear this review towards the more personal impact the novel has had on me. If you are not familiar with the Forgotten Realms I suggest reading another review as this will not make the most sense in the world. Just know that it is a great novel regardless if you a familiar with the Forgotten Realms or not. As a reader of many fantasy novels, I can tell you this one up there with some of my favorites. Now, let me tell you why I personally liked it so much.

With the 4th edition (4E) debate still raging and Forgotten Realms advocates having mixed feelings about the changing landscape, this novel kind of saved my favorite fantasy setting (for me at least). How did it do that you ask? It returned my favorite aspect of the Realms that I had felt torn away from me with 4E - which is the god: Helm. I realize the novel did not resurrect him outright from his extremely superficial demise, but at least he is part of the world again and that leads me to believe there is a chance of him coming back. So an essence, this novel gave me hope for the future of the Realms.

While I was never a huge fan of the D&D board game, I fell in love with the Realms in 1998 with the release of Baldur's Gate and have since owned all FR video games and have read nearly all the novels. Since I first played Baldur's Gate which prominently featured Helm, I have seen him as the iconic god of the Forgotten Realms. He was a HUGE part of those games and was likely featured more so than other Forgotten Realms deity.

Downshadow by Erik Scott DeBie is the third book in a series of stand alone novels in the Ed Greenwood Presents Waterdeep series. The story centers around Shadowbane , a paladin that is desperately trying to adhere to his faith while ridding Downshadow of its more nefarious denizens. He struggles to choose between justice or vengeance when he encounters a nearly unstoppable adversary.

The story was fast paced and drew me in from the beginning. DeBie gives the reader just enough information to set the hook and draw the reader deeper and deeper into the story. The characters grow throughout the story and are very well fleshed out by the end. The fight scenes were vivid and well thought out. I could actually hear Hans Zimmer in the background as the heroes and villains battled throughout the book. DeBie made me really care for the characters, good and bad alike. They are all tortured and flawed in some way and their histories are interwoven throughout the book and I kept turning page after page for a glimpse into what made these characters tick.

I highly recommend this book to new and longtime readers of the Forgotten Realms. If you are looking for a fast paced, action packed book with fantastic characters that leave you wanting more, then Downshadow is the book for you.
