5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent installment in the series. May 8, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
So far, this has been a winning series in my opinion. For me personally, it's great to get these compilations, as i dont really have time to keep up with the monthly comic releases. As this has become my favorite current series, the hardcover releases are perfect.
In this installment, our heroes, having finished defeating the Shadowplague find themselves travelling to Khal's dwarven home (from which he was exiled) to solve the mystery of what has happened to his lady love. The ensuing adventure is pretty typical of Fell's Five. Nothing goes as planned, but even when facing certain doom, they retain their sense of sarcastic humor, lol. As always, this is my favorite aspect of the series. It really brings home the type of interaction that can be had by playing a tabletop adventure. The clever, outside the box thinking, the constant humorous jabs and self deprecation, etc...
Also, i dont know if it is just me, but the artwork seems to have improved with each issue. The images are so vibrant and detailed, they are simply quite stunning. Even though fantastic in nature, they almost seem real. Very beautiful work.
Another great release, and one i highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Concerning Khal May 17, 2012
Format:Hardcover
I had my wife pre-order this as soon as it became available on Amazon. I already had volumes 1&2 which I rated 5 star in both cases, therefore I should explain why this issue gets a 4. I thought the story was fine and Khal is my second favorite character, Bree being my favorite. That being said, I did not think "Art by Committee" was as good as DiVito's more solitary efforts, also the story started to fade a little toward the end, but as it is apparent a sequel is anticipated that was not a problem. I am not going to include any spoilers as it is still a fine effort and well worth reading and owning. I would like to see some of the other characters be more involved in the story, like Tisha and Varis for instance. I do have one personal criticism though and that is the cover art which shows the tiefling Tisha on the cover, whereas the copy I received has art showing Khal and Varis fighting in liquid. Not a big thing I guess, but enough to keep it from being a 5 this time around. I should mention that the art showing Tisha is included inside the book toward the end pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Installment of Fell's Five May 15, 2012
By Ron
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this volume over the previous ones for many reasons. The story is less confusing and more action packed than previous issues. However, I must grump about how the story did drop at the end of the book and it did leave yearning for more. The art was amazing, even though Di Vito stand-ins were used. The constant jokes, although hilarious, did occasionally interfere with the overall story. Nevertheless, I found this edition of Fell's Five to be better than the last and I am eagerly awaiting for the next volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars D&D meets Serenity July 14, 2014
By Britt K
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It's really awesome to find literature and other media that so closely resemble my personal gaming experience. The dialogue from this series reminds me of a cross between the things that happen at my own D&D table and one of my favorite now-defunct TV series, Firefly. Volume 3 does a nice job putting a ribbon on the current story arc and at the same time setting up new adventures. The art is wonderful, the dialogue is enjoyable: overall it's just a damn good read. Looking forward to the next volume.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed! How convenient. July 6, 2014
Format:Paperback
Well I was sent a hardcover when I wanted paperback. Normally this would be a pleasant problem but this was the last in a set of 3 which were all paperbacks. So now 1 of 3 in this series doesn't match. Oh well. To be fair, I ordered from a 2nd party through Amazon.

Down is the last and final book in the D&D series by John Rogers. The lack of a subtitle to the series as a whole would convince you that this was some type of rebranding attempt by Wizards of the Coast. But then you read the story and see the dashing knight, the silly dwarf, the selfish rogue- etc etc. These are tropes and archetypes anyone familiar with the fantasy genre can tell you all about while blindfolded writing her Legend of Drizzt fanfic and nudging the Legolas bobblehead on her desk. That's the thing about tropes, they aren't inherently bad. In fact sometimes they go a really long way in forming characters, not on the page, but in our minds. In this way, the characters of Down can really become something greater than the ink and papers that compose them. They are the collective realization of you and the people who accept you for all your "maybe it wouldn't be so bad to own a prop replica of a bag of holding"-ness. And we could all use a little more acceptance in life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish there was more April 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The humor was fresh, exciting, and the characters were awesome. I only wish that the novels were this humorous. If I had any problem with this book, is that I loved it too much, I want more, and more.

Witty, fun, and action packed, just like the first two. However, some plot points are left unresolved and I really hope more is on the way.
