Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Enter EverQuest, a world of startling imagination, where the excitement and adventure is never-ending.

Imagine finding yourself in a fantastic world that is not of your making. Elves, trolls, wizards and warriors look upon you with suspicion as they urgently pursue their quests. Monsters and maniacs attack in dark of night or bright of day. Adventurers you have never before laid eyes upon may seek your companionship—or your head. In the grand tradition of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the EverQuest saga delivers breathless thrills and unbound wonders certain to satisfy fantasy readers the world over.

It was difficult to follow and the violence seemed to bother me.
TheHutches
I am a big fantasy fan and I follow pretty much what is written and is on the market but this book is an insult to the name Everquest and R.A Salvatore.
L. Kolano
So anyways, the first half of the book was really hard to digest.

This is the start of the Novelization of the Everquest series, and I, for one, believe it to be up to par with other shared worlds; i.e. Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, and Star Wars. Do no be swayed by the number of pages, or not ever having played Everquest (I didn't know a ting about Everquest till reading this book), or the other reviews here on Amazon.

The Rouge's Hour is an easy and fairly quick read. It was enjoyable and simple to pick up attributes of a new world. Ciencin has wonderful characters that are both believable and interesting. I would truly enjoy seeing more from Everquest novels and Scott Ciencin in this world.

The Rouge takes his name from a note upon himself. His past a mystery to seemingly himself alone, as those around him try to take advantage of his loss. He knows no one to trust but still finds himself able to spring out of the hard spots he gets into, and with charm. With the scant memories that return to him and the hints he picks up from others he understands that he is caught in a scheme of ending the world, but is unsure of his true orientation. He hopes his past is better than what those tell him. Will he remember himself? Will it help him if he does? Or will it destroy him?

If you are a reader in any shared world, pick this up! You will not be disappointed

Format: Hardcover
I must start off by stating that I have never played any of the Everquest games before, though I have always been more than curious to try them out. Unfortunately, my server is too slow to play on-line games... That is why when I found this book by Scott Ciencin, I was more than eager to get a chance to read it. And might I say, I was not disappointed.

Though I've never read anything else by this author, I must say he seems to do quite well on this one. "Rogue's Hour" has a storyline that will leave you guessing up to the very end, and an ending that is far from disappointing. It is filled with action, adventure, and even elements of suspense. My only complaint is the lack of any real romance, which might have added to this story. Then again, perhaps that would have taken from what this has going for it...who knows.

The story revolves around a hero who has no real memory of who he is or where he's from. However, he soon finds himself having dreams...or perhaps memories...of a great dragon, which only confuses him even more as he soon winds up entangled in a great quest full of mystery and betrayal. Who is he, what is the relevance of the dreams, and who is it that is trying to put an end to his very existence... All of this reveals itself in time, leading to a great and climactic ending.

Despite lacking any romantic theme, this is by far a great story. In my opinion, it reads almost like a video game...quick paced, full of adventure, and keeps you guessing at what will come next. So, if such a book sounds of interest to you, then give this one a chance. You shouldn't be disappointed.

The book is supposedly based on a role playing fantasy game. I am not interested in gaming but love the fantasy and sci-fi genres. Rogue's Hour has interesting characters, creatures, and a whole world of possibilities.
Personally I would like to see more written about the Rouge or his world.

By G. Staley on January 10, 2005
Format: Hardcover
While a little flowery in language the overall story was well done with characters easy to hate - very few to love. For those who play in the Everquest world this is a great addition and will make a great series. Hopefully Bob Salvatore will also write a book or two and bring in some of the other great fantasy writers. Scott Ciencin has done some great work for Wizards of the Coast which I loved but this was just not up to his best work, thus a 4 star.

13 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on October 17, 2004
Format: Hardcover
Fears grow with justifiable cause. The magically contained malevolent Dragon of World's End will be released by evil necromancers, wizards, and shadowknights who have obtained the last object they need to bring forth the scourge.

In Southern Qeynos, a stranger stops Sizemore the Red and Bully Duetchmar from acting stupidly by preventing their assault on a woman. Afterward, the stranger admits to the lady that he has no idea who he is or anything else. Using the name Rileigh he flees by sea from a necromancer and a shadowknight. Rileigh finds others trying to kill or ally with him on his great quest that he seems to be the only one not to know what it is. Quickly concluding that he cannot trust friend or foe, Rileigh wonders if his greatest enemy is his own past as he hunts for four objects of power that once chained the deadly dragon even as he wonders if he switched sides and released the killing beast.

Obviously taken from the interactive online fantasy game, R.A. SALVATORE PRESENTS EVERQUEST: THE ROGUE'S HOUR is a terrific epic saga starring a delightful hero who keeps his sense of humor throughout his dangerous adventures. Those not familiar with the Everquest Universe will enjoy the tale as Rileigh will remind readers of Hans Solo in a fantasy realm. The support cast makes the universe seem genuine or brings out the good and bad of the reluctant champion. Targeting gamesters, other genre readers will appreciate the tale and seek other works by Scott Ciencin (see the Charmed LUCK BE A LADY or the Angel NEMESIS)
