More About the Author

Richard Baker is an award-winning game designer and a best-selling author. He's worked on the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game lines since 1991. Rich traces his D&D experience back to 1979, when he began playing the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game as a 7th-grader. He spent a significant amount of his high school and college years playing D&D at every opportunity, and after serving as a surface warfare officer in the United States Navy, Rich decided to take a shot at working on the game he grew up playing - and so he joined the staff of TSR, Inc., and became a game designer. Rich's list of D&D design credits numbers over 50 game products, including the Origins Award-winning BIRTHRIGHT Campaign Setting, the ALTERNITY Science Fiction Roleplaying Game (which he co-designed with Bill Slavicsek), and the newest edition of the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game. He has also served as creative director for the ALTERNITY and FORGOTTEN REALMS game lines. As an author, Rich has published eight fantasy and science fiction novels, including City of Ravens, Forsaken House, and the New York Times bestseller Condemnation. Rich is currently employed as a senior game designer at Wizards of the Coast, Inc., and works every day on new products for the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game.

I think most fantasy fans will enjoy this book as well.
Andy Gray
The writing style is very readable, the author paints for the most part a rich and vivid story, the dialogue works well, and the plot is fast paced!

It'd be great even just if he picked up where he left off with it.

Final Gate by Richard Baker is the third and final book in the Last Mythal trilogy. The other two books are The Forsaken House and Farthest Reach. This book is the culmination of several plots coming together in a climatic conclusion, one that will have a profound impact on the realms, in particular the area of the Dales. If you have not read the first two books in this trilogy and are thinking about reading this one, I highly recommend reading the first two; otherwise you will be quickly lost in the story and miss the overall picture of some of the events that occur.

The plot of this book was very well written and Mr. Baker did a fantastic job of tying up loose ends as well as giving depth to the story. There are several plots going on at the same time in this book which almost forces the reader to keep reading to find out what is going to happen next. Mr. Baker also does a fantastic job of combining multiple elements, magic (and a great deal of magic there is), politics, intrigue, large scale battles, and personality. I have often been a critic of large scale battles in the past, however, the large scale battle in this book seems appropriate and `fits' within the context of the story. Whereas some other books add the large scale battle just to have one. If you are a fan of magic use, this trilogy is one you will surely enjoy. There is plenty of large scale magic use, but all done in such a way that give the reader the impression that it is something special and not everyone can work magic like that. Truly a well told story and one I enjoyed.

The characters in this book have been developing over two books so for the most part we know what to expect from them. Some authors forgo character development in the final book of a trilogy, but Mr.

This is a very good book, and the conclusion of one of the best of the forgotten realms series. The first two books are even better than this one, the series as a whole gets a solid "A". This Book seemed a bit rushed and lacked some of the color a vividness of the first two books.

The writing style is very readable, the author paints for the most part a rich and vivid story, the dialogue works well, and the plot is fast paced!

The only thing I did not care for in this series was the over powering use of super numbers of super villains, the elves have to not only fight the horde of magical half elf / half demons, but thousands of devils and real demons as well. Just too much, it took away from the believability for me, just too many "Oh come on's" for me.

OVERALL SCORE: (B+)

READABILITY: (A-), PLOT: (A-), CHARATERS: (A-), DIALOGUE: (A-), SETTING: (A), ACTION/COMBAT: (B-), MONSTERS/ANTAGONISTS: (B-), ROMANCE: (B-), SEX: (n/a), AGE LEVEL: (PG13)

I like the chacters and the constant movement of the forces involved in this rather expansive canpaign. The other worlds and explored kinf of left you wanting more since more vivlians were introduced but not conqured.

I am sorta a fan boy for fey'ri so I'm rather bias towards enjoying books like these.

I really liked some of the political intrigue and the going back and forth from one groups' point of view to another. Some of the fighting was really cool, not drizzt detailed but the pale sibil was an awesome chapter.

I was a little sad at the end. Seems like things came to a close rather quickly. The villains maybe could have been a little better. Maybe I'm just a purist but to me they came across a little bit like drow than corrupted elves. Others might not think this but it is just my opinion.

But I really liked it, it is a great book. I hope there are more novels released that have fey'ri as a theme :)

A great conclusion to the Last Mythal series, I eagerly read through this to find out how it ends. I won't give any spoilers here, but there's definitely some poignant moments.
