In R.A. Salvatore's second novel of "The Cleric Quintet" series, R.A. Salvatore brings us some his best writing outside of the Dark Elf series. Break neck pacing, intriguing plot, well done character development and growth, hilarious comedic relief, basically, everything you want in a novel, the author packed into this novel.

"In Sylvan Shadows," for me, can be counted among the few novels where I had the time and more importantly, the inclination to actually sit down and read the novel in one day as I simply, could not put this novel down.

The premise:

Castle Trinity, after suffering the loss of the chaos curse and its bid to destroy the Edificant Library, unleashes its army of monsters upon the elves of Shilmista forest. Cadderly, Danica and the Bouldershoulder brothers join forces with the elves in an epic struggle to expel these monsters and regain control of the forest...

What follows is one of the best fantasy fiction novels available. I highly recommend this novel and the rest of "The Cleric Quintet" series to fans of this genre. A note of disappointment that the publisher hasn't made this novel available for Kindle. {ssintrepid}

I have read the cleric quintet before but enjoyed it even more this time through. In "In Sylvan Shadows" Caderly's adventure continues taking his friends and him to the elven homeland to stop Castle Trinity's onslaught. There, action, adventure, magic, mystery, and brutality ensue. Caderly's faith in his friends and in his god is tested. It is one of my favorites.

Salvatore does it again. Cadderly is an amazing character to watch grow. His simple view of the world turned into a hardened understanding of the truth is amazing.

This a great book to read though I wish it was the all in one book that is in the paper back. No matter how many times I have read R.A. Salvatore books, I am not disappointed. Keep in mind that the book is for late teens or for adults, so don't let kids read it!

I enjoyed the book well enough and as a series I am enjoying the Cleric Quintet. However, if you are expecting deep characters and fantastic plots, then you may need to look elsewhere.

Its a fun read throughout. It's worth reading the whole series. I did find that the depth of detail on all the fight scenes were really not necessary, so I started skipping to read through them.

Worth your time I think. I'm typically not a fan of self pitting heroes but Cadderly isn't as annoying as I was expecting.

Having failed to bring down the Edificant Library with the Chaos Curse, the evil forces of Castle Trinity have moved against the elven homeland of Shilmista Forest. The elves are outnumbered and overwhelmed. Cadderly has spent the last year trying to determine the origin of this foe Cadderly leaves to see the action up close. He is joined by the young warrior monk Danica and his fellow priest Kierkan Rufo. In the forest they meet up with their dwarvish friends Ivan and Pikel Bouldershoulder. Along the way they are forced to battle against an overwhelming foe. Will this be the end of the elven realm?

For Cadderly this is his first journey into the larger world. He is a gentle spirit and is greatly disturbed by the killing around him. Once he is forced to take part in the battle how will he be able to deal with the strain? Will he come out stronger, or will his faith reach the breaking point.Will the other priest Rufo overcome his own lack of character? Cadderly's quest for truth will propel him further than he could ever imagine.
