Editorial Reviews

About the Author

James P. Davis debuted as a Forgotten Realms writer in Realms of the Dragons II. This is his second novel. He lives in Shreveport, LA with his wife and their demonic cat.

More About the Author

I am a freelance writer (horror, fantasy, and some occasional sci-fi) married and living in the same house with a psychotic feline creature that most people mistake for a cat. I'm occasionally addicted to sudoku and cannot pass up a good riddle, logic puzzle, or mystery (my wife refuses to watch CSI with me and I play Clue with a vengeance). I play D&D as often as I can and like trying to kill my friends using dice, books, and math. I have an odd sense of humor.

Nice pace, good detail and lots of action.

I would recommend this novel to anyone looking for a good standalone novel.

It pretty much is what it is and doesn't pretend to be anything else.

The Shield of Weeping Ghosts by James P. Davis is the third novel in a series of stand alone novels called The Citadels. The other novels in the series are; Neversfall: The Citadels by Ed Gentry, Obsidian Ridge: The Citadels by Jess Lebow, and Sentinelspire (The Citadels) by Mark Sehestedt (July, 2008). The Citadel series focuses of citadels and tells their story in unique and interesting ways. These novels are much like the other series of stand alone novels that have been previously released, such as the Rogues, the Clerics, the Wizards, and the Fighters. Incidentally, Mr. Davis also had a novel in the Wizards series; Bloodwalk.

The plot of this book is actually rather difficult to describe. Being that this is a book in the Citadels series there is certainly a story being the citadel in question. However, as I was reading this novel, and upon completing it, I was left more confused that satisfied with how the actual plot was laid out. There is also a plot line involving a group of the seldom written about Rashemi. Along the way there are a couple other subplots such as an ancient evil, some distrust among the Rashemi, and a mystery that has permeated the Shield of Weeping Ghosts and the secrets it is protecting. The reason I say I was left confused is due to the fact that there are parts of the story that take place in the past, but are meshed together with the present. This, at least in theory, sounds like an interesting concept.

I really enjoyed this novel, it has a great sense of mystery. This is also a book that you can read and at the end you feel you were told a very good story. If you love battle mages then Bastun will be your fix. It was a pleasure to read the story of a mage where they are decidedly human and vulnerable - unlike the epic heroes that always seem to have miraculous powers or divine intervention. There is of course a steady stream of action, and the level of detail makes it very immersing. I would recommend this novel to anyone looking for a good standalone novel.

Most of the Forgotten Realms or D&D books I read are the same in that they are fine and good for passing the time. I find it's necessary to know all the background info in order to understand the next book that comes out. It was good, but nothing really exciting.

I picked this book up without great expectations although the premise interested me I did not expect too much, to my surprise the writing was excellent with a well woven plot and I will be looking out for more books by this author soon.

I really enjoyed this book in the Forgotten Realms series. The author creates an interesting set of tensions between the main characters as they delve deeper into a cursed fortress. There are plenty of encounters to keep those keen on D&D guessing which creatures they are battling and the characters' powers being used. There are a number of plots which come to a satisfying conclusion and the author writes well.
