Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

This is the third installment of Salvatore's Demon trilogy that starts with The Demon Awakens and The Demon Spirit.

Once again the demon dactyl of Corona seems defeated. Ranger Elbryan Wyndon goes north to protect the new settlers from goblins and powries, but his beloved Jilseponie returns to Palmaris. There Father Abbot Markwart is consolidating his power over Church and State with the aid of gemstone magic and the demon's power. Pony's determination to stop the evil abbots puts her and Elbryan in deadly peril, for even the king has been turned against them.

From Publishers Weekly

This extension (after The Demon Spirit) of the adventures of ranger Elbryan and his lover, Pony, may be Salvatore's strongest fantasy to date. Aided by his friends, the elf Juraviel and the sly centaur Bradwarden, Elbryan fights valiantly for the freedom of the northern lands of Honce-the-BearAfreedom from the schemes of the Abellican Church, the evil Dwarves and the royal authority of King Danube Brock Ursal. Meanwhile, Pony, who is carrying Elbryan's child, heads back south to Palmaris, which has come under the authority of the sinister sorcerer Bishop Marcalo De'Unnero. Pony is determined to avenge the death of her adoptive parentsAeven if doing so means risking her life, and her child's. Salvatore's potent mixture of detailed historical context, well-rounded characters (including secondary figures torn by conflicted loyalties to their church and state), brisk pacing and exciting battle scenes make for a consuming read. Author tour.

Customer Reviews

A great book with lots of action, a great story line, with well developed characters.
Kindle Customer
The plot is wonderful, the characters are realistic, and the ending will leave you intensely wanting more.

Throughout the second and third books, very little happens, and almost none of it good.

I found this book awe inspiring, for any true fan of Salvatore's this is a must read and if you are just a fantasy fan you can't go far wrong with this master piece. The book folows many twists and turns from hope to dispair and back again taking the reader along for the ride. The book lacks nothing and wets your appetite for the next adventure. Salvatore has shown us that he still has the ability to write a great adventure after doubts sprung from the continuation of the legendary Drizzt saga which is beginning to spiral out of control. The book follows a well structured path which leaves the reader spending countless hours turning page after page with no realisation of time. I would recommend this book to anyone and would challenge the opinion of anyone who doubted its originality.

The Demon Apostle is one of the few books that went beyond what I expected it to be. Salvatore is an excellent author and has always excelled at writing about action and the way a character thinks, and The Demon Apostle is no exception. With the conclusion to the Demon War trilogy, I believe he has written a brilliant conclusion to a series that is as unpredictable as it is exciting. This is without a doubt the best in the series, and I would recommend it to every fan of fantasy.

While I tremendously enjoyed the premise of the Demon Wars trilogy, I wish RA Salvatore had ended it. I knew I was in trouble when I neared the end.
Leaving the ending so obviously unconcluded was a big let down. I wonder when the next trilogy will start? And more importantly, when will it end?

Salvatore has betrayed me.

This review covers all three novels in the Demon Wars Trilogy, because to me it doesn't make much sense to evaluate each individually, where almost anyone would choose to read all three novels or none at all, although, knowing what I know now, someone could more happily end their reading after the first novel. However, I can give independent ratings to each, (reflected in the numerical review for this specific book on Amazon) as the 4 for the Demon Awakens, 2 for The Demon Spirit, and 3 for The Demon Apostle. And that averages it to a 3 for the trilogy on a whole. The differences aren't for most of the quality of writing, but they are for the pacing and the painful and overly drawn out suffering Salvatore puts the reader through in the second and third novels.

My outlook and review was VASTLY different after I finished the first novel. I thought that it was one of Salvatore's best books, taking the strengths and dependability of his basic fantasy writing, and adding to it more levels of emotional depth, more interesting plot points, but coinciding in a more traditional, but more satisfying fantasy ending. Fantastic! But, after reading the next two, I would never have read started the series knowing what I then knew...Or, perhaps I would have stopped there, knowing that there was more resolution there then there would be after slogging through two more.

A fan for a long time of Salvatore's classic TSR novels, which were enjoyable and entertaining in the classic Dungeon and Dragons mold. While these could be formulaic and a bit shallow, and more ambitious fantasy was sampled, the combined gaping flaws and pretentiousness in some of that other work led me back to enjoy these more anyway.

I must say that I am not exactly a true fan of the fantasy genre, in that I have read only one other trilogy, that of the works by an Australian author Tony Shillitoe and his Andrakis Trilogy. I must say that they were the first "can't put it down" novels that I had ever read and so spurned an interest in these ficticous tales(He's not the most well known author though I have no idea why however I highly recommend these books to any who might come across them).
Thus I found the works of the Demon Spirit and the Demon Apostle, and found them to be truly the most enthralling story I have come across(As yet I have not read the Demon Awakens but mean to). This thrilling conclusion draws more toward the conflict involved in the politics and religion of Corona, rather than that of the battlefield, as opposed to the second and so I've heard the first one.
Though as enchanting as it is, the disappointment and saddness is also as strong. I grew quite attached to the ranger, almost from the moment he was described in the second installment and was quite supprised that such a strong charater would be elimenated from this saga which is to continue(Ascendance is almost out when I write this). I feel that the remaining characters including Pony after she was unable to control her rage in Palmaris, are not strong enough to continue a solid plot, especially with the evil which lies in the soul of perhaps the most powerful and strongest creature in all of Corona(Imagine if he learned to master both bi'nelle dasada and the gemstone magics!).
