Format: Mass Market Paperback
This D&D book I'd read in some time. While my love for the game has always been steady, I got kinda burned out on the books a few years ago. But lately the itch for some good D&D novels has come back. This being a "done in one" book made it a good choice for me to get back onto the horse as it were.

I'd read "Queen of Stone" some years ago and roughly recalled who Thorn was. That was a nice touchstone for me, but the book does a solid job of explaining who she is if you've never read with Thorn in it before. The plot itself is fairly good and deals with some of the more hamfisted issues the move to fourth edition brought. Due to it's nature, Eberron is perhaps the D&D world best suited for the shift the new edition brought and to his credit Baker makes the introduction of a new race into the world fairly smoothly.

Additionally, there's some use of fan favorite spells and magic items. I always love it when magic gear from the tabletop games is used in stories. This book has a very smart use of one item that my own characters have used. I got a big kick out of that.

The story itself is a solid one. The plot is clear, has atmosphere, and throws a few good turns at the reader. Characterization wasn't the deepest, but Thorn had a few good moments and their was a confrontation at the end that I found especially good. On the other hand, I don't care for the cover at all. But that's a very minor thing.

At the end of the day, if you like Eberron stories this book is certainly worth a read despite some small flaws.

I've played D&D in the Eberron campaign setting (my absolute favorite), which was designed by the author. These books are a nice addendum to that world. Good rollicking adventure, and characters with some depth. At times they could use a bit more of an editorial (and just simple proofreading) hand at work in them. Some mispelling and repeated turns of phrase occasionally take me out of the story a bit, and make it seem like the books were kind of rushed to production - and I'd imagine that's probably the case. I would not go so far to say they need another whole draft, but could definitely use some polishing. This is a quibble though - I would still read anything this guy writes, especially in this setting.

I have loved the series. Book three explores more of Thorn's background and the intrusion into Eberron from the Fae Wilds as an explanation for the Day of Mourning. Book leaves me wanting more stories about Thorn and her future discoveries about who she is.

Are we who we are because of what we are or how we choose to be?
