I've read a lot of fantasy in my life, some good and some bad. Luckily, THE GOD CATCHER falls into the good category. It's not so much a fantasy book as just a great adventure story. The author does a nice job setting the characters and mood quickly. It's a great story about a young noblewoman trying to find her way in a world of magic, thievery and dragons. The plot moves quickly and you never feel bored. At the end, you'll ask the age old question: What happens next?

I never write reviews, period, but I was so blown away by the way this author writes in the "well worn" FR series of D&D Novels. Despite a couple of Deus Ex Machina moments (in a world based on the fantastic, I don't really have a problem with this), Mrs. Evans displays a real knack for non-linear character development. This is the first post spellplague novel, besides the Richard Baker novels, that it felt truly like the Realms again, not so much of the alien world a lot of the newer FR novels portray (though I do enjoy many of these changes).

Great book!!! I really hope that she continues these characters in later novels. Definitely up there with Kemp, Baker, and Salvatore.

The God Catcher by Erin M. Evans- This is the fifth book released in the Ed Greenwood Presents Waterdeep series of stand-alone novels. This series contains five other entries, which are all written by different authors. With all stand-alone novel series, any of the other entries can be read out-of-order. The series is set in the Forgotten Realm universe. The other novels in the series includes; Blackstaff Tower by Steven E. Schend, Mistshore by Jaleigh Johnson, Downshadow by Erik Scott de Bie, City of the Dead by Rosemary Jones, and Circle of Skulls by James P. Davis (due out in June 2010). The God Catcher was released in February 2010. This is Erin M. Evans first full-length novel, but she has contributed a short story in The Realms of the Dead anthology titled "The Resurrection Agent."

The story is about a noble girl named Tennora who doesn't want to be a proper lady but just wants to study magic and lore. Her aunt and uncle worry over where she lives, an apartment complex called the God Catcher. The complex is called that because after the Spellplague, a giant construct that guarded the city of Waterdeep went crazy and was trapped half-underground and half above. After a visit from Tennora's aunt and uncle, a seemingly crazy woman is yelling and throwing rocks at the God Catcher. After the woman vanished before the Watch could step in, Tennora thought nothing of her. Until she went to a tavern across the street and the crazy woman struck up a conversation with her. Tennora, feeling sorry for the woman, invites the crazy woman to have dinner with her. During their meal, the woman, Nestrix, claims she's a dragon and that the landlady of the God Catcher could help change her back into her dragon body.

First of all, this is a good fantasy novel. If you don't want to read anymore in this review, just know it is 5 of 5 stars if you are a Forgotten Realms (FR) fan. If you don't, it's better start at some point, so hey, try this book.
Being a FR fan, it's difficult to me separated where a non-FR fan could enjoy all in this novel, but I think you can make good time of the reading even if not inclined to fantasy novels.

Lets to the review, shall we?

The book follows Tennora, a wanna-be mage living in the City of Splendors, the greatest (well, now Baldur's Gate is bigger, but have not the glamour) city in the Forgotten Realms setting. She is spring to a recently noble family, so much of her life where dictated to being a nice and polite girl. Like all good heroes, she is an orphan, growing in the care of her uncle's. And at the beginning of the novel, she is trying to make her live without her parents.

Then, comes Nestryx. And she is a difficult person - maybe because she's a dragon trapped in human form. This is a concept I will gladly take for my FR RPG campaign! And Nestryx is searching for a way to revert to her dragon form - but she have bounty on her head for murder, and some say she is simple a spellscarred crazy person.

The novel unravel in the plot of a dragon game being played secretly, and one of this players is much interested in gaining hold of Waterdeep.
After this, I would be spoiling your fun, so go read yourself.

The God Catcher is a great adventure book and does not disappoint. Ever since the changes back in 2008 I had been refusing to read anything new from FR. Some of my favorite fictional deities and characters were murdered, and I shuddered to see what would become of the Forgotten Realms without them. However, I have also seen how dead gods have a way of coming back in the Forgotten Realms, so I will keep my fingers crossed for Mystra and Eilistraee.

Tennora Hedare and Clytemorrenestrix (she who thunders in the sky) are unforgettable characters. I would love to see them again in other novels. Tennora is innovative as a wizard-thief, and Nestrix is a dragoness trapped in the body of a human. There is a persistent theme of dualities. Dualities and how we come to terms with them in order to create, or recreate wholeness. However, the theme is rendered in the context of a great adventure story that is never boring and adds an interesting intellectual dimension that was often lacking in past FR campaign novels.

Though I find the Forgotten Realms sadly reduced with the destruction of the weave of magic, and all the gods who died terrible deaths (the death of Azuth was rather shocking), I find that it remains a world full of potential and promise. Anything may happen in this campaign setting, including the return of dead fictional deities. Just when this will happen, who knows? Perhaps it is not yet permitted for writers to write such stories since it's too soon. However, there is the opportunity now for writers to create stories about the remaining deities like Selune, Tymora, Lathander, Sehanine Moonbow, Chauntea. I have a feeling that Selune will have some role in bringing Mystra back. But we'll see.
