4.0 out of 5 stars Untold Adventures Anthology July 21, 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Untold Adventures Anthology

Untold Adventures was released June 2011 and published by Wizards of the Coast LLC. There are twelve short stories that span each of the popular Dungeons and Dragons worlds; Dark Sun, Eberron, Forgotten Realms, and the Dungeons and Dragons self-titled universe. The short stories are written by John Shirley, Alan Dean Foster, Lisa Smedman, Mike Resnick, Kay Kenyon, Sarah Zettel, Paul Park, Kevin J. Anderson, Ed Greenwood, Rosemary Jones, Jody Lynn Nye, and Jay Lake. Most of the authors are new to writing a Dungeons and Dragons based story, but there are a few veterans. After each story there is a brief biography of each author.

"Under the Plains of Rust" by John Shirley
Set in the Dungeons and Dragons universe.
Gnarl is just a simple worker at a local tavern, that happens to have dubious side profession. Because of this, he meets a cursed, dying warlock that asks for his help remove the curse. All he needs to do is recruit a dwarven artisan and his adopted ranger daughter, travel to the Elemental Chaos, brave the Plains of Rust, and unlock a secret. But there's a problem, things don't go according to plan.
Overall: 1/5
Thoughts:
"Under the Plains of Rust" is an extremely frustrating story. The characters are a mess. They have nothing going for them. They aren't remotely developed and just do things for no logical reason. They are just vapid, unlikable characters who are little more than words on the page. The story is also a fact paced, unexciting nightmare of boring. There is no suspense or build up, and things are resolved in a matter of moments. Everything about this story is boring.

"The Steel Princess" by Alan Dean Foster
This story takes place in the Dungeons and Dragons universe.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun anthology for those well versed in the genre July 14, 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is definitely a D&D specific anthology, meaning that if you dont have a passing familiarity with the game and the various settings, you might not appreciate them as much. That limited accessibility is why i knock a star off my rating in fact. The fact that some of the stories are fairly pedestrian is why i knock the other star off. It's always fun to get some Elminster in, and i am always going to enjoy anything coming out of Eberron and Dark Sun, but overall, while good stories, a few didn't really grab me. You certainly wont feel like you wasted time with them, but of the eleven stories in the book, i only thought six were above average. However, they were still fun to read, and i think the overall effect is a nice anthology where you will find something you like a lot. I wont go into the details of the individual stories, since they are all short, but like i said, if you enjoy the genre, you will want to read this. If not, i dont think you will find much for your interest here.
So....for me, this was a three star effort, although i would boost it to 3 1/2 if that was an option.

4.0 out of 5 stars Untold Adventures: December 3, 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I must say I was a little skeptical about this book. My daughter gave it to me because she thought I would like this book of short stories. I'm an avid reader who has about five books going on at once. I must say I love the stories in D&D Untold Adventures. They are well written. The characters are interesting. I cheered for Ravon Kell as he faced Stonefist and the Death Hag. I sat with Charybole and fought along side her in her fight to protect the foundling from Zat. If you are an armchair adventurer like me, read this book. I recommend it to all who would prefer not to read a full length novel of this kind.
