Format: Mass Market Paperback
Brimstone Angels is Erin M. Evans' second full length novel and the first of the Neverwinter trilogy. And she's done absolutely fantastic.

The story starts off with twin tiefling girls and their adoptive dragonborn father, with one sister summoning a devil, and the other getting snared in it's trap. The story starts right in the middle of things, and doesn't slow down for the whole book.

Pros:
The characters (Farideh, Havilar, Lorcan,etc.) All of them were absolutely awesome, realistic, and well-rounded.
The inside look into Malbolge, and hierarchy of the Hells.
The villain(s).
Bringing the separate factions of Neverwinter together, such as the Ashmadai and the Abolethic Sovereignty, as well as the erinyes of the Sixth. Very nicely done, edge of your seat scenes.

Cons:
Really, the only con I can say is that I wanted more. There is so, so much more that I wanted, such as the backstories of Mehen and Brin, and what will happen after the ending.

If you're looking for a good book about adventure, devils, and intrigue, then pick up Brimstone Angels now!

Brimstone Angels is the second stand-alone novel by Erin M. Evans. Her first is The God Catcher: Ed Greenwood Presents Waterdeep.

Brimstone Angels follows the misadventures of a Tiefling named Farideh who unwittingly makes a pact with a cambion and is exiled out of the village with her twin sister and their foster father who is a dragonborn. All this happens in the prologue. Now turned bounty hunters, they end up in Neverwinter where there are many plots unfolding. The levels of intrigue are deep and dangerous and through it all some subplots have Farideh learning more about herself and the connection with her sister and foster father, a devil who is "not really a bad guy", and others that would lead to spoilers.

This book was excellent and very different from the norm that has been rehashed through the FR world. Not only that but it also brings all the elements of what has happened into one great story without the downfalls of those elements. What I mean is everything is there from the spellplague, a little bit of the spellscarred which is used very appropriately, and the Abolethic Sovereignty. The flow of the story is well done, though there are a few little grammar hick-ups but not enough to make it too annoying, and even transitions wonderfully from one event to the next. The pace is the perfect combination of action and exposition and keeps the pages turning. I am not one to read more than 30 to 50 pages a day and this one had me reading more than a 100 in the past 2 days.

"Brimstone Angels" was surprisingly good and blew my expectations out of the water. There is hope for the D&D fantasy novel genre so long as Erin M. Evans continues to write like this. I highly recommend this entertaining and fast read as one of the best time killers that's been written in fantasy in awhile. I will certainly be purchasing miss Evan's future work.

I haven't been a fan of any D&D novels since "Homeland" by R.A. Salvatore and the three original Dragonlance Chronicles by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. This book wasn't as unforgettable as those were but it was definitely worth its purchase price. Don't be suspicious of all the 5 star reviews. It's a great story with neat characters and fun action. I feel bad for not giving it 5 stars but I really try to limit my 5 star reviews to absolutely incredible books. Thank you Erin M. Evans.

Immediately after reviewing an ARC of Evans' THE ADVERSARY, I put the first book of her Brimstone Angels series on my list of books to look for. As the months went by I kept looking in bookstores, but could find nothing of Forgotten Realms on the shelves that weren't related to popular Salvatore. After enough time passed to go on and review FIRE IN THE BLOOD, I gave in and ordered a copy. I adore this series and really enjoy Evans' writing despite not being remotely into the role playing universe this is all built upon. The books are simply good epic fantasy, and would be a great place to start for someone who has never read a novel in this shared universe.

Evans excels at writing deep characters, heroes that are far from perfect, whose best intentions sometimes end up causing serious problems. Her villains are likewise well developed. She also does very well at composing intricate, layered plots where the many characters are each able to interact consistently with their motivations. She does this while making everything captivating and entertaining without confusing the reader.

I enjoyed this a little less than to the last two novels to date in the series, mainly because having started halfway though I now knew a fair amount of the backstory of the characters. The early parts of the novel thus weren't as engaging for me, but once characters had been established and arrived in Neverwinter I felt things pick up. A new reader should be engrossed from the start.
