The book opens with a fair where we meet the main characters; Robyn, Tristan, Daryth, and the moorhound, Canthus. As we get to know these characters (they are very deep - not exactly your infallible hero types) Kazgoroth makes his move to try to take over the Moonshae Isles.
Along the way, our heroes are pulled into the struggle. The action increases and a few more characters are introduced, which are each also interesting in their own way. I love how Niles makes his characters come to life - even the minor ones.
This is an action-packed read with deep characters - good and evil. This is a book that sets the standard for others in the FR realm - even among other fantasy novels period.
This is an awesome book - highly recommended.
I read this series when it first came out in 1987, and several things impressed me about it at the time:
1) The author is a serious fan of roleplaying games, and has first hand experience in game design ... and it shows through clearly in his writings, both then and now.
2) This was one of the first books set in a 'pre-fab' role playing world (in this case, "The Forgotten Realms" of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons RPG), in which there were already extensive supplements available showing the lay of the land, the peoples, the creatures, the spells, etc. According, without having to re-develop all that from scratch, the author was able to leap directly into his story.
3) At the time, this was one of the few RPG-themed books out that dealt with Druidical themes - which was always a favorite subject of mine whenever I roleplayed.
In any case, it's a solid fantasy series, and I'm glad to see it come back into print. Despite being the first of many many forgotten realms novels that came out later, it's still among the best of the "RPG" sub-genre of Fantasy.
