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