Very good job for a very difficult undertaking.
Aside from the occasional name drop, nothing about this book feels like the Forgottern Realms, or even Dungeons & Dragons. To be honest, this book felt more like the Magic The Gathering novels that support each card release.
As to the characters of the book, none of them are interesting, they are litteraly just words on a page. Nothing about them stands out or draws you in. And for a high magic setting, this book has little wonder in it.
I admit I don't like 4th edition D&D, but I thought maybe if I could see it from a novel's point of view, the point of view of the characters, they could change my mind. But this book is just as bland and boring as the edition of the game it is based on.
Japheth is probably the most interesting character . I find a Fey pact warlock interesting, all the more so because as far as I know the only other warlock character in the Forgotten Realms books is Farideh , who's taken a Hells pact. Don't get me wrong it's interesting but I find Fey more interesting. Recommended!
