In the forward to the book Mr Greenwood describes cutting the book down to fit in a novel format, adjusting the book to be an introduction to the major characters and locations of Faerün, the world of Forgotten Realms fantasy setting. In an interview with the author on YouTube, he sets forth his intention that the Realms be a world for Dungeons and Dragons games to be set in, and as a common ground for fantasy writers to collaborate and evolve, cross pollinating their imaginations and honing their craft of writing. Thank you Ed, Greenwood and thank you to the numerous contributors to Forgotten Realms over the years.
The good thing is having read all of Elaine's and Salvatores books I recognized alot of the names in this novel. Which made it an easier read, and not having to try and remember every little character that pops up. Since there is alot of characters getting there "start" in this novel. Over all I enjoyed the book.
Oddly enough Ed Greenwood plays a female character very well. As Shandril throws her self into things she cant handle and having the rest of the world running and diving in to desperately keep her alive, so that parts very realistic LOL. But yeah in conclusion. An easy read, that is enjoyable. Good battle scene's where no one person is the focus. A fantastic book.
And a nice break from R.A Salvatore where he writes as if the world should stop and admire Drizzt and his fighting, even though there life is in peril. Which if your into his early novels isn't to bad. But it gets progressively worse as the Drizzt books are produced. Anyways that's another topic all together.

Charming characters, believable scenarios and some genuine emotion keep me coming back to this one time and again. I actually hold this book in higher regard than any of R A Salvatore's featuring a certain dark elf.
The addition of previously cut material did today this up, but even so, the original is a cracking read.
The other books in the series may fall flat, but this one sets a glorious stage.
To be honest I found the story rather like a pantomime. There's no subtlety and the characters aren't memorable, apart from Elminster. The relationship between Shandril and Narm is quite sweet. Apart from that, I kept forgetting which character was who, and I found I really just wanted to get to end for completion.
