Since the Spellplague, I have been waiting for the drow to make a reappearance (Drizzt doesn't count because he is one drow and is not involved in the other events concerning his race). Since the events in Lady Penitent (great tirlogy, by the way), we have not heard much from the black-skinned race, and many questions are as yet unanswered. Lolth's plan to take over the Weave is, frankly, terrifying, but one can tell Wizards of the Coast is finally putting events into motion after the Spellplague. It was kind of strange to read about a deva and the drow in the same book, but not in a bad way. We also start to learn more of Damascus' past. I found the flashback of him fighting to free souls and angels coming to ferry them away before the mountain collapsed quite interesting, and I wish there had been more of it.
All in all, a must read for any Forgotten Realms fan. The only real complaint I have is that it is only available as an ebook. Kindle is good for some books, but I like my FR books in hard copy, thank you very much. If it ever does come out in book form, I'm buying it, even though it is already on my Kindle. The first one was a hard copy, so why wasn't this one?
I really enjoyed it; it has everything a Realms fan can ask for Airspur gangsters, Drow, Monarchs in action, Powerful artifacts, Deities, Vampires, Epic battle scenes, cameo's of characters from other books, and betrayal. I really love how Demascus is seeing the differences between who he is now and who he was and I am excited to see how this may play out in the future. I can't get enough of Airspur, the city sounds amazing and dangerous and full of energy. This novel also gave me a greater sense of things happening within the Realms outside of the narrative. The Realms doesn't just have Demascus and crew doing their thing, there are adventurers and villains out there somewhere having adventures and I enjoyed that about this novel. I have only one negative about this book and it is the pacing. I felt like I was on a fabulous wild ride and then an abrupt halt and then another wild ride and then another abrupt halt. It is a minor complaint in an otherwise excellent book.
At the end of the book a number of cool additional sections provides additional notes on the setting, Cordell's thoughts on writing and a good deal of insight into this particular corner of the Forgotten Realms. Bruce is a talented author with a good voice for the genre and a good handle on this kind of adventure-based fiction - pick it up!
