    It was a good book! Action packed, likable characters...sadly the ending just was not to my liking. It seemed very rushed.

    It's always a great feeling when, after finishing a book and setting it back on the shelf, the only word that comes to mind is 'wow.' Sitting here now I find my eyes constantly scanning back to it's location on the shelf, just begging to set their gaze on this one once again.

And if ever a cover depicted what was to come, this was it--Raymond Swanland's amazing art gave a real insight into the dark land and emotional atmosphere that made this story so good, so believable. Very few authors have managed to make me feel (actually feel) the sorrow, the remorse, the pride, the unwavering strive for vengeance, the brotherly love, and the betrayal that is so well fleshed out by Jess Lebow. I found myself many times looking up from the page to ponder what I would do in that given situation; but of course, those visions paled in comparison. If I keep going spoilers will undoubtedly start popping up, so instead I'm just going to reiterate my love for this book--I really wish it could continue, maybe a sequel Mr. Lebow?

    The first Forgotten Realms book I pick up and it has to be so bad. I has a serious sad. Unlikeable characters, weak story, worse writing. Just. A total waste of time. The author should stick to writing for videogames.

    "The flames grew quickly, then fell back again. Rising and falling, rising and falling. It was as if they were trying to leap off the log and fly up the stone chimney to escape. But there was no escape. They were chained to the source of their life, stuck to the burning log until it was completely consumed and they were estinguished."

    Usually I honestly want my main characters to be someone I can admire. Or at least charming and/or interesting. This book had two main characters and I found neither to meet even my most minimum requirement. No one in this book seems to have any decency at all really. It's just not what Im looking for in a fantasy book. And really none of the other aspects such as the action or painting the wonders of Fearun were more than mediocre so they sure didn't make up for this.

    I enjoyed this book until the ending, not the direction I was expecting or wanted.

    This is your typical Forgotten Realms story with all of the flair: magic, vampires, dire wolves, zombies, magicians, with a mix of humans who seem to have some abilities as well. The story unfolds with the two protagonists, Liam and Ryder, two brothers from a small farming town held by a seemingly corrupt baron named Purdun. Liam and Ryder are part of a rebellious group called the Crimson Awl who fights against heavy taxation and the baron. That's really about it.

The story unfolds with the two protagonists, Liam and Ryder, two brothers from a small farming town held by a seemingly corrupt baron named Purdun. Liam and Ryder are part of a rebellious group called the Crimson Awl who fights against heavy taxation and the baron. That's really about it. There's no other depth to the Crimson Awl, but I digress. Ryder becomes quickly captured, though Liam believes him dead, and Liam is left to try to lead the Crimson Awl, deal with the guilt of his parents and Ryder's grieving widow. What unfolds, however, quickly results in some role reversals, betrayal, outright stupidity, and the outlying force of vampires invading and causing a ruckus. The true problem of the story becomes apparent with the rise of a powerful vampire mistress named Shyressa who is hungry for not only blood, but power. That seemingly corrupt baron is the only thing stopping her from dominating the part of the world where all of these characters reside. And so, transitions occur. The story is written loosely, but well, and it's an easy, quick read. However, the depth of the characters and the difference of opinions and feelings that arise seems uncannily quick (the entire span of the novel is just a few months). Hard formed alliances that have lasted years change and feelings of love and compassion are shattered rather quickly replaced by new loves and compassion and loyalty. It makes me think I'm reading a story about a bunch of hot-headed dolts. The only characters that make sense for changing allegiance so quickly are the vampires, considering they don't have a choice in the matter once bitten. However, I am not above giving credit where credit is due. It's a good story, one that leaves you at a cliffhanger at the end of each chapter, and the book itself. Good is just about all I can say. It doesn't stand out and it doesn't completely want me to give up on reading either. It's just slightly flat where more depth could be added. The story can be read in a few days and if you're anything like me you'll feel fairly neutral about the whole thing.

    This book was pretty bad on all levels. The story line was decent at best (the only reason for 2 stars, rather than 1) but the writing was weak. I don't know if the original version of this was longer and possibly cut down by an editor, but the story felt rushed. The reader was given a lot of information at once that didn't make much sense. There was one section where someone was listing off cities or towns that had no relevance to the story. The characters were ok, something that seems normal fo This book was pretty bad on all levels.

There was one section where someone was listing off cities or towns that had no relevance to the story. The characters were ok, something that seems normal for a Forgotten Realms story. The action scenes were another one of the few high points in this story. They weren't as good as R.A. Salvatore's battle scenes, but they were easy to follow and with an appropriate amount of gore. All in all, I would avoid this one.

    This book was recommended to me and simply put, it's not my type of book. I love the plot (hence the 2 stars). But the writing style made it difficult for me to get into and I often fell asleep while reading. It's very D&D-esque, which is fine, but the writing style... It's overly descriptive in a stiff kind of way. The structure and flow seem blocky and abrupt. Feelings and thoughts are stated superficially rather than written with powerful emotion that evoke response from the reader.

I know a lot of people enjoyed this book and that's great, I really love that. I wish I was able to, as well, but unfortunately I did not. I will say that the plot is great, there are good cliffhangers, and the ending was... pleasant. :)

    A solidly written, fluffy action book, with a direct and fairly obvious plot, but one that keeps a nice pace and flow. The ending pleasantly surprised me. It's not quite worth a 4th star for it though.

    So while I was reading the book I felt that it was an ok book, but on the last two pages I realized that the was a wonderful epic! I mean I want right away for everyone to read this. Time for the next one. i really like it to be honest and Son of Tjhunder I can't wait to read

    A good quick read, fairly interesting. Nice twists and great fight descriptions / attention to detail. Very well paced, not overly drawn out action and neatly organized lulls. Funny without trying too hard. And cooool characters, never thought I'd root for a dude with a Chain.

    this was a really good book with good descriptive action, and a twisted story that really sucks your attention. When you finish its the kind of book where you wish it had a sequel but you know if it did it would ruin it. I dont think there are to many ladies that would like this book.

    Good pace to the storyline but a little cliched and predictable with an escape scene that didn't seem to be possible.

    Forcefully mediocre. I didn't enjoy reading this at all, and that's saying something. Yuck.

    A good read. Quick, fairly good plot, some nice magic and monsters. I enjoyed it for the first book I've read by this author.

    Solid book. Although it runs out of space at the end. What could have been an epic fight wraps up really quickly. However the rest of the novel was enjoyable.
