I have mixed feelings about this novel. It was by Ed Greenwood, and written in his excellent style. The story was fresh and flowing, and keeps you guessing until the end. However, some things were apparently just dropped. (warning, spoilers) The drow in Scornubel were cool, and the book could have existed on that point alone. However, everything was just dropped, in almost every chapter, in place of something else. In the end, there wasn't any big revelation. Halaster Blackcloak just say's yay, I think I'll start a cabal with different people for no reason.

They never explain why the drow are in scornubel or almost anything else. I think that there's something about shar wanting mystra's powers or something. It was written well, but not wrapped up (and it is meant to be a stand alone novel).
