was more interesting for the events that happen in it than how it was written. Although it
was written by R.A. Salvatore , it didnt seem to be as well written or thought out as 'The
Crystal Shard'. (Actually , the part I found most similiar was on the very last page.) In
fact , a group of adventurers seeking something while being followed isnt even that
original at all. Yet when they finally get to Mithral Hall , the story did pick up a bit.
A lot of the northern reaches of Faerun were travelled , but most were insignificant places like Longsaddle , however Silverymoon was discovered and Alustriel introduced.
That said , the novel can still be easily carried by its characters. Added to the originals from 'The Crystal Shard' was the very evil Artemis Entreri. He was written well , but I still dont like the idea of him being THAT good. I know he is meant to be like Drizzt's exact opposite , but everyone Salvatore creates cant be 'the best at what they do'.
Cover - Another excellent cover with all characters still in form. Bruenor is improved upon and showing his equipment , yet Wulfgar's arms seem to be a bit out of proportion.
