Just picked up Sentinelspire at B&N. Not sure if they slipped it out early since I didn't see a book club scroll!!

(Thought about starting one myself for about 2 seconds until I remembered how severe Big Al can be with the Wooly One!!!)

Never fear, I went ahead and bought a copy

I don't participate in book club discussions anymore because I ran into the problem that the character was introduced in an earlier book and I'm a stickler for starting at the beginning. BUT I am up to date with my Drizzt. Can you please post The Pirateking tread?

May Tymora smile upon ye

A small proposal if enough people think its worth it, but would it be possible mayhaps to do a book club for a Hardcover novel for those who do have the hardcover version (and name the thread so i.e. The Pirate King - Hardcover) and then later when the paperback releases, making a second book club disscusion thread for those who get the paperback (i.e. The Pirate King - Paperback)??

Well met

I don't think it's worth doing two seperate Book Clubs for that, Alisttair. When the paperback arrives, simply drop into the old threads and post your comments.

We tend to have little participation in hardcover releases. I'm happy to create the relevant threads, however (if someone would kindly PM me the number of chapters and if a prologue and epilogue exists).

Thanks, Sage. Much appreciated. I have been waiting for my copy to arrive, but there's no sign of it at all and no word from Amazon since I placed the order a few weeks back

No worries. I've had to put off purchasing my copy this week. I had too many other books to buy before it's release here.

Yes. I'll get to that early next week, unless Alaundo opens them first. But I'll need the number of chapters for the book, and whether it has both a prologue and epilogue [though, I'll assume that's already the case since the last two books in the "Knights of Myth Drannor" trilogy also had them].

I just got my copy (of The Sword Never Sleeps) through the post. It seems to be 24 Chapters with both a prologue and epilogue. I hope that helps, Sage.

Hi Sage,

I'm reading Shadowrealm at the moment and was wondering why the scrolls for it were missing, so if you need some more information in order to open them, here it comes: Shadowstorm hast 17 chapters and an epilogue, there's no prologue.

hello all just wondering if there's any plan to discuss a new/old novel in the book club forum? as the last one's seem to be discussed was Shadowrealm in may and Unholy in April


I like reading the questions and posts of the other readers I never thought of asking and the interesting answers of the authors it throws up, it's really cool

Don't know if this will be interesting for someone but I stumbled across this WOTC forum when looking to discuss Ebberron Novels, I've just read the left hand of death and thought it was really good anyway its a book club forum for all WOTC settings including the Realms it looks fairly new

I think Susan j Morris has something to do with it,sorry if I posted this in the wrong place

Unbroken CHain is a stand alone.

Captive Flame can be read by itself, but features a few characters(including Aoth The Leader of The Brotherhood of the Griffin) that originated in Richard Lee Byers Haunted Lands Trilogy : Unclean, Undead and Unholy (the order of those three may be wrong!)

The order is right, Red Walker.

Tremaine, I highly recommend you read The Haunted Lands Trilogy before reading The Captive Flame. You'll understand more Aoth's (the main protagonist) plight. Also, if you like Thay and Szass Tam, then that's the right/best trilogy to read.

Richard provided certain allusions to the HL trilogy in The Captive Flame, but very few and do not necessarily touch the novel's plot; for me they're there primarily to "promote" the said series.
