Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would recommend this for readers who want to expand their knowledge of the Forgotten Realms and provide a backdrop for other novels in the universe. I would not recommend it to someone looking to enjoy a standalone book. There is a fair amount of filler. After a somewhat jarring introduction, the plot lags for most of the book.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
The latter quarter or so of the story is the most exciting, and I think the ending is well-written and rounds out the plot nicely. Of course, not all ends are tied up, as this is merely the first book in a series.
What three words best describe Nicole Greevy’s performance?
Monotone, bland, and unconvincing. The only characters who I felt Greevy portrayed well were Mystra and Midnight. When voicing male characters, Greevy often sounds as if she is making fun of them.
Do you think Shadowdale needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Yes, clearly. There is much more to this story arc.
