This book, along with the previous one, DotD, is excellent. Just like Salvatore's Drizzt Books left me wanting to be a drow ranger, this book made me quickly change that wish from drow ranger to Rashemar berserker! Great book, good characters, only one gripe---Liriel always seems to have Lloth's favor when, in my opinion, she is a renegade like Drizzt. The whole part of Liriel simply deciding not to follow Lloth and regaining control of herself was a bit too far-fetched and underdeveloped. I am eagerly awaiting the continuing saga of Fyodor and his Wychlaran/Drow mate.
