Oo Oi! as Pikel would say. This is a great book. A lot of the loose ends are tied up leaving just one hanging, but enough of one apparently to continue on with the series. Less full of action than the second book, but it goes into great detail about Cadderly and his gaining power. His doubt as to what is happening to him, his doubts about his god. This series has been phenomenal so far, and I truly look forward to reading the rest of it. Once again the Battle scenes are spectacular (do you expect anything less of Salvatore?) but this time its Cadderly's turn to excel, the way Salvatore discribes his magic is just sensational. This series has gotten better and better with every book. Don't miss this one.

This is the great moment the adventure leaves the castle and also the forest and turns to the city. And there a great adventure awaits our heroes! The prime enemy of this novel is Ghost, a villain with the ability to switch his corporeal form with other beings. To battle this creature, Cadderly has to outgrow himself, learn more then he ever wanted to know and draw strength from his love. This is a great enjoyable book indeed!

i have not read any of the other books in the quintet, but after reading this one i am going to read them all. I am not the type of person to sit down and spend all my time reading, mainly because i don't have time, but i started to read this book, and i just keep on reading. i was done in two days. The thing i like most about this book is the Ghearufu. If you wanna know what it is then read the book, you'll love it

Very good. I've read the first 3 books, and, while all of them where great, this was the best. I miss the Castle Trinity politics, and Drojin getting beaten by Cadderly (both regular features of the first 2) but this is still great.

HASH(0xa23304d4) von 5 Sternen Are you afraid of Ghost? 5. August 2004
Von Hexameron - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book launches the Cleric Quintet characters even further than the second book did. This is where Cadderly's major character change occurs. In the previous books, Cadderly was a struggling self-doubting and inexperienced boy. He thought himself useless to his friends, and in Sylvan Shadows, he leaves Danica because he was afraid (he admits this in the book). Now, though, Cadderly finds a new purpose for himself and rekindles his relationship with Danica and his friends. He survives against gigantic odds and political intrigue. The entire time, he has no idea how many people are looking to kill him, and yet he manages to escape and fight back.

R.A. Salvatore is successful in weaving a complex and suspenseful story, with amazing characters and interesting subplots. Ghost is a remarkable character. For those familiar with the Drizzt novels, just imagine what would happen if Ghost happened to meet the dark elf. Could Drizzt shield himself from the Ghearufu? Ghost and the Night Mask assassins present themselves as a tremendously evil force, and I often wondered if Cadderly and his friends could withstand them. At times, the story may seem like it drags, but I believe it was necessary to describe what Cadderly goes through in the Dragon's Codpiece. His ascension towards Deneir is quite a dramatic change in this series; Cadderly now has unfathomable powers that will only keep growing.

If you enjoyed the previous books in this series, or even if you didn't but want to know what happens after Sylvan Shadows, I recommend reading this book. It is the turn of the tide in the Cleric Quintet series, and the last few chapters of the book are quite spectacular.

HASH(0xa2379b88) von 5 Sternen Salvatore did it again! 21. April 1998
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I don't know how he does it. He just does. This book is everything a reader could ask for. There is conspiricy (in my not so humble opinion), suspence, action, and if you like that sort of thing, romane (luckily, not too much.) This book, book 3 in the Cleric Quintet, is a turning point for the main charactor and the plot. Each book is a story in itself, yet the whole series is like a humongo book, too large to be print entirely, so broken in 5 parts. I think it is a great book-and that is an understatement!

HASH(0xa237a258) von 5 Sternen A true work of Mature Fantasy 29. August 2001
Von John Heath - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I, like many others, am enamored with the writings of R.A. Salvatore, everything from the Demonwars series to the classic Drizzt Novels, but the Cadderly Series, and this book in particular, has something that none of his other books have. Maturity. The Depth of Evil that the Ghearfu is, and its master, Ghost, contains, is truly horrifying, and the new characters are fully fleshed out. In addition, Salvatore pulls no punches when it comes to main characters, he doesn't hold back when their death is needed for plot developement. The magic in this book is also descibed as it never has been before, making the arcane arts and divinity so much more impressive. However, the quality of this book that I am most impressed by was the love between Cadderly and Danica. I admit, as a semi-hopeless Romantic I'm a sucker for this sort of thing, but the way the romance and resulting actions were described was so perfect, that I was deeply moved. In short, many of Salvatore's works, while good, are easily forgettable. This book will remain with me throughout my life. I urge those of you who are on the brink of buying this book, and this whole series, to do so. It is a magnificent work of modern fiction, and the best That Salvatore has ever written.
HASH(0xa237a5ac) von 5 Sternen An avatar against a ghost? 12. Juni 2008
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Night Masks picks up from the end of the last one in the series, In Sylvan Shadows, and refers to a ruthless band of assassins. The Night Masks have been tasked with killing Cadderly, a priest of Deneir...ironically hired to do so by Allabaster, an evil mage who, unbeknownst to Cadderly, is Cadderly's father.

Cadderly, meanwhile, has gone to Carradoon, fleeing the violence left behind in the elven woods of Shilmista, and his friends who have no qualms about killing monsters. The friends are, namely, Danica (a human warrior monk who is Cadderly's lover), and the Bouldershoulder Brothers (Pikel and Ivan, two hardy and fearless dwarves).

For his efforts against the evil Castle Trinity, Cadderly has been marked for death. The Night Masks are led by a cruel, dangerous and ruthless man, known only by the name of Ghost. Through the use of a powerful artifact, Ghost has the ability of being able to trade bodies with others (usually against their will), which makes killing others incredibly easy. Of course, he's never tried killing a powerful priest before.

Cadderly struggles at first with his guilt over his role in killing others, and questions his faith in Deneir. Yet as he reads more of Deneir's holy book, he comes to recognize his budding powers, and accept that he has become a vessel for his deity.

While Salvatore does well, as usual, pacing the story and filling the book with memorable characters, helping us understand Cadderly's inner struggles and introducing us to powerful clerical magic, one aspect of the series does perturb me, somewhat. At one point, Cadderly is told "You are not invincible. You are not all-powerful. You are not a god." Yet despite this warning, and I feel it is Salvatore speaking directly to the reader at that point, Cadderly becomes very god-like. His ascension is meteoric, and he is soon wielding powers which high priests would be hard pressed to duplicate. In short, I believe he fell into the writer's trap of making Cadderly too powerful too quickly. The reader is then left wondering, with 2 books in the series to go, how can Cadderly progress/develop further, given his current god-like powers?

For all that, it is an excellent book, which I highly recommend.

Night Masks, Book 3 of the Cleric Quintet - R. A. Salvatore
A Review
Hmmm. I shall make my feelings on the Cleric Quintet known right now: it is a strictly mediocre fantasy series. Nothing special. Salvatore is a very good writer, though. He wrote the Demon series, (As I write this review, I am currently reading the first book in the series, The Demon Awakens, and it is exceptional. Very promising. I shall soon write a review on that book as well.), the Crimson Shadows series (I haven't read any of those books), and the Icewind Dale Trilogy and Dark Elf Trilogy of the Forgotten Realms line of role-playing fantasy books. The Cleric Quintet is also part of the Forgotten Realms. This series, however, would never have been published as a stand-alone series, though. It introduces nothing new to the reader, the characters are dull and uninspired (even immature, to some extent), and is written in the typical R. A. Salvatore format that I have grown to dislike.
About this book, though, the third novel in the series, I read this one with considerably more enjoyment that the other two. It featured an interesting, challenging villian, and a plot more unique that the other books in the series. In addition to that, the two main characters' (Cadderly and Danica) relationship blooms into maturity. (In other words, they end up "doing it!" For those rigid, unmoving readers out there, though, don't worry: no actual eroticism in this book. Or the entire series, for that matter.) Like all the other novels in the Cleric Quintet, there is no interesting or even significant character development.
I think I'll cut this review short, because my opinion on the series is (or should be, if you're reading this) obvious by now, and no one wants to read why I think this series is such a mediocre waste of time. What about Salvatore's writing style, though? There is nothing unique about that, nothing that could even be called sophisticated.
If you've read my other two reviews on the previous two books, you'll know what to expect with the series, but, despite all my determined ranting, it is still pretty good to read, with exciting battles, and unexpected occurences. That, perhaps, is why this series isn't half bad. One does not know what to expect when reading it. That, though, perhaps, might be because no one cares enough to bother anticipating what will occur next in the book. . .
