    "An Excellent Erevis Cale Story."

    The Dawn of Night is the second book of the Erevis Cale Trilogy, continuing the Sembian adventures Paul Kemp's main Forgotten Realms character. This book deals with Cale and his companions chasing a band of evil creatures on a mission for an evil Arch-mage who is trying to gain world controlling power. he is also dealing with the changes made in him in book one, which transformed him into a Shade, an Avatar of the God of Shadows, Mask. With the help of his companions, he chases the evil creatures into the Underdark, to that den of Villainy, Skullport, where the battle continues in an epic confrontation, with a betrayal costing the party dearly.
    The plotting is solid, with some seriously interesting elements that really bring the story to life. Erevis's new Shade abilities are quite powerful, but they come at a cost. The question is, how much is he willing to pay? The characters are fleshed out some more, especially Riven the Assassin and Jak Fleet the Halfling. The villains are well thought out, and you root against them the whole book. I am really looking forward to reading the Third book. This book should appeal to fans of RA Salvatore's Drizzt Books.

    "And?!?"

    The book was narrated well, but the story lacked real substance. The books in this trilogy should have been just one big book.

    Story
    "Three books that should of fit into one."
    Would you try another book from Paul S. Kemp and/or John Pruden?

    Yes


    Would you recommend Dawn of Night to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, but you have to work for it.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yes of course


    Any additional comments?

    three books into one. They should do a book that focus on just the politics of Hell.

    Story
    "Sequel doesn't deliver"

    In spite of very uneven writing and the continuous, excessively testosterone laden interchanges, the first book of the Erevis Cale series had enough of a mystery and character development to make me want to read the second book. What a mistake!! The sequel filled in some of the background story, but in more of a “tell” not “show” kind of way, and it had none of the mystery of the first book, only constant obsession with killing the Slaadi and endless, tedious, bloody descriptions of what the characters were going to do to each other when they got ahold of each other. I gave up after the first few chapters, when I realized my mind was wandering and I was forcing myself to listen. Too bad, the first book could have used a good editor, but it had promise. The narration was too slow and a bit ponderous for my taste, but otherwise good enough.

    Story
    "Not as engaging as the first"
    If you could sum up Dawn of Night in three words, what would they be?

    Not nearly as much story and information as book 1.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Eh. As many books of a trilogy it was inconclusive but not really pulling the reader in for book 3.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This was a book I wanted to listen to in one sitting because I thought it would go somewhere. Unfortunately, I have to agree with other readers that say these three books should really be one large book.
