The Lady has spoken to me.
It has already begun.
Shadows move out of the shrinking desert, south to the rich and arrogant cities of Sembia.
"Be brave, little man," says the shadowman, and the boy thinks his voice is surprisingly soft. "Stay with your mother. This will be over soon." The shadows swallow him and he is gone.
On the edge of a war that will change the face of Faern, the world will find that not all shadows serve Shade.

This book was very slow to get started, but picked up a little into the story. Therefore, I gave it an average rating since it almost lost me in the beginning.
Yes, so far I have not been disappointed by Paul's writings.
John does well, but he has limited voice inflecions, so some characters sounded the same. It was not too bad, but noticable at times when certain characters spoke to one another.
I like the Forgotten Realm stories. The Drizzt books have been published out of order on Audible, so that series unfortunatley lost it's appeal (it's hard to read a book, then go back). That is why I tried this series and so far I've enjoyed them.
fantastic writing, and great narration. I love how the narrator changes his voice for different characters, and doesn't just drone on. I can't wait to start the next one. Just a great story.
To me this reads like a author who played Dungeons and Dragons too many times. The fantasy is so far out that the only thing you can really expect is that the next vignette will be as fantastic as the last. Why do people in the future speak in Old English?
