My bad for not knowing right away that this book took place pretty much during the events in book 2. While Arilyn is a nice character she and both Danilo seem to suffer when not together. I couldn't really get into the story. Who cares about some elves in the woods with humans encroaching? The bit about her sword was nice but more of a side story.
I still like Elaine Cunningham as a writer but this book didn't help the cause. Really, not much happened.
Eric Michael Summerer does Danilo the best. Really, a nice job with all the characters but Danilo sounds epic.
Not made for t.v.
I'm going through all five books in the series and so far this is the worst one. I am not sure how it ties in (if at all). But, I would recommend skipping this if you can. Very little to do with book 2 and book 4 is a stand alone.
