    Young noble Luthien Bedwyr is too privileged to understand that his once-proud land, Eriador, suffers under the demonic oppression of Wizard-King Greensparrow. Until the day Luthien seeks justice for a friend's murder---only to become a fugitive fleeing the king's monstrous cyclopian soldiers. Befriended by the irrepressible "highwayhalfling" Oliver deBurrows, and enlisted by an ancient, mysterious mage, Luthien's exile will become an enchanted quest to steal a mystic prize from a dragon's hoard.

    Entertaining, funny , a little predictable

    Realizing that nobody else will take charge, and with the support of both dwarves and elves, Luthien and his followers stage guerilla raids on town after town. Luthien and his forces defeat scores of enemies and win huge numbers of allies. In the end, King Greensparrow sues for peace. Yet Luthien and Brind'Amour recognize that even in this time of celebration, Greensparrow cannot be trusted, and that the rumblings of a larger battle---for the freedom of the known world---loom in the not-too-distant future.

    Entertaining story, exceptional narrator

    In Volume One of the Crimson Shadow series, young Luthien Bedwyr rebelled against the vicious rule of Wizard-King Greensparrow and his cruel wizard-lords. In Volume Two, he made use of a magical cape that renders its wearer invisible---except for a lingering crimson silhouette.

    Now, the evil Greensparrow is back - and with a vengeance. Using dark, hideous magic, Greensparrow has taken the form of a massive dragon - a virtually unstoppable force that only Luthien can defeat.

    Not as good as the previous ones

    No. Salvatore has other books that offer much more.
