Publisher's Summary

With the demon dactyl and its foul minions defeated, the war-weary citizens of the kingdom of Honce-the-Bear wish only to begin rebuilding their broken lives. Yet the specter of civil war haunts the ravaged land - and a specter more fearsome still. For the demon, though defeated, was not destroyed. And now its vengeful spirit has found an unholy sanctuary.

The elf-trained ranger Elbryan Wynden presses north to reclaim the savage Timberlands from retreating goblin hordes. His companion, Pony, mistress of gemstone magic, turns south to the civilized - but no less perilous - streets of Palmaris. Suddenly they find themselves caught up in a ruthless power struggle to decide the fate of all Corona - a struggle that will push their courage and love to the breaking point...and beyond.

DOESN'T START AT CHAPTER 1 BEWARE

Great book, unfortunately Audible did not place the chapters in the correct order. go to chapter selection and start at Chapter 16 and fast forward about 5 minutes in so the ending isn't ruined for you like it was for me.

Ending lacking but still great.

Ending was a little anticlimactic and seemed like a series Ender even though there’s a ton more books. Wasn’t like I said god I have to get the next book to find out what happens.

A bit repetitive and predictable but still good

The book focuses on the conflict between the growing threat of the Abellican Church subordinating the king's rule through its ever-growing use and command of the magical stones, with Elbryan and Pony playing somewhat of secondary roles. The cavalier way that the Abbot Dalebert Markwart popped off promotions on a whim was disconcerting and Pony's careless and irresponsible decisions that led to devastating consequences diminished her stature in my eyes.

Still, I enjoyed this book and while the story continues, I've decided to be content with it as a trilogy.

R. A. Salvatore writing is still very much at his expected high tier level and Tim Gerard Reynolds narration is always entertaining to listen to.

classic Salvatore

Salvatore at his best. A change of pace from the drizzt novels. The ending was hard to listen to so I know I was very vested in the characters.

Great story, great voice actor

Tim Gerard Reynolds did a fantastic job narrating this book. Salvatore finished this part of the Saga off with typical skill and fantastic fight scenes. sad to see it end, but thankfully there's another trilogy! Looking forward to moving on.

wonderful

I love the voice of Tim Gerard Reynolds. The story line that R.A. Salvatore writes is always amazing, with wonderful details that make you feel as if you are there.

An absolutely Fantastic series!

I didn't think anything could compare to the Legend of Drizzt. I was surprisingly mistaken.

Oh a great writer matched by a great narrator.

Book 3 is amazing and sad there isn't another to the trilogy lol These three books had it all and will definitely be listening to them all again soon!

The best of the bunch

Out of the three books in the Demonwars Trilogy, this is the best. Reynolds gives a spectacular performance and while the plot borders on simplistic due to Salvatore's heavy-handed use of dramatic irony, it's entertaining and the characters generally sparkle and shine. I keep one star to myself only because of the misogynistic (and at times really baffling) portrayals of Pony's pregnancy.

Interesting if not heart breaking

Salvatore continues with a seamless transition from book 2 as our small band of heroes continues to battle a manifestation of the demon who possesses the leader of the church. Elbryan continues to battle the demon and his minions with the help of Pony and his band of dedicated outcasts. The story is very well written with another outstanding performance by Tim Gerard Reynolds but does get a bit tiresome as they continue to flee from the demon and his supporters.

The final battle is climatic and decisive, but difficult and heart rending. One observation is that the author is not hesitant to take chances as he does in this epic story, which has four more books to this saga recently released on Audible.

The overall story continues to evolve as the characters mature and new ones are introduced. Where it goes from here is fairly predictable but probably worth continuing, I think. We will see...
