Wow! I'm a HUGE fan of Salvatore's other books - I've read the 30-ish books in the Drizzt series as well as his 3-book series "The Crimson Shadow" - but this one might top them all! Firstly, to my surprise, it doesn't even feel like Salvatore's other works, except for some of the descriptions of certain fight scenes. The story and characters are so original. How can an author be so prolific and yet not feel like he is getting repetitive?? Anyway, this is a work of sheer beauty that had me physically nervous and exultant at several points. The narration is also top notch. I recommend this book very, very highly.

A nail-biting emotional roller coaster
While listening to this novel unfold, I found myself thinking of the ruthlessness of Game of Thrones in a musical backdrop of Gene Pitney's "Town Without Pity" and the thrills and chills of some frightening Dean Koonz constant foreboding doom.
An odd book in many ways but, to the end, very satisfying.
