Clayton Emery ´ 4 Summary

Urse playing fair is a concept as alien to the wizards of Netheril as mercyBut the subject of their wager Sunbright Steelshanks of the Rengarth Tribe has a mind and a will of his own And Candlemas and Sysuemalyn are not the only players in this lethal game of swords and sorcery.. This is the first novel I ve read that s tied directly to the Dungeons Dragons multiverse and according to the lists I found online is the first chronologically in the extensive Forgotten Realms library I think knowing beforehand how campy a lot of the material from first and second edition DD can be increased my enjoyment of Sword PlayI started reading these books in an attempt to get a feel for the world and lore that makes up the Forgotten Realms Taking that approach made this book very enjoyable I think if someone reads this book expecting it to be on par with Lord of the Rings they re probably going to be disappointed That being said I thought this book was a lot of fun I mean if you can t laugh about a main character s name being Sunbright Steelshanks you may be taking this particular branch of the fantasy genre seriously than it may have ever been intended to be takenIs some of the dialogue bordering on or even crossing over into terrible Yes Are the fight scenes over the top and sometimes ridiculous like Saturday morning cartoons from the late 70s and early 80s Absolutely But I think that s what makes this book and maybe even this entire fantasy subgenre so enjoyable for me thus far It made this 42 year old guy feel like a kid again I can t find anything wrong with thatStick around for future reviews to see if my thoughts about this particular line of books changes or if the campy holds its enchantment for This Aaron Guy Only time will tell if the enjoyment holds as I make it further into the Forgotten RealmsUntil next time stay safe and above all be true to yourselfThat Aaron Guy
