This is my digital copy of this book and half way through it. I had a hard copy, but very good now to have a kindle version.
What can I say of this book? One aspect I admire is the rise and fall of the neophyte mage, come dictator, in this book. It is a stunning portrayal of a life rejected, deceived and gone wrong. Life in the fantasy world is strange... this mage got what he wanted, but oh what a price! He hungered for power, killed his master for it, and ended up with the power he lusted for. Inevitably he falls just as his knife fell upon his former teacher.
Salvatore colors this book in a way that is easy to read, as you quickly go from chapter to chapter, racing faster as the story elements explode with clarity and brilliance! One comment: This book would be a great introduction to the fantasy (and D&D fantasy genre) world via novels. A good way to see what fantasy novels are all about. If you don't like the book... leave the last two in the trilogy alone. On the other hand, if this book excites you with its brightness and vividness.. then read on and enjoy the books of one of the best authors in the fantasy world!
