Ed's writing style does take a minute to get used to. I was always a fan of 19th century English literature before I began my journey through the Realms so i was able to adapt rather quickly...and now I'm hooked!

I also want to get around to reading Thomas Reid's "The Empyrean Odyssey."

And I'm also wandering (since I've read the War of the Spider Queen), are there any other novels about the Jaezred Chaulsiin/Patron Fathers?

Not that I knew of... If any, then maybe a glimpse in Lady Penitent (been a while since I read it), but nothing relevant.

While the forum has been down i've read Blackstaff Tower, by Stephen E. Schend, and Mistshore, by Jaleigh Johnson. Loved both of them.

Just started Downshadow, by Erik Scott de Bie, and so far it is extremely good.

I haven't gotten the chance to read The Lady Pentinent Yet. I plan on it but i want to read Starlight and Shadows first. Right now I'm working on The Last Mythal. Taking me a minute to get into it though since i also decided the same day to replay through Dragon Age: Origins so i'm trying to split my time somewhat. Unfortunately, or fortunately, I find myself being pulled toward Dragon Age tho. I'm almost done with it though so then i'll be back to the realms.

Please let me know what you think of the Lady Penitent. This is also on my "to read" list

Will do entreri3478. I ran into an old friend of mine today that says it's really a must read if you've read War of the Spider Queen. And for those who haven't gotten the chance yet, I suggest picking up The Legend of Drizzt Anthology: The Collected Stories. All the Drizzt short stories gathered into one volume with introductions to each by R.A. Salvatore himself. I haven't read all the stories yet, and I mostly picked it up for "Guenhwyvar", but after skimming through it, it looks really intriguing. And happened to get lucky enough to acquire Neverwinter Book II for $12.00! How amazing is that!!

Just finished Downshadow, by Erik Scott di Bie, and really liked the book. I would highly recommend it. However, I have to ask does the cover have anything to do with any of the content in the book?

It was quite good, however, I thought that the 3rd book of the trilogy had a extremely rushed ending that took the shine off the series. All it needed was either a 4th book to the series or an extra 100 pages or so, in order for the book to have the ending it deserved.

I do agree that you should only read the Lady Penitent series only after reading the War Of The Spider Queen Series.

Just finished Swords of Dragonfire by Ed....I really like the Knights, but the books are so random seeming! The last half of the book where they just keep slaughtering innocent Purple Dragons in/under the Royal court to get word to Vandergahast is just...odd. I love Ed's work regardless, but now reading Sword that Never Sleeps and hoping for a satisfying conclusion. My fave part of the Swords trilogy so far has been the first few chapters of Swords of Eveningstar. Fantastic stuff there.

Shimmergloom was either a Shadow Dragon or an extra dark Black Dragon

I liked the Lady Penitent series... a lot! There have been quite a lot of people who were bothered about what happened to the pantheon, as some kind of prequel to 4e. But I cannot help it, I liked the series nevertheless. Especially book 2. Seems I got a nag for the middle books...

I guess I should update my status on realms novels. I've read them all thus far (except Erik Scott de Bie's e-only novel, which is making me ask for a Kindle for x-mas just for that...)
Otherwise, I have read the other non-FR novels about the Abyssal Plague, and am now catching up on reading my old FR sourcebooks (I own most but am working on reading them all).

Respect Alisttair! Guess there are not many here who can say so.

So.. lots of idle time to resurrect Karsus until new novels are published?

Indeed.

The very thought alone of reading those that I deliberately avoid [and would rather not enumerate] almost awakens the Nevron in me.

Hehe! Dennis in your case this certainly means all novels that contain the word 'elf' (unless it is 'dead elf')?! :-)

There are exceptions to that rule, albeit very few.

Oh worry not, Karsus will return, I'm sure its in the plans of Ao....he'll get his novel....he'll be the one to stop the Abyssal Plague even and cross over into all the realms.

Just finished "Ring of Winter". Good novel, really liked it. It is the "lighter" old school style.

Don't know yet what to read next. The only thing that really still motivates me, is Godborn....

Finished the Last Mythal a couple of days ago. Very good series IMO. Gonna break from the Realms for a little while and read Tom Holt's Falling Sideways next and the gonna try out the Star Wars: Darth Bane Trilogy...then gonna jump back into the Realms with either Return of the Archwizards or Haunted Lands.

I am not really in the mood to delve into newer FR novels. So I am just rereading a couple. Right now it's Unholy, the conclusion to Richard Lee Byers's The Haunted Lands Trilogy.
