No worries. I've had to put off purchasing my copy this week. I had too many other books to buy before it's release here.

Is there going to be a "The Sword Never Sleeps" thread soon?

Yes. I'll get to that early next week, unless Alaundo opens them first. But I'll need the number of chapters for the book, and whether it has both a prologue and epilogue [though, I'll assume that's already the case since the last two books in the "Knights of Myth Drannor" trilogy also had them].

I just got my copy (of The Sword Never Sleeps) through the post. It seems to be 24 Chapters with both a prologue and epilogue. I hope that helps, Sage.

Hi Sage,

I'm reading Shadowrealm at the moment and was wondering why the scrolls for it were missing, so if you need some more information in order to open them, here it comes: Shadowstorm hast 17 chapters and an epilogue, there's no prologue.

hello all just wondering if there's any plan to discuss a new/old novel in the book club forum? as the last one's seem to be discussed was Shadowrealm in may and Unholy in April


I like reading the questions and posts of the other readers I never thought of asking and the interesting answers of the authors it throws up, it's really cool

Any plans to un-sticky some of the 'older' stickied scrolls?

Don't know if this will be interesting for someone but I stumbled across this WOTC forum when looking to discuss Ebberron Novels, I've just read the left hand of death and thought it was really good anyway its a book club forum for all WOTC settings including the Realms it looks fairly new

I think Susan j Morris has something to do with it,sorry if I posted this in the wrong place

Yes that makes it difficult with over a page of adhesive!

Unbroken CHain is a stand alone.

Captive Flame can be read by itself, but features a few characters(including Aoth The Leader of The Brotherhood of the Griffin) that originated in Richard Lee Byers Haunted Lands Trilogy : Unclean, Undead and Unholy (the order of those three may be wrong!)

The order is right, Red Walker.

Tremaine, I highly recommend you read The Haunted Lands Trilogy before reading The Captive Flame. You'll understand more Aoth's (the main protagonist) plight. Also, if you like Thay and Szass Tam, then that's the right/best trilogy to read.

Richard provided certain allusions to the HL trilogy in The Captive Flame, but very few and do not necessarily touch the novel's plot; for me they're there primarily to "promote" the said series.

I can relate, Tremaine. I think I bought and read Agents of Artifice after Unclean, though I already had "Undead" and "Unholy" at that time.

Sage, I think it's about time to discuss the classics, too.

I wouldn't mind reading the old novels opps I mean classics which ones do you have in mind? but i don't think i can handle more then two forgotten realm books a month as I want to read other novels not set in the realms (oh by the way i pass over Denning,Greenwood,Niles works there may be brilliant writer's but unfortunatly I could never just never get in their tale's the only one's i really enjoyed of them was Elminster the making of a mage, the puppet king,the last thrane and Crucible strangely the last one is one of my favourite realm tales lol)
