A bit early, but I can confirm skulls safely I think. And a very definite circle...Skullport however, wellll....

...maybe think of other, less infamous (but not less dangerous)skulls.

Either way, I hope you find it enjoyable, a bit chilling, and, if you're a fan of Waterdeep, feel a bit more nervous about what goes on behind seemingly harmless closed doors in the City of Splendors....

You mean that one should stay clear of Pharra's Alley in your novel?

I would advise some caution in most of Waterdeep's alleys...

...though in certain alleys even well-advised caution will do one very little good

I loved Bloodwalk and SotWG........and am highly anticipating Skulls

My darkest? Well let's see...certain characters ("good guys" no less!) are definitely dark, monstrous even...and, hmmm...there are the scenes that I feared would not make it through edits, a certain plot point was dicey...

It could be my darkest, I'll let you guys decide. As for the darkest Realms book ever? I will definitely let you guys decide, heh...

...but let me know if you think so, because that would be supercool.

Hmmm... perhaps I need to read 'Circle of Skulls' -- after all, my longest-running PC has had more than a few encounters/discussions with this entity!

I'm over halfway through and I think I've read a few of the dicey scenes. You cheeky dog you!

A great read so far!

Many thanks! Very glad you enjoyed it. I must say, at first I had been mentioning the specific chapter to a few people where things get 'dicey', heh, but I stopped when I noticed that curiosity got the best of a few readers: they jumped ahead to skim, lol. So now I leave it a mystery to be found along the way.

Thanks again!
Best,
--James

PS: I do this once, and only once, per book and only here at Candlekeep, if you enjoyed the book and feel so inclined please stop by Amazon and drop a quick review, every little bit helps. :)

However, if reviewing is not your thing, just stop by here or over at any of my blog-areas (LJ, FB, etc.) and just say Hi, let me know what ya' think. I'm far more happy personally hearing from satisfied readers than racking up a ton of reviews (hence why I try to only ask once per book, heh!). Many thanks in advance and happy reading!

I jumped over to Amazon but apparently someone already wrote a huge review for the book. Good luck on your future projects! I'm starting The Restless Shore today.

Hello, I am looking for a copy of Bloodline a short story written for Wizard magazine in 2006 by James P Davis based on the world in the books Bloodwalk. Is this story by chance online or published anywhere so I can read it please?

I'm also interested in this. James P. Davis wrote a handful of Realms novels that I consider some of the unsung gems of the entire line. PM has been sent, George.

**EDIT** Check the 2nd PM, because I'm an idiot and didn't include my email address in the first one.
