This is a favorite of a co-worker and other friends as well as my first foray into the Forgotten Realms series. The pacing starting a bit slowly for me; however, I attribute this to acclimating to the new world building and the writing style of a previously unread author. It always takes me a bit to fully immerse into new fantasy territory.
Book 1 is definitely a setup for what's to come and there are a slew of titles. I got progressively wrapped up in the story. There are great characters readers will love to hate, to cheer on and to grieve. I enjoyed this and plan to, at minimum, finish this first trilogy and possibly read further. I highly recommend the audiobook narrated by Victor Bevine.
Final rating: 4 out of 5 stars
