Great Fantasy

For anyone who will not read a book because it has a Forgotten Realms/Dragonlance logo above the title, this is the book that can break that prejudice. This is a good fantasy novel period. This is Niles at his best. The very first Forgotten Realms novel is full of great characters and even greater action. Though it is billed as a trilogy, this story is a stand alone tale. After it sold well, Niles write 2 more stories and TSR packaged it as a trilogy. If you enjoy this story and trilogy, it is followed by a sequel--the Druidhome trilogy.

Awesome book - strong characters, strong plot

This is a re-issue of the first Forgotten Realms trilogy written. It's a bit surprising they didn't keep this series in print longer. Honestly, this is one of the best FR books I've read. The book opens with a fair where we meet the main characters; Robyn, Tristan, Daryth, and the moorhound, Canthus. As we get to know these characters (they are very deep - not exactly your infallible hero types) Kazgoroth makes his move to try to take over the Moonshae Isles. Along the way, our heroes are pulled into the struggle. The action increases and a few more characters are introduced, which are each also interesting in their own way. I love how Niles makes his characters come to life - even the minor ones. This is an action-packed read with deep characters - good and evil. This is a book that sets the standard for others in the FR realm - even among other fantasy novels period. This is an awesome book - highly recommended.


This is the BEST, "Forgotten Realms" series that I have read. The story transports you to a world of magic and adventure, entwines you in to the struggles of the heroes, and leaves you feeling fulfilled at the climax. What more can you ask for in a fantasy book?OVERALL SCORE: (A+)READABILITY: (A), PLOT: (B), CHARATERS: (A), DIALOGUE: (B+), SETTING: (A+), ACTION/COMBAT: (B+), MONSTERS/ANTAGONISTS: (B+), ROMANCE: (B+), SEX: (n/a), AGE LEVEL: (PG)

A must read Forgotten Realms series

I have read this series many times and it is still as good today as it was the first time I read it, almost 15 years ago.I think the plot is one of the more interesting in the fantasy genre. Tristan and Robyn along with many other interesting characters are trying to defend their Isle/Goddess from the attacks of an evil god and his minions. I enjoyed the fantastic creatures, especially the little Psuedodragon as the comic relief. I hope they re-issue this series so more people can enjoy this wonderful story filled with werewolves, unicorns, sea creatures, magic and intense battles.Find it or borrow it! A must read.

Awesome book, great to enter fantasy genre.

This is the first enjoyable fantasy book I read. I read it for a book report and loved it, and thanks to Mr. Niles I became I huge fantasy for all the years afterwards. I still remember the amazing characters: Tristan, Robyn, Daryth, and of course the evil Kazgoroth, the shape-changing demon-like creature that invades the Moonshae Isles. The characters are wonderful, the enemy horrific, and it has everything a good story needs: love, violence, evil, action, strange and horrible enemies and an ultimately evil enemy: Kazgoroth. I've read this several times, and it's always the same great story. I recommend that anyone who wants to read fantasy, but has read some bad ones in the past should check out this book and then see where it takes you. Excellent book.
