This is the first book that I read from the Forgotten Realms. It was a very good book. It was a bit slow to start off with, but once I got to page 75, things started to pick up and it was hard to put the book down. ( )

Read several times and will be read again and again.
Some poor characters who just don't seem to get any slack but it all works out (to an extent) at some point.
After reading this the first time many moons ago I immediately started the hunt for the following book(s) afraid to leave the characters unattended for too long.
Couldn't put it down! Relieved the journey didn't stop. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. I've read it several times I liked it so much. This novel is set in the Forgotten Realms, a game world for the Dungeons and Dragons game. The setting was invented by the author, Ed Greenwood, and it really shows in his writing, as his creation of the world down to the smallest details is complete and complex.
A young girl discovers she has a very unique power. She can hurl magical power without casting spells, something normally impossible in the Forgotten Realms. This power immediately makes her a target for a number of factions wanting this power, and leads her and some powerful new friends on a very improbable adventure. If you enjoy fantasy fiction, especially Dungeons and Dragons based fantasy, you should enjoy this book. If you are a rules purist, just ignore the Dungeons and Dragons background and enjoy the story. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
This one's for all who have brought the Realms to life over the years: To Jenny, Andrew, Victor, John, Ian, Jim, Anita, Cathy, Dave, Ken, Tim, and Kim. And to new-found friends who have joined the ride: Jeff, Mary, and Bruce; well met! It hasn't always been easy being Elminster, but it's been worth it.
First words
It was a good inn, but sometimes Shandril hated it.
