R city needs to save its champion from those who would see both brought low Ed Greenwood beloved author and creator of the Forgotten Realms presents the first book in a brand new series dedicated to showcasing both the City of Splendors and our most t A fantasy in the classic sense the villains are mindlessly evil wizards the heroes are either dashing charismatic rogues 3 or 4 of them beefy warriors just the one for now or beautiful sorceresses 2 of them and every obstacle seems tailored specifically to the abilities of the hero trying to overcome them to the point where it feels contrivedAbsolutely no one grows or learns from their experiences with the possible exception of Vajra whose character development we have to mostly infer because so much of it happens while she is either comatose or insaneWorst of all the villains could not have succeeded even if the heroes had done nothing In fact part of the reasons one of the bad guys gets so far is because he steals an artifact from the heroes that he had no other way of getting without it he would have been killed by magical traps that he was literally under magical compulsion to trip The heroes need to intervene as a result but if they had stayed out of it from the start nothing of value would have been lostAside from all that it s okay I guess It s a familiar style of fantasy so it feels comfortable like an old couch and the writing and dialog are alright Actually if you play DnD and plan to run the Waterdeep Dragon Heist module I consider this reuired reading several WDH nonplayer characters come directly from this book and the story gives you some insight into who they are and how they interactOsco the Halfling is a useless waste of a character though and the book was worse for having him in it

A Call for Heroes A young group of friends stumble across a terrifying conspiracy that holds the heir to the Blackstaff the defender of the city of Waterdeep in terrible danger These friends must search deep within themselves to become the heroes thei Right now I sit at my in laws It is 10PM CST and I have just set down Blackstaff Tower finishing it s Epilogue with a great smile on my face This book and Mistshore by Jayleigh Johnson are the first books to give us an inside view of Waterdeep The City of Spenldors as it appears in the 4th Edition of Dungeons and Dragons Now I hope that last statement does not turn anyone off to this wonderful tale Whether you love or hate the changes to DD or the Forgotten Realms this book is well worth readingAfter the shock that hit me during the Prologue it was actually about two days before I was able to move onto Chapter One but for that I do truly blame work I fell in love with Renaer Neverember He reminded me of me which one always sees as a positive when picking up a new book Renaer likes to know things he researches he collects but in the end it s all about the knowledge and its what makes a differenceNow for those who are coming in fresh Khelben Arunsun is dead He died in the year 1374 The Year of Lightning Storms while participating in a ritual of high magic to bring about the City of Hope Rhymanthiin Upon his death Tsarra Chaadren took up the mantle of the Blackstaff leading us into the whirlwind that begins this book I ll avoid the history lesson further while I may post some later except to say at the beginning of the book Samark Dhanzscul is the fifth to hold the title of BlackstaffI went into reading this book sitting of the opinion that I was reading it purely for information I had no interest whatsoever in what has happened to the Realms I was expecting the same rich and informative writing that Steven has brought to us in his previous novel Blackstaff and his other game materials I went into this book hoping to see the history of Tsarra Chaadren Well what can I say except that I was thrown for a loopSteven has continued to impress me with his fiction writting as opposed to game writing which tends to blur together at times His references to minor characters of the Realms past have always driven me to research I like knowing what I m reading about and this book was no exception How many people can make me constantly wonder about a penguinAs for information on Tsarra It s there but as I previously mentioned the book begins with the fifth Blackstaff it was a small shock to me but knowing how some things have been torn apart recently it wasn t completely unexpected The fact that her history was still gotten across decently with her being deceased for such a long time was impressiveNow I get back to my previous mentioning about the Forgotten Realms of 4th Edition Dungeons and Dragons I had no interest in it and still have very minor interests Upon finishing this book not only do I want to do some research on some of the mentioned characters but I want to dive straight into Misthore re read this book and am seriously considering checking out the rest of the Ed Greenwood presents Waterdeep seriesMy only complaint on this book is it seems too short It s wet my appetite and I want The characters were all intriguing and I would love to see Steven write about them They are far too interesting to be left aloneI give this book a 5 out of 5 It is by far one of the best pieces of fiction that was not a seuel that I have read this year It also includes something unseen in most current fantasy books a GlossaryBravo Steven As Ed Greenwood says in his introduction I couldn t wait to read it the first time through and when I was done I couldn t wait to read it again
