Who would have thought that a book about a cleric could be this entertaining. But is Cadderly a true cleric? That is to be debated.

Cadderly along with his two dwarven friends, who I found quite funny, and his monk love interest are a great band of heroes and I cannot wait to read the second book in this series and see how the first debacle this group faced affects the rest of their adventures together.

4 1/2 stars from me. Salvatore shows that he is more than the guy who only knows how to write about the dark-elf.

Beyond words. The greatest first book of one of the greatest series.

From the back of the book:

"High in the Snowflake Mountains sits the Edificant Library, a place of scholarly study for priests, bards, and others. Now from the hidden vaults beneath the library a devistating curse is unleased, and a young cleric must battle the terrifying creatures set loose by a malevolent, consuming essence."

I don't remember the plot too well, but I enjoyed this one so much that I bought the second one, so I did really enjoy it.

Mr. Salvatore is at it again in bringing to us a new series of forgotten realms. This is a must read.

Excellent book! If you like R.A. Salvatore you will love this book! Even if you have never read any of his books this is a great starter!

Low reading. Trope'ish to the extreme. 2 dimensional characters frosted over with meaningless words in an attempt to give them depth. Blase.

I'll read the next book, but if it doesn't improve any, I'll be giving up on this series.

I own this and it's a great book. The first time I tried to read it wasn't the right time so it went above my head. I gave it a second shot and ended up finishing the series.
