But, honestly, I'm coming to terms with the fact that all "Forgotten Realms" books written in the 90's outside of Salvatore I must add that this book actually had a fairly large amount of 'history of the realms' in it, which is why I started reading these books in the first place. I chock it up to one of the main characters being a 'travel writer' and he's sposs to know a lot about a lot of things.
Secondl This was, once again, kind of a let down. Secondly, for the most part, the writing was fairly decent. However, I feel like this statement may be misleading. The plot was pretty flacid, even without the huge Alexander Dumas ripoffs which the author states he is doing right in the dedications, so I can't really hold that against him. There is very little resolution, the climax is very ANTI-climactic, and the set up to the story is choppy and too long. But what I ment to say about the writing, is that Thomsen is not completely inept at using the English language.
With that said, there were at least 2 HUGE blunders in the writing that I have never seen before in a book, not even a lowly "Forgotten Realms" book. Fisrt, Thomsen has painstakingly told us that the iron mask is completely magically form fitted.
But the character with in can "wipe the persperation from his brow". And in the very next chapter he says that a blind man "watched the perpelexed looks on his companion's faces". I must say that my own look was perplexed at this screw up. Anyways, I shouldn't just talk shit. I mean, I did read the whole book. The characters were pretty interesting, even though there seemed like there was too many for the length of the book.
The point is, I got another one finished! Sep 09, P. Aaron Potter rated it did not like it Shelves: fantasy.
On the one hand, the idea of adapting Alexandre Dumas to the Forgotten Realms is kind of appealing. On the other hand, Thomsen's inability to keep dropping literary allusions, or anachronistic puns, into the book was so constantly jarring, I hurled this sucker aside more than once in annoyance, wishing the author were nearby so I could hit him with the book. Nov 08, Stuart Schneider rated it really liked it. Really just below a 4 star rating. Again, there was a flaw that required a suspension of disbelief involving magic that really ruined the ending for me.
I'm really enjoying the "The Nobles" series of books. They are a cross between Politics and Fantasy. This on has many interesting characters and the story is will told. Sep 16, Hyann rated it it was ok. Another alternate story of the well-known Man in the Iron mask… another subpar novel. Thompson writing is light and fun, but the plot is too easy with no surprise or stunning twist. Most characters have no depth and poor background.
The prisoner with is Iron Mask is in a cell when a rock on the Another alternate story of the well-known Man in the Iron mask… another subpar novel.

War cares little for the troubles of the aristocracy. As a terrible new weapon obliterates the age of courtly battle, an intelligent but plain princess and her companions--an addled young inventor and a kleptomaniac firebird--find themselves forced into a battle for survival in a suddenly very deadly world.
The Simbul, Storm-queen of Aglarond, is unhappy. Though she has triumphed over her enemies, she lacks an heir to the throne - a child to love and nurture. But now she's found the perfect father for her child: Elminster, the old mage of Shadowdale. All she has to do is win his consent. And she has the perfect gift with which to accomplish this: A mysterious colt called Zandilar's Dancer.
