What a rideAgain strong character development interspersed with deep and varied Realsmlore makes Kemp s writing style highly addictive In my view he is a masterful bottom up storyteller who draws you in with an intense focus on character Setting is a function of the characters s journey and in this instance as in all of the Cale books I ve read thus far it really engagesAs a big Realms fan I throughly appreciate Paul s attention to detail in fleshing out areas that scream for the spotlight Examples in this book include Skullport and The Skulls Starmantle The Weave Tap and Elgrin Fau to name a fewA Realms fan be you Read this you must

review Dawn of Night Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB The shadows recede from a lost temple in a forgotten wildernessThe sun rises on a new calling for a man as loyal as. Erevis Cale and his allies have survived a confrontation with the slaadi servants of the enigmatic Sojourner but now find themselves lost on the Plane of Shadow with no way home Meanwhile Azriim and his fellows seek to execute the next part of the Sojourner s plans and head for Skullport one of the darkest and most dangerous cities in the RealmsThe second volume of the Erevis Cale trilogy picks up immediately after the first book and once again pits Cale and his band of willing and not so willing heroes against Azriim and his fellow slaadi The first novel Twilight Falling was entertaining but also suffered from clunky writing and some bad pacing Dawn of Night is a notable improvement with a notable focus on the battle of wills between Cale and his sometimes ally Riven to prove themselves the better man The prose is polished though still prone to odd lapses and there s also a satisfying amount of weirdness invoked when Cale and his friends find themselves lost on the Plane of Shadow Skullport one of the most vividly memorable locations in the Forgotten Realms setting is also brought to life in all its sualid grubby splendourAs well as the CaleRiven rivalry the book also brings into play several other interesting devices The duality of having two adventuring bands diametrically opposed to one another is an interesting touch and Kemp imbues each character with their own uirks and motivations that fleshes them out nicely It s not the deep seated characterisation of modern masters of fantasy but it s enough to make the book interesting than the average tie in novel Kemp also takes an interesting approach to magic which is so codified by rules and structures since it is based on the DD magic system that it s use has become routine and even perfunctory This depiction may be slightly dull the wonder of someone unleashing a powerful magical spell in another book is here totally missing but it also makes sense in a world where the use of magic has become routine over the course of thousands of yearsOn the minus side the book suffers somewhat from middle book syndrome there is no beginning or end which is to be expected and there are moments when the setting s game origins are again laid bare such as being able to tell when the characters have succeeded at making a saving roll against a spell These are much less freuent than the first novel but still a little wince inducing when they happenOverall Dawn of Night represents a notable improvement over the first book in the series It s still at heart an adventurous romp with an unusually conflicted band of heroes as its sole major twist which is less of a twist now than when the book originally came out but remains an entertaining read
