It was once suggested to me by a source who will remain nameless that many of the changes these books made to the setting were done without much consulting with the other authors; a few works in progress had to be changed if not all but scrapped to account for the new state of things. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Descriptions are often crude, transitions abrupt, characters ra After hearing so much about this trilogy, I came to it with probably unreasonably high expectations, and was definitely let down.
Nov 01, B. Shadowdals thought I had scored a find. Fotgotten, who is destined to become the future Mystra had potential to be more interesting, yet her romance and sudden feelings for the womanizing, apparently self-serving, and disrespectful Kelemvor is also random and does not come off as being natural and true, but felt forced.
The characters are all inconsistent and bipolar, randomly doing and feeling things with no discernible motive whatsoever apart from exposition, I mean. I really have no problem with it.

Going into this, I was concerned, but I decided that due to my appreciation of the Forgotten Realms’ Pantheon, that if I were to read an Forgotten realms book it should be from the Avatar series. Incoherent, trite, poor characterization. Wait that would be a huge spoiler, sorry.
As a result, the head of the gods, Ao, has stripped the gods of their godhood; and magic has become unstable, until those tablets are returned. Shadowdale is the work of a fledgling author writing under one assumes less-than-ideal conditions.
No esperaba mucho de esta novela fodgotten el resultado ha sido peor. Written while he was in his mids, Shadowdale was Scott’s first published novel and in many ways, it shows. These first books are classics, without doubt, but reading them today, they’re just not that good. I decided to relive my youth by reading books from my past. Great start to the series.
