Good but not exceptional
This is a good book with a GREAT narrator. The story itself is interesting enough as Salvatore puts an atypical spin on fantasy book. There is part of me that liked the fact that the book did not follow the traditional path of the hero rising from nothing to defeat the warlock and save the damsel in distress. There is also part of me that wanted a bit more of the "WOW" factor however, I must applaud Salvatore for taking a step outside the box and not falling on his face. I was hoping for some sort of sequel but it looks as if this is stand alone story. As I said above. Good read but definitely not great.

Just not my cup of tea.
I love Salvatore and this is the first book in which I just couldn't get into. This may because I know him so well for Drizzt and his adventures. I think if you like alterative universe style books then you should enjoy this book. I do recommend Salvatore to Sci-Fi and Fantasy fans to try.
