Sadly, there is a third book in the series with apparently more of the same; fortunately I have another 6 years' worth of Forgotten Realms novels ahead of me before I encounter it. A smart person would be tempted to skip the really bad books in this line, but unfotunately I am not that person. View 2 comments. More polished but still has the problems of the first book. I think his manic pacing is just how Ed Greenwood sees his Realms and I'm just going to have to suck it up. The Good The Clone Wars. Mirt the Money Lender. The sad departure of Delg. Exploding Beholders. Exploding Liches. The Bad Torm and Rathan have overstayed their welcome.
Mirt is kind of a pervert. Endless battle after battle after battle after The Ugly Handling of the miscarriage was just crass. For shame, Sir. Dec 12, Scott Kirkland rated it liked it.
Probably the best in the trilogy. Now that's the critique for the game. The novel itself was like I said, the best in the trilogy. But unless you are a completionist and attempting to read the Forgotten Realms in chronological o Probably the best in the trilogy. But unless you are a completionist and attempting to read the Forgotten Realms in chronological order like me, then there's no need to focus on this story. It does include a few Elminster appearances though, so if you are approaching his story, then this might be required for you to see Elminster across multiple generations.

Definitely better than the original but still could have been better. At least this time there appeared to be more of a story instead of just a bunch of random battle sequences and meetings with personalities of the Realms. There is still plenty of whining and back-to-back battles but at least this time Shandril finally decides to take it to the enemy.

This is a step down from the first book in this series It puts those characters in a no-win situation, and then ends with a much too pat ending.
A bit better than the previous one. I have good hopes for the third book being worth 3 stars :P. Feb 23, Jesse rated it liked it Shelves: forgotten-realms. I didn't like this book as much as the first one, but I still like this series more than anything else I've read by this author. This book had a lot of the same cool characters from the first book and a few new ones, namely the lord of Eveningstar, Tessaril and Mirt the Moneylender, a lord of Waterdeep. There is not as much of Elminster, but he is definitely present. In this book the number one villians are the Zhents.
Manshoon is back, Fzoul is back, lots of Beholders, and some backstabbing within I didn't like this book as much as the first one, but I still like this series more than anything else I've read by this author. Manshoon is back, Fzoul is back, lots of Beholders, and some backstabbing within the Zhent's organization. Like the first book, there was alot of action and moving basicly from one incounter to the next which I don't really care for , but I liked this book.
There was some more history, which is what I really like. Shandril was pregnant, but then lost the baby during a crazy spellfire fight. Now, as morbid as this sounds, I hope that there is a point to that scene, 'cause why write it if it was pointless. I guess it could have pushed her over the edge and made her go attack the Zhents by herself which totally fails , but I don't know I am looking forward to the next, and last, book.

The Vacant Throne is the sequel in the Band of Four series. Aglirta is the land without a king and in the absence of leadership, this place fell into the worst times that perhaps it had ever been through. Gone was the harmony and prosperity of the land that once was, with chaos and lawlessness in its place. Even the baronies that were at war with each other may have to cease. After all, the land that has become so famous for not having a king may have to get a new nickname.
Royalty has come to grace the land once more, and hopefully with it will come a new era of abundance and peace for its people.

Perhaps the bad times are finally over. The land has a king once more, and now things will hopefully change. Things are about to fall into place with the return of the predicted savior of the land, the sleeping king of legend. The Band of Four has been amazingly successful in their attempts to recover the stone and awaken the king in the hopes of saving the land.
Just who are the band of four that could pull off this task? Hawkril is a warrior of great strength and boldness who can be relied upon on any mission. Craer is a thief whose wit is only outmatched by their craftiness. Sarasper is a healer that has spent years learning their craft. Lastly, Lady Embra Silvertree, the Lady of Jewels, serves as their magical aspect for she is a strong sorceress with quite a bit of power. The curse of the king has been lifted with the help of the stones. But will it take more than just these stones to get him on top of the throne that has sat empty for so long?
When devious barons are all too ready to challenge the king when it comes to the throne, he may just have to rise to the occasion and hopefully win out with the help of the trusted band of four. With dark forces waiting in the shadows to claim him if he falls, the king cannot afford to lose. Luckily, he has the Band of Four to help him claim the vacant throne and at last free Aglirta from the dark shadow that threatens to overtake it.
