The following review was taken from beezermnethyn indexpI highly recommend this website for this and other fantasy author reviews Shadowrealm by Paul S Kemp is the third, and final, novel in the Twilight War Trilogy The first two books are Shadowbred and Shadowstorm If you have read the first two novels in this trilogy I also suggest that you read the short story Continuum by Mr Kemp that is in the Realms of War anthology While technically you need not have read it to understand anything that go [...]
This book is absolutely amazing Every book in this series is great though.
Ah, Shadowrealm If you ask me, and so many other people, this book has been a long time coming It sucked a whole bunch when it was pushed back from its tentative First Quarter 2008 release Things have changed considerably concerning my view and opinions of the Forgotten Realms, but in retrospect, pushing the novel back is a welcome thing, now As many of you know, I m not particularly vocal in my dislike of where the authors and designers have taken the Forgotten Realms in the 4e era Paul Kemp s [...]
Shadowrealm, by Paul S Kemp, is the conclusion of the Twilight War series, set in the Forgotten Realms While it shares most of the traits of the first two books, I liked this one both and less than them If finishes the story of Everis Cale, the Chosen of Mask and his dealing with the Shadowstorm as prophesied I m still not happy about the focus being shifted away from Everis and his friends to deal with lots of the new characters who, for the most part, are even larger pawns in the game being p [...]
Paul Kemp is on the level with R.A Salvatore Mask was and always has been one of the most intriguing Gods to follow and Paul has not disappointed I just found the wrap of one one of the major driving points from the first two books not weak but almost forgotten The overmistress and her build up seems for naught I was also hoping there would be a third fourth and fifth of Mask Although I guess Kesson Rel is technically the first chosen so only the fourth and fifth needed revealed Riven seems on t [...]
Full review at my blog Shadowrealm is the third and final volume of Paul S Kemp s excellent Twilight War series The deadly shadow storm rages accross the Sembian country side and Chosen of Mask Erevis Cale finds unlikely allies in his fight against Kesson Rel Kemp contines his trend of great action and strong character development here but the finale is unfortunatley marred by the nature of shared universe fiction.
This tale filled my imagination in several places.I have been reading the works ofPaul S Kemp from the moment he started the tales of Erevis Cale back in the Halls of Stormweather Anthology In it he began an evolution of a character who perhaps had a chance to turn from his past, but went deeper and deeper into shadow The distinction between me saying shadow and instead darkness is important, on several fronts.This book is the end of the Twilight War series and is the 7th full fledged book devot [...]
Some great moments in this one, and now I need to read the next one And, I was set to start one of my Christmas presents Oh well I m certain we will see of Cale, Riven, and Mags, but I hope to see Abelar return, as well That was a particularly good scene.
i want read the book
You can read the full review over at my blog sonsofcorax.wordpress 2013Just about a year and a half ago, I read my first ever books from Wizards of the Coast Paul S Kemp s excellent The Erevis Cale Trilogy review Set in WotC s highly popular Forgotten Realms setting, these books took me for a great ride through a setting incredibly rich with characters and diversity It was a bold new world for me to explore, as someone who had never read any Forgotten Realms novels before, and who was heavily in [...]
asks the question What did you think about the book And I say I think it s a Masterpiece This is how you write trilogies and conclude them This is the work of a Master And his name is Mr Paul S Kemp This man can write story that is so good, that even knowing how all ends you still are enthralled into reading it, and you don t really care about the end but on how it all came to it I accidentally had spoiled myself the end of the story and the destiny of Mister Cale and I will not spoil anything [...]
Shadowrealm by Paul S Kemp This is the final book in The Twilight War trilogy It picks up directly after Shadowstorm, with the events that are occurring in Sembia The story centers around Erevis Cale, Drasek Riven, Magadon, Rivalen Tanthul, and Abelar Corrinthal and their trials and fight against Kesson Rel The first book is Shadowbred and the second is Shadowstorm As I mentioned above, the this part focuses mostly on Erevis Cale, Riven, and Rivalen s attempts to stop Kesson Rel and the Shadowst [...]
The final book of the Twilight War trilogy is a climactic end, not just to this series, but is also one of the steps that led to the end of Faer n as we know it i.e transition to DD 4th EdAs with the books that star Erevis Cale this and the previous trilogy , the book continues immediately from book 2 The whole plot is epic right from the get go I had thought the action in the initial half of the book would be a false climax, but I was wrong It was epic in scale almost the entire way, with a tig [...]
I love this book SO much Granted, it was a bit difficult for me to get into, never having read the erevis cale trilogy beforehand and at times Shadowbred was jarring to me, but it got better in Shadowstorm However, Shadowrealm was by far the best in style, characters, plot, everything I especially like the fight scenes and I think Shawdowrealm was loads of conflict and fight scenes made it great I also liked the shifting views of the second fight between Kesson Rel, Rivalen, Riven and Cale, shif [...]
This book, the last in the trilogy, both thrilled and disappointed me It continued the huge action and big battles from the first two books, but it got to be a little much Clearly, the author wanted to focus on internal struggles and moral ambiguity, but there were half a dozen characters going through their own version of it and it was a little like bashing the reader over the head with it One or two characters would have done Also, the ending actually upset me The whole trilogy was building up [...]
Ah the sweet finale to a trilogy that is simply epic Despite the now old complaint I have about this trilogy s FP view from Magadon, this actually wraps up Erevis tale quite nicely.Throughout the tale you can actually feel the magnitude of the story, the clashing gods And not spoiling anything, there are quite a few twists and surprises, one of them a major one.Everything feels better in this third volume, the characters, the resolution, the story, the background Even The switching back and fort [...]
This book concludes the Twilight War trilogy, bringing everything to a head The political maneuvering of the Shadovar, the various agents of Shar pursuing their own agendas, the horrific descent into madness of Mags, and the powerplay between Cale and Riven, all of this comes to a satisfying conclusion Mr Kemp s Forgotten Realms books are excellent, and this latest trilogy cements his place as one of setting s best writers.
Crazy good book Paul S Kemp is really one of the best fantasy author out there If you want a book where all the characters have their own plot lines and developed as the story goes on, his book will be it.A fitting end to the trilogy and come Oct 2013, the story continues in Godborn
I m not sure this was enough ending for me I wanted after it was over and I know there is but I know its not going to be enough This book really solidified my love of Riven and overall it was really good.
Great book, couldn t stop reading after getting just over half way through, it felt like a great movie was coming to and end and I had to keep reading to see it through Touching moments, brave moments, great all around story.
Excellent wrap up with only a few minor frustrations Overall, a fitting ending some fun hints dropped for possible now finally realized sequeling.
Just awesome how the story took its time to play out and the end was just too good to stop.
So Fucking Epic.
Great trilogy The story kept getting better with each book and I cannot wait too see where he takes these amazing characters next.
Great finale to a great series Good work Paul Kemp, can t wait to read Godborn

incre ble, le pondr a un 6 sobre 5 y eso que es de corte cl sico, no sorprendente pero tiene escenas memorables y es un final perfecto para la trilog a.
That ending How insignificant your life is when viewing it from the span of millennia.
