    1. Metagaming 101'Grimly Hobarth shook off these doubts. He had cast his die, and he would live-or perhaps perish-with the roll.'Hobarth the Cleric of Bhaal page 204 There's going to be some spoilers, people.The conclusion of this trilogy was uneven at best. The Good -Chapter 6: Shantu. The only reason I elevated my score to three stars. Daryth is hunted by a magical beast created by Bhaal and meets a grisly end. If this chapter were a stand alone short story it would remain a classic of the genre. [...]

    2. "Had the woman in Caer Corwell bewitched [Tristan]? Or was his love so frail that he could be drawn from Robyn by a simple flirtation? [Robyn] desperately hoped that the former explanation represented the truth, but even if it did, she wondered if she would ever be able to forgive him Tristan reached an arm out to Robyn, but she turned harshly away. The rejection struck through all the layers of his soul, knifing into his heart. In this, her moment of greatest despair, he was powerless to comfor [...]

    3. Un poco repetitivo, sobre todo si las entradas anteriores se han leído poco antes. La trama continúa la segunda entrega, aunque no está bien hilvanada. Los personajes sufren menos desarrollo, pero han alcanzado una forma bastante aceptable. Si tengo que elegir, prefiero el primero, que al menos es original.Copia aquí la reseña que hice para El Pozo de las Tinieblas, pues en realidad sirve para toda la serie:La serie nos sitúa en unas islas con claro trasfondo céltico (nombres, aspecto, cu [...]

    4. This is a reprint of the original publication, of which the first two books I own came from. The first and second actually contained good endings in and of themselves, if you discount the little plot hook epilogue (that I remember).I don't remember much of the first two series, except bits and pieces here and there. I guess they weren't memorable enough to stick. Granted, it was years ago, but great books tend to stick around in my head. I think this series should've been a duology instead of a [...]

    5. better by far than the other books in the series. characters are fuller and more interesting (perhaps because niles doesn't bother much about the secondary and tertiary characters and just leaves them in the background). i find the menace to be mostly less interesting here, less immediate, but the internal conflicts are more solid. overall not a series i think i need to revisit in the future.

    6. Lets make the Moonshae books a trilogy18 June 2012 It seems that when it comes to the Dungeons and Dragons franchise if you write a book and it is successful you then write a sequel, and because you have written a sequel, you must finish it off with a final book to make it a trilogy. I have seen this time and time again, with the Crystal Shard, Azure Bonds, and the Moonshae trilogy. With each of the three books that I cited I had no real idea that they were ever meant to be part of a trilogy, bu [...]

    7. Questo ultimo libro relativo alla trilogia di Moonshae, risolleva abbastanza il pessimo secondo volume, ma non troppoSe da una parte ci sono dei momenti molto interessanti, come tutta la devastazione ecologica portata dalla venuta di Bhaal nella vallata di Myrloch, oppure la sfiancante traversata per raggiungere il Darkwell, ma dall'altra parte continuano a persistere situazioni paradossalmente comiche, come il tradimento di Tristan che fa' incazzare a morte Robyn oppure la stessa morte del corp [...]

    8. Of the trilogy, I enjoyed this the least.I found - more than any prior - that everything was taken straight out of a D&D adventure.The encounters meant I could see the dice rolling, and I could sense people playing their 'role' behind the character.This stretched my patience very thin.I found that the book is drawn out, repetitive to no gain.The encounters have a hollow feel to them, with no texture, no substance.You encounter an owlbear. The whole party makes an attack with their uber +5 ho [...]

    9. The pay off for the trilogy. Definate page turner, that keeps you interested start to finish.Have to admit, one thing very impressive. The tying together of the many threads.This point, so much needing to be written. Easily had enough plots running.That this book, could have been expanded into more than one.Using condensed bits and pieces here and there. Manages to move all the characters along.As well as the many battles, and battlefronts.Did a nice job of wrapping things up. Giving it a accept [...]

    10. The least of the trilogy. The romantic squabbling between Tristan and Robyn was an unsuccessful contrivance that weighed the book down. There's also a lot of non-action and non-progress in the narrative - we spend an awful lot of time plodding from point A to point B in Myrloch Vale without really advancing the plot in any way. So when you actually arrive at this book's conclusion, you're relieved more than anything else.

    11. Finally finished the trilogy. It was a rough slog to be honest. Quite sexist and the main male character is really not bright.I originally started reading the trilogy to get background for playing a character from the Moonshae Isles and the character died long before I finished even the first book. Also, I feel like I didn't get much background info on that D&D locale in the first place. Frustrating.

    12. Good lord, this thing was drawn out! I had to force myself along, getting more and more angry at the nonsensical plot twists, until I finally was rewarded with a well done final battle. I hated Tristans sudden lack of morals or backbone and found it hard to cheer for him.

    13. Better conclusion. Nice explanation for the stepping in of Chauntea. Nice to see Bhaal taken down, but magical nature of the Moonshae Isles in the modern era, and not something ancient like the Netherese. Makes you wonder about other Druids though.

    14. This book, like most trilogies, was no where near as good as the first book in the series. The plot seemed a little weak and the characters made decisions that didn't make sense.

    15. Much much better the first two in the series. The heroes weren't complete dolts in this one, only a bit.

    16. Generic. Only word I can think of. Not a bad word to use when describing a book but not a good one either. Unlike most books that carry you along this series as a whole was a rather dull read.

    17. With so many TSR first printings being printede more i bought was the more i read. It was always difficult to immerse yourself from one series to another. The book was still great.
