The invasion of the arch-wizards is on!
The archwizards of Shade Enclave have come out of the desert with a message of peace, and an act of war. Split by petty disputes and causeless feuds, the merchant realm of Sembia is wide open for invasion, and with no shortage of Sembians more than happy to sell out to the Shadovar, can only one man—even if that man is Erevis Cale—do anything to stop it?
Paul Kemp’s Shadowstorm doesn’t even pause for breath…an immensely enjoyable middle installment with lots of adventure and an ending that hurls The Twilight War recklessly forward.
Shadowstorm reveals why Paul S. Kemp’s name is synonymous with the Forgotten Realms. His characters have motivations that any reader can relate to and have shown that shared world fiction is just as poignant and valuable as the latest New York Times Bestseller. His exploration of the anti-hero is something our culture is deeply fascinated with, and Kemp does it well. Erevis Cale is the dark knight of our dreams, powerful and mysterious.
—Grasping for the Wind
As any good writer knows, war, even in the overwhelming magnitude of its tragedy and triumph, must be personal…Paul S. Kemp‘s ability to do this with ease and grace marks him as one of the best fantasy authors writing today, and marks “Shadowstorm”, the second book of his Twilight War trilogy, as an adventure not to be missed.
