  • DNF'd at page 100. Honestly couldn't find it in myself to care about anything that was happening or who it was happening to. Additionally, the author seems to have done no research about the uses of various weapons he gives his characters, and delights in using large words that makes the book read like it was written by a pretentious thesaurus. Characterization felt flat, pacing is not well done, "revelations" were basically dropped without finesse, and everyone seemed to have the emotional rang [...]


  • I started this Eberron book (even with the low rating) hoping nothing because most Eberron I read were not really captivating. This book didn't really help my opinion. The main problem with this book is that it got nothing new. If you have read your share of fantasy stories, you will ask yourself is you already read this one. The plot: Youn noble who inherit suddenly a powerful artifact that nobody knows really. He have to go on the run to find protection elsewhere fighting all the way against m [...]


  • The Crimson Talisman is an example of how not to do an expanded universe story. Some aspects of the story are right on, but other parts are off in ways that fans will immediately notice and be disappointed in. The shoehorned-in 'love triangle' read as tedium instead of tension, and the Sudden But Inevitable Betrayal unfortunately did little to develop any of the characters. I appreciate that Adrian Cole tried in this story, and at parts it does feel like an Eberron story. But sadly, it mostly fe [...]


  • The first of the War-Torn books unfortunately sets the tone for the remainder of them, although Crimson Talisman is certainly the worst. Aside from the fact that the settings creater stated that he wouldn't consider it cannon, and the formulatic script, the characters in this novel were completely inaccessable. All either super human or so flawed as to be useless there is simply no one you can ever bring yourself to root for.



  • Turrible, Kenny. Just turrible. The writing is boring, the story is slapdash, the characters are cardboard, and it makes pitiful use of the (super fun) setting of Eberron.
