The Erevis Cale Trilogy Paul S Kemp The Erevis Cale trilogy is an enjoyable read The three negative things that I can say is that the author could describe things better as well as a couple of times he seems to reuse the same word several times over a span of a page or two.

    One thought on “Shadowbred”

    1. The following review was taken from beezermnethyn/indexpI highly recommend this website for this and other fantasy author reviews.Shadowbred by Paul S. Kemp, is the first book in the Twilight Wars trilogy. This book follows the path of a character from a previous trilogy; The Erevis Cale trilogy, the three books in that set are: Twilight Falling, Dawn of Night, and Midnight’s Mask. I would encourage anyone who has not read those three books to do so before reading this new book. Otherwise thin [...]

    2. The first book of The Twilight War trilogy - picking up where The Erevis Cale trilogy left off - ranks a solid 3.5 for me. There are elements of this book that I've come to really enjoy from Paul's writing: strong characters, engaging battles, and deep Realmslore, but in all honesty, there just wasn't enough of it to warrant a higher rating from me.The last quarter of the story really picks up the pace and fans of Paul's earlier work in the Realms won't be able to put it down (I couldn't). But k [...]

    3. 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 w [...]

    4. Shadowbred by Paul S. Kemp is the first book in the Twilight War series, set in the Forgotten Realms. This is a sequel to the previous series of books about Erevis Cale, and picks up a year after the events in those books. I've been looking forward to reading this series, as I thought that the previous books by Kemp about Erevis Cale were some of the best written for the Forgotten Realms - they had action packed plots, rich Realmslore and background, and interesting characters. Unfortunately, wh [...]

    5. This is the first book of the Twilight War trilogy by Paul Kemp. It's also the continuation of the characters first presented in the Sembia series and the Erevis Cale Trilogy right after that. People who want to read this book should first check the other books beforehand if the want to understand the characters and events described within the novel, or they could simply start with this one but they might have some trouble underastanding who is who and what happened in the past.StoryThe plot is [...]

    6. Shadowbred by Paul S. Kemp- The first book of The Twilight War trilogy. This follows Erevis Cale, Drasek Riven, and Magadon a year after the events of The Erevis Cale trilogy. Book two is Shadowstorm and the last book is Shadowrealm.Sembia is in turmoil and on the brink of a civil war. The whims of a dark goddess sets the stage and her followers stage murder and a cry for war. All because of the people of the Shade Enclave wants a place to call “home.” Only the Chosen of Mask can try stop a [...]

    7. Well now, I guess this is where all the stuff done in the Erevis Cale trilogy pays off. Don't start this one before that previous trilogy - it's more like a 6-book series. Book 1 is basically where a major Realms event officially starts brewing. All the pieces are in place, and all that's left, is to set things in motion.The pace of the book starts off leisurely, as we see the different players in the plot starting their engines and shifting in gear. The pace just keeps racking up to a strong fi [...]

    8. Paul S. Kemp is brilliant. I have said this countless times, but I can't stress this enough.The characters and the world are very immersive. His work regarding "shadow-world" is great. I love the immersion level he gives us regarding Netheril (for me it's a particularly interesting culture).The story, despite being a first book in a trilogy, is a continuation of Erevis Cale's story, and I won't be spoiling anything. There aren't any major surprises (one or two) or anything, but there is a good p [...]

    9. There is something about rereading a book after a long period of time that makes the experience even better than the first time. I may not remember all of the exact details of the story but I remember the highlights and certain scenes and I come to anticipate them. I do not know exactly where they are in the book but I know they are coming and it keeps me turning the pages.Shadowbred is the first of the Twilight War series and picks up a year after the events of Midnight's Mask. The stunning con [...]

    10. It is interesting to study what religion can do to different individuals. “Shadowbred” by author Paul S. Kemp describes this through the main characters Rivalen, Elyril and Erivis Cale. Rivalen is a shade who can travel through the shadows to the destination of his choosing. He is a priest who believes in the goddess shar;the lady of loss-as well as Elyril. They work together as allies to achieve the same goal but with very different tactics. Elyril uses insanity, murder, and politics while [...]

    11. I initially picked this up about 2 years ago while at the Goodwill, perusing the bookshelves. I happened to find it sitting there with the second book in the trilogy and pulled up to see how it was rated out of sheer curiosity and found the abnormally high rating for this sort of book. Sufficed to say, the $2 asking price for both books seemed well worth the risk.That being said, this book was way better than it had any right being. It was a quick, fun, action-packed read. I can't ever recallin [...]

    12. Wow. I don't know exactly what changed, but this book is SO much better than the three in the Erevis Cale trilogy that preceded this trilogy. This is so much larger in scope, involves powerful and familiar characters, and has a sense of "mattering" that the previous trilogy lacked. I came so close to not reading this trilogy just because the first was so disappointing, but I'm glad I carried on. I'm very, very curious to see where this ends and I'm thrilled that Kemp either got his act together [...]

    13. This book was a quick pick, and it sparked my interest because of the character Erevis Cale. I suppose I enjoy the dark brooding hero / anti-hero. I have not read the preceding books, and this was merely a taste tester. I really enjoyed it. So I suppose I am a bit out of order. However, the book did its job and now Paul Kemp has my interest.

    14. This book and series is a quantum leap above Paul S. Kemp's previous Erevis Cale trilogy. Not that the latter was bad, far from it. But The Twilight War shows marked improvements in plotting and character development. It's a treat to read and I cannot wait to see how it ends.

    15. Great Book!I only picked up this series to get an back story for "The Sundering" series but I am happy to say I could not put this book down! Great from start to finish! Can't wait to start the 2nd.

    16. A quick, light read, continuing the adventures of Erevis Cale, Mags, and Riven from the previous trilogy. As I'd hoped, it moves at a brisk pace, full of danger and high stakes, and effectively evokes the political and mysterious landscape of Sembia. Good stuff.

    17. even though I wasn't enthralled with the first Cale trilogy, this immediately had me going and I didn't want to stop. It's sooooo good.
