A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg.
Never Adventure Alone
Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.

I thought it was really just plunked down and thrown together. But wow did the Salvatores get it together with this book. This book is still very much a YA book. It's written in first person, the young main character, the themes are all elementry YA and not too in depth.
But Geno seems to have grown leaps and bounds in this book. There was just so much more structure to this book and there was a flow of moments of no action to action instead of a long period of I was not a fan of the first book.

Still not a fan of cliffhanger endings. Jul 21, Michael Prier rated it really liked it.
We learn more about Elbeth, the woman whom Maimun thought was his mother, more about the Circle and their interest in the stone, and more about Joen, soon to be Maimun's girlfriend. Written as a frame story, Maimun tells his captor the tales regarding his adventures searching for the stone. The story seemed slow at parts and disjointed, although the action scenes were spot on.
Drizzt makes another cameo appearance, which is seemingly linked to other novels including him and his fellow adventurer We learn more about Elbeth, the woman whom Maimun thought was his mother, more about the Circle and their interest in the stone, and more about Joen, soon to be Maimun's girlfriend.

An enjoyable follow up to the Forgotten Realms fantasy originally intended to bring in younger readers into the rpg setting.
Reads like a fun YA fantasy series, but with the classic setting and elements of Forgotten Realms.

The cameos are lessened in this volume but still very much a selling point sadly, the main characters stand well enough on their own and the story builds to a fun climax without feeling too much like the middle book in a trilogy. An enjoyable series. Feb 13, Robert rated it really liked it. The Shadowmask is the second book in the Stone of Tymora trilogy by R.

Series: Stone of Tymora
Yet again there are special appearances by Drizzt and company and the reader is given a clue as to the timeline of this story which takes place during and after events in The Halfling's Gem from The Icewind Dale Trilogy. A couple subplots spring up in this one with Maimun's infatuation with a certain girl, the ambitions of a pirate captain, a woman wearing a shadowmask who can turn into a raven, and the mystery of an island. This story moves much better than the first. There was more mystery involved and so help my interest much more.
There wasn't as much of a need for character introductions so the story moved along nicely. Once again, this one is a fast read with short chapters and large print. This makes it ideal for a younger audience to read. The character development is done very well. A couple of the characters grow in ways that make sense and continues to define their growth. There is even a special appearance from one of the past characters, but to refrain from spoilers I won't say who.
I feel this is a good bridge novel and I am looking forward to continuing this story. Geno Salvatore is doing a wonderful job and I am impressed with the improvement of his writing. The details and depictions of battles are just about as good as his fathers. It flows wonderfully and the pacing keeps the reader turning the pages. Some criticisms: 1. Like the fist book, this one is written in the first person POV. I have never been a fan of this POV, but have make exceptions in the past and have read some good books utilizing this style, however, for this series, I believe a third person POV would have made the story much better.
Maimun's constant blaming of others or circumstances gets old. Instead of learning more about some situations it just continues to be the blame game over and over. As with the first book, this one also has a cliff hanger ending, albeit, this time at least there is more of an actual ending and the cliff hanger leads more into the next book.
At least this time he didn't end the book in the middle of a battle. Some positives: 1. To me, the writing was much better and the action sequences are fantastic. The wording is not over done for the young adult audience it is geared towards. Also set up for a younger audience is the length of the short chapters.
