I just learned that four more of my Forgotten Realms books will be making their way into e-book format on December 27.
Thornhold was intended to kick off a Harper transition arc, but instead became the "last Harper book." It does not end the Harper saga--it was not written to do so--so some readers found the ending inconclusive. But I hope you'll enjoy this story about the power and the pain of family ties. Bronwyn is a treasure-hunting rogue whose family tree includes a paladin, a dark lord, and a tiny half-elven sorceress. She teams up with Ebenezer Stoneshaft, a foot-loose dwarf who has family problems of his own.
Thornhold was folded into the Songs & Swords series because Danilo Thann has a secondary role in the story. Arilyn also makes a cameo appearance, during which she receives relationship advice from Bronwyn: "Men weren't put on this world to make our lives easier. They were just put here." And of course Khelben Arunsun is busily pulling strings.
The Counselors & Kings trilogy takes place in Halruaa. If your introduction to the Realms was fourth edition and post-Spellplague, you might well be thinking, "Huh?" Halruaa no longer exists--or more accurately, it barely exists. Since this was a land ruled by wizards and permeated with magic, it's not surprising that it was devastated by the Spellplague. Most of Halruaa is now underwater, and its unique culture was destroyed. Counselors & Kings, therefore, offers a glimpse into a lost world. It's the story of Tsigone, a street-smart rogue, and Matteo, a young jordain--a member of a magic-resistant counselor class--who was bred and a trained to advise Halruaa's wizard lords but finds himself in the role of knight to a very unlikely lady.
I'm delighted to see these novels in e-book format, aand I hope you enjoy discovering or revisiting these stories.
