good old days!

great store in performance I appreciate Elaine Cunningham stories don't get the sermon preached to you like you do in the ra Salvatore books. I'm definitely looking forward to finishing this series and I wish you would be able to write some more but it looks like anything coming through the DND books is going to be too overlaid with politics for me to build a participate in the reading or listening to him from here on out. So I have to listen to Just enter good entertaining stories from the old stock and when those are gone then I will be too.

Not Very Engaging

Is there anything you would change about this book?

My bad for not knowing right away that this book took place pretty much during the events in book 2. While Arilyn is a nice character she and both Danilo seem to suffer when not together. I couldn't really get into the story. Who cares about some elves in the woods with humans encroaching? The bit about her sword was nice but more of a side story.

Has Silver Shadows turned you off from other books in this genre?

I still like Elaine Cunningham as a writer but this book didn't help the cause. Really, not much happened.

Which character – as performed by Eric Michael Summerer – was your favorite?

Eric Michael Summerer does Danilo the best. Really, a nice job with all the characters but Danilo sounds epic.

Could you see Silver Shadows being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Not made for t.v.

Any additional comments?

I'm going through all five books in the series and so far this is the worst one. I am not sure how it ties in (if at all). But, I would recommend skipping this if you can. Very little to do with book 2 and book 4 is a stand alone.
