Summary

Kaerion Whitehart was once a mighty paladin, but sins of the past have cast him far from the light. Together with an elf mercenary, he now survives by the might of his sword alone.

In exchange for a hefty purse, the two friends agree to accompany a band of patriots into a tomb haunted by fear and legend. They soon find the mission growing beyond their control. As warring factions vie for the ultimate prize of a long-dead wizard, Kaerion finds himself caught between death and redemption.

The Tomb of Horrors is the latest title in the Greyhawk Classics series, a set of novels that revisits the most popular adventures of the original Dungeons & Dragons game.

Slow to start but a faithful rendition of classic tomb

The book flows slowly to begin with. Character building took far too long hence the 4 stars. Once the tomb proper is found it is a faithful leap into the classic d&d dungeon. The encounters in the tomb are adequately portrayed and the action towards the end well described creating an emotional and exhilarating climax to the tale. Worth a listen to anyone nostalgic or interested enough into the makings of D&Ds most infamous dungeon crawl adventure.

I’ve not read much fantasy fiction

Any additional comments?

Not being acquainted with fantasy fiction, other than J. R. R. Tolkien’s masterful works Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, I wouldn't know where to start. So picking something set in the World of Greyhawk that’s based on one of the greatest Dungeons & Dragons modules of all time seemed a good place to start.

I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. My only criticism is it took a little long to establish the plot, taking away from time in the tomb, and it seemed to end abruptly. Although, if you think about it, that’s not much different from typical D&D campaign.

Great story with different hero line up

I really enjoyed the story and the memories of the wall sconces was just too much. I liked the new heroes I just wish they didn’t keep introducing new ones.

The epic journey it promises

I read this book not for nostalgia, but for the first time and oh man did it deliver. If you enjoy dungeons and dragons, even if you are not a player but enjoy the concept get this book. So glad to have read it and wish I could forget it just to rediscover every twist and turn

Solidly Paced D&D Story That Brings Game to Life

From the sweeping story to the expansive characterizations, this novel does a fine job of capturing the essence of playing D&D in novel form.

The pacing is quick and the character building is detailed which, combined with the dungeon delve and various subplots, reaps a rich -- yet not unentirely expected -- conclusion.

The best of the series

Of all the Greyhawk books, this was by far the best written. The characters were engaging and the story flowed well. The author did a superb job in retelling the module in novel form.

surprisingly entertaining

I was just looking for some audio fodder to pass the time at the gym, and during commutes. What I got instead was a compelling story artfully read.

A decent story with excellent narration.

The narrator saves this book from being a mediocre tale. it's worth a listen.
