Ghostwalker (Forgotten Realms: The Fighters, #2) Reviews

  • Jesse

    I really really wanted this book to be at least moderately good. It couldn't even manage that. Let me sum this up for you to show you what a classicly simple story the writer has managed to botch. This is essentially a classic revenge western story. If you've seen "High Plains Drifter" or "Pale Rider" with Clint Eastwood, then you've seen the broad strokes of this type of story. Its a spirit of vengence thing. Sounds simple enough. Give it a modicum of depth and throw in some awsome payback acti [...]

    Because my brother recommended this book, I really wanted to like it, and so I trudged through it almost to the end. Then, I just gave up. This book is just boring, there's no other way to say it. Erik is a master at writing action scenes, there is no doubt, and that's a good thing, becaue Ghostwalker is nothing but a series of action scenes loosely strung together with a disappointing attempt at a plot. de Bie just went along, writing whatever was convenient, throwing together alliances and hav [...]

    I put off buying Ghostwalker for a long time. It was published in 2005, thereabouts, and I just recently purchased it. I picked up the novel Bloodwalk out when it first came out. I wasn’t particularly thrilled with it, the plotline or the characters. At some point, I heard that Ghostwalker contained a very similar protagonist to Quin, in Walker. I didn’t want to trudge through another novel that I was going to dislike, so I never bothered picking it up. Recently, however, I entered in into a [...]

    Ghostwalker is part of a quartet of The Fighters stories that are staged in the Forgotten Realms creation, but are stand-alone novels. This one, written by Erik Scott deBie is one of the better ones. Reading, we are within the northern reaches of Silverymoon and Lady Alustriel's influence. Though these names are large in Salvatore's stories, they play minor roles. The setting is Quaervarr, a frontier town on the fringes of what is, supposedly, a haunted woods.Although we get the story from sever [...]

    I decided to read this book because my friend recommended it to me and it did seem intriguing. Ghostwalker is just simply about a man who was abused and assaulted in his youth by a group of mysterious men and his journey to get vengeance against these men. My favorite quote of the book was, "This scar on my arm is the mark of the thin man's sword These on my chest, the barbarian's gyrspike This, on my shoulder, the woodman's axe. And this rasping whisper, all that is left of my voice, it is the [...]

  • Renee

    Ghostwalker is one of the best books I have had the pleasure to read in a long time. From the very first page, I was hooked. Once begun this book is impossible to put down. Especially considering that it is just one book rather than a whole series, it is impressive just how much these memorable characters are developed. The fight scenes are truly wonderful, easily rivaling the fights of R. A. Salvatore. While this book stands out among the numerous Forgotten Realms novels, it also stands alone p [...]

  • Rosemary

    Erik is one of the "Young Dragons" and he really is. Tall, cute, in his 20s, studies fencing. The "Young Dragons" include a nifty set of writers who entered a competition on the Wizards of the Coast website and then got invited to play in the Forgotten Realms. Most of us were first published in Realms of Dragons II. Erik's take on the Realms tends to be very dark fantasy. My stuff tends to be the polar opposite (I do cute fluffy puppies, he does tortured fighters with a mysterious past). There i [...]

  • David

    A well-written story that flows well. The characters are introduced and gradually developed in a pace that keeps you intrigued as to what their real motives are. Great character and scene descriptions, as well suspenseful dialogue at the turning points in the plot. The gripe about the plot is that it was quite predictable, probably because the gist of it has already been similarly told in movies and other stories - the character growths, their decisions, and the ending. Despite that, it's still [...]

  • Lynne

    This book was ridiculous in its bad writing and clunky plot. Don't waste your money, unless you just like reading contrived violence and cardboard characters. The book didn't even do what I expected it to do: shine light on the "fighter" class of D&D/Forgotten Realms -- or, should I say, if it is intended to match D&D then time to move on to something that isn't written for sociopathic 11 year olds.

  • M.A. Ray

    Sort of a 'meh'. There are hints of some actual talent from Mr. de Bie, but perhaps he was not allowed enough space to show it. Better by far than the first installment in this series -- but that's not saying a whole lot.

  • Ryan

    its a pretty good book i fell about this what i fell about master of chains they were great the end was great. a good action book i would also recommend this to mostly dudes because this one also reminds me of some RPGs i've played and it really keeps your attention.

  • Paulo

    Nice book with an a straightforward story. A kill bill of Forgotten Realms. A revenge story with a mystery inbetween. Great characters.

  • jared

    a god book

  • Louis

    Started off slow and disjointed but by the end it was a real page turner. Worth the read.

  • Tammy

    I really liked this book, will probably have to read the rest in this series. Not sure if I'll go back to read the 1st since I already know what's happened.

  • Remington

    Interesting twists, and pretty epic characters. Well written, if not a bit verbose in the fighting scenes. All in all an excellent book, happy to have read it.

  • Marianne

    Fight scenes move with a good pace, but the whole of the story is fairly predictable. The characters feel stereotyped, but it's an okay read to escape for a bit.

  • Claire Herting

    Cheesy, but amusing enough.
