The Crimson Shadow...
Disguised as the magic-wielding outlaw called the Crimson Shadow, Eriadoran noble Luthien Bedwyr has struck the first blows for his people's liberation. But now his ragtag rebel army of elves, dwarfs, and humans must rally against the threat of a new war. As the evil Wizard-King Greensparrow marshals his forces of Cyclopians and demons, Luthien must brave Eriador's fierce winter and win more and more of its inhabitants to the Crimson Shadow's cause. The odds are against him-even more than he realizes...The Crimson Shadow.
The battle to free Eriador from the grip of the tyrannical Wizard-King Greensparrow continues in this fitfully rousing sequel to The Sword of Bedwyr. Although the humans, elves and dwarves led by young Luthien Bedwyr, The Crimson Shadow, have retaken the city of Montfort from Greensparrow and have restored the city's ancient name of Caer MacDonald, the battle for freedom has just begun. An army of "cyclopians" led by the vicious Belsen Krieg advances to crush the rebels, who must gain allies from those reluctant to take on dangerous forces. The ancient wizard Brind D'Amou, who sparked recent events with his gift of a magical cape to Luthien, joins the rebels as an adviser and leader. Luthien himself, abetted by followers and comrades, devises brilliant tactics that destroy his immediate enemies and earn him much-needed allies. Salvatore's battle scenes are robust, but his fantasy is dully derivative, and Luthien's meandering about his love life is awful.
