1.0 out of 5 stars This book was a complete waste of time... Dec 17 2002

... Ed Greenwood has little grasp of plot, charachter development, or suspense. This book reads like a fifth grade book report. It is definately the worst of the Harper series and one of the worst books in the Forgotten Rhealms setting.

1.0 out of 5 stars I had no clue what it was about. May 6th 2001 May 6 2001

Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'v read lots Fantasy books and on StormLight I had no clue what was going on. I don't even know Storm's personalty. It's like just reading about some one whos talking in a boring voice. All i got was that her sister was a floting head .
But if you want to read it I think you shouldn't.

3.0 out of 5 stars No Greenwood's best, but... Oct. 8 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Though the characters are a little flat and the plot a simplistic, the book was still a good read. The story has everything that a TSR book should, including the the dim but honourable soldiers, egotistic wizards, a sexy heroine who is almost godlike, and of course the all powerfull villian. But that is also the books problem because it becomes too pridictable and repetative in some of the action sequences.

2.0 out of 5 stars flat and predictable, even for Greenwood July 19 2000
By mike b.
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you are among those hoping that Ed Greenwood will develop his characters more as time goes on, Stormlight is sure to disappoint. In it, Storm Silverhand becomes involved in a scheme by a dead god to revive himself. (Those who have read TSR's Lost Gods offerings will find this a familiar theme, though Stormlight is not part of that series.) Despite several interesting moments, Stormlight falls short on at least two counts.
First, Greenwood's characters continue to develop in raw power without any concurrent personality development. Even though she is likely the least powerful of the Seven Sisters, Storm is revealed to be a near-god by the end of this novel: she has lived for centuries; she has allies among the kings and archwizards throughout the land (and drops their names liberally in her dialogue); and, though not a wizard, she exhibits practically undefeatable spell-like abilities. Meanwhile, her personality remains shallow and inconsistent, e.g. bemoaning the fate of a long lost love at times and flirting with various male characters at others. Sadly, we learn very little of her past, or her connection to Elminster, Mystra, or her sisters.
Second, the plot has roughly 75 pages worth of substance, but the author presses the formulaic battle-then-regroup button long enough to churn out the requisite 312 page TSR novel. A potentially interesting secondary villain is quickly introduced then defeated by characters only peripherally involved in this novel, leaving the reader to wonder if interesting subplots have been deliberately clipped out by a sadistic editor.
In short, I recommend Stormlight only to those desperate for a Forgotten Realms story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Amusing yet confusing May 11 2000
By Kara S.
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Not a good book to read your first time through the Realms, but quite amusing if you know anything about Storm or the Seven Sisters.
Ed Greenwood's writing is anything but stimulating here, but FR fans do get plenty of Storm's biting humor. However, there are frustrating plot-defects. Storm's habit of ending up nude distracts from the book and is plain annoying. I read "Spellfire" and "Crown of Fire" long before this book (found neither of them gripping) and there are mentions of Selune and the loss of Storm's lover which contradict everything in "Stormlight" from the appearence of Selune to everything else in Storm's life.
The only other thing that trips up this novel is the fact that being a Chosen of Mystra makes Storm next to invincible, killing any hint of suspense that could have existed here. So if you are a Seven Sister's fan and can straighten out those little life-plot inconsistencies and like to see snobby nobles getting an earful, then go check this one out at the library or borrow it before deciding to add it to your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying Feb. 26 2000
By "AC"
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Another amusing and enjoyable offering from Ed Greenwood. This one is not for times when you're looking for something thought-provoking - it's straight action (with a few twists here and there). The characters are a bit 2-D, but the whole is a 'rollicking good read'!
