There are absolutely no redeeming qualities to these villians. You'd love to kill them yourself. The narrow escapes, danger from 'friends', help from 'enemies', the blurring of always excepted right and wrong -- and tied all up with magic. What more could you ask for? A hero, a heroine, a mission with no clear direction and danger around every corner. Do what's right or do as you're told and preserve surface honor? What would you do?

Elaine did an excellent job with The Floodgate. The book is both captivating and entertaining. I recommend this novel along with the entire trilogy.

Having defeated the deadly Laraken, Jordaini counselor Matteo and his mischievous companion Tzigone get on with their lives... or so they would want to. Along with a memorable cast of companions, they will be thrust into a wickedly twisted plot that threatens to undo the might of magical Halruaa.
In this second of three novels of the Counselors and Kings series, author Elaine Cunningham maintains the quality of work she is well known for. As with most go-between novels in a trilogy, The Floodgate builds upon previous material and leads into a conclusion. As such, it is as fine a bridge as I've had the pleasure of reading. Halruaa is brought to life as never before, and despite the general lack of references to some more familiar Forgotten Realms characters (who are largely dismissed as 'barbaric northerners') you won't be missing any bit of the excitement or action that the Realms are known for.
The author, as is expected, answers some questions and leaves others for later. There is a tense sort of foreboding behind the swordplay and spell battles, impressive though they might be. One cannot help but wonder where this is all leading. Rest assured that all will be answered by the end of the series. Do read The Floodgate on the way, however, for this trilogy is best taken in whole.

For a middle book it is good. I did not care for this book quite as much as "The Magehound", but still I enjoyed it. In this book the author evolves the characters well. We learn the fates of the characters after the battle in the swamp. This is a great book within an excellent trilogy. "Counselors & Kings" will end up being one of the more popular FR sets in recent years.

The multicultured variety in the Forgotten Realms settings never seems to end.
In the second volume of the "Counselors and Kings" series, the story of the young jordain, Matteo, continues. It continues with advancing the history of the land of Halruua.
The book is not astounding or anything, but you could say that Elaine Cunningham certainly knows how to capture the reader's dedicated attention. I just can't wait to read the third volume.
Don't get me wrong, people. It's a great book. Worth reading and buying.
Enjoy!
