Aug. 1 2000 Lost Empires
The Nether Scroll continues the popular Lost Empires series, similar to the Indiana Jones genre where adventurers discover lost civilizations. The novel will appeal to legions of Dungeons & Dragons(r) fans, as well as Lynn Abbey's loyal fantasy fiction audience.

A young magic-user sets out to avenge the murder of his teacher and save her son from a similar fate. Facing evil and treachery, he must brave the ruins of Dekanter to find a missing artifact that might be a clue to the source of all magic in the Forgotten Realms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally some characters that are realistic Jan. 16 2001
By Jon
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was fairly aprehensive about reading this book since I did not overly enjoy Lynn Abbey's last FR novel "The Simbul's Gift." But I ended up really enjoying this book, in fact I loved this book. Many people complain that the main character's are annoying or loathesome but in actuality they were quite realistic, they contained real human qualities and real human flaws, and thats what made this book so great. The hero's are not of your near demi-god proportions and thus it makes it all the more interesting to read about them trying to overcome the perils of the book, and because of this aspect you actually don't know that everyone will be alright in the end such as in an RAS book. And finally to top off the five star rating goes to the quite enjoyable, foppish demi-human of the book. Its nice to see a character such as that portrayed with some intelligence rather than completly feral characteristics. Read this book, I don't think you will be disapointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lore? No. Nov. 12 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The "Lost Empires" category lured me to this book. I hoped to find more information about the past, something to compliment the Netherese set (which I do have). Instead, it's a story of very modern peoples, and only passing references to the artifact of the title. There is one section, late in the novel, giving a better idea of the nature of these scrolls, but just as a tiny glimmer was shown, it is ripped away revealing nothing of interest.
This novel has a decent story on its own, and if you want political intregue with the Zhents, this has some value. But it's not where my interests lie. (...)

1.0 out of 5 stars What a stinker Dec 11 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Reading this book was like being force fed a food that makes you want to vomit. You don't want to continue, but you really have no choice unless you want to waste 6 bucks. There are some nice points to the book, the female warrior was nice, and the things the mage learned from the scroll should have been expounded upon sooner as it was the only real item of interest in the whole dang book. As it is the writing was slow and the majority of characters were uninteresting. I can say I will never reread this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Realms getting better and better Oct. 5 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Okay so first of all, Lynn Abbey is a woman.
I was a big fan of Ms. Abbey's previous FR book, The Simbul's Gift, and was really excited to see her writing in the Realms again. I was NOT disappointed. Lately the whole FR line has been getting better and better after a real lull there. Beyond the High Road, Death of the Dragon, the whole Threat from the Sea, Sembia -- some of the best fantasy out there. And The Nether Scroll is right up there. I loved it and even the most passing FR fan will too.
