Shadowbane is the second book in the Shadowbane series with the first book being Downshadow, which is also the fourth book in the Ed Greenwood Presents Waterdeep series, and the third book is Shadowbane: Eye of Justice. The Shadowbane series is set in the Forgotten Realms setting of Dungeons and Dragons. Shadowbane also ties into the Dungeons and Dragons world spanning event called The Abyssal Plague, and carries over the plague introduced in Bruce R. Cordell's Sword of the Gods novel.

Shadowbane takes places roughly a year after Downshadow and Kalen is traveling to Luskan after receiving a cryptic letter from Myrin. Luskan is under quarantine due to a mysterious plague that is driving people to madness then killing them in a most gruesome way. We meet some surprising people from Kalen's past and find out more about Myrin. Erik's signature is his fight scenes are there are plenty in Shadowbane. They are so vivid they practically leap off the page.I love books with anti-heroes [...]
I wanted to like this book but it was really kind of all over the place. Parts were pretty good, other parts were almost awful. The story was good but was put together in a confusing way. There were some things that were never really explained and while it was possible over the length of the book to get a general understanding it was never really completely clear. There were a lot of different bits that mostly came together but again, very confused. I won't go hunting for more by this author but [...]
Interesting characters, but some of the magic for the main characters felt off. Parts of it just didn't feel "D&D". Some of the interesting character development was too heavy-handed. I'm not an idiot, you don't need to hit me over the head with the villian's motivations and issues 3 times in the same paragraph. :) And I think it required too much knowledge of the previous book, but that's the nature of a series, I guess.Other than that, though, it was a fun book. The descriptions of Luskan [...]
This book is full of twists and turns. You never know who is going to do what to whom, so it makes for a lot of suspense. The story keeps you on the edge of page throughout the entire adventure. You think you know what is going to happen and then are surprised because something else happens instead. Kalen comes closer to finding his true self but not quite there yet. I highly recommend this for anyone who likes fantasy (sword and sorcery) stories. For those who like or need a love interest, ther [...]
This was an interesting, gritty novel set in the Forgotten Realms. It follows a fallen paladin into crime-ridden Luskan to rescue an amnesiac mage (who doesn't really need saving). Along the way, we meet a Guardsman-cum-paladin and a genasi avenger. While the main character is essentially Batman, the story is well-told, and I felt that the mechanical changes to a new edition were explained well. I think I missed a novel before this, and I know there is one after this one, so I suppose there are [...]
Fast action and great characters. Fascinating look at a completely lawless Luskan.
