saying this book is amazing, but isn t as bad as the one sentence reviewers would have you believe If you are looking this boom up on goodreads because you think it sounds interesting, I say give it a chance Oh, gaming genre fiction sometimes you re good, occasionally brilliant but usually mediocre Oh where to start I mlost going through this book than Aereas and Nina seeing Sigil for the first

that Nina isn t really his cousin It s worse than Luke and Leia I m going to continue with the series in a couple of weeks, after I get something decent in my brain Maybe it ll get better One can only hope kids killing a maralith in one round i don t think so Am I making a name for myself for reading and reviewing these obscure fantasy novels Probably not, but I ll have a good time with it anyway.This book is certainly not the strongest in character development but the sheer imagination in the Planescape setting is enough to keep me reading This is one of those books that suffers from

reading The second book is better too, ratcheting up the weirdness to 11 Jump on in I have only myself to blame really Most of the old TSR novelisations for Dungeons and Dragons have a well deserved reputation of being badly written shovel literature writtento take advantage of kids that didn t know any better I had thought that the inherent coolness of the Planescape setting might mitigate against this, but I was disappointed Blood Hostages is not a good novel by any definition.While this isn t a particularly horrible example of the genre, it does suffer from a lot of I have only myself

a particularly horrible example of the genre, it does suffer from a lot of the problems endemic to this sort of novel Poorly defined characters with no clear and consistent personalities or motivations Characters doing bizarre things for no apparent reason multiple volunteers signing up for a fight against The Lady and then a trip to the Lower Planes without any tangible promise of a reward A large cast of characters, most of whom have little relevance to the plot, leading to heaps of who are they again moments Prose that s purpler than a boxful of eggplantsThere are some perks, it s nice to see some places in the Lower Planes, and the book is agreeably fast paced, rather than getting bogged down in too much exposition But there are lots of books that have interesting settings and a good pace, but don t suffer the crippling flaws that this novel does Recommended for Planescape completionists only This is a really bad book This is also a pretty good crappy planescape novel So I m averaging out 2 stars in general and 4 stars for what it s meant to be I was also led to believe this book hadhappening in Sigil and it leads you to think it may but like Pages of Pain it pretty quickly diverts you down a dark alley and then elsewhere which has almost nothing to do with Sigil itself It failed me on that front, enough so that while I have the next two books picked up rather cheaply This is a really bad book This is also a pretty good crappy planescape novel So I m averaging out 2 stars in general and 4 stars for what it s meant to be I was also led to

compelled to eat up the trilogy anytime soon view spoiler The bleak abyss of endless winds is by far the most interesting and terrifying part of the book, I ll probably use it hide spoiler Finally, as a personal note, RE my own Dd campaigns, I m calling that after reading the last line of the book my wife says something like, That bitch Ugh I totally understand how Artus feels I enjoy D D novels in general, but this series is horrible I enjoy DD novels in general, but this series is horrible Boooooooooooooooooooriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing
