In The Sword of Bedwyr, young Luthien Bedwyr rebelled against the crushing rule of Wizard-King Greensparrow and his cruel wizard-lords. To save his once proud land of Eriador, Luthien was given a magical cape that renders its wearer invisible but leaves behind an indelible scarlet silhouette. In Luthien's Gamble, we see Luthien at a crossroads: in spite of the urgings of his comrades to avoid further conflict with Greensparrow, Luthien feels compelled to continue the battle for his beloved country Eriador.

Realizing that nobody else will take charge, and with the support of both dwarves and elves, Luthien and his followers stage guerilla raids on town after town. Luthien and his forces defeat scores of enemies and win huge numbers of allies. In the end, King Greensparrow sues for peace. Yet Luthien and Brind'Amour recognize that even in this time of celebration, Greensparrow cannot be trusted, and that the rumblings of a larger battle - for the freedom of the known world - loom in the not-too-distant future.

    " it was pretty good, lost some of humor from the first one, but it was a much more serious situation, too. Oliver is probably my favorite character still - and the comic relief. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristyn | 1/29/2012

    " I read this in a combo book with the Crimson Shadow. So read that review for my opinion of them both. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky Crowe | 3/2/2011

    " Not as character fun as the first one and I totally zoned out through most of the description of the battle (oh boy, they fought). Started the last one and it seems to get back to the banter and wit of the first one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt Laduke | 12/20/2010

    " Book ending was good once I got through it. Not sure if I will read the 3rd one. "

    " Run of the mill sword and sorcery trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becca | 3/10/2010

    " And now I have to finish the series because that's what I do. If you look at my review of the first, my thoughts on this one are generally the same. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 1/29/2010

    " I really enjoyed this trilogy. It was fun to read, and the action was pretty good. It did a good job of keeping me entertained! "

    " Fine adventrue--series holds together...typical political and magical convolutions "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 B | 12/26/2008

    " It was okay. Not bad, but not my favourite either. His Drizzt series still sets himself apart from eveyone else. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 GUS BUS! | 2/27/2008

    " A great book from one of my favorite authors of all time. It was fun to read a book by him that was not his usual cast of characters. This book also had the perfect combination of action, romance(i know strange for a book i read), and humor to make it great. "
