R.A. Salvatore's cast of exciting characters continue the story in war-torn Corona in The Dame

The vast road network of Honce, completed a decade before, had brought great optimism to the people of the land. Commerce could travel more freely and so could armies, and those armies, it was hoped, would rid the land at long last of the vicious, bloody cap dwarfs and goblins. For the first time, the many individual kingdoms, the holdings of Honce, would be brought closer together, perhaps even united. For the last few years, those promises had become a nightmare to the folk, as two powerful lairds fought for supremacy of a hoped-for united kingdom.

Bransen Garibond, the Highwayman, held little real interest in that fight. To him the warring lairds were two sides of the same coin. Whichever side won, the outcome for the people of Honce would be the same, Bransen believed. A journey north, however, taught Bransen that his views were simplistic at best, and that some things--like honor and true friendship-- might truly matter.

In R. A. Salvatore's The Dame, Bransen's road becomes a quest for the truth, of Honce and of himself, a quest to put right over wrong. That path is fraught with confusion and fraud, and a purposeful blurring of morality by those who would seek to use the Highwayman's extraordinary battle skills and popularity among the commonfolk for their own nefarious ends.

    " Pretty much the same problems are after the Highwayman, excep he has more feelings for people and is trying to find a way to fully become Jhesta-Tu. He is fighting, making comical remarks, captured, let down and tricked. But again, our hero changes in a way we almost wouldn't expect. "

    " Not very memorable, in fact I don't really remember reading this one at all, until I read the last book in the series. "

    " The least of the series so far. Seemed more like a transition book to the next of the series. Not much happened. Not good outside of series as stand alone. I recommend the series for fantasy fans, others shouldn't bother. Less D&D-like than other R.A. Salvatore stories. "

    " to me, the story ark was very flat. it did not build anything, and it did not have a conclusion. it just ended. "

    " The Dame, the third book in the Sage of the First King series, was a most enjoyable read. All three books have been good, but this was the most enjoyable. The conflicts are in sight and I look forward to finishing this series in the next week. "

    " The first 200 pages were a bit slow; Bransen's mastery of the gemstones was abrupt; and the ending was a cliffhanger. "
