About this title

Synopsis:

In The Demon Awakens, New York Times bestselling author R. A. Salvatore created a dazzling new world of fantasy adventure and striking drama. Beset by danger, the elf-trained hero Elbryan Wynden championed the cause of good and confronted the daunting powers of darkness. Now with The Demon Spirit, Salvatore takes us deeper into the twisted heart of evil that lies at the core of this epic masterwork.

After believing the tide of darkness has receded from their beloved homeland, Pony and the Ranger Elbryan--soulmates from childhood--together discover the terrifying truth: the power of the demon dactyl was never entirely vanquished by the reverent monk Avelyn Desbris' sacrifice. Now, armed with the mighty magic of the gemstones that are Avelyn's legacy, they must battle a darkness that has infiltrated the most sacred of places--as a once-admired spiritual leader rededicates his life to the most vicious, most insidious revenge against the forces of good. And with the gemstones within grasp, there may be no stopping the spread of the malignant evil . . .

Epic in scope and spellbinding in its portrayal of the clash between innocence and unspeakable malevolence, R. A. Salvatore's The Demon Spirit is a fantasy tour de force that leaves the reader in breathless anticipation of this extraordinary trilogy's stunning conclusion.

Review:

The Demon trilogy by R.A. Salvatore began with The Demon Awakens and continues with The Demon Spirit. Corona is a fantasy world regularly menaced by the "demon dactyl" who organizes the usual suspects--goblins, dwarfs, giants--in hope of wiping out humanity. Having been comprehensively blown up in book one, the now bodiless demon resorts to corrupting the soul of the abbot who is Corona's chief religious leader. It's an easy task, since despite a few good monks the church is already a murderous, hypocritical outfit.

On the other side, Elbryan the elf-trained warrior and his magic-wielding lady are busy cleaning up the increasingly disorganized remnants of the demon's armies, with skilled assistance from elf and thief companions. The magic comes from stones and jewels with various interesting powers, liberated from the church by a renegade monk in book one. This annoys the Abbot no end, and his "Brother Justice" assassins are hot on the stones' trail, bumping off rival clerics and innocent bystanders en route.

There's plenty of slick incidental adventure and skirmishing, and even an exciting raid on the torture chambers of the biggest and best-defended abbey. Meanwhile the battle lines are being rearranged: the fight is no longer against the demon but the now demon-influenced church, with the final clash scheduled for the concluding volume The Demon Apostle. Fast-moving commercial fantasy that delivers action rather than misty enchantment. --David Langford, Amazon.co.uk
