    1 thought on “The Silver Crown

    1. The continuing story of the D&D party who got sucked into their game. Amusing, enjoyable, even when dealing with serious subjects - slavery, murder, identity, etc.

    2. This volume of the series starts out with several years having passed since the previous volume. It's interesting to see how things have been developing for the characters and this world during that intervening time. I appreciate that Rosenberg is absolutely content to skip over the "slow" parts of a long-running story to keep the interest level pretty high.All of that said: Man - this book brought a gut-punch in the form of a fan favorite's death. Major bummer! I was a little miffed about how t [...]

    3. Of the three books in the “Guardians of the Flame” trilogy, this is the one I remember the least about. It was just two years since the publication of my favorite, The Sleeping Dragon, but I had more or less grown out of it in the interim. Or maybe the book just isn’t as good as the first one. It’s hard for me to be objective about it.At this point, our D&D Gamers from the first book have grown up and settled in to their fantasy world, changing it as much as it has changed them. They [...]

    4. Karl's mission of bringing freedom to the slaves is going reasonably well. Home has prospered and is growing through the rough stages of democracy. The slavers aren't running away yet, but his efforts are definitely effective. But no good spell lasts forever: the slavers have gotten wizards to create their own version of guns. Armed with weapons far superior to any but Karl's, they're pushing to make up lost profit and take down Karl once and for all.This time around, Karl's got more to worry ab [...]

    5. What makes this series different is that it's the anti-high fantasy. This is the third book in the series. In the very first, seven role-playing college students are transported to the world of their game as their alter egos. Those who survive stay and bring technology--and a crusade against slavery to their new home. I do often love sword and sorcery but you know what? The historical truth is that medieval societies suck. So hell yeah, I did adore the idea of those college kids from contemporar [...]

    6. Stick with the 1st book and call it good enough, the series gets weak after the 1st - REALLY weak. I give The Sleeping Dragon 5 stars, then each following book (2 & 3) only 3 stars. The first book condenses everything into a neat, if simple, package.2 & 3 get overly moralistic, and the writing seems to be directed at people with a 5-6th grade education. Just WEAK. Plus, the whole "modern society folk try to modernize a primitive land" has been done so much better it makes me wish Rosenbe [...]

    7. This books series started out as an ensemble of characters turned into real D&D players in a fictional fantasy world. They're still there but the ensemble is now a one man show with the other characters taking a backseat, and the whole D& D angle which was the complete focus of the first book seems to have been done away with; much like some bad plot device. While the books are entertaining and fast paced I often find that I have no real interest in the main character or any of the chara [...]

    8. And in my opinion this is where the series permanently descends to mediocrity. Superficially that is because this is when the two long term goals (freeing slave, modernizing tech) become diluted with additional and less interesting plots threads. Fundamentally it is because the author violated the trilogy rule.Rule: Trilogy's should not be longer than three books.

    9. Just a basic Dungeons and Dragons book.Though it is nice for the author to keep most his characters over the course of 5 books and still continueextended passages of that realm after the main bulk of the story is done.

    10. Still a bit unfocused, but that's made up for by: good characters, a more epic scale, and an interesting look at bringing modern ideas to a fantastic world that surpasses what many other authors do with the same foundation.

    11. A good book but the author instead of ending what purported to be a trilogy somehow extends the series. I hate that. But the guy knows how to keep you interested and his characters are fun and interesting

    12. The Guardians of the Flame series has been one of my best Fantasy genre series and each repeat of readings these books still is a treat. Granted the first book is the best.

    13. Fantastic fantasy series. Modern day gamers get transported and inhabit the bodies of their fantasy characters. Excellent storyline. Highly recommended

    14. In some ways this is a precursor to the 1632 series but in a fantasy time (with magic) rather than straight in the past. It's fun and I've been enjoying it, but not loving them.

    15. You know why this is one of my favorite series? Because the good guy dies in the end. Yes, that's right - it WASN'T a Hollywood ending, and I loved it.
