"So bad, but so good" Ted(2012)
A funny movie reference to say that this review was more a 2,5/3 one, but nostalgia factor raised the final vote for good.
Not much fleshed characters.
An avoidable romance between the main character, the elf wizard Shanhaevel and the party druidess, falling in love in a few pages.
The aforementioned elf watching his master die in the prologue because he not memorized offensive spells before travelling and becoming a "destroyer of worlds" high-powered magic-user just after that.
Long cheesy speeches between the heroes and the villains.
All of these and more, but I loved so much the original Gary Gigax's Advanced Dungeons & Dragons campaign module novelized in this book (I've run it twice as a Dungeon Master) that I've just forgiven these flaws and enjoyed the ride, a nice action-packed dungeon bash filled with iconic D&D characters, monsters, spells and situations typical around a table of RPG gamers... Like the mocking twist of a character name (Shanhaevel's companions call him "Shadowspawn") just to piss off the owner and the fortuitous appearing of a new PC after the death of another one, with the DM playing deus ex machina to save the day (and the adventurers party).
A not so bad novelization after all, if you are a die-hard D&D fan.
It could've been a good trilogy, but the one-novel lenght forced the author to cut for good character development and whole parts of the original adventure like the Elemental Nodes
And it left me wanting to install and play again the PC game based on it.
