Voyage of the Mourning Dawn by Rich Wulf is the first book of the Heirs of Ash Trilogy set in the world of Eberron. The second and third books, Flight of the Dying Sun and Rise of the seventh Moon will be released in 2007.
Reading every Eberron novel thus far, I can say some have been good and some have been not so good. So far the authors they have writing in this world have been hit and miss. I have never heard of Mr. Wulf before, but I am always willing to give authors a chance so I picked this book up. I was not disappointed in the least. While some authors, most notably Keith Baker, feel a need to include all the `technology' they can in their novels, in this novel the technology is not what makes the story - it's merely a supporting element.
The plot of this book is rather linear, but it is also very well laid out and all the characters actions have a purpose behind them. They don't simply do something to be doing it. The plot also follows a logical line of...
This is a fun and exciting read - I gave it four stars because I did enjoy the book, but it did not offer anything that was mind blowing - just a fun romp through the country on an airship story in the world of Eberron - I love the stories told in Eberron, and though I am not a huge fan of the War forged, they are not distracting to the stories - this is your standard fair in the world on D&D in that characters have a class, and are sometimes referred to their class in dislike or distrust from opposite sides of the playing field - Again, nothing ground breaking, but the airships are fun and have good details in this novel and I enjoy the characters, their back-stories and their mission in this and hopefully the next book.
Best series in an of the ebbron books! One of my favorites of all fiction books.
