Another of my Forgotten Realms books has been released as an audio book.  Here’s a link to its page on

The Magehound is the first book in the Counselors & Kings trilogy, set in the magic-rich southern land of Halruaa.  This trilogy gives Forgotten Realms fans a rare and, sadly, last look at this fascinating realm, for most of Halruaa was destroyed by the Spellplague.  And by “destroyed” I mean gone.  Instead of land, there’s sea and swamp.

But!  With the D&D Fifth Edition coming up, the Forgotten Realms will be returning to a more recognizable form.  I will be very interested to see what this means for Halruaa.

In the meanwhile, there’s  The Magehound, followed by The Floodgate and The Wizardwar.

Clicking on any of the book links will take you to the info page for that book, where you’ll find a brief synopsis, as well as links to excerpts, reviews, and online booksellers.
