Well, it looks like this one has been slammed sufficiently by other reviewers already, so I'll take it easy on the negative aspects here. Actually, if you know what you're getting into (and you should if you have any idea who Ed Greenwood is), you'll probably enjoy this book enough. Mostly a mindless hack-and-slash, blast-and-burn, fast-paced fantasy where the band of heroes stumbles through an impossible journey, survives through luck (and a mysterious protector), and ends up completing their quest when the artifact they seek almost literally falls into their hands. Absurdly one-dimensional, stereotypical characters (both heroes and villains) free up Greenwood to fill up all the space he has with action, action, and more action. No need for character-building here, as you pretty much know everything you need to know about each of these guys from their initial descriptions. But, isn't that kind of read fun sometimes? It'll make you appreciate the more well-developed fantasies you read.

The new world Greenwood has created really fails to impress. Dark and dangerous enough, with seemingly every person being either a wizard, thief, warrior, or baron. The system of magic used here is very generic, with what seems like anything being possible at the speed of thought (especially with the use of the World Stones). The world also seems to be overpopulated with dangerous monsters like the Living Dead and Nightworms (whatever those are). Greenwood has also laughingly turned his most interesting character (Embra) into a slutty whore, making it a point to constantly loose her clothing, ect throughout the book. (The scene towards the end of the book with the four heroes sitting naked in a hot-tub is hilarious.. "I'm hard as a rock!" -Saraspar.) Finally, the level of violence, pain, and suffering Greenwood puts his heroes through is somewhat absurd. These people sure have good attitudes for being perpetually crushed, cut, poisoned, and burned, only to be healed just before the brink.

Basically, this is just what you should expect from the creator of Forgotten Realms and a D&D junkie. Mostly silly, wholly unbelievable, but thankfully short, this one can serve as an entertaining distraction, if that's what you're after.

love the series

I absolutely hated this book (it is as bad as an Ed Wood movie). I enjoy a good action-driven story, but I would like some semblance of a plot. Having a lot of action, alone, does not make a great book or a fun read.

The author jumps around frequently, the characters were dull, and the action was just pointless. It was as if Greenwood sat down over the weekend and was rolling dice to generate random encounters for his characters, and then writing about it. That's exactly what this book felt like.

It's a shame. If Greenwood was an unknown and submitted this to a publisher. I doubt it would ever have gotten published.

I have the whole series of Band of Four in hard copy. So I must have liked and read the series at some point. My re-read recently of this book revealed it to be, as previous comments, a fast paced book with lots of fight, flight, fight scenes. Not much plot, interesting characters, a good read but not what I was looking for this time around. Too fast for me this time, I wanted more character development, or something. Also found the author to throw in the nude lady with 3 men once or twice too often, even though it didn't actually suggest more then friendship, it still slams in readers face that this is a mans fantasy story. The Lady character is strong and independent so its acceptable. Thats about the extend of errors in the book. read on a rainy day without expectations of a really great book.

The Kingless Land is the second Greenwood novel I've read and it suffers from the same failings as Spellfire the first one I tried. They both read like the transcript of a particularly bloody game of Dungeons and Dragons, with the motley group of heroes :-Thief, Mage, Knight and healer; being dumped in a series of relentless confrontations with assorted mystical and mundane foes. Fight follows fight with little rationale or explanation. When you get to a point where you could reasonably expect a breathing space for character building or plot, Greenwood skips it and teleports his hapless crew of good guys directly to the next bone crunching, gut spilling combat scene. It's really a book for the X-box generation, if you want a non stop spell slinging, sword swinging blood bath then this is the book for you. If you want characterisation and plot then there are definitely better authors to be found.

On the back cover Margaret Weiss is quoted as saying:-

"Ed Greenwood is a master of Fantasy adventure world building. His magic and wizardry are wondrous to all".

I can't agree it's generic, derivative and far too frenetic to be really good.
