The long struggle is over at last. The demon dactyl is no more, its dark sorceries shattered by the gemstone magic wielded by the woman known as Pony. But victory did not come easily. Many lives were lost, including Pony’s lover, the elf-trained ranger Elbryan Wynden.

Despite the dactyl’s demise, the kingdom still seethes in the same cauldron of plots and machinations. But when a deadly sickness suddenly appears among the people of Corona, Pony must undertake a pilgrimage that will test her powers–and her faith–as never before. Watching her every step of the way is the man she hates above all else: Marcalo De’Unnero, the villain responsible for Elbryan’s death . . . who would desire nothing more than to lead Pony down that same treacherous path to destruction.

****SPOILER ALERT********GIVING AWAY THE ENDING****Damn, when Brother Francis Dellacourt dies. I had to lay back and let that one sink in, after having followed his journey throughout the series.

This is the first book in the continuing Demonwars Saga (book 4 in the overall context). The continuing struggles of the Abellican Church, Pony and the kingdom of Honce-the-Bear. I think that this book did move a bit slower than the 3 preceeding books, but the last couple chapters were delightfully fast paced and brought a few conclusions while creating a perfect cliffhanger (or two!) that make me yearn to have the next 2 books. There are several great characters and a couple sub-plots all being developed during the main plotline of a kingdom wide plague that could wipe out up to half the kingdom. I feel that the somewhat long build up throughout the first 80% or so of the book was a bit plodding, but I believe that the last 20% makes up for it, as several threads come together to make the tapestry of Mortalis appreciable to any reader. A couple of the sub-plots lead me to definitely wonder how they will or will not be resolved in the next books in the saga. Nice hooks by R A Salvatore, as usual.Anyone who read and liked the first 3 books of the Demonwars should absolutely pick up Mortalis and won't be disappointed.

Rated 4/5
The original DemonWars saga, for those who read it at the time, is a mere memory, albeit a pleasurable one. Mortalis features most of the original heroes and Salvatore recalls the deeds performed historically for much of this book. Mortalis is a stepping stone to the further adventures within this setting and although Mortalis is a standalone novel, it revives old memories, provides important new keystones for a new saga and ties up loose ends in the process. Salvatore is canny though and Mortalis does all that and manages to slowly, ever so slowly, build a story of spreading evil, entwining the heroes once more. Mortalis revolves around a church in crisis, a religion under threat and how the Crown seeks to use this to its own advantage. Although the first two thirds offer little action, the character building and scenario setting pay off in the final third. A welcome return to Corona and a platform to further deliver upon.

This novel is a stand-alone story that follows after the DemonWars trilogy, set in Salvatore's world of Corona. Its almost a 4th book in that 'trilogy', as it continues the story of Jilesponie and her remaining opponents. This is still interesting for the unique magic system and his usual good characters, but this one seems to drag a bit more than usual.

Rated 3/5
Pretty good. Slower than the others have been. I was pretty disappointed by this book because I have heard from many sources, including Salvatore himself, that this is the best book he’s ever written. I just didn’t feel that. It was good enough, but not great, and certainly not the best he’s done. I liked where Pony ended up, but watching her get there was a little painful. Francis was the true hero of the novel, giving any hope of life to follow his beliefs. The whole plague theme had a lot going for it and lent itself well to pointing out man’s weaknesses. The solution to the plague, however, was less-than cool. I also didn’t appreciate the book’s preachiness.
