Streams of Silver - R.A. Salvatore I'm torn whether to give this book 4 stars or 5-- here's why:

Bad: this book reads a bit like fanfiction-- stock characters thrown in impossible/implausible situations..etc.etc.

Good: don't think too hard about it. It's a fantasy book. Dwarves. dungeons. dragons... yeah. this is the second book in a row where they battle a dragon and it's AWESOME!

Tie breaker: The author twice uses the phrase "Regis and Cattie-Brie"

five stars.
