    1. Second book of this series continues with the events that happened when lich Szass Szass Tam, Zulkir of Necromancy, set out to become the only ruler of Thay, a land in Faerûn (Forgotten Realms).In the first book, we learn a lot about Thay's society and culture. They are ruled by red wizards's governing body the Council of Zulkir's. Szass is a member and Zulkir of Necromancy. Here, the conflict continues. Ten years has passed since those events that started the war. The land is exhausted, tired [...]


    2. Richard Lee Byers, Undead (Wizards of the Coast, 2008)(warning: this review contains spoilers for Unclean. If you haven't read that one yet, don't read this review.)Byers continues with his Haunted Lands trilogy, and the second book is a worthy successor to the first. Undead picks up ten years after Unclean left off, with that book's main characters scattered around doing the things they normally do. Szass Tam, however, has spent the last decade quietly researching a few tricks that could, if ev [...]


    3. Even after all this time, and again countless authors, universes, characters, once I start reading your work, I can not stop, you bring new light to your characters, at best Szass Tam was a forgettable villain and the Red Wizards of Thay, a mediocre grouping of wanna-be mages. A plaything to such characters as The Blackstaff, Storm Silverhand and Mystra's other Chosen, including the great ElminsterThe second book of the Undead Land trilogy, fleshes out characters Aoth Fezim Captain of the Griffo [...]


    4. There was precisely one reason why I was truly waiting to set my hands upon Richard Lee Byers' second entry in The Haunted Lands series –and that was – to get “eyes on” experience in The Year of Blue Fire 1385DR – the death of goddess Mystra which in turn gave wake to the calamity known as a Spellplague, a realms shaking event. Did I get what I was looking for? Oh, yes! And even a bit more in this book called “Undead”, set in my most beloved fantasy universe “Forgotten Realms”. [...]


    5. Please Note: This review is for all three books in this series.Unclean, Undead, Unholy, The Haunted Lands Trilogy, by Richard Lee ByersFR Date: 1375 - 1478Richard Lee Byers, author of Dissolution (War of the Spider Queen Series) and The Year of the Rogue Dragon series, works his magic once again with his new series, The Haunted Lands. This three book trilogy includes Unclean, Undead, and Unholy. The adventure is set in the Forgotten Realms in Thay, land of the Red Wizards who are renowned for th [...]


    6. I am still very new to and haven't by any means figured out the best method to make updates as well as my review. If this site lasts longer then Virtual Bookshelf and I have opportunity to look back at it in a few years, it is my hope that I haven't overly embarrassed myself.This is the second book in the Haunted Lands series. I feel like I was pretty harsh on the review of the first book, Unclean. I am enjoying the story. This is my lunch time reading so I do want something light and fun to re [...]


    7. Outstanding thriller featuring undead and those pesky Red Wizards of Thay, who spend 90% of the time screwing themselves over before they even get started with their imperialistic ambitions. Great job by Richard Lee Byers in a fast paced, magic hurling war story as the devious Arch-Lich Szass Tam launches his most ambitious bid yet to take control of the country, but where is the Simbul, the witch queen of Aglarond and Tam's check in his rise to power? Ten long years of war have passed, Aoth the [...]


    8. This is the second installment in the Haunted Lands trilogy. if you like Sword and Sorcery fantasy with some horror thrown in; you will enjoy this book.The most compelling character is Szass Tam. He is the top Wizard of Necromancy in the nation of Thay. In this trilogy, Thay is ruled by a fractious council of Zulkirs(the top Wizards in each magical discipline). Self interest, greed, and infighting plague this council; in other words gridlock. Szass Tam has a plan to change that. He shows himself [...]


    9. Well now, I guess all the personalities and separate plot lines came together to bear fruit in book 2. I actually didn't realise that this book crosses the Year of the Blue Fire - the Realms-wide Spellplague event.The conflict that started in book 1 was now 10 years ago, and Thay is a nation torn apart by civil war. You are still following the same characters and you see through their eyes, actions, and reflections on how the war has changed them and the land around them.I'd say this was portray [...]


    10. This was what I was expecting of this author and this setting. This was a great book. The confusing scenes back and forth, the tons of characters are almost gone, thankfully. Bareris and Tammith play a big role in this novel and I dislike them a lot, despite the very good work done with Bareris' powers. However those characters personalities and story just makes me want to throw up (like a cheesy mexican soap opera).For me the most delightful thing about the book was witnessing the spellplague " [...]


    11. This book was certainly a great improvement over the first book Unclean. It's much easier to read and nothing jostled me out of the forgotten realms mindset like the first book did. I quite enjoyed the continuing adventure of the characters. But, like most, I don't feel much of a connection with them. I wish the rest of the characters were built as good as Tammith's. Her depth, her trial and agony, and her life and undeath were the best parts of both books. I am curious to see if she will someho [...]


    12. The following link beezermnethyn/is highly recommended for its review of this and other fantasy authors. I usually completely agree with the review wholeheartedly. I still recommend the website for the review of this book, however, I liked it a bit more. I enjoyed the pacing it even though it did bog down a bit in the middle. The book does provide some nice explanations and a bit how things will become affected in the future of the realms.


    13. The second book in a trilogy, Undead was written better than Unclean, there was more of the lich that was promised in the first one, and even a nautical battle with amphibious undead. I mean, the lich was able to reanimate a kraken. How cool is that?What I found most intriguing however, was that two prominent characters were killed off. One for good, and the other became a part of the undead hosts.A good continuation of the trilogy.




    14. Excellent continuation of the story arc with plenty of twists and turns to keep you from putting it down. Loved it! On to book three!





    15. I found that this book dragged, so I just couldn't get into it. I thought the first book was alright, but disappointed in book 2. I don't think I will be finishing the series any time soon.
