Title: The Yellow Silk

Series: The Rogues, Forgotten Realms

Author: Don Bassingthwaite

Rating: 3 of 5 Stars

Genre: SFF

Pages: 320




A trading ship is attacked by pirates and one of the traders has helped them.

Now a brother of said traitor must find out what happened and either kill his brother’s killer or his brother himself.

And just to make things all ethnically ok, this is about a character from the eastern empire of Shou, where they just happen to have epicanthic folds, know martial arts and have all sorts of unusual weaponry.

So said Shou hooks up with a bard and they have an adventure.


My Thoughts:

Not bad at all. Token Asian character was so quick tempered and was always acting out that it pissed me off, but at least he wasn’t some wizened Mr Myogi father figure.

It has been a while since I started this Rogues series so it is hard to compare this to the others, but I do know that I enjoyed this more than the previous one.  This was an enjoyable one shot story that wrapped up just fine and was worth the time I spent on it.
