    1. Crusade wraps up the Empires trilogy, the plotline that focuses on the Tuigan Horde, and their invasion of Kara-Tur and Faerûn. Like Dragonwall, the book is written from the point-of-view of those fighting against the Tuigan. In this case, that would be one Azoun of Cormyr, and his Crusade. Being as that Azoun is a character who is directly featured in other novels, has supporting roles in other novels, or is simply mentioned in other novels, I would have rather gotten another point-of-view fro [...]

    2. This was a good one. I liked the premise of the Western Alliance going against the invading hordes of the East. My biggest issue was that I feel like some stuff I wanted to know was left out. I feel like this section of the series could have had 3 books all to itself. Alas, TSR must have been locked into a 314 page maximum contract with their publisher in the 80's. Also, the endding was slightly underwhelmingbut overall, a good series and I'm glad I read it.

    3. "Crusade" relates the story of Azoun, king of Cormyr, to organize a preventive attack force and destroy the Tuigan army before they reach the western nations (Faerun).Compared to the previous two books, there's little action in here, as most of the story focuses on the Azoun's quest for recruiting soldiers and mercenaries who would comprise his army. Eventually, the army gets ready and travels a long way to meet the Tuigan forces to unleash the so-called final battle.I have to say that I was dee [...]

    4. I really wanted to give this book 4 stars. King Azoun's preparation for the battle with the Tuigan, and the battle itself, was well paced but the Razor John story arc left me scratching my head. The whole thing just felt underdeveloped and really just halted the book at times. James Lowder did a great job of bringing this trilogy to a close.

    5. Let's rewrite the Mongol Invasions so the Europeans win1 April 2013 Well, here I am sitting in a pub at Heathrow Airport waiting for the gate from which my plane leaves is revealed. I am also somewhat tipsy which means that I am probably not in the right frame of mind to actually write a serious commentary (which is why I chose Crusade), and the fact that they do not have smoking rooms makes it even more annoying. Oh well, at least Frankfurt does, but then there is a 12 hour plane flight ahead o [...]

    6. Probably the best single book I've read so far in my ongoing quest to read the entire Forgotten Realms library. First released in January 1991, Crusade wraps up the Empires Trilogy from the vantage point of King Azoun of Cormyr. Having played some of the video games and from other partial readings, I've heard of the great King Azoun, but never read any of his stories. James Lowder did a great job in immersing the reader into the Realms. Perhaps the first novel that tackled day to day to life, an [...]

    7. This was not a bad wrap to the trilogy.Each book in series overlaps previous one.Introducing new cultural mythos and backgrounds.After almost none of it first two books.This one brings in more of the Forgotten Realms you expect.Magic, dwarves and things of that nature.The series as a whole, helping to lay out. A lot of the landscape of Forgotten Realm nations.More conflict and action in this one, from previous stories as well.

    8. Fairly good read following the story of how King Azoun formed an alliance with his neighbors to form an army to stop the Tuigan horde from invading the heartlands. Occasionally the story also focuses on a couple of other characters, such as an archer in the army, or the king's daughter.

    9. Read this one over twenty years ago - just adding it now for posterity. The western nations of Faerun band together in a most uneasy alliance to take on the Forgotten Realms' version of Mongols and their allies. Fun, but nothing special.
