Great story, terrible narrator.

Once again a perfectly wonderful story ruined by Nicole Greevy. She has a terrible grasp of the English language. For instance, her inability to distinguish hiding something away in secret and a secretion from the body. These books need redone by a talented narrator badly.

It is hard to believe how far we've come.

Sitting here after having finished the "Prince of Lies"
is best described as a surreal experience.
The overwhelming quality of this book can hardly be believed
to have any connections at all to the dumpster-fires that were
"Waterdeep" and "Tantras."
That I've now been through a story so good that even the
acts of occasional stupidity within the main-characters come
off as intriguing character-features calling for a reader's
analysis of their mindsets, as opposed to simply being
facepalm-inducing, is more than a breath of fresh air.

The narrator is always still bad, but she appears to deliver
a more varied performance this time around, when compared
to earlier readings, and even then, her somewhat robotic
delivery makes for a somewhat fitting interpretation of the
alien minds of the gods when given voice.

Overall, a great book, and an overwhelming improvement
to the general series, do not miss this one.

Excellent

The stories of the Forgotten Realms are always great but this one ,is amongst the most satisfying. An excellent example of story telling with an exceedingly pleasant narration.

A Long Time Coming

I read the first three books when they were first released as, "The Avatar Trilogy." Then life got in the way of my, as it is wont to do, and I lost track of events in The Realms. Now, nearly 30 years later, I've discovered the wonders of audiobooks, the Kindle, and the awesomeness of immersive reading. I started reading some of the more recent Forgotten Realms titles and it felt as if there were gaps in my knowledge of the history of Aebir-Toril. I saw multiple references to Kelemvor as Lord of The Dead and became confused. As far as I knew, Kel WAS dead. When did he get promoted?

So I decided to go back and re-read, or perhaps I should say, "re-experience" for that seems like a better description of immersive reading, some of my old favorites and discovered that the tale of Midnight, Kelemvor, Adon, and Cyric didn't end in "Waterdeep." Now I know how he became part of Faerun's pantheon of gods. I can't wait till I get off work this evening so I can start on the next book.
