Publisher's Summary

In this third book of the Sundering series kicked off by R.A. Salvatore and the dark elf Drizzt, SCRIBE award-winning author Erin M. Evans thrusts her signature character Farideh into a maelstrom of devilish politics and magical intrigue that will have far-reaching implications for the future of the Forgotten Realms.
As the chaos of the Sundering rages around her, young warlock Farideh faces a more personal turmoil wrought by a deal she made with a devil years ago. Hoping to protect her twin sister, she leaves everything she holds dear to assist a wizard in a scheme that pits the devils of the Nine Hells against the gods above.
But when Farideh casts the spell to enter the wizard’s remote mountaintop fortress, she picks up a stowaway - a Harper agent named Dahl who isn’t so inclined to follow devilish demands.
Dahl attempts to escape only to run into a village of odd people, lurking behind an impenetrable wall. Forced to gaze into the villagers’ souls, Farideh points out the ones who seem different, only to watch as the wizard’s guard carts them off to fates unknown. Are these villagers or prisoners? Are they blessed or doomed by the gods? As the wizard’s guessing game proves more and more diabolical, Farideh resolves to unravel his secrets - even if it means she’ll lose her own soul to the Nine Hells.

Two Series, One Book

Any additional comments?

This book is the third book in two separate series. It is the third book of The Sundering Series, and the third book in the story of Farideh, Erin M. Evans' premier character. You do not need to listen to the first two books in The Sundering Series in order to enjoy this book -- "The Companions" and "The Godborn" has almost nothing to do with this book. However, you probably do want to familiarize yourself with Ms. Evans' other two books: "Brimstone Angels" and "Brimstone Angels: Lesser Evils."<br/><br/>My major critique of this book is that the B plot-line obstacle (between Havilar and Brin) seems particularly forced for the sake of a delayed climax that fits into a traditional narrative arch. I hate to say that it rings false, because this is all just make-believe anyway, but it does.<br/><br/>On the plus side, I think Dina Pearlman has really improved as a voice actor since the last book in this series.

Cannot Praise This Highly Enough :-))

Would you listen to The Adversary again? Why?

I already have. Since purchasing this and the other Brimstone Angel audio books, I have listened to all of them at least three times each. As to why, I absolutely LOVE them :-)) Dina Pearlman does a brilliant job of bringing these stories, and the character to life :-))

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Adversary?

There are just too many, to choose just one, and I wouldn't want to spoil anything for everyone else.

What does Dina Pearlman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Ms Pearlman is perfect for these stories. She gives life to the characters, and both drama and humour to all the Brimstone Angel stories.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely. If I could stay awake long enough, I would have listened to all the Brimstone Angel stories in one sitting. I am eagerly awaiting the release of the next book, and hoping that Dina Pearlman agrees to read that one too.

Any additional comments?

These are some of my favorite audio books, and I strongly recommend these stories to anyone who likes fantasy. Awesome :-)) :-)) :-))
