Publisher's Summary

In the fifth book of the multi-author Sundering series, New York Times best-selling author Troy Denning sends an embittered paladin, Kleef Kenric, on a quest to stop evil forces from taking advantage of the chaos rolling across the land of Faern and claiming dominion over the entirety of the Realms.
Stubbornly clinging to his family’s worship of a long-forgotten god, Kleef Kenric soon discovers that his god has blessed him with divine gifts, making him one of a new group of Chosen cropping up around the Realms. This divine gift makes him an excellent ally—and a target for those who wish corral his powers.
After battling his way out Marsember, a city besieged on all sides in the wake of the Sundering, he becomes swept up in the mission of a group of odd allies—a warrior noblewoman, an accomplished thief, and a mysterious short pudgy man exuding a faint odor of decay. With the forces of Shade tracking their every step, they travel to the Underdark to thwart the rise of the goddess of Death, but before long Kleef learns that his allies hide dangerous secrets—secrets that could destroy not only Kleef but the very fabric of the Forgotten Realms.

Good story that doesn't go where I expected

What did you like best about this story?

It is a great cross section of my favorite setting and furthers the story of the Sundering in very meaningful ways.

Any additional comments?

There were some opportunities for better character development, but all in all a decent story. Probably even better on my second listen.

A good story, but it was rushed or to slow

This story had a great beginning, but it slowed down as too much was rushed forward too fast. If this book was to be the first in a series it was a failure. If it was meant to part of this whole series like it's predecessor it fell flat. I did enjoy the story as it was good if you like a rushed story that showed have slowed down.
