An excellent book from the first to the second-to-last page. The characters are wonderfully fleshed out and Troy Denning writes some of the best action in the business. Unfortunately, he must have realized what an impossible situation he wrote his characters into. Instead of coming up with a remotely satisfying ending, he cops out. This is not even a tragic, sorrowful ending. He just stops writing and leaves the reader with an empty pit that Denning dug but didn't fill.

This was a good read, with a good eye to detail, but as with other reviewers, I was disappointed with the ending, (or "Not-Ending"), and feel a sequel would be appreciated. An extra 20 pages could have made this book so much better, (with a score of 5 crowns), but alas, this was not to be, and because it didn't end , it was a waste of time spending two weeks and nearly £4, on it.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Faces Of Deception by Troy Denning is a Forgotten Realms novel and the second in a quartet of stand-alone tales entitled Lost Empires. I'm not entirely sure why the book is in this set though, because unlike the other 3 books in the series, this one does not feature some secret from a past fallen kingdom. It is set in the present day of the Realms.

The main character of the book is Atreus Eleint, a human of noble birth whose mother had him cursed with ugliness to hide him from the families enemies during the civil strife that tore the nation of Tethyr apart not long after he was born. His family were all killed in the strife, but he (and his families considerable wealth) survived in the care of the Shieldbreaker clan of ogres, who were his families former bodyguards. With his frightfully ugly features, he blended in with the young of the clan and his life was thus spared. Now a grown man, Atreus has found that getting rid of the curse is proving to be very hard, even for a man of his means.

To this end he has essentially bought himself a place in the faithful of Sune Firehair, the Goddess of Beauty. While his money is more than welcome though, he is not and to this end the temple's priests give him a false vision, sending him on a near impossible quest to find the mystical/mythical valley of Langdarma and to bring back a vial of sparkling water from the Fountain of Infinite Grace. Do this they claim, and his looks would be restored to normal. Utterly convinced by the vision, he and his ogre bodyguard Yago set off at once.

I became a Denning fan after the Athens novels, where he did his best works. I had high hopes for this book, and the story I thought was great, but the ending? It just ended out of nowhere.
