Product Description

Product Description

In the 2nd book of the multi-author Sundering series launched by New York Times best-selling author R.A. Salvatore, the shadow legacy of Erevis Cale lives on even as his old foe Mephistopheles seeks to stamp it out at any cost. Cale’s son Vasen—unmoored in time by the god Mask—has thus far been shielded from the archdevil’s dark schemes, alone among the servants of the Lord of Light who have raised him since birth.
Living in a remote abbey nestled among the Thunder Peaks of Sembia, Vasen is haunted by dreams of his father, trapped in the frozen hell of Cania. He knows the day will come when he must assume his role in the divine drama unfolding across Faerûn. But Vasen knows not what that role should be . . . or whether he is ready to take it on. He only knows what his father tells him in dreams—that he must not fail.
Enter Drasek Riven, a former compatriot of Erevis Cale, now near divine and haunted by dreams of his own—he too knows the time to act is near. Shar, the great goddess of darkness, looks to cast her shadow on the world forever. Riven has glimpsed the cycle of night she hopes to complete, and he knows she must be stopped.
At the crossroads of divine intrigue and mortal destiny, unlikely heroes unite to thwart the powers of shadow and hell, and the sundering of worlds is set on its course.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read and perfect insight to the FR 19 Mar 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have not really touched Forgotten Realms books for about a decade. The whole realms changed and I never really kept up with it. I like many people wasn't happy at TSR/WOTC change to Toril and it is only recently that I started to get back in to reading FR books. I started off with the Neverwinter and Drizzt books and have moved on to others.

Having read The Sundering Book 1 I felt compelled to read book 2 and I am very glad I did. Great characters, and a couple of bad guys that had me full on ranting and raving at just how much I detested them as individuals but loved how they were written. Perfect. Also this book has given me a full on insight in to why the timeline was jumped ahead. What happened to bring the Shadovar back. What the Gods are doing. What is Shar's aim. Lots of loose ties brought together to allow things to make sense. Well worth ready !! :)

Decent pace to story, but overall a flawed approach with unnecessary violence.

Solid Forgotten realms book, haven't read any of the preceding books which i might recommend, to other like me who are trying to jump back in with the Sundering series as a lot of characters have back stories that don't get fleshed out in the slightest. Although from what i understand this story was originally to be told over 3 books which might explain alot.

4.0 out of 5 stars one of the best FR books 20 May 2014
By Jimbly
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's been a while since I've dipped my toe in the FR but the Sundering has dragged me back. Having Vasen as the main character in this story allows a fresh introduction to previous characters without causing confusion (as I confess I hadn't read any of the previous Cale books). The story stands alone well and given all that's gone before manages to not confuse the reader with vague references to previous novels. The writing is tight and the story never drags. The heroes are not your cardboard cutout fantasy archetypes, the villains (who on the whole are really despicable) still manage to illicit some sympathy from the reader. The feeling of some simmering world wide catastrophe on the horizon is played nicely and the ending is very satisfying. On the whole superb stuff.
