Synopsis:


A blood witch is planning on taking over a forest and then some towns, or something. She fools the local oracles who have foiled past plots by pretending to be their god. She raises necromantic forces to take over.

Concurrently, a man with angelic blood in him, a devotee to Hoar, the god of justice [you have NO idea how much I laughed at that] is a wandering justice dispensor. He wanders into the situation and is attempting to stop the blood witch.

Finally, you have 2 sisters, one an oracle, one a hunter who are both fighting to protect their town from complete and utter devastation. Enemies within and without make the job that much harder. Plus dead parents and all the baggage that means.

My Thoughts:

This was trash. It was a poor storyline, poorly executed and poorly written. Davis knows his grammar rules, thankfully, so there were no aggregious misuses of your/you're, etc. But telling the story? My goodness. The motivation for everyone was clear as mud.

I completely skimmed the last 25% and STILL had a tough time finishing. It didn't help that I was coming off a book that I also didn't like, so this was like rubbing salt in the wound.

It did force me to decide if I wanted to continue this Wizards sub-series and the answer was a resounding “NO!”. Sometimes Forgotten Realms books are just junk and you have to chuck them out the window to keep your sanity.

I was pleasantly surprised at this book. This is a novel based in the Forgotten Realms, specifically the city of Waterdeep, one of the settings for the Dungeons and Dragons game. Waterdeep itself has been written about many times, so this book is not about the city itself. It uses the city as a backdrop for a nonstop adventure novel. In true Ed Greenwood fashion, the combat starts in the first chapter and continues almost uninterrupted for 3 or 4 whirlwind days. The characters are very unusual - a deva, a night hag, a moon elf warlock, and something called an avolakia. Together and somewhat separately this odd cast must stop 2 different infernal plots. Where the book fails a bit is actually giving us the sense of what the 2 plots are, and why there is a moral dilemma involved. Otherwise, this wasn't bad, though it is light on conversation, background, and other minor plot items. Non-stop action it has.… (mere)

This is a book that is weird and good. I loved the story and the main character. The way of doing magic is gruesome but makes for a effect-and-reaction in this way of magic. Loved it.
