Journey to the dark side of the City of Splendors. Jinn is an angel trapped in mortal flesh, sent down from the heavens to fight, die, and be reincarnated endlessly in the war against evil. But over the years, revenge supplanted justice, and now he lives only to wreck vengeance--whatever the cost--on the dark angel of Asmodeus who killed his lover. A series of brutal occult murders, left like breadcrumbs for him to follow, lead Jinn straight to the dark angel--an invitation to a final battle for the soul of Waterdeep. But will he still be able to choose the path of justice when he is so close to his enemy, after lifetimes of failure? Circle of Skulls is a dark fantasy of fallen angels, desperate rituals, and a mysterious series of occult murders. Set in the classic City of Splendors and presented by Forgotten Realms® campaign setting creator and celebrated author Ed Greenwood, you don't want to miss out on this exciting glimpse into what the latest edition of the Realms has to offer.… (mere)

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. ( )
