Book Summary

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.

    p> More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog second outing in the multi-author series 'The Sundering' is similar to the first book, "The Companions" in the sense that it heavily relies on the reader being familiar with the earlier books which it relies on - the Twilight War.

    Personally, I had not read them so my review comes from the point of a person who is not familiar with the characters. Hopefully those who do will find this a much nicer read, as I did not enjoy this book at all. The characters were poorly fleshed out and I found none of them interesting. Readers of the original trilogy may find the culminations of some of the characters interesting - I just wondered why a few of the characters were not cut from the book as they did not do anything of interest.

    As for the plot, I felt I was stuck in a D&D campaign where the characters had advanced to too-high a level, and the DM was desperately trying to keep things interesting by throwing in plane travel, godlings, demons and angels. It never works in D&D, and didn't work in this book either.

    Received as an ARC from the publisher.

    Raised in an abbey, Erevis Cale's son Vasen lives a life of peace despite being born of shadow, until he gets caught in the schemes of demons and devils. Can Vasen and his new friend Orsin stop the machinations of Mephistopheles and prevent the world from being destroyed?

    I got this courtesy of NetGalley and Wizards of the Coast.

    When I got the first two books of The Sundering from Netgalley, I assumed they were closely linked. They are not. They both are set in the Forgotten Realms around the same time period but that's about as far as it goes.

    The Godborn is the tale of several beings that are the chosen of various gods, some trying to prevent the Cycle of Night, others trying to stop it. Vasen Cale, son of the presumed deceased Erevis Cale, was whisked forward in time 70 years while still in the womb in order to hide him from his father's enemies. He lives a life of peace in an abbey until trouble comes knocking.

    I was not a tremendous fan of this book, especially compared with The Companions. First of all, the Companions was accessible to me, a Forgotten Realms noob, whereas this one had me in the dark a lot of the time. None of the characters were very likeable or interesting and a lot of the book seemed like filler between battle scenes.

    The thing that stopped me from giving this a one was Paul S. Kemp's writing. I'd like to read something of his not set in the Forgotten Realms and featuring likeable characters. Also, the ending was pretty good, from what I understood of it.

    The Godborn is a hard 2. I'm not sure if I'm going to read the final book in The Sundering series.

    Edit: Young Anthony tells me there are seven books in this series, not three. My relationship with The Sundering has been Sundered.
