What to say about book in setting that is so dried up, that hardly any juice comes at all. Some of you sceptics, and cynics out there will surely think what I have thought first time this book came into my hands. "Another lousy piece that is meant only for Realms fanatics to buy." Well, I was wrong. I didn't read Avatar Trilogy, so I didn't know the background of this novel (maybe it is better). Basic plot (You can read it on the blurb, but nevertheless) is as follows: The Lord of Dead - Cyric is trying to create the book called Cyrinshad which would bind all mortals (and gods) to his will when they read them, Of course the good goods can not allow it, so Mystra, Torm and some others which I will not reveal form an alliance that should break the Cyrics plan. It may seem as a lousy plot, but the new thing is that main characters are Gods, so it's very interesting to see the world trough theirs perspective. For the litteral sake, the book is very poorly written, but You should put that out of Your mind. If You look for complex go and read Tolstoj, and if You just want to have some fun for a few afternoons, and do not want to break head on the matter what was author trying to say, buy and read this book.
