This book was ok The writing was ok The story and even the characters were quite ok I find it muchfrustrating to read an ok book rather than an outright bad book At least with a bad book you can kvetch and complain and marvel at the horror of what you are, for some reason, reading.With an ok book, I just feel stuck in a monotonous hell that slowly deadens the soul.To add to the experience, I had to write this little review 3 times as it kept disappearing A perfect ending to this book r This book was ok The writing was ok The story and even the characters were quite ok I find it muchfrustrating to read an ok book rather than an outright bad book At least with a bad book you can kvetch and complain and marvel at the horror of what you are, for some reason, reading.With an ok book, I just feel stuck in a monotonous hell that slowly deadens the soul.To add to the experience, I had to write this little review 3 times as it kept disappearing A perfect ending to this book reading experience Ok Firmly in the not bad camp It reads a bit easier than the three before it, essentially as this novel s author doesn t lay on the endless fantasy tropes While it s a solid read, it never rises above good and in the end, it s forgettable. TSR went all out for this sequel to the Avatar trilogy, loading it with several firsts a full color cardstock map, interior illustrations, and about 60pages than any of the paperback Forgotten Realms novels published up to that point roughly 20,000 words longer With all of that added effort and expense, I am surprised that it was not advertised in the back of their other books published shortly

surprised that it was not advertised in the back of their other books published shortly prior maybe their publishing schedule changed too quickly for this Fortunately, the content was of sufficient quality to support this effort Evenfortunately, it was not written by either of the authors who wrote the truly awful original Avatar trilogy Scott Ciencin and Troy Denning under the pen name of Richard Awlinson James Lowder has proven himself capable of spinning an entertaining yarn in his prior Forgotten Realms novels In the introduction to Prince of Lies, Lowder reveals that he was a first time editor for the Avatar trilogy, which goes some way to explain how terrible those books were Presumably he has aexperienced editor working on his own books Prince of Lies takes place ten years after the events of the Avatar trilogy, which detailed how changes in the pantheon of gods of Faerun took place, with the mortal protagonists ultimately taking on godhood Now, Cyric, new god of strife, murder, and the dead and maybe illusion also at the time of the story , plots to usurp evenpower, opposed most directly by the new goddess of magic, Mystra formerly known as Midnight Other deities are involved, as well as mortals and the dead The plot is all over the place, but somehow it works amazingly well It details a shift of godly powers in a vastlyengaging and entertaining way in a single book than the Avatar trilogy did in three The gods, as portrayed here, are very, well, human They are moody, conniving, usually take human form, and are in fact quite limited in power Here, this allows them to remain interesting characters It is quite in keeping with the concept of the gods in your typical DD tabletop game beings that mortals could potentially interact with directly and be influenced by mortal actions However this portrayal is not consistent across other Forgotten Realms novels In particular, Douglas Niles books set in the Moonshae Isles use a muchnebulous concept of the gods, who existas amorphous entities acting from a distant cosmic realm Both are perfectly fine and fit with the different story lines, and in DD play the gods could just be a bunch of cats batting planets around if that s how you want to have it, but my point is that some consistency in this publishing line could have been a welcome editorial choice Probably the most fun of the D D novels I read in June Instead of being angsty adventurers, most of the main characters are the deities of the Forgotten Realms Cyric, main god of evil is up to, well, evil and Mystra the goddess of magic is opposing him I think at times the book is trying to be satire but the writing isn t strong enough to really pull it off Probably the most fun of the DD novels I read in June Instead of being

nuovo dio degli inferi, pronto a tramare per diventare il pi potente di tutti, e Midnight Mystra ad opporsi alle sue macchinazioni A mio avviso il miglior libro della serie, estremamente diverso dai volumi precedenti, e maggiormente votato all intrigo ed ai patti segreti fra gli dei La scrittura di Lowder decisamente migliore rispetto a quella di Awlinson, e di questo il libro ne Prince Of Lies

the supernatural and has some really solid scenes Thought the ending was a touch confusing though, a few too many surprises that strained credulity even within the fantastical setting. never trust a
