SCRIBE-award-winning author, Erin M. Evans, continues the riveting tale of her Sundering character, Farideh, as she becomes embroiled in a Forgotten Realms-flavored game of thrones. In a direct follow-up to the third book in the Sundering series, The Adversary, young warlock Farideh falls into the midst of a battle for the throne of Cormyr. As the war brought on by the Sundering rages across Faern, princes and princesses, wizards and rogues scheme to capture the seat of power of the Land of the Purple Dragon - with Farideh and her allies caught squarely in the middle.

For some reason it took me a little effort to get fully invested in this story. Perhaps it was the duration between "Fire in the Blod" and "the Adversary", perhaps the abrupt change in sceanery. Regardless, by the time I had finished the first few chapters, I was fully in!
This is only the second book I've read from Erin Evans; however, I am dieing to read the next book. I'm actually planning to go back and read the first two novels and maybe even the second two in anticipation of the fifth.
First audio book for me.. and the voice acting at first was a struggle.. you always have a concept of how the characters would be or names pronounced..most likely why people chirp her however after a couple chapters it was hypnotizing.. Dina used a couple voices to identify with main characters. easy to fall into the story like a movie of sorts in your mind! The sample chapters are too easy to cast premature judgement.. aduibooks have a new respect for me.
That said I read book 3 and now have listened to 4.. I will be going back to 1 and 2 for more of the back story beginnings and definitely 5 and 6 to finish it off. It seems like Erin carries mutiple story arcs forward and keeps things interesting and I look forward to reading/listening to the rest.
Farideh continues to move to the beat of her own drum in Cormyr despite the influences of the many nobles that take careful stock of her abilities. Lots of great interaction with Dahl that truly becomes better as the story moves along, even better Tiamat shows up in an unexpected way.
better then the earlier books in the serie.
it was just awesome, everything i wanted from this serie :D :D
just sad i need to wait for the next one :P
Evans does a brilliant job at juxtaposing old school Cormyr with the brimstone angels
