4.0 out of 5 starsLost Gods series is worth a read
Reviewed in the United States on October 24, 2013
Tymora’s Luck was another great adventure in the Forgotten Realms series and specifically a Jeff Grub and Kate Novak collaboration and I do enjoy their collaborations. I thoroughly enjoyed the story even if it did become a bit tedious at one stage. The story seemed to lose track of the core, but it did get back on track and it had a good if somewhat predictable ending. The authors were certainly able to work in the odd red herring and surprise. I am looking forward to reading the next instalment.

I have really enjoyed all the stories with Finder in them. I hope there is more to come. I wish the stories had more characters in coming to though. It would have been nice to see Olive and alias in these.
When I purchased this book I didn't realize that it was part of a series, so I will have to go back and read the other two. Still, I found the book interesting and entertaining. A previous review stated that the gods were infantile, but when compared to the antics of the Greek and Roman gods, it's no different. Also, since I have just finished the Shadowdale trilogy and started the Avatar trilogy, I was intrigued to get a little more understanding of the various planes and realms the gods inhabit and a hint of the vastness of the "multiverse". This book is written a lot different than the others I have read from the Forgotten Realms, adding to its charm (probably why I enjoyed "The Night Parade", too). If you're looking for something a little different, then this book might be for you.
I've always being a fan of the forgotten realms, and the story of Finder and Joel is especially intriguing. The plot is excellent, though a little unrealistic as powerful gods like Selune and Finder send poor Joel to multiple planes to thwart a plot involving the lady luck. It is also rather unbelievable that a god of good could be so totally blinded by a god of evil right beside him. Still, the writing is excellent, the plot flowing smoothly. The characters are likable, especially Jas, Joel and Finder. It is well crafted, and that is all that matters for a fantasy book. After all, 'reality' and 'possibility' should not be the judging criteria of fantasy fiction.
5.0 out of 5 starsPerfect novel for Realms or D&D in general

This book is a great representation of what the Dungeons and Dragons universe is all about. You have battling gods, some dead, some alive, planar travel, references to spelljamming, crazy magic and intrigue going all over the place, and great action. The main characters each have their own problems, yet they have to walk a veritable mine field of craziness to survive. This book is the third in the series, but it works great as a stand alone novel.
