As you can see from the title of this review, this book has nothing unique or memorable in it. It's not a bad novel, far from it, but it is simply ordinary, too ordinary maybe.
As ever, Byers offers us a steady and straightforward plot without many surprises and twists in it. A priestess of Umberlee from Myth Nantar wants to bring worshippers back to her deity's empty temples, and decides she should try and stop a rage of dragons ravaging Seros, or Sea of Fallen Stars, as it is better known. Fate (or Umberlee's will) brings her across a spy from Turmish, and together they seek the Cult of the Dragon hideout amidst Seros' numerous islands. The main character (the priestess, whatever her name is) is a fiery zealot at times and at other times a cold and calculating person. It kind of contradicts each other. Anton, the above mentioned Turmian spy, is a type of character that pops up in each of Byers' books - a cunning survivor. The rest of the characters are pretty bleak. It's worth the mention that some of them appear in Mel Odom's trilogy "Threat from the Sea", taking part in the same part of Faerun.
Although almost all elements in this book are average, I do have some minor complaints. Byers' doesn't bother much with descriptions of places and people characters visit, and the book is short in realmslore. Odom did that much better in his books. Of course, he had 900+ pages to fit it in, as opposed to 309 in this book. Besides that, the characters have a prophetic touch to them, or more specifically even their wildest assumptions always turn out to be true. It takes a bit off realism and overall quality of this book.
All in all, I would describe this one as a hybrid between "Threat from the Sea" and "Year of Rogue Dragons" trilogies. If you consider underwater combat and lots of dragons interesting, you should enjoy this book. I didn't. A mediocre FR novel.
