    When the gods are banished from the heavens, they must travel through Faern in the guise of mortals. When four companions, last survivors of the Company of the Lynx, find themselves in possession of a mysterious amulet, they must escape death at the hand of Bane, god of murder. When magic itself runs wild, no one can say that the most innocent of spells will not destroy the world.

    Middling storyline and uninspired delivery

    I would recommend this for readers who want to expand their knowledge of the Forgotten Realms and provide a backdrop for other novels in the universe...Show More »

When a friend betrays them, Midnight and her companions can trust no one.

    Drowning in the Sins of the Past

    Sigh.... This book almost works.
    "Shadowdale" was a complete catastrophe as I spent quite a lot of time on explaining.

    An all-new version of one of the key titles in the entire Forgotten Realms novel line. This title is the fourth in a series of recovers of the popular Avatar series.

This re-released series features a cohesive cover design and all-new art.

    Great story, terrible narrator.

    Once again a perfectly wonderful story ruined by Nicole Greevy. She has a terrible grasp of the English language. For instance, her inability to dist..Show More »

    If one word is false then they all are.

    Another great story by Mr. Denning. Just not impressed with Nicole's story telling abilities. Still, a great story.
