New York Times best-selling author Troy Denning makes his long-awaited return to the Forgotten Realms with the penultimate book in the world-shaking Sundering series.
In the fifth book of the multi-author Sundering series kicked off by best-selling author R.A. Salvatore, embittered paladin, Kleef Kenric, finds himself embroiled in a quest to stop evil forces from taking advantage of the chaos rolling across the land of Faerûn and claiming dominion over the entirety of the Realms. Stubbornly clinging to his family's worship of a long-forgotten god, Kleef soon discovers that his god has blessed him with divine gifts, making him one of a new group of Chosen cropping up around the Realms. After battling his way out Marsember, a city besieged on all sides in the wake of the Sundering, he becomes swept up in the mission of a group of odd allies - a warrior princess, an accomplished thief, and a mysterious short pudgy man exuding a faint odor of decay - to thwart the rise of the goddess of Death.
