The text below is taken from a description by TSR on the reverse of the actual product:

'Who will be the new gods?  The God of Strife is dead, destroyed in his attacks on Tantras, and Midnight and her allies have recovered the first Tablet of Fate - one of a pair of artifacts that will return the gods to their former glory and save the Realms from the fallen deities' wrath.
To complete their quest, though, the heroes must travel across the world to Waterdeep, City of Splendors, and even pass into the Realm of the Dead.  But both Cyric and Myrkul, God of Death, want the Tablets of Fate for their own dark ends, and they will stop at nothing to capture Midnight - even if it means the destruction of the Realms'.

 Again this novel is better for its significance than how it was written.

It did however serve as a great introduction to the city of Waterdeep - covering great areas of it and also introducing many of its inhabitants, Durnan , Khelben etc.

I didnt like the way that at the end they had to have Ao go and report to some higher power though.

Cover - Not a bad cover, with a nice view of Waterdeep, including the Yawning Portal, in the background.
