'For all his power as God of Strife and Lord of the Dead, Cyric cannot achieve that which he desires most - revenge on the Goddess of Magic.  To this end, he searches in vain for the soul of Kelemvor Lyonsbane.   Once Cyric's friend and the goddess Midnight's lover, in the time when all three roamed the world as mortals, Kelemvor remains hidden from Cyric by those who would see the mad god overthrown.  But Cyric will risk all to find his quiet nemesis, even the destruction of the Realm of the Dead'.

This book was GREAT!!! It was derfinately a worthy successor of the Avatar Trillogy. Where else do you get to find out about the thoughts, feelings, and beleifs of the gods of Toril. And Best of all is the fact that the book revolves around Cyric, perhaps the coolest god in the Realms.

A great read, Enjoy!
