|The text below is taken from a
description by TSR on the reverse of the actual product:
'It was the eve of the
Time of Troubles. The chaos of spilled blood, lawless strife, monsters unleashed,
and avatars roaming Faerun was still to come. Unbeknownst to mortals, the gods had
been summoned together, and among them was Mystra, grown proud and willful in the passing
eons. With the others, she was about to be stripped of her godhood.
Other titles in The Shadow of the Avatar Trilogy:
Like many of Ed Greenwood's books, this is a long series of battles and sinister conversations, with a little humor (the exact same humor that is in all of his books). There is no character development at all - the characters are completely one-dimensional. I do sometimes enjoy action-packed books, but the good guys are never even seriously threatened, and never lose. The other two books in this series are essentially the same. I love Greenwood's RPG contributions and admire his imagination, but almost none of his books are worth reading, unless you want to get all the details of happenings in the Realms.
