Kurzbeschreibung

1. Oktober 2013 Forgotten Realms: The Sundering (Buch 2)

In the 2nd book of the multi-author Sundering series launched by New York Times best-selling author R.A. Salvatore, the shadow legacy of Erevis Cale lives on even as his old foe Mephistopheles seeks to stamp it out at any cost. Cale’s son Vasen—unmoored in time by the god Mask—has thus far been shielded from the archdevil’s dark schemes, alone among the servants of the Lord of Light who have raised him since birth.
 
Living in a remote abbey nestled among the Thunder Peaks of Sembia, Vasen is haunted by dreams of his father, trapped in the frozen hell of Cania. He knows the day will come when he must assume his role in the divine drama unfolding across Faerûn. But Vasen knows not what that role should be . . . or whether he is ready to take it on. He only knows what his father tells him in dreams—that he must not fail.
 
Enter Drasek Riven, a former compatriot of Erevis Cale, now near divine and haunted by dreams of his own—he too knows the time to act is near. Shar, the great goddess of darkness, looks to cast her shadow on the world forever. Riven has glimpsed the cycle of night she hopes to complete, and he knows she must be stopped.
 
At the crossroads of divine intrigue and mortal destiny, unlikely heroes unite to thwart the powers of shadow and hell, and the sundering of worlds is set on its course.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Kemp rules supreme! 3. April 2014
Von A.F.H.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Finally we see the completion of the Mask cycle, which was never really cleared up in the prior trilogies. That alone makes this book a must buy for any avid fan of the Shadowstorm stories around Erevis Cale.
Add to that a BRILLIANT author with a fluid, suspending writing style.
One of the best authors, in my eyes THE best, the D&D multiverse has ever seen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Großartiger FR Roman - aber untauglich als Einstieg 4. November 2013
Von gdf VINE-PRODUKTTESTER
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Eine kleine Vorbemerkung, warum dies eine höchst subjektive Rezension wird: Ich bin bekennender FR fanboy, Erevis Cale ist einer meiner Lieblings-FR-Charaktere und ich mag Paul Kemp.

"The Godborn" ist der zweite Band der glücklicherweise nicht miteinander zusammenhängenden Serie, mit der WoC versucht, den Wechsel von D&D 4 auf D&D 5 und die damit zusammenhängenden (sehr angenehmen) veränderungen in den Forgotten Realms zu vermarkten. Der erste Band (weinerliche Selbstbetrachtungen von Drizzt und die Wiedergeburt all seiner totgeglaubter Gefährten)hat keine Mut gemacht für dieses Unterfangen, daher war ich schon etwas resigniert, als ich den zweiten Band anfing.
Und wurden meine Befürchtungen enttäuscht. Kemp ist immer noch so gut und spannend lesbar wie früher, egal ob er über alt vertraute Charaktere schreibt oder die Abenteuer von uns bisher unbekannten Helden (o.ä.) schildert, er bietet HIGH Fantasy der besten und inzwischen dunkelsten Art. Er schreibt noch nicht auf dem power level eines Steve Erikson (gut so!), aber man muss mit Avataren, direktem göttlichem Eingreifen, Ebenensprüngen und allem was ab lvl 18 dazu gehört rechnen. Dieses Buch schildert uns keine junge Helden auf ihren ersten Fahrten, hier stellen sich Charaktere aus dem Epic Level Handbook gegen Götter.
Ja, es ist arg kurz, ja, manche Passagen hätten mehr Zeit gebraucht und mehr Beschreibungen wären manchmal angebracht, ja, es ist inzwischen dunkler als die meisten Warhammer Romane, aber - "The Godborn" ist der Roman, wegen dem ich wieder Lust auf die Realms bekommen habe. Wegen diesem einem Buch will ich wieder Realms leiten und werde sogar D&D 5 eine Chance geben.

Nach einem von mir mit gemischten Gefühlen gelesenen ersten Band, der die Truppe rund um Drizzt do Urden im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes "Wiederbelebt", bestellte ich mir mit einigermaßen großen Erwartungen Band 2.

Die Reihe der großen Weltenzerschlagung ist eigentlich keine Reihe: es handelt sich mehr um sechs nach bisherigem Vernehmen wohl sehr verschiedene Scheinwerferspots auf parallel verlaufende Handlungsstränge während der großen Zerwürfnisse in den "Vergessenen Reichen".

Die Story kurz umrissen:

Alte Götter sind keine mehr, neue Götter wurden aus widerwilligen Antihelden mit neuer Macht "erschaffen" - die sind sich nur nicht so sicher, ob sie diese Macht auch wollen und bekämpfen sich aufs Äußerste mit den dämonischen Kräften der Höllen im Kampf um die göttlichen Machtgeschenke. Und zwischen all dem ist der Sohn des in den Reichen sagenumwobenen Erevis Cale geboren. Vasen Cale ahnt zunächst recht wenig von seiner Herkunft, die ihm nur in einigen Alpträumen wieder und wieder schemenhaft begegnet.

Inmitten der dunklen Ereignisse in den Reichen, in die Vasen mehr oder weniger geworfen wird, nimmt er trotz seiner eindeutigen Herkunft als "Schatten" einer komplett gegensätzliche Rolle bei den Paladinen, Kämpfern & Priestern von Amaunator ein, der über das Licht & die Zeit als Gottheit wacht. Dort wird Vasen großgezogen und als dient Amaunator indem er Pilger zu beschützt, die den gefährlichen Weg in die Abtei antreten.

Nichts könnte also gegensätzlicher sein: Vasen, ein Kind der Schatten und Sohn eines legendären Schattenassassinen als Diener des Lichts?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Book 2 of the Sundering tops Book 1 in every regard! 1. Oktober 2013
Von J. Stewart - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The Godborn caught me off guard, having just read The Companions I had that image of the Forgotten Realms in my brain and beyond the Drizzt books the Forgotten Realms books I recall off the top of my head included the Baldur's Gate novels and some of the Harper's books, all of which, with one exception, were similar in style and tone, which was a fairly standard one for fantasy novels. The Godborn right off the bat shatters that tone and makes it's reader well aware that it is a dark novel full of a conflict between light and dark or as I would say, "hope vs. despair" and captures each side of it perfect.

Focusing on several characters, one being the son of Erevis Cale, another Gerak a companion of his, Orovis, and two cursed brothers, we get to see how pieces are moved around this world like an epic chess match but as each piece is moved, the board, covered by a "fog of war" (to use an RTS term) is revealed little by little, catching each side off guard. The novel captures the spirit of little guys being part of a massive game between higher powers so well that I tried to figure out what was really going on, ahead of the character I was following in the novel and it drew me deeper and deeper into the novel.

This story has everything from love to loss, hope and despair, joy and sorrow. There are moments that make you smile and moments that make you cry or want to throw the novel at the wall, but you wont, because the story that Paul S. Kemp was woven together is so intriguing that you cant stop and once one arrives to the last 30% of this novel, this escalate so quickly that there is no stopping.

There are no weak characters here, some are definitely more favored than others, my favorite arcs to read were the brothers (the cursed ones that I won't spoil much of here), Gerak, and Rivalin. Each of them get a great moment or two to shine that really make you want to fist pump and shout and each get a moment where you feel sorry for them and want to comfort. Altogether they were great well rounded characters. Not to say that others were bad, they were not, but these were my favorites and kept me in.

Not to say too much about this novel, but THE GODBORN comes out October 1 and I fully recommend everyone buys it. I would give it a solid A as far as fantasy goes.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Another great novel for Forgotten Realms 1. Oktober 2013
Von Craig B. Meyer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
REVIEW OF ADVANCED READERS COPY

Paul S Kemp does it again with his upcoming book GODBORN. GODBORN is the second book in the Sundering Series taking place in the Forgotten Realms universe. The book has been a long time coming. I have to say that the book's delay is one of the reasons that I had given up on Forgotten Realms. I can now forgive them for the wait. It was a great read with Mr. Kemp demonstrating his talent for storytelling.

GODBORN isn't just a by the numbers swords and sorcery novel. It's about people dealing with difficult issues and overcoming challenges. Paul S Kemp manages to draw me into the story and start caring for his characters. I definitely recommend this book. However, if you have never read Paul S Kemps forgotten realms books before, I would recommend you start off with Twilight Falling: The Erevis Cale Trilogy, Book I

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Culmination of a Great Story 1. Oktober 2013
Von Skuldren - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
The Godborn is certainly a book full of surprises for Erevis Cale fans. For those new to Paul S. Kemp's famous shadow warrior, you're in for something different. As the title implies, divinity plays a large role in this dark, dramatic adventure. Some characters seek it out, while others try to avoid it. Yet within this book of fantasy, there's an interwoven thread of horror that's sure to play on reader's emotions. It's rather fitting considering one of the antagonists in the novel is a ruler of Hell.

If you are new to the Erevis Cale series, The Godborn serves as the long awaited climax of the Twilight Wars Trilogy. In those books, Erevis Cale, Drasek Riven, and Magadon the half-devil mind mage try to stop a shade named Rivalen from bringing about the end of the world. Rivalen is a Shadovar prince and a worshiper of Shar, the Lady of Loss. Shar is a goddess who seeks to bring sweet oblivion to the universe by destroying one world at a time. Through the Twilight War, Erevis and his colleagues waged a war against shadows, end up with a piece of a god's divinity, and do battle with the ruler of the eighth hell...Magadon's father.

In The Godborn, the story mostly follows Erevis Cale's son, Vasen. Through dreams and guidance from characters like Riven, Vasen must save his father from the eighth hell. Along the way, he makes some friends who become very enjoyable new characters. Long time fans may be disappointed that there isn't much of Erevis or Mags in this book. However, Riven and the Shadovar prince Brennulus play key parts with some very nice scenes. Some gigantic battles take place, along with some highly personal ones. There's a lot to enjoy.

One of the surprising elements, though, is the horror story twisted within the plot. Two new characters, Sayeed and Zeeahd, take part in the most violent and repulsive scenes in the book. They enter as mysterious wanderers in search of something. But it quickly becomes evident that something is not right about these two. Horrors follow in their wake and Paul S. Kemp gives Stephen King a run for his money. I have to admit I wasn't expecting the horror elements and they seemed a little out of place and over the top. However, the things these two characters do certainly provoke strong emotions. It got to the point where I couldn't wait for them to be punished or better yet killed.

Aside from the horror scenes, divinity plays a big part in the story. From the events of the Twilight Wars Trilogy, Rivalen, Riven and Mephistopheles (Magadon's father) are all part divine, having consumed a piece of the god Mask. Riven finds divinity to be a burden and wants to get rid of it. Mephistopheles simply hungers for more and wants to kill Riven and Rivalen to get it. Then there's Vasen who is the key to releasing the divinity and fulfilling Mask's ultimate plan to avenge himself against the goddess Shar. Yet Vasen posses no divinity. He's not even as powerful as his dad was in most of the series. But Vasen has faith. His faith in divinity, in the divine Amaunator, god of the dawn, is his strength. Balanced with shadows in his blood, he walks the darkness and the light.

For casual readers, this is a fantasy story with intriguing characters and a significant touch of horror. For the longtime readers such as myself, this is the culmination of a great story arc. That also means there's a lot riding on this story. Does Erevis Cale come back to life? Does Mask triumph over Shar? Can the new characters compete with the likes of Erevis, Riven, Jak and Mags? Is there a payoff? Well, I won't spoil anything suffice to say that yes, the new characters are really good and the payoff is well worth it. The Godborn tackles a lot and Kemp gets it done. There is closure at the end, as well as new beginnings. Having read all of the Erevis Cale books, I was very satisfied with the ending. All the twists and turns and emotional pitfalls led to some great scenes, great characters, and a great story. I give it a five out of five.

2.0 von 5 Sternen WOTC screwed this book up - no spoilers 10. Oktober 2013
Von Paladin17 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Here's the biggest problem with The Godborn, and it's a glaringly obvious one if you're ready any of Paul S. Kemp's other Forgotten Realms books (if you haven't, you should read the full Cale series, all 6 books are excellent) - the problem is, this story was originally meant to be told over 3 books, and stupidly, WOTC crammed it into one book - as a result, much of the back story for new characters seems extremely rushed, lost, or just entirely abridged - the story moves along way too quickly in certain parts, in other parts you question why a specific character is even there.

For example, Vasen Cale is the main character in the book - we see him at his birth, and then suddenly he's 30 years old.

Gerak - why is this character even here? He goes from somewhat hapless woodsman with only 4 fletched arrows to effectively morphing into Legolas rapid-firing arrows with extreme accuracy and apparently an unending supply of arrows. WTH???

Orsin - I mean, where is the backstory here? He just randomly shows up and says he and Vasen have known each other in past lives?

Sayeed / Zayad - um, ok, brand new characters with effectively zero backstory. Thumbs cut off and suddenly they've made a deal with Meph? How did they encounter him? Why did he select them, who are the cats, etc etc etc. I mean, these kinds of story gaps are representative of one of two things: (1) The author isn't good - which we know isn't true, Paul's previous Cale stories are pretty good, or (2) the editors decided to jam stuff into a 300 page book that should have been 3 300 page books. Terrible.

Mephistopheles, Rivalen, Riven - I mean, these characters were so good in previous books and now they're practically non-existent. And what is the outcome with Meph/Asmodeus? Zero resolution there and again, what is the point of partially telling a story? And by the way, Riven/Rivalen - I know they are similar names, but make sure the editor at least catches the errors - the names were swapped multiple times incorrectly and the whole production just appears sloppy.

I get it - look, if you've read Kemp's stuff before, like me, you're going to buy this book to get some kind of resolution. But man, it's a disappointing read. There's some good stuff there for sure, but the whole thing felt like reading Cliff Notes instead of the usually great/meaty story that you've come to expect from Paul Kemp.

2.5 stars, and another failure for WOTC.

Still better than The Companions, which was really bad.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An incredible novel featuring some old friends. 2. Dezember 2013
Von Terry Garland - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Wow. I read both the Erevis Cale trilogy and the Shadow War trilogy, and they're both excellent works of fiction. In fact, Cale and friends were some of my favorite fiction characters by the end, hands down. The Godborn was...incredible, by the measure of a bar that was already set fairly high. The tension and menace in this novel are palpable, I felt genuine dread reading the descriptions of the plains of Sembia. All novels set out, I think, to paint a picture in your mind of the world the author is trying to create. This one succeeds admirably, and I was most glad to find that some old friends had a bit of life left in them yet, and were up to the challenges set forth by a more dangerous and treacherous Realms than I found them in last. Reading this was a fantastic experience, and I look forward to the next time I get to walk in the world of Paul S. Kemp.
