Kurzbeschreibung

1. April 2014 The Sundering

In the fifth book of the multi-author Sundering series, New York Times best-selling author Troy Denning sends an embittered paladin, Kleef Kenric, on 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 Kenric 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. This divine gift makes him an excellent ally—and a target for those who wish corral his powers.
 
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 noblewoman, an accomplished thief, and a mysterious short pudgy man exuding a faint odor of decay. With the forces of Shade tracking their every step, they travel to the Underdark to thwart the rise of the goddess of Death, but before long Kleef learns that his allies hide dangerous secrets—secrets that could destroy not only Kleef but the very fabric of the Forgotten Realms.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Immensely Satisfying 4. April 2014
Von Kelly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Set during the Era of Upheaval, The Sundering is a multi-author event chronicling the adventures of Faerûn’s heroes, from those just Chosen to some of the Realms most enduring characters. Troy Denning’s novel, The Sentinel, is the penultimate entry in the series. As such, it is suitably thrilling from beginning to end.

Like many during the Era of Upheaval, Kleef Kenric has spent his life worshipping a long-forgotten god. It is said that so long as one person carries a god in their heart, that god is not dead. Helm, The Watcher, god of guardians, could not save his father. While others accept bribes and trade favours for knighthood, Kleef stubbornly clings to the tenets of his faith – coming to the defense of those who ask, leaving his career with the city guard stalled at the rank of Topsword. Kleef’s unswerving faith has turned him bitter.

While battling to win free of Marsember, Kleef accepts payment from a merchant in order to clear the way. He uses the gold to motivate the guards beneath his command to do the job they are already sworn to do. His guilt over the act is not easily rationalised but with priests holding up the evacuation with their theatrics and Shadovar threatening the city, he has little choice but to rally his men the only way he can.

While tracking the Shadovar, he comes to the aid of a mysterious pair, Joelle Emmeline and her short and odiferous companion, Malik. Kleef fights back wave after wave of Shadovar and Joelle and Malik flee across a bridge toward the noble house of Seasilver. They are observed from the balcony by Lady Arietta Seasilver, a young noblewoman who believes she is the Chosen of Siamorphe. Taking up her bow, Arietta joins the fight. Thus fate combines four destinies of four people trying to serve their gods.

The Sundering refers to the separation of Abeir from Toril. While the living (and sort of living) denizens of the world deal with the fallout of the Era of Upheaval – from the Great Rain to falling earthmotes to the literal upheaving of earth – the gods are battling for supremcy. Often, they do so through their Chosen. Joelle and Malik are on a quest for Sune. They carry the Eye of Gruumsh as a gift from one god to another. As such a gift would foil Shar’s plans for the Ever After, the Shadovar are keen to get their hands on the Eye. So are the orcs. The Eye is one of their sacred relics.

Their journey to the Underchasm is frought with adventure. Arietta sacrifices her family and Kleef feels he is sacrificing his principles for a woman who will never return his ardent regard. Joelle uses her god-given charm to ensure everyone follows her plan and Malik is obstinate in his deviancy. By the time the four arrive at Grumbar’s Temple, alliances have shifted many times – as has each companion’s idea of what it means to be Chosen.

It’s this last that really captured my attention while reading The Sentinel. Kleef’s struggle to defend his faith, to himself and those around him is heart-wrenching. In order to succeed on this quest, he has to do away with his bitterness and regret. When he finally does, I reached for the tissue box. Arietta’s journey is equally compelling. She has only been told she is the Chosen of Siamorpeh and as such, has taken her role for granted. This revelation rocks her ideas and ideals, and ultimately brings her closer to what she really wants to be.

I really enjoyed this book and as has happened every time I pick up a new volume of ‘The Sundering’, I am inspired to look for other works by the author. Troy Denning’s writing is accessible and easy to digest. I read The Sentinel in two devoted sessions, breaking only for dinner. As mentioned above, what really makes this book stand out are the characters, particularly Kleef and Arietta. Their thoughts and actions were so appropriate to their situations. At no point did either feel unreal or overwrought. Malik was fascinating in his own grimace-worthy manner. Though he is not likeable, I did manage to muster empathy for him. I’m still trying to decide how I feel about Joelle. I think perhaps she is actually the most devious and unsympathetic of that pair.

The conclusion to The Sentinel was another tissue box moment and another step forward in the world event. Overall, this is an immensely satisfying book.

‘The Sundering’ is nearly done. Only one volume remains: The Herald: The Sundering, Book VI by Ed Greenwood. Through all six books are linked only tenuously, I have enjoyed the experience of reading several stories surrounding the same event. Each has advanced the world narrative and each has introduced me to another, smaller world of characters. My only complaint would be the steadily growing pile of books behind me as I discover new authors whose voices I must further explore.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Solid Four out of Five! 1. April 2014
Von Skuldren - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
The Sentinel is a fun fantasy tale that sets a band of heroes on an adventure to save the world. A watchmen, a noble, a thief, and a murderer must deliver the eye of an orc god to rescue Toril from Shar’s destruction. Along the way, they fight Shadovar, orcs, ghouls and zombies, crossing oceans, forests and even the Underchasm itself. The characters keep things interesting with their shifting motivations. However, saving the world comes at a high price, and author Troy Denning keeps the reader guessing at who will pay the cost.

“There are no truths more dangerous than terrible truths,” Malik said. “Those are the kind no one wishes to see.”

Featured on the cover is one of the main characters. Kleef is a topsword in the Marsember Watch. He’s a Chosen of the god Helm. Yet his life has not been very special. The ranks of the city guard are rife with corruption. Kleef’s sense of duty and fairness has caused him to be overlooked for promotions. He has little to show for his devotion to Helm. A good fighter with a big sword, Kleef is a character who has much to discover about himself. His flaws, his god’s gifts, and the mysterious magic sword that he wields are all things he must explore.

Sadly not pictured on the cover is Arietta. This story is as much her’s as it is Kleef’s. She is a noble’s daughter and a follower of Siamorphe. Like Kleef, she goes through a journey of self-discovery. Her stout beliefs of courage, duty and leadership bring her into a quest to save the world. Unlike Kleef, though, she must make tougher sacrifices and work twice as hard to survive the adventure. Her god may grant the gift of leadership, but when it comes to combat, she must rely on herself to persevere.

“Are you truly that devoted, Malik?” Joelle finally asked. “You would die for me?”

“Die?”

“You said you were devoted,” Joelle reminded him. “Aren’t you?”

Malik hesitated. “Would dying truly be necessary?”

Then there is the thief of hearts and the Seraph of lies rounding out the team of heroes. Joelle is the Chosen of Sune, the god of love. Malik is the Chosen of Cyric, the god of lies. They are an unlikely duo working together to try to serve their gods. When they join paths with Kleef and Arietta, it would seem to be divine intervention. But everyone has their own motivations which adds to the complexity of the plot.

Up against them in their quest is the shade prince Yder and an army of orcs. Yder’s inclusion in the story adds for some nice tie-ins, something this book does well. There are lots of mentions to events that occurred in Paul S. Kemp’s books in regards to Netheril and Rivalen’s incident in Ondulin. The Shadovar are taking over Cormyr and the story reflects that. There are also lots of moments highlighting the changes the world is going through, and direct signs of Aberil and Tori’s separation. Denning even ties into the previous book in the Sundering series, The Reaver, by including the Gnome smuggler Greathorne. All of these elements bring together the other stories in the Realms and The Sundering to make The Sentinel feel like an even grander story. It’s not just a little adventure, but an observation and participation in the separation of worlds. History is in the making, and by tying into those other stories, this is the first book which really makes this feel like a series, like all those other adventures mattered and had purpose.

Without delving too much into more into the details, The Sentinel is a fun fantasy story that’s worth checking out. It has good characters, lots of action, and a variety of adventures as the heroes endeavor to deliver the Eye of Gruumsh in an effort to save the world. As part of The Sundering series, it does a lot to move the overall plot forward as the world’s split. All in all, I give The Sentinel a solid four out of five. It’s a lot of fun.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A heart pounding adventure from start to finish that brings you along for the ride! 14. April 2014
Von Benp40 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Wow wow wowww. Man, what an awesome adventure. This novel was just great, and I absolutely loved the protagonist, Kleef. Gruff human warriors can feel overdone in fantasy settings, so you have be innovative and considerate with their qualities, virtues, and challenges to keep things interesting. Well, I seriously couldn't get enough of Kleef and what made him tick. Personally, I've been waiting for a good Clint Eastwood-type personality (rough around the edges but a good guy at heart) to come along and view the world through his own weathered personal code.

Furthermore, the dynamic between him and his long deceased god was sobering and very significant as we can all relate to losing faith in something important to us at one point or another. Watching Kleef’s (and his companions) growth over the course of the novel was a treat and I had a hard time putting the book down. I want to end by saying as a long time Forgotten Realms fan, this novel was truly satisfying, and it was just awesome to see one of my favorite deities, Helm, get some well-deserved limelight.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good Standalone 13. April 2014
Von Mitch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Not sure about the context of the story. It is kinda of handed to you on a plate. No imagination on the readers part of who is bad and who is good, who will really do what at the right time et cetera.

There was one place, in the entire book, where that was a surprise and maybe that was why the book was written as it was, for that one moment, but I like a lot of unknowns. Characters you think you know and then they do something you totally don't expect; over and over.
