Tymora's Luck: Forgotten Realmsby Kate Novak, Jeff Grubb
Now a great power has hatched a mad scheme to
Before the Dawn Cataclysm, Moander the Darkbringer corrupted Tyche, Goddess of Luck. In a desperate attempt to preserve Tyche's goodness, the gods clove her in twain, creating two daughter goddesses: Tymora, Lady Luck; and Beshaba, Lady Doom. In the eons since then, the two sisters have existed in total enmity.
Now a great power has hatched a mad scheme to re-create the goddess Tyche by reuniting Tymora and Beshaba, regardless of the potentially calamitous consequences.
In a decision fraught with godly intrigue, Joel, the Rebel Bard, priest of Finder, is chosen to uncover whoever is behind the abduction of the sister goddesses. Aided by his old allies, Holly Harrowslough and Jas, and his new friend, the kender Emilo Haversack, Joel must find a way to prevent the merger of Tymora and Beshaba before disaster overtakes the luckless Realms.
The Forgotten Realms meet Dragonlance meet Planescape in a heart-stoppin gadventure that spans three worlds.

Hold up! If you've not read Finders Bane...don't read this one yet! This is "book two"...Read Finder's Bane 1st if you want the full flavor of two very richly penned books. Hey Jeff + Kate...where's the 3rd book that's hinted at?? These are old books that I've enjoyed on more than one re-read. It'd be nice to continue. The book can stand alone as a single book read but as I've said, you'll enjoy both books far more if read in sequence. Although there is a satisfactory conclusion/wrap-up, the end hints of a 3rd possible book. Leaving us wanting more as Joel talks about in the beginning of this book...? Very detailed characters, humor worked well with me but I enjoy ironic humor.
This Book is a wonderful book, for all of those who ever wondered at the Maiden of Lucks past, her history and the humor. The whole series of the Lost Gods is a wonderful one full of Adventure to unknown realms and to the rediscovery of Lost, and even Dead gods.
