While reading this great book I was reminded of the epic story lines in the Forgotten Realms PC game (Baldur's Gate). Not in that the plots are anything alike, but both depict such a vivid atmosphere and attention grabbing events. If you are a fantasy fan then beware! This is a book you will not want to put down.

For those of you who are fans of the Drizzt saga, this is a nice change of pace. This is the story of Cadderly, a cleric who makes a rather minor appearance in the Paths of Darkness quintet. Actually, it was that quintet that inspired me to purchase this book. I found the change of pace rather refreshing. I was introduced to a completely new aspect of the Realms without compromising action or adventure.

The start was kind of difficult for me, but it always starting a new series with all new characters. The development of characters and the detail of combat are my favorite aspects of Salvatore's writing and there is no shortage of it here. Watching Cadderly go from a bumbling, curious and experimenting priest to his close-to-all-powerfull self was entertaining. But I found my self enjoying the side characters more than Cadderly, specifically Danica and Pikel (the dwarf of few words). And there were some aspects of the story that could have been explained better or gone into more detail but still good enough to get a 4 out of 5 from me. As a sidenote, this series should be read before reading Passage to Dawn since the characters of these novels pop up in there and will spoil the end of this series.

If you're a Salvatore fan I would definitely reccommend the cleric quintet. I started with his Drizzt novels like many people I'm sure, but I would have to say some of his books are definitely better than others. I probably enjoyed the Servant of the Shard series the most out of all of his books (with the drizzt legacy books a close second). But this series was very satisfying. Some reviews said it took a little while to get started, but for me that wasn't really a problem. Some of the characters might have been a little dry compared to his other books, but for the most part, I found the story to be very enjoyable.

Having been introduced to caderly and danica (and the dwarves) through his shard novels, it was interesting going back and reading the beginning of their story. Again; for me, Salvatore's later books dealing with Cadderly, Jarlaxle and Entreri seemed more mature and better-written. But I pretty much got what I had expected with the quintet; a good read with interesting characters.
