Overview

The Lady of Pain.

She rules the city of Sigil from behind a veil of perfect silence. Feared by mortal and gods alike, she flays her worshipers alive and casts her foes into inescapable labyrinths of despair. Only fools dare ask her to speak.

And the Amnesian Hero has come with a question.

When the god Poseidon tells a man with no memory how to recover his past, the unwitting warrior seeks out the Lady of Pain and finds himself banished to the Mazes. With the help of a beautiful - but dead - tiefling sorceress, a horned fiend with a dark disposition, and a deranged wind-priest who claims top be the center of the multiverse, he must discover the secret of the Lady's past - or confront a memory so horrifying it could tear him apart!

The Silence is Broken.

This book does fit into the setting well, but it is only barely making it to 3-star in the context of someone who enormously committed to the setting. The first half of the book addresses the portion of the setting you would expect (Sigil), and the second half half features aimless meandering. Descriptive language in this book is a bit repetitive, and to some extent it seems like a bit of an odd take on the worst of the Iliad translations. Story arc and character did not seem interesting at any point, but it could still be appealing to those that feel planescape is the only book setting of interest. I personally had a lot of trouble finishing it, as I lack the requisite obsession to overlook everything but setting. Many generic D&D books are more entertaining.

This is a fantasy novel set in the Dungeon and Dragons universe. Follow a perspective hero who does not remember his past and a few others who are unfortunate enough to join him through the mazes of pain and psychology.

My first planescape book and I have never played the game. Not much was lost as much as I can see. I found the first third to be humorous. The remainder was very interesting on account of the characters. A hero who can not remember his name. Yet he has a gift for the Lady of Pain. A mission lies ahead for this Barmy heroe. On his way he meets some companions, reluctant and otherwise. An unlikely ally whom he can not trust. A monster, a maze and himself to be defeated. This is a straaange tale.
