Overview

Following close on the heels of The Mark of Nerath, Don Bassingthwaite picks up the action and takes the characters into the eye of a new kind of Dungeons & Dragons® adventure...

Imprisoned in the void of a ruined universe by vengeful gods, Tharizdun—the Chained God, the Elder Elemental Eye—shares his exile with the Progenitor, a pool of liquid crystal that is all that remains of the Abyss that destroyed his universe.

Enter our heroes Albanon, Shara and Uldane—all three adventurers readers will know from The Mark of Nerath. They thought their quests were over and done with, but danger still burns like the embers of a smoldering fire in the tall grass. The Progenitor was locked safely away, guarded by Albanon’s dead master, but early on our heroes realize it was stolen and released in the presence of the green dragon Vestapalk as he fell at Shara’s sword.
            Now, alerted to the danger of the liquid crystal by a mysterious cleric who claims allegiance to an order that has protected the substance for time immemorial, they must go in search of the dragon’s body, to ensure his demise has not been exaggerated.  What they discover has consequences that could change the world...

I have read many of the Dungeons and Dragons based novels and this new series is my new favorite series. It starts with the prequel novel "The Mark of Nerath" and moves through the Abyssal Plagues books 1,2, and just as of recently 3. All are set in the new 4th edition roleplaying supplements setting of Nentir Vale. A few valiant heroes thrown together by what seems as fate quickly turns into a battle to deliver the world from the chained god's insanity and malice. What the chained god releases is unlike anything this amazing world has ever seen and to defeat it our heroes must come together and fight back against the crimson tide of the voidharrow.
