Overview

In the 4th book of the multi-author Sundering series launched by New York Times best-selling author R.A. Salvatore, Richard Lee Byers introduces Anton Marivaldi—a renowned reaver with an insatiable thirst for bounty and a moral compass that always leads him toward the evil he’s never tried.
 
Endless, pounding rain afflict the Sea of Fallen Stars and the coastal regions surrounding it. Harvests are failing, travel and trade are disrupted, and civilized forces are giving way to the deluges caused by the storms. In panic and despair, many have turned to the goddess Umberlee, Queen of the Deeps, offering her sacrifices with hope that they will be spared the inevitable reckoning of her perpetual tempest.
 
Evendur Highcastle, undead pirate captain, risen from the depths to assume the mantle of Umberlee’s Chosen, takes advantage of the people's desperation to strike for both spiritual and temporal power in her name.
 
Vying with Highcastle for the hearts and minds of the people is Stedd Whitehorn, a little boy and the chosen of a god thought lost to time: Lathander, the Morninglord. In a time of such upheaval, Stedd’s message of renewal and hope runs in stark contrast to the savage ethos of Highcastle and his waveservants.
 
When Anton captures the boy in order to collect Highcastle’s considerable bounty, the reaver is quickly caught in the riptide caused by the sundering of worlds.

Like its series predessors, The Reaver by Richard Lee Byers is filled with dark tension, unlikely heroes and battle scenes described in such rich detail, one can almost smell the death in the air. Anton is a cold, hardened Reaver,a rogue, but when The Chosen, young Stedd comes into his life, there is a new side of Anton, that begins to bloom. He seems to gain a heart, a lighter side to his darkness. Stedd’s innocence is endearing, too trusting, too gentle at times, but growing up quickly in the school of hard knocks. With the Red Wizard, Umara, a powerful and arrogant woman, these three stand together as an unlikely force. By utilizing a change of perspective throughout, Richard Lee Byers draws wonderful contrast and gives great depth to the continuing tale of magic, Spell Plagues, gods and goddesses, good vs evil. Wonderful details and world building are presented in heavy doses in the beginning, leaving the imagination primed for the action that is to follow. This may be my favorite addition to the Sundering series so far! I received an ARC edition in exchange for my honest review from Wizards of the Coast.
