Sword of the Gods is the second installment of The Abyssal Plague series but the first set in the Forgotten Realms. I have not read the book in the series, The Temple of Yellow Skulls by Don Bassingthwaite, but it did not not detract from the reading experience. The main character, Demascus, wakes to find himself in a strange place with no memory of who he is nor where he came from. The story unfolds as he slowly finds out more of his past and begins to wonder if he is better off not knowing who or what is really is. The pacing of the book is perfect, I never felt like the book was lagging nor needless filler was applied. Every action had a purpose that drew the characters together and the end tied up the plot lines. Mr. Cordell does characterization well, the characters are multi-faceted and never flat. As the story progressed I wanted to know Demascus's past as much as he did and felt like I had as much skin in the game as the characters. A mark of a good author is when you begin to invest yourself in the characters. This is what makes Mr. Cordell a 5 star author, he makes you care about the characters. A note on the artwork, the first thing that came to mind was Elric of Melnibone wielding Stormbringer.

Good character development. Plot was classic and thus predictable yet a very good read all the same. My only complaint is that the end seemed to be a little...pasted together? I think if the author et al had taken the time to either end the book sooner with very little wrap up leaving that to the readers imagination or had taken another score of pages to flesh out the ending I'd have been happier, but, hell, I still drilled through the book in 5 evenings of reading. 4 solid stars is my vote.
