SCRIBE award winning author Erin M Evans continues the riveting tale of her Sundering character Farideh as she becomes embroiled in a Forgotten Realms flavored game of thrones   In a dir In a follow up to The Adversary from the Sundering line of books Evans follows Farideh and her crew in their further adventures in Cormyr And while this novel has many of the elements I have come to expect from a DD themed book it also includes most of the elements I have come to expect from Evans as well Specifically characteristics of stories within the genre but not the Forgotten Realms line The political intrigue in this book swings for the levels reached by Martin while the moral intrigue keeps up and even passes Salvatore in spotsAdditionally there’s a feel to the characters in her novels that doesn’t ring similar to the other series in this line In consideration my only thought would have to be her recent entry into the Forgotten Realms line by comparison I know it revived my interest in the setting from a fiction standpoint Which in turn renewed my interest in it as a game setting Sit that with Farideh being my favorite use of the warlock archetype a favorite from the last incarnation of the game system and the series will have my attentionIf you are new to the characters enough of the past is set into this novel for it to still be viable as a launching point It is the beginning of a series Kind of a “further adventures of Farideh” sort of thing But don’t let that stop you from going back to read the past novels with these characters Or Godcather another stand alone of hers in the Realms setting All are surprisingly fresh for old school DD folks like me but inline with other novels in the genre to interest people new to Forgotten Realms All of this wrapped up in tightly entertaining proseThis is one that I would purchase and have as well as give to friends I give it45 StarsI’m taking a half star for a slight cliffhanger ;

Fire in the Blood Brimstone Angels #4Ect follow up to the third book in the Sundering series The Adversary young warlock Farideh falls into the midst of a battle for the throne of Cormyr As the war brought on by the Sundering General Discussion Responses and ReviewPrior to reading1 Why this book? What do you know about it? General comments etcThis is the 4th book in the brimstone angel's series by Erin Evans I begin the series with book 3 the Adversary and loved it Obviously there was a lot that I missed by not reading the first two Specifically some of the intricate politics of the hells can be confusing without the background but it's not enough to spoil the story This book should give us a look at the fallout from the events of the adversary and what life will be like for Farideh and Havilar as they attempt to assimilate back into Cormyr after losing 8 years During Reading1 Favorite character who do you relate to the most?I can easily relate to Farideh and Havilar feeling out of place at times like outcasts While literal here it's an interesting comparison to the real world and people who struggle with fitting in When someone seems to care about them the first response is no you don'tMore than anything though I relate to Dahl He's fallen from grace in a way He used to be in the favor of Oghma but he lost that favor and it's been a mark on him since He's constantly searching for answers as to why trying to validate things but it's only when he finally stops and reflects on everything that he realizes his faults His uote that he cared about being right than being true is an important ideal I think at times many others myself included do the same thing We care about being right than about what the truthful right thing to do is Sometimes we have to put egos arrogance etc aside and simply be genuine and honest2 How do the secondary characters contribute?There are a LOT of characters to keep track of here and the line between main character and secondary character is pretty blurred Sometimes they create interesting side relationships as with Dumuzi becoming a house companion and pseudo bodyguard for Farideh Farideh and Raedras budding almost sisterly relationship in Havilar's absence Dahl's ongoing feudrelationship with Vescaras the Sairche Lorcan sibling rivalry taken to a terrifying level These side relationships were complex in and of themselves and helped to develop the main characters as well3 Favorite moments passages uotesTwo moments that stand out to me are Farideh's confrontation with Lorcan and Dahl's aha moment Farideh grows a lot in this book and she finally stands up to Lorcan when she says enough is enough It's the first time that Lorcan doesn't seem to have the upper hand with her He's at a loss for words Words are his weapon so when this happens he's basically unarmedDahl's prayer to Oghma was a really pivotal moment for me He realizes his faults and that he should focus on what is true being honest with himself He simply said and did things in the past because he thought they were the right thing to say or do and in some cases he cared most about being right But this isn't what Oghma teaches After Reading1 Themes?Weight of war apparent throughout the novel It drives many of the characters into developing against their will or forces them to make decisions that they aren't comfortable making In a time of war you sometimes have to decide between what you want to do and what you need to do In many cases this means following your brain over your heart or weighing the lives of few against manyChoices These novels are very good at making us uestion what we would do if we had to choose between the lesser of two evils uite literally since several choices in the book revolve around making a deal with a devil How do you choose between the good of your country and your heart? There are several instances where havilarfaridehdahl make a choice that will hurt a few to save manyAcceptance and Redemption Farideh finally realizes that shes being manipulated a pawn in a bigger game Havilar is able to think with her head instead of her mind and realize that the relationship with Aubrin is not something in her best interest any Maybe most importantly I thought Dahl's story of acceptance and redemption was the most moving his fall from Oghma's preference was due to him wanting to be right rather than seeking the truth By realizing this and forgetting what is right and rather looking for the truth he finds redemption with Oghma2 Describe the characters and how they interacted with the main plot? How did they develop throughout the story? how strongimportant were the relationships between primary and secondary characters?Aubrin Raedra and Havilar were at the mercy of the plot for most of the book Raedra increasingly has the weight of her familial responsibility to Cormyr on her shoulders but needs the support of Aubrin to hold the country together The deaths of her family members the disappearance of Aubrin and the impending seige all move her forward faster than she wants to goAubrin has been put in a situation albeit by his own doing that he wants no part of His responsibilities to Cormyr are also weighing on him In a way his uest is nothing than an escape from what appeared to be the inevitable that he would have to marry Raedra and convince Havilar to be his mistress The plot doesn't seem to have any holes for him to escape from this inevitability and it slowly drives him crazy to the point of really becoming a different character altogether By the end of the story his only way of vindicating himself is to start overHavilar is caught in the middle of the major plots for both Raedra and Aubrin She's along for the ride so to speak The position changes her makes her realize what's important and ultimately helps her to build a tougher skin when it comes to her relationship with Aubrin She also can't stop the powers of Asmodeus from transforming her into a chosen and by the end of the novel seems to embrace itThese three characters created a very complex love triangle Complex because it wasn't necessarily a triangle but as Raedra described it two completely different battles being fought Raedra may have once loved Aubrin but doesn't now; instead she's trying to fulfil a duty and unite a country Her relationship is a responsibility Havilar began a relationship out of love but realizes that it becomes something that will reuire every second of her attention just to keep it afloat and at the expense of CormyrOn the other side of the coin a few characters drive the plot forward through their own developments Farideh's rejection of Lorcan and acceptance of Dahl will have major repercussions Lorcan is slowly losing his grip on Farideh and it will be interesting to see what response will come from the hells because of it Bringing Dahl into her life subjects him to potentially dire conseuencesDahl finally makes good with Oghma It looks like he's on his way to becoming a chosen yet again and returning to the order of Paladins He's become increasingly involved in the main plot and I'd expect him to continue to develop in the next bookLorcan is slowly starting to lose his control over the protagonists While he seems powerful throughout the series it's evident that his power only comes through manipulation which is only possible through his words When his words lose their weight so does his manipulation and power Farideh has begun to see through this and without Sairche's support he'll likely lose hold of Havilar as well He's got the eye of asmodeus on him which is never a good thing so he'll be under immense pressure to succeed from now onTHe secondary characters added some very interesting relationships as wellDumuzi appears to be a set up for an important future storyline He developed a protective bodyguard relationship with Farideh which allowed him to get close enough to the family to hopefully work with MehenSairche would appear to be moving toward becoming a main antagonist in the future While she's been controlled by Lorcan for so long she seems to have partnered with the brimstone angel While a symbiotic relationship they're both evil and out to dismantle asmodeus so we'll have to see where this goes4 What waswere the settingsettings? how did they contribute to the tone mood plot themes etc?A war riddled Cormyr It feels like the pressure of war and seige are around every corner Ever decision has the future of the country involved This constant feeling sets the mood for the entire storyWhile Brin Havilar et al spend most of the story in the Cormyrean countryside I wish we could have seen of this It seemed like they were close to the front lines of war but you didn't really feel like you were experiencing it at all5 What are some of the unresolved issues?Lorcan He's in a very compromised position at the end of the story While it seems he's taken care of Dahl I don't think Farideh is buying it If he can't get her back he'll have to answer to a lot of devilsSairche maybe the most intriguing cliffhanger Sairche has partnered with the brimstone angel in what appears to be a combined plot to bring down
