Following the first 2 books of the Sundering I was eager to pick up the third. The beginning was hard but I kept on going waiting for the book to pick up.
It didn't.
Basically if you are into the internal rambling of insecure teenaged girls who get excited when kissed, blush when someone looks at them and nuclear when snubbed you're in for the read of you life. If not try to hang on for the chronological milestones of the Sundering and try not to overly grind your teeth at the lethargy of the plot.

I find this book to be incredibly dull with a slow moving plot and unlikable characters. I have to force myself to continue reading rather than being sucked in. There really is no "hook" to keep me turning the pages. The tieflings act like little more than selfish spoiled teenagers, too stubborn and stupid to take 10 seconds to think about a situation before going off in a rage and screwing everything up. This book feels out of place with the first 2 Sundering books, and if this is how the next 2 books are going to be, then count me out.

Let me start by saying I have not read much of this author. I typically stick to Ed Greenwood, R.A. Salvatore, Richard Byer, Patricia Briggs, Paul Kemp, and Curtis Jobling. I mention the authors because it is important to understand my background before I start my review. I didn't care for this book. I found it to be dialogue heavy without much substance. The two main characters were annoying and constantly complaining about their situation. They come off as frustrated teenagers trying to save the world. Don't get me wrong I usually go for that type of thing, I am a huge fan of Percy Jackson but the constant inner monologue and this needless self sacrificing attitude bothered me to no end. The books saving grace were the side characters that were infinitely more interesting and the occasional funny dialogue written for everyone's favorite devil. Again not my favorite book and enough to turn me away from this author in the future.

I didn't much care for this book. No action at all, the climax of the story was lacklustre, and the characters were not relatable. The side characters do have some flair, but the entire book was full of the same main characters internal musing on the same things over and over. The characters mindsets seemed forced and contrived.

Frankly, the characters came across as whiney. Literally every character spends every chapter wallowing in self pity.

This book is pretty dull. I had to force myself to read through it and finish. It's almost as bad a Mark of Nerath. I've read three of The Sundering Books, and this is the worst, so far. I am not sure how it's averaging above two star rating.

The end it particularly disappointing. The author failed to describe what should have been a climatic ending. The book is so full of boring conversations, self-indulgent personal soliloquies, and other banal discussions, and they carried all the way to the end. All of a sudden, The Adversary ends after over four hundred pages of characters whining and feeling sorry for themselves. All of the deals and broken deals and devilish machinations are a fail. There is noting compelling about Lorcan, Sairche and their masters as they make their myriad deals. The author just could not make the devilish schemes into an interesting story.

There is no action in this book. It's a fantasy novel in the Forgotten Realms, but the reader experiences no sword play or spellcraft. I kept hoping for a dramatic magical battle between Rhand and Farideh, or Rhand and Sairche, ir Rhand and SOMEONE! But it never happened. These characters are all talk and little action. And that talk, again, is replete with self doubt, incessant self insecurities and sophomoric inner conversations. Pretty boring after four hundred pages.

The silly love affair between Brin And the tiefling Havilar is so adolescent and distracting. And gross. It took too much time to explore and added nothing to the book's story. A waste of time and insufferable to read.

I want to add something positive about The Adversary, but there is nothing I like about it. I just want to read all of the Sundering books, and reading this turned into a major challenge. I don't think this adds anything to the Sundering storyline. So, other readers can skip this book if they like.

Warning spoilers...

So I went into this the third book of "The Sundering" series hoping that it would live up to the stellar start provided Salvatore's "The Companions". The second book had bored me to tears despite a promising plot. This book however, drags the reader through a ridiculous and infantile story of Twi-hard proportions.

It's about twin girls, one of whom is in love with a "prince" and the other who is with the ultimate bad boy a demon-human halfbreed. The twin with her prince get separated early on for 7 years and when they reunite the reader is treated to the most god awful "will they-won't they get together again" crap... Until of course, they do and then it is revealed... That the prince got engaged while she was missing. What crap.

The other twin is beholden to this demonic halfbreed via a magical contract and all but swoons and falls into his arms under his continual abuse. She is supposedly an intelligent young woman, that's what the people around say she is and yet nope there no evidence ever of any brain power.

As for the plot, dull covers it accurately. What is more, the author seems to know that it isn't all that good and tries unsuccessfully to add small twists and turns, but in reality just ends up tangling and confusing things needlessly.

About the only positive thing I can say about this book is that it does eventually end. If I could have given this no stars, I would've. Avoid this dreck unless you're a twelve year girl.
