The Godborn caught me off guard, having just read The Companions I had that image of the Forgotten Realms in my brain and beyond the Drizzt books the Forgotten Realms books I recall off the top of my head included the Baldur's Gate novels and some of the Harper's books, all of which, with one exception, were similar in style and tone, which was a fairly standard one for fantasy novels. The Godborn right off the bat shatters that tone and makes it's reader well aware that it is a dark novel full of a conflict between light and dark or as I would say, "hope vs. despair" and captures each side of it perfect.

Focusing on several characters, one being the son of Erevis Cale, another Gerak a companion of his, Orovis, and two cursed brothers, we get to see how pieces are moved around this world like an epic chess match but as each piece is moved, the board, covered by a "fog of war" (to use an RTS term) is revealed little by little, catching each side off guard. The novel captures the spirit of little guys being part of a massive game between higher powers so well that I tried to figure out what was really going on, ahead of the character I was following in the novel and it drew me deeper and deeper into the novel.

This story has everything from love to loss, hope and despair, joy and sorrow. There are moments that make you smile and moments that make you cry or want to throw the novel at the wall, but you wont, because the story that Paul S. Kemp was woven together is so intriguing that you cant stop and once one arrives to the last 30% of this novel, this escalate so quickly that there is no stopping.

REVIEW OF ADVANCED READERS COPY

Paul S Kemp does it again with his upcoming book GODBORN. GODBORN is the second book in the Sundering Series taking place in the Forgotten Realms universe. The book has been a long time coming. I have to say that the book's delay is one of the reasons that I had given up on Forgotten Realms. I can now forgive them for the wait. It was a great read with Mr. Kemp demonstrating his talent for storytelling.

GODBORN isn't just a by the numbers swords and sorcery novel. It's about people dealing with difficult issues and overcoming challenges. Paul S Kemp manages to draw me into the story and start caring for his characters. I definitely recommend this book. However, if you have never read Paul S Kemps forgotten realms books before, I would recommend you start off with Twilight Falling: The Erevis Cale Trilogy, Book I

Paul S. Kemp once again pulls you deep into this completely bewitching fantasy world in The Godborn.

His mother was transported into the future for his birth. Now Vasen's birth is suppose to play a pivotal role in the battle between light and dark. When he reaches adulthood, Vasen is haunted by visions of his father's imprisonment. For Vasen questing into hell is no easy task, but that is where he must go to find his father. During this quest Vasen risks uniting his light and dark sides while fighting gods and godlings with conflicting views. The race is on to find Erevis Cale, Vasen's father and to fulfill his destiny.

This is an intense, violent, dark fantasy. A few times, I had to remember to breathe during this white knuckle suspense filled plot.

I have to admit the vast reaches of Kemp's imagination scares me :). Perfectly detailed, you are whipped away to this battle between light and dark/good and evil and even the gray areas in between.

I really enjoyed The Companions which brings a lot of the Forgotten Realm characters into the time of The Godborn. Both these books seem to be written during the same time, though The Godborn seems darker and more sinister.

I personally was caught up in the allure of this story. definitely a must read for the fantasy lover and Dungeon and Dragon devotee.

I received this ARC copy of The Godborn from Wizards of the Coast in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication October 1, 2013.

The Godborn is certainly a book full of surprises for Erevis Cale fans. For those new to Paul S. Kemp's famous shadow warrior, you're in for something different. As the title implies, divinity plays a large role in this dark, dramatic adventure. Some characters seek it out, while others try to avoid it. Yet within this book of fantasy, there's an interwoven thread of horror that's sure to play on reader's emotions. It's rather fitting considering one of the antagonists in the novel is a ruler of Hell.

If you are new to the Erevis Cale series, The Godborn serves as the long awaited climax of the Twilight Wars Trilogy. In those books, Erevis Cale, Drasek Riven, and Magadon the half-devil mind mage try to stop a shade named Rivalen from bringing about the end of the world. Rivalen is a Shadovar prince and a worshiper of Shar, the Lady of Loss. Shar is a goddess who seeks to bring sweet oblivion to the universe by destroying one world at a time. Through the Twilight War, Erevis and his colleagues waged a war against shadows, end up with a piece of a god's divinity, and do battle with the ruler of the eighth hell...Magadon's father.

In The Godborn, the story mostly follows Erevis Cale's son, Vasen. Through dreams and guidance from characters like Riven, Vasen must save his father from the eighth hell. Along the way, he makes some friends who become very enjoyable new characters. Long time fans may be disappointed that there isn't much of Erevis or Mags in this book. However, Riven and the Shadovar prince Brennulus play key parts with some very nice scenes. Some gigantic battles take place, along with some highly personal ones. There's a lot to enjoy.

One of the surprising elements, though, is the horror story twisted within the plot.
