Set during the Era of Upheaval, The Sundering is a multi-author event chronicling the adventures of Faerűn’s heroes, from those just Chosen to some of the Realms most enduring characters. Troy Denning’s novel, The Sentinel, is the penultimate entry in the series. As such, it is suitably thrilling from beginning to end.

Like many during the Era of Upheaval, Kleef Kenric has spent his life worshipping a long-forgotten god. It is said that so long as one person carries a god in their heart, that god is not dead. Helm, The Watcher, god of guardians, could not save his father. While others accept bribes and trade favours for knighthood, Kleef stubbornly clings to the tenets of his faith – coming to the defense of those who ask, leaving his career with the city guard stalled at the rank of Topsword. Kleef’s unswerving faith has turned him bitter.

While battling to win free of Marsember, Kleef accepts payment from a merchant in order to clear the way. He uses the gold to motivate the guards beneath his command to do the job they are already sworn to do. His guilt over the act is not easily rationalised but with priests holding up the evacuation with their theatrics and Shadovar threatening the city, he has little choice but to rally his men the only way he can.

While tracking the Shadovar, he comes to the aid of a mysterious pair, Joelle Emmeline and her short and odiferous companion, Malik. Kleef fights back wave after wave of Shadovar and Joelle and Malik flee across a bridge toward the noble house of Seasilver. They are observed from the balcony by Lady Arietta Seasilver, a young noblewoman who believes she is the Chosen of Siamorphe. Taking up her bow, Arietta joins the fight. Thus fate combines four destinies of four people trying to serve their gods.

The Sentinel is a fun fantasy tale that sets a band of heroes on an adventure to save the world. A watchmen, a noble, a thief, and a murderer must deliver the eye of an orc god to rescue Toril from Shar’s destruction. Along the way, they fight Shadovar, orcs, ghouls and zombies, crossing oceans, forests and even the Underchasm itself. The characters keep things interesting with their shifting motivations. However, saving the world comes at a high price, and author Troy Denning keeps the reader guessing at who will pay the cost.

“There are no truths more dangerous than terrible truths,” Malik said. “Those are the kind no one wishes to see.”

Featured on the cover is one of the main characters. Kleef is a topsword in the Marsember Watch. He’s a Chosen of the god Helm. Yet his life has not been very special. The ranks of the city guard are rife with corruption. Kleef’s sense of duty and fairness has caused him to be overlooked for promotions. He has little to show for his devotion to Helm. A good fighter with a big sword, Kleef is a character who has much to discover about himself. His flaws, his god’s gifts, and the mysterious magic sword that he wields are all things he must explore.

Sadly not pictured on the cover is Arietta. This story is as much her’s as it is Kleef’s. She is a noble’s daughter and a follower of Siamorphe. Like Kleef, she goes through a journey of self-discovery. Her stout beliefs of courage, duty and leadership bring her into a quest to save the world. Unlike Kleef, though, she must make tougher sacrifices and work twice as hard to survive the adventure. Her god may grant the gift of leadership, but when it comes to combat, she must rely on herself to persevere.

“Are you truly that devoted, Malik?” Joelle finally asked.

This book more than met my expectations. I didn't know anything about this author or character until I got the book. Worth reading...

I could not put this one down; have really enjoyed this multi-author series. This title in particular kept my attention and left me wanting more. Definitely keeps me involved and waiting for the next book.

This edition to the Sundering series, picks up very quickly right out of the gate. The momentum keeps flowing right into the book's conclusion.

Personally I'd like to see how the story continues from this point. I'll be looking for a sequel from Troy Denning.

Originally published on Tales to Tide You Over

Another exceptional book in The Sundering series, The Sentinel begins with a simple guardsman with a chip on his shoulder trying to do the best for his city and help the evacuation before it is overrun by the Shade. He stands out not because of anything magical or god related at first but simply because he is not corrupt in a city, and organization, founded on bribery. In that first moment, he’s torn between two objectives and the only way out is to bend enough to accept a bribe, not for himself but to use on his men. It’s desperate times and they most definitely call for desperate measures with the evacuation stalled by doomsday priests and Kleef having seen what he’s pretty sure is the first Shade operative in the city.

That’s just a taste of this book, which reads as a nonstop race impeded on all sides much like the best of the action film genre. If you’ve been reading my reviews, though, you’d know that’s not really the quality I look for in books: the non-stop action. However, check my first paragraph again and you’ll see what had me snagged.

First character, first event, and already he’s faced with a moral dilemma between principles which have gotten him in nothing but trouble his whole life, and his duty to the city and its people, the foundation of those same principles.

Despite the action, or in some ways because of it, this is a character story.

And what a cast of characters it is.
