Feena is a werewolf and priestess of Selune, who returns to the temple in yhuann where a Sharran cult is emerging. A local wizards' son is recruited to the Sharran cult, and is instrumental in their plans to recover an ancient artifact as well as in the ongoing conflict between Shar and Selune.
There are parts in the story where it drags a bit. There are also parts where it's exciting and intriguing. With a tad bit more polish, this probably could have been among the best FR books ever. Despite a 3 star rating, I would still recommend it, because it is unique enough that others may enjoy it.
This book delivers a lot of details on Selune's and Shar's clergy rituals, rites and hierarchy. I expected much more of that in other "Priests" books, but only "Maiden of Pain" delivered, to some extent. The characters, and especially Keph (one of two main characters), are fairly interesting. I only wished for more insight into Feena's (the other main character) past. The plot is solid but nothing of breathtaking or truly memorable. The pace of the book is at a slower side, just the way I like novels to be, so the authors could delve into detail a bit deeper. The authors describe the setting beautifully, giving you a rich picture of Yhauun and its major landmarks. The writing styles, and especially dialogues, are fluid and rich.
I have no major complains about this novel. To put is in short, it is a combination of good characters and even better writing style standing on a solid plot. Make sure to read it.
As for the "Priests" series as a whole, I was very pleasantly surprised before I read "Lady of Poison". That book is so badly written that I can't believe it even got published. "Queen of Depths" is an average FR novel, classic Byers I would say. This book and "Maiden of Pain" are in my opinion true jewels of the series. The series got an average of 3.25 stars from me, which is above average. If only not for that "Lady of Poison"...
The author does a very good job of moving this story along with the right mix of action, details and setting descriptions. Also, some of the things the author adds are rather unconventional and therefore makes the book very interesting. He tends to go against the grain in a couple of areas, and for that I applaud the author.
This is not the type of book that you see rehashed and rehashed over and over again, this is something new and interesting. Give it a shot if you are a fan of the Forgotten Realms.
I may not reread it. But I throughly enjoyed reading it. And it was well worth the money.
