The Main plot of The Restless Shore begins with the main protagonist's sister is kidnapped by a group called The Choir. Ghaelya then begins the search for her sister to rescue her. Later she is introduced to Uthalion and his partner Vaasurri by a half-elf, Brindani, who knows Uthalion in a previous and continued subplot. Other subplots involve Uthalion's past, the mystery surrounding The Choir, and a few others. There are mentions of the Aboleths. I have not read the first book in the Abolethic Sovereignty trilogy and am not sure if those sections detailing the Aboleths were from that book, so I was not familiar with them and had to look them up.
The delivery of TRS is much better than Mr. Davis' previous novels. I was captivated more by this one and was more interested to see how things played out. However, after 3/4 of the way through, I started losing interest. Everything was becoming repetitive. Travel to city ruins, get into trouble, defeat the monsters, and repeat. By the end there just didn't seem to be much closure with some of the subplots. It was as if a couple subplots were chosen to keep the conflict of certain characters just for the sake of development which there was little of that.
The characters were interesting, some more than others. I wish thee was more written about the killoren Vaasurri.Read more ›
The central plot of the book is a small group journeying to Tohrepur, a city in the Splellplague changed Akanul, in search of a kidnapped girl, all the while being pursued by the relentless Choir. Two of the characters suffer from past experiences in this region that still torment them. This keeps the reader plowing through to find out what happened to them and how they will end up. There are nightmareish creatures, deadly battles, and characters that you are not sure can be trusted. All of this combined with a nightmare landscape that seems bent on destroying them.
One of the best things about this book was the pervasive feeling of dread the characters experienced. They are hounded by horrible creatures, their past, and the very landscape itself can prove fatal. It adds a certain gravity to the story that made it hard to put down.
Hats off to Mr. Davis for another excellent addition to the Forgotten Realms. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good nightmare.
