Review Of The Godborn by Paul S Kemp

The Godborn (The Sundering #2)by Paul S. Kemp 1*
BLURB: In the 2nd book of the multi-author Sundering series launched by New York Times best-selling author R.A. Salvatore, the shadow legacy of Erevis Cale lives on even as his old foe Mephistopheles seeks to stamp it out at any cost. Cale’s son Vasen—unmoored in time by the god Mask—has thus far been shielded from the archdevil’s dark schemes, alone among the servants of the Lord of Light who have raised him since birth.
Living in a remote abbey nestled among the Thunder Peaks of Sembia, Vasen is haunted by dreams of his father, trapped in the frozen hell of Cania. He knows the day will come when he must assume his role in the divine drama unfolding across Faerûn. But Vasen knows not what that role should be . . . or whether he is ready to take it on. He only knows what his father tells him in dreams—that he must not fail.
Enter Drasek Riven, a former compatriot of Erevis Cale, now near divine and haunted by dreams of his own—he too knows the time to act is near. Shar, the great goddess of darkness, looks to cast her shadow on the world forever. Riven has glimpsed the cycle of night she hopes to complete, and he knows she must be stopped.
At the crossroads of divine intrigue and mortal destiny, unlikely heroes unite to thwart the powers of shadow and hell, and the sundering of worlds is set on its course.

My Review:Complimentary Review Copy Provided by Publisher Through NetGalley . When I got the first two books of The Sundering from Netgalley, I assumed they were closely linked but found out I was mistaken. Apart from both being set in the same world they had nothing in common at all. This one was so different that I just couldn't get into it in the same way and in fact had to work hard at finishing it at all. I was constantly trying to figure things out and getting very lost. this might interest someone who knows more about the world in which it is set (The Forgotten Realms from Wizards Of The Coast for those who want to know) or who like stuff written by Paul S Kemp but it wasn't for me.
