Review: I’ve been picking up every book in The Sundering series as soon as it’s been available to me and have really enjoyed it as a reintroduction to Forgotten Realms. The characters that have been introduced (or built on) are ones that I’m excited to follow as they make their own way in Faerun.
That said, this one didn’t really hit me in the same way. I’m not sure if I was just expecting too much with this being the final book in the event series or it just really didn’t resonate, but I didn’t connect to this one or its characters. It was great to finally get a glimpse into what was going on in Cormyr, but the story just didn’t feel as ‘epic’ as many of the others. But when I think about it in the aggregate, I still have very much enjoyed The Sundering overall.
