Publisher's Summary

A classic adventure from the creator of Drizzt!

High in the Snowflake Mountains sits the Edificant Library, a place of scholarly study for priests, bards, and others. Now from the hidden vaults beneath the library a devastating curse is unleashed, and a young cleric must battle the terrifying creatures set loose by a malevolent, consuming essence that's been released, before his own brethren turn against him. Cadderly must put his studies to the test and enter the catacombs far below to save his brothers and himself.

    "Great Start to A High Fantasy Series"

    Great start to a high fantasy series by R.A. Salvatore. The audio performance is superbly done by Victor Bevine. It is a slow start at building the environment and the characters, with everything built up to the actions in last few chapters. The story flows nicely, and writing is beautiful. I hung in there for the first few chapters; once I got hold on the characters, it becomes a page-turner, with a YA romance budding (yes!). I look forward to the next book!

    "An evil curse has been unleashed and no one knows!"

    Canticle: Forgotten Realms The Cleric Quintet Book 1

    An evil curse has been unleashed upon the inhabitants of the Library which is a center of both learning and protection for the land. As the library degrades into state where almost everyone is following their most base desires with the dedication of a sociopath, a priest and a druid seem to be the only ones who haven't lost their minds. As the deaths mount, the library is being searched to find the source of the evil curse.

    Unfortunately, the designer of the curse is adept at raising undead help to defend the curse. With the help of the undead and a demon conjured from the infernal plane of existence, the priest's work is deadly dangerous at best.

    As the priest begins his search he finds that if he can distract people from their base desires, that he can get some help from them. With the aid of a druid, two dwarves, and martial arts master, he begins his quest to stop the evil.

    I enjoyed this book.

    Best Regards, Anthony

    "Salvatore has a knack for D&D driven stories"

    Basically writing review to say that Skyrim character creators must be wasted on people like Rosslyn (see review below)

    "A fun, if average, story."

    Exactly what one would expect from the author of the ice wind dale trilogy. Fairly well told Dnd adventure through the lens of a handful of characters.

    "Great, but a bit slow."

    The way the narrator reads, the story seems to drag by. Otherwise, a great listen.

    "Ok book"

    This book was a little work to keep up with, there were a few stories going on and the switching back and forth between them early in the book lost me a few times.

    This book would make a great movie however I didn't find it as captivating as I had hoped for. It took over half the book before I started to get pulled into it and then it was more curiosity then any real interest.

    I felt it was entertaining but not enough to make me want to purchase anymore books in the series.
