    Summary

    Undrentide has fallen. Rebecca Blumenthal has turned her back on her old life and embraced her new life as a vagabond priestess of Shaundakul and bad-tempered do-gooder. But, as shadows pool in Waterdeep's streets, she finds out that you can never really escape your own past - and that while she may be done with heroism, heroism isn't done with her.

    Last stop in a trilogy: Hordes of the Underdark. Earth meets Faerun. Inspired and influenced by: Stephen R. Donaldson's Mordant's Need series (and Thomas Covenant), plus two of my favorite authors who always inspire me, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Not-entirely-heroic protagonist described as "delightfully acerbic" and "a profane, temperamental gift" by reviewers. Lots of twists, sharp right turns, banter, humor, angst, and slow character development. Also... *points at the character list and winks*

    If you want to skip the first two in the trilogy, you probably can, but you'll be missing a lot of character development and backstory. If you want to get the broad strokes but are short on time, you could also just read Part I (which is a pretty quick read) and chapters 1-5 + 58-59 of Part II. Your call.
