It was hard to finish this book.

It seems that a lot happens, but not really. The romance is lacking, and that kinda throws me off. Also, is like I'm reading two books in order to prepare myself for the real plot. I think i would've chosen not to read these books.

My Review for this series is on the threat from the sea book that combines all three into one book. If you want to read my review add me as a friend and look at my read shelves. In short I love these books!

Unfortunately, treading water …

Author Mel Odom writes great action scenes, but even copious amounts of clever swordplay can’t quite make up for the feeling that the middle act of The Threat From the Sea trilogy feels rather padded and, ultimately, repetitive. The great, opening battle for the city of Baldur’s Gate seems almost a replay of the first book’s battle for Waterdeep (right down to the villain Iakhovas using the whole assault as a beard for his search for a few missing magic items).

Under Fallen Stars (Forgotten Realms: The Threat from the Sea, #2)

I finished this book January 6th, 2018. The second in a trilogy (with a forth anthology book that really belongs between book 2 & 3 makes up this series.
In this novel the sea war continues to escalate up and down the Sword Coast. I liked the fact that Baldur's Gate is a central location of the novel. (I really liked the Baldur's Gate series). Our main villain, Iakhovas is advancing the war to the Sea of Fallen Stars, another

This book has both good and bad sides. The book's events happen in rarely explored areas of the FR universe, the Sea of the Fallen Stars and sea elf community, and this is rather interesting. Side characters are also really good, I especially liked the minstrel, Pacys. His wish for creating a famous song is very understandable. Villains are also good, and Odom has created complicated and detailed culture for the sahuaqin. Laaqueel and her motives are, like those of Pacys, very understandable. I ...more

(I am playing catch up here with my reviews.) Again, I got this in the omnibook format which is an absolute steal for the price. This book gets much more in depth (bad pun I know) with the setting of the series. What pushes this to 3 from 4 stars to me is how much Odom sets the underwater world of the Realms. He doesn't just leave things set at the sea, but takes us deep under it as well. Far beyond the sea-devils any of us may have fought in DnD campaigns, but to great cities still standing. Th ...more

Good second book in the series. Mel Odom understands the work and the medium (Forgotten Realms). Very interesting take on the game and a very interesting setting, on and under the seas.

Give it a read!
