Crucible: The Trial of Cyric the Mad

And the finale in the five book series that started out as the Avatar Trilogy. Cyric’s been infected by the book he was trying to use to convert everyone over to his worship and Mystra and Kelemvor, the new god of death are trying to stop it. It’s told from an interesting, almost third party narrative perspective, and really wrapped up the loose ends well. By the end everything’s been resolved, more or less, with the pantheon returning to their roles, and the normal friction between them restored. It’s been a while since I read the original trilogy and it was a treat to finish off these last two books.
