The first time I tried to read this I had a hard time getting into it. But I gave it a second chance, and I was very glad I did. It starts off slow, but the story gets much better as it goes along. I actually picked up the second book to this series, and I intend to finish the series.
Rose W. (Rosie) reviewed Canticle (Forgotten Realms : Cleric Quintet, Bk 1) on
"High in the placid Snowflake Mountains lies a little-known conservatory for bards, priest, clerics and others. Cloistered among his colleagues, a scholar-priest named Cadderly must contain a malevolent, consuming essence that's been uncorked, 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."
Good book! Read it a couple of years ago, and I'm moving, so I don't have room for it anymore. :)
