Title: Sands of the Soul
Series: Sembia #6, Forgotten Realms
Author: Voronica Whitney-Robinson
Rating: 2.5 of 5 Stars
Thazienne Uskevren, daughter and spoiled brat, is recovering from physical and spiritual injuries. An old foe returns to steal one of her friends’ soul and Tazi is all that is standing between the evil sorcerer and her blind friend.
With an old acquaintance who she doesn’t fully trust, Tazi must venture deep into the desert to confront this evil and somehow stop his evil plan from unfolding.
Either I’m missing a lot from earlier books, or this author tried to create a backstory and failed wholesale. I felt like some very important pieces of info were talked about that we had no access to. It was very disconcerting.
And this was just blah. Tazi doesn’t trust the old acquaintance and yet they fall in love in the end. Mother issues. Oh and lots of self-esteem building talks and such. Lordy, I hate that kind of crap.
Overall, an average Forgotten Realms adventure, in The Desert. The series has lost my interest more at each book but thankfully there is only 1 more book and then I can get back to the Erevis Cale books.
