291484Second time reading Silverfall, because it has been so long since I read it before I had forgotten all about it.

 Silverfall is a collection of short stories of the Seven Sisters, daughters of the goddess and her Chosen instruments on the mortal plane.  Six of the sisters can claim full blood kinship, while the seventh is either a half sister or a sister in heart only.  Couldn’t quite suss that out, though I think she’s a half sister. Either way, blood or heart is enough to bind these women together.

 A deep and twisting plot is afoot in the Realms, and one by one the sisters are called upon to solve the mystery of the mix of drow, Sharrans, and the Mad Mage of the Underdark.  Beginning with Dove, weakest of the seven in the Art, each sister investigates a part of the mystery before reporting to the sister and asking them to take the reins.

 Or at least so it seems. We go from warrior Dove to priestess Quile to Lady Mage Larael, The Silver Lady Alustriel, the Witch of Shadowdale Sylune, the Witch Queen Alassra, them at last to Storm the Bard of Shadowdale.  Middling sister in terms of her strength in the Arts, leader of the Harpers and the one sister to confront the Mad Mage in his Undermountain stronghold to end the vast conspiracy once and for all.

 Although I’m not entirely sure exactly what that plot was….

Ah well.  Moving on and moving up!  The Last Threshold, book 4 in the Neverwinter Saga is next!

Determined to stand for what’s right in the Realms once again, Drizzt forges a new road north—toward Icewind Dale. Will his new companions follow? Can he fight the darkness alone?
