Storm the Gates of Heaven!
Aliisza and Kaanyr Vhok have returned from their attempted invasion of Menzoberranzan and set their sights on Sundabar. But before she can complete a mission in that besieged city, Aliisza finds herself in the one place a demon would never want to go, no matter how sure she is of her wits and cunning: the very heart of Celestia.
But Aliisza soon discovers that being held captive in Celestia is just a distraction for a far deeper and more deadly scheme. One that threatens all of the Forgotten Realms® world. One that, as much as she hates to admit it, the angels of Celestia really should know about. But how is she going to convince the angels that she, a demon, could have more in mind than destruction?
The Empyrean Odyssey features the return of popular characters Alissza and Kaanyr Vhok, from Thomas Reid’s Insurrection, the first book in The New York Times bestselling series R.A. Salvatore’s The War of the Spider Queen. Forgotten Realms fans won’t want to miss the truly Realms-shaking events of this epic tale of two fiends struggling to escape the heart of a deeply troubled Celestia.
About the Author
THOMAS REID's lifelong dream was to be a professional couch flopper, but those plans were dashed when his father announced that he was "no longer on the payroll" after he graduated from the University of Texas with a degree in swing-set construction (also known as a BA in History). Thomas was instead forced into a nomadic lifestyle, gathering berries and catching fish with his bare hands in such places as Indiana, Wisconsin, and Washington State. Today, Thomas pretends to be a freelance author and editor in the Texas Hill Country, living on a quarter-acre cat ranch along with his beautiful (and patient) wife Teresa and their three boys, Aidan, Galen, and Quinton. To his great delight, he has rediscovered the joys of the couch when he's supposed to be working.
