Cadderly and Danica have faced down the chaos curse, but the dark schemes of Castle Trinity have only begun to reveal themselves. Still questioning his faith, still wondering about his place in the world, let alone the Edificant Library, Cadderly follows his destiny out into a forest of elves, and straight into the fires of war.
The wizard Dorigen has big plans for Castle Trinity, and bigger plans for herself. She's never been content to serve, and the time for her to seize control is at hand. All she has to do is what her more powerful masters failed to accomplish: defeat Cadderly, Danica, and all the elves of Shilmista.
Cultures clash when the peaceful but sheltered clerics of the Edificant Library are forced to come to grips with their own role in the impending doom that has fallen on the reclusive elves of Shilmista Forest. Even in the Forgotten Realms world, the enemy of my enemy is my friend, but how many elves will have to die before the clerics believe they share a common foe?
The second installment in the five-book Cleric Quintet, In Sylvan Shadows is packed with all the action and Realmslore that's made R.A. Salvatore the Realms' best-selling author. The story begins in Canticle and continues on to Book III: Night Masks, but characters and situations from the Cleric Quintet also appear in Salvatore's wildly popular Drizzt novels, including the must-read smash The Ghost King.
