The main plot deals with Cyric attempting to establish his church since taking over the godhoods of Bane, Bhaal and Myrkul former gods of strife, murder and the dead respectively. Cyric has come up with the idea to create a book that once read will convince its readers that Cyric is the one and only true god of Faerun. This book deals with the making of this book, the Cyrinishad, and of how the other gods attempt to stop him from completing it. If you're looking for a book that is not all about heroes winning the day then this is a good story as it centers on a god, self-styled the Prince of Lies, who is slowly and rather amusingly being driven mad by his new existence and powers.
For people who are familiar with the Forgotten Realms and its characters this is the story of how the Cyrinishad was created and of its initial fate.
Could be a stand alone read but not reading the first three books only limits the depth of the story and characters in the Prince of Lies.
Personal opinion of the book: I enjoyed it but I love fantasy and the stories that center around the antagonists. Cyric is one of the better evils out there in the fantasy genre world, sort of like the Satan of the D&D world. Many of the things Cyric does and says in the book I found myself laughing at in a "no you didn't" sort of way. Having expressed my love for antagonists I will go on to say that Mystra (and Adon in his brief appearances in the story) are very much overbearing goody-2-shoes. Other than that this story is excellent in my opinion.
