    For All Fans of the Drow!

    Just as good and exciting to read as the six books of 'The War of the Spider Queen' saga. This trilogy is a delightful and fun read for all fans of the drow. Lisa Smedman gives us more of their hidden history, as the surface elves and drow continue to war amongst themselves. Once again the sava game takes a very interesting and unexpected turn that can lead to either deity winning. The escape of the oozes of Ghaunadaur and their attack on the Promenade is not the only threat the singing magic of Eilistraee's priestesses face. They find lies and deception from their most trusted high priestess. Can the love and power of a sister be enough to conquer the darkness of the Abyss? Q'arlynd utilizes his newly formed school of sorcery to fight the crippling threat of the Faerzress. As in the previous two books, he struggles with his faith and pledge to his patron goddess. Q'arlynd will be forced to make a choice, and through his choice we finally learn which of the Melarn siblings will be the traitor to Eilistraee. As the two goddess fight for control, there is a mirrored struggle within the drow elves and surface elves. Also, within the ranks of the Eilistraee priestess and lay worshippers, there is a division in the Nightshadows too now under the Masked Lady's new guise. The Crescent Blade continues to seek out the neck of a goddess at the hands of the one who can wield the magical sword. Will Q'arlynd finally discover what happened to his sister Hallistra? Through her own madness will she prove that Lolth no longer has any hold on her, as the Lady Penitent declares herself a demigod? The sava game can end in any way, in anyone's favor. Through strategies of intelligent deception, brilliant trickery, and cunningly forcing the eye away from weakness in order to destroy the opponent's most powerful piece, might be enough to guarantee victory, but not to end the game.

    read like Salvatore

    this author has really captured the style and dramatics of the great Salvatore in this trilogy. I could not put the book down once I started to read, it was addictive from the beginning.
