Wow! What a ride. Lisa Smedman takes this series and injected a jolt of intensity that it really needed. She has a way of writing that feels very immediate and exciting. The subject (our group of drow splits up, follows paths all over the place, and gets even deeper into trouble) is nothing really special, but Smedman presents it in a way that really made me feel for the characters and kept the pages turning. I especially loved the way she worked the minutiae of Dungeons and Dragons lore into the story. I've been a D&D fan for a long time now, and we never worry about most of that little stuff in the games we play, but Smedman worked things like spell component collection, the use of those components in spell casting, and in just the descriptions of the various items the characters use into the story. But in a way that flowed naturally, rather than becoming a grocery list of completeness. I was very very impressed with this book. And I'll be looking out for more Smedman in the future. I think she's an author to watch!

The "babies" that have escaped from Lolth's egg sack are attacking one another, until there is only one. The strongest one will survive, from the thousands. Hallistra is questioning her faith to Lolth, since their recent trip to the Demonweb Pits in the Abyss. She is charged by Quenthal to return to Menzoberranzan, and report what answers they have for now. Hallistra finds her calling to the goddess Eilistraee. Soon the goddess charges her to retrieve the lost Crescent Blade. The weapons master Ryld, joins her, as their love and relationship becomes one like those from the World Above. But, he runs into a boy, who is a werewolf, and this complicates matters with the priestesses of Eilistraee. In the meantime, the remaining adventurers will return to the Demonweb Pits for more answers to Lolth's silence, but with a better guide this time. They learn of a demon ship of chaos that they can sail to the Abyss. Unfortunately for one, the ship must be feed a soul in order to make the journey. Valas finds himself in "deep water", as the team travel to the city of Zanhoriloch to recover the ship of chaos. The city of Menzoberranzan is pinned between the tanarukk and duergar armies. To Menzoberranzan's advantage, Gromph makes his escape/reappearance, but at a price.

If you want to know the current big roleplays, here they are. | 1: WAR AND PEACE (Not a roleplay of the book, no. Just a highschool): "war and peace" RES 1 | 2: ATHENIAN CONSTITUTION (Again, just a highschool.): "athenian constitution" RES 1 | Sorry, there wasn't much, but if you want to contribute, leave the roleplay name and what you need to search. Thank you, and goodbye.
