Overview

Goddesses vie for the soul of people...

Halisstra Melarn, convert to the cause of the goddess Eilistraee, was sent to the deepest depths of the Outer Planes to kill the demon goddess she once worshiped, but instead was transformed into a hideous creature bent to the vengeful will of her former mistress.

For the Queen of the Demonweb Pits not only survived her Silence but evolved into something greater than she was before - something that no longer needs to share the domain she calls her own.

Could it be that the War of the Spider Queen has just begun?

Lisa Smedman is one of my favorite authors from the 'War of the Spider Queen' saga. The drow continue to be the most and best interesting characters, since my discovery of the Drizzt Do'Urden novels. The Lady Penitent trilogy delivers all the pain, horror, blood & gore, evil, and deception that I've come to love and expect from the drow elves. Two rival deities play a dangerous sava game since Lolth's return from the Silence, in their struggle for dominance over the drow. Along with the differences in the two elven worshippers, there are also similarities, especially in the consideration and treatment of males. Lisa Smedman fills this exciting book with great monsters like driders and with powerful wizards too. One of the siblings of House Melarn is prophesized to betray the priestesses of Eilistraee. However, they don't know whether it will be the Lady Penitent who was once Eilistraee's champion or Q'arlynd whose heart and mind is torn between Eilistraee and the Spider Queen. With Q'arlynd's questionable pledge, and Halisstra's weak character and will, I wonder if the Crescent Blade will reach Lolth's throat.

This book is not for a novice to start with, one has to have genuine interest and a bit of knowledge of this type of Science-Fiction/Fantasy. It began slowly, and was tough to focus on until well into the book. The characters were difficult to get to know, and the book often times had me feeling like I was on the "Outside looking in". I'm hoping for better things from books II & III.

This book was better than expected. Great new charactors and the new wizard Halistras own brother to replace Phaeraun one of my favs in the war of the spider queen which you must read first. Its a great read.
