    Annihilation, the War of the Spider Queen, Book 5

    This is my favorite book of the War of the Spider Queen saga! Philip Athans is an author that gives all that I could ask for. He writes the drow as vivid, and ruthless, as I've come to expect. The battle still rages on with the spiders that Lolth has given to birth to herself. Of those females left, the ones of uncontrollable hunger, simple self defense, and instinctual survival are all dead now. Only the strongest with the best cunning remain, waiting on the other's next move. Because only one can reign supreme. Gromph begins by setting right to his handicap of being blind. No longer dependant to use his familiar, Kyorli to see. With the aid of the traitorous House Agrach Dyrr, he has chosen one exceptionally weak drow, to take his new eyes from. In order to save Menzoberranzan, he must defeat the lichdrow of House Agrach Dyrr. Through this battle between powerful sorcerers, the Anointed Blade is brought out, and we now learn what he truly is! Quenthal is growing quite mad while aboard the chaos ship. They can not set sail for the Abyss until they are re-supplied. In Sschindylryn, Valas re-supplies the company while Danifae gains her freedom, no longer a battle captive. Now she returns with Valas with revenge in her heart. She takes control of Jaggred whom she sends to kill Ryld Argith, and discovers Hallistra's conversion to the goddess Eilistraee. Hallistra struggles between her love to Ryld and the devotion to Eilistraee. He doubts that she can kill the Queen of Spiders, even with such a sword as the Crescent Blade. Quenthal is quite jealous over loosing Jaggred, has some secrets of her own that she shares with the Menzoberranyrns. Ultimately she is consumed of reaching Lolth in the flesh. Pharaun is reacquainted with an old friend, or fiend, Aliisza, who is not only able to fulfill her commitment to Kaanyr Vhok but is able to teach Pharaun to sail the ship without the help of the captain, Raashub. A bumpy ride from the Lake of Shadows, to the Abyss answers some questions. Lolth has removed the sixty-sixth layer to a dimension of its own. No one thought this possible. And a shock wave is felt through out Faerun. The priestesses now feel and know of Lolth's return!

    this was dispointing

    I have read the series since the begin. The first two i would highly recommend, but those are it. This book drew the line for the series. Origianal characters were destroyed, and lost their origianal characteristics.

    Good Job

    I thought the book was a good edition to the rest of the series. It sucked having some of the main characters killed. I really enjoyed how Ryld and Pharaun interacted with each other, so i was kinda dissapointed in having him killed off but thats how this author decided to let the story run i just hope this last book and author dont ruin it by bringing them back. So all in all i think this book did a good job of continuing where the last author left off.

    That's why Baenre is the 1st house

    By far the best in the war of the spider queen. In all other drow related books the great Archmage Gromph Baenre has been only a minor character, but in this you get to see the great Baenre wizard unleash his power(which in my opinion rivals that of Khelben and Elminster) to save Menzoberranzan.

    Great book

    Annihilation was another great addition to the war of the spider queen saga. Alot is found out in this book, and if they wanted to, they could have even ended the series here, although I'm glad they didn't. Certain battles can be long winded yet I didn't really mind, just absorbed it all as if I was watching a movie. People may disagree with what I think, but I dont care, I liked this book just like I liked all of the ones before it. I would rate it a 4.5 if I could, its not quite a five but still worth getting. Enjoy
