Overview

Return to the City of Spiders!

Still reeling from the death of Wulfgar, Drizzt is allowed little time to grieve, for dark elves are massing in the caverns deep under Mithral Hall. To protect his adopted home, he'll have to return to the city of his birth, the evil City of Spiders. Menzoberranzan is one of the most dangerous places in the already perilous Underdark on a good day, but for Drizzt, a renegade with a price on his head, its certain death ever to set foot there again. But Drizzt Do'Urden and his companions have faced certain death before, and will gladly spend their lives for the sake of the dwarves of Mithral Hall.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Starless Night is part of the continuing ``Forgotten Realms'' saga, which includes the author's best seller, The Legacy (Random Audio, 1992). Still shaken by the death of their comrade, Wolfgar, the companions, Regis, Brunor, Catibri, and Drizzt, mourn in their own ways. For Drizzt, however, sorrow turns to vengeance. Drizzt decides that he must return to the Underdark city of Menzoberranzan and see for himself that the drow do not again spread their evil on the surface world. Much like a fly who is caught in a spider's invisible web, Drizzt, too, finds himself entangled in events that he cannot control. Starless Night is good sword-and-sorcery fare and keeps a lively pace throughout. Narrator Simon Jones offers a solid performance that is occasionally marred by hokey sound effects. Those who are Dungeons and Dragons players will appreciate seeing the genre come to life. Recommended for ``gamers'' and listeners interested in fantasy.-- Adam Paul Hunt, ``California Bicyclist,'' San Francisco
