“Finding someone to finish a series after five novels from five different authors is no easy task. He’s got to be willing to find all the open roads the others have left for him. He’s got to do his homework, and quickly. And given the quality of his predecessors’ work, he’s got to be good . . . Enter Paul Kemp. Whew! Writers like this don’t come along every day.”

–R.A. Salvatore
The New York Times best-selling author of The Two Swords

THE SPIDER QUEEN LIVES AGAIN

But something is different, something her priestesses can hear in the winds, feel in their spirits, and for a select few see with their own eyes. The Demonweb Pits, removed from the Abyss to take its place among the lower planes, is more dangerous, more horrifying than anyone has ever imagined. Teeming with feral spiders bent on ripping each other to pieces– killing, eating, and killing again–the blasted landscape of Lolth’s personal hell is still forming.

Quenthel Baenre, with the tattered remnants of her expedition continuing to plot against her, crosses that spider-infested killing ground in hopes of answering the call of her reborn goddess. If she can make it to Lolth’s side, can she even imagine what plans the Queen of the Demonweb Pits has had for her all along?

The final novel in an epic six-part series from the fertile imaginations of R.A. Salvatore, and a select group of the newest, most exciting authors in the genre. Join them as they bring an end to a devastating war, and give birth to the greatest horror the Realms has ever known.

Danifae Yauntyrr, former battle-captive of House Melarn, has come too far to stop now. She has regained her freedom after years of servitude, but has yet to exact her revenge. Though she has gained much, grown in both power and ambition, and enjoys the protection of the powerful draegloth Jeggred Baenre, Danifae still needs to kill Halisstra Melarn. But how can she when she’s followed Quenthel and Pharaun into the heart of Lolth’s reformed domain, a hellish world of demonic spiders bent on eating each other, and anything else stupid enough to get in their way–including the chosen vessel of Lolth herself.

While Danifae wonders how she’ll ever take vengeance on a woman she left behind on the surface of Faerûn, the very target of her burning hatred is close on her heals. Halisstra has come to the Demonweb Pits with a very different agenda. In her hands she holds the fabled Crescent Blade, a sword she believes will grant her the power to kill Lolth herself–but only if they find her before she fully completes her own mysterious

    Buyers Beware!

    I've never written a book review before, but after reading this series, I felt like I owed it to fellow Realms fans. The first four books were incredible! I couldn't put them down. Things were crazy, & I was salivating to find out how things would end. About midway through book five, things literally changed. From that point on, the books became predictable & some segments seem to drag on endlessly. I'll use this analogy. Imagine that Lucas added an extra hour to Return of the Jedi, but that entire hour was extra scenes of the battle between Luke, Vader, & the Emperor. You know how it's going to end, so eventually you just fast-forward through that scene. For the first time, in my life, I found myself skimming through large segments of the final book. What was a focal point of the book just seemed pointless, to me. There was even a segment that makes no sense at all. Why was it in there, & what was the point anyway? The end is such a letdown. All I'll say is that the more things change the more they stay exactly the same. Pointless! Add to it that my two favorite characters from the book end up dead, while everyone else lives. Read the first four books & let your imagination fill in the rest. The sixth book is a major disappointment, in my opinion.

    This book does not have your average cheesy ending.

    After reading all six books I understand that some readers got attached to their favorite characters, so readers got up sad when those characters died. This story does not have a cheesy ending. I¿m glad that there is finally a series for readers who like Drow. Please write more books with a Drow as a main, evil characters.

    GOOD CHARACTERS DESTROYED

    I love books 1 through 4. When i read five i was wondering where this is leading up to. Than when i read book seven i realize that the ending was dissapointing. It was like the worthless characters that always needed help , and even sometimes lose their cool were favored. i dont blame it on the authors, because the authors were all great. I just thought that this book needed to improve on character work rather than destroy the characters that were a big part of the story

    Good until the end

    Very good book, i couldn't decide through-out which side or who i wanted to prevail. I disliked the way it ended, it seemed to thrown in at the last minute.

    :(

    Hated six,loved the rest, really, but... a certain character should have easily made it thru to the end, not to ruin it all... wen character 'b' trapped character 'a', and died, character 'a' should have been untrapped right? All character b's other majic failed him wen he died... sorry if i ruin the book for anyone, but honestly ive read worse spoilers just on this page... by a long shot... its not like it wouldve been cheesy if said character had lived or something.... and please read books 1-5 cuz they r amazing, just imagine the rest, as sed in another comment..............................

    I LOVED THIS SERIES. I can't say more than that.

    This series starts off a little strange and you can't really see where they are going with all of this but as you progress, you see that the first book was the set up for a HUGE climax. You need to treat each book as a "Chapter" and when you hit the end, you will either absolutely love it or find it distasteful but completely in line with the mores and values of the Drow.

    I got 3 books in and tried to read R.A. Salvatore's The Ghost King (Transitions Series #3) and it paled in comparison to this series. I had to stop reading it after only one chapter because I couldn't take the sugar and spice.

    Be warned, once you take up The War of the Spider Queen, you may not be able to go back to the morality and sappy innocence of Drizzt's story lines.

    I'm not even going to attempt to pick up Mr. Salvatore's books until I can get the Underdark and the Demon Web Pits out of my mind.

    I LOVED this series!

    Resurrection, the War of the Spider Queen saga, Book 6

    Of the thousands of Lolth's rebirth, only eight remain. The savage fighting has stopped for now, awaiting the Yor'thae, Lolth's Chosen One. But, who will that be, Quenthal, Danifae, or Hallistra? Vhaeraun is continuing his fight against Lolth, by enlisting Inthracis to assasinate the three candidates. He and his army will be waiting for the priestesses, to easily ambush them. In addition to this, the three must also overcome the challenges of Lolth to prove that she is to be the Chosen One. First, the domain of Lolth is a challenge, for most do not survive it. Next is the Teeming. Then, there is the Pass of the Soulreaver, and finally the Plains of Soulfire.
    The condition of Menzoberranzan is improving, with the return of the priestesses spells, the army of duergar, and the spirit of the lichdrow are the only obstacles they face. Time is of the essence if Gromph is to destroy the lichdrow's phylactery before his resurrection. However, Matron Mother Yasraena knows she must help the lichdrow to resurrect, in order for her house to survive. Both are in a race against the other, to discover the location of the lichdrow's phylactery, one to salvage and the other to destroy.
    The ending to the War of the Spider Queen saga, is not what I expected, and that is why I think there is mixed feelings about it, (including me). Personally, I liked it. It's nice to be surprised, and after reading 6 books, it would not have been good to read an easily expected end. I'm really looking forward to the Lady Penitent trilogy, by Lisa Smedman!

    Ressurection

    think this book was fantastic, it was fascinating how these Dark Elves travel to the ends of the abyss together and still have the nerve to turn on each other. I really like the mindset of the dark elves. It entrances me because of the lack of depth they have, and how little it takes for them to stick a dagger in someone¿s back. I also like how they always use each other in love and in danger. I love this book it is amazing and it portrays the feelings of the drow as well as anyone has ever done.

    War of the spider queen Book five

    A hole new culture the dark elves try to stay on top a world where the weak are killed and the killers rewarded. This New York times best seller never stays in one place for long. It twists and turns, never knowing who¿s going to live or die or how they do so, you¿ll never want to put the book down.

    Terrific final fantasy in the delightful War of the Spider Queen

    The Goddess Lolth awakens from her slumber seeking her Yor'thae chosen one vessel and preparing to cause havoc. Qunethel and Danifae hear the siren¿s call from the malevolent Spider Queen of the Demonweb Pits they journey towards her with both vying to be her sacred vessel. --- At the same time, Halisstra the swordswoman enters the Demonweb Pits, not because of the call of the evil Goddess, but because she plans to assassinate Lolth. As the trio treks closer to their destiny, the dark elven drow wants them dead. Other subservient worshipers come home to Lolth¿s spidery realm. Confrontation is coming with much of the Forgotten Realms in peril regardless of the outcome. --- The sixth and final fantasy in the delightful War of the Spider Queen series is a strong conclusion that will please fans of dark tales with the Queen and the drow taking center stage. Especially enjoying the tale will be the myriad of readers who devour the works of R. A. Salvatore, as this and the predecessors (see Byers¿ DISSOLUTION, Reid¿s INSURRECTION, Baker¿s CONDEMNATION, Smedman¿s EXTINCTION, and Athans¿ ANNIHILATION) pay homage to the great fantasist. Though better to read the previous novels first but in spite of connectivity gaps, Paul S. Kemp provides a strong finishing touch. --- Harriet Klausner

    Don't bother

    If you read book 5, then you already know what happens. The Halisstra character arc is completely ridiculous, its repelling and unbelieveable. If Valas is your favorite, keep shopping, he isn't in this one. Phauran's story arc ends predictably. The teaser plot that spanned six books, provides the shallow pool for this agonizing belly flop. Danifae's character arc is so obvious that you can't even be amused by the 'shock' of the others. Quenthel's arc, which promised for two books to evolve, pops with all the pinache of a zit. This is pretty much a lose lose book. Nothing at all surprising and sadly no entertaining thrills or torment along the way. ...Well, unless you count the self torment of turning the next predictable, disappointing, and unimaginative page. Aliisza adds one small, but bright spot of humor in an otherwise boring book. No big laughs, no big surprises, predictable like a mule and just as companionable. Skip this book!
