The book delved deeper into Artemis Enteri's past and gave greater insight into the development of his character. However the rest of the storyline seemed weak and rushed. There were very few action scenes, which was suprising considering how Artemis and Jaraxle seem to find a fight in any situation, as in the other novels they were in. Overall I felt that Salvatore didn't put much effort into this one.

After disabling the Zhengyian Construct in the shape of Castle Perilus ruled by a drcoliche and inhabited by gargoyles and other dangerous creatures, the assassin Artemis Entreri is awarded by King Gareth of Bloodstone with the Knight of the Order his companion Jarlaxle is named a Bloodstone hero. The drow dark elf and Artemis are the furthest thing from heroes imaginable as the human does not have a heart and the drow lusts for power and adventure.----------------- After receiving their rewards, Artemis has a run in with the Assassins Guild. He and his companions run for their lives before reclaiming the castle and restoring it using magic. The elf claims the land of Vaasa renaming it D¿Aerthe ruled by King Artemis I. King Gareth and his army march to defeat the usurper because he wants to make Vaasa a barony of his kingdom. The elf knows his side cannot win so he retreats to his homeland while Artemis is exiled with the drow coming to rescue him.---------------------------- Although Jarlaxle is selfish, he finds himself genuinely fond of Artemis, which is why he used magic and an ensorcelled artifact to let him feel again. There is plenty of action, political intrigue, and battles in this spellbinding tale. The Sellswords Chronicles has a special feel to them as the supernatural seem natural whether they be dragons in human form, drows or gargoyles. R. A. Salvatore provides another strong sword and sorcery saga that demonstrates his exceptional world building skills.------------------ Harriet Klausner

An okay read and should be read if you read the first two books but not his best effort.

This, the third book in the trilogy, is not as good as the second was. R.A. Salvatore tries to explain why Entreri is the way he is, by going all the way back to his childhood, and the town he grew up in. Throughout the whole book, Entreri and Jarlaxle find themselves caught between Spysong and the Citadel of Assassins, but never really committing to either. Calihye and Entreri relationship is still ongoing. Entreri is for the first time opening his heart up for another, because of the aid of Idalia's flute. Calihye is caught between actually falling in love with Entreri, and her revenge for her friend Parissus, (lesbian lover?!). With the help of Kimmuriel and House Bregan D'aerthe, Jarlaxle tries to establish a foothold for the drow on the World Above. Jarlaxle claims Entreri as King Artemis the First of the "unclaimed" Castle D'aerthe, formally the replica of Castle Perilous near the half-orc city of Palishchuk. This not only costs them the loyalty of Palishchuk, but forces King Gareth to raise his army against them! Deep down I hoped that Jarlaxle would prevail, but it is King Gareth who is the victor when he captures King Artemis the First. The conversations between both kings results in King Gareth becoming a better king for his kingdom. With no proof, only speculation, Jarlaxle, Entreri, and Athrogate are exiled. I'm still very fond of Athrogate. He's a great character throughout the books!

What a way to end a trilogy with the two most intriguing anti-heroes of all time. Entreri and Jarlaxle are both deep and rare for their kind, but they do seem to have some sort of a moral code that defies logic. With their pairing to Athrogate, the impossibly old, rhyming, alcoholic dwarven warrior, they begin a new adventure when Entreri refuses to be used as a pawn. Causing a war with the Citadel of Assassins. But, Entreri, Jarlaxle, and Athrogate prove formidable as well as interesting as the story forms. I was enthralled, and greatly enjoyed this trilogy.
