This is a tough book. It sets the scene for a major change in a really fun area to read about in Faerun. I read this series years ago and I am revisiting it via Audible. Not the best book in the series, but it sets the scene. If you can make it through this book, the ones that follow are really good.
Intriguing Ruthless entertaining
Final climax battle
No but really like her reading giving charters differnt voices and so forth
Really enjoyed the book will get next in series
Is there anything more honestly human than the City of the Spiders? Without laws and ruled by chaos, would we all not be the same as the Dark Elves plotting and scheming ambitiously for advancement?
This first book in a series of six sets up one of the grandest tails ever in the history of the Drow. The characters who assumed the lead roles are endearing and irreplaceable as many have come to be in the stories of RA Salvatore. This first book serves as an introductory into those characters which will draw you into the webs of the Spider Queen herself. A must-read.
Remember read something this month, share it with someone and make the world a better place!
Loved the characters and the setup for the party to go on a grand adventure. If you like the Underdark this book is for you.
EVERYDAY IS A MONDAY
drows other then drizzt and jarlaxle. I find that it still follows the important hierarchy of mensobenzeran but putting the spot light on smaller houses make the story unique.
5 all the way. It has no weakness
The mage. He pokes it up ever ones but, with sly remarks & gets away with it, most of the time.
All the magic fights were good.
Trial of the Spider Queen.

If you have read any of the Salvatore tales involving the Drow, then you already know that they are an unpleasant bunch. Imagine an entire city of female J. R. Ewings and that almost comes close. This matriarchy is well known for being chaotic and just plain nasty. Their current problem resides in the fact that Lolth has shut off her blessings. That leaves the female clerics in a tight spot. It will be fun to watch this unfold.
The narration was fine. Very fitting for a woman to be the voice here. Although I do find it interesting where she decides to apply a Scottish accent.
