The book was hidden well.
Its pages promised the power of the Witch-King himself.
And now that it’s been found, even the fact that it kills anyone foolish enough to crack its cover won’t stop people from fighting over it.
Welcome to the Bloodstone Lands!
Human assassin Artemis Entreri and his dark elf companion Jarlaxle have come to the demon-haunted wastelands of the frozen north at the request of their dragon patron. It doesn’t take long for them to find themselves caught in the middle of a struggle between powerful forces that would like nothing more than to see them both dead...or worse.
But Entreri and Jarlaxle aren’t just any wandering sellswords, and the ancient evils and bitter blood-feuds of the wild Bloodstone Lands may have finally met their match.

Audible allows me to take a vacation not just to exotic places but to exotic galaxy's and realms. for that I am thankful. this is app #1.
Never a dull moment exciting from go to done. I like the reflection of real life, sometimes there is no clear cut good or bad guy this book absolutely speaks to the duality of Man & Women. Is someone Good just because of who they work for? is it bad to break a law if it needs to be done? it was once against the law to run if you were a Slave.
This is a great story and once again Victor nails it home. I have not come across the bad Salvatori book, but I must've met I only like it when Victor narrates them, so I will tour has deviated a few times by letting other people narrate and that is his biggest flaw.
two lovable characters a new setting, it funny it's suspenseful and entertaining.
it just that after listening to victors melodic voice I find myself falling asleep on the mornings
A Friend Integrated the book into a 3.5e D&D homebrew campaign back in the day. Very enjoyable to listen to the events play out compared to what happened in the homebrew campaign and the similarities as well. I'll never forget Kosef Turnskull & Latrell Lamar visiting the Bloody Boots and Muddy Blades in aggravation at the lack of success in the hunt.
The newer books are so much better than this one. I like Entreri and Jarlaxle
Athrogate and the dragon sisters, but the other characters seemed shallow.
I went back to this story after starting to read the Companion series again. If you're waiting for the old Dritzz, he's back from the bog of eternal depression, along with a few others you may have thought long gone. So glad I took a chance again! And there are many more books in the series! Glad to have you back Bob Salvatore! I would love to see Dritzz in a mentor position to his own child discovered and sought out, raised up from Menzobaranzan.
Another soul to watch reach for and discover the light. A Zaknafein who is not broken, who found help before he broke.
The story starts out with Artemis Entreri and Jarlaxle teamed up to take down a Lich King all the while dragons are watching. Since the fall of the shard Jarlaxle has made it his mission to get to the bottom of Artemis Entreri as he could hold the shard at bay along with Cadderly and Jarlaxle himself.
As the story progresses the dragons pulling the strings controlling Artemis and Jarlaxle’s lives send them to investigate another Lich King which could or could not exist. While investigating this new threat we learn more about Jarlaxle than we’ve previously done. We also see how he’s not your standard killer drow, but much more.
