Publisher's Summary

Goddesses vie for the soul of people...

Halisstra Melarn, convert to the cause of the goddess Eilistraee, was sent to the deepest depths of the Outer Planes to kill the demon goddess she once worshiped, but instead was transformed into a hideous creature bent to the vengeful will of her former mistress.

For the Queen of the Demonweb Pits not only survived her Silence but evolved into something greater than she was before - something that no longer needs to share the domain she calls her own.

Could it be that the War of the Spider Queen has just begun?

    Story
    "Great continuation of War of the Spider Queen"
    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dara Rosenberg?

    Rosalyn Landor would have been a better choice for the narration. She read all six books of The War of the Spider Queen and her voice would have added consistency to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    While I don't think Dara Rosenberg is the worst narrator that I have every heard, she is clearly out of her depth with the subject matter (this also applies to the Darkwalker on Moonshae Trilogy). Rosalyn Landor, who voiced The War of the Spider Queen, would have given the book just what it needed... the right voice and consistency.

    This should be re-read by Rosalyn in much the same way as R.A. Salvatore's books are all being (re)read by Victor Bevine.

    "Worst Performance I've EVER heard!"
    Would you try another book from Lisa Smedman and/or Dara Rosenberg?

    I would and will never try another book performed by Dara Rosenberg.


    What didn’t you like about Dara Rosenberg’s performance?

    I completely agree with the "Good Story, Bad Performance" review. She clearly does not like what she is reading and does not understand the story. I have been listening to audiobooks for years and have hundreds. This is the first I've ever found so poorly read that I can't stand to finish. Lisa Smedman must have been horrified when she heard this. The tone and inflection of her speech is the same as that of a pre-school teacher reading mother goose to three year old children. It is in this voice she describes murder and mayhem taking place in a level of hell. It must be no secret that the performance stinks if there is a specific template question like this in the review form.

    "Good story..Bad delivery"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The premise of the story is great, the way its read is not..I'd ask the narrator of the War of the spider queen Series to continue on doing this story and it would improve immensely.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    the story itself was good


    What didn’t you like about Dara Rosenberg’s performance?

    The narrator obviously doesn't understand the subject matter. Its like the narrator was reading it to a group of kids at a sunday readying at a library. The tempo is off, pauses in the wrong places, and feels like someone wants to brighten up this dreary drow stuff and make it abit more upbeat.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no..if this reading was a movie..it would be directed by uwe boll featuring linsey lohan
