The Assassin: Surrounded by dark elves, Artemis Entreri tightens his grip on the streets of Calimport. While he urges caution, his black-skinned sponsor grows ever more ambitious. The assassin will soon find himself on a path his most hated enemy has walked before him - a path that leads to a place where someone like Entreri would never be welcome.
The Drow: Jarlaxle has ascended from dark Menzoberranzan with only evil intentions. The malevolent Crystal Shard’s influence on him intensifies until even the drow agents he brought with him grow fearful. When Bregan D’aerthe itself begins to turn on him, Jarlaxle will be forced to find a savior in the man he’s come to enslave.

well paced. great narration. entertaining characters. Salvatore writes action sequences as good as anyone, always has. and this book is full of them
For those of us who have kept up with series you know that Jarlaxle with the help of Artemis Entreri stole the crystal shard from the companions of the hall when they were on their way to destroy it. Now we find out what happened to the shard.
Here we are in book one with Jarlaxle on streets of Calle Port without anyone knowing it. Artemis Entreri is still recovering from his time in the Underdark amongst the Drow all the while trying to keep Jarlaxle inline. As you progress through the story you see why this ended up with a very old worm being called in to solve this issue. I enjoyed a story without the companions of the hall and bring back in old friends.
As always the best battle scenes that RA is so competent with. It was great hearing them. Goid story, terrific performance m

The fight scene with Hephaestus
When dark influences come to the surface, an assassin fights for what he believes.
Great story and execution. Can't wait to read the next one!
I just kept realizing that I hadn't paid attention for the last few seconds, minutes, whatever. I figured It would get better after the initial set up but it never did. The story was just dull, the characters flat and the narrator monotonous. I got tired of continually rewinding and gave up.
