Publisher's Summary

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.

Jarlaxle, Artemis and friends on an adventure.

Great chance to see Artemis and Jarlaxle together, great dynamic between the two. Great cast of friends and foes.

they changed the narrator!!!

I absolutely love these books, I have read the whole Drizzit series and decided to listen to them to get a new perspective on these books. That being said, changing the narrator 16 books in is booty!! And it's only this book! the next one Victor Bevine is narrating! I dont really like Male narrators but I find I absolutely love Victor Bevine. I'm just gonna tough this one out but just know that I am not happy about it.

Great story and another perfect reading

Victor brings every character to life. You do not listen to him read. You live each moment each character does. Fantastic story and tremendous reading.

A D&D game with your favourite characters

This book plays out much like a game of D&D, banding unlikely allies and two of the series's best characters together into a party and departing on a quest. In doing so it gives an inspiring look at how players at the table might integrate seemingly incompatible characters into a party. Thoroughly enjoyable and filled with tropes that any fan of D&D will enjoy

Excellent

Excellent book overall, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Not Salvatore's best though sadly, but still a very pleasing continuation of the characters Artemis Entreri and Jarlaxle Baenre
