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.

I hate how he says "short-lived".

the book was really great, I was only slightly annoyed with the pronunciation of short-lived.

Google search could fix this story.

voice actor: Good but limited in voices. Volume of the performance is all over the place. Pauses between plot transitions are not existent.

Story: Good at best. Many things could be said here, but I'll stick to one. The author slaps the readers in the face buy not bothering to learn on morning stars. They are a mace, a stick with a ball that has spikes. At no point do you spin them. It would be like spinning a baseball bat. Morning stars also don't have chains attached. What he describes in this story are Flails. Now as a reader, this throws me right out of the book. It's like smelling poop, then tasting it. How can I keep my mind into the action when the author has no clue what he is writing.
Then add the other disapointmens.

No drizzt in this one. But much deeper into other characters. Some of the best storytelling yet.

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
