Helpful Score: 1
The fifth novel in an epic six-part series from the fertile imaginations of R. A. Salvatore and a select group of the newest, most exciting authors in the genre. Join them as they reveal the blackest hearts of Faerun and send them to the deepest of hells.
Another worthy addition to the series. I'm not as impressed with this one as with Lisa Smedman's tale in book 4, but it was nevertheless very enjoyable.
The changes in the group of drow this storyline follows were quite dramatic this time around, and you do get the impression that different authors were involved in making this happen, as they are quite sudden. (Halistra's conversion; Quenthal's going quietly mad; Danifae's power growth.)
The descriptions of the magic in battles is very impressive, especially as I recognize the spells from my own playing of D&D.
And the events in the final chapter make me desperate to read the final book!
