the War of the Spider Queen finishes up. Basically everybody in the group dies except three females. One who becomes the new Lolth, one who returns as high priestess to Menzoberranzan and the final one who becomes the Lady Penitent, a slave to Lolth. Lots of fighting and magical battles and such.

Apparently I didn’t write a review when I read this back in ’10.  Certainly not going to write one now, almost 4 years later. But I have to have text to add the title. So there you have it.

the group tries to find a wizard of another god to help them. He does, but betrays them and allows his god to enter and try to kill Lolth.

No real desire to read the rest of the series. I certainly won’t be buying them. The drow are jut horrible. Backstabbing, no trust, no hope. No race could have gone on like that for real. It would have imploded or torn itself apart.

a group of drow go to another city to see if they too are plagued by Lolth’s absence. They are and lesser houses are plotting to overthrow greater houses. Dwarven merc’s are hired. The slaves revolt. The whole city is pretty much ruined. The group from the first city gets out at the end on their way to meet a priest who will hopefully help them find out why their god is absent. Sucks to be a drow, that is for sure.

I’ll read the 3rd book that I have, but that will be it. Not worth spending any more money on unless it is for a dollar or something.

a forgotten realms novel. This series is about the drow, dark elves. The ones living beneath the earth. They worship some spider goddess, who is apparently doing something of her own and leaving them to fend for themselves. Chronicles what is happening as the ruling caste loses their power. The drow appear to be the worst kind of creature I could imagine. Elves, but with no love, no honor, nothing good. Pure ambition, even to the hurt of their own houses. I only have the first 3 books and the libraries don’t have the rest, so I don’t know if I’ll be finishing this series or not.
