The Goddess Lolth awakens from her slumber seeking her Yor'thae chosen one vessel and preparing to cause havoc. Qunethel and Danifae hear the sirenís call from the malevolent Spider Queen of the Demonweb Pits; they journey towards her with both vying to be her sacred vessel.
At the same time, Halisstra the swordswoman enters the Demonweb Pits, not because of the call of the evil Goddess, but because she plans to assassinate Lolth. As the trio treks closer to their destiny, the dark elven drow wants them dead. Other subservient worshipers come home to Lolthís spidery realm. Confrontation is coming with much of the Forgotten Realms in peril regardless of the outcome.
The sixth and final fantasy in the delightful War of the Spider Queen series is a strong conclusion that will please fans of dark tales with the Queen and the drow taking center stage. Especially enjoying the tale will be the myriad of readers who devour the works of R. A. Salvatore, as this and the predecessors (see Byersí DISSOLUTION, Reidís INSURRECTION, Bakerís CONDEMNATION, Smedmanís EXTINCTION, and Athansí ANNIHILATION) pay homage to the great fantasist. Though better to read the previous novels first but in spite of connectivity gaps, Paul S. Kemp provides a strong finishing touch.
