Promise of the Witch-King (Forgotten Realms) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I grant you your soul, but not your life. Be happy that I have found a measure of mercy.

The Witch-King

A lich of unspeakable power that people say has been destroyed, but whose hand still somehow holds the realm in its grip.

The Knight

A champion of good with secrets as dark as any assassin's, she is the unlikeliest ally a dark elf has ever had.

Entreri and Jarlaxle might be strangers in the rugged, unforgiving mountains of the Bloodstone Lands, but they've been in difficult places before. Caught between the ghost of a power-mad lich, and the righteous fury of an oath-bound knight, they've never felt more at home.

Review:

"Jarlaxle Baenre, the drow elf, is once again on the trail to rollicking adventure in bestseller Salvatore's follow-up to Servant of the Shard (2000). At the behest of the dragon sisters Ilnezhara and Tazmikella, Jarlaxle and his assassin companion, Artemis Entreri, travel to far-off Vaasa in search of an unknown artifact belonging to the Witch-King Zhengyi. The intrepid pair infiltrate the Army of Bloodstone at the Vaasan Gate, becoming part of the elite group of seasoned fighters who defend the gate from goblins, ogres, bugbears and other monsters. Salvatore keeps the action hopping as the duo use every trick in their repertoire to achieve their goal — finding magical treasure hidden by the long-dead Witch-King. Lovers of all things elvish, especially those who like butt-kicking swordplay, dastardly intrigues and ingenious hocus-pocus, will relish this fantasy. 15-city author tour. (One-day laydown Oct. 25)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

The long awaited sequel to Servant of the Shard.

The second title in a new series dealing with two popular characters from the Forgotten Realms world. All three of the books in the last trilogy by Salvatore were New York Times best-sellers in hardcover. The last book in the trilogy, The Two Swords, hit #4 on The New York Times best-seller list and remained in the top twenty for five weeks.
