Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"To her, to her dying breath, you were the untouchable one, the one whose flesh her dagger could not penetrate."

The Assassin — A cold and emotionless killer for whom every soul has a price, even his own, embarks on a path to find out just how high that price can be.

The Mercenary — A dark elf of limitless guile dares to challenge a king, and carve for himself a place in the inhospitable World Above.

Ilnezharta and Tazmikella are ancient dragons of great power, accustomed to easily manipulating the humans around them. But not all humans are so easily led. When they pushed Entreri and Jarlaxle into the heart of the Bloodstone Lands, not even they could have imagined the strength of the human assassin's resolve, or the limitless expanse of the drow mercenary's ambition.

Review:

"After aiding King Gareth Dragonsbane by heroically defeating the Witch-King in bestseller Salvatore's Promise of the Witch-King (2005), the human assassin Artemis Entreri and his elven partner in vengeance, Jarlaxle Baenre, face challenges from the evil wizard Knellict, Knellict's Citadel of Assassins and the Dragon sisters in this bloody, brooding sequel. Reluctant to return to his homeland of Menzoberranzan and his netherworld armies, Jarlaxle angles to establish his own kingdom with Artemis in the Bloodstone Land. Meanwhile, Artemis struggles with traumatic childhood memories, feelings awakened by the magical powers of Idalia's flute and his love for the half-elf Lady Calihye, who holds him responsible for the death of her beloved fighting companion, Parissis. King Gareth retaliates against Artemis and Jarlaxle, forcing their exile to Artemis's birthplace, the arid city of Memnon, and precipitating a startling denouement." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

The final title in the series from New York Times bestselling author Salvatore continues the escapades of Entreri and Jarlaxle, as they encounter the wrath of an angry paladin king in the dangerous Bloodstone Lands.
