The spider goddess Lolth burns for revenge, and she yearns for conquest. The Justicar and his fairie companion Escalla humiliated her, and destroyed her body on Oerth. Now is the time for revenge: to bring all of Oerth to heel, and destroy Escalla and the Justicar. So now, the Justicar and his companions must avoid the deadly opponents that Lolth has placed on their trail, and thwart her plans to destroy their entire world.
I must admit that I had trouble taking this book seriously at first: a ruthless ranger in love with a thong-wearing fairie? However, Paul Kidd succeeds in weaving a story that is wildly exciting and mildly funny. When I picked it up, I did not realize that this book was part of a series, the cover does not tell you that it is. Fortunately, though, this book functions quite well as a stand-alone story. So, the bottom line is that I loved this book, and highly recommend it to you.

Well I like fantasy but this has surely got to be the worst I have had the misfortune to purchase the story starts well enough then descends into a rather confusing story I only read two chapters but that was enough

This book definately lived up to the expectations of the previous two novels.
Ok so yes the party isn't a believable by role-playing standards, but come on you can't possibly be rolling D20's in your head whilst reading a book.
Escalla has to be one of the funniest and most well written character I have read about in a long time, almost on a par with dear old Tas himself.
If you want to read a good series then look no further!!

i read alot of dragonlance/forgotton realms books as a kid, but they started to look a bit stale as i grew up and read propper books. this resrtored my faith in TSR
aaaannnnnyway. this was a very satisfieing read, it has everything you want from an rp based book peppered with geekish humor and compelling sub plots. if you know enuff to look up the author then its worth a read

The heroes of this book an assembly of characters that is completely unbelievable for any role-playing fan.
Apparently these characters have killed a goddess recently and resurrected, she wants her revenge. Offcause these characters foil her wicked plan for world conquest, a not to big accomplishment, since all the foes in this book are devoid of reason and the tiniest scrap of intelligence.
The fighting scenes are described with accuracy and detail and this is what makes the book worth reading, as well as the lively descriptions of the environment. The romantic storyline between the different characters (of different species) are at best comical and not believable in the slightest. The author should write about what he does best: role-playing. Quite frankly, a person who buys a fantasy book from a role-playing setting is not overly interested in the shape of a fairy butt.
