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.
