"[R.A. Salvatore] is an illustrator's dream author; he gives just enough description to evoke something; and then he gets back to the action." --Todd Lockwood, Chesley Award-winning artist
Drizzt and his companions send out a call for help. Drow continue to mass in the caverns beneath Mithral Hall, and the dwarves will need to call in every favor they have, from the barbarians of Icewind Dale to the neurotic Harpell wizards.
Matron Mother Baenre of Menzoberranzan will not rest until her blade has tasted Drizzt's blood, but he's far from her only enemy. There are Houses that oppose her in the City of Spiders, some aligned with powerful demons and no less favored of Lolth.
Demons, dark elves, and deep gnomes bubble up from the Underdark while human berserkers rage across the north, and Mithral Hall hangs on for dear life. Drizzt's only hope is that the dark elves spend more time fighting each other than they do trying to kill him.
The Legend of Drizzt continues in this, the ninth volume in the re-numbered series that begins in Homeland. Following directly after Starless Night and moving on to Passage to Dawn, this is the book in which the Underdark bites back!
