"Not just one of my favorite authors . . . not just one of my favorite storytellers . . . one of my favorite people." -- Tracy Hickman, The New York Times best-selling co-author of Dragons of the Hourglass Mage
Tragedy hangs over the forges of Mithral Hall like a black curtain, and Drizzt is hardly immune from its effects. And with drow massing in the deep caverns beneath the hall again, Drizzt leaves the sorrowful dwarves behind in a desperate attempt to prevent all-out war.
Matron Mother Baenre, the cruel mistress of the drow city of Menzoberranzan, couldn't be happier to see the renegade Drizzt return to the City of Spiders. Lolth, the Queen of the Demonweb Pits, still hungers for his blood, and Matron Mother Baenre is only too happy to finish what Drizzt's own mother couldn't.
And more than just a matron mother awaits Drizzt in the city of his unfortunate birth. An old enemy has found his way there, too, one who thirsts for revenge as greedily as any drow. When Drizzt returns to Menzoberranzan, he'll face off against nothing less than the entire city.
Starless Night brings the Legend of Drizzt back into the depths of the Underdark, to the City of Spiders, where it all began. The threats first hinted at in The Legacy explode into nonstop action that continues through Starless Night and into the next chapter of the Legend of Drizzt, Siege of Darkness.
