Raithe, the God Killer, may have started the rebellion by killing a Fhrey, but longstanding enmities dividing the Rhune make it all but impossible to unite against the common foe. And even if the clans can join forces, how will they defeat an enemy whose magical prowess renders them indistinguishable from gods? The answer lies across the sea in a faraway land populated by a reclusive and dour race who feel nothing but disdain for both Fhrey and mankind.

Took a little while to get into the story but once I did, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Much more action packed storylines than the first book in the series and the depth of the characters as it all progresses is worth the perseverance. Nice to see some strong female characters that are believable.

I have enjoyed all of the Drizzt books so far and have enjoyed this one more so than the last trilogy with the resurrection of some old familiar characters, but can someone please teach victor how to pronounce parent?😁

I liked this book the most out of this series but was glad to be on to the next collection that had victor bevine narrating. Found the narration hard to follow with strange flow of sentences and different pronunciations of names and places confusing and the American accent was just too strong for me.
