Summary

The Assassin: Surrounded by dark elves, Artemis Entreri tightens his grip on the streets of Calimport. While he urges caution, his black-skinned sponsor grows ever more ambitious. The assassin will soon find himself on a path his most hated enemy has walked before him - a path that leads to a place where someone like Entreri would never be welcome.

The Drow: Jarlaxle has ascended from dark Menzoberranzan with only evil intentions. The malevolent Crystal Shard’s influence on him intensifies until even the drow agents he brought with him grow fearful. When Bregan D’aerthe itself begins to turn on him, Jarlaxle will be forced to find a savior in the man he’s come to enslave.

The Shard is back!

For those of us who have kept up with series you know that Jarlaxle with the help of Artemis Entreri stole the crystal shard from the companions of the hall when they were on their way to destroy it. Now we find out what happened to the shard.

Here we are in book one with Jarlaxle on streets of Calle Port without anyone knowing it. Artemis Entreri is still recovering from his time in the Underdark amongst the Drow all the while trying to keep Jarlaxle inline. As you progress through the story you see why this ended up with a very old worm being called in to solve this issue. I enjoyed a story without the companions of the hall and bring back in old friends.

Love these books, the narrator not so much

I’ve read these books before. I really like them and all of R A Salvatore’s books. The narrator is terrible thou. He has never been on a road trip, or a rode in a semi and listened to his book. He whispers one sentence and then he is YELLING BECAUSE THE NEXT CHARACTER HAS A LOUD VOICE. Terrible. I have to turn it up due to the whisper then turn back down cause of the yelling. Now I’m stuck if I want to stop or get the next book. Ugh.
