Read this some years back, and it says something about how forgettable it is that I only now recalled it after someone posted about the author in a Facebook group. While I do enjoy Lolth and the Drow, the party of adventurers was bizarre and just weird. I might have enjoyed it more if I had read any of the 5 books previous to it, but this was a very bad jumping-on point. Plus, most of the characters are annoying enough that I don't think I really want to go through 5 more books of these guys. Es ...more
This is the second novel-length adaptation of a classic D&D module I've read and I wasn't too impressed with it. Q1 was a module for a party in the level range of 10 - 14 and it was an adventure that was epic in scope, leading one on a journey through the Abyss to the lair of Lolth, goddess of the drow.

The characters in Kidd's novel engage in a somewhat similar journey within the context of the Greyhawk setting (which was not, as I recall, especially well fleshed-out at the time the original
Well, this was definitely my least favorite of the "Justicar" series in the module-to-novel books. Although better than the stinky "Keep on the Borderlands", this just didn't keep well enough to the module.

Continuing on from "Descent into the Depths of the Earth" but adding a LOT of what I hated about that book, and really losing the whole train of the GDQ modules, this was 177 pages (out of 310) before our "party" got to the Abyss. What a load of CRAP! And they didn't get there the way you are

Czytałem tę książkę jeszcze jako Mistrz Podziemi, a Mistrzowie Podziemi z ciekawskim okiem przyglądają się tego typu pozycjom.
Znajome realia, znajome potwory, gadające miecze i barwna drużyna, szlachtująca wszystko na swojej drodze, a w między czasie kupa dobrych przygód.
Jest to książka lekka i zaskakująco przyjemna, stanowiąca fajny zbiór inspiracji do sesji D&D.

Great, fun book even if the ending is a bit over the top. I think I liked the characters a lot more than the story. Lolth's portrayal wasn't exactly to my liking, but there's lots of D&D fun to be had here. Definitely not your typical fantasy characters or solutions.
A really fun adventure, this book continues the adventures of the Justicar and his merry band through other planes while they chase after Lolth, all the while being hunted by old acquaintances. A wonderful final chapter to their stories.
A book with action, adventure mystery and a great sense of humour. Every thing you need in a book right here.
This was another excelent Paul Kidd adaptation of an early D&D adventure.
The tone of this book is cartoony and I don't think it works at all.
