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.

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.

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.

The tone of this book is cartoony and I don't think it works at all.
