The fifth title in the New York Times–bestselling saga of civil war and chaos in the darkest part of the Forgotten Realms setting Quenthel Baenre and her band of dark elves embark on a journey into the endless Abyss, hoping to find answers to Lolth’s silence—or Lolth herself—in its depths. They have already survived the terrors of Ched Nasad, Myth Drannor, and the Underdark, but even these dangers pale in comparison to what awaits them in the chaotic infinity of the Demonweb Pits.
