With the fate of the drow hanging in the balance, a powerful priestess sets out to understand the Spider Queen's silence, in this thrilling sequel to Dissolution
Quenthel Baenre is Menzoberranzan's most powerful priestess of Lolth, second only to the Matron Mother. When the Spider Queen goes silent, Quenthel is called upon to lead a team of dark elves on a mission that could save their city—or doom it forever.
Accompanied by the cunning wizard Pharaun Mizzrym, weapons master Ryld Argith, mercenary Valas Hune, and vicious draegloth Jeggred, the priestess is sent to the trade city of Ched Nasad to determine the scope of Lolth's silence. Is Menzoberranzan alone being punished, or are all the drow? Have all the gods gone quiet, or just Lolth? The answers to these questions will determine the fate of the entire drow race and set the course for the future of the Underdark. If the powerful dark elves falter, the world below is open for insurrection.
