The following is taken
from a description by WotC:
'Menzoberranzan the Mighty
City of grandeur and cruelty, home of deadly swordsmen and diabolical
necromancers, the brightest jewel of the vast subterranean world
called the Underdark, and proudest achievement of the sinister race
known as the drow, Menzoberranzan is a place with a mystery at its
heart, a secret flaw that threatens to destroy it.
When the power that sustains the city is cut off at its source,
enemies flood in from the darkness all around. And what greater
enemy could a drow imagine than another drow?
The first novel in an epic six-part series from the fertile imaginations
of both R.A. Salvatore and a select group of the newest, most exciting
authors in the genre. Join them as they peel back the surface of
the richest fantasy world ever created to show the dark heart beneath.'
'Prowling the dangerous slums of Menzoberranzan, the cunning wizard
Mizzrym must solve a baffling puzzle or die trying. Aiding him is
his one true friend, weapons master Ryld Argith, who soon realises
that the greatest powers in the city will stop at nothing to twart
them. Meanwhile, high priestess Quenthel Baenre battles demonic
assailants dispatched by an unknown foe, and ambassador Faeryl Zauvirr
learns that the matron mother herself has inexplicably turned against
her, a calamity that can lead only to her demise.
While the whole world is changing around them, these four champions
struggle against different enemies. Yet their paths will lead them
all to the most terrifying discovery in the long history of the
drow and set them on the quest to save not only Menzoberranzan,
but the entire dark elf race from Dissolution.
The War of the Spider Queen begins here.'
