THE ASSASSIN: A cold and emotionless killer for whom every soul has a price, even his own, embarks on a path to find out just how high that price can be.

THE MERCENARY: A dark elf of limitless guile dares to challenge a king and carve for himself a place in the inhospitable World Above.

ILNEZHARATA and TAZMIKELLA: Ancient dragons of great power, accustomed to easily manipulating the humans around them. But not all humans are so easily led. When they pushed Entreri and Jarlaxle into the heart of the Bloodstone Lands, not even they could have imagined the strength of the human assassin's resolve, or the limitless expanse of the mercenary's ambition.

    " I cried when I finished this series... there were just so many feels! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 12/18/2013

    " This book wraps up the tale of a character who had had a bit part in Salvatore's first Forgotten Realms novel back in the 80's. The story itself is standard fantasy fare with the dark twist of the "protagonists" being probably two of the most hated mortals in the Realms. So if you have already invested yourself into the subculture of Drizzt, read this book and get your closure on Artemis. If you have somehow avoided that trap, I am envious of you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Colin | 12/7/2013

    " This book is ok not as good as the other ones though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Savedbygrace | 10/14/2013

    " The story picks up from where the second book stopped. Since most of the characters have already been established, the writing pulls you in promptly. Some of the character traits are just so God like that it left me curling my lip and shaking my head at the ridiculousness of it all. One hero monk in particular is just so over the top that, I could in no way connect with him and I never enjoyed reading the sections that followed his story. That said, Salvatore did a better job of portraying the balance of the other characters, even the dragons had vulnerable areas. The tension build was steady and engrossing but leaves you questioning the purpose of many things. Toward the end of the book, the protagonists enter a whole new story arc that has little to do with the beginning. It settles some nagging curiosity's about the origins of Artemis and opens the way for more questions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kevin Xu | 9/8/2013

    " The only reason I gave this book three stars is because it was writing by R.A. Salvatore with two great matching characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara Graves | 8/9/2013

    " My FAVORITE Salvatore book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin Anthony | 7/3/2013

    " Seriously loved this series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany | 4/30/2013

    " Again, I found this harder to read, I think simply because of the character portrayal from previous books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theron Williams | 3/27/2013

    " With this insight to one of the most hated villians in the Forgotten Realms, R.A. Salvatore shows us that what makes a killer can be as tragic as the killer himself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cecil Mathis | 3/14/2013

    " Great book; some very unexpected stuff but still leaves you wondering about a few things that occurred between book 1 and 2. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Takim Williams | 12/2/2012

    " This book is just as action-packed as all of Salvatore's stuff, but the climax is very character-driven as the cold-hearted assassin confronts his troubled past and reawakens buried childhood memories in order to find some peace. Great finish to the series. Really gives closure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frank Roberts | 10/28/2012

    " The ending left me flat, though I enjoyed most of what came before. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Germancho | 4/28/2012

    " 200 pages too long, overly preachy and overall unnecessary "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Todd | 1/4/2012

    " Artemis Entreri is the only saving grace for this whole series. This book is quite readable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 12/16/2011

    " This wasn't as good as the previous book. It needed more adventure and less moral conflict. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victor | 12/9/2011

    " I like this books "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Connor Kinnaird | 8/14/2011

    " The fascinating character of Jarlarxe is characterized in a much more humane way. Also, the conclusion to the life of a antagonistic character that has plagued Drizzt though many of the novels, Entrei, is well done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 4/19/2011

    " It's a bit boring at the start, especially since I haven't watched the previous two books, but it picks up at the middle and the final parts, where we learn of Artemis past is the BEST, MOST INTENSE part of this book that really makes you forget the boring beginning "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick Chen | 3/24/2011

    " I can describe this book in one word, or more like, the series of these books: Epic. "

    " Overall I wasn't particularly impressed with this book. But I did like the parts towards the end where Artemis attempts to sort out his past. "
