    1. Lisa Smedman’s new book, Sacrifice of the Widow, is the first of three in the new Forgotten Realms (FR) series, The Lady Penitent. This series is a must read for any Forgotten Realms fan. It brings about the Drow transformations that change the world of the Forgotten Realms forever and offers the story behind the Drow Pantheon changes in the Forgotten Realms Role Play Game books.The two Drow goddesses, Loth and Eilistraee, mother and daughter, play a game of sava where the moves they make upon [...]

    2. This book was one of those books that I had difficulty putting down. The author clearly spent just as much time on the protagonists as she did the antagonists. Not only that, but there are a few characters that appear to be playing both sides in the struggle, and the author unfolds the story brilliantly. The ending was absolutely fantastic, as it's perfectly set up for it's sequel.What's more, this book holds answers to questions that you might have with regard to pantheon changes in forgotten r [...]

    3. After ruining the war of the spider queen series, I swore I would never read anything else by Lisa Smedman. However, seeing that this book continued the series I couldn't resist seeing what happened next and it helped that I found it at a used bookstore. Lisa proves in this book that she can write an interesting story after all. Dispite quite a number of glaring errors concerning the drow, she pulled off an intriguing novel.

    4. Hey, now, this was pretty fun. It's a reasonably fast read, not a whole lot of depth, and yet with characters that feel compelling in their own way.Smedmen spent less time with the Dungeons & Dragons minutae here than she did in "Extinction", but pieces of D&D lore are there for those with the background to spot them. (Which is fun)

    5. Do I love my fantasy novels! Good follow-up to the War of the Spider Queen series. I believe there is another series follwoing the War of the Spider Queen, it is hard to follow the timelines with Forgotten Realms, they are changing the setting through several series.

    6. I enjoy stories about the drow. This one is rather interesting, since it highlight. the relationship and mistrust between the males and females. I enjoyed it.

    7. This was pretty good, especially for a Dungeons and Dragons novel! The quality for DnD books varies widely, but this one mostly moved right along and was fun to read. It also showed a game between Lolth and Eilistraee using Mortals and lesser beings as game pieces, which is always pretty cool. I like it when books like this have multiple levels of reality.It also had a prophecy in there, that made the loyalties of two of the characters uncertain. The great thing was, we only got a first person p [...]

    8. Gods plot against one another using their drow followers as pawns. Whether they are the priestesses of the dancing moon goddess Eilistraee, the assassin-clerics of the shadow god Vhaerun, or the wicked followers of the demigod Selvetarm, none lack a plethora of outrageous spells endowed them by their ever-warring deities. Amidst them is the Lady Penitent, the once-drow, now arachnid abomination that serves at the behest of the chaotic spider-goddess, Lolth. The Sacrifice of the Widow is the foll [...]

    9. Lisa Smedman is one of my favorite authors from the War of the Spider Queen saga. The drow continue to be the most and best interesting characters, since my discovery of the Drizzt Do’Urden novels. The Lady Penitent trilogy delivers all the pain, horror, blood & gore, evil, and deception that I’ve come to love and expect from the drow elves. Two rival deities play a dangerous sava game since Lolth’s return from the Silence, in their struggle for dominance over the drow. Along with the [...]

    10. The beauty of drow elvesI would like to say that I enjoyed this book. If you like the drow elves give this one a trybut first start with the war of the spider queen series, else this wont make any sense. I am tired of the whole drizzt story as it seems drizzt is a god like character who dies then comes back. Well this book has drow heroins who face a more gritty situations Also it has great characters, even the villians, who I was getting to really like. Lisa also shows the duality of the drow a [...]

    11. I found this on my shelf. My nephew had sent it to me, added into an order, to get to the free shipping threshold. I thought, "This might be a good palate-cleanser to Kavalier & Klay." It's not good. I don't expect that anyone thinks it would be. I expect this would be unreadable for anyone not familiar with the tropes but it's fun reading descriptions of D&D rules acted out. Characters show up and die usually only lasting for a few pages. I won't be adding the name "Smedman" to my perso [...]

    12. The book was good. It provides the darkness one is looking for when reading about the Drow, but it lacks a little what i am used to from Lisa Smedman. To me it seemed like there was a lot of background and getting to know the characters for the bulk of the novel versus seeing them in action. Granted this is only the first in a series I am hoping the others pick up the pace. When it comes to plot it had a good big picture idea, but the details fell short. Not hearing how Vhearaun was killed was r [...]

    13. Not bad. Continues the War of the Spider Queen series, which was pretty good in its own right. An easy read. Some interesting new characters are introduced and some pretty powerful characters you have heard of in the past take center stage.

    14. 7.5/10Η άμεση συνέχεια της εξαλογία από τον πόλεμο με την βασίλισσα αράχνη. Η Smedman κάνει καλή δουλεία σε αυτή την "αναγκαστική" συνέχεια της ιστορίας, η γραφή της είναι καλή και αναπτύσσει καλά τους χαρακτήρες.Γενικά η τριλογία είναι καλή με κάποιες ωραίες ανατροπές στον κόσμο [...]

    15. This book started out kinda slow, but after the first fifty pages or so it really took off, making it difficult for me to put down the farther I read. Smedman created a wonderfully stressful plot that has an amazing impact on the Forgotten Realms world.

    16. Sacrifice of the Widow is definitely a must read for fans of high fantasy. My lack of knowledge about Forgotten Realms lore didn't stop me from enjoying the book either, which is a good thing since it's hard to get engaged with similar books based on existing lore.

    17. I loved this series, it was so cool to read more about the mysterious Drow and learn more about their gods. The ending was very good, I really enjoyed reading this series.
