I like this story. Good enough writing, an interesting enough plot, Jarlaxle and Dinin...
It makes for an interesting tale.
However, you overuse exclamation marks, and you put in too few commas. Just some critique.

I actually think the fact that she has purple eyes quite understandable. It must run in the family, after all. And since it's such a rare trait, it must be a recessive allele, which means that both Zaknafein and Malice would have to carry the recessive allele somehow. So Malice could have passed that on to Dinin, even though he had a different father. Dinin had red eyes because he also got the dominant allele from her-that's how the trait is always masked. The only way to get that trait is to get TWO recessive alleles, one from each parent. So if Ielenia had that recessive allele, her daughter could easily have gotten purple eyes.
Lol, if anybody needs a perfectly logical and scientific explanation, you can post that. ;)
haha other than that, great story! I can't believe I haven't stumbled upon it before, and I love how Jarlaxle isn't like, the kind, wise person some people make him out to be (myself included), he's quite mysterious and slightly insane.
alright, I will continue reading. :)

You must be a drow inside, abbil!
I LOVED this story. You made Dinin a great character and you kept him fitting with his original personality (not to mention Jarlaxle!).
And I loved the plot, each detail of it. Perfect and with an awesome use of your original characters! Besides you used all the right ingredients: action, mystery, adventure, lust...
This work of yours will immediately end in my favourite fics list.
Thank you so much for writing and sharing! :-)

| The Eromancer chapter 20 . 12/15/2006
| Phoenix Skyborne chapter 20 . 12/15/2006
Nicely done ending.
| Phoenix Skyborne chapter 19 . 12/7/2006
VERY good chapter.
| The Eromancer chapter 18 . 12/2/2006
better damn well be continued! Hm, now if I'm reading this all right this all takes place BEFORE Drizzt comes back from the surface because the 1st house makes war with Mithral Hall, right?
DO THEY GET TO MEAT? Drizzt and Takira meatting would be badass! i KNOW its an overused plot device in some ways but with the backstory you've already given it wouldn't be THAT bad! In fact I think many people would seriously enjoy it. I know I would!

I've been reading the story since you first started, and I must say, that I enjoyed the ending :)

and THAT is the downfall of all psions, if they don't have their crytsal they are nothing. This is why warlocks are superior! the magic they uses is ALWYSS with them even in death, it sufaces their souls and need only one with a strong enough will to use properly!
| Phoenix Skyborne chapter 17 . 11/25/2006
Will Dinin come to the rescue?
| Phoenix Skyborne chapter 16 . 11/23/2006
; I love your characterizations.
| The Eromancer chapter 16 . 11/23/2006
wow, stil just as great as ever I see, next chapter will but just as top quality too I expect.
Here's an idea, however, have you ever heard of Warlocks?
I myself LOVE to play this character class during D&D games so I'm quiet familiar with it. And while it DOES have some more obvious drawbacks for a magical character class the potentiial for the some of the multiclassing far outweighs any drawbacks. The eldritch blast alone combined with maxamise and empower spell-like abilties feats and then cross classing with monk, ranger, scout or rogue or better yet the assassin prstigue class makes for a VERY versitile character, powerful too.
However a pure warlock is sill a very powerful characte if used right. the spell-like abilities may be limited in how many different ones can be used but add in the fact they those same abilities aren't restricted AT ALL in how many times one can use them... Also the Eldritch blast is is a ranged TOUCH attack, completely ignororing all Armor and damage reduction. I've taken out pitfiends with one BY MYSLF as a 12th level character.
The spell-resistance was a bitch to get past but the greater spell penitration feats helped a bunch.
Ok, now don't go thinking I'm an excessive nerd here, I'm just giving you some good examples to go by based on my own personal experiance.
Warlocks are some of the most versatile classes around, and really should be considered for this fic. The character alone gets enough Will saves by Lv.15 to fight a Mindflayer on even ground, with the right equipment and spell-like abilities too, of course.
Look it up! you'll like it!
