Synopsis: The fifth title in the New York Times–bestselling saga of civil war and chaos in the darkest part of the Forgotten Realms setting
Quenthel Baenre and her band of dark elves embark on a journey into the endless Abyss, hoping to find answers to Lolth’s silence—or Lolth herself—in its depths. They have already survived the terrors of Ched Nasad, Myth Drannor, and the Underdark, but even these dangers pale in comparison to what awaits them in the chaotic infinity of the Demonweb Pits. What they discover there is more shocking than they could have ever imagined, leading them far beyond the Abyss and to a different plane altogether.

Annihilation expands the civil upheaval among the drow, one of the most popular races in the Forgotten Realms setting. It also features a prologue from R.A. Salvatore, the bestselling author who brought drow society to the forefront of the Forgotten Realms setting.
