The War of the Spider Queen book series was overseen by R. A. Salvatore, and each book was written by a different writer from Wizards of the Coast. The cover art for all six books were painted by Gerald Brom.

The story is set in the Lolth-worshiping drow society in the year 1372 DR. On the first page of the first book of the series, Lolth wrapped herself in a cocoon, abandoning her mortal worshipers in the Realms. All of her priestesses, including the highest-ranking matron mothers, lost their divine magical abilities, which in turn caused a series of events that would shake the very foundations of drow society.

The War of the Spider Queen follows a group of six drow, including some recently powerless priestesses, as they leave Menzoberranzan on their trip to find out the truth about Lolth's disappearance.
