    Drizzt joins Bruenor on his quest for the fabled dwarven kingdom of Gauntlgrym: ruins said to be rich with ancient treasure and arcane lore. But before they even get close, another drow and dwarf pair stumbles across it first: Jarlaxle and Athrogate. In their search for treasure and magic, Jarlaxle and Athrogate inadvertently set into motion a catastrophe that could spell disaster for the unsuspecting people of the city of Neverwinter - a catastrophe big enough to lure even Jarlaxle into risking his own coin and skin to stop it.

    If you could sum up Gauntlgrym in three words, what would they be?

    Action Packed,decadent


    What other book might you compare Gauntlgrym to and why?

    I have never read another title that fits into the realm of high fantasy.


    Have you listened to any of Victor Bevine’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First time listener of Mr Bevine.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I tried my best. I listened for hours on end.


    Any additional comments?

    Gauntlgrym is one of the best bits of fantasy Ive ever read. I was really not aware of Salvatores work until a friend recommended it. From what I understand Salvatore has a rich history with fantasy literature. Im just sorry I never knew of his work before now. Gauntlgrym has great character development,action packed fights, and he paints some of the most decadent worlds Ive ever imagined. If you are a fan of high fantasy you owe it to yourself to give this book a chance. IMHO you won't regret taking the leap.
