In the third book of the number-four New York Times best-selling Neverwinter saga, Drizzt draws his swords once more to aid his friends. His lover, Dahlia Sin’felle, can speak of nothing but the moment she will face the Netherese lord Herzgo Alegni once again. Drizzt has already followed a trail of vengeance beside Dahlia. Can he justify one more battle to settle a grudge he does not understand?
Artemis Entreri too seeks vengeance. He offers to aid Dahlia in her mission to destroy Alegni. But Charon’s Claw, Alegni’s sentient sword, dominates Entreri’s movements - if not his mind. And then there’s the way Entreri looks at Dahlia. Can Drizzt trust his old foe?

If you always have a book with you...
Wow...R.A. Salvatore does it again! All of his books are so consistently great! And, it is so awesome to have Entreri back in the game adventuring with our favorite hero Drizzt. A real blast from the past and such a fun character. If you have read the other two, read this one! I truly enjoyed this book and look forward to the next one in the series.
Nothing it was a great book in a great series or books.
none it stands miles above the rest
His great storey telling that keeps you wanting more
This is my third Salvatore book. Overall, I have enjoyed his writing but I had trouble with this one. I felt there were multiple plot holes and flawed logic that regularly distracted from the flow of the story. Despite this, it was not so severe that it will prevent me from reading or listening to more of his books.
Here we see the return of Artemis Entreri with the defeat of Netherese lord Herzgo Alegni on the bridge bearing his name. We also see Drizzt not understanding life once more not understanding life or the life around her. In order to kill Artemis they have to go back to Gauntlgrym. We follow their journey as they make their way to Gauntlgrym. We see many forces coming to bear in this story and we see how to great forces don’t want to fight. The question is why didn’t the Dwarf’s come back to Gauntlgrym? Why is Drizzt still clueless in many ways?
I really do not like where this serie has gone in the Neverwinter saga. I've always loved the world and the characters, but it feels like the one worst affected by the spell plague was Salvatore himself. I actually decided to skip The Last Threshold and go straight to The Sundering stories.
Audible allows me to take a vacation not just to exotic places but to exotic galaxy's and realms. for that I am thankful. this is app #1.
Surprised who ended up where. The strong appeared very weak but a twist here and one there, and all is acceptable until the next part.
Look, I understand that Dahlia has some kind of PTSD and is emotionally messed up, but her constant verbal abuse of Drizzt pisses me off. This is an abusive relationship if I've ever seen one. I hope Drizzt gets far away from her and back into a loving relationship with someone who deserves him. Kinda hoping she dies. Really she's already dead inside.
I'm getting really tired of Salvatore beating the reader over and over with Drizzt's feelings. He repeats himself and says the same thing multiple ways like the concept he's conveying is complex, its not, we get it, move on. This book was full of his feelings of jealousy and conflict. I found myself repeatedly yelling in my car to get on with it. The overall story was good though and I'll keep on going with the series. Maybe I'll read them though so i can skip over the introspection.
Dark Shadows fanatic
Not Salvatore's best work but a decent read. To me, it seems he is spending way too much time developing back story for more books. He needs to focus on the one he's writing rather than the ones he is planning.
