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 the mercenary Jarlaxle into risking his own coin and skin to stop it.
Unfortunately, the more they uncover about the secret of Gauntlgrym, the more it looks like they can’t stop it on their own. They’ll need help, and from the last people they ever thought to fight alongside again: Drizzt and Bruenor.

The Thay Chick with the Staff, because she's not your typical Villian. She has a little more dimension.

To battle evil you have to embrace it just a little.
The story. page by page, kept you interested to finish the book in one sitting. I love the detail to the story getting it closer realism as science fiction could. I will definitely continue to the next book. Thank you for such an exciting and "down to earth" storyline.
I would compare this book to Eragon as it too had a great story with a realistic feel. Unfortunately, "Eragon" the movie, did not do the book justice. Please make sure if this becomes a movie you continue to keep the realistic feel to the storyline. Than you again for a pleasant imagination.
He brings feeling, centering you into the story. When you read alone you do not have much expression; you read, imagine, and remember. The feeling of the narrator makes it seem like you are actually watching it on a screen. I would love to be able to read alongside the narrator, but that could just be me.
I would say laugh and feel for the characters depicted in this well written and narrated story.
The narrator really gets you involved in the story, making you feel for every character within the storyline.
I really encourage other to try audible books, it is truly a new experience in reading and imagination into a new adventure. I would want to read alongside the narrator because it makes me feel more involved. Regardless, loved the book and audio manager!!
I appreciate the narrators tone change as he read the different characters, really help distinguish whose response belonged to whom.
Have never listented to his other performances prior to this one.
Drew me into the trilogy
Love SciFi, Fantasy and Paranormal fiction. Also love Science, technology, and UFO conspiracy theories :)
I truly enjoyed this audio book. The reading is perfect. I'm officially a fan of Victor Bevine.
i would absolutely recommend this book to a friend. its intense, full of mystery, suspense, action, adventure, and its well written.
well, i am bias. ive read every other book that has Drizzt and Breunor Battlehammer in it, so the thing i liked best about this story was the battles. the end of Breunor was pretty epic as well.
this is the first of Victors performances ive listened to. i liked it.
the ending moved me, but thats because a major player in Salvatores books dies, its hard not to be moved by that.
The narration is excellent but beware this is not the first Drizzt book, half an hour in and I am completely lost due to many references to past events, and already established characters and places.
Had a friend recommend Salvatore and I bought this book without reading the synopsis. Had I, I likely wouldn't have. I'm not a fan of high fantasy with its elves and dwarfs. I actually stopped listening to this book until and didn't pick it up again until I'd exhausted all the audiobooks in my library. Once I finally got into the story (and it took about a few hours of listening) I found it enjoyable. I might actually pick up the next book in the series to see where this all leads.The book ends in such a way that much of the story presented thus far has been tied well enough to end here. I do have a few questions that I'd like answered.
I fell in love with the Drizzt series with the first series of books and enjoyed them tremendously for the first 5-6 books but then it started to become stale, but this was a great start to a fresh batch of Drizzt novels!
