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.

This is one of the better books I've read in the series. Or should say listened to. R.A. Salvatore has really hit his stride with writing these stories he never fails to entertain and write characters so very vivid I feel I'm literally looking at them with my own eyes. This book is bittersweet. I won't ruin it. The last couple of books have had some shocking upsets for me personally because I love so many of the characters. Jarlaxle is by far one of my favorite characters now. I'm hoping Dahlia is around for awhile she's a very interesting character and a potential love interest for Drizzt. At least maybe a rebound love. This book has everything a fan can want from the series. Lots of action and humor. Some very powerful enemies and impossible odds. I hope everyone enjoys this as much as I did. Victor does a FANTASTIC job of narrating the story. Starting part 2 of the Neverwinter series now.
I love fantasy and Sci Fi. I love elves and dwarves and all the rest. This book introduces so many characters so quickly, it was hard to keep up. The reading was great but the story didn't catch me and by the time the story took a turn and a vampire was introduced, it was too much. Maybe I'll try it again but two hours in and I've moved on.

Really loved the book great narriatiin cant wait for the other booksnin the series blah blah blah
This one took me a bit to get into. This is my first look into the D&D world. Very good story. It got a bit muddled midway, but overall I enjoyed it. Great ending as well. I'll get the rest in the series for sure.
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!
With so many characters and races, you really have to pay attention to keep track of who is who. I think I might have enjoyed this more in print form. The story was OK, and the narration was OK, but I never became super engaged.
IF YOU HAVENT READ TEH OTHER BOOKS, PLEASE READ THE ORIGINS SERIES FIRST BEFORE WORKING YOUR WAY TO THIS BOOK. THERE IS JUST TOO MUCH HISTORY AND CHARACTER BUILT IN THE PREVIOUS BOOKS AND EXPERIENCES OFTEH PRIMARY CHARACTER THAT WOULD BE LOST TO YOU IF YOU HAVENT READ THEM FIRST.
