Gauntlgrym: Legend of Drizzt: Neverwinter Saga, Book 1

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "A good continuation of the storyline"

    For awhile now the Drizzt story line has been oh, so there. Not to include that fact that the Transition series was read by the a poor narrator. The last few stories haven’t been that good and felt more like they were just written to make money or put something out to appease the fans. Here we have a story that is good and it seems a little rushed and maybe should have been two books. The story moved at a slow pace, then a ultra fast pace skipping parts of the story which might have been quite better. In the end I enjoyed the story with much being told and we see once more the fall of good characters. Yet, we know it won’t last because no author today seems to have the courage to kill loved characters and leave them dead!

    "First rate"

    I have shied away from RA Salvatore in the past as I am not a big fan of Tolkien and figured this would be more of the same. This was my first Drizzt book and I was pleasantly surprised. It took a little bit in the beginning to get the characters and mythology down but before I knew it I was fully immersed in the storyline. The characters were interesting and there were multiple story arcs which tied together nicely. I will definitely seek out more books by this author. One final note, the narrator was absolutely fantastic... One of the best among the 100+ audio books on audible I have listened to. All in all, one of my few 5* ratings up there with Game of Thrones and Way of Kings.

    "Good book, great performance."

    I have always enjoyed Salvatore's books and this book was no different. The story line isn't overly complex but it is still highly enjoyable. The voice acting was superb and added to the overall delivery in my opinion.

    Story
    "Positively love the Drizzt Series."

    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.

    "Sometimes it's just not "your kind of book"..."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    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.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    "My first delve."

    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.
