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.

R A Salvatore picked a good setting and is building a foundation for a good series. there are good and bad parts but over all a good book
the book is action packed and watching some of them find what they have been looking for while some find the worst they can even think of
He is amazing. any books done by someone else fall short. i returned books done by mark over and over
Another great (predictably so) story by RA Salvatore.
nope, leave it as a book
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!
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.
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.
