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.

I have never read another title that fits into the realm of high fantasy.
First time listener of Mr Bevine.
I tried my best. I listened for hours on end.
Gauntlgrym is one of the best bits of fantasy Ive ever read. I was really not aware of Salvatores work until a friend recommended it. From what I understand Salvatore has a rich history with fantasy literature. Im just sorry I never knew of his work before now. Gauntlgrym has great character development,action packed fights, and he paints some of the most decadent worlds Ive ever imagined. If you are a fan of high fantasy you owe it to yourself to give this book a chance. IMHO you won't regret taking the leap.
I like fiction(Rick Riordan),sci-fi(Orson S. Card), and vampires and werewolfs(LK Hamilton) to name a few.
Drizzt's is finally breaking with all the familiar trappings and coming to terms that all the old friends and loved ones he found at his side for aid and direction in life are going or gone and he must fine a new reason to live. Of course RS is handling this beautifully and leaves me with nothing but confident optimism and well as anticipation for what lies down the road for my favorite D&D based recurring hero. This books does a beautiful job of expressing the pain of having to move on from a chapter in your life yet transitioning wonderfully as the changing from 3.5 to 4.0 for Forgotton Realms leaves the world that Drizzt lives in ripe for new adventure.
Yes this book is another r.a. Salvatore classic new characters and taking
Old ones in new directions the story was very creative and different
The story behind gauntalgrym using the a fire elemental god
To forge magical weapons and armor and the rising of the dead
From the ashes of the lava. Also taking drizzt later in his life as an elf.
Talent action brings the characters to life and adding to their depth with his amazing voice
The reaction the older characters have to certain situations makes me laugh
Great book buy it
This is one book you don't want to miss out on.
None, as i haven't heard to many audio books thus far but, i loved this book.
Great narrater, he keeps you wanting to hear more.
Once you have listened to this book you'll want to buy and listen to the next and so on until you have experienced the whole collection.

If you always have a book with you...
I have been a fan of R.A.Salvatore's work since the Crystal Shard hooked me and sent me down this path. Gauntlgrym is another epic beginning. If your new to the Forgotten Realms or an old adventurer like myself, your going to love this book!
True to his style, the action is awesome! and you don't want to put the book down.
The narration was well done and enjoyable to listen to. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
Yes all of them all Drizzt books are great
Drizzt of course because he is the best character ever created
This is one of the best books ever written.
When King Bruenor died, he had reached his goal of finding Gauntlgrym.
This was my first listen of Victor Bevine.
This book had be in tears as it reflected back on Wulgar, Regis and Cattie Brie.
If your not listening to an audible book you are missing out.
once one get's by the names of people, places, and things it's a great book...
the mystery of Drizzt's past
Drizzt was my favorite
I could not say... "Neverwinter's Drizzt after marriage"
other then the names, hard to pronounce and keep track, of just because of the obscurity of the names but the stories inside are wonderful and with the additional of friends and small pinholes glimpse to Drizzt's history is exciting...
Dexterity Magic Ancient
The Thay Chick with the Staff, because she's not your typical Villian. She has a little more dimension.
Well he can read while I'm working :D which I can't do.
For the most part yea.
"The end of a love affair and the beginning"
I've listen to them all, I am grown man whom keeps his emotions to himself but wow! I was walking around the park in floods of tears... This book is not just emotional, this audiobook is a testament to the very best in this media if you know anybody who is thinking about listening to great audio give them this one .... Genius!
"An Immersive Fantasy Novel"
This is my second Drizzt audio book I have listened to. The Neverwinter series is looking like it's going to be great adventure which pits Drizzt, against foes and evil plots, teamed up with old and new companions. Although the fact that Drizzt is well written character, should not put you off, if this is your first Forgotten Realms novel you'll find the narration excellent and full of suspense and action.
The story unravels with Drizzt acting with compassion to his friends quests, rather than his own selfish goals. A true adventurer who is fun to follow and quirky role-model.
The last novel I listened to was the first book of 'Transitions' called The Orc King and I didn't complete the last two books of 'Transitions' before moving to the 'Neverwinter' series. I had no problems with this, as R.A Salvatore wrote the beginning of 'Gauntlgrym' with a recap on the general plots by weaving it into this story. I can genuinely say I felt the larger adventure without being confused.
Although I am a fan of Dungeons and Dragons, and high fantasy. I am sure if you wish to start listening to high fantasy audio books then Drizzt Do'Urdens adventures in the 'Neverwinter' series is a good a place to start than any other.
The land of Faerun is based in the Forgotten Realms, and Neverwinter in the most North Western part of Faerun. But it is only a small part of Faerun, so expect character in the Dungeons & Dragons novels to come together from far away places each with their own agenda. Expect strange beasts, cunning enemies and amazing magical weapons. On a larger scale, you can expect wars between different races, gods that try to control the fate of mortals, and ancient primordial beings awoken from long slumbers.
The great thing about the novels is that you can continue the adventures, make your own adventures, and your own characters if you wish by playing the Dungeons & Dragons game, and that game is continually supported with official events that might be organised in your local area.
For example, this Wednesday I will be joining friends to play in an official adventure based around the fictional city of Neverwinter, with their own characters who will be using the rules from the game of Dungeons & Dragons.
I loved this audio book. It's a great introduction to the characters and leaves you wanting to to know what happens next. Great fantasy novel full of twists and turns nd amazing descriptive fight scenes.
