With the last of his trusted companions having fallen, Drizzt is alone - and free - for the first time in almost a hundred years. Guilt mingles with relief, leaving Drizzt uniquely vulnerable to the persuasions of his newest companion: Dahlia, a darkly alluring elf and the only other member of their party to survive the cataclysm at Mount Hotenow.
But traveling with Dahlia is challenging in more ways than one. As the two companions seek revenge on the one responsible for leveling Neverwinter - and nearly Luskan as well - Drizzt finds his usual moral certainty swept away by her unconventional views. Forced to see the dark deeds that the common man may be driven to by circumstance, Drizzt begins to find himself on the wrong side of the law in an effort to protect those the law has failed. Making new enemies, as his old enemies acquire deadly allies, Drizzt and Dahlia quickly find themselves embroiled in battle - a state he's coming to enjoy a little too much.

If you always have a book with you...
Even better then the first book in this series. Drizzt and Dalia really come to work with each other and a 'blast from the past' joins them! what a surprise for me when we found out who Barabbas is.
There is never a boring moment in Drizzt's life, and this book is no exception. The action was, as always, fantastic! But, more importantly, with the loss of his friends, Drizzt is really thinking about the why of his life. I think Mr. Salvatore is setting the stage for an even more epic Drizzt adventure when this series is finished.
Can't wait to listen to the third book and find out the fate of Barabbas!
I would recommend this book to everyone, because this book is really good.
Everything about this book is great.
He is awesome.

Action packed, thrilling, and a nail bitter.
The interaction of Drizzt and Dahlia.
I have listened to other Victor Bevine books and this is by far the best.
The book kept me on edge. Loved the action.
"Slow but sure."
Another great book from Savatore. Following on from book one is no mean feat. As a long time reader and listener of the Dark Elf books this one didn't disappoint. Quite slow to start but with patience comes reward. Ill leave the storyline to the synopsis. But definitely worth the read / listen. Another note for the audiobook listeners I found the reader interesting and he brought the characters alive with different voices and emotion was communicated very well. And was not the usual droning on and on while reading words from a page. Once again a good book and a good audio book.
"Didn't want to put this down!"
Great 2nd book in the series. The story is gripping and you are taken through a multitude of emotions as it progresses. As ever, the characters are voiced brilliantly, the narrator really giving the story and extra dimension. Fans of Dungeons and Dragons will not be disappointed.
