In the final book of the number-four New York Times best-selling Neverwinter saga, Drizzt Do’Urden navigates a winding path littered with secrets and lies. Tangled up in his companion Dahlia’s dark secrets, the ties that once held her close to Drizzt threaten to tear as her bonds to his former foe, Artemis Entreri, continue to grow.
Meanwhile, in the caverns of Gauntlgrym, the drow Tiago Baenre enlists the help of Bregan D’aerthe in his quest to destroy Drizzt. While making promises they may not keep, the agents of the elite drow mercenary group hide plans of their own. Determined to stand for what’s right in the Realms once again, Drizzt forges a new road north - toward Icewind Dale. Will his new companions follow? Can he fight the darkness alone? Either way, he knows now where he’s headed - back to the only place that’s ever felt like home.

Salvatore does a great job wrapping things up, after having Drizzt so long out of his element, he is finally back to living his life as we expect it. And anytime we get to see Jarlaxle is a good day indeed!
The rescue by Jarlaxle
Dahlia was truly a disgusting character. I have no idea why the story needed anyone so tedious and stupid. Having her be a lover for Drizzt was so to do nothing but make him look a total twit and that put his role in the book out of character with Drizzt, which in turn made the entire story just tedious.
Why do authors want to bring back dead characters? The returning of Artemis Entreri was unsurprising because of his dagger. However, the basis of the story is Drizzt wanting his past back and it looks like the author will give it to him. Without all this it was a good story, but it felt empty. It would have been a better story if this had been a real story with substance instead of filler.
Just love the characters and they keep getting better ... Please keep them coming Mr Salvatore ..... more more more I tell you!!!
Trying to review without giving away spoilers. All I'm going to say in relation to this book is: if you are considering reading this book, do read, you won't be disappointed. But it is the end of the Neverwinter series, and the end of that particular series which began with Homeland. There are other Drizzt books, but this is the end of that series. No other way to explain it.
Now for a real review and opinions. Navigate away now if you don't want to know what's coming.
This book left more questions than answers.
Also my most disliked character, the emotionally abusive PTSD she-elf, lives. I like to think Entreri succeeds where Drizzd did not. I'm glad to know the series goes on and the Companions of the Hall are reunited. reading on now!
I came this far in the series to not continue on, although i was disappointed in the last book. This one continues on to delve in to Drizzt's feelings too much for my liking and leaves several loose ends. I think he tried to make it seem like the noose was closing in around him, but I never got that feeling, only felt like a good fight was coming that never happened. Wraps everything up "pretty good" in the end.
