An uneasy peace between the dwarves of Mithral Hall and the orcs of the newly established Kingdom of Many-Arrows can't last long. The orc tribes united under Obould begin to fight each other, and Bruenor is determined to finish the war that nearly killed him and almost destroyed everything he's worked to build.
But it will take more than swords and axes to bring a lasting peace to the Spine of the World. Powerful individuals on both sides may have to change the way they see each other. They may have to start to talk. And it won't be easy.
This book wasn't just the next installment in the long-running saga of the famous dark elf, but the beginning of a bold new trilogy that will help change the face of the Forgotten Realms world forever.
Don't forget to listen to more adventures of the Forgotten Realms.

Marks narration is terrible, very difficult to listen to. After listening to all the previous Legend of Drizzt books by Victor Bevine we became spoiled with his high quality narration. Mark mispronounces so many of the names and his voices are terrible. Please redo this trilogy with Victor so people can enjoy it like all the rest of the books.
Great story but the narrator's word pronunciation and impressions are terrible. Bring back Victor Bevine!
I love the RA Salvatore Drizz't books, but the reader on this one, destroyed the story!
I will never listen to anything read by him again!
I was upset as I could not even listen to the book he was so bad!
Mark Bramhall does a disservice to the book. His constant mispronunciation of names is is a constant distraction. Somewhere after the last book Wulfgar became a two pack a day smoker. In the Icewind Dale books they give descriptions of every character and races voices. The man did no research. Mr. Bramhall should stick to narrating Dr. Suess.
Due to this "issue" I found myself daydreaming and loosing focus on the book. He somehow managed to make every battle sound like the play by play from a chess match.
Going on would be kicking a dead horse.
I just started the book but with the monotone and halting reading I am struggling to continue. I am would never recommend a book read by Mark Bramhall. I think I will just read the synopsis of this trilogy so I can just move on to the next story read by Victor Bevine, now there is a good narrator.
No motivation reading the book. The narrator is missing excitement and dedication, Previous narrratar immersed himself in the story and what was happening within. Story still amazing.
First off, if you want to read this book make sure that you start with Homeland and continue the series from there. Now with that out of the way. There are lots of people that I would cast as a narrator: the first few that come to mind would be Victor Bevine, George Guidall, Derek Perkins, Dick Hill, Marc Thompson and Simon Prebble. I could go on with the list but I think that my point is made.
All of these narrators are far better than mark bramhall. The fact of the matter is that mark bramhall is not a narrator and if you call him one then you are giving narrators a bad name.
My biggest grief with mark is that he sounds like windows xp "Microsoft Sam" is reading this book. He is not a smooth reader and his monotone herky jerky (meaning his continuous start stop on each word) and mispronunciation of words is just flat out annoying!
R.A. Salvatore spent a lot of time writing these books and sadly, mark bramhall has wrecked this book.
Audible, shame on you for even letting mark read even one of these GREAT! books, let alone several of them.
if the previous narrator Victor Bevine wasn't available or just can't narrate any more there's oh so very much better narrators.
Please have one of the suggested readers reread the books that mark bervine has read and perhaps let mark do something where his voice is not involved. (translation: empty the trash, sharpen pencils etc.)
I dread having to listen to the next two books in the series being mangled. I may return the audible versions and just read them. My mind wanders and I am bored by the delivery. Only bruenors voice has any character
the book is well written but this trilogy uses a different narrator. if you change narrators they should have listen to the previous reader or at least know how to pronounce the names correctly. I was unable to finish book three I was so disgusted.
