Join the world's most famous drow elf in the penultimate chapter of the Legend of Drizzt series! Spending time in the unimaginable torture chambers of the Abyss for even a day would be enough to break even the heartiest soul, and the barbarian Wulfgar was there for years. When he returns, his friends find him a changed man, and not changed for the better. But Wulfgar's road to redemption is one he must travel on his own, even if it leads to the bottle.

This book is for Wulfgar fans, that are interested in seeing the character spiral down into a drunken fool by making poor decision after poor decision. I'm about half way through the book and still no Drizzt, Bruenor, Regis, or Catti-brie.
Sea of Swords and I'll be praying that it's good enough for me to keep going in the Drizzt world.
Disappointment. I usually love the Drizzt books finishing them in a day or two tops. I've been trying to get through this for over a month and I'm still only half way through.
If I could do it again. I'd just find a plot summary of the book and skip this one. It was a waste of a credit.
The first half keeps switching between Wulfgar and then to people that just seems to be from a romance novel or soap opera. Eventually you do figure out why these people were in the story, however it could have simply done with a few paragraphs of backstory after their paths cross with Wulfgar and didnt need all the boring crap.
Great book. Beautifully written. Drizzts' monologues more than rival those of Ishmael in Moby Dick.
Victor Bevine continues to astound me.
There's a side plot of small fiefdom string throughout that, while I'm glad it wraps up wonderfully, is just a boring (almost painful) slog distracting from anything interesting for the first 2/3 of the book
I would recommend this book so as to complete the story but it is not as good as the other books in the Drizzt Series. This books main focus is on Wolfgar and his escapades on his own.
I would of put in a lot more exciting battles. The explanations of the combats left me wanting.
I love the way Victor Bevine narrates, if it was not for him I probably would have skipped the book.
Its follow up is already written as the Sea of Swords. I do not think that there is much left to say about this story.
Keep your mind active.
Not the typical story of Drizzt. This story concentrates on Wulfgar's struggles to come to terms with his past and his demons. Watching Wulfgar’s decent into depravity, was not enjoyable. I tried but did not enjoy the story of the peasant girl and it was very hard to push through this novel. Victor Bevine is a very good narrator and he made the story tolerable. I hope that the next book picks up.
