Since time immemorial, humans have worshipped the gods they call Fhrey, truly a race apart: invincible in battle, masters of magic, and seemingly immortal. But when a god falls to a human blade, the balance of power between humans and those they thought were gods changes forever. Now only a few stand between humankind and annihilation: Raithe, reluctant to embrace his destiny as the God Killer. Suri, a young seer burdened by signs of impending doom. And Persephone, who must overcome personal tragedy to lead her people.

TGR does a great job again bringing the characters to life. The story itself is well done with some nice twists , some of which are made obvious to hide some others. Wonderful New fantasy world that has a lot of potential.

Dante and Blays have forced Gladdic from the Collen Basin. But the victory might be only the first battle in a much larger war. With the land on the brink of starvation and politically fractured, Dante and Blays scramble to secure Collen's food, borders, and allies. Before their work is done, rumor arrives from Mallon. The enemy is mustering for another attack. Even if Collen can weather the coming storm, there's no guarantee their independence will last out the year.

Robertson and T.G.R are a great combo. The characters are brought to life and are distinct from one another so you aren't confused to who is speaking. The story itself is fantastic, Blase and Dante make me feel as if it myself and my best friend in this very interesting and amazing fantasy world.

The White Tree (book one): In Mallon the dark magic of the nether has been banned for centuries. Its users have been driven out or killed. Its secrets lost. But the holy book of the nethermancers has just been found by a boy named Dante. As he works to unlock the book's power, he's attacked in the street. The nethermancers aren't gone—and they want their book back. Caught between death cultists and the law, Dante fights for his life, aided by his growing skills and a brash bodyguard named Blays.

I'll keep it short. Well thought out story that covers seeks to cover many emotions and moral issues. The author does a great job of doing so and the story never stagnates. T.G.R does a great job v.a. , he's an expert in the craft and almost always keeps the different characters sounding distinct and reflecting the tone and severity of situations.

Something akin to peace has come to the Underdark. The demon hordes have receded, and now the matron mothers argue over the fate of Drizzt Do'Urden. Even so, it becomes clear to one matriarch after another that while the renegade drow may come and go, Menzoberranzan, the City of Spiders, will crawl forever on. And so Drizzt is free to return to his home on the surface once again. Scores are settled as lives are cut short, yet other lives move on. For the lone drow, there is only a single final quest: a search for peace, for family, for home.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it is gripping, emotional and satisfying.

What other book might you compare Hero to and why?

Not really sure, this Drizzt book was quite different then the rest because of what was going on with Drizzt.

Which character – as performed by Victor Bevine – was your favorite?

Jarlaxle I think is portrayed almost exactly how I have imagined him to be portrayed for years of reading.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed for sure and there were a few times where tears definitely starting to form.

Any additional comments?

If you're a fan of the series and up to date, get this book. If you've never delved into The Legend of Drizzt, start the beginning. R.a. Only improves with each book until the series has become legendary.
