Drizzt joins Bruenor on his quest for the fabled dwarven kingdom of Gauntlgrym: ruins said to be rich with ancient treasure and arcane lore. But before they even get close, another drow and dwarf pair stumbles across it first: Jarlaxle and Athrogate. In their search for treasure and magic, Jarlaxle and Athrogate inadvertently set into motion a catastrophe that could spell disaster for the unsuspecting people of the city of Neverwinter - a catastrophe big enough to lure even the mercenary Jarlaxle into risking his own coin and skin to stop it.
Unfortunately, the more they uncover about the secret of Gauntlgrym, the more it looks like they can’t stop it on their own. They’ll need help, and from the last people they ever thought to fight alongside again: Drizzt and Bruenor.
I'm not a huge fan of this narrator but the book was great. Exactly what I've come to love and expect from Salvatore
May he rest in peace. A slow start but one of the most gripping, meaningful endings in recent memory of the series. 10/10 would cry again.
Victor Bevine does an outstanding job of storytelling, with wonderful voice adaptations for each individual character
One of the most epic battles in the whole saga. Legendary episode. Really enjoyed it.
The timeline was very difficult to follow, especially in the beginning. I didn't get into the book before well over half of it. Very confused of characters aswell. But the narrator was good.
Not a bad story for RA Salvatore. His villains did seem pretty plain-brain as they did in the Canticle. They were not Drow-like or Methodical as Entrary. More like Obsessive Orcs. So, not to impressed with them. No great treasure was found, some made but still... Gauntlgrym held not so much wonder for me as it did for the Dwarves. I wasn't transported into the tale as in former books. All I can say is that some books, like this one, are transitioning the bigger plot. This book sets up the old group to be rejoined in the last few sentences.
This is as good a story as The Crystal Shard. I love that we have our old narrator back, and he does a phenomenal job of voicing all the characters.
While the end of the story was a little predictable, it in no way detracts from the amazing battle and the epic conclusion to the book.
This book left me wondering about how Drizzt ends up coming back from the frenzied depression he is in.
One of, if not my favorite of all the books I have read including Drizzt, especially with the epilogue if you have read other books with his closest of friends.
Great story. The voices sometimes did not change from character to character. A tough story. Especially in the beginning. Definitely not faint hearted.
R A Salvatore seems to have run out of ideas. The same stories are being retold with a slight twist.
He's also succumbing to Monty Haul syndrome: each encounter has to be with increasingly power monsters.
I suppose killing off characters is easier than trying character development.
Enjoyable but feeling tired.
