Publisher's Summary

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.

eh

Is there anything you would change about this book?

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.

Has The Spine of the World: Legend of Drizzt: Paths of Darkness, Book 2 turned you off from other books in this genre?

Enjoyed the story.

Struggled with momentum as I usually do with these Drizzt books. Speaking of which, where was the Drizzt? Wulfgar's troubles are interesting, but I'm ready for the gang to get back together and wreck some monsters.

boring!

this book was mostly about Wolfgar and some random kids. I was not impressed. seems like the author had no ideas for a plot and wrote a bunch of crap to make money. Skip this book.

Not Salvatore's best work

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

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.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Sea of Swords and I'll be praying that it's good enough for me to keep going in the Drizzt world.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

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.

Any additional comments?

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.

Tough Read

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.

great story not trying to diminish

very disappointed in Wolfguard decision-making and the way he handled a lot of situations but understanding to enter battle which was very well written to where you feel why it is that way.

Just wait for it.

Ok not your typical Drizzt novel but don’t sleep on this, I almost did. I kept saying to myself, what does this have to do with Wulfgar, I knew it had to but I wanted more fighting, more backstabbing, more thievery not a love story, but I held fast and was rewarded with one of the best novels in the series thus far, it even made my eyes sweat a little.

Victor Bevine is on point, the rest ... Meh

This book drags, a lot. This review has been written 10 times over, but with little happening other than misunderstanding and people being self involved, I found myself listening just to ensure I don't miss anything referred to in later books...

Incredibly moving and profound

As to be expected from RA Salvatore. This book is a testimony the authors talent in generating true emotion and life lessons.

Relating the story of Wolfgar during his time apart from Drizzt and the others, this book has surprised me as one of my absolute favorite in the series. Thanks a lot Mr. Salvatore!

One of my favourites

A bit darker than the other stories but that just served to haul me even deeper into the emotion. It was just fantastic to get to know wolfgar better. Definitely one of my favourites of the series so far.
