Publisher's Summary

Gods walk the Realms!

Rising up from the black depths of the Underdark, the drow once more meet the dwarves of Mithral Hall. Bruenor Battlehammer, with Drizzt at his side, won't go down without a fight - but they'll have to fight without Wulfgar or Catti-brie at their sides.

I finally made it back

I started my first reading of this series many years ago. I made it all the way to siege of darkness, but for my life got too busy to complete the series. now that I've have audible I've been going back through the series and I just finished these of darkness and I can't wait to start on Passage to Dawn.

Perfect stories, but needs a new narrator!

Salvatore's Drizzt stories are fantastic, standard-setting high fantasy. However, listening to Victor Bevine read the books is painful. He whispers most of the time, then nearly yells when a battle begins. I had to adjust the audio dozens of times because of this. The every day conversational tone of talking characters (meaning Bevine whispers) is just out of place. I love these stories, but they're ruined with this narrator. I'm hoping that whoever hold the rights to have these books re-read by someone else, please do so! If they aren't re-done, I'll probably stick with reading them the old fashioned way via paperback or hardcover.

Wipeout is what I want to say here

While reading this story for some reason I kept hearing the song ‘Wipe Out’ and it fits this story! We see some many things we thought were solid and couldn’t be changed or eliminated wiped out of this story line for good!

We see Drizzt leaving Menzoberranzan with a path of destruction behind him. It’s amazing what a few people do when your people are ruled by fear! We follow Drizzt story along with those who went to Menzoberranzan to help him. There were some nice reunions here as well!

We see the battle for Mithral Hall which was talked about a lot in the previous book. During this battle we see the fall of many of our loved friends in this series! We also see some come back to us! We also meet some old enemies during the battle.

We see some of the battles between Artemis Entreri and Drizzt which based off of previous battles we know who won in the end. We will have to wait to see what the next installment in this series brings to us and where it goes from there.

Not perfect, but worth it!

I was annoyed by Bevine’s volume and how his volume would rise and fall randomly. It makes sense why, but it is still jarring. And he does pronounce some words differently than I am used to, but that is just how he talks, so I can’t blame him for that.

The story is great, though it was indeed very long. There was much strategy and intrigue but not much character development. But some important plot points did actually take place, so I don’t advise skipping over this book.

I genuinely enjoyed the book, but most of the other complaints were legit. Long, tedious, and the speaker has his own unique style. BUT DON’T SKIP THIS STORY!!! It does add value to Mithril Hall and the character’s dependence of each other.

Good but drags a little towards the end

This particular installation of the series focuses a lot on battles, which if you're into you will love. It reminded me more of a Warhammer 40k book, but still a worthy instalment in the series.

Great culmination to the menzobaranzon story arc

Great book and story, beautifully narrated as has come to be expected. Little disappointed because the end felt a bit rushed. Kind of “blink and you miss it”
