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.

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.

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.

Inconsistent narrator pronunciation drives me nuts

After narrating 8 other Salvatore books, Victor Bevine decided to change up his pronunciation of Wulfgar's battlehammer. Suddenly, "Aegis Fang" is being pronounced "Eegis Fang" and it's so very, very jarring.

Bevine also pronounces "lived" as in, "short-lived" as "short lye-vd" which always throws me off, but at least he's *consistently* mispronounced that word.

I'm just writing this review to complain about this sudden, jarring change to Eeegis Fang's pronunciation, as it comes up often as a plot point in this particular book. Tsk tsk!

Sound always fades

I love these books and the series in general. I only wish that the sound didn't always fade in and out. sometimes you can barely hear what the narrator is saying and then all of a sudden it's like he's yelling.

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.

Not the strongest of the series so far

I treat theses as good running books, I don’t like running to music and I can’t listen to highly detailed audiobooks because the require too much attention. These books are technically fine, the language and plot flows well but you can lose focus for a couple of seconds without any issues. As the characters and locations have already been covered in previous books, this is really the story of a battle, with a setup for the next more significant plot in the next book. The first third covers an event in Forbidden Realms history and puts an interesting spin on it.

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”
