Publisher's Summary

At long last, New York Times best-selling author R. A. Salvatore returns with one of fantasy's most beloved and enduring icons, the dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden, in an all-new trilogy full of swordplay, danger, and imaginative thrills.

Centuries ago, in the city of Menzoberranzan, the City of Spiders, the City of Drow, nestled deep in the unmerciful Underdark of Toril, a young weapon master earned a reputation far above his station or that of his poor house.

Zaknafein.

The greater nobles watched him, and one powerful Matron - Malice - decided to take him as her own. She connived with rival houses to secure her prize, but it was ultimately the roguish Jarlaxle who caught him.

Thus sparked the birth of two key moments in Menzoberranzan: the coupling of a noble and weapon master that would produce Drizzt Do’Urden...and the friendship between Zaknafein and Jarlaxle.

R. A. Salvatore reveals the Underdark anew through the eyes of of this unlikely pair - offering a fresh take on the intrigue and opportunities to be found in the shadows, and providing a fascinating prelude to the journeys that have shaped the modern-day Forgotten Realms. There, a Zaknafein and Drizzt are joined together in a series of trials that parallel those of centuries long past, even though their paths no longer seem to be aligned. 

How will a father, so long constrained by the vicious and conservative world of the drow, be able to reconcile his ingrained prejudices with the world and companions of his enlightened son?

The answer lies in their desire for peace over chaos. And as long as the scourge of the goddess Lolth’s ambitions still remain, both are determined to keep her dark will at bay. But the spider queen is powerful, and now demons have been unleashed on the unwitting denizens of the surface world. United in purpose - and through their mutual friendship with Jarlaxle - Zaknefein and Drizzt will need to put aside their differences in order to keep the ones they love safe.

Is still dazzling us with Drizzt. . .

When I didn't think that R.A. Salvatore could take Drizzt Do'Urden & his allies' story any further! He had me on the edge of my seat several times trying to guess where this story was going to go. It will be a long year of waiting till the next book in the series is released.

Great story!

I have been reading the Drizzt series of novels since I was a teen and slowly collecting the audiobooks over the past couple years. As a fan of the character Jarlaxle I was very happy with this book and the narrator does a wonderful job bringing the story to life for me.

Drizzt is not timeless, The story telling is old.

The production of this audiobook is appalling. There are no gaps between words, no gaps between sentences or paragraphs.
It is very confusing, one moment we are on a paragraph the next we have skipped to a new paragraph with completely different . If this is a new way of editing, forget it make it more natural.

The story is old and the pop philosophy seems so overdone. The story is lost by the complex story without clear motivation or goals. This is a really terrible book.

Conflicted

Would've rated it higher but I can't stand flash backs either in books nor films. I always want the story to be moving forward, any part of the characters past should be able to be presented without entire chapters dedicated to it.

more of the same.

as a fan of salvatore who has read or listened to almost all his books I enjoyed and was disappointed by this one. after all these years his writing seems the same. not better, not worse. same descriptions and predictability. same formula and plot. I do like his writing and books but there are certainly ti.es I find myself hoping for a chapter or plot line to end. i believe him to be a better writer than this. i did however like learning about the past before drizzt and will be purchasing the next book. if you like his books, you will like this one. if you are tired of them. this wont help mich, but I would read it anyway.

Drizzt

Drizzt is one of the best characters I have had the privilege to know. Victor Bavine just makes all the characters in the Drizzt series come to life. I just lose myself in the atmosphere of these books. They are a pleasure to own. THANK YOU R A SALVATORE, for writing such marvellous, nail biting, heart warming, and sometimes tear jerking, books.

Amazing

Loved this book, wish that certain sections were not so cursory but truly felt the story went into a direction that all of us have been waiting for a long while. I truly cannot wait for the next book
Never stop Mr Salvatore, and thank you for your golden performance once again Mr Bevine

Quality going down, predictability going up

Quality going down, predictability going up
probably will be my last Drizzle book even if I have read all up to now. Just many more fiction writers trying to do something original to spend time on a book that feels more of the same but in a bad way.

five stars through rose coloured lenses.

long time fans of these characters will get a dose of something they've been waiting for, for decades.
