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.

While I do miss the Companions of the Hall, I enjoy the opprotunity to explore this new Drizzt. In my opinion it is a testement to Salvatore's writing ability that he has managed to create a work that—though many well-loved characters are gone—still captures the essence of what the Legend of Drizzt embodies. I look forward to the next books, and cannot wait to see what happens next.

You get to see a different side of Drizzt. Although I do miss some of the characters that were his friends, I thought it was a good read.

As much as I loved the characters that were always around Drizzt, I am looking forward to a new chapter in his adventures. Not only does this give us the opportunity to fall in love with new characters it allows us to expore a different side of Drizzt. I for one cannot wait for the next book.

Somewhat disappointing. Why does nearly everybody die in a too-epic scenario? The book seems to be written with an "I'm tired of these characters" attidude.

**Spoiler Alert**

Interesting - Salvatore is ending an era with this book. In this book we see Drizzt move into adulthood. He's a darker more troubled character. The world has weighed on him and he has started to experience doubt. Doubt that he's making a difference, doubt that there is any permanency to his good deeds. I think it's amazing that Salvatore has started to explore a deeper connection between Drizzt and Jarlaxle and the introduction of some new characters to the mix is welcome. A fitting ending to a great tale. I look forward to reading the rest of this new series and seeing this new Drizzt.
