I have not been that fond of the Neverwinter saga, but The Last Threshold was better than the others, in spite of the ending.

The upcoming Sundering, from my understanding, is the return of the dead gods, and Ao putting all of the gods in their place and putting an end to their squabbling. I'm a fan of the gods, so I'm both nervous and excited about it. The next book in the Drizzt saga, the Companions, is the first in the Sundering series. They will be by different authors and featuring different characters, so new, and some we have seen from previous books. The Sundering will be taking place in 1486, and TLT ends two years before. The 18 year sleep Drizzt and the others experienced in the enchanted forest was probably Salvatore's way of "catching up" and getting prepared for the next book. From my understanding, it was all intentional on his part, but it did feel rushed.

*spoilers*
I found out about Drizzt's death prior to actually reading the book, but my throat still tightened a little. It was kind of bittersweet, because he was reunited with Catti-brie, so that made me happy, but the mournful cry of Guen as Drizzt breathed his last was heart-wrenching. I hope this isn't the last of the beloved panther. And this may seem irrelevant, but I would like to see Zaknafein, Drizzt's father, appear again. In Passage to Dawn, he appeared to Drizzt and told him his spirit was in a good place, and promised they would meet again. I hope Salvatore remembers this. I found out his soul was in the Green Fields, which is indeed a good place, but it is the halfling realm, which doesn't make sense for Zak. Perhaps Salvatore mistook it for Mielikki's realm? Still, the goddess does gift Drizzt, so hopefully they will be united. I admit, I am a sap, and I like happy endings (though I don't like all rainbows and butterflies). Surely, though, if Drizzt is reunited with the others, he should be reunited with Zak, too? I'm crossing my fingers. Please, please?

The intrigue about the gods was, well, intriguing. There was much speculation of whether Drizzt was a Chosen of Lolth or Mielikki. Perhaps the 18 year sleep was the forest goddess' way of hiding Drizzt from the eyes of the Spider Queen? Perhaps Drizzt will undergo apotheosis like Shevarash did and become some sort of demi-god? I was hoping Paul S. Kemp's Godborn would be first in the Sundering novels, but after reading LTL, I'm glad it's the Companions instead!

His books seem to be getting worse. The story itself seemed to lack "heart" for lack of a better description. Also there was a lot of  different plots that seem to contribute little, if anything, to the main storyline. Also, the ending sucked. They wander off and fall asleep for eighteen years. Why? What was the point? Then after being attacked by his ex lover who apparently has not been redeemed in any way, despite signs to the contrary. He is whisked away, with no indication of how, to a rock I thought was destroyed in a previous book. Where he dies? Maybe? I found this book very disappointing and wish I had followed my initial impulse not to buy it. After all the last several books were not that great.

    *****No Spoilers***

    *****No Spoilers*****

    Let me begin with this line so that you will better understand the last line. I have been a fan of R.A. Salvatore sine he introduced this character. I have read many of his books; this includes every book regarding Drizzt. I could go on and on about what a great writer he is, but since you are reading this review you already know that. That being said....

    Ignore all of the one or two line reviews. They are either not longtime fans or complete idiots.

    If you think that you are in for another grand adventure, you are sorely mistaken. Without giving away any of the details, there are maybe four main story lines. By the time you finish this book; none will have been completed. You will be left wondering and wandering. Wandering around your room wondering where it all went wrong. If you are a true fan of Salvatore and wish to remain one, then I recommend that you do not read this book. I HAVE BEEN A FAN OF RA SALVATORE FOR ALL OF MY ADULT LIFE AND I WILL NEVER PURCHASE ANOTHER HIS BOOKS. This book ends that poorly.

    skip this saga, go back to the earlier series, and get a better read.

    awful ending to an awful series (Neverwinter saga). this series bored me, and the ending was disappointing. I only kept reading it, hoping it would get better. Alas, I was disappointed to the bitter end.

    Are you serious?

    I think RA's son or some other less than fluently literate person must have written that book. Redundant and totally lower caliber of writing than what I had come to expect from Mr. Salvatore. Very disapointed. I feel as though he just stuck his hand in my pocket and stole 25 bucks. From the use of and lack of certain words and phrases it seems possible to me that his kid or someone else may be writing for him. I don't know but after all the money I have spent on his books I feel I deserve better than this dung. Thanks alot.

    Just want to say thanks to all the *&^&*$#@! That GAVE AWAY THE ENDING! Way to ruin it for the people who want a review of the book not a summary!

    Ugh

    This was a complete disappointment, each of the previous books was exciting and interesting, but it felt like Mr. Salvatore could not find a good ending, so he just rushed to the easiest ending he could think of. These characters deserve better than this.
