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.

    There needs to be more.....

    There's some really great and deep parts in this book, but I really feel like there needs to be more. I felt like things evolved too quickly.....and now once again I'm left hanging....like always with few answers. Definitely get this book though.....you won't be dissapointed, but most likely will feel like your missing something at the end.

    Another great reat but...

    As always Mr. Salvatore has outdone himself. Kinda bummed out that Drizzt is dead and gone. But, happens to us all and had to happen to him sooner or later. Found this book lacking in the action/battle sequences and a tad slow and repetitive at times but all in all an enjoyable read. Looking forward to more great stories.

    it was a good read but still failed in my expectations..... the middle of the book was a grand melting pot of plots from earlier books and not just a simple story that engrossed me as a reader i was really hoping for more from that battler aging  dwarf ... not that greatly done IMHO  one other thing was the ending left you kinda confused as to the the fate of a beloved character
