But for a dark elf renegade from a city ruled by priestesses of a demon goddess, no peace can long last. It is Lolth herself, the dreaded Queen of the Demonweb Pits, who musters her followers to pour up from the black depths of the Underdark to reclaim for their goddess the one soul that had managed to elude her: ...

Overview

Having found a measure of peace among the dwarves in the reclaimed Mithral Hall, Drizzt begins to know contentment for perhaps the first time in his tumultuous life. But for a dark elf renegade from a city ruled by priestesses of a demon goddess, no peace can long last. It is Lolth herself, the dreaded Queen of the Demonweb Pits, who musters her followers to pour up from the black depths of the Underdark to reclaim for their goddess the one soul that had managed to elude her: the soul of Drizzt Do'Urden.

A prelude to an upcoming trilogy set after the Icewind Dale Trilogy, The Legacy ties together those series and the Dark Elf Trilogy. The beleagured dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden thinks he has all his problems solved . . . until the Spider Queen, Lloth, vows to poison his life with vengeance.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
The legendary adventures of the dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden continue in the seventh volume of Wizards of the Coast's lovingly produced hardcover reissue of R. A. Salvatore's classic fantasy saga -- each edition with stunning new cover art by artist extraordinaire Todd Lockwood.

In The Legacy, the beleaguered dark elf is, unbelievably, experiencing contentment. His longtime friend, the legendary dwarf Bruenor Battlehammer, has reclaimed his throne in Mithral Hall; Bruenor's adopted human daughter, Catti-brie, is about to wed the barbarian Wulfga; and even the wayward halfling Regis has returned for the wedding. With all of Drizzt's companions back together, life is good -- until the seemingly unstoppable assassin Artemis Entreri reappears, bent on defeating Drizzt once and for all. And when dark elves are found in the tunnels beneath Mithral Hall, the upcoming wedding may turn into a mass funeral…

Although all of Salvatore's Drizzt Do'Urden adventures can be read as stand-alone novels, Wizards of the Coast has put the saga in its proper (and highly recommended) chronological order. Fans of adventure fantasy who have yet to experience Salvatore's dark elf -- comparable to classic swashbuckling heroes like Michael Moorcock's Elric and Edgar Rice Burroughs's John Carter -- should begin with the first book in the Legend of Drizzt, Homeland, and continue from there. Longtime followers of Salvatore have known for decades that his Drizzt Do'Urden novels are pure adventure fantasy gold. This timeless saga has it all: great characters, nonstop action, and universal themes that readers of any age can relate to -- honor, dedication, forgiveness, and above all, the importance of friendship.

Product Details

Meet the Author

R.A. Salvatore
R.A. Salvatore
R. A. Salvatore was born in Massachusetts in 1959. His first published novel was The Crystal Shard. He has since published more than a dozen novels, including the New York Times bestsellers The Halfling's Gem, Sojourn, The Legacy, and Starless Night. He makes his home in Massachusetts with his wife, Diane, and their three children.

Good To Know

Well, I just turned 50, but I'm still a clean-up hitter on the softball field. A couple of years ago, I found myself in horrible shape and feeling lousy all the time, and so, with the help of my wonderful and beautiful wife of 25 years, I started taking my health seriously again. Now I feel better than I did when I was 40. Fit Camp three times a week and yoga and softball and all the rest.

The other thing that I've come to learn about myself is that R. A. Salvatore and Bobby Salvatore are two different people (and I much prefer Bobby, thank you very much). It's not that I lie to readers at book signings, or anything like that, it's just that the things that are important to me are the little things in life: my family, my home. Writing is what I do, but it's not who I am. I remember one time about 20 years ago, I went back to where I had worked to see my brother, who still worked there. Gary was a few years older, and was, of course, my hero. An associate found us in the parking lot and nudged my brother, asking him what it felt like to have a younger brother who was so much more successful than he.

Gary, of course, took it all in stride, turning what might have been an awkward moment into a joke. Gary died a few years later and I'll never forget the lines of mourners -- grown men crying like babies. He was such a big part of the community, as a friend and a coach to so many kids over the years.

That brought me back to the parking lot and the awkward moment, and the truth of it all: I was not and have never been more successful than my brother, and nothing I can do as a writer will get me there. Only the things I do as a human being, a father, a neighbor, a friend, can bring me into his league.

    This book is great. If you like anything with action check this out. I have read about 10 books by Salvatore and all are great, this is no exception.

    This book is the to similar to Exile.

    This book, the sequel to The Halfling's Gem is written about the efforts of Artemis Enteri and the dark elves of Menzobarrenson to recapture Drizzt and sacrifice him in order to regain the favor of Lloth, their dark god. This book was decent, but I got the feeling I had read it before. Like many sequels, this book is simply a rehash of old material in order to generate sales from innocent consumers who read the first one, but want more of the story. What book in the series is it like, you ask? Exile. In Exile the story was almost exactly the same: Drizzt is underground being chased by dark elves attempting to gain Lloth's favor, he is slowed down by having to protect a weaker companion, and his close friend dies. Also, he fights one of the few opponents who could possibly defeat him. Exile contained many of the key elements of a good book: the characters were not perfect and always acted in character, the setting was fantastic, and the ending was by no means obvious. This is all in The Legacy. The Legacy certainly could have been better written, but it's still a decent book: it's just that anyone who has read Exile will feel like they are reading it all over again. So don't read them both, just read one or the other.

    Great Book

    Though book six (the Halfling's Gem) of the Legend of Drizzt series didn't really leave you much of a teaser to keep reading, the Legacy is real quick at grabbing your attnetion and keeping you from putting the book down! I was real pleased with the surprises and the nail biting intensity of some of the chapters. I was real satisfied with this book!

    Another slam dunk for Salvatore

    This book is #7 in the Drizzt series and kicks off the legacy of the drow installment. I keep waiting for this series to grow old and tired but R.A Salvatore continues to amaze me with his world expansion character development and pure adrenaline pumping adventure. I recommend this book to anyone that has read the previous 6.

    Great book

    this is my third favorite book ever. READ IT. I have fallen in love with all of the R.A. salvatore books and of couse the characters he creates. before I read R.A. Salvatore I thought I read alot and I thought they were good books. I was wrong. Now all I do is read and no logger like to read I have a passion for it. This book should have more then 5 stars and if I could I would give it 10. If you read this book and are not happy with it then you should never read again.

    fantasic!

    loved the characters. Each of Drizzt's friends have there own kick butt ways of killing the enemy. Drizzt's is really unstoppable drow with is two scimitars he can execute almost anything. Drizzt's friends, Catt-brie, Bruenor, Guenhwyvar(an black panther), Wulfgar, and Regis are very interesting characters. The enemies are clearly descripted of how nasty they are and evil. My favorite enemies that drizzt's and his friends had to fight were the drows. From my point of view i see that the drows are imposing enemies.

    Cover art confusion

    I'm still not sure why, but there are two different cover art versions of this book. There's one where Drizzt looks too human and is fighting wolves. This one is generally disliked due to its inaccurate portrayal of the main character. But I've seen another one, this one picturing Drizzt the way he should be (young) fighting a drider with Guenhwyvar. I would definitely recommend this one. Both books have the same story.

    Great book

    I love this book, but I have a real problem with the art on the cover. It is not consistent with the art of the other books in the series. Drizzt looks like an old wrinkly human rather than his great drowiness. And what is it with that ugly skull cap, it makes him look idiot! GOSH!!! The art just is not what I have come to know as a great depiction of Everyone's favorite Drow. This same mistake was made in the original covers and the cover of the game book of Menzzoberranzan, I had hoped this artistic error would not be repeated in the new hard cover series. I am disappointed. Sorry about the bad book review Mr.Salvatore, but you are still the best writer, keep them coming.

    Good, but getting repetitive

    Oh well. Yet another book about Drizzt & Co. Quite nice and everything, sure. A must read after all the earlier ones, so you will know what happens to the characters. Well written, blah blah blah; enough good stuff to warrant 4 stars. It is just that the good stuff is rather the same as earlier; and so is the less good stuff, only that was better when first used. Since everyone knows what's good about Salvatore's books (or can just check some other review to find out), I might as well mention som less flattering points. This all is getting repetitive, and it does not feel like there would have been much reason to write anything more about these characters, at least beyond making money. The same old villains come back (those bloody darkelves just can't leave Drizzt alone, and that stupid - although he is generally speaking an interesting character - assassin just doesn't know when he's lost). It is like some TV-series that has gone on for too long. But, hey, it's still good.

    In this book Wulfgar and Catti-brie are going to be married, when Bruenor discovers goblins in the lower passages of Mithril Hall, and they all go to dispatch them. Guess who interupts their progress...yup, Drow. Will their lives will change forever down in the caverns? Read to find out, you will really like this book.
