Overview

A new mass market edition of the New York Times best-selling sword and sorcery classic, The Legacy is Drizzt at his scimitar-wielding best!

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.

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.

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, 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.
