Overview

Return to the City of Spiders!

Still reeling from the death of Wulfgar, Drizzt is allowed little time to grieve, for dark elves are massing in the caverns deep under Mithral Hall. To protect his adopted home, he'll have to return to the city of his birth, the evil City of Spiders. Menzoberranzan is one of the most dangerous places in the already perilous Underdark on a good day, but for Drizzt, a renegade with a price on his head, its certain death ever to set foot there again. But Drizzt Do'Urden and his companions have faced certain death before, and will gladly spend their lives for the sake of the dwarves of Mithral Hall.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Starless Night is part of the continuing ``Forgotten Realms'' saga, which includes the author's best seller, The Legacy (Random Audio, 1992). Still shaken by the death of their comrade, Wolfgar, the companions, Regis, Brunor, Catibri, and Drizzt, mourn in their own ways. For Drizzt, however, sorrow turns to vengeance. Drizzt decides that he must return to the Underdark city of Menzoberranzan and see for himself that the drow do not again spread their evil on the surface world. Much like a fly who is caught in a spider's invisible web, Drizzt, too, finds himself entangled in events that he cannot control. Starless Night is good sword-and-sorcery fare and keeps a lively pace throughout. Narrator Simon Jones offers a solid performance that is occasionally marred by hokey sound effects. Those who are Dungeons and Dragons players will appreciate seeing the genre come to life. Recommended for ``gamers'' and listeners interested in fantasy.-- Adam Paul Hunt, ``California Bicyclist,'' San Francisco

Forgotten Realms: Starless Night (Legend of Drizzt #8) 4.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 180 reviews.

the original cover was down right baffling, as it portraited an excellent photo of Cattibrie beside a strange and VERY old picture of a drow male, who I always assumed was not Drizzt, but was most likely intended to be Drizzt by the publishers. Anyway, the new cover is MUCH BETTER. the story contained within is fast paced and will keep you on the edge of your seat. As always, Salvatore's action sequences are first rate, easily some of the best battle descriptions in all of fantasy. The explosive final fight is one of my all time favorites. I have probably read this novel three or four times since I was a kid. The pages fly by. This is truely ONE FOR THE SHELF!

Starless Night is da bomb!!!!!!! But the cover art sucks!! But the book is his best yet!! And I can't wait for The Lone Drow to come out!! It's really exciting when Drizzt leaves his home and returns to Menzoberranzan! And his 'friend' Catti-brie comes to bring him back. And let's not forget Artimis, finally geting to his senses! So sit back and enjoy Starless Night! And R.A Salvatore, I'm still waiting for Drizzt to kiss Catti-brie!! (A REAL kiss!)

Just too much of the same stuff - it's a fluff read that feels almost like a "remember when" epsiode. Same fights, same villains, same scenery.

This book is #8 in R.A Salvatore's dirzzt series. Again I found myself caught up in the rich world that this author has created. Defiantly a must read.

Although Drizzt once again falls in to his self-pity bits in the beginning, it is a very well written book overall. I like the character of Belwar a lot, so re-connecting with the underdark is a good sign to me. I still wonder who at TSR, then Wizards is responsible for requisitioning and approving such awefull cover art on most of the books in the series.

This book is action packed(like all the others) and was very fun to read. I often stayed up untill 2:00 in the morning just to get more action. In this book Drizzt(Drisst) decides he will go back into The Underdark to stop his evil kin once and for all...

Starless Night was a great book.My favorite part was not the big battles ,but Drizzt's personal battle which dealt with the way he felt for Catti-brie and the lost of Wufgar(Catti-brie's late fiance and Drizzt's dearest freind)

This book is a great book for I've read almost the hole saga. This is one of the best books I've read. It's got alot of suspence. It makes you set up in your sit. I also racamend THE DRK ELF TRILOGY, THE ICEWIND DALE TRILOGY, and the next books in line.

This is one of the best books that Salvatore has written. In the first few books you could tell that Cat and Drizzt had some chemistry between them. But it was either kept undercover or completely hidden. The reader always had to guess at their feelings for each other. But in this book it's obvious that their feelings go beyond friendship. I also liked when the stalactite hit the Baenre chapel. They really diserved it!
