Overview

With the last of his trusted companions having fallen, Drizzt is alone--and free--for the first time in almost a hundred years. Guilt mingles with relief, leaving Drizzt uniquely vulnerable to the persuasions of his newest companion--Dahlia, a darkly alluring elf and the only other member of their party to survive the cataclysm at Mount Hotenow. But traveling with Dahlia is challenging in more ways than one. As the two companions seek revenge on the one responsible for leveling Neverwinter--and nearly Luskan as well--Drizzt finds his usual moral certainty swept away by her unconventional views. Forced to see the dark deeds that the common man may be driven to by circumstance, Drizzt begins to find himself on the wrong side of the law in an effort to protect those the law has failed. Making new enemies, as his old enemies acquire deadly allies, Drizzt and Dahlia quickly find themselves embroiled in battle--a state he's coming to enjoy a little too much.

Meet the Author

R.A. Salvatore
R.A. Salvatore is the New York Times best-selling author of more than forty novels, including the popular Forgotten Realms series The Legend of Drizzt®. He's an avid gamer, father of three, and loyal citizen of Red Sox Nation.

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.

    Rip Off

    Why is this book so expensive? I bought the Nook hoping the books would be cheaper, i guess it might be time to get rid of this device and just buy paperbacks again.

    Couldn't put the book down...

    I finished this book in two days, it was that good. R.A. Salvatore was already my favorite author of all time but if its possible, he became more so. And the sad part of it is, I read this book feverishly not for Drizzt but to hear the greatest assassin in the realms finally called by his true name. That being said, Salvatore didn't disappoint me in any aspect of this novel, all points were finely written and my hat is off once again to Mr. Salvatore

    Action, Adventure and a better than ever Drizzt!

    I have to admit, I was pretty rough in my review of Gauntlgrym. Neverwinter has lots of action although a little slow in the beginning. I am not a Forgotten Realms expert, so I found myself frequently looking up the types of characters that are in the book (tiefling,malebranche, etc). That is my only complaint and it is a small one. I feel that Mr. Salvatore addresses the many complaints longtime fans had about Gauntlgrym concerning Drizzt. I left this book satisfied about the present and looking forward to the future. I miss the Companions, but I am eager to read about the new friends and alliances Drizzt develops. Long Live Drizzt :)

    A Fantastic Drizzt Novel

    Neverwinter is an excellent addition to the long-lived Legend of Drizzt series of books. Not only does it adhere to the look and feel of the Forgotten Realms, but you can see the action-packed scenes play out in your mind simply by reading R.A. Salvatore's descriptions. As a book, it's got a great storyline that develops very well from beginning to end. As a Dungeons & Dragons novel, it reads like a series of RPG adventures. There's definitely something in here for everyone including excellent fantasy fiction, more adventures in Forgotten Realms, and more importantly, the continuation of the Neverwinter series as Drizzt fights against the opposition.

    Keeps getting better

    It’s best if you read Gauntlgrym before diving into this one. Lots of events are referenced to the previous book and the story is continuous.

    Again, this book does not disappoint the typical Drizzt fan. I really like how his character is developing so far. There are moments throughout the book where I too, feel the loss of his previous closest friends but yet these new experiences Dahlia is introducing to him is also welcoming.

    I really am liking Dahlia as a character. In a sense, it’s nice to read how both her and Drizzt are bringing out these changes within each other as they’re both different in personality and very different on their views and opinions. I also have to admit I also like the romantic tension between them, it was inevitable and although she’s definitely not as fun loving as Cattie-Brie, but there’s something very likable in Dahlia. The way she fights, her sly sneaky ways, and who can not comment about her sultry vampy qualities as well?

    The plot in this book was well done. There’s a lot of intrigue and backroom planning and plotting. I really enjoyed the story with Barrabus the Gray. I wasn’t expecting that little twist but it was really fun to read! The other story arc, with Sylora Salm was also really good and the ending as usual with R A Salvatore, is fantastic and makes you want to read the next book in the series.

    The action scenes in this book is the same, but as always, it’s wonderful to read and can be easily pictured. Salvatore’s writing doesn’t change but his characters do - and that’s a great thing. I loved the ending it does leave room for more questions but now it seems Drizzt will be on another adventure to help an ‘old friend’ out.

    Definitely recommended for Drizzt fans. The plot in this series just keeps getting better and better. Everything is changing, but I think it’s for the better in this series. Let’s hope it never stops!

    Nice second in this series

    I really enjoyed this book. I was sorry the companions had to end but, I think we will get a new group with ArtemisEnteri, Dahlia, and I bet Jarlaxle comes back into picture. I am looking forward to the next book and see where it leads.

    Don't like it.

    don't like it. Don't like the new character or the new land of the dead. Sorry. I love most of Salvator's work.

    Not impressed

    Sorry, but it's definitely time for this series to die. The writing is sophomoric.

    The last series I actually liked from Salvatore was "The Sellswords". Since then it really feels like he's just trying to complete a contract and get a pay check.

    Great Action, light on plot

    I have been a fan of the Drizzt series for years, and have kept up with all of the books. Before reading this installment, I had been growing somewhat tired of the story lines. I was surprised by this book however.

    My main complaint is that the story seemed to pass very quickly. The main travels seem a bit directionless for much of the novel. Go to Luskan, get into a battle, go over here, get into a battle, then at the end they seem to remember the ploy of "Oh Hey, we don't like Sylora Salm, so they go to battle her and her evil forces. Just very jumpy with a quick conclusion.

    That may make it seem as if I did not like the book on the whole. But I will admit the action was great. The battles did keep me turning pages and I finished this book over the course of a week because I did have fun reading about the action. And the best part of all is Barabbus the Grey. Many fans guessed who he was quickly in the last book. His character is really the center of this novel. Much of his personality is revealed and his motives and desires are made known. This book touches on a bit of Drizzt past while taking the characters into a new future. At the end of this novel I find myself hoping the next novel in the series will take what was done well developing Barrabus, Drizzt, and Dahlia and keep it moving forward. I hope they add more than just revenge in the next book, but I am making the purchase for Barrabus and hoping to see more of him in the future!

    Thanks B&N!!

    So earlier I wrote a review on how the price of the nook book was higher then the hardcover, and by the next day the price dropped! Needless to say I'm insanely happy with the book because Salvatore is amazing, and also with B&N for listening (or just coincidence, either way its awesome).
