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.

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.

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

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!

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 :)

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.

Been a big fan of the series for a long time, and while this wasn't the best of the series it's a fine addition
