Overview

In the final book of the #4 New York Times best-selling Neverwinter Saga, Drizzt Do’Urden navigates a winding path littered with secrets and lies. Tangled up in his companion Dahlia’s dark secrets, the ties that once held her close to Drizzt threaten to tear as her bonds to his former foe, Artemis Entreri, continue to grow. Meanwhile, in the caverns of Gauntlgrym, the drow Tiago Baenre enlists the help of Bregan D’aerthe in his quest to destroy Drizzt. While making promises they may not keep, the agents of the elite drow mercenary group hide plans of their own. Determined to stand for what’s right in the Realms once again, Drizzt forges a new road north—toward Icewind Dale. Will his new companions follow? Can he fight the darkness alone? Either way, he knows now where he’s headed—back to the only place that’s ever felt like home.  
 
 
Praise for the Neverwinter Saga:

“Absolutely profound.” —Paul Goat Allen, BarnesandNoble.com

“Masterfully written, thrillingly unpredictable, and everything a Drizzt Do’Urden fan could
hope for. You’ll be hanging on the words till the very end . . . and then begging for more.”
— GamesFiends.com

 
“Emotional, respectful of its characters, intelligently written and structured, and finally summons a sense of nostalgic sorrow throughout”–Fantasy Book Review on Gauntlgrym, Neverwinter Saga Book I
 
“Full of excitement. Salvatore has mastered the art of showing a beautiful fight scene, and he is at the top of his game in this one. We meet many characters with many different fighting styles, and Salvatore does a great job of distinguishing between them. He manages to take these scenes from so much more than just a fight scene, to an integral part of the story.”—The SFF Hub on Gauntlgrym, Neverwinter Saga Book I
 
“A quick read with some very satisfying fight scenes. It’s also deeply layered with emotional atmosphere” —California Literary Review on Gauntlgrym, Neverwinter Saga Book I

Starts off strong and has some cameo appearances of long time familiar characters but it feels rushed at the end like the page limit was coming up. As a reader I felt kind of empty when it was complete. Not a feeling you should have if you have read almost every book in this decades old series. - Gumbo's Dad

Out with a wimper. After 20 some  years, all that made Salvatore's characters strong is tossed aside and I was left feeling that he just pumped out another book to meet a deadline. And man, did Drizzt just go out with a wimper. Sad.

I am not sure if there was something going on politically between the author and the publisher, to which I love one and hate the other, but I felt strongly like the author was attempting to give the finger to his publisher due to all of their retarded changes. I applaud the author if this was the case. However the characters deserved soo much better.

*****No Spoilers***** Let me begin with this line so that you will better understand the last line. I have been a fan of R.A. Salvatore sine he introduced this character. I have read many of his books; this includes every book regarding Drizzt. I could go on and on about what a great writer he is, but since you are reading this review you already know that. That being said.... Ignore all of the one or two line reviews. They are either not longtime fans or complete idiots. If you think that you are in for another grand adventure, you are sorely mistaken. Without giving away any of the details, there are maybe four main story lines. By the time you finish this book; none will have been completed. You will be left wondering and wandering. Wandering around your room wondering where it all went wrong. If you are a true fan of Salvatore and wish to remain one, then I recommend that you do not read this book. I HAVE BEEN A FAN OF RA SALVATORE FOR ALL OF MY ADULT LIFE AND I WILL NEVER PURCHASE ANOTHER HIS BOOKS. This book ends that poorly.

If you have not read any of the previous NEverwinter saga books, it is recommended that you do. I would also recommend you pick up the DSW Comic series. With out giving too much away it will add insite into a few of the early chapters in the book. Drizzt sets out once more to do good in the world, this time however, with a band of adventurers who are more loose and ambiguous with their concepts of right and wrong. Drizzt acts as the moral compass for his friends which oft times has him acting very frustrated (bordering on whiney.) The World of the forgotten realms has changed. the lines of good and evil, right and wrong, law and chaos have blurred and Drizzt is really struggling with this. He wants to do the right thing but oft times his vision is narrowed and he looses touch with the reality around him. Once more, R A Salvatore has delivered a book of deep emotional depth, and a moral dilema for our hero. All the action and detailed battles are there and there are many. My only complaint is that this is a transition for Drizzt, and due to the moral ambiguity of his fellow travelers he spends way to much time debating right and wrong instead of just doing what needs done. It begs the question...Can doing a little evil lead to a greater good? That is the debate Drizzt struggles with. His companions...not so much.

His books seem to be getting worse. The story itself seemed to lack "heart" for lack of a better description. Also there was a lot of  different plots that seem to contribute little, if anything, to the main storyline. Also, the ending sucked. They wander off and fall asleep for eighteen years. Why? What was the point? Then after being attacked by his ex lover who apparently has not been redeemed in any way, despite signs to the contrary. He is whisked away, with no indication of how, to a rock I thought was destroyed in a previous book. Where he dies? Maybe? I found this book very disappointing and wish I had followed my initial impulse not to buy it. After all the last several books were not that great.

I finished reading this book and felt like something was lacking...it had a few good action/fighting sequences, but that was it. The long sleep was really odd to me, like Mr. Salvatore couldnt think of anything to write. What was the reason for the build up with Tiago Banre and Ertu characters if they just went away in less then a chapter? I was excited with all of the build up of these two characters facing the new "companions", only to be sorely dissapointed with a below average fight scene leave Tiago as the "hero" while the real hero is taking a long snooze? This is the first time i've been dissapointed with an R.A. Salvatore book! Hope the Companions series is much better.

What a terrible ending for one of the most beloved character in the genre. F you salvatore for taking a easy way out and ruining the series for so many of your fans. I for one am no longer a fan of your books. Retire please.

I'd swear someone else wrote this book. Falls short of what you expect from R A Salvatore. Especially when reading about Drizzt.

True to RA Salvatore and all that is Drizzt this novel is everything it should have been. Never dull and always leave you wondering what next you'll burn through the pages. True fans may want a box of cleanexs at hand for the conclusion.
