This is great fantasy writing (nothing to scare Tolkein, but highly highly enjoyable). The best aspect of Salvatore's work is his combat scenes. He clearly knows what he's talking about, and you can almost see Drizzt's scimitars dancing and twirling as he squares off against an opponent. I can't think of another author who writes duels quite so well. Drizzt Do'Urden is Salvatore's greatest and best developed character, and the Dark Elf books are his story. Fans of sci-fi fantasy will not be disappointed, and Salvatore's contributions are the best tales set in the Forgotten Realms world.
Meet Drizzt do'Urden, a peculiar dark elf who has been granted a white soul, and the strength and capacity to uphold his positive ideals in a world where treachery is the code. See him grow up, finally understand the background and past experiences of the dark skinned ranger we all already loved in "The Cristal Shard".
Meet his father Zaknafein, the allmighty Master of Arms of the noble Shaezbernon house, capable of ripping out with a flash of his whip the tongue of a chanting drow priestess before she can lay whatever spell on him.
Geat characters, great story in the best fantasy books R.A. Salvatore ever wrote.
Remember: "Forgotten Realm" books will never get better than these 3, so read them slowly and with gusto.
After having the book in my possesion for several days, I decided to sit down and begin reading. 3 hours later, I decided that I had picked up one of the best books I had ever read. I quickly finished the book the following day.
I highly reccommend this book for anyone even slightly interested in the Fantasy genre of books. The detail of the dark elven society that Salvatore dishes out is simply stunning as well as the character detail he goes into with everyone in the book. Everything that I have come to know over the years about this genre was reinforced by this book and even more knowledge was tacked on. I have filed this book away in my bookshelf as part of my permanent collection that I plan to re-read on a rainy day. Definitely as good as it gets in literature.
