It's not bad or boring, let me be clear on that. It's just that the action isn't as entertaining as it once was, the antagonists are too similar to past novels, and Bruenor, Catti-Bri, & even Drizzt have become uninteresting characters. Athrogates' past & characterization has apparently been left on the cutting room floor and he's just lumped in with Bruenors band of roudy drawves. Regis & Wolfgar are out on there own (to what I'm guessing will be it's own novel), and Jarlaxle is once-again left in the background to pull a deuce-ex-machina and save the day whenever the plot demands him to. Like always.
But really, Salvatore's most interesting character is again nowhere to be found - Artemis Entreri. Drizzt has become a bit of a bore to read. He's one of the absolute best swordsmen on his plane of existence, he sells books, and he has enough plot armor that any danger he's in isn't actually danger. You can guess the outcome of most altercations as soon as they start. The "cliffhanger" will definitely get your attention though.
not in the same league as the "heavies" like Tolkien, Moorcock, Tad Williams and George RR Martin.
This book I picked up because of so many glowing reviews, and because it featured the Drow so prominently (a society I find fascinating).
Well I was not dissapointed. The book reads like runaway freight train -- fast paced and not a dull moment. The Drow really are the
star attraction. I mean this is a race of creatures that hate themselves almost as much as they hate other races. So how does such a
society function? Through fear, intimidation, constant scheming and unholy alliances, that's how. It's engrossing stuff.
Can't wait to read the next in the series. If you are a fantasy lover, I cannot recommend this book enough.
