Neverwinter Saga Book 3 - Charon's Claw
I was really excited for the 3rd book. There were a lot of ways the story could go after the previous book so I dove right in. It started out by getting back into what made R.A Salvatore famous: the drow. There was plenty of Underdark intrigue to be had, including Gromph Baenre - probably my favorite mage in the Forgotten Realms books - and I was kind of bummed when the story left the drow and turned back to Neverwinter. I'll be honest; I don't care how the town of Neverwinter organizes its militia and guards. If they can't man up enough to drive out the Netherese then I don't really care. The story chugged along rather predictably with Drizzt and crew going after the Herzgo Alegni to get Charon's Claw back but I never really felt connected to the story. The real high points were checking back in on the drow caravan to Gauntlgrym. I wasn't overly wild about the whole SpellSpinner thing but that is likely because I don't follow Dungeons and Dragons anymore and I'm not up to speed on the latest editions. I also prefer my driders and drow outrageously evil and unpredictable and these felt watered down. Sure they were evil, but not chaotic evil the way Lady Lloth prefers.

My biggest complaint about the book is the sheer number of open plot lines that were started and completely ignored. There were so many unanswered plot lines at the end of this book that I planned to write a review about it last year, simply so I could try and wrap my mind around it. It was so out of character for R.A. Salvatore and so strange for his style that I was ready to write it off as an unfortunate deadline issue or really crappy editing. An old rule in gaming is that "you don't describe the window if you want the group to use the door".

This third installment of the Neverwinter saga unravels the story of Dhalia and A. Entreri and give resolution with their conflict with Alegni that has been exposed in the last two previous books. The book is a great read, very dynamic, with lots of fighting action and LOTS of interaction and backside plots between and simultaneously in the different fractions and parties involved. To all interested in the new events shaping Faerun THIS BOOK IS A MUST READ, Faerun has become a very dark place: The Shadovar, Thay, The Abolegtic Sovernigty, demons, and dark elves expanding!! Our trio of rougues Dhalia, Drizzt and Entreri re-shape their associations and open up new possibilities, new adventures. This book NEEDS to be read in succession of the other two (too much going on and back plots come to live). R.A Salvatore do lots of character development in this book and add more dark elves that add a lot of chaos. Only reason I don't give 5 stars is because in previous novels has been a lot going on with Jarlaxle and hinting great things to come and we are again kept waiting! Till next book I guess...Enjoy.

Bringing conclusion to the primary story arc from Neverwinter and opening new doors. Exciting action as typical of Salvatore and Drizzt questioning he role in a new way make for an excellent new Drizzt adventure. Also good to see some Drow house intrigue brought back, and the 4 or 5 threads woven into this story set great hooks in the forthcoming books. If you like Salvatore he continues his strong run of recent Drizzt stories here.

I felt the book was 2/3 about fight choreography and only 1/3 of it had a story in it. Mind you, I like Salvatore's skill in depicting a fight, but it felt it a bit too much. I found myself scanning through pages and pages of sword/dagger/staff fighting to see what came next in the story.

It felt like the long and complicated fight choreography are there as fluff to add more pages to the books, more books to the series and increase sales. To each is own I guess.

Some legendary fantasy series become a drudgery from more than half of each volume reconstituting the past events and relationships. Not so with Charon's Claw. Salvatore's Drizzt character is immune to age, by virtue of drow elven heritage. Like a dungeons and dragons character, he is vastly more powerful and facing "higher level" opponents, yet this is not the true magic of Drizzt. The inner life of Drizzt Do'Urden is a fertile depth of writing that brings the reader into the personal motivations of the characters, evil and good. The villains are as likeable or moreso than the heroes. Some of the heroes have a mixed moral stance compared to Drizzt's pure optimism. Salvatore's rhythm and layering of characters and events builds and releases the level of engagement and suspense, humor and tragedy, magical and mundane in a humble yet epic style. Could not put it down, although I tried my best to ration and savor each chapter. Looking forward to a reread, once the vivid impressions of this exciting adventure begin to fade in anticipation of the NEXT ONE!
AWESOME NEW DROW CHARACTERS!!

I am a huge fan of R.A Salvatore and the Drizzt series. I have read every book and just finished Neverwinter 3 Charon's Claw. I have to admit though that I was disappointed with this book. It dragged on at many parts and the conclusion was less then epic. Probably one of my least favorite of the Drizzt series thus far. Best chapter was probably the Epilogue because of the hints of whats to come. Knowing there will be at least one more book after this one allows me to forgive the not so epic ending but still, just did not feel like a solid Drizzt book. Worth reading? yes, but only because it continues on the story line, but feels like a filler more then anything.
