There are a couple of problems I have with this book, but nothing I'd skip reading it over. For instance, I mentioned in my review of the previous book that I don't like what Drizzt has become. If you're reading this review, then I don't think it'll be a spoiler, but Drizzt isn't really acting like a good person anymore. I know they gave reasons as to why. He's lost people and runs into grey areas instead of clearly seeing black-and-white and being able to do something about it, but I don't like how he's becoming more callous and acting more like Artemis Entreri did.
The other thing I didn't care for was the predictability that was in this book. There was plenty of stuff that I didn't see coming, so it was enjoyable to read, but some of it was so predictable. I'm not going to spoil anything, but if you've read it, I think you'll guess what I'm alluding to. There were two really big ones that I saw coming from a mile away. One is that we finally get confirmation of the true identity of a certain character that any of us should have recognized. I'm not sure why the author even bothered disguising said character. The second is a character you'll meet called 'Effron'. I figured out who he was and where he'll probably fit in the story about 3 seconds after meeting him. You don't find out by the end of the second book. I'm fixing to start the 3rd book, 'Charon's Claw', so maybe it'll be confirmed there.
Either way, this is still a solid book and I recommend it to fantasy and Drizzt fans alike.
Neverwinter is a good book. It is a major step for Drizzt. Now that he is free of his friends, and dealing in a world that is descending deeper in to chaos Drizzt needs more than ever to find something good to cling to. He will be hard pressed to find the goodness in Dahlia. She is constantly pushing him to let loose. The battle of ideas is Drizzt's idealism against Dahlia's pragmatic view. There is a lot of new thematic material appearing here. Drizzt is growing and being challenged. How will he cope with this new world and will he stand strong or give in to the ways of the world. All of that and so much more in this amazing fantasy novel. As always, lot of action and adventure in the Forgotten Realms.
I do like that Artemis is finally reintroduced. I do like the introduction of the little weasel, Effron. Though, I cannot wait to read about him being killed, along with Dahlia. I do like that Sylora Salm is killed. I hope.
I had to force myself to finish this book, and dread I'll have to do the same for the next two. I was hoping to learn more about Neverwinter, but the city is only a sideline to the plot. Which is okay I guess. But I expected a book called Neverwinter to be somewhat about that city, Rather, this story takes place completely outside the city. All we know is that some guy named Grinch (another poor name) accepts whomever seems strong to abide wit his Neverwinter citizens. The truth should be that Neverwinter is a ruin, like Pompeii. People should not even live there. But they do, for some reason, despite the complete destruction by a volcano!
Anyway, this book is okay. Read if you play any of the RPG action and want some kind of vague background.

This book starts out a little slower, to build the relationship between Drizzt and Dahlia. If you need any more confirmation to how much Drizzt has changed he is undertaking a revenge mission under no other pretences other than that. Which considering the evil of the people we are dealing with is not a bad thing. The trouble is that Drizzt is starting to see thing from Dahlia's point of view that there are not innocents left. In this book we do not see the introspective Drizzt as much. He is a creature of instinct just waiting to release his deadly hunter personality. Drizzt take allies he would have gladly killed (or maimed as he killed as a last resort or the heat of battle), in another lifetime. Including someone thought long dead, but the clues all pointed to him anyway. Another change in Drizzt is he takes Dahlia as his "lover" not wife, this is not lost on me of the older generation. The only thing that I do not like about this book is Dahlia. Not the character really but the fact that she seem to captured hundreds of years' worth of fighting skill within 10 years, putting her on par with Drizzt himself. Maybe this will explained in the next book also how she acquired her tri-staff.
Bit darker than any other before (and gets even darker at next book), but really good read. Some really good character surprises also, but any "veteran" reader, should have already guessed who...... (no spoiler hehe).
I find Neverwinter Saga really good. Better than the previous trilogy and as good as the Legacy trilogy I must say.
Just finished Charon's Claw last night, so getting even better :D
5 stars for another great book from RA Salvatore.
