The plot follows three intertwined threads: Drizzt and Co.'s road trip to destroy Crenshinibon, Wulfgar's struggle to overcome the scars of his imprisonment at the claws of the demon Errtu, and Artemis Entreri's long-awaited return to the seamy streets of Calimport. The action is as lively as ever, with giants and goblins and thieves all getting their deserved lumps at the hands of our heroes, and of course Drizzt continues his meditations on life with a capital L. The book's highlight, though, comes when Do'Urden and Entreri cross paths once again, this time with surprising results. And the promise of that matchup should keep you flipping the pages quickly. --Paul Hughes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book was excellent, and paved the road for many more to come (hoping, of course, that Mr. Salvatore has no intention of ending the series).
The ending was slightly confusing, since Entreri's burning need to face his arch-nemesis once and for all on fair ground is brought into play. The end of this fight seems a bit anticlimactic, however, unles it plays a larger role later. Jarlaxle communicates to Drizzt after the fight the Entreri will no longer bother him because Drizzt is believed to be dead.
The problem as I see it with this line is this: In a world where Drizzt Do'Urden has made such a far-reaching impression as to be accepted almost universally despite his drow heritage, news of his still being quite alive and well would not be long in reaching the ears of Artemis Entreri.
Future conflict? Perhaps, but how many more continually unresolved fights can there be between them?
As for Wulfgar, he always took far too much of the world upon his shoulders. His apparent descent into the world of evil is a fitting continuation for a man haunted by demons he has created for himself. These can be far more effective than the tortures of the Abyss...
I think that this was quite a bounce-back from that previous feeling I got from those books. I suddenly couldn't put the book down. Characters were more in depth, especially Wulfgar who is trying to recover from his torment he suffered at the hands of the demon Errtu, the plot was better and well planned out, and I thought that even some of the action was better.
I think that anyone who enjoyed any of R.A. Salvatore's earlier books would enjoy this book a whole lot, maybe even as much as those earlier books.
If you don't like the legacy series or not find it as enjoyable as the previous books, just read them because the "Paths of Darkness" series will make more sense and the stories will be ten times better.
The main plot, bringing the evil artifact Crenshinibon to the wizard Cadderly, did not seem to have high enough stakes to be overly compelling. As far as fantasy adventures go, it was pretty ho-hum. The writing was strong, and the characters interesting. The action was also pretty solid, although I think Drizzt and his crew dispatch their foes far too easily, and I think have been made to be such awesome fighters as to make them a bit less compelling as a result. Overall, this was a fun fantasy novel that didn’t really move the needle much. It was a fine novel but not one that I will likely remember.
