I mean really, how does one even pronounce Drizzt?
The other dark elf names tend to have apostrophes in them and impossible consonant combinations.
Doing these as audio books must be difficult. And consider names such as King Schnicktick. How can one take him seriously with a name like this? A Call it 2. I presume that Salvatore is writing for a young audience, as the man-woman relationships are basic at best. Of course, Drizzt is a gentleman gentledrow? Nevertheless, they set out together at the end of this book, leading me for the first time to be actually intrigued as to where the author intends to take them in the next volume.
Readers may be intrigued to see how the dark elves of the Underdark are defeated by the noble alliance of friendly races and their own frailties. Enough of the known characters remain that there is potential for more dark elf mischief in the future. For the time being, I am glad that Salvatore plans to move the next volume into the daylight of his world. View 2 comments. Nov 01, Nico rated it it was amazing Shelves: physical-books-shelf. Maybe the best Drizzt book in the whole series until now. And I must say the best parts in these books are the short interludes by Drizzt.
Truly fantastically written! Nov 10, Fiver rated it it was ok. I've already commented on this series as a whole, but this book marks a turning point. By the time the reader has reached this book, the formula is set in stone. Drizzt fights and wins, then fights and wins again. The villain never dies, the supporting characters make brief quips, and nobody but nobody gets one single hint of development as a human character except for Drizzt, who stopped developing several books ago.
Appropriate for young children, and possibly as a guilty pleasure. Don't get m I've already commented on this series as a whole, but this book marks a turning point. Don't get me wrong: I have fond memories of cuddling up with this book and a mug of hot chocolate. It's just I wouldn't read it again. View all 7 comments. I need to take a break from this series for awhile.
It's just wearing me thin with the pointlessness of it all. This book seemed more like two books crammed into one. I really enjoyed the part where magic failed but there was no explanation why. The author also skimmed over things that sort of made me raise an eyebrow like "well that was an easy way out.
Like Catti-brie and her sword. It was just too easy with no explanation behind it. The second half of the book was a war a I need to take a break from this series for awhile. The second half of the book was a war and a pretty boring one at that. I just wasn't interested because I just didn't care. I really, really just hate the main characters in these books. The sad thing is I Love reading about the Drow. They are just so much more interesting and I think that's why I enjoyed the first half, because Drizzt was no where to be found and it mostly took place in the Drow city.
I find their politics interesting, their characters interesting. Especially that when they die they stay dead. If there was a book just about them then I would probably read it and enjoy it a lot more. It will be awhile before I pick these up again and finish the ones I have.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
They are slow and pointless to me and I don't want to read them anymore. I was psyched for the war between the Drow and the surface world. However, there's a few things that have become apparent to me: 1. Salvatore seems to have a lot of trouble with solving problems. He creates these massive problems like The Times of Trouble where gods were warring with each other and magic wasn't working properly. Spells would backfire or just fizzle, magical artifacts were inconsistent at best, and devastating at worst. And then the problem just Dantrag's demonic sword is picked up by Cattie-Brie and it messes with her head, encouraging her to go for more lethal hits when she's training with Drizzt, pulling at her consciousness until it possesses her completely Salvatore has no idea how to write women.
Cattie-Brie is still insufferable here. She's literally the only girl in a group of guy friends who constantly says "I hate drama" and then goes out of her way to create drama. Her fiance just died, but she's already getting ready to jump on Drizzt. But wait, she still loves Wulfgar, but wait, she likes Drizzt too, and- stop please stop. Every man in these books seems to dote on her.
It's exhausting. And the only other woman, Alustriel, who's supposed to be an amazingly intelligent and strong minded leader, does a a really good job of painting herself to be an incompetent dumbass. She struggles to lead her city this entire book, because she's actually NOT a strong-minded leader.
She just has a council sitting behind her pulling her strings. But at least she's still an accomplished mage- oh no, she picked up Elfhain's broken record syndrome, and then kamikazes into the middle of the battlefield never to seen or heard from again until the epilogue.
The Legend of Drizzt Series
The focus seems to be on fighting technique I agree has its place, but although I am rereading his books Too many fight scenes BORE me. I prefer properly placed fight scenes and more focus on the characters and story. He has some very good points that are now Drittz commentary between chapters and not as interwoven with the characters and story as before. The substance for me comes in small sporatic packages instead of interwoven in the storyline I am still going to continue to read this series until I can not take it any more.
But I prefer his earlier works best I would say that this was the best book in the Drizzt Do'Urden series so far. I liked all the intrigue and house-wars in Menzoberranzan, especially since Jarlaxle is my favorite character in Salvatore's books. Though in some places, it did feel like the author needed to amass pages, so there were scenes where the characters' thoughts basically ran in circles to add a paragraph here and there. On the other hand, some of the scenes and characters were hilarious, especially the Harpells! Harkle's e I would say that this was the best book in the Drizzt Do'Urden series so far.
Harkle's eyeballs popping up in the Mithral Hall left me in tears, I laughed so hard! Jul 03, Germancho rated it liked it Shelves: kindled. I found it a little uneven and disjointed, but the Time of Troubles part is pretty cool. There's nothing here to make this one stand out from the others, but it fits the bill if you're looking to spend time in the world and with the characters.
The big war with all the races was entertaining. Jun 02, Gwarlim added it. Love it. It kept me on the edge of madness every time I had to put the book down. I purposely took a very long hiatus from Drizzt and his exploits. It had gotten to where I was annoyed by the major players, and not at all intrigued by the plots.
The months that I had between picking up Drizzt books were like a much-needed healing salve, and that salve worked wonders. Once again, I was reminded why I like Salvatore's writing so much. He includes so much detail, but not so much that your eyes glaze over. He imparts wisdom and frailty into his characters, but not so much wisdom t I purposely took a very long hiatus from Drizzt and his exploits.
He imparts wisdom and frailty into his characters, but not so much wisdom that the reader groans with every line, and not so much frailty that the characters fold under the weight of their story.
If You Like Game of Thrones: The Legend of Drizzt
The mix of humor, humanity, loss, friendship and loyalty worked so well. One minute you're holding you're breath through a particularly savage battle scene, and the next you're caught up in the death of one you've come to know and like. Unexpected blips of humor streak through the fighting and the fear. You see the prideful, the boastful, and the reckless change in one quick chapter. And you come to realize that the one friendly character that you had previously hoped would be killed off isn't as annoying as you remembered him to be or maybe that's just me.
I'm once again drawn into Drizzt's world. I was pulled in by the cunning Lolth, and am now eager to know who Errtu's "prisoner" is, though I think I have an idea. I found myself, once again, laughing out loud at the Harpells, even though they had fewer antics than in previous books, and were way more handy than I would have thought they could be.
And I'm eager to know how the alliances that were forged will fare in future books, and how Menzoberranzan will look once the dust settles. View all 3 comments. Oct 03, P. The same was for me: you will miss the excited of seeing for the first appearance of a certain "black figurine" or after the cameo of certain characters you will simply wonder "why did he spend an entire chapter on this guy?
What was his part in the plot? I read the Neverwinter Series and enjoyed it. I read it and realized despite knowing much of the back story that I wanted to re-read the stories to better understand the Neverwinter series. Amazing finish to your adventures with our beloved drow, if you feel you can stop there Salvatore posted a suggested reading order for his Forgotten Realms stories in April Homecoming Archmage, Maestro, Hero.
Generations Timeless, Boundless.
Even if you find you like and want to read more, definitely stop before the Hunter's Blade trilogy. The editorial-forced-plot will scar your soul. I recently read the Legacy of the Drow series and, while there is a little bit that's interesting, it's mostly the same plot and the same character issues rehashed four times. Dark Mirror is already there. There's also a short story, Dark Mirror in the anthology Realms of Valor - I removed it from my list above because the question specifies "books about", but you might still find it interesting.
