R. A. Salvatore returns with one of fantasy's most beloved and enduring icons, the dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden, in an all-new trilogy full of swordplay, danger, and imaginative thrills,

Centuries ago, in the city of Menzoberranzan, the City of Spiders, the City of Drow, nestled deep in the unmerciful Underdark of Toril, a young weapon master earned a reputation far above his station or that of his poor house.

The greater nobles watched him, and one matron, in particular, decided to take him as her own. She connived with rival great houses to secure her prize, but that prize was caught for her by another, who came to quite enjoy the weapon master.

This was the beginning of the friendship between Zaknafein and Jarlaxle, and the coupling of Matron Malice and the weapon master who would sire Drizzt Do’Urden.

R. A. Salvatore reveals the Underdark anew through the eyes of Zaknafein and Jarlaxle—an introduction to the darkness that offers a fresh view of the opportunities to be found in the shadows and an intriguing prelude to the intriguing escapes that lie ahead in the modern-day Forgotten Realms. Here, a father and his son are reunited and embark on adventures that parallel the trials of centuries long past as the friends of old are joined by Drizzt, Hero of the North, trained by Grandmaster Kane in the ways of the monk.

But the scourge of the dangerous Lolth’s ambitions remain, and demons have been foisted on the unwitting of the surface. The resulting chaos and war will prove to be the greatest challenge for all three.


R.A. Salvatore is a bestselling author who released his first book in 1988, The Crystal Shard. He resides in Massachusetts with his wife, Diane, and their three dogs, Ivan, Pikel and Dexter.


REVIEW:
My hubby turned me onto this author, and this character Drizzt Do'urden years ago. I fell in love instantly! When I saw there was a newer series out starring you-know-who, I grabbed a copy right away!
So with all beginnings in a series, especially fantasies, there is a bit of a bore to the start. It's all about introducing, or re-introducing, characters to the reader. About a quarter of the way in it picks up and the fights scenes begin. (In a fantasy with dwarves and drow you definitely want fights.) This book will not disappoint you there. The rest of the book is battle after battle. 
It ended with a bit of a cliffhanger though. I'm not a fan of those. I hate waiting.
So not my favorite story, but I liked it enough to want to read the next one. I also recommend this series to any fantasy fans!


3/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
