Starless Night is part of the continuing "Forgotten Realms" saga, which includes the author's best seller, The Legacy (Random Audio, 1992). Still shaken by the death of their comrade, Wolfgar, the companions, Regis, Brunor, Catibri, and Drizzt, mourn in their own ways. For Drizzt, however, sorrow turns to vengeance. Drizzt decides that he must return to the Underdark city of Menzoberranzan and see for himself that the drow do not again spread their evil on the surface world. Much like a fly who is caught in a spider's invisible web, Drizzt, too, finds himself entangled in events that he cannot control. Starless Night is good sword-and-sorcery fare and keeps a lively pace throughout. Narrator Simon Jones offers a solid performance that is occasionally marred by hokey sound effects. Those who are Dungeons and Dragons players will appreciate seeing the genre come to life. Recommended for "gamers" and listeners interested in fantasy.

I miss Bruenor.
However I loved seeing Catti-brie. Seriously if I ever play a D&D character that’s not Druid I would build something like her. I love her bow, seriously that thing is awesome.
This book is rather gloomy. Everyone is in mourning. Drizzt becomes very self centered and makes a stupid decision. Catti-brie responds well and off she goes. Though I do wish she would have treated Alustriel better. I feel like their relationship is weird and that I am missing something. Does Catti-brie love Drizzt more than just a friend. That would be very confusing considering Wulfgar, though he is dead now…
I want to know the Alustriel and Drizzt story. Also the deep gnomes and Drizzt story.
Entreri, I hope is a changed man. It shall be interesting to see how his character changes and if it does. One thing though, is he is a human. The older he gets the harder it will be to fight Drizzt. Where Drizzt is a dow and will live many years and is in his prime. The older Entreri gets the less changes he has to win.
I thoroughly enjoyed the character development of Jarlaxle, the mercenary drow, and it was great to see a small glimpse of strong Belwar again. My only problem with this series is that characters just won't stay dead once killed (or twice killed!), as Artemis Entreri shows up again. Mr. Salvatore keeps the readers guessing that Entreri and perhaps Jarlaxle are not as evil as they seem.
As with the three initial books in the series, the drow homeland is well described, as are the political machinations that keep the drow world in check.
Not as good as the first three (which are classics), but moves the character development forward and brings Jarlaxle, a very interesting character, to the fore.
It is amazing finally getting into the underground city of the drow (I have not yet read the "Homeland" books). The inner workings of the city are facinating and unlike anything I had ever imagined. They truely seem to be pure evil (or most of them at least). The political intrigue in this book is exceptional. It is nothing like the politics in a huge epic (like "Song of Ice and Fire") but still pretty good and facinating at face value for a such a small book and a vastly different target audience. This book never let me down and was quite fun and enjoyable to read. My only reservation about this book is that Breunor and Regis are not that involved in the story (they are definately not involved in the main story, and their side plot line is very slim). But Salvatore proves that he doesn't need all of the companions to make a great book, and also proves that he still has a lot of fire under him and some surprises still up his sleave.
As always, the battles are fierce and exciting. Also the assasin (one of my favorites) is back and "integrated" into the drow society. Very interesting watching the strong and powerful get pushed around.
Read this book - this sub series in the Drizzt series is my favorite so far and is filled with more action and adventures than the others I have read.

Characters are very real and have a life of their own. One of my favourite authors for sure along with Terry Brooks, Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson.Published 22 months ago by Kevin MacDonald

This is the 2nd book of the Legacy of Drow trilogy but the eighth book in the series. As with any trilogy the middle book is always the slowest but still an excellent book.Published on Feb. 21 2003
