About the Author

He is the author of more than forty novels and more than a dozen New York Times best sellers, including The Two Swords, which debuted at or near the top of many best seller lists.

...
Where to start? The characters (this applies to all of his books) are a total joke. Drizzt is possibly the most idiotic, self-riteous, hypocritical jerk I've ever read about: He can't stand violence and evil and such, as is supported by his constant whiny self-praising journal entries, yet he never has any hesitation when slaughtering 50,000 orcs and goblins and such because they're evil and deserve to die... Sure, R.A. decided to give him a religion once, but the religion was too inconsistent with his actions, so he hardly ever mentions now. If he did, then he might run into problems with the opening scenes of this book, which feature Drizzt and company slaughtering an entire goblin settlement to steal their mithril, and managing to torture many of them in the process.
Of course you might like this book especially, because it features the diabolical villain Artemis Entreri, (or is that the next seven books?) who is necessary so that Drizzt can engage in battles with him that go on for fifty pages. Why R.A. named his villain after a Greek Goddess is anyone's guess. Anyway, the book is entirely combat no matter who's engaging in it, so the last fifty pages are more or less identical to the first fifty pages.
I've no idea why people like these books so much. I mean, I guess if you're a kid then it's understandable, but adults? Well, these are probably the same people that think Dragonball Z is the best anime ever, so what can you expect? Anyway, don't bother with this. If you like Forgotten Realms then Elaine Cinningham is probably your best bet. This just isn't worth it.

Format: Hardcover
The Legacy, the 7th book in The Legend of Drizzt (read in order, not by release date), takes the gang of Drizzt, Bruenor, Catti-Brie, Wulfgar and Regis back to Mithril Hall and facing Drizzt's kin, the drow, for the first time in the series. The remainder of Drizzt's house Do'Urden is out for vengance and attacking the dwarfs in their homebase is part of the plan.

Normally winners of almost every battle to date in the series, the team and the army of dwarves run up against a huge challenge in fighting the drow, as hardened warriors as the dwarves and much crueller. It is good to seem them challenged and even beaten in a skimish or two.

This book features the return of Artemis Entreri (did he ever really leave?), Drizzt's main enemy. Though their banter gets old (with Drizzt taking the high moral ground and Entreri the competitive) the fight scenes are well written as always.

Though disheartnening when it happens, the team finally loses its aura of invincibility as one of their members falls in battle (no name will be given, as I hate spoilers). This brings a bit more realism to the story, and hints at future strife for the team.

Not as good as the first three (Homeland, Sojurn, Exile) but well worth the read.

This is the best Drizzt book yet. After returning to Mithril Hall the companions get little time to rest and prepare for Wulfgar and Cattie-Brie's wedding when the dark elves come hunting their long lost brother. We see the way the dark elves take to battle and fighting outside our small perception given by Drizzt. This book is astounding in the methods of battle and fighting. I still don't understand how Salvatore continues to write great fighting scenes. The war against the drow begins in this book and continues through "the Legacy of the Drow" series.
With the reuniting of old friends, the introduction of new friends, and the plotting of old enemies with clever plans, this book deserves all five stars just because of these elements and a pace that does not slow down until the last few pages. In fact, this book all takes place in less than a day. This book also has unforgivable sad moments that only give credit to the author for making his characters more realistic, however sad that conclusion brings. I will never forgive Salvatore for the way this book ends, but that only gives tribute to how much passion he can deliver in simple text.
Let the swordplay dazzle you and the enemy scare you, but whatever you do, don't stop reading this book.

Definitely GREAT Fantasy epics and my personal favorites, The Dark Elf Trilogy-Homeland, Exile, and Sojourn, as well as The Icewind Dale Trilogy- The Crystal Shard, Streams of Silver, and The Halfling's Gem bring to life the story of the good hearted dark elf ranger Drizzt Do'Urden and his adventures in the magical World of Faerun. Legacy, Starless Nights, Siege of Darkness and Passage to Dawn are the continuation of these adventures in a way that you keep coming back for more and more and more... The books are all so incredibly well written that the reader feels that they have been transported to another universe and are actually present among the characters, seeing what they see, feeling what they feel, sensing what they sense. RA Salvatore has truly outdone himself and has presented us with a masterpiece of literature the likes of which we have seen only in JRR Tolkien's work and in authors Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman's Dragonlance Chronicles and Legends trilogies. Duty, honor, bravery, magic, and swordfights are all about. One should seriously start thinking about maybe turning them into movies...
