Drizzt Do'Urden, hero of the "Dark Elf" trilogy, finds the peace and prosperity of Mithril Hall shattered when his old enemies arrive to exact their revenge. Reprint. 200,000 first printing.
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.
The Dark Elf Trilogy was probably the best trilogy I ever read, with Homeland and Exile both being 5 star books. Read more
