It is not a bad book, but the last few titles in the Drizzt campaign have been lackluster, including this one for me. The main problem is the lack of growth in the series. While events happen that should change things everything eventually remains the same. Wulfgar and Bruenor should rightfully be dead at this point( or in Wulfgar's case he should be busy raising a kid instead of out gratuitously adventuring), and Drizzt should have had the courage to either love Catti brie as he should or give a definate no to it so she can move on. He may be long lived, she is not.
Instead we have a repetitive plot, where things happen but in the end nothing changes much. Everyone is still there, constantly dwelling on their problems that they seem to have had have since the very beginning, and Drizzt himself has developed a bad case of righteousness without doubt. This may be comforting, but I lost my ability to be surrpised by the characters. I also feel they won't die thus my excitement when they get to a fight is diminished. 10 orcs attack, 10 orcs die. Sure there is some flashy footwork, but we have seen it all before.
Also, Drizzt needs to be fighting more than just orcs, ogres, etc etc. He used to face off with dragons, demons, deadly swordsmen, and high end wizards. That has definately tapered off of late, and that has also dampened my interest as well.
I am hoping that the 3rd book actually changes some things and causes growth. It looks like Savatore is setting up a new love for Drizzt, but we will have to wait and see.
