Format: Paperback
After waiting with much anticipation for this book, I was not disappointed. Salvatore creates an intriguing deviation and his unique blend of battle action and saga will have you turning page after page. Salvatore's writing style can, at times, be a cold slap in the face and maybe even frustrating for some readers. But over all this trilogy is definatly positioning itself as his best work yet. Highly entertaining and recommended. Bring on "The Two Swords" !!!

The book was scheduled to arrive between February 1-11, and was delayed due to customs. My book came on February 16th, but the seller was really nice when I contacted them, and told me to keep them posted on arrival, and let them know if it didn't come in the next 7 days. If you live in Canada and are ordering, know that customs is really long with books, and can take an extra 2-3 weeks over the shipping date. My only complaint is that the bubble wrap was not the greatest, and I have a slightly damaged dust cover. If you are ordering through this company, ask them to add an extra layer or two of bubble wrap to the edges to protect it during shipping. Other than that, love the book, especially since it is in hard cover.

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
Book One of R.A. Salvatore's "The Hunter's Blade" trilogy, The Lone Drow is the story of Drizzi Do'Urden who is the bane of the orc hordes still ravaging the North. Cut off, alone, convinced that everything he ever valued has been destroyed and all that's left is to kill until there are no enemies left, the reader is carried along on an expertly crafted action/adventure fantasy tale that is replete with memorable characters, dire situations, vividly drawn backgrounds, and horrific battles. But the novice reader should be forewarned! Reading The Lone Drow will send you to seek out all of R. A. Salvatore's earlier books -- and leave you looking urgently toward the next installment of this thrilling fantasy series.

Starting with the Dark Elf Trilogy this drow's adventures really kept me good company for years. My all time favorite work of the author is the Dark Elf Trilogy and I read all the other adventures of Drizzt. Thousand Orc series however , have been sending alarm signals that Drizzt and Co. have finally come to an end. What was most interesting about Drizzt in the beginning was his inner reflection and diary-like musings. Unfortunately it grew old and boring and he became a whining self rightous character. The plot is more like a cheap soap opera: There is no plot at all. You can tell that many pages and dialogues and Drizzt's self reflection moments are just there to fill the pages.
It is time for bob Salvatore to pull the plug on this guy and create something else. This book is written mainly due to financial concerns of the author.
I agree with the previous posters recommendations. Storyline and characters need to mature.

I've been a fan of Salvatore for years now. The Ice, wind and Dale Trilogy and The Dark Elf Trilogy (Which is my all time favorite work by Salvatore) are great. His new Forgotten Realm trilogy should be forgotten it's self. Especially the Lone Drow. There's is no plot at all. Just one Battle scene after another. Its grow tiresome and absurd very quickly. No matter how many enemies Drizzt or his buddies fight they wont die or get hurt. There is no character development at all. The dialog between characters so childish sounding. I know Salvatore never has had deep plot-lines for his books but this book takes the cake for being poor.

What some people seem to forget is that this is not a 'Drizzt' book, but a 'Forgotten Realms' Book. Drizzt Do'Urden is a character from the world of Dungeons and Dragons, and in writing a story an author is more undertaking a single-handed campaign with characters that he serves as both player and DM to. So what if the fight scenes seem long-winded? Being a swordsman myself, I proudly say that at least they are accurate. Besides, would you more enjoy, "Orcs ran at Drizzt. He slashed at them. They went ker-splat all over some other orcs that were now rushing at him... etc". If you think of this less as a book and more as a horribly detailed account of a well thought-out campaign with fully rendered characters, you might find yourself enjoying it more (which is only for those who are not enjoying it already, mind you. If how you see it works, stick with it ;-). ). While this may not be Salvatore's most compelling work, he still holds high and far above your run-of-the-mill fantasy author.
