5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a FRESH concept, Aug. 27 2001
Personally, I felt this book was an outstanding piece. I beleive that it does Salvatore good to step away from "Drizzt and Co" and focus on some of his under-developed characters. In Spine of the World, we saw Wulfgar..an annoying drunk who dragged us through 200 pages of boring and unending drinking and personal turmoil. A character who really needed no development and who probably was better off staying dead. in Servant of the Shard, we see two familiar characters who are largly underdeveloped, both of which undergoing major psychological and personal changes, and we learn lots from them. Throw in a very well written and thought out story line and the result is one of the greatest works of RA Salvatore. I would reccommend this book to anyone who loves Drizzt, it is indeed a step above the spine of the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soujourn is an unforgettable read, April 6 2001
This book really puts Drizzt's struggles on the surface of Toril to life. It is the story of how Drizzt becomes a ranger, it introduces his legendary ranger mentor Montolio, and finally it sheds light on how a Drow Elf is looked upon to the rest of the world. Drizzt Do' Urden is possibly the greatest character in fantasy literature and this book was an outstanding read.
