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.

I'm not a big fantasy reader, but I really enjoyed this book. Totally loved the characters. Drizzt is an awesome hero. Loved the inner turmoil as he tries to remain true to his noble beliefs despite being connected to a race of evil elves. The assassin Entreri was a great opponent. Totally obsessed with killing Drizzt. Very good job with Drizzt's fighting companions, who have to save him from being sacrificed by his evil sister to the spider queen. Cattie-brie is one self-assured, determined woman who's deadly with a bow. King Bruenor was great. Very tough, loyal dwarf. And Pwent the battlerager ruled!! The guy was nuts! Salvatore does an excellent job with his fight scenes. Very vivid and action packed. Also loved the fact the evil elf foot soldiers were all good fighters and not just cannon fodder as is usually the case with henchmen/bodyguards, etc. Gave Drizzt & company a lot of headaches and a lot of bruises. I like to see the good guys have a hard time in situations like this. Definately makes me want to read more in this series.

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.

With this book, Salvatore returns to one of his most popular creations: the drow ranger, Drizzt Do'Urden. THE LEGACY takes place several months after the end of THE ICEWIND DALE TRILOGY (THE CRYSTAL SHARD, STREAMS OF SILVER, and THE HALFING'S GEM). While it's not necessary, I highly recommend that you read that, as well as its prequel DARK ELF TRILOGY (HOMELAND, EXILE, and SOUJOURN), before you pick this book up. These two trilogies introduce the characters and places that THE LEGACY focuses on. If you haven't read them, you will still be able to enjoy the story, but you won't be able to pick up on a lot of the nuances and references to past history that makes the story so rich in detail.
Two things that Salvatore is brilliant at: characterization and battle scenes. Drizzt has got to be one of the most interesting, three dimensional characters in all of fantasy. He is passionate, caring, and introspective. It is a joy just to read his philosophizing on how he lives his life. The supporting characters are all individualized with their own quirks and passions. The interactions among them are at times a joy to read and, at other times, very frustrating, mainly because we come to care for them.
Salvatore's fight scenes are probably the best I've ever read. His description, though detailed, his very fast paced. Every time I read one, my heart races and my hands shake. It is pure brilliance and this book is no different, except for the fact that there are more battles in this book than in any two of the previous books.
If you are a Salvatore or a Drizzt fan, you're going to love this book. If you haven't read any of the Drizzt books I mentioned above, I suggest you start there so you can get the full appreciation for this one.
