Everybody's favorite introspective dark elf butt-kicker is back. And if you're one of the many fans of R.A. Salvatore's phenomenally popular twin-scimitar-swinger, you won't be disappointed. The Silent Blade is old-school Drizzt, an adventure that brings together the original gang: the lovely Cattie-brie, the plump and mischievous Regis, the gruff dwarven father-figure Bruenor, and the even more gruff barbarian hammer-hurler Wulfgar. Better yet, The Silent Blade brings back Drizzt's best worst nemesis, master assassin Artemis Entreri. Throw in the evil artifact Crenshinibon (a.k.a. the Crystal Shard, the namesake of the first Drizzt Do'Urden book), and you know you're in for a good time.
The plot follows three intertwined threads: Drizzt and Co.'s road trip to destroy Crenshinibon, Wulfgar's struggle to overcome the scars of his imprisonment at the claws of the demon Errtu, and Artemis Entreri's long-awaited return to the seamy streets of Calimport. The action is as lively as ever, with giants and goblins and thieves all getting their deserved lumps at the hands of our heroes, and of course Drizzt continues his meditations on life with a capital L. The book's highlight, though, comes when Do'Urden and Entreri cross paths once again, this time with surprising results. And the promise of that matchup should keep you flipping the pages quickly. --Paul Hughes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
About the Author
R.A. Salvatore has spent so many years winding himself into fantasy worlds that he's still trying to figure out how to unwind. He is the author of more than forty novels and more than a dozen New York Times best sellers, including The Two Swords, which debuted at or near the top of many best seller lists.

Also, Entreri was fantastically well-showcased. His soul-searching, perhaps on his way to finding the goodness in him that Drizzt was so certain existed, was interrupted by the exquisite Jarlaxle, who has always been a favorite character of mine. The epic proportions of the book were truly touched upon in this part.
I wonder who will fall first in the next book (for surely there must be one, if just to complete the trilogy)- Regis came dangerously-close in this one. Hmm, the only one of the crew to never have come so close is Catti-brie. Perhaps that will be the shocking ending to the Drizzt series (he is a great character and it is a great series, but too much of anything is never good). Then what? On to Cadderly or back to Elbryan Wyndon!
Again I must say that this book truly impressed me. Long live the king- Salvatore!
