Something akin to peace has come to the Underdark. The demon hordes have receded, and now the matron mothers argue over the fate of Drizzt Do'Urden. Even so, it becomes clear to one matriarch after another that while the renegade drow may come and go, Menzoberranzan, the City of Spiders, will crawl forever on.
And so Drizzt is free to return to his home on the surface once again. Scores are settled as lives are cut short, yet other lives move on. For the lone drow, there is only a single final quest: a search for peace, for family, for home - for the future.
Hero picks up where Maestro left off, in a sweeping climax to an epic tale.

Never saw that coming, but no spoilers. After being somewhat dissapointed with the ending of maestro, as it seemed to be hurried and lacked the usual detail one expects from Robert Salvatore.
All is forgiven, Hero is a fantastic book and the ending providing such expectation and hope that this will not be the last adventure for the companion's of the hall.
The possibilities opened in this book leave one salivating for the next installment.
Great story with plenty of action, adventure and magic the staple you come to expect from a D&D book written by R A Salvatore. Victor Bevine does a perfect job reading the Stories
"Greatest, most anticipated, cliffhanger...EVER!!! "
I love all of the books in this series. I just finished this book last night. My jaw dropped and my hands went over my mouth in the biggest surprise cliffhanger ever.
Absolutely phenomenal the best yet. The best fight sequences of all time This visit to Fearun will leave you stunned. WOW is all I can say.
What a great book. A little slow at first but the end is amazing. Victor nailed it again with the narrating.
"Wow... that was a ride!"
I am along time fan of R A Salvatore and his forgotten Realms books. This one is one of my favourites. It's a collection of just rewards and just deserves mixed with a collection of WTFs!
It closed so many loops but open up a whole new set leaving me both satisfied for the ending and anticipatory for what's next. Basically exactly what you want for a completion of a series.
I must say that I was losing faith in Salvatore ability to present a beginning a middle and a climatic arc in a single trilogy with his most recent series always seeming to open more questions then solve them. This was a total return to his earlier works with Drizzt and Co taking me back 20 years and the times I would not put down a book until read cover to cover in an all nighter. I have not been more satisfied with and ending in a long time.
this was an awesome read best yet as we can see there's going to be another one coming I can't wait
"Thank you! Simply dynamic!"
The best in the series since the beginning! Longtime fan and patient follower of the dark elf series. Nicely done and intertwined character development. I have watched these characters grow for a very, very long time. The happy ending leaves me nervous though, lol! Amazing storytelling!
"Superb way to wrap things up.Hopefully not the end"
Just finished this up, wow very well done including nearly everyone. I've heard rumors this could be the end or at least a long break for Drizzt. If this is the case what a send off.
"One of his Darkest and best"
Yes, it is gripping, emotional and satisfying.
Not really sure, this Drizzt book was quite different then the rest because of what was going on with Drizzt.
Jarlaxle I think is portrayed almost exactly how I have imagined him to be portrayed for years of reading.
I laughed for sure and there were a few times where tears definitely starting to form.
If you're a fan of the series and up to date, get this book. If you've never delved into The Legend of Drizzt, start the beginning. R.a. Only improves with each book until the series has become legendary.
"another wonderful book by a great writer"
once again I will find myself reading the whole series starting again at the halflings gem
"Monks & Druids FTW"
With 'Hero' we are presented with a great and somewhat strange tale of absolute lowpoints eventually being replaced by a glorious highpoint.
All while showing of why Druids and Monks are the best D&D-classes ever!
"I don't need a horse..."
A statement for the ages!
