Summary

In the second book of the Companions Codex, the latest series in R.A. Salvatore’s New York Times best-selling saga of dark elf Drizzt Do’Urden, the orcs of Many Arrows decide to take advantage of the chaos wrought by the Sundering to reignite a blood feud first brought to life in the phenomenal best seller The Thousand Orcs.

If you were ever a fan of the Compainions of the Hall. Then know this, they have all of thier spunk back!

What did you like best about this story?

The fight sceens make me feel like I am there and a part of the fight. Regis has a backbone and is earning his keep. The best Part . . .Someone learns to have a little fun.

Which character – as performed by Victor Bevine – was your favorite?

Regis. Hands down

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

It's all about the support system.

Another impressive chapter for our heroes

Where does Rise of the King rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Another creative adventure bringing the companions of the hall back to save the realms again. Each new book becomes my new favorite and this one especially so. What would life be like to be reborn and retain all the knowledge from your past life?

Any additional comments?

This book Regis has really grown on me.
The biggest problem with reading another great story about Our dark elf hero is waiting for the next installment.

The best yet!

Let us not forget, all of these reviews are opinions, and opinions are like a$$holes, everyone has one! In my opinion, this is the best book since the original ice wind dale trilogy. Nuff said.
