Publisher's Summary

Drizzt joins Bruenor on his quest for the fabled dwarven kingdom of Gauntlgrym: ruins said to be rich with ancient treasure and arcane lore. But before they even get close, another drow and dwarf pair stumbles across it first: Jarlaxle and Athrogate. In their search for treasure and magic, Jarlaxle and Athrogate inadvertently set into motion a catastrophe that could spell disaster for the unsuspecting people of the city of Neverwinter - a catastrophe big enough to lure even the mercenary Jarlaxle into risking his own coin and skin to stop it.

Unfortunately, the more they uncover about the secret of Gauntlgrym, the more it looks like they can’t stop it on their own. They’ll need help, and from the last people they ever thought to fight alongside again: Drizzt and Bruenor.

    Story
    "An Immersive Fantasy Novel"

    This is my second Drizzt audio book I have listened to. The Neverwinter series is looking like it's going to be great adventure which pits Drizzt, against foes and evil plots, teamed up with old and new companions. Although the fact that Drizzt is well written character, should not put you off, if this is your first Forgotten Realms novel you'll find the narration excellent and full of suspense and action.

    The story unravels with Drizzt acting with compassion to his friends quests, rather than his own selfish goals. A true adventurer who is fun to follow and quirky role-model.

    The last novel I listened to was the first book of 'Transitions' called The Orc King and I didn't complete the last two books of 'Transitions' before moving to the 'Neverwinter' series. I had no problems with this, as R.A Salvatore wrote the beginning of 'Gauntlgrym' with a recap on the general plots by weaving it into this story. I can genuinely say I felt the larger adventure without being confused.

    Although I am a fan of Dungeons and Dragons, and high fantasy. I am sure if you wish to start listening to high fantasy audio books then Drizzt Do'Urdens adventures in the 'Neverwinter' series is a good a place to start than any other.

    The land of Faerun is based in the Forgotten Realms, and Neverwinter in the most North Western part of Faerun. But it is only a small part of Faerun, so expect character in the Dungeons & Dragons novels to come together from far away places each with their own agenda. Expect strange beasts, cunning enemies and amazing magical weapons. On a larger scale, you can expect wars between different races, gods that try to control the fate of mortals, and ancient primordial beings awoken from long slumbers.

    The great thing about the novels is that you can continue the adventures, make your own adventures, and your own characters if you wish by playing the Dungeons & Dragons game, and that game is continually supported with official events that might be organised in your local area.

    For example, this Wednesday I will be joining friends to play in an official adventure based around the fictional city of Neverwinter, with their own characters who will be using the rules from the game of Dungeons & Dragons.

    "It's like I'm actually there"

    R. A. Salvatore is an amazing author, he puts you in the world he has created with great story telling and amazingly detailed fight sequences. Victor Bevine has a way of reading that keeps you engaged with the story at all times and the voices he uses for the characters are close to how I heard them in my head reading to myself.

    "So-so narrator. Good book."

    I'm not a huge fan of this narrator but the book was great. Exactly what I've come to love and expect from Salvatore

    "Heartbreaking"

    May he rest in peace. A slow start but one of the most gripping, meaningful endings in recent memory of the series. 10/10 would cry again.

    "Confusing"

    The timeline was very difficult to follow, especially in the beginning. I didn't get into the book before well over half of it. Very confused of characters aswell. But the narrator was good.

    Story
    "The last few sentences."

    Not a bad story for RA Salvatore. His villains did seem pretty plain-brain as they did in the Canticle. They were not Drow-like or Methodical as Entrary. More like Obsessive Orcs. So, not to impressed with them. No great treasure was found, some made but still... Gauntlgrym held not so much wonder for me as it did for the Dwarves. I wasn't transported into the tale as in former books. All I can say is that some books, like this one, are transitioning the bigger plot. This book sets up the old group to be rejoined in the last few sentences.

    "Victor Bevine is back"

    This is as good a story as The Crystal Shard. I love that we have our old narrator back, and he does a phenomenal job of voicing all the characters.

    While the end of the story was a little predictable, it in no way detracts from the amazing battle and the epic conclusion to the book.

    This book left me wondering about how Drizzt ends up coming back from the frenzied depression he is in.
