Summary

Gods walk the Realms!

Rising up from the black depths of the Underdark, the drow once more meet the dwarves of Mithral Hall. Bruenor Battlehammer, with Drizzt at his side, won't go down without a fight - but they'll have to fight without Wulfgar or Catti-brie at their sides.

Get Ready for War

Like any Drizzt tale, this one is full of great fights and a cast of familiar characters. However, this time the adventure comes to Mithril Hall. Performance was on par, story was on par, but something in the writing was lacking that as a reader I'd come to expect from R.A.. This is war! At Mithril Hall! I should have been on the edge of my seat and unable to put this book down, however, be it skewed timing of the plot weaving or desensitization to the wonder of it all... I personally found it difficult to get pulled into the story for the long haul.

Finally meet Loth in person

There’s a bit of a different twist to this ninth book in the Legend of Drizzt series. In the first half of the story, it seems there is some kind of conflict going on among the various deities of Drizzt’s universe. We wouldn’t know about this conflict, later to be known as the Troubles or the Time of Trouble, except for two things. One is that we finally actually see Loth, the Spider Goddess when she goes to the lower plane to seek the help of Ertu, the demon who craves the Crystal Shard, while she is occupied elsewhere. The second is that magic is disrupted.

The disruption of magic gives some funny results. Sometimes magic works normally; sometimes it doesn’t work at all; sometimes it only partly works. The partial results can be laugh-out-loud funny, but given that another war between Menzoberrenzon and Mithral Hall is brewing, the uncertainty is more than annoying. In Menzoberrenzon the failure of magic fuels an attempt to rearrange the power structure of the city. In Mithral Hall, it disrupts the preparations for the defense of the dwarven stronghold.

The second half of the book details the war between Menzoberrenzon and the dwarves of Mithral Hall. Many of the other people of the land join Mithral Hall’s dwarves in the battle, but for a long time, it looks as if that will not be enough. Can Drizzt, Cattie-Brie, and Bruenor, hunting in the deep tunnels below find the head of the invasion before it is too late?

Best book in the series so far.

I just absolutely love Matron Baenre. The climax of this book is perhaps the most vivid memory that i think about when i think about the Legend of Drizzt

cotton mouth v.a. great story

absolutely love the story. only downside is the v.a sounds like his mouth is full of spit or cotton balls. It is a very fuzzy and thick sound which makes most of his syllables hard to hear. additionally he has a habit of getting incredibly quiet and following that by being incredibly loud which makes listening to him while driving a pain in the butt. I wish he would have equalised the volume on the actual recording so you didn't have to adjust it while listening to it

One of the best books in the Drizzt Legend.

This book, as all of the books for Drizzt, should need little praise, for the collected works speak so well for themselves. However, the narration for this particular book was fantastic and really stood out, making the enjoyment of rereading or relistening to this book one I look forward to for many decades to come.
