Summary

One dark elf. Two enchanted blades. One unknown enemy. And a horde of invaders.

When a blood-thirsty banc of orcs, led by an as-yet-unseen enemy, comes rampaging out of the Spine of the World, it lays waste to everything in its path. Dark elf ranger Drizzt Do'Urden and his most trusted friends find themselves in the path of destruction. As blades slash and feet trample, even the heroes may not survive a desperate stand.

Wonderfully written and performed.

What did you love best about The Thousand Orcs?

Quickly paced and moves right along, pulling the listener by the ear. I'd never read nor listened to RA Savatore's works before but now I have a pile of stories to get acquainted with all these wonderful characters. References to past events do not muddle the story line and are used to flesh out the intertwined development of the characters and plot. I do recommend this series. I'm getting the rest of this trilogy today!

The beginning of the end for Mithral Hall

I recently picked up a book by R. A. Salvatore after years of not reading it. I read the Sundering book one and decided to go back to learn what happened to set the stage for that series. Here we find the trio joined by an old friend to see the Bruenor off to be king of Mithral Hall. With many surprises along the way and a tower being dropped on someone’s head this story sets the stage for the rest of series. This story is really intricate while leaving a lot of openings for follow on stories.

Engineering Please

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The story is interesting as are all of the Drizzt stories but whoever engineered/produced/edited it never listened to it in a car. The narrator talks too quietly in between voicing a characters. I find myself constantly playing with the volume to hear the narration then turning it down when the character's voice blares out their lines. This is not to bad mouth the performance. I'm sure it was worthwhile, what I could hear of it.

Was The Thousand Orcs worth the listening time?

Yes

A great epic trilogy!

This trilogy is the one that reminds me the more of Tolkien`s The hobbit ,i really like the great battles and fortresses.There are a lot of new interesting characters and brave dwarves,the narrator did a great job.My favorite trilogy after Homeland,exile and sojourn! (montolio was a great character). At last in audiobook,thanks audible.

The companions are back!

After a trilogy about Entreri and Jarlaxle it is good to see the companions of the hall back and on the road to crown Mithril Hall's 10th king (previously 8th king) again.

There are stirrings of war from a smart orc and betrayal by Mirabar, a city not happy to be second best since Mithril Hall reopened.

The ending is sad and exciting. If you have read The Menzoberranzan Trilogy the cliffhanger is even more meaningful as Drizzt has to call upon abilities not used in decades to become the Lone Drow again.
