Book Description

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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars "Battle after battle and I love it" Drittz 16 Oct. 2012
    Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
    I would have like to give this book 4 1/2 stars but it does deserve a round up rather then a round down. Salvatore continues the evolution of Drittz and the Realms themselves. I think have the first 3 chapters of this book should have been at the end of The Ghost King (Transitions) that would have made the book so much better and would have rounded off the last trilogy nicely.

    It is 10 year since the "death" of Catti-brie and Regis. Even King Obould has pass away. The Fate of Wulfgar is uncertain but by human life spans he is either dead or dying. Drittz and King Bruenor are still feel the pain of their passing (except Obould who they just wish they got to Kill). They reaise that this is doing neither of them any good so they come up with a plan to allow them on their adventuring way Bruenor see nothing holding him back decides to restart his quest for Gauntlgrym the legondary original home of the dawafs. .

    The book fast forwards 45 years following leads for this quest. In think book we see a colder, more moody, less patient and friendly Drizzt. When he first came to the surface he was looking for acceptance and tried to earn it through his deeds, now he has stopped looking at the big picture, the world had grown darker and Drizzt's lust for combat is unassailable. He wonders if it his nature or his heritage that has filled him with such battle lust. In times past during combat Drittz slipped in to the Hunter personality, of pure focus and instant during combat. This personality is starting to assess its self instead of his everyday personality. This version of Drizzt is more wild almost untamed and raw.

    5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Drizzt novels 3 Nov. 2011
    By Shoakin
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    I read my last Novel around Drizzt and the others about 5 years ago and wanted to see if R.A. Salvatore still is something for me. I've finished the book within 3 days, the more I read it the more I've enjoyed it. Whoever likes books around Drizzt and Bruenor, but also around Jarlaxle and Athrogate must have this book.

    It starts very nice, reminding you on events past, but as most of the story plays around 50 years after the other books, one does not necessary need to have read them. The more one reads the book, the more one is pulled into it. Reaching an end that can rival the best of Salvatore's novel, you just want to have the next in the series.

    A full suggestion from my side!

    3.0 out of 5 stars Decades pass in the life of Drizzt 8 Feb. 2011
    While I had read a few R.A. Salvatore books about the Dark Elf champion Drizzt Do'Urden a few years ago, I didn't really start reading them as they came out until the "Transitions" series, where Salvatore started making huge changes to the mythos. I had thought the major changes were done with at the end of "Transitions," but I was very wrong. Salvatore's new book, Gauntlgrym, continues the frenetic pace of change even as Salvatore starts to take it slower in the story department. While the pacing in the book is a bit off and some of the plot twists are presented like a pig on a platter before they're actually revealed, Gauntlgrym gets the "Neverwinter" series off to a rip-roaring start.

    Decades have passed since two of Drizzt's longtime companions (one of whom was also his wife) crossed into Death's realm, and both he and the Dwarf King Bruenor Battlehammer are growing restless. Bruenor has decided to give up the throne and go on a quest to find the fabled Dwarven kingdom of Gauntlgrym with his old friend Drizzt by his side. Elves and Dwarves being very long-lived, they no longer feel the lust for life that marked their younger years, the passage of old friends taking a great toll on them. But other forces are at work, also looking for Gauntlgrym and the natural force that inhabits it. Will Bruenor and Drizzt find it before the evil is unleashed? And will Drizzt continue to lose himself in battle lust, no longer caring what happens to him after the long, lonely years he's spent?

    Gauntlgrym is a typical R.A. Salvatore Forgotten Realms novel: full of action and fighting, with some decent character work, though some other characters are too broad for my taste - namely the villains.

    3.0 out of 5 stars The story is nice and easy to follow 12 Jan. 2015
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This is the first Forgotten Realms novel I've read in about 15 years. I used to ridicule them as 'cowboy' books and nothing has changed since my initial summary. The story is nice and easy to follow, however I am embarrassed by the author's lack of thought and attention to detail about the minor details of everyday life in the tale which immediately the reader and make you lose immersion. It's little things like mead having a frothy head, mead is honey wine, it doesn't froth. Also dwarves, the worlds greatest miners using logs on crackling fires, in a hall in the mountains where wood would probably be scarce, when they probably have an abundance of coal. It's these little details which are supposed to create a romantic picture, but the mistakes in the detail ruin the novel. Don't expect to be getting a word of classic fiction when you read this, use it as a resource for your DnD campaigns, or as a replacement for your Mills and Boon cowboy book though.
