As with all of Bob's books the action is, as usual, gripping and well written. The plot is good, but those with good memories, and who have read Bob's previous books might note the very odd continuity error. However this certainly doesn't detract from the book over all.
Three of the 'heroes of the hall' are found to be questioning their identity, their role in the world of the present, and their future in general.
Wulfgar is well on the mend emotionally after his high fall from grace caused by the torment he suffered at the hands of the demon Ertu. However, now he is questioning how he can walk the road of a warrior now that he has the responsibility of a wife and child to consider.
In the throes of a blossoming relationship with, Drizzt, Cattie-brie finds herself questioning her own mortality when balanced against the longevity of a Drow Elf. As with Wulfgar she questions what her future holds, be it on the road, or making a home somewhere to raise children, and how hard it would be if those children were half Drow.
Regis is also searching for his position in the world, and how he quite fits in amongst his powerful friends, which leads to quite a change in his general behaviour.
The overall general plot is hard to explain without giving away too much. There are a thousand Orcs in it, a few giants, and lots of battles, as she would expect with the title of the book.Read more ›
R. A. Salvatore is a great writer able to breathe life into his characters and write some great battle scenes. The book is never anything but entertaining and things escalate nicely and at a good pace right up until the end which leaves the story in an interesting situation that will keep you reading the series. Having said this the book does lack something that would make it truly great and much of the time it has the feel of an average R. A. Salvatore book, although that is still better than many other fantasy authors. As well as this some of the humour does fall a little flat and I feel the situation in Mirabar went on a little to long but other than that `The Thousand Orcs' was an entertaining book that should be enjoyed by any Drizzt fan.
i can honestly say i would be willing to wait for another year for it as it is that excellent.
Bob is again on his best form with the progression of the relationships of the companions of the hall, espacially the still budding love interest of Catti-brie and our favorite Paladin in Dark Elf's clothing!. Wulfgar is also coming on leaps and bounds to regain his rightful place as one of the key players in the group but is being closely chased by Regis of all people, read on.
The book captures the magic and mayhem of the earlier books with sweeping battles and evil baddies to keep the friends (and us) more than occupied, with the beginnings of a bigger plot line that will hopefully travel through the rest of the trilogy.
Many twists and sub-plots will keep you unable to put it down until it is finished, one of my dinners actually got cold before i realised that i had actually just read three chapters!
It is nice to see that some of the minor minions of Bruenor's realm have been padded out, Dagnabit being the mosrt prominent.
The book ending leaves us on one of the most cliff-hanging situations that Salvatore has ever done, may even be worth moving over to America to cut the waiting time downfor the next one.
In truth, one of the best to come from the hand of R.A. Salvatore and a MUST for any fan.
