4.0 out of 5 stars It all begins again, 17 Mar 2014

Overall I liked this book. There are parts that I found boring like the parts in Menzoberranza. Mainly because of the repetition that kept happening. This was mainly the same things had to be repeated to different characters over and over again. The Drow are the most treacherous and manipulative race and it is so interwoven into their Menzoberranzan society it is hard to keep up with everything but this does not mean that we need a recap every time the book goes to Menzoberranza. That was my only gripe with the book. I know why this was done it was sowing the seed for the future. The Salvatore really excels is the battle scenes. They are fast paced and brutal. I have only come across a few writers how understand the intricacies of combat, and manage to bring them alive on the page. The Blocks the strikes and most of all the positioning of the characters. There are a couple of silly mistakes though develop wolverine style healing factors eg facing down 2 Drow with a broken leg and being starved for days, and still coming out on top before needing a healing potion.

The Story. The Companions of the hall have been reborn and come together for the purpose that of saving Drizzt on the appointed day and place. What do they do next? Bruenor Battlehammer sees this as an opportunity to correct wrongs he feels he committed in their last life. Wulfgar simply want to enjoy the adventure. Cattie-brie has been enhanced since her rebirth with Devine wisdom and power plus one and a half decades of sorcery training and experience. Regis is the most change. He made it his mission that in his second life he would be on equal footing with his friends when it came to battle. For the past 2 decades he has dedicated his life to developing his own fighting style and skills that would be useful. Cattie-brie is the sorceress of the group; Regis would be the (swashbuckling) scientist.

There is also the question of Drizzt's "replacement" companions. Even after 18 year they were the last ones to be seen with Drizzt and his enemies have long memories and even longer lifespans. The significance is explained of Drizzt's rejection which goes far beyond his physical fight with Dahlia Sin'felle. This has once again angered Lady Loth, last time this happened the whole of Menzoberranza was mobilised. This could be very dangerous for the replacement despite leaving Drizzt behind.

Unaware of all the other plotting happening around them the Companions of the Hall have decided to make Gauntlgrym their first quest to see if they can help an old friend out of his curse. They need to make a couple of stops along the way to gather supplies from old allies and rekindle old alliances. This book sets the stage for a great action long saga. The revelations keep coming straight to the last page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to his best!, 21 Sep 2014

This review is from: Night of the Hunter: Companions Codex, I (Kindle Edition)
Bob delivers a story that harkens back to the good old days of Drizzt and the companions. You can tell that he is much happier writing in 5th edition. Gone is the angst of 4th edition, replaced with a fast paced story that Bob tells with relish. The prevous book (The Companions) set the stage and brought the old characters back. This book gives us fans what we have long waited for.
This is the first Salvatore book that I have thoroughly enjoyed for years.

I have read every Drizzt book and indeed Forgotten Realm novels. The Drizzt series hasn't attainted the high's of the first 6 or so novels. Now R A Salvatore is back to his best. Truly a superb read!

If you have read all the Drizzt books to date this book is sort of like getting into a favoured pair of slippers. You feel at hoe and completely comfortable with the characters and events taking place. The set up for the following books looks good as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 24 Nov 2014

This review is from: Night of the Hunter: Companions Codex, I (Kindle Edition)
A pity that the new iteration of the D&D franchise necessitated the revision of the timeline, but as always, Salvatore has produced another exemplary novel. The other authors, bar few, have not managed the transition as well. Hopefully they learn from his success and come up to mark.

I've read most of Bobs books, and I think he's glad to be out of 4e. This is a great page turner and the 'new' characters wonderful.
