I will not provide a synopsis for this novel as it would only give away spoilers. This is a first in a series but it follows a previous saga.

This is my first R.A. Salvatore novel and I am mad at myself that it’s taken me this long. Needless to say, I was not familiar with the story line of Drizzt or any character relationships from the previous books.  I was worried that I would be horribly lost and missing some integral part of the plot.  That happened a little in the beginning but smoothed out not long after. The characters really made this a fun read.  There is this great chemistry between them and that chemistry is what kept me very involved in their stories.  I ran into a few slow spots along the way, but the action balanced it all out.  It was a great first impression of Mr. Salvatore’s work and I will be reading everything of his that I can get my hands on. I do recommend this one, especially to fans of the fantasy genre.
