Publisher Description

From New York Times bestselling author R. A. Salvatore comes a new trilogy and adventure of Drizzt and fantasy’s beloved characters from Dungeons & Dragons’ Forgotten Realms.

After the settling dust of the demon uprising and two years of peace, rumblings from the Menzoberranzan drow have Jarlaxle nervous. Worried his allies may be pulled into a Civil War between the great Houses, he is eager to ensure Zaknafein is armed with weapons befitting his skill, including one in particular: Khazid’hea. A powerful artifact, the sword known as “Cutter” has started wars, corrupted its users, and spilled the blood of many, many people. Nonetheless—or maybe because of that—the rogue Jarlaxle and a small group of friends will go on an expedition looking for the weapon’s last wielder, Doum’wielle, in the freezing north, for she may be the key to unlocking the sword’s potential…and perhaps the key to preventing the bloodshed looming over the Underdark.

And as they explore the top of the world, Drizzt is on a journey of his own—both spiritual and physical. He wants to introduce his daughter Brie to Grandmaster Kane and the practices that have been so central to his beliefs. But, having only recently come back from true transcendence, the drow ranger is no longer sure what his beliefs mean anymore. He is on a path to determining the future, not just for his family, but perhaps the entire northlands of the Realms themselves.

Two different roads. On one, Jarlaxle and Zaknefein are on a quest to find pieces that could offer salvation to Menzoberranzan. On the other, Drizzt seeks answers that could offer salvation to not just his soul, but all souls.

And no matter the outcome of either journey, the Realms will never be the same again.

R.A. Salvatore never ceases to amaze me. With every novel he writes he just gets better. Limitless plot ideas and twists and turns throughout his stories….

Heart full to bursting.

I have been a fan for the past 16 years, rereading the series countless times and this is by far the most powerful story yet to me, the only time I cried harder from such an overwhelming joy was when my oldest daughter was born. You have been scraping at my heart over the years but with this my friend you have gashed, thank you.

For anyone that is unaware, the series was supposed to have ended with the last book. But Salvatore realized the inherent and fully unintended racist bias (in dungeons and dragons as a whole) that is the dark elf race being inherently evil, and to a lesser extent the orc and goblin races.
To that extent I think this book did a fantastic job at creating a setting that both showed the ability to "be good" regardless of, or even in spite of, their environment. To the lack of drizzt, I say I agree, it's sad to see so little of a beloved character, but at the same time his story has been told... We'll see plenty of him in the future I'm sure, but with characters like Zak, Catti, Entreri, and Jarlaxle, especially with the growth they've seen, this book is just as engaging as the first few that solely featured Drizzt. Honestly a 5/5 read, not counting the absolute excitement I feel for the rest of this trilogy. Kudos to Salvatore for killing it again, even if it's mainly setup. Only downside is how difficult it is to buy/find a full collection of the Drizzt books in an economical way. Only reason I've struggled to collect them....
