Finally one whole story from start to finish! Outstanding. In a not joking way, legitimately a very fun adventure that travels about the Realms and has a bunch of really nice character interaction.

However if I read the phrase 'lavender orbs' one more time I am going to eat my kindle. ( )

The perfect ending to a great series. The characters continue to endear themselves to me. I love them even more than I did when I first read The Crystal Shard.

This is a wonderfully satisfying book. ( )

Not my favorite Drizzt novel. I still enjoy the writing, I still enjoy the characters, I just thought that here, the author was forced to go in a direction he didn't want to go and it showed. Being a shared world novel, Salvatore does not control the overall direction of the world, in this case it didn't work out as well. ( )

The last Drizz't book I'll be reading.

While Salvatore can write a good battle scene, it seems that he writes like a crap author in every other situation. Which is odd, as I've read his Star Wars books, and while not terribly impressed, I didn't feel like a 10year old was writing the dialogue.

So farewell Mr Drizz't. May you find a luscious dark elf who also likes goodness, mainly so that Salvatore can stop yanking your chain with these terribly forced, awkward, cross-species wannabe romances... ( )

In many ways, this was a much quieter book that the others; despite this, I still found it compulsively readable. I didn't really realize just how quickly I was reading it until I noticed how few pages were left. Very good stuff. Definitely not literature, but a lot of fun nonetheless. ( )

Book description
Six years. Not so long in the lifespan of a drow. And yet--in counting the months, the weeks, the days, the hours--it seemed to me as if I had been away from Mithril Hall a hundred times that number. The place was another lifetime, another way of life, a mere stepping stone to...

To what? To where?

I ride the waves along the sword coast now, the wind and spray in my face. My ceiling is the rush of clouds and the canopy of stars, my floor, the creaking boards of a swift, well-weathered ship. Beyond that lies the azure blanket, flat and still, heaving and rolling, hissing in the rain and exploding under the fall of a breaching whale.

Is this, then, my home?
