The worst kinds of Mary Sue, to me, are the Bulletproof Sue and the Constantly Brooding Sue. Driz'zt is both. Ugh. ( )

The orcs are gathering in great numbers to try and take Mithrill Hall if not all the northland. Seperated from his friends he thinks to be dead, Drizzt embarks on a quest of vengence and slaughter. Back at Mithrill Hall Bruener lays near death while the rest fight on.

Being a R. A. Salvatore fan I may be biased but once again I feel he has done a wonderful job with this second book in the trilogy. A gripping tale with superb battles made it a very quick read since I could not put it down. ( )

Interesting, but not really as good as some of his other Drizzt novels - though better than some too! ( )

I really enjoyed this book. Recently I have been re-reading through the Drizzt books. At the time that I read this I was between Streams of Silver and The Halfling’s Gem. This book is quite different from the older books, but it was still very enjoyable. It took a while for the book to build up, but once it got going it was fantastic. I got tired of Drizzt being all mopey. The alter-ego of the Hunter wasn’t as strong as I was expecting. In Exile, the Hunter took over Drizzt’s life. He couldn’t turn it on and off as he pleased. In this one he used it to his gain, and then maybe felt bad afterwards. I was looking forward to that struggle with the Hunter taking control. The plot with Bruenor had been spoiled for me by reading a poorly written review, so I missed out on some of the suspense that should have been there. Still it was a great book. I liked the groove that you see Catti-Brie and Wulfgar falling into. Also, I like the twist introduced by the relationship between Drizzt and Innovindil. ( )

It took me a little while to get into this one, mainly because I initially had some difficulty relating to Drizzt's motivations. I got a better grasp on where he was coming from as the book progressed, though, and overall I enjoyed it. ( )
