The Thousand Orcs is apart of The Hunter’s Blades Trilogy, which in itself is part of a long line of book by R. A. Salvatore.

Here is a Drizzt and company book that I enjoyed. Filled with action from almost the get-go. The past few books that I have read from Salvatore didn’t highlight Drizzt’s adventures and I found myself a little bored with them.

Thousand Orcs is setting up for a grander battle down the line and I am excited to read what happens next.

However, still not a fan of Pikel and Ivan. I feel that they take me away from the story that I am reading. ( )

I initially read this book between August 5 and September 16 of 2013. I managed to pick up books 2 and 3 from a yard sale and didn't have 1, so I borrowed 1 from the library and read it. I promptly got involved in other books and forgot about books 2 and 3 entirely until someone gifted me book 1. It's been long enough that I decided re-reading book 1 made sense before continuing on the others. I think I actually liked this book better on the second read. ( )

With the Heroes of Mithrall Hall back to together, they venture back towards Mithrall Hall where Bruenor is to be recrowned the King. But a deadly alliance between orcs and frost giants may put a snag in the adventurers plans.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. As always with R. A. Salvatore the fighting and swordplay are spectacular, and the advancement of all the lives of all my favorite charachters was fun. Could not put it down and looking forward to reading the next book in the trilogy. ( )

This is the start of a new Drizzt trilogy. In what is a familiar theme, Drizzt's adopted clan of dwarves is being attacked by a horde of orcs, led by giants. The attacks is being organized by a small group of drow masterminds. If you're an AD&D fan, this should sound very familiar, this plot isn't new. In his defense, since he writes for WOTC in their shared world, he may not have had any say in the base plot.
Salvatore does a great job, as usual, of making the dwarves everyone's favorite clan and introducing some dwarf politics. His battle scenes and the interactions of the main heroes are good, as always. ( )
