  1. Anyone who s been reading Drizzt stories until now probably don t need any reviews to determine whether he keeps reading or not While I like the many contemplation moments in this book and feel despair and loss as a result of the first book, there s one thing that feels unrealistic and that s how powerful they are or how lucky they are Despite the fact that the heroes are heading into enemy territory, things seem to always go their way I just feel that a couple of the encounters could have been [...]


  2. I read the first 13 Drizzt books back to back, so I sometimes forget what happened in which specific book but I certainly enjoyed the ride The rating above reflects only the content.This book stood out for a different reasonThe cover is so absolutely atrocious it irked me every time I looked at it The whole Legacy series in this printing is bad, but this one takes the cake If you aren t familiar with the story, Drizzt is a young drow warrior In this depiction he looks like an ancient, caucasian [...]


  3. I m writing this as a thirty six year old male who only picked this book up because its horrible cover drew him in, and the two dollar used book price tag was just right.This is the first Drizzt book I ve ever read It s also chronologically the eighth book in the series That said, I know I missed out on a lot of character work and plot background which is regularly mentioned throughout this story There s stuff about past character deaths and quests, but I didn t feel that the lack of this backgr [...]


  4. It is a defeat of the spirit to learn that one s arrogance causes such loss and pain Pride invites you to soar to heights of personal triumph, but the wind is stronger at those heights and the footing, tentative Farther, then, is the fall Starless Night by R.A Salvatore, page 235.Rating4 stars.Book SeriesBook 8 of The Legend of Drizzt 34 books.My Thoughts First half was a little slow The reasons for why Drizzt was heading back to Menzoberranzan were explained and reexplained I get why the author [...]


  5. This Book was AMAZING The characters are a bit difficult to understand if you start the series on this book because they ve grown complex over the series, but Salvatore provides enough to have a simple understanding for the story and relations between characters I must say that my favorite has to be Drizzt himself, but you d have to read it for yourself to find out.


  6. Reeling from the loss of one of his dearest friends, the warrior dark elf Drizzt journeys back into the Underdark but can he survive the harsh environment after years of growing accustomed to life on the surface In pursuit of Drizzt are his loyal friends Cattie brie, the dwarven raised deceptively tough as nails human female, and Guenhwyvar the panther, 600 pounds of fur, teeth, and claws Meanwhile, the ever eccentric drow mercenary leader, Jarlaxle, and the human assassin now stuck in the city [...]


  7. I enjoyed this one Seeing the way our band of characters grieves a loss, pulls together, kicks ass and takes names For me, these usually border a line between too much action and wow, that was exciting Too many of them in a row and it s too much, but spacing them out a bit improves the experience, I think.


  8. There are no shadows in the Underdark There is no room for imagination in the Underdark It is a place for alertness, but not aliveness, a place with no room for hopes and dreams Drizzt Do UrdenMy favourite Forgotten Realms novels are the ones that take place in the Underdark The savage and wild Drow fascinate me than any other race I know They re devious, conniving and cutthroat And I freaking love them So, Drizzt deciding to leave the surface and return to his former home of Menzoberranzan in [...]


  9. While reading THE LEGEND OF DRIZZT series, I ve developed the grim suspicion that every time R.A Salvatore looks at his characters and thinks time for some development, lads and lasses, he immediately starts trying to shoehorn in an adventure to go along with it Apparently one simply cannot have development through conversation or work or leisure or for that matter anything else that does not involve leaping off the hunched shoulders of your barbarian friend to stab an ogre in the face Granted, [...]


  10. While a bit silly at times a talking sword , Starless Night gets into the action quickly The only hitch is that the assassin Entiri gives the magic ruby pendant back to Drizzt in the last half of the book Whut Why.The plot is fantastic The characters are marvelously written into the plot.The dwarves take a back seat, and the halfing Regis comes into his own leading them It s powerful and fantastic.The Joker mercenary, master of manipulation chaos in the evil dark elf city drives this book in tan [...]


  11. Drizzt, you are a kick butt super awsome drow boss, why are you whining like a punk This will become a reaccuring complaint by the way This was the one where he gets all emotionally bent out of shape that pain had been caused on his behalf Then Cattie brie has to go and drag him out of the caverns I was at a toss up over whether Cattie Brie came across as an awsome empowered female who isn t afraid to risk her life for a friend, or if she came off as the woman who drives out in the middle of th [...]


  12. Die ersten zwei B nde dieses Zyklus sind bisher die schw chsten der Drizzt ReiheLeider ist der Auto der Ansicht, es w re eine Super Idee, seine Helden mal so richtig leiden zu sehen, aber wenn ich das lesen will, dann greife ich zu B chern von Martin.Salvatore steht f r mich f r B cher, in denen am Ende der Held der strahlende Gewinner ist und nciht gebrochen am Boden liegt High Fantasy liegt ihm defintiv mehr als Dark Fantasy.Drizzt wird hier mehr zu einem nervigen Jammerlappen, der von seinen [...]


  13. The aftermath of what happened in the previous book plays a big part in the motivation for Drizz t in this one Somehow, it didn t feel authentic However, it was still full of action and adventure, and the plot took advantage of the world built by the creators I m worried that the subsequent books will feel a bit formulaic, but it s a good story nonetheless, so I ll stick with it.


  14. Not going to lie, but I felt like I forced myself to read this because of how great the earlier books were Personally lost all respect for Catti Brie, let s just say Wulfgar deserved better A lot of time spent detailing Menzoberranzan but couldn t care less about it Plus side, they finally met their match.


  15. I like the kindness and charm of Salvatore s books Though, I m just tired of reading about fights between Drizzt and Artemis And here he is Alive Again It would be much better to end this part of story back in Calimport


  16. Drizzt pensa che Mithril Hall sia minacciata da Menzoberranzan E ha ragione Quindi parte da solo per evitare una guerra contro la sua nuova patria Ma Cattie Brie andr ad aiutarlo.Bellissimo Gran sorpresa nel finale.


  17. Bardzo przyjemna do czytania Ciekawy wiat, w sumie niespotykany Ciekawy pomys na stworzenie wiata mrocznych elf w z ich zasadami, religia itp Daje tylko 4 gwiazdki bo nie przeczyta em wcze niejszych ksiazek, ale zdecydowanie wr c do tej serii.


  18. Overall really fun The author has a to balance between keeping the story moving and stopping to recognize the structure he has already built It s getting a bit bulky and spread out but overall a really fun part of the series.


  19. NEXT Spoiler alert I ve read some reviews about how easy it was for the companions to escape But that is how the story was meant to be The path was laid out for them to escape by Jaralaxe There were still some epic battles and Cattie Brie s witting, innocence was great


  20. Great as alwaysI enjoyed the action, and suspense I always the magic and magical items in the books, and this book was great Intense




  21. Yes, the other cover was so bad I deleted my FB review and reposted with a different cover Because I am that way.


  22. Summary omg why did you go down there Frustrating and satisfying all at the same time I enjoyed it than the previous one I think.


  23. I still enjoy these books but they feel increasingly like a guilty pleasure They re all fluff no substance



  24. This is my first time through this series, and I have been intrigued and entertained by all of the books so far, but this book, this book has taken my love for fantasy novels higher This book might be one of my favorite fantasy novels I have ever read.If you haven t read the previous books, don t even bother If you have been on the fence as to whether or not to read The Dark Elf Trilogy prequels, and have read all of the other books up to this point, before you read this book would be a great ti [...]


  25. Starless Night by R.A Salvatore is the second book in The Legacy of the Drow series and this book brought our main character back to his roots Upset with the Drow attacking Mithril Hall and the results, Drizzt decides to sacrifice himself, to save his friends, by returning to Menzoberrazan This is basically a suicide mission that Drizzt does not intend to come back from Catti Brie does not want to lose her close friend though, and decides to follow Drizzt.I liked this sequel to The Legacy becaus [...]


  26. The book follows on the heels of The Legacy Wulfgar the barbarian, adopted son of Bruenor Battlehammer dwarven king of Mithril Hall , has been killed in a heroic self sacrifice to save those he loved Of those are Catti brie, Wulfgar s fiancee and Bruenor s adopted human daughter Is it just me, or does two adopted children marrying each other seem somewhat bizarrely incestuous In the aftermath, Bruenor, Catti brie and Drizzt Do Urden, a dark elven ranger, each deal with their grief in a different [...]


  27. My one prevailing thought throughout this book was, Is it over yet Now, I m a huge new Drizzt fan, and have enjoyed practically every other book in this series, but for some reason this one just pained me almost every step of the way.Entreri s still alive, and still desires to prove to himself that he s a better fighter than Drizzt even though he clearly lost the two fights prior Not only that, but there are now two other characters who have decided that they need to defeat Drizzt in order to pr [...]
