I am a big fan of Salvatore, unfortunately, this book brought a sense of deja vu to me that was hard to shake The universe has changed, the characters are the same with some improvements due to this being their second go round , but the story itself feels like it s been told before Regis is interesting, but almost in a cliched way The way the drow have started and been successful is almost too simplistic and it seems like there will be a rushed conclusion that sorts everything out I m not thrilled with the story so far, but perhaps the third book will be an improvement.

On the other hand, after the forgettable Neverwinter books, I was very happy about this resurrection dom comeback whatever this literary device is called The Dark Elf tril I received a copy of this novel from Netgalley in an exchange for an honest review.
I always look forward to the newest Drizzt novels After all, I love the world and the characters, especially Jarlaxle I ve read them since I was a girl, and they ve always been something I looked forward to every year But the latest novels in the saga have really been a mixed bag for me I get that there were changes in the Forgotten Realms setting that Salvatore had no control over, but I can t say that I am totally happy with how he chose to handle them I was not overly thrilled with bringing back the dead Companions of the Hall I honestly wanted Drizzt to move on and find other friends to have adventures with The reincarnation plot just seemed a little too far fetched Another issue is that the characters
