— feeling booklikes
My hubby turned me onto this author, and this chracter Drizzt Do'urden years ago. I fell in love instantly! When I saw there was a newer series out starring you-know-who, I grabbed a copy right away!
So with all beginnings in a series, especially fantasies, there is a bit of a bore to the start. It's all about introducing, or re-introducing, characters to the reader. About a quarter of the way in it picks up and the fights scenes begin. (In a fantasy with dwarves and drow you definitely want fights.) This book will not disappoint you there. The rest of the book is battle after battle.
It ended with a bit of a cliffhanger though. I'm not a fan of those. I hate waiting.
So not my favorite story, but I liked it enough to want to read the next one. I also recommend this series to any fantasy fans!
