In the final book of the #4 New York Times best-selling Neverwinter Saga, Drizzt Do’Urden navigates a winding path littered with secrets and lies. Tangled up in his companion Dahlia’s dark secrets, the ties that once held her close to Drizzt threaten to tear as her bonds to his former foe, Artemis Entreri, continue to grow. Meanwhile, in the caverns of Gauntlgrym, the drow Tiago Baenre enlists the help of Bregan D’aerthe in his quest to destroy Drizzt. While making promises they may not keep, the agents of the elite drow mercenary group hide plans of their own. Determined to stand for what’s right in the Realms once again, Drizzt forges a new road north—toward Icewind Dale. Will his new companions follow? Can he fight the darkness alone? Either way, he knows now where he’s headed—back to the only place that’s ever felt like home.   


In the fourth and final book of the Neverwinter Saga, we find Drizzt having to deal with his new companions. The trials and tribulations of Drizzt and Dahlia's relationship come to a head. He also has to deal with his former adversary Artemis Entreri along with his new companions, the female dwarf Ambergris and human monk Afafrenfere both former members of the mercenary group Cavus Dun. Add to this quagmire Dahlias tiefling son Effron, we find many story lines intertwining and coming to a climax.

This book is one of R.A. Salvatores slower books, with not much action until the last third of the book. I enjoy every book with Drizzt in it. His trials and tribulations do at times mirror some of the feelings I feel inside. What is right and wrong, black and white? Throughout all of Drizzt's books he always finds a way to overcome, be it a seemingly undefeatable foe, a bad situation, or just inner turmoil. He seems to drag me along like I was Drizzt himself, no matter how slow or fast paced.
