I loved this book. I remember a friend telling me about it a long time ago. Later on I found another friend who had the trilogy, and he let me borrow it. That's about the time I discovered R.A. Salvatore. I love the adventures of Drizzt and Guenhwyvar his magical cat. R.A. Salvatore is an excellent writer.

I actually read this book first because I couldn't get my hands on Homeland; that didn't matter too much, though, since I was still drawn into the story and fascinated from beginning to end. I immediately got on Paperback Swap and requested the whole trilogy once I finished this!

First, it's really nice to see that they've redone the cover art for this book, as the original one made Drizzt look like an old man.

As for the story, this is one I've read a few times now. I can't say that it gets better with each read, because I tend to find plot holes and after awhile Drizzt's whining gets on a girl's nerves. I guess I prefer the hero who's not filled with continual angst and learns how to just deal with things and not looking for the reader's sympathy. I've learned to mostly skim the "reflections" part that are in first person in these books.

Regardless of how Drizzt can annoy me, the story surrounding him is fun. I tend to really like the supporting cast and the over-the-top craziness of some of the villains. I'll probably be re-reading this one again in a few years just for that reason alone.

Continuing travels of Drizzt are worth the read for some easy fun.

The story was extremely satisfying, from the beginning to the very end. Even the POV's of the villains are intriguing and juicy to read. But what I love most of all about Exile is that it is one of the most meaningful fantasy novels I have ever read. Its themes include fighting your inner demon, and how friendship can redeem the spirit. Themes that have been done, but written well enough to not be corny.

Drizzt isn't just a two-dimensional protagonist; he could be his own antagonist. Salvatore could have made the story corny, but it turned out to be a heart-wrenching and heart-warming story at the same time. I cried and rejoiced inside as I read of his trials.

Salvatore's writing style is addictive. I read the first page, and hungered for more.

I like this series so far, but this book tried to deal with some inner dilemmas that the main character faced that weren't quite authentic. I felt that sometimes Drizzt created problems for himself, but nonetheless it was still excellent and packed with action, adventure, and friendships that were touching.

Hostile in ways that a surface-dweller could never know, the tunnel-mazes of the Underdark challenge all who tread there. Among these souls are Drizzt Do'Urden and his magical cat, Guenhwyvar. Exiled from his drow homeland, Drizzt must fight for a new home in the boundless labyrinth. Meanwhile, he must watch for signs of pursuit - for the dark elves are not a forgiving race.

I do think this book is better than the first one. The editing to get batter finally. There isn't as much repeat writing, some, but not nearly as much. The story is a lot more fast paced than the first book. More adventurous as well. I did enjoy this book more.

"Exile is R.A. Salvatore's second book in The Dark Elf Trilogy, set in the FORGOTTEN REALMS fantasy world from TSR, Inc."
