If you enjoyed the other Drizzt series books, you will surely enjoy this one.

As much as I love the Drizzt series, this is one of my least favorite books in it. There were several times I'd get so frustrated that the characters were so blind as to who Errtu had that I wanted to scream. If it were Zak, why would Catti-brie need to be involved? I probably got annoyed by that thought for the majority of the book. There were also other times where things happened that seemed a little improbable but had to work so that they'd fit into the story to make things all work out in the end. Overall, if you over-look the plot-holes, it still makes for a decent story. Even if you're left with wondering what happened during those six years that happened between the previous book and this one.

Six years, not so long in the lifespan of a drow. And yet, in counting the months, the weeks, the days, the hours - it seemed to me as if I had been away from Mithril Hall a hundred times that number. The place was another lifetime, another way of life, a mere stepping stone to .....
To What? To Where?
I ride the waves along the sword coast now, the wind and spray in my face. My ceiling is the rush of clouds and the canopy of stars; my floor, the creaking boards of a swift, well-weathered ship. Beyond that lies the azure blanket, flat and still, heaving and rolling, hissing in the rain and exploding under the fall of a breaching whale.
Is this, then, my home?

Yet another book in the Drizzt saga, this one falling between "Siege of Darkness" and "The Silent Blade."

In this book, Drizzt and Catti-brie leave Mithril Hall together in search of adventure, sailing along the Sword Coast with Captain Deudermont, but no matter how far they sail, they can't quite escape the shadow of Wulfgar's death, nor the threat of their implacable enemies from the Abyss.

I'm a fervid fan of the early Drizzt books, but starting with this book my interest wanes, largely because Salvatore's writing betrays less and less enthusiasm for this cast and this setting. Drizzt has become a cheatcode, his angst is mostly played out, and Wulfgar... let's not even discuss that. The books following this one just make it more and obvious that Salvatore would really like to retire Drizzt and move on to something else (alas, if he did, TSR would only hire some less competent person to do it for him).

Fans of the Cleric Quintet (also by Salvatore) may be pleased by the brief appearance of Cadderly and his crew in this book. Entreri fans lose out, as our favorite assassin does not make an appearance.
