Concluding the Hunter's Blades Trilogy, "The Two Swords," leads pretty much where you would expect it to go. Salvatore's writing is good; and he spins a good yarn, but the stories of Drizzt Do'Urden have very much become a soap opera. Aside from some interstitial passages about "what it means to be an elf", there's very little here beyond the basic plot.

Having said that, though, it is fun. Our heroes continue to have adventures, and continue to look worriedly at significant threats to their homes. The fight scenes are great, the dwarves show ingeniuity, and the orcs are brutal.

I do tend to wonder, however, why the magical healing that's depicted in the novel is significantly less powerful than the magical healing in the D&D game itself. Artistic license, I suppose.

Pretty standard R.A. Salvatore fare--good quick read that is entertaining and diverting for a couple of hours.
