As The Two Swords begins, newly ressurected dwarven King Bruenor Bruenor Battlehammer and his subjects are sealed in Mithral Hall. Beyond their gate lies the slavering orc army of King Obould Many Arrows, who schemes beyond the mere death of dwarves and seeks to establish an honest-to-Gruumsh kingdom--the Kingdom of Dark Arrows--at the foot of Mithral Hall. Meanwhile, the ...more

I'm a huge fan of Drizzt. The problem that I am having is that I want to continue reading about this drow elf but the author is ever increasingly making him a weak character. Drizzt has never really defeated any large bosses, it always comes at the hands of his companions. Drizzt never finds real love... I suppose because he is always conflicted. Drizzt is never the real hero in any of the stories, it always turns out to be a side kick.Another thing about Salvatore's writings that is starting to ...more

This review will have some spoilers.

This is the second time I read this book. The whole trilogy is good, and I like it a lot more than the Sellswords Series that came before.

Salvatore is trying to do some transitioning here and tying up some loose ends. I was not a big fan of the Delly/Colson storyline, and that came to an end here pretty much. I really liked how the sword Khazid’hea was used in this book.

There was some good troll battling early on in this book, and then just general fighting.

I have to admit I am annoyed. It is one thing to be constantly bombarded with trilogies in this series, but at least they would end in a somewhat satisfying way. My guilty pleasure I would often remark. This one built and built, and was building to something great - then fizzled into ... nothing. The end of this book did more to set up the next books than to end this one! I simply hate when characters make obviously stupid choices, and this ending doesn't even make sense! **SPOILERS** Why would ...more

For the longest time I thought this would be the first R.A. Salvatore book that I rated 2 stars but he pulled it out enough to round up to 3 stars.


I expect more.

Imagine an action movie that has a car chase. Exciting isn't it? How about if the car chase lasted two hours and there was nothing else to the movie. That is what this entire trilogy turned out to be and the last book in the series (The Two Swords) was the worst offender. 376 pages of action and battles and nothing else. It just got b

What does it mean to be an elf? This question is repeatedly asked and slowly answered by Drizzt Do'urden as he continues his journey in the final book of of the Hunter's Blades Trilogy, The Two Swords, by R.A. Salvatore. It continues on with Drizzt and the elf Innovindil tracking down Gerti and her frost giants to their home in Shining White. Obould, the orc king and supposed god of the orcs, has given Sunrise, one of the pegasi that is highly important to Innovindil, to Gerti as a gift for her ...more
Much has been said of R.A. Salvatore's Forgotten Realms novels in the last few years, and most of it is negative. are Drizzt and his friends seemingly invulnerable? Yes. Has Salvatore failed to introduce much in the way of interesting new characters? Yes. Are his books generally getting repetitive? Yes. Are they boring?...well, no.

Most of the fantasy I read is in the Forgotten Realms world. Take that as you will, but Salvatore still wipes the floor with the majority as the Realms writers. Usuall
Would you believe that I actually rooted for the orcs? I would've liked the book so much more if it had been just about the dwarves against the orcs. I loved Obould's rise to power, his vision. And I loved reading about the dwarves, how they all united against the enemy and how they kicked major butt with the help of Nanfoodle the gnome and Pikel the "doo-da". Those parts were awesome, the back and forth between the two armies. The rest though...

The only characters who actually went forward and
Hunter's Blade serisinin de son kitabini bitirmis oldum. Drizzt tüm arkadaşlarının öldüğünü düşünerek avcı olarak savaşına devam etmekte ve orc kralı Obould'a saldırmayi düşünmektedir.

Son seriler içinde en çok beğendiğim serilerden biri oldu. Drizzt in kendisi ve dış dünya olan ilişkilerini okuyoruz.

Finally! Having been rather disappointed with the first two books in this series (The Thousand Orcs and The Lone Drow), I was happy to find that I greatly enjoyed The Two Swords.

Having read quite a few books staring Drizzt Do'Urden, I had been disappointed with the lack of focus on the main character. But in this book, Drizzt once again steps into the forefront. Also, the storyline that focuses on King Bruenor also steps up some and becomes very interesting, as the dwarves have to defend their

There are a lot of fantasy writers out there... What makes RA Salvatore different? To start, it is the character building. Most of his characters, even if they aren't the main ones, are not cardboard cutouts. They have conflicting emptions, desires, and often disagree about what the heroes of the novels want to do (sometimes vociferously). This was very evident in this story as the invading orcs consolidate their holdings and plot their next move.

Well, thisnwas a good wrap up to this story line. I loke that the Colson/Delli story line os coming to a close, and the Drizzt is no longer an idiot. This book includes so many awesome characters - Breunor, Catti Bri, Wulfgar Regis and Drizzt of course, but Ivan and Pickle, Pwent, Ilustrial, and Sunrise and Sunset.

I enjoyed the twists with the Giants, and look forward to seeing how the Kingdom of Many Arrows is defeated.

Siempre digo lo mismo, Salvatore me entusiasma tanto como me aburre.
Me ha parecido predecible a partir de la tercera parte, desde que cierta persona sustrae cierta cosa ya venía todo hilado. Como siempre, Drizzt nunca termina de acabar la faena, imagino que ya con vistas a otros libros, que por títulos claro esta que si.

Voy a dejar de leer a Drizzt un tiempo porque necesito descansar (si puedo)

I found this trilogy to be a nice change of pace from some of the previous books. I really enjoyed it start to finish, and was rather content with how it concluded. It leaves you with an idea of what to anticipate, while still being eager to unravel the adventures soon to come.

I really enjoyed so many of the aspects of the story, between Catti-Brie's change of character, Wulfgar finding his true self once again, Drizzt's turmoil (though at time his judgement was incredibly questionable), the dwa

I had such high hopes after book two that three would end on a great upswing. Sadly book three did anything but upswing. Hell it really didnt even finish. When 40% of your book is staging for a fight outside your base and 55% is chasing a pegasus and only 5% is an attempt to cobble an ending together you seriously have failed as a writer. The ending of this book was pathetic nothing came together no threats were eliminated. To say comic book deaths were involved all around doesnt do justice to h ...more

3/5 stars.
Paperback, 376 pages.
Read from September 02 to 16, 2015.

If someone had told me 10 years ago when I first picked up this series that I'd still be reading it, I would have called them liars. This is the 16th book in the Legend of Drizzt series , and the third and final book in the Hunter's Blade Trilogy by R.A. Salvatore. What's mad, is that I'm only part way through this series! Not sure if this is true, but I was told that Salvator
*****WARNING-Minor Spoilers*****

The Two Swords ends RA Salvador's The Hunter's Blades trilogy. The book picks up where the previous one left off and continues the saga of Drizzt Do'urdon and friends. Sadly I found this book the weakest of the trilogy. Salvador usually does a good job of keeping his writing within the realms of possibility of the actual Dungeons and Dragons game. This book (and really the trilogy in general) strain that to the breaking point. While the Orc King is certainly a wor

The best Drizzt book in quite a while. The previous two books in The Hunter's Blades Trilogy are pretty good, but they have their share of filler. The Two Swords does not. It keeps things interesting from beginning to end, and even throws in some unexpected plot twists.
The end is a bit anti-climactic, but it sets the stage for further adventures.
Before this trilogy came out, I thought Drizzt's character was pretty much fully developed, and he had nowhere else to go. Oh sure, he could chop up m

"To be an elf is to celebrate life. To be an elf is to revel in the moments, in the sunrise and the sunset, in the sudden and brief episodes of love and adventure, in the hours of companionship. It is, most of all, to never be paralyzed by your fears of a future that no one can foretell, even if predictions lead you to the seemingly obvious, and often disparaging, conclusions. I know now, and so I am free of the bonds of the future. I know that every moment is to be treasured to be enjoyed, to b ...more

The Two Swords closes up the Hunter's Blade trilogy in Drizzit's ongoing adventure. In this finale, Drizzit is still overcome with anger as more of his friends end up falling around him and he is powerless to stop it. He knows that one man can't end a war, but is determined to at least kill the person responsible for starting it. He does not care how much stronger this opponent is. In the end, however, he must find a friend, or he will die along with the rest of the people dragged into the confl ...more

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 hom

I love King Obould, he made this entire trilogy readable just like Artemis Entreri did for the previous books. I don't necessarily like rooting for the antagonist but as Legacy of the Drow goes on I find myself doing it more and more. Drizzt and his friends are boring to me now so I relish the times when Salvatore introduces a bad guy with some depth.

3.5 stars. A rather disappointing ending to the Hunter's Blades Trilogy in and of itself, but I guess if you look at the entire run of Drizzt books as one long series then it does a great job of setting up things to come.

Ridiculously good trilogy with a middling ending. (Sorry but I like things wrapped up nicely in my novels.) Glad to see old friends reunited but who's going to kill all these orcs? Got the feeling I must've been sucked into a Drizzt Do'Urden series, not that that's the worst thing in the world.

This felt like Salvatore waas trying something new out (Drizzt seperated from the group), a disctinct improvement on the previous whinging book however. Looking forward to the Orc King after i've read the Sellswords.
