I've already commented on this series as a whole, but this book marks a turning point.

By the time the reader has reached this book, the formula is set in stone. Drizzt fights and wins, then fights and wins again. The villain never dies, the supporting characters make brief quips, and nobody but nobody gets one single hint of development as a human character (except for Drizzt, who stopped developing several books ago).

Appropriate for young children, and possibly as a guilty pleasure. Don't get me wrong: I have fond memories of cuddling up with this book and a mug of hot chocolate. It's just... I wouldn't read it again.

Dani You forgot the part where the characters never actually die for real.

Oh, great scott, you're right. Good stories have characters that die for real... let them die!
