I giorni non potrebbero scorrere più sereni e felici per Drizzt Do' Urden, il giovane principe drow; dopo tante peripezie è finalmente riuscito a riunirsi ai suoi amici in un porto sicuro, la mitica Mithrill Hall. Eppure Drizzt non riesce a darsi pace: i suoi indomiti avversari, sempre più potenti e arroganti, costituiscono ancora una minaccia. Difatti Lloth, la temutissim ...more

In which Drizzt learns that family is forever. They may be evil psychotic bitches, but you’re still tethered to them unless you’re willing to do something drastic about it. Readers who have had a change in religion from their families and find it coming back to bite them will also feel right at home in this adventure!

The Spider goddess, Lloth, does her best to re-capture Drizzt and get what she considers her due. Possibly because friendship is an unknown quality in Drow Elf society, she under-es

Esta saga comienza de manera esplendida. Es todo lo que esperamos, y queremos, leer sobre fantasia. Es la base para todo lo demas, como juegos de mesa, videojuegos, peliculas, o hasta otros libros.

Pero con el tiempo se va estancando, deja de fluir la originalidad, los momentos de calma o tension dejan de afectarnos. Pasa a ser un paramo llano sin ninguna emocion.

Las conversaciones pasan a ser absurdamente repetitivas y predecibles. Ya sabemos que un barbaro va a hablar como barbaro. Un enano com

Simply amazing! I've read this about 3 times now since first reading it in high school. I love these characters and this book starts out on a long stretch that goes...oh, I'd say a good 4 books or so.

There's a lot of good humor and cheer and then things get bloody. But that's the way we like it, right? Hey, who the hell am I writing this to, anyways? You know this is 5-star!

It's really hard to rate this series on a five star scale. There are definitely deeper philosophical books, but these books are entertaining. Each one further develops the characters, while adding something to the overall mythos of the fantasy universe being presented. There are clear good guys and bad guys.

Of this book in particular, I would say that the beginning and middle were just so-so. The ending was really pretty good. The return of old adversaries and the revelation of an ancient grudge

Guilty pleasure of course, cruised through half of it in a couple hours on a nice saturday afternoon. Same ol same ol concept. Drizzit and his allies set out on a quest after old resurfaces nemesis however their quest ends up taking them deep into Drizzts homeland that he vowed never to return to again. Lots of fight scenes...probably too much which would have shorted the book by about 25% if some of the over done portions were taken out, but again I wasnt looking for the perfect novel just some ...more

This book is quite possibly the best pure action book I've ever read. It helps that after six books, RAS doesn't have to spend too much time explaining characters and their motives. So while the heart strings were plucked a couple of times, it was the action strings that were strummed. All this action makes this book one incredibly fast read especially if you are vested in the story and characters. One heart string is plucked very hard and I'm man enough to admit that it choked me up (just brief ...more

What a mess.

My college roommate will remember this book, not because he read it, but because I ranted about it so much while I read it. So dumb.

There's a scene in this book that will go down as one of the stupidest things to ever happen in any book ever - (view spoiler)

Typical Salvatore/Drizzt book. I guess you can turn a blind eye on the obvious flaws if you are a fan of the Drizzt series. A quick and action packed read, lot of fun!

I was really excited about this book, but ultimately I felt a little let down. I was so excited to have Drizzt’s crazy family returning as villains, but so much just seemed to be lacking here. Vierna and Dinin were Drizzt’s last two remaining family members, the family that was cunning enough to survive with the rest of their family gone… but it turns out they didn’t really survive at all. Vierna went completely mental and lost all of the shrewd intelligence that set her above her sisters and tu ...more

Been many years since i last read this book, and i had forgotten some of the items that appeared in this book. Including one of the biggest.
I liked how this book managed to tie up the previous two trilogies - by bringing Drizzt family back into it.

Drowların seriye yeniden dahil olması çok iyi olmuş, bu serideki en çarpıcı ırk drowlar muhtemelen. Temposu yüksek bir giriş kitabıydı.

It was good to get back to the underground, with the spiders, assassins and creeps.
The Legacy by R.A. Salvatore is the 7th book in his Drizzt series and the first R.A. Salvatore book I’ve read in probably 15 years. I read The Icewind Dale and Dark Elf Trilogy when I was a teenager and absolutely loved them. Drizzt is still one of my favorite characters in fantasy. I wanted to read some of the later books, because Salvatore’s work is comfort fantasy for me, and that is what I was in the mood for.

The Legacy features the Drow coming after Drizzt. The entire story takes place unde

R.A. Salvatore is the nicest guy you'll ever meet or talk to online. Seriously. It is impossible to not like the guy. His writing is adequate, though. The Crystal Shard was his first novel. Like Pat Rothfuss, Salvatore has an English/Writing degree, and I compare the two because their writing skill is similar. Rothfuss is full of @*#$, while Salvatore is not--he tries very hard, succeeds and fails in equal measure, and is not full of himself like Rothfuss.

So, while I can follow along with Salva

Ha sido genial reencontrarse con estos personajes, aunque he dejado pasar tanto tiempo que había ciertas cosas que se me habían olvidado.

Continuaré con la saga y con los libros que me queden de Drittz, amo a este personaje.

Afterwards the led a dwarvish army against Bruenor’s ancient realm of Mithril Hall and took it again for the king.

I cannot put these books down. RA Salvatore is just amazing. Full of adventure, action and awesome characters. And I am just loving the world of the Forgotten Realms. It is full of so many exciting and creative creatures and places. I am finding myself excited and drawn to the other books in the Forgotten World series, once I finish Salvatore and even the computer games. Maybe I can get one of the older games for cheap. I cannot believe Ed Greenwood created this world when he was only 8 years ol ...more

I find it difficult to draw up a summary on these books without spoiling anything, so here's the gist of things; Many new threats have to come Mithril Hall, both Foreign and domestic and of course it has to be near a wedding date. New faces are common amongst far older and fouler ones. Personal demons can be found in abundance here as we see character development by the leaps and bounds, many shattering conclusions lay within these pages.

I wanted to like this, I wanted to ignore all the campy and dull moments of the book in order to enjoy a simple and easy to read fantasy tale. But the author just kept hammering on the worst points of the novel.

The story already had a bad start with Catti-brie annoying self, saying "You can't kill the goblins, you have to talk to them first".

Then Wulfgar tried to kill Drizzt for NO REASON. Later is revealed that he was jealous of him for kissing Catti-brie on the cheek in a sign of friendship (D

It was great to see what is going on in the lives of Drizzt and his friends after the Icewind Dale Trilogy. The plot was great (some shocking twists), and I am looking forward to reading the next installment. I fell in love with the Drizzt series because of how well the characters were developed and I found them relatable, found myself rooting for them. The story went by so quickly and I felt that further character development was missing in this book; that was my one regret. My favorite parts o ...more

For all of this big talk surrounding Drow I found them weak characters in this book and not at all as frightening as Salvatore tried to make them out to be.

Also here are Salvatore's Three favorite lines in his books:
1) Drizzt's eyes flashed.

2) He reversed his momentum/grip.

3) (S)he instinctively knew.

I'm sort of getting sick of how weak everything seems compared to Drizzt. It seems like Salvatore has a crush on his own character which prevents him from ever doing wrong. It wears on me.

I read fantasy books to get away from the real world. They are, for better or worse, an escape. The first several of this series accomplished that. More recently, however, they have been straying into contrived, parochial issues of race and (with this book) gender that dominate today's world. Please, spare me. I get enough of these tired issues from the papers, the universities, and my Facebook feed. Will there ever be an end?

This entire book is just one long brawl in some caves. I'm not even exaggerating, it starts with something resembling a plot, then some people go to a cave and get ambushed, and the next 300 or so pages are one long chase through the tunnels with a fight scene on every other page. Blegh.

Another wonderful book that I have read several times, the most recent with my 8 year old son. Some people in their ratings and reviews are over critical and come off like pseudo-intellectuals. I say ignore them, read the books and be prepared to be fully entertained!

The Legacy is about 50% battle scenes which are exciting but tiresome after a while. The other 50% is ANGST. All of the characters are excruciatingly moody here - Wulfgar and Catti-brie are experiencing pre-marital troubles, Drizzt is caught up in worries over how his evil drow family has staged an invasion on the caves beneath Mithral Hall, Artemis Entreri is back and seething over how he needs to best Drizzt in a proper duel of blades and Drizzt's sister Vierna is so obsessed with tracking dow ...more

This is the third Forgotten Realms book authored by R.A. Salvatore released in 1992 and the second in a row during that year's publishing schedule (after Night Masks), and the first book in this line to come out in hardcover. I had no idea how essential Salvatore and Driz'zt were to TSR publishing right from the start. The reason is clear; it is easy to see how appealing his works were (and still are) to eager fantasy readers.

This thing is action-packed from start to finish. Salvatore's strong
