10299110I actually kind of like where this is going for Drizz’t’s character.

10 years after the events of Gauntlgrym, Drizz’t and his latest companion Dahlia travel the Realms and return to Neverwinter Wood where necromancer Sylora Sam continues her quest to create a Dread Ring.

Long story short, they win and Sylora loses.  But what was really interesting to me was how Drizz’t seems to be looking at his life through eyes that seem to have the rose-tinted film lifted from them.

He remembers his time with the Companions of the Hall fondly, but he is finally able to lay their ghosts to rest and move on with the rest of his very long life.

At least until one link to his past, thought long gone, suddenly reappears and drags him back through his memories again.

There’s a lot of person introspection and soul searching that Drizz’t does to fit himself into the life he finds himself living and vice versa.  It seems he’s finally becoming fallible and seeing all the faults and flaws in holding up such a strict moral code that doesn’t really make sense in the real world.

Two down, two to go for this story arch.  Can’t wait to see what the next one, Charon’s Claw brings next.

Speaking of…guess what’s next?  Yupp. Charon’s Claw.  See ya then folks!

13227445Drizzt draws his swords once more to aid his friends. His lover, Dahlia Sin’felle, can speak of nothing but the moment she will face the Netherese lord Herzgo Alegni once again. Drizzt has already followed a trail of vengeance beside Dahlia. Can he justify one more battle to settle a grudge he does not understand? Artemis Entreri too seeks vengeance. He offers to aid Dahlia in her mission to destroy Alegni. But Charon’s Claw, Alegni’s sentient sword, dominates Entreri’s movements—if not his mind. And then there’s the way Entreri looks at Dahlia. Can Drizzt trust his old foe?
