If I've never read a Salvatore book, is this a good place to start? And if not, which book should I pick up first? Kenny Thompson No Its fantastic. You will be lost if you start here.
I acquired this book and would like to read it. It is the first in a series, but I see that it is number 20! I saw the answer that you should start with the Dark Elf trilogy. Will that give you enough background or do you really have to read all 19 previous books to understand it? Austin In most of these books they will slightly go over some tidbits of a character or event that happened prior to the one being read.

I took a little break from this saga after The Ghost King which ripped out my heart , but picking up Gauntlgrym after all that time felt like coming home.
Salvatore is known for his detailed hand-to-hand combat scenes, which pack a lot of excitement into his books. That said, Salvatore strikes again! I also loved the mix of new and old characters — the elf woman cover image , among my new favorites. Overall, Gauntlgrym I am proud to say that I can finally spell it without having to look it up— go me!
Salvatore Magician: Apprentice — Raymond E. Brett Via The Obsessive Bookseller at www. Oct 04, Nathan rated it it was ok. I am almost offended that this book has 4 stars.
I have read and enjoyed all the Drizzt characters, but in this book Salvatore introduces a character who breaks his own world, is crazy annoying, and is quite obviously, the DM's girlfriend. Drizzt has fought some badass stuff over the years, he's fought against Drow, Assassins, Dwarves, Demons, Liches, Undead of Every flavor. Hell, open a Monster's Manual and flip through it, Drizzt has probably killed whatever you turn to in there.
There is also a character named Barbarus in this book, who I was happy to see and is only vaguely disguised as clearly another character from this series. And then there's Dahlia, she out wits the witty characters and outfights the fighty characters. Her motivation? How did she get so badass? Years of training under the best weaponsmasters in the world?
A life as a fugitive, constantly on the run and fighting guards every step of the way? She was raped by demons. That's her backstory. That's literally the only thing about this character's past that we know. And she outdoes every character she encounters in this book in everything. She has a magic staff, that Salvatore rambles on and on about constantly. It was bad enough that I hesitated buying the next book in the series, and since she appears in it and has even more screen time than in this one, I put the book down and am currently uncertain if I'm going to be reading any more of RA Salvatore's writing, which again as someone who has read every other book he's written and given him stars is pretty bad.
For the few things I DID like. He does a bunch of huge time jumps, like years at the end of each chapter. Most people didn't like this, but I thought it did a good job of showing a world changing around these characters with extended lifespans. I also like the reappearance of Barbarus, and the descriptions and ideas in Gauntlgrym some complaints I read called it a mines of moria knockoff, but I didn't get that, I thought it was awesome.
Some longtime characters won't be returning after this book, and met a very fitting end here, and the climax of the book, I thought, was great, but getting there was a serious chore. If you're a completionist or intend to read more of Salvatore's stuff you should probably give this a read since it has some major plot stuff, but if you read The Ghost King and liked it, you might want to consider that the end of the Drizzt series of books and close off on a highish note.
Gauntlgrym by R. Salvatore- This is the first book in the Neverwinter trilogy as well as the twentieth novel in The Legend of Drizzt series. The next two books in the trilogy are yet to be named at the time of this review. The Legend of Drizzt series contains a number of trilogies and series and it all takes place in the Forgotten Realm universe of Dungeons and Dragons.
Salvatore has also written a few other books set in shared universes. Along with all that, he has written a few short stories.
Gauntlgrym was released in October and is published by Wizards of the Coast. Years have passed since Drizzt Do'Urden's life changed. His love, Catti-brie, is dead, along with his friend Regis. The dwarven kingdom of Mithral Hall's peace treaty with the orcish Kingdom of Many Arrows has held over the years and a peace is found in the land.
His other friend, the king of Mithral Hall, Bruenor Battlehammer, is nearing the end of his life. However, Bruenor still has the fire in him to find the lost dwarven kingdom named Gauntlgrym, so he brings Drizzt, the battlerager Pwent, an orc named Jessa, and a gnome alchemist named Nanfoodle along with him.
Years upon years pass by with no luck finding the place. Even after Jessa and Nanfoodle pass away, Drizzt and Bruenor continue the search. However, another group stumbles upon the forgotten city. A Thayan named Dahlia is searching for what powered the Hosttower, a treelike tower that housed wizards in Luskan before the cities fall. Her search for answers leads her to Jarlaxle and his dwarven friend Athrogate. Little do they know that it was Gauntlgrym that produced the Hosttower.
Unknown to the group, unleash a primordial and with it, devastation. After years pass after the devastation, Drizzt and Bruenor are still on the search for the ancient dwarven stronghold.
