Gauntlgrym by R. A. Salvatore (Legend of Drizzt, #20)

Gauntlgrym is a book of transition and morning. It’s the start of a new phase for Drizzt Do’Urden, fulfills Bruenor’s quest, and launches a new series in the Forgotten Realms. The combat remains excellent, and I’m excited for what’s next.

I’ve been reading about Drizzt for more than ten years, and while it’s hard to reach the phase of his long, long, life where old friends fall to age and battle, I’m very happy with this book. It has contemplation and mourning, but also sets up new things/people to care about and maybe life for as he moves on.

It is a prequel novel to a game, which I haven’t played (though I’ve played other Forgotten Realms games), and I think there’s enough here that anyone reading it because of the game will have things to like, and anyone reading it because they already read books about Drizzt will not be disappointed.
