Publisher's Summary

Drizzt joins Bruenor on his quest for the fabled dwarven kingdom of Gauntlgrym: ruins said to be rich with ancient treasure and arcane lore. But before they even get close, another drow and dwarf pair stumbles across it first: Jarlaxle and Athrogate. In their search for treasure and magic, Jarlaxle and Athrogate inadvertently set into motion a catastrophe that could spell disaster for the unsuspecting people of the city of Neverwinter - a catastrophe big enough to lure even the mercenary Jarlaxle into risking his own coin and skin to stop it.
Unfortunately, the more they uncover about the secret of Gauntlgrym, the more it looks like they can’t stop it on their own. They’ll need help, and from the last people they ever thought to fight alongside again: Drizzt and Bruenor.

Pleasantly Surprised.

If you could sum up Gauntlgrym in three words, what would they be?

Action Packed,decadent


What other book might you compare Gauntlgrym to and why?

I have never read another title that fits into the realm of high fantasy.


Have you listened to any of Victor Bevine’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

First time listener of Mr Bevine.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I tried my best. I listened for hours on end.


Any additional comments?

Gauntlgrym is one of the best bits of fantasy Ive ever read. I was really not aware of Salvatores work until a friend recommended it. From what I understand Salvatore has a rich history with fantasy literature. Im just sorry I never knew of his work before now. Gauntlgrym has great character development,action packed fights, and he paints some of the most decadent worlds Ive ever imagined. If you are a fan of high fantasy you owe it to yourself to give this book a chance. IMHO you won't regret taking the leap.

a bold new path begins for D&D's favorite Drow

What did you love best about Gauntlgrym?

Drizzt's is finally breaking with all the familiar trappings and coming to terms that all the old friends and loved ones he found at his side for aid and direction in life are going or gone and he must fine a new reason to live. Of course RS is handling this beautifully and leaves me with nothing but confident optimism and well as anticipation for what lies down the road for my favorite D&D based recurring hero. This books does a beautiful job of expressing the pain of having to move on from a chapter in your life yet transitioning wonderfully as the changing from 3.5 to 4.0 for Forgotton Realms leaves the world that Drizzt lives in ripe for new adventure.
