Summary

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller!

R. A. Salvatore returns with one of fantasy's most beloved and enduring icons, the dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden, in an all-new trilogy full of swordplay, danger, and imaginative thrills.

Centuries ago, in the city of Menzoberranzan--the City of Spiders, the city of drow--nestled deep in the unmerciful Underdark of Toril, a young weapon master earned a reputation far above his station or that of his poor house.

Zaknafein.

The greater nobles watched him, and one powerful Matron--Malice--decided to take him as her own. She connived with rival houses to secure her prize, but it was ultimately the roguish Jarlaxle who caught him.

Thus sparked the birth of two key moments in Menzoberranzan: the coupling of a noble and weapon master that would produce Drizzt Do'Urden...and the friendship between Zaknafein and Jarlaxle.

R. A. Salvatore reveals the Underdark anew through the eyes of this unlikely pair--offering a fresh take on the intrigue and opportunities to be found in the shadows, and providing a fascinating prelude to the journeys that have shaped the modern-day Forgotten Realms. There, Zaknafein and Drizzt are joined together in a series of trials that parallel those of centuries long past, even though their paths no longer seem to be aligned. How will a father, so long constrained by the vicious and conservative world of the drow, be able to reconcile his ingrained prejudices with the world and companions of his enlightened son?

The answer lies in their desire for peace over chaos. And as long as the scourge of the goddess Lolth's ambitions still remain, both are determined to keep her dark will at bay. But the Spider Queen is powerful, and now demons have been unleashed on the unwitting denizens of the surface world. United in purpose--and through their mutual friendship with Jarlaxle--Zaknafein and Drizzt will need to put aside their differences in order to keep the ones they love safe.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Fans of Salvatore (Child of a Mad God, 2018) and the intricacies of the Underdark will be doubly excited by this new Drizzt Do'Urden novel, which bounces between modern-day Forgotten Realms and the early adventures of Drizzt Do'Urden's father, Zaknafein, a skilled weapon master. Salvatore explores the origins of the friendship between the drow mercenary Jarlaxle and the weapon master with Zaknafein's mysterious return from death. (Longtime Underdark fans will particularly appreciate the history of Jarlaxle's hairstyle.) Zaknafein's relationships redevelop, and he adapts to the significant changes that have occurred since his death, 200 years prior. Regis, a halfling spy, learns that Lord Neverember, who despises the Gauntlgrym's dwarves led by King Bruenor, has sold nearby ruins to an unknown dwarven clan. The investigation by Drizzt and his allies uncovers demons loose on the surface who are linked to both the Underdark and the dwarven ruins. This first book of a new trilogy sets Drizzt and his allies up for the fight of their lives, with the tendrils of Lolthian chaos stretching throughout the Realms.--Frances Moritz Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This highly anticipated trilogy launch from Salvatore, a prequel to his Forgotten Realms epic fantasy novels starring dark elf Drizzt do'Urden, is a deeply immersive tale of politics and war. In 1018 by the Dalereckoning calendar, Jarlaxle, a mercenary, is sent to save a great warrior, Zaknafein, from a house that is about to lose a war, and to deliver him to another house. He soon finds out there's more to this fighter, and they become friends. The narrative then skips to the year 1488, when Zaknafein returns to life after many years in the grave. Jarlaxle must reintroduce Zaknafein to his son, Drizzt, who had long ago come to terms with his father's self-sacrifice and death, and is not ready to accept that he's returned. The alternation between the two time periods helps new readers understand the action and returning ones refresh their memories. Familiarity with the Forgotten Realms will add nuance to the experience of this installment, but all readers will find pure, often heart-racing enjoyment as they are drawn into Salvatore's beautifully crafted world.
