The epic conclusion to the long-awaited trilogy featuring one of the most beloved characters in all of fantasy--Drizzt Do'Urden--a rollicking tale of life, death, intrigue, magic, danger, and the timeless bonds of family and friendship from New York Times bestselling author R. A. Salvatore.
Displaced in time and unexpectedly reunited with his son Drizzt Do'Urden, Zaknafein has overcome the prejudices ingrained in him as a drow warrior to help his son battle the ambitious Spider Queen and stem the tide of darkness that has been unleashed upon the Forgotten Realms. Though Zaknafein has endured the most difficult battles, survival has come at a terrible cost, and the fight is far from over.
Facing demons and driders, Zaknafein carries the entire weight of Menzoberranzan surrounding Gauntlgym on his shoulders once more. But the chances of survival for him and his old friend and mercenary Jarlaxle look bleak. Trapped in a desperate and seemingly hopeless situation, the legendary warriors must reach deep inside themselves to face the impossible.
While the burdens Zaknafein bears are more than enough for one of Menzoberrazan's greatest warriors, fate holds further challenges. When circumstances take an unexpected turn, Zaknafein discovers he must not only conquer the darkness but learn to accept the uncontrollable: life itself.
The stakes have never been higher for R. A. Salvatore's most beloved creations in this final volume of his latest bestselling trilogy begun with Timeless and Boundless. A story of brave heroes filled with dangerous thrills, Relentless also considers eternal questions about morality, purpose, sacrifice, and the definition of harmony. Exciting, imaginative, and thought-provoking, it takes fans on an action-packed ride that will challenge their assumptions and leave them breathless and satisfied.
"Salvatore concludes the exciting Drizzt trilogy (beginning with Timeless, 2018), as the allied forces engage demons, driders, and drow. When last seen by his friends, Drizzt Do'Urden was racing across the world at magical speed, leading a demonic retriever--whose sole purpose was to destroy him--away from his allies. Both magical and physical evidence suggest that Drizzt has departed this world, leaving his friends and family to reflect on how he motivated each of them. His father, Zaknafein, in particular, ponders how he fits into this mixed-race society, so different than it was when he died two centuries before. Salvatore skillfully switches between Drizzt's early days, as seen through Zaknafein's perspective, and the modern chaos of war across the Forgotten Realms. Intensely detailed combat scenes highlight the heroes' skills and their powerful opponents, as even Zaknafein and Wulfgar struggle while confronting demons. In the midst of research for an upcoming battle against a demon, the powerful drow psionicist Kimmuriel discovers information that could tear core beliefs of drow society apart, leading to a stunning conclusion."

Publisher's Weekly Review:
"The exhilarating conclusion to Salvatore's Generations trilogy (after Boundless) illustrates the power of family, both born and chosen. When dark elf Zaknafein Do'Urden, weapon master of House Do'Urden, becomes a father, he's determined to keep his son, Drizzt, the hero of Salvatore's Forgotten Realms series, from being corrupted by Drizzt's evil mother and the hate-driven underground society of Menzonberranzan. But when Zaknafein grows afraid that his enemies will use Drizzt to get to him, he leaves Drizzt in order to keep him safe. Jumping forward centuries, Salvatore shows the long-lasting consequences of choices made by both Zaknafein and Drizzt. Drizzt's wife, Catti-Brie, is about to have a child, and the family she's created with friends and loved ones from all different races of supernatural beings are in the midst of their most fearsome battle yet against the powers of the underworld. The question of Drizzt's survival will be on the minds of all returning readers, and Salvatore expertly draws out the suspense en route to an ending that is sure to satisfy series fans. Amid epic sword and sorcery clashes, Salvatore makes a powerful case for love and compassion conquering even the strongest of evils. Fans will be sad to see this fantastic series end.
