From New York Times bestselling author R. A. Salvatore comes a new trilogy and adventure of Drizzt and fantasy's beloved characters from Dungeons & Dragons' Forgotten Realms.

After the settling dust of the demon uprising and two years of peace, rumblings from the Menzoberranzan drow have Jarlaxle nervous. Worried his allies may be pulled into a Civil War between the great Houses, he is eager to ensure Zaknafein is armed with weapons befitting his skill, including one in particular: Khazid'hea. A powerful artifact, the sword known as "Cutter" has started wars, corrupted its users, and spilled the blood of many, many people. Nonetheless--or maybe because of that--the rogue Jarlaxle and a small group of friends will go on an expedition looking for the weapon's last wielder, Doum'wielle, in the freezing north, for she may be the key to unlocking the sword's potential...and perhaps the key to preventing the bloodshed looming over the Underdark.

And as they explore the top of the world, Drizzt is on a journey of his own--both spiritual and physical. He wants to introduce his daughter Brie to Grandmaster Kane and the practices that have been so central to his beliefs. But, having only recently come back from true transcendence, the drow ranger is no longer sure what his beliefs mean anymore. He is on a path to determining the future, not just for his family, but perhaps the entire northlands of the Realms themselves.

Two different roads. On one, Jarlaxle and Zaknefein are on a quest to find pieces that could offer salvation to Menzoberranzan. On the other, Drizzt seeks answers that could offer salvation to not just his soul, but all souls.

And no matter the outcome of either journey, the Realms will never be the same again.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Salvatore launches The Way of the Drow trilogy, picking up a few years after the conclusion of the Drizzt: Generations trilogy (starting with Timeless, 2018). A full-fledged civil war is brewing in Menzoberranzan, resulting from the earlier actions of Drizzt Do'Urden and his allies. Drizzt's wife, the priestess Cattie-Brie, and his father, renowned weapons master Zaknafein, accompany rogue Jarlaxle to the far north, searching for Doum'wielle, the last wielder of Khazid'hea, a powerfully evil sword. They hope to form an alliance with Doum'wielle's family against Lolth, the chaotic goddess of the drow. In the frozen wasteland, they encounter a society that Jarlaxle has heard rumors of: drow who have never lived under Lolth's influence. Meanwhile, Drizzt returns to the Monastery of the Yellow Rose with his daughter, Brienne, to meditate on how his beliefs have changed after returning from transcendence. Salvatore turns the racial assumptions of the Forgotten Realms on end in this story, forcing his characters to confront their own biases in their hopes of forging a better world."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Salvatore returns to the world of the Drizzt: Generations series with the enjoyable epic fantasy that launches his Way of the Drow series, set almost two years after the defeat of demon hordes left the northern Sword Coast at peace. This respite gives dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden the chance to deepen his connection with his daughter, Brienne, by taking her to the Monastery of the Yellow Rose, the spiritual community that transformed his life. There, Drizzt overcame the curse of reasoning beings, which is an "unconscious bent toward some determined level of tension." His plan doesn't sit well with Catti-brie, his wife, who has a different theological perspective, but she consents to the plan after he agrees to give her a similar opportunity to influence their child. This plotline alternates with a more action-oriented one as mercenary Jarlaxle searches for a way to remove the malignancy from a magical sword called Khazid'hea. Salvatore manages to wrangle the extensive backstory to make this an accessible entry point for first-timers, and the superior characterizations that marked Salvatore's prior books are again in evidence. His many devoted fans have reason to anticipate the sequel. Agent: Lucas, Paul Janklow & Nesbit Assoc. (Aug.)"
