    Very short, and it was just good enough that I liked it without getting forced to dive into the rabbit hole of fifty other books by this author.

    I m going to let this stand as my review for all three books I enjoyed them and it was really neat seeing a different angle on stories I m already familiar with To clarify what I mean, this story follows a young boy and throughout his adventures, he crosses paths with Drizzt many times This takes place during the time that he and the gang are hunting down Regis and Artemis Entreri You get to see bits and pieces of that same adventure through the lens of this young boy As far as I m aware, t I m going to let this stand as my review for all three books I enjoyed them and it was really neat seeing a different angle on stories I m already familiar with To clarify what I mean, this story follows a young boy and throughout his adventures, he crosses paths with Drizzt many times This takes place during the time that he and the gang are hunting down Regis and Artemis Entreri You get to see bits and pieces of that same adventure through the lens of this young boy As far as I m aware, this is the first time that Geno has had a hand in this world I think it s a good starting point for him He gets to dip a toe without having the inevitable comparison of his version of the characters with his fathers That does happen to an extent, though I don t know how much his father was involved, but the few characters that we re all familiar with, just don t really seem like themselves Again, it s well written, they just come off as, off from their normal personality Especially Captain Deudermont who is the most heavily featured of all the standard cast of characters His character seems most out of place based on what I know of him.There were only a couple of things that really stood out to me as errors One is when one of the books has a guard and an equine It s not the main equine of the story, whom I don t have a problem with, but just a regular horse that doesn t act in the manner of any horse I ve ever been around Overall, though, it was a good section of books to add to this series It let s Geno dip his toe in these waters without sullying the main characters I m happy that this was a side series They re also about half the length of the main books so they re also a quick read I also like some of the other realistic parts, such as not having a young child be a master swordsman, even if they receive some training Too often characters are made natural savants instead of having to struggle to gain mastery I think that s muchrelateable

    The book was very interesting but the story was not very easy to understand the problem is that it starts with the main character telling his story to a pirate of how he was running but after 20 chapters the main character decided to start his story when he was born and then it was very confusing what time the story was taking place but after all it ended very well

    I really liked this book It is fantasy set in medieval times in a different universe One of the things I didn t like so much was that the writing wasn t that good The book is structured in a very interesting fashion it started with the main character being interrogated by a pirate captain and then he tells the captain a story, then he tells the captain the story leading up to the original story, and then he tells him the story that takes place after the original story I think this structure I really liked this book It is fantasy set in medieval times in a different universe One of the things I didn t like so much was that the writing wasn t that good The book is structured in a very interesting fashion it started with the main character being interrogated by a pirate captain and then he tells the captain a story, then he tells the captain the story leading up to the original story, and then he tells him the story that takes place after the original story I think this structure was an interesting choice, and the authors did a pretty good job of the strange structure but it was a little bit hard to follow One thing I enjoyed about the book is that this author has written countless other books in this same world with various characters and plot lines but this book was much less dense and you didn t need to have read ALL of the other books to understand this one

    I have always loved R A Salvatore s novels, especially those with Drizzt Do Urden This novel brought me back the familiar characters of those stories Maimun is an orphan who is taken care of by Perrault, a fatherly figure who is also his guardian Through the frame story Maimun is sharing, we learn how he came in possession of a Stone of Tymora and of his adventures with Asbeel, a demon who wants the stone The novel ends with a cliffhanger, definitely making me want to read the next novel o I have always loved R A Salvatore s novels, especially those with Drizzt Do Urden This novel brought me back the familiar characters of those stories Maimun is an orphan who is taken care of by Perrault, a fatherly figure who is also his guardian Through the frame story Maimun is sharing, we learn how he came in possession of a Stone of Tymora and of his adventures with Asbeel, a demon who wants the stone The novel ends with a cliffhanger, definitely making me want to read the next novel of the trilogy I especially enjoyed how this story fit in with Drizzt s tale of rescuing his halfling friend Regis

    I grew up reading Salvatore He was the very writer that got me hooked on Fantasy, on worlds and characters beyond on own Despite reading much criticism about his writing technique, I would always standfast that he is a great writer who stirs imagination This book is garbage I do not believe it was actually written by R.A Salvatore There is not a single redeeming quality about it It felt like it was written by a 10 year old who does not know how to write If not for the name on it, no dece I grew up reading Salvatore He was the very writer that got me hooked on Fantasy, on worlds and characters beyond on own Despite reading much criticism about his writing technique, I would always standfast that he is a great writer who stirs imagination This book is garbage I do not believe it was actually written by R.A Salvatore There is not a single redeeming quality about it It felt like it was written by a 10 year old who does not know how to write If not for the name on it, no decent publisher would even consider it

    A bit middle of the road for Salvatore s books, this one does well in developing the new character of Maimun, although it fails to tell it in a simple, linear fashion The action scenes are on par for his other work, which is to say, they re some of the better parts of the book Unfortunately, the book does a bad job explaining why Asbeel is the way he is And the ending isn t much of an ending, either thus this trilogy is really one long story.

  8. says:

    A fun start to a new trilogy that really feels fresh and fun for a Salvatore series The cameos by well known characters seem a little forced and unnecessary as the main characters of the book are interesting enough.

  9. says:

    I don t think I would ve like this book much if it wasn t connected to Legend of Drizzt, but because it is and you see Drizzt and his companions in smallScenes it makes this book a fun read It feels jumpy at parts and lacks detail, but it is meant to be a simpler read and it s still enjoyable.
