    1. ARC provided by NetGalley and Wizards of the coast for an honest review:Anyone who has read my reviews should know that I have been reading fantasy novels for 23 years and started to read Dungeons and Dragons/Forgotten realms books in 1992 when TSR still was in existence. I have read the majority of the Realms novels along with Dragonlance, Ravenloft, Dark sun and some other offshoot novel worlds WOTC/TSR owned, so I would say I am well versed in the setting, world, and the current events going [...]


    2. In The Companions R. A. Salvatore brought Drizzt’s old friends The Companions of the Hall back to life. He did this in an amazing original way. Our heroes were not simply resurrected, instead they were given the chance to come back as newborn children. When they were born they had all of their memories of their past life and were fully conscious of this from the moment of birth. The book followed the first twenty-one years of the new lives of Cattie-Brie, Bruennor, and Regis as they grow and d [...]


    3. The Companions, the previous book featuring Drizzt and the Companions of the Hall -- although it almost exclusively followed Bruenor, Catti-Brie and Regis, and not Drizzt or Wulfgar -- set-up this book up nicely, reuniting Drizzt and his closest friends, now resurrected into new, nearly identical bodies.This book starts off with the protagonists in Icewind Dale, with the group's immediate goal of travelling to the abandoned dwarf stronghold of Gauntlgrym to bring peace to the now-vampiric Thibbl [...]


    4. ARC Net Galley copy. Best Salvatore book in years! I have felt a little blah over the past few dark elves books but this one really blew my mind. I can hardly believe everything Salvatore has crammed into this one book. I have read every book published in the Forgotten Realms and I can say this brings me back to the golden age of Realms books. No spoilers but all of our favorite characters return and it feels a lot more thought out than the Companions did. Much more developed plot as a stand alo [...]


    5. Night of the Hunter is the beginning of a new series called the Companion Codex and just like all the other series that Wizards has done with R.A.Salvatore this one is seriously good. There is plenty here, back to my favorite Underdark climes and the companionship of old friends. This has got to be one of the best books of R.A.Salvatore’s I’ve read. The return to all things Drizzt Do’Urden has been a wonderful journey. The book is incredible and anyone who has ever read a book about the el [...]


    6. (Signed up just to share this)I started reading R.A. Salvador over a decade ago, and it was by reading his collective works that I discovered both my love of fantasy and tabletop roleplay. But the advent of 4th edition and the hand it dealt to writers in this setting drastically changed my opinion of the Forgotten realms in generalThat saidWell many people are calling R.A. Salvator's latest works one of his best to date, I couldn't disagree more. Well it has all of his usual style and quality, l [...]


    7. Overall I liked this book. There are parts that I found boring like the parts in Menzoberranza. Mainly because of the repetition that kept happening. This was mainly the same things had to be repeated to different characters over and over again. The Drow are the most treacherous and manipulative race and it is so interwoven into their Menzoberranzan society it is hard to keep up with everything but this does not mean that we need a recap every time the book goes to Menzoberranza. That was my onl [...]


    8. By way of introduction, I must say that Wizards of the Coast kindly sent me an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, and that I am a native Spanish speaker, reason why I ask the reader to excuse any mistakes that may be found in this review. In a few words, I can say that the book is fun to read, and I do think that entertainment is an important part of literature. On the other hand, it is quite well written, and the depiction of different characters is brilliant: Drizzt i [...]


    9. I received my copy from NetGalley and Wizards of the Coast in exchange for an honest review.Night of the Hunter immediately follows the plots of both The Last Threshold and The Companions. The Companions of the Hall have now been restored to life by nature goddess Mielikki in order to help Drizzt protect himself from the wrath of demon goddess Lolth. However, despite this being a "Drizzt book" the vast majority of the plot centers around the schemes of the devious drow. As drow fan I was pleased [...]


    10. An ARC from NetGalley. R.A. Salvatore spins Lolth's webs himself in this new and 25th Drizzt novel. The Companions of the Hall are back together, yet with all the added complexity of their "new identities" from "The Companions". Salvatore never ceased to keep my attention throughout the whole novel and I would rank it as one of his best to date. Certainly, the future of Drizzt and friends is now set on a path that is so multi-faceted, the events of this book should keep them going for quite a wh [...]


    11. Da Capo Al Fine (And again from the beginning)May contain spoilers from the previous Drizzt novels with referring back to them!I gave it *** because at least it had some more Drizzt in it than The Companions (which actually got a ** from me). Salvatore has had his and Drizzt's ups and downs in the long history of this novel. This is definately a down in my opinion. 'Best book of Salvatore ever' - I read all over the net, but I have to disagree. For the gods' sake, nobody read Homeland or The Leg [...]


    12. True Rating is 3.5 of 5I loved The Sundering, which was the book preceding this in which all of Drizzt’s companions returned to him. For those that haven’t read the incredibly long standing series this won’t be relevant, but for me it was a fantastic book. Throughout the early series Drizzt traveled and adventured with the Companions of the Hall. This included his wife, her adopted father, adopted brother and a Halfling. There were more here and there but the stories focused on those compa [...]


    13. This review originally appeared on my blog, Leeanna.==NIGHT OF THE HUNTER sends Drizzt and the Companions of the Hall back to Gauntlgrym to rescue Bruenor’s old companion, Pwent, from the curse of vampirism. Thanks to the Sundering, as well as the intervention of Drizzt’s goddess Mielikki, Bruenor, Catti-brie, Regis, and Wulfgar are back in Drizzt’s life.It’s not necessary to have read THE COMPANIONS to understand NIGHT OF THE HUNTER. THE COMPANIONS, book one of the Sundering series, tel [...]


    14. Trying to figure out what order these books are meant to be read in without referring to is nearly impossible. As far as I can tell, this is book 1 of the Companion Codex (which doesn't tell me how it relates to the previous book, the Companions) but the Companions was book 1 of the The Sundering . . . so is this book 2 of the Sundering? No idea.Whatever, it's the Legend of Drizzt #25.This book is classic Salvatore and I mean that in the purest and most literal interpretation possible. The plot [...]


    15. Indeed, my review, for indeed, this is my review. Eesh.Going to go against the grain on this one. I'd actually give it 2.5 but, since I can't, I'm definitely not rounding up. I loved this series when I was 14 or 15, when I found The Crystal Shard. However, as time passed and my preferences changed, I found that I liked the series less and less. The last time I read an R.A. Salvatore book was The Cleric Quintet and I can't say that I enjoyed it all that much. However, I heard that this reboot was [...]


    16. Having never read the previous books in this series, I am likely to be the last reviewer that a fan would wish to consult before reading/purchasing this book. However, if you are like me and picked this book up based on a friend's recommendation and its blurb without having read any of the previous books, I urge caution before your purchase.This books appears to be a mixture of ‘rehashing’ previous books story-lines and a revival of the series in general.There was so much going on between al [...]


    17. This is Book 1 in the Companions Codex from R.A. Salvatore, one of the best Forgotten Realms authors. The story continues off where The Companions (The Sundering Book 1) ends. The Drow of Menzoberranzan have taken full control of the ancient Dwarven homeland of Gauntlgrym and are making into their own city and another center of power for them. There are plot galore within the Drow houses as they vie for more power withing their hierarchy. Artemis Entreri is back and still traveling with the comp [...]


    18. Oh, boy. So after a few years of no Drizzt, I heard there was a reboot that brought back the old characters who ahd been killed off in unsatisfying, anticlimactic ways in the Ghost King. Well, it's a litte stupd to resurrect the dead, but whatever, I used to love Drizzt so much I'll give it a try.The second chapter is a treatise on how all orcs, goblin, etc. are jsut evil because God said so and it's ok to kill them without any remorse or regret. How convenient for our heroes! No more moral conu [...]


    19. Opening paragraph: SO MUCH BLOOD.Everywhere, blood.It followed Doum’wielle wherever she traveled. She saw it on her silvery skin, skin that spoke of her mixed elf and drow heritage. It followed her in her dreams, each night, every night. She saw it on the footprints she left in the snow. She saw it on her keen-edged sword—yes, on the sword most of all.Yes, that's a pretty awesome opening sequence that quickly fell into stale recollections of resurrected characters that turned the first half [...]


    20. Night of the Hunter finds The Companions, new and improved, on a new quest to save Pwent who is now a vampire and restore him to his old self. There are a lot of threads going: the Gauntlygrym is now house to the Drow, the drow and their politics, the orcs and the dwarves, and all the obstacles the Companions have to go through to get to Gauntlygrym.The world-building is easy to imagine and described in vivid detail. The politics, well, they take a little more thought and I kind of lost interest [...]


    21. I loved the added complexity given to the old characters in this novel. I'd love to go in depth but don't want to throw any spoilers out there. This is by far one of Salvatore's best books in years and I look forward to his sequal to this book. If the authors of the rest of the Sundering novels provide even half as good a story as Salvatore's start has it will be one of the best, if not THE best, multi-author story arcs ever.


    22. Might be that I'm unfair reading a middel book in a fanatsy series, but I had trouble keeping up with events and characters


    23. Not horrible, but mostly more of the same by R.A. Salvatore--I could use an experimental romance novel from him or something at this point--it is all starting to feel so much the same


    24. Words like stellar, awesome, and amazing simply do not do this book justice. The is the MOST incredible Drizzt story I have ever read. Full review up soon.


    25. 25th book in this series, as I come up on my 30th (!) year of reading these stories. That's pretty amazing. I picked up the first one in the spring of 1988, The Crystal Shard. Loved it. For the most part, the series has been good to great. There were a few clunkers in there (The Spine of the World) and a few that have blown my socks off (The Legacy, The Ghost King). This one was particularly fun to read, as old characters are placed in novel situationsor new characters are placed in novel situat [...]


    26. Salvatore goes back to his Underdark roots in the dark elf city of Menzoberranzan in Night of the Hunter. There is no short supply of subterfuge and deception by the sinister dark elves. Simply put, lots of cool stuff happens in this book. By this point in Salvatore's Forgotten Realms series, comprised of over 30 novels, he has built a massive foundation for his characters and settings. Storylines are continuously carried over that originated from books several series earlier (i.e the sentient s [...]


    27. Night Of The Hunter is the first book of the ‘Companions Codex’ and book twenty-five in the legend of one of the most enduring heroes of the Forgotten Realms, Drizzt Do’Urden. In cracking open the cover, there is the weight of more than twenty-four previous books looking over the reader’s shoulder. The legend of Drizzt also touches two side series, ‘The Sell Swords’ and ‘The Cleric Quintet’, and directly impacts the multi-author series, ‘War of The Spider Queen’. I mention th [...]


    28. There is a ton of story and ultimately that ended up being both a blessing and a curse. The scope of the project is vast and leaves a ton of potential for further novels but there were several execution errors that you would expect to see in a popcorn type summer movie but not a polished novel. There was clearly an agenda with this novel and I love where it is leading but several story elements (I won't mention them due to story spoilers) and transitions were executed very poorly. The good news [...]


    29. Drizzt's adventures continue, now with the fabled Companions of the Hall reincarnated and reunited. Much of this book concerns the machinations of the drow and takes place in the Underdark, which admittedly is not my favorite of settings. Gauntlygrym once again features prominently in the story, and I am honestly looking forward to a change of pace and scenery. It is good to see the heroes back together again, with a carefree (as opposed to brooding) Wulfgar and a much more competent and confide [...]


    30. I know that the writing of this review probably won’t change anyone’s opinion on the Drizzt series. You’ve either read all of the 20ish other Drizzt books and you are already planning on reading this one or you haven’t read them and in that case you need to stop reading this review and go pick up the the first book of the first trilogy called Homeland. I guess you could have picked up the series because of the Sundering series that recently came out but if you are then you are really mis [...]
