I immensely liked the Dark Elf Trilogy and pretty much everything with Artemis Entreri. The later series where Artemis had to adjust to being an aging human assassin were really pretty good IMO. His reflexes had dulled considerably with age but he was able to make up for it with wisdom that came along with it.

I hope this one is a bit more upbeat than the last few. They had their glimmers but he seemed to lose a lot of the fun and swashbuckling feel the older books had. I for one hope some goofy dwarves accompany Drizz't Time Bandits style.

If this is going to be set across time, with flashbacks or part of the story taking place in Drizzt's father's youth, I wonder if he'll try to evoke the feel of AD&D for those stories rather than the more modern rule sets - with powerful spellcasters, etc...

This is the first I've heard; say what you will about Driz'zt, but WotC getting an outsourced partner for new novels is big.

Exactly, even if you don't like Drizzt, this is awesome news! I wonder what other writers they will tap.

This is WAY, WAY, WAY bigger news then MGTF which is small patatoes compared to the return of the novel line.

I read almost all the Drizzt books. I think I stopped before Archmage, in part because I find books set heavily in Drow society to be my least favorite ones.

So I'll probably skip this one.

That being said I'm glad they are making new books! I look forward to more!

Which were those Artemis ones, thanks?

The way WotC kept talking about the novel plans was like they were waiting for a deal to go through before talking openly.

And working with the largest publisher in the world us a coup.

R.A. Salvatore reveals the Underdark anew through the eyes of Zaknafein and Jarlaxle - an introduction to the darkness that offers a fresh view of the opportunities to be found in the shadows and an intriguing prelude to the intriguing escapes that lie ahead in the modern-day Forgotten Realms. Here, a father and his son are reunited and embark on adventures that parallel the trials of centuries long past as the friends of old are joined by Drizzt, Hero of the North, trained by Grandmaster Kane in the ways of the monk.

It would be fun to see Zaknafein trying to adjust to life on the surface (or indeed in Menzoberanzan) so long after his death. It would also be amusing to see him not be as "good" as Drizzt remembers ;)

I remember liking the Drizzt books, I don't know if they aged well, it's been a while. BUT his Demonwars trilogy... The second book I started skipping sections, something I almost never do! But eventually I actually closed the book before I finished it "No more!", something I have never intentionally done with books I intend to read and have never done since. And I read a LOT, some of it not good, but this was painful to read... And I've read plays in old English...

Wait, he's a monk now, too?

<swoon> Oh Drizzles, is there nothing you can't do?

You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become a multiclass character.

This is the exact same release date as the as-yet-unnamed D&D hardcover adventure, codenamed "Broadway". Makes me think the novel and adventure will be tied together in some way; perhaps dealing with the aftermath of the demonic incursions from the Out of the Abyss storyline.

I kind of dropped out of the Drizzt books after a certain point and probably won't get this one but if this is the first of more D&D novels in general, I'm pleased.

Call me if they get Erin Evans to write more Farideh books...!

Just because I love me some Abercrombie ,George R.R. Martain, Lawrence and all the rest doesn't mean I don't have a spot for Salvatore on my shelf.

Amen... I'm in the same boat. There's a lot of elitist snobbishness going on here. I love Salvatore's Realms novels. Now, if only Paul S. Kemp would come back with some new Erevis Cale stories...
