Summary The Companions R.A. Salvatore è 8 review Free download ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF è R.A. Salvatore By his side throughout his early life the friends now known as the Companions of the Hall Meanwhile the first stirrings of the Sundering begin. It s been a very long time since I last read a Drizzt Do Urden novel much less anything set in the Forgotten Realms so I was excited about the opportunity to reacuaint myself with RA Salvatore s heroic dark elf and find out how his companions fared Sadly I should have either saved myself the trouble or taken the time to investigate what The Sundering is all about Basically The Sundering is the story of giant reboot designed to shoehorn existing characters and settings into a simplified set of 5th edition rules to be dubbed DD Next The Companions is the first book of that rebootI don t like rebootsAs the story begins Drizzt s friends all of whom are deceased find themselves reincarnated with all of their memories intact and a shared purpose to meet again and resume their companionship Um yeah Silliness aside the resurrection of Wulfgar is probably the last thing I remember of Forgotten Realms and that mistake is a large part of what caused me to drift away So to multiply that mistake with the likes of Regis Cattie brie and Bruenor is to ensure the series gets off to a rocky start It felt like a Terry Goodkind like attempt to artifically extend a series except he does it by taking away powers and memories whereas Salvatore does it by giving them back As for Drizzt he s of a framing device and less of a character here which is a shame because he s always been the most interesting of the lotSo basically what we get here are three heroes trapped in the bodies of children forced to pretend they don t know or remember things that should be impossible It s an awkward kind of coming of age story and while it does have its interesting moments it all feels very scattered which is not surprising when you re following multiple characters across two decades There are some snippets of battle scenes and some other adventures that evoked memories of earlier books like The Crystal Shard but it somehow all feels artificial What s there was no doubt no tension and no real suspense as to whether they would all make it to their eventual rendezvous not to mention a climax that just falls flatI could be wrong and my reading may be colored by the end goal of The Sundering but it all felt like a story Salvatore was told he had to provide not an adventure he wanted to write It s not necessarily a bad book die hard readers of Forgotten Realms will likely enjoy it but for me it lacked the magic and the mystery I remembered from my original adventures with Drizzt Knowing what I know now about The Sundering I doubt I ll continue with the series Originally reviewed at Beauty in Ruins

Salvatore Ro Drizzt into a new era of the Forgotten Realms As Drizzt's fate hangs in the balance he reflects on the lives of the trusted allies who stood. While you do not need to have read RA Salvatore s earlier Forgotten Realms books to enjoy this book my familiarity with the characters certainly didn t hurt Having recently read the Icewind Dale Trilogy the first books that feature the Companions of the Hall made me that much invested in the long and difficult journeys Catti brie Bruenor and Regis faced to return to Bruenor s Climb and help their friend DrizztWhile all three plot lines were interesting enough in their own ways the highlight was Regis s rebirth as a street urchin and his subseuent rise to prominence closely followed by Bruenor s adjustment from being King of Mithril Hall to being reborn as an indistinguishable dwarf lad Catti brie s rebirth and journey from magical teacher to magical teacher was the least compelling of the threeNote two things going into this book First despite Drizzt and Guenhwyvar being on the cover this is a tale of Catti brie Bruenor and Regis and Drizzt only appears briefly at the beginning and end of the book Secondly the story leaves off with a lot of unresolved threads which will be picked up after the completion of the Sundering series a six book six author major story event in Forgotten Realms in Night of the Hunter which is expected to come out in March of 2014Full disclosure I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a review

Summary The Companions R.A. Salvatore è 8 review Free download ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF è R.A. Salvatore This latest installment in New York Times best selling author RA Salvatore's beloved fantasy saga The Companions moves Salvatore's signature he. EDIT 1692015 I m sick and tired of trolls stamping their feet and whining about how I should have read the first twenty four books so let me reiterate The Companions was marketed as the first in a series Second time in case you didn t hear The Companions was marketed as the first in a series Once for luckThe Companions was marketed as the first in a series When I clicked on the title on Netgalley it was marked as The Sundering 1 I had not been in contact with the author s other works It wasn t until I got the ARC and trundled onto Goodreads to shelf it that I realized my mistake Blame the marketing team blame the publisher Hell blame the Easter bunny for all I care But stop informing me I should have read the other books firstSecond point and I m really regretting identifying myself as a Fantasy newbie cease your if you don t like fantasy why are you reading it comments It s circular reasoning If I don t read it how will I know if I ll like it I don t even know why some of you think I hate Fantasy If your answer is Lord of the Rings I invite you to get your elitist ass out of my space I enjoy Fantasy I m picky because I enjoy Fantasy that s thatAlso I use gifs in my reviews Always have always will Deal with itBack to our originally scheduled programDNF at 29%I have never not finished an ARC before and I feel terribly guilty about it But I just cannot continue on with this mess of a book It s confusing and the writing is very sketchyI think part of the problem of why I was confused was because I m not a fantasy genre veteran I adore A Game of Thrones and Harry Potter but I ve never read Lord of the RingsYes I know I m horribly ashamed of myselfPlus I ve had a deep mistrust of YA fantasy books since Throne of Glass so I rarely touch any of it As a result I don t know all the fantastical creatures this book keeps throwing at me What is an orc I know the word but I can t attach an image to it Are they like the Urgals in EragonOr are they like the trolls in Harry PotterSeriously I need to know these thingsAnother part of the problem was probably because this book is the 24th book in the Legend of Drizzt series I picked it up expecting it to be the first book of The Sundering which is why I felt swamped by all these characters and events I was supposed to be well acuainted with But even if this book is the first in a spin off series that s what I assume anyway it is no excuse not to provide a back story I mean look at what Julie Kagawa did with The Lost Prince It was based on her Iron Fey series but I m fairly confident that newcomers can just pick up The Lost Prince without having read the original series and still walk away with a moderate understanding of how things work in the Nevernever I had no idea what the hell was going on within this book and when I did I couldn t bring myself to care because I was not invested in these charactersAlso the character names I came across a character called Arrr I kid you notYou cannot expect me to take a character seriously when his name reminds me of piratesOkay maybe not these kinds of piratesEh close enoughAnyways I strongly recommend that you read this series from the beginning if you re interested But honestly with this level of writingI highly doubt it would make much of a difference ARC received from Netgalley
