What can I say about this book?, the mere fact of being a book written by Salvatore and about Drizzt Do'Urden already makes it a very excellent novel, the story is superb as usually, taking unexpected turns, as always, but this time Salvatore has included something that has made the book even better, half the book is from the point of view of Drizzt's most hatred enemy: Artemis Entreri, he writes about how's Entreri's life after the last time he battled Drizzt and the things that happen when he returns to Calimport, the place where he's most feared.
Though I love to read about Drizzt, it was even more interesting to read about Entreri, learn about the way he thinks, how Drizzt has changed his life, and a very special surprise almost at the end of the book!
In sum, this is one of the best FR books, and everybody who likes Dungeons & Dragons should read it!.
