I just finished reading the second book of this year of reading, The Companions by R.A. Salvatore, the first book of The Sundering, a multiple author story set in the magical land of Faerûn.
In this first novel, and to much to my delight, we see some of my favorite fantastic characters, part of the Companions of the Hall, wake up in a magical forest, and become appointed by the goddess Mielikki to come back from their rest, and walk the treacherous paths leading to the white tundra knowed as the Icewind Dale.
This with the purpose of reuniting, after a century of absence, with the legendary drow ranger, Drizzt Do’Urden.
I won’t give more away, but all I can say is that the book made me cry at the end, and Catti-brie kick even more ass.
I recommend you grab all of the Legend of Drizzt saga, one of the best fantasy series ever written.
I am off to read, and try to balance my reading schedule, because I have fallen behind.
