Description

The pall that had descended over the North is gone, and a new day has dawned on a victorious Mithral Hall, but no matter how bright things seem on the surface, Drizzt and his companions know that what lurks just under their feet remains steeped in evil and charged with unimaginable power. The dark elves of Menzoberranzan, including the powerful Archmage Gromph, aren't done with Drizzt yet. And consumed by their own power struggles, feeling backed into a corner, the drow may just be desperate enough to call on demonic forces from the deepest reaches of the Abyss and unleash a disaster even the Underdark could never have prepared for. Archmage has everything Drizzt's fans crave: action, adventure, characters that resonate with equal measures of warrior spirit and deep compassion, and no shortage of wicked dark elves!

Entertaining. Makes me want tl roll some dice

I got this book as a Daily Deal offer. I'm glad I took a chance. I much prefer Adult Fiction fantasy (RR Martin, Rothfuss, Erickson, even Sanderson), but reviews are pretty good. Why not? Good decision.
This book is excellent at continuing to flesh out Faerun, and includes some scenes on other planes. It has all of the things I love with Fantasy RPGs - goal-oriented action, real(istic) characters, and fantastic monsters and magic.
When I play D&D, I plod through the 'plot", eagerly anticipating the next encounter. This book taught me the utility of good RPG intrigue. The story has plenty of encounters (a few chapters are straight-up battles), but packs the tale with politics/maneuvering by demons, gods, wizards, and kings. Such a story is at risk of being overwhelmed by character motivations and "Historical" events. Rather, 'Archmage' has a great pace, not bogged down with detail.

The biggest drawback is all of the names and places...maybe not so great if you're not familiar with the Forgotten Realms...but Salvatore makes a relatively standard quest plot breathe.

Victor Bevine is a good reader, though nothing special. Professional performance with only a couple of annoying accent choices (Balors shouldn't sound retarded).

I give this book a solid 4.5 stars out of 5. I will be continuing this series.

Its about time

I almost gave up on Salavatore. I really hated the whole Neverwinter plot line with Dahlia and Drizzt. Drizzt was so filled with bitter angst that I felt like I was reading the Twilight saga. It was pointless and small minded and absolutely not up to the brilliance Salvatore has shown in the past. In the last series where the companions of the hall are reborn, there was some semblance of normalcy brought back to his writing. It's almost like Wizards of the Coast sat him down and said..."look man, we aren't sure what you've been smoking but we really need you to get back to basics because that is what the people want"

So he wrote what we wanted and he wrote it well.

Archmage hails absolutely back to the brilliance Salvatore is known for and is quite literally his finest novel since Homeland which is his best work. This is not to be missed and I'm so glad Salvatore is back.

Hard to believe Salvatore can keep pulling it off!

Great storytelling and excellent action scenes! I liked the complex development of relationships between all of my favorite characters from previous books in the series. If you are a follower of this series you will be very pleased with how good this one is. If you are new to this series, hold on, you are in for a ride.

So disappointed.

About as fun as reading congressional archives. Dritz is barely a minor character at best. The political intrigue is between unlikeable faction. There are few key characters to even vaguely relate to. Go back to the earliest stories and leave this alone.

I don't get it

I have always enjoyed Salvatore's writings, but this one was bizarre. I think the story in his head was good, but it did not make it to paper. I started it several times, but could not understand where he was taking it. It was also very dark.

Exceptional

R. A. Salvatore always creates such lovely words and stories to contain them in, and this book was no exception to that rule.

It's like heroine - more please

What else could R A give to us? Arch mage - top dog - maybe this one will complete a characters life's - ha funny that will only happen when they die - yet do they die? No

What a disappointment

What would have made Archmage better?

After an extremely confusing and painfully boring 3 hours of listening I gave up. This book has virtually no plot line, even less character development and a constant introduction of new characters and historical events that have no connection, rhyme or reason. I say, save time and money and just move on to having your teeth drilled if you want to be punished.
