Publisher's Summary

This second book in New York Times best-selling author R. A. Salvatore’s all-new trilogy - full of swordplay, danger, and imaginative thrills - features one of fantasy’s most beloved and enduring characters, Drizzt Do’Urden.

Split between time and two worlds, Zaknafein had always been conflicted. That inner turmoil was magnified by his inferior position as a male dark elf in the matriarchal drow society. Only his status as one of the greatest warriors - as well as his friendship with the mercenary Jarlaxle - kept him sane. When he finally perished, he was content knowing he left behind a legacy as substantial as his son, Drizzt.

Except...someone isn’t ready for Zaknafein to be dead. And now he’s back, hundreds of years later, in a world he doesn’t recognize. His son’s companions are not the prideful - and bigoted - males the drow warrior was accustomed to in his previous life. Drizzt’s circle includes dwarves, elves, and, perhaps worst of all, a human wife.

Struggling to navigate this transformed new world, Zaknafein realizes that some things have not changed: the threat of demons and the machinations of a drow matron no longer content with her family’s position in the ranks of Houses.

Though he has been displaced in time, Zaknafein is still a warrior. And no matter what prejudices he must overcome, he knows he will do his duty and fight by Drizzt’s side to stem the tide of darkness that threatens the Realms.

Sick of cliffhanger endings

Wait for the 3rd book to come out before getting this one. This is classic Salvatore. The best parts of this are the flashbacks. Everything else is all too typical of a 2nd book in a trilogy for Salvatore. Someone is presumed dead or close to death(check), the hero's got sucker punched; overrun by vast forces and never quite recovered(check). I'm sick of the way he writes Wulgar now. If you want to kill him then do it but give us the old Wulfgar back for a whole book because this one is a meek turd whose hammer can barely blast a single target where it used to cause pure devastation. He's flirting with the Goku paradigm more and more pertaining to Drizzt. It's getting to the point that Drizzt will have to fight gods to get a challenging fight because of the opponent's and abilities he pulls out of his butt. Regis...well one book hes a walking do it all, the next he just runs along forgetting all the skills and potions he keeps but I'm sure he'll remember next book *facepalm*. Enough with the cliffhangers...I'm sick of having to wait years for a book to come out just because an editor said to cut it off there. Now I get to spend however long it takes with a cloud over my head anytime I think of these characters. Seriously...I'm sick of Drow machinations that are so predictable from people who are supposed to be chaotic.

Amazing

He can not release these books fast enough. Constantly I think about these books. The world he brings me into is one I never want to leave. Never stop writing about Drizzt.

The last Drizzt book I will ever buy

I have bought every Drizzt book to date over the years and I’m sad to say I’m done. This book is maybe 1/3 of a book. As I’m typing this there might be spoilers. I will say that I Love the Drizzt character but this books are horrendous.

- It starts off I’m what would be at least Chapter 5 for any other full book.

- The rest of the book is nothing but overly detailed fights with no explanation of why anything in the main plot is happening or the books supposed subplots.

- The climax of the book, the big bad monsters were anticlimactic and the final showdown between Drizzt and the big bad unstoppable golem consisted of Drizzt literally running from it for multiple chapters. Then ending in the lay 2 minutes of the book.

- I feel ripped off and left without any explanation of anything or even an ending. It’s not even a cliffhanger. The book just stops.

I will be asking for my money back and am sadly done with these books. I love Drizzt and want more but refuse to support garbage writing like this.

Action, Adventure and Drizzt

This book delivers. Some reviewers say shallow, short and barebones plot, but it reads more like a game of thrones episode with pre established plots and intertwining story arcs. If you've invested any time with Drizzt's other books you'll get more than expected. This is another excellent addition.

Loads of action and in lieu of lingering on story subtleties, it seems more streamlined than past books' at times meandering pace. The 2nd act in Menzo gives us some long awaited juicy context to Zak and Jarlaxle's friendship and history. The trilogy arc is fleshed out, hints at coming conflicts in the third book without gutting this one or making its plot seem trivial filler.

Victor Bevine does his usual best and we couldn't imagine a better narrator for the series at this point.

There could be more. Could always be. Boundless delivers on enough fronts, all cylinders firing, that Salvatore can be forgiven for not pandering 'enough' to fans' favorite characters; there are more of them than in the original trilogies, after all. Due time.

Economic writing leading from one pivotal scene to the next, and a fight around every corner. Close your eyes in those fights and you can really appreciate how far Salvatore's come in combat choreography, picturing it vividly, which is emphasized especially in Boundless. It makes anticipating the final book of the trilogy, with its inevitably grander combat scenes, all the sweeter.

Just get the book, it's Drizzt.

R.A. Salvatore once again 13 hrs 3 mins of pure perfection!!!!!

A great continuous tale that brings light on the life of Drizzt father before he gave his own life for his son. A tale we have been long waiting for, what was life in the underdark for Drizzts father before drizzt was born. As for the main story, it is absolutely an intense riveting story that leaves you wanting for it not to end. And of course R.A. Salvatore leaves you hanging at the end with lots of questions of what's next for are separated hero's journey through a land inbeted in chaos and strife. Review by customer Ronald David Kennedy

Disappointing and Nonsensical

One of the most muddled fragmented disjointed nonsensical books ever written. A real letdown. Also a terrible ending. Definitely recommend skipping this one (note: Drizzt is not the main character in this book; he turns up briefly in 3 chapters).
Victor's narration was superb, as usual.
