The Companions Free read ß PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free 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. The Companions by RA Salvatore is the first book in a new series from Forgotten Realms called The Sundering Each book is penned by a different author and will explore the events of the Sundering from various points of view Salvatore s entry continues the story of Drizzt Do Urden and the title is a call to hearts or to be slightly or less dramatic an answer to prayersThe book opens with a glimpse of Drizzt whose fate at the end of The Last Threshold Book XXIII Neverwinter Saga Book IV was uncertain He is at Bruenor s Climb a lone mountain in the middle of Icewind Dale that is meaningful to the Companions The peak has marked many beginnings We continue to hear from Drizzt throughout the novel in the usual series of thought provoking journal entries I ve come to think of them as letters to the reader and those included in The Companions are amongst the most stirring He reflects on his life and the choices he has made his friends and companions the meaning of love honour and loyalty There is a sense Drizzt is preparing himself for the inevitable and that urgency underscores the journeys of the Companions as they embark on a uest unlike any otherYes I said the CompanionsRA Salvatore and Wizards of the Coast have been tight lipped when it comes revealing the actual plot of The Companions Considering the title it s not hard to understand whyBruenor Catti brie Regis Wulfgar and Drizzt are known as the Companions of the Hall Firm friends the dwarf king and his adopted daughter the halfling and the barbarian the dark elf and his astral panther Guenhwyvar adventured together for over twenty books until fate teased them apart one by one Wulfgar fell away first but not forever He returned a changed man and his journey for peace rivaled Drizzt s own Catti brie and Regis were victims of the Spellplague and Bruenor fell sealing the Great Primordial in Gauntlgrym The long lived dark elf Drizzt was left to mourn his companions and to make sense of the world they departedWhile Drizzt one of the most enduring fictional characters of our time is compelling on his own it is or was his companionship with Bruenor Catti brie Regis and Wulfgar that gave each adventure such emotional depth Representatives of different races philosophies and fighting styles these five formed a bond that was tested and tested again Together they proved that friendship honour loyalty and love could win out over all Sounds trite doesn t it It s not Such values are the core of any novel about companions who defeat the odds and Salvatore writes them very very wellI m not going to give away much about the plot I think the book deserves as little preparation from the reader as possible even if the title is full of promise Briefly the Companions meet again in Iruldoon a heaven created just for them by Meilikki and they are given a uest Drizzt needs them and they can choose to help him Such is Meilikki s gift to the drow she favours The Companions is utterly absorbing surprising and wonderful I have never read anything like it and I ve been reading RA Salvatore s books for years There are stories within the story threads of past and future The book can be taken as both a beginning and an ending It s an ode to Drizzt and the bond of friendship honour and loyalty It s about choices and interpretationI loved this book really loved it I had a difficult time putting it aside to deal with life I shed a tear at the dedication and than a few toward the end The Companions is everything a fan of Salvatore and the Legend of Drizzt could hope for and Written for and originally posted at SFCrowsnest

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
