Publisher's Summary

R.A. Salvatore's New York Times best-selling tale of the dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden continues immediately on the heels of Rise of the King, with an expanding war and greater danger to the finally reunited Companions of the Hall.

Bloody war rages across the Forgotten Realms world in the third book of the Companions Codex, the latest series in R.A. Salvatore's New York Times best-selling saga of dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden.

In the evolving world of the Forgotten Realms setting, the Sundering has given way to months of cloud-cloaked darkness, and war rages under that oppressive sky. The orcs have broken a hard-fought treaty that's held, however tentatively, for a hundred years, and the time to settle old scores has devolved into an all-out brawl for control of the ancient realms of the North.

Deja vú.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Again the same old characters, it's the same history again and again. I'm tired, there is nothing new.

Could not stop listening!!!

What made the experience of listening to Vengeance of the Iron Dwarf the most enjoyable?

The whole Drizzt, Bruenor Cattie Wulfgar and Regis saga has had me hooked since I read the first book nearly 20 years ago

What was one of the most memorable moments of Vengeance of the Iron Dwarf?

The Big Fight

Which scene was your favorite?

Not knowing what the twist would be with Jarlaxle involved

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

............maybe

Any additional comments?

Listen to it!!!!!!

Rushed ending

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Mr. Salvatore is as always very good. I think it was maybe the book was too short

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending was anti climatic. We all knew the orcs would lose ofcz. However with the massive build up and dire situation the Silver Marches were in, the final battle and ending was just too short and undetailed. Its hard to measure distances but the orc army had travelled for weeks out of Dark Arrow and an army simply isnt routed that far, that fast, no matter how many dragons are around, with no supplies alone for 100k orcs they would have all died of thirst and stavation. The retreat will slow and so will the hunting victorious army as men, orcs and beast's get tired. Then armies must reform and resume a steady progress, because if the routed army can rally before the chattered attackers you may yet lose the battle.

It just felt after the orcs where defeated, the ending couldn't come fast enough, and viola
ready for new adventures. Not at all as good or believable as the end to the Obuld war.

Did Victor Bevine do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

Mr. Bevine did a good job as ususal, as i personally listen to audiobooks at work with noice and such, the very very soft spoken dialogue can been too whispered as times, but i understand the effect he tries to get.

Was Vengeance of the Iron Dwarf worth the listening time?

It was well worth the time, my criticism above aside it was a good enough book and another listen may soften me.
