Legacy is the seventh book of the Drizzt Saga and the first of the Legacy of the Drow Series. All the previous stories in the saga are great but it wasn't until this series that the conflicts took battles to an epic scale. As always the action sequences are amazing and the suspense will keep you on edge. The cast of characters is incredibly diverse and the narrator does a tremendous job giving each one their own voice. This is Sherlock Holmes meets The Return Of The King. Just remember if you skip the previous novels you may feel a little lost at first but Salvatore does a pretty good job in bringing people up to speed. And fortunately despite only having this book Legacy on preorder, audible is offering the complete series for sale on the day it was released.
I recommend the whole series for anyone interested in books that take place in fantasy settings from age 8+, it does have graphic fight sequences but it lacks the gorey details.

What did you love best about The Legacy?
The way R. A. Salvatore weaved the story together like a jigsaw puzzle, fitting each piece perfectly as he brought the story together.
I was a little worried at first. I thought maybe Mr. Salvatore had lost his touch, as some of the characters weren't behaving like they normally do. But as I stated, like a jigsaw puzzle, with each piece connecting, things started to make more and more sense as Mr. Salvatore weaved his story together like a masterpiece painting.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Legacy?
Wulfgar, Catie-brie and Bruenor's battle with the yochlol and the drow party from Menzoberranzan. It was a very powerful and emotional moment.
Have you listened to any of Victor Bevine’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have listened to all of Victor Bevine's previous narration of this epic series. And once again, he does an amazing job. I can't imagine anyone else voicing Drizzt Do'Urden but him. I've gotten to the point where I hear his voice while reading the books in the series, when I am not listening to it that is.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, it was tough to stop listening. In fact, I had to buy the next book in the series right away after this one.
Any additional comments?
I thought I would have to wait for the next book in the series, like I had to wait for Audible to release this one after the Iced Dale Trilogy, which I admit was a tough wait. But to my surprise, Audible release all four books to this series on the same day. Celebration!!! Good job to Audible.
