Description from Goodreads

 In the 3rd book of the #4 New York Times best-selling Neverwinter Saga, Drizzt draws his swords once more to aid his friends. His lover, Dahlia Sin’felle, can speak of nothing but the moment she will face the Netherese lord Herzgo Alegni once again. Drizzt has already followed a trail of vengeance beside Dahlia. Can he justify one more battle to settle a grudge he does not understand? Artemis Entreri too seeks vengeance. He offers to aid Dahlia in her mission to destroy Alegni. But Charon’s Claw, Alegni’s sentient sword, dominates Entreri’s movements—if not his mind. And then there’s the way Entreri looks at Dahlia. Can Drizzt trust his old foe?

Gauntlgrym. The place of Bruenors death, of pwent and supposedly jarlaxle and athrogrates deaths as well. A place of heartache for Drizzt, and now he must go back. Along with Artemis and Dahlia he they must throw Charon’s Claw into the primordial pit and destroy it, and thus destroying Artemis. It wont be easy however, Herzgo Alegni is still around and bent on reclaiming Dahlia and getting revenge on Artemis, and there are new players in the game, a host of Drow who seek the mighty forges of Gauntlgrym. 

 Charon’s Claw started off slow for me, it took me a while to really get into it, but once I did it became very, very interesting. There is always action and intrigue and subplots and that is what I like most about these books, you always get a look at the situation from others’ eyes. 

There are some nice twists and a little hint of maybe someone important coming back, which I hope he does! Always expertly written, Salvatores books are sure to keep you hooked from the get-go.

    Unquestionably imagine that that you said. Your favourite justification seemed to be on
    the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked whilst other people think about issues that they just
    do not understand about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also outlined out the whole
    thing without having side-effects , folks can take
    a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you
