Read Rise of the King Companions Codex #2; Legend of Drizzt #26

Ling saga of dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden RA Salvatore picks up with the fan favorite storyline. More reviews and no fluff on the blog In this second book of the Companions Codex we continue the story with the reincarnated Companions of the Hall with a large war looming with Orcs again instigated by the Drow againHonestly while reading the first part of the book I was pretty sure I had read this book before so similar is the plot theme to the Thousand Orcs right down to the bickering of the goodly folk While in Realm time a century has passed in real time it s only been some years since the previous Orc war and it feels like an old hat Personally I also find it very irritating that given all the effort given in the previous saga into Orcs are people too now the whole line of Obould and his dream of a real Orc kingdom is swept aside and the whole race is again evil because we re evil Similarly the conversion of Tos un back into evil feels forced almost if the author wanted to drop all the developments done in the past to return things to the way they were the Companions are young and on the road again and the only person allowed to be good among the evil races is Drizzt This aside the story flows smoothly if predictably and the main characters are themselves Of special note is Regis who is finally given things to do and Wulfgar who is still being given the short stick All in all it s yet another Drizzt book but that is not all a bad thing I ve been reading these for 20 years now and definitel ywill be reading the next one when it comes out I just wish we got another book like the Companions in the Sundering series character development less descriptions of perfect parries

In the second book of the Companions Codex the latest series in the New York Times best sel. no need for SPOILER tags since nothing new was presented in this bookWhat are the prime ingredients for a newer Salvatore Realms book1 Salvatore reminding the reader that Guenhwyvar weighs 600 pounds2 Salvatore providing the reader with detailed mechanical descriptions of Catti BrieRuiah the clericwizardarcherseerfire elementalistblessed by Mystrahigh and mighty Chosen of Mielikki casting Flaming Hands repeatedly3 RegisSpider Parrafin wax wondrously producing a potionsalveointmentpoison that conveniently gets him or the Companions out of a tight spot4 Salvatore dousing the reader with an unending barrage of fightsskirmishesbattles5 And the newest ingredient Salvatore abusing the exclamation point to terminate a sentence outside of dialogue For those of you who don t know what an exclamation point is it s what authors use when they don t think the reader is clever enough to realize the gravity or importance of any given sentence I didn t actually count but if I had to estimate there were 150 200 instances where an exclamation point was used in this manner Sometimes two or three were used on a single page That should bother you the reader or I m a bearded gnomeWith Rise of the King Salvatore certainly provides all of the ingredients mentioned above Sadly if you remove the plethora of combat scenes which can be enjoyable in moderation the remaining text that is left standing does not support a story Recycled themes from previous Drizzt novels abound in the second installment of the Companions Codex and Salvatore fails to present anything new or substantialI m a Realms completionist so I ll continue to read all of the Drizzt books But it should also be noted that I m a devout follower of Ilmater as well

    Another solid installment of the new old adventures of Drizzt and CompanionsThe battles and skirmishes are always nice and choreographed Salvatore has a real knack for describing swashbuckling adventures and I never get tired of his storytelling However the overall feeling is the same I once experienced after

    ARC provided by Netgalley and Wizards for an honest reviewAnyone who has read any of my previous reviews knows that I have been involved with DD for 24 years and reading the novels for about the same amount of time I love fantasy novels and I count R A Salvatore as one of my top three authors of all time I grew up reading the Drizz

    Rise of the King is the second in the Companion Codex This book was obviously meant to be the dark middle chapter of the series so I’m assuming that this is a trilogy The book continues the story began in book one which was begun in the much longer series that or less ended with the first book of the Sundering All this taken into account
