    • Standard R.A. Salvatore Biased Review Caveat: Bob Salvatore is one of my favorite authors and has been for 20+ years; he’s also, amongst the writers I’ve had the good fortune to meet and/or interview, one of the nicest and most generous with his time. So, any book that has his name on the cover gets an extra bump up the review scale compared to if the same book had been written by someone not named Bob Salvatore.Also—MAJOR SPOILERS TO FOLLOW! (You’ve been warned via typographical shoutin [...]

    • I am a loyal Salvatore fan and I enjoyed this book, however I am also pissed off at this point (more on that later). I will admit the writing is slightly more focused, we get less descriptions on sword play and a tad more insights into magical details and trinkets which i thought was lacking in the previous books. The plot is not what I expected with a title like Maestro, referring to Jarlaxle. I still liked the main story and the side story with the host tower but as a loyal fan, i cant help bu [...]

    • A really good book. I am biased as I am a huge Drizzt Do'Urden fan. This book tied up a lot of loose ends and some end games coming to fruition from previous book and series. So it was a very enjoyable read for me. However there were problems in the book and writing style. The first a lot of stroy arcs were repetitive from former stories. The second thing is at the critical moment of a fight were someone is about to win or lose he cuts to another characters story, making me wanting to rush throu [...]

    • ARC from Netgalley for an honest review.Possible Spoilers. Read at your own risk.Maestro, Book 2 of the Homecoming Trilogy and overall Book 29 of the Legend of Drizzt Saga, continues the current D&D arc "Rage of Demons" and throws some major dilemmas our hero's way. Much like the previous title "Archmage" and its causing us to ask whether the title referred to Gromph or Catti-Brie, "Maestro" also presents us with a few options for its namesake. Is the "Maestro" Jarlaxle, who graces the cover [...]

    • 7.5/10The second book in the Homecoming trilogy proves a much better continuation than Archmage was in the continuing war of the drow, as Salvatore shows that he still can bring some entertaining stories in this long series.Of course, Maestro has also its flaws, most importantly with Gromph’s parts which I didn’t like as he doesn’t feel anymore like the character that I, so long ago, loved; but, nevertheless, Salvatore has managed to make a good enough story to keep those flaws aside as Dr [...]

    • There will be lots of SPOILERS below. You've been warned!This book was really dark. Drizzt books are usually full of hope and companionship and Drizzt being the champion of Light, fighting darkness. Not this one. Sure, since the death of the Companions back in The Ghost King and Gauntlgrym, the Drizzt books got a little darker, but this got darker still. Drizzt journeys to Menzobarrenzan, his birth place, the dark and twisted City of Spiders, the place he swore he would never return to, to rescu [...]

    • This newest Drizzt book held my attention, but for the latter half of the book, I found myself thinking, “what the…?” I like deep, philosophical discussions, but this was just strange. Throughout the last few books, we have been led to believe that Drizzt is, if not a Chosen of, then at least favored by Mielikki, and perhaps even Lolth, though he would clearly never acknowledge the latter. But now I am truly curious where this is going, and in some aspects, find myself disappointed. Becaus [...]

    • I don't know what to say really Let me start with the good points, that's a shorter list. 1. We still have Drizzt. 2. We still have Drizzt after all. 3. No orcs. 4. Gromph. 5. No 10 page-long combat scenes.But that's the end of it. We have Jarlaxle, but he is far from his best shape these days. And what else do we have? The same ol' story over and over again. How long has it been? For like 10-12 volumes? Drizzt thinks Catti-brie is dead, but she is still alive, then he thinks she is dead, but sh [...]

    • 3.5 stars. Drizzt. Ah Drizzt. I love this series. He doesn't appear before the 25% mark but I hardly noticed because the titular character truly shines through most of the tale. What else? Lots of drow politics, a wicked Mistress, a wonderful Catti-Brie and brilliant battles (also Entreri. Can I ever get enough of this one? Hardly! Go, go Artemis!).I like this very questioning Drizzt.Oh and I get it. Magical pouches are handy and Cattie-Brie reverts to a lovely dwarven brogue when she is off-bal [...]

    • As always these books are easy to read. There is not a great depth to the plot, but they are faced paced and fun. This book is more of the same, and follows Drizzt as he returns to Menzoberranzan, as the series title "Homecoming" suggests. All the old familiar characters are there, with a couple of new ones. Downsides are it all feels a bit samey, and the ending seemed rushed to me. Good fun to read if you don't want to think too hard.

    • I enjoyed this read as well. RA Salvatore keeps me following multiple lines of plot like a master puppeteer. I've moved on to the next book 'Hero' as soon as I could. The only detraction I have is that the ending battle feels like the ending of Eye of the World; like it was cut short for publishing deadlines before it was ready to be released. I'd love to see a more expansive discussion of the last battle.

    • Salvatore definitely does not skimp on the action in Maestro, Book 32 of "The Legend of Drizzt" (Book 2 of "Homecoming"). But then, he never does.Overall, he provides a great continuation for the story he has wrought since The Companions, bringing together almost all of the characters from the The Companions, the "Companions Codex" trilogy and, of course, Archmage, to face problems that could have worldwide ramifications. He does this very well, but a few things he chose to do weakened the story [...]

    • Didn't even get 50 pages in and wow, more rape. Nope. I'm done with this series and this author. I've loved the Drizzt series for years, but no more. I came to these books to escape that Game of Thrones crap. -_-

    • I've been a fan of R.A. Salvatore's books and to say I really enjoyed Maestro. It was hard to put down once I started. There were a few sections that were quite terrifying and some that made me chuckle. Overall a good read. I can't wait for the next book!

    • As an avid fan of the Forgotten Realms and a diligent reader of all of the works set within it, Maestro was a must-buy for me. I was anticipating this particular book for other reasons as well, which I'll go into later in this review. Having read all of Salvatore's FR books, I went in with both a basic idea of what to expect and an idea of what would most likely be missing. I'll admit that I'm more than a little jaded when it comes to Bob's work, so I was more than a little pleasantly surprised [...]

    • SPOILERSThis is one of the worst books Salvatore ever wrote, possibly THE worst.Why? Because Drizzt goes back to Menzoberranzan, AGAIN, like in Starless Night (another epic failure book), this time with Jarlaxe and Entreri. - Drizzt starts bickering with Entreri, with the lousy excuse that it's the Demogorgon bad influence, but those 2 are the only ones affected. The rest of the Underdark seems not really affected. So it feels more like a pathetic tentative of rekindling the animosity between th [...]

    • This book was an easy read, but the story went nowhere and the ending was anticlimactic.The title was 'Maestro', which referred to Jarlaxle's masterful manipulation of events and major players in Faerun, but by about a third of the way into the story, he's already lost control. He ends up at the mercy of his enemies, stripped of his power, and has to be saved!Drizz't has an insanity problem and no one notices, even though he starts attacking teammates. Well, Jarlaxle kind of acknowledges it, but [...]

    • Maestro proves that Salvatore still has a worthwhile tale left to tell in the Drizzt saga. This is the sequel to The Dark Elf Trilogy Collector's Edition that should have been written a long time ago. Salvatore takes us back to Menzoberranzan with Drizzt, Jarlaxle, and Artemis Entreri fighting alongside each other. As they travel through the Underdark, they slowly start to lose their sanity and question reality; this is a unique twist and new concept in Salvatore's writings - at times, he forces [...]

    • The book was good. A good book it was. Good, was the book. Bookedy book book. Books here books there, books everywhere. Blah, blah. Yakity, shmakity. Tweedle dee, tweedle dum. Kick me in my bum.The book was good. A good book it was. Good, was the book. Bookedy book book. Books here books there, books everywhere. Blah, blah. Yakity, shmakity. Tweedle dee, tweedle dum. Kick me in my bum. Don't force me to write a review

    • Like all the previous books in this series, I rather enjoyed this one. I did find it a bit odd how certain Drizzt was about having an experience rather like Wulfgar did when he was tortured by a demon, since Drizzt is rarely so certain about much of anything, but I chalked it up to the influence of a demon. It had all the twists and turns you would expect, as well some rather epic fight scenes, as well, and it was nice to see Artemis Entreri again and continue his story. I am curious to see what [...]

    • Amazing fights! I really enjoy the battles scenes but at the end i was disapointed with the great battle against the Demogorgon, i was expecting a full epic battle right here, anyhow it was a good crossroad in the end, I´m feeling in a sad and anxious mood since there is just one last book of Drizzt by the moment.

    • I would buy this book again, and again One of the best books in the entire series of Drizzt books, Ever! Thats no small feat as Salvatore rises to a new level of story telling, all the characters are filled out and we see all the greats in one book. I strongly recommend that you pick up this trilogy of stories if you have fallen out of the books for awhile

    • This is the best drizzt book I've read in awhile. I was annoyed at Archmage's laborious setup and find the dwarf centric stories more boring. But Maestro has a lot more focus. The antagonist, Yvonnel, feels more weighty than anything in recent memory. The Carrie-Brie subplot is the weakest part for me, but still enjoyable. Five stars as far as the legend of drizzt goes.

    • Good read but very rushedThis is an interesting continuation but the end felt a little too rushed to try to end the book. Perhaps another 100 pages is required to clearly describe the final battle.

    • Just like (view spoiler)[ Drizzt (hide spoiler)] this book is making me lose the will to live. I have 2 more chapters to finish and I care so little about what happens that I just can't be bothered. Don't read this if you've ever been a fan of any of the characters.

    • ოქროა <3 Drizzt be like - Mama I'm coming home! მენზონბერანზანის გარშემო დემოგორგონი დააბოტებს, უბრალოდ ამბავი ხო არაა, დემონების პრინცია ტიპი. მარა სიგიჟე პიროვნებები ბრუნდებიან, გენიალური ტრიო არტემისი, დრიც [...]

    • Great workI will admit some of the last few books I found lacking but Maestro was a return to the old days. Very enjoyable

    • Homecoming Bla bla bla. What happened Sal? You to tired from playing games? I love Driest. This was mediocre at best. Wasted money.

    • Great readCouldn't put it down an 8 hour readathon. I read it the entire day except for a few breaks, that's how good it is.

    • Jarlaxle at his best (worse?): always ending with the biggest prise even if it wasn't really planed like that to begin with. One of the best of all the serie.
