Drizzt Do'Urden emerges from the Underdark into a world of eye-searing light and bizarre new creatures – a world teeming with life and almost limitless danger. For a dark elf born into the ruthless matriarchy of Menzoberranzan, the World Above can be a confusing place, but it can also be a place of second chances, new beginnings, and unimagined friendships. All he has to do is live long enough to convince the surface dwellers he means them no harm.
