In the second book of the Companions Codex, the latest series in the New York Times best-selling saga of dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden, R.A. Salvatore picks up with the fan-favorite storyline of dwarf king Bruenor Battlehammer and his bloody feud with the orc kingdom of Many Arrows.
As the changes wrought by the Sundering begin to take hold across the Forgotten Realms, the orcs of Many Arrows decide to take advantage of the chaos and lay siege to the dwarf kingdoms of the Silver Marches, including Mithral Hall. When word of the assaults reach Drizzt and his Companions, Bruenor - the dwarf king who had agreed to a treaty with the orcs more than a century ago - plots revenge.
