Barbaric hordes of blood-hungry humanoids sweep across the Spine of the World, and thousands of humans and dwarves lie in their path.
The Spine of the World has many defenders, not the least of whom are Drizzt Do'Urden and his powerful friends. But the Companions have grown dependent on one other. When they're separated by enemies, time, and death, can even a warrior as cunning and mighty as Drizzt stand alone against an army?
One of the greatest characters of the fantasy genre returns to the front lines and is drawn beyond, deep into enemy territory. He'll need every ounce of skill and courage he possesses to stay alive.
