Nobody wants a dark elf living among people wood elves, dwarves, etc. There, I just gave you away the plot of the whole book, all pages of it. Does it sound boring? If it does it is because the book is boring; the most boring one of the trilogy. When I started on this one I was excited.
I hoped to see interesting interactions between Drizzt and the surface d Drizzt the Dark Elf comes to the surface world and tries to find his place in there. I hoped to see interesting interactions between Drizzt and the surface dwellers.
I hoped to see how Drizzt would fit in the new society. Well, he did not fit and all the interactions I saw was people – I am using this term in a broad sense – sending him away from yet another city gates. This was not-so-subtle message about racial prejudice Drizzt is a dark elf, get it? I also thought about the following while reading: It did not help any that Drizzt was on practically non-stop guilt trip for something which was not his fault in the least: Somehow I missed the moment where a badass guy who survived all the double-crossings of the Drow society became Mary Sue, or Gary Stu if you wish.
His character became one-dimensional in his goodness and misery. It is shame as the beginning of the book was quite good. Imagine one of the best – if not the best – fighters of the society where practically all males are raised to be ones. This guy is accompanied by his pet panther, the grown-up version of the guy below: These are very efficient predators, by the way. So which non-magical force in the Universe can make these two run away? This particular episode was hilarious and made me laugh out loud.
Unfortunately the book could not keep up with the fairly exciting beginning. It was still a decent read, 3-star decent which did not kill my interest in further Drizzt’s adventures in the least.
So as I already mentioned this is good enough but not great novel and the conclusion of the Drizzt origin trilogy. View all 3 comments. Drizzt Do’Urden attempts to find himself on the surface; arguably a more fascinating journey of self-exploration than all the young and rich Westerners who go to find themselves in Thailand or India no offense to Thailand or India.
Anyway, Sojourn is another enjoyable instalment in the saga of Drizzt. This one wraps up the trilogy neatly, takes it into more interesting territories of storytelling, and sets everything if for where Salvatore’s story all began: Mar 30, Gavin rated it liked it Shelves: This final book in the Dark Elf trilogy got off to a flying start for the first third of the book and then rather disappointingly stagnated.
I thought Drizzt hitting the surface ot would be a ton of fun, and the early stages were promising with a few hilarious interactions and plenty of drama. The story arc involving the farm family Drizzt encounters was excellent. Unfortunately it was all downhill after that with Drizzt legen aimlessly plodding around fighting random monsters.
Which was actual This final book kegend the Dark Elf trilogy got off to a flying start for the first third of the book and then rather disappointingly stagnated. Which was actually a major flaw of the second book that was not sojuorn
There was a multitude of villains, and despite a few horrifying acts, none of them ever managed to come across as equals of the Dark Elves we meet in the fabled Underdark city of Menzoberranzan. The supporting cast was also rather disappointing.
Drizzt found few friends and the only one who got much screen time was the aging Montolio. He was a likable enough guy who sought to help Drizzt, but there is no hiding from the fact that the time Drizzt spent with him was utterly boring.
Things picked up a bit towards the very end so that hints at more promising happenings for the next book in the series. Victor Bevine gave another good performance. View all 7 comments. I didn’t like this as much as the other two. I believe the first in this trilogy was my favorite, and then it slowly started going down hill from there. Drizzt Do’Urden has travelled out of the caves into the surface world. He struggles to find his place in a world where dark elves are feared, and where very few can get past the color of his skin.
This book was very slow moving to me. As Drizzt works hard in order to overcome prejudices, there was a lot of down time. He spent the majority of this b I didn’t like this as much as the other two. He spent the majority of this book attempting to get to know the difference races of the surface, usually unsuccessfully. Disappointing after the exciting world of the Underdark.
So I definitely don’t recommend reading the epilogue because now I feel like I’ve been spoiled for the next trilogy in the world. I decided to read these in chronological order, so don’t read that epilogue if you’re doing the same as I am. Other than that last little bit, I really enjoyed Sojourn. These books are nothing crazy deep, but they’re really fun, enjoyable reads packed with a lot of fighting and action scenes.

Here, Drizzt has made it to the surface and is attempting to find a place where he belongs. His struggles were pretty on par for what I thought this book would tackle. I liked the different side characters he meets especially Mooshie because Mooshie has his dark side. The monks he interacts with also made me laugh out loud, so overall I just had a great time. I hope the ones that are alive at the end of the book pop back into the story at some point.
I’m looking forward to seeing where Drizzt’s adventure goes next in the Icewind Dale Trilogy. View all 4 comments. There was a lot going on in this one. Drizzt spends like 7 years on the surface through a series of tragic events and misunderstandings. He finds acceptance though from afar from one of his surface elf kin and a very old blind human ranger.
Dungeons & Dragons: The Legend of Drizzt Vol. 3: Sojourn
He defeats an Orc leader and tricks a dragon along the way, all while getting chased by bounty hunter Roddy McGristle, a crazed and less imposing version of John Wick. Drizzt heads to Icewind Dale, a “place for rogues”, thinking he can find some acceptance. Drizzt sets up camp near a Dwarven hall and finds contentment here.
After a last confrontation with Roddy, he finally finds his “home” alongside dwarven king Bruenor and his adopted human daughter, Cattie-brie. My favorite part of this book was Cattie-brie. Drizzt and Cattie-brie are sweet cinnamon rolls and I want to read more about them immediately. Cattie-brie’s energy and zest for life verily bubbled over. In her presence, the drow could not recall his haunting memories, could only feel good about his decision to save the elven child those many years before.
Cattie-brie’s singsong voice and the careless way she flipped her flowing hair about her shoulders lifted the burden of guilt from Drizzt’s back as surely as a giant could have hoisted a rock. In this book Drizzt is trying to live in the real world now and no longer in the Underdark.
He is trying to learn how to live in the sunlight without going blind so to speak and traverse this strange new world.

He still has his wonderful black panther friend, Guenhwyvar. Together they have to find a place they can call home while fighting off giants, orcs, bad humans, etc. Drizzt finds some good peopl www. Drizzt sojpurn some good people along the way that he becomes friends with and stays with for some time.
I really loved Montolio. He was an old blind ranger living in the mountains, he trains Drizzt in the human language and about things in the world.
